Injecting text using Custom column formats in SharePoint Online

As I said in my post yesterday, I’ve not played with column formats much since they first came out. I liked what you could do and could see where Microsoft were going, but at the time they lacked the power of JSLink display templates and I just didn’t really have anything that I couldn’t do …

Using Excel style expressions in SharePoint Custom Column Formatters

Those that have read articles on my blog in the past know that I’ve been a massive evangelist for the use of JSLink for list and library customisations in the past. Judging by the traffic we still see to the SPCSR Display Templates GitHub Repo, JSLink still remains a perfectly valid way to create custom …

SharePoint 2019 has reached General Availability

So you may have noticed that I’ve been a bit remiss in posting recently.. that’s mostly down to the current chaos in my house while we build a large extension. Living out of two rooms juggling work and build activities doesn’t leave much time to getting thoughts down on paper. I’ve been spending what spare …

SPSNL wrap-up and my Fourth (Third) MVP award received.

For the first couple of years, January the 1st was always a nervous day despite generally nursing a hangover. There would be some frantic monitoring of the mail box (including the junk mail) until the notification popped up from the MVP Global Administrator congratulating you on being re-awarded for another year. Then in 2017, Microsoft …

Enforced MFA for Office 365 Admins – Don’t get caught out!

I’ve been working on conditional access for a while now with a client, trying to find the right balance of command and control versus usability for the organisation. Just as I thought we were there, I noticed a new policy called “Baseline policy: Require MFA for admins (Preview)” had appeared. Given that this is buried …

Configuring default Office 365 Labels using PowerShell

Office 365 Labels over Information Management Policies? Office 365 labels are starting to get quite prolific across the stack now and I’m starting to see better uses for them over SharePoint Retention policies. If you’re not familiar with Office 365 labels, my MVP colleague Joanne Klein has a great blog post from last year that …

ContentTypes added to SPO using PNP PoSH not working as intended!

I’m in the process of building a large scale DMS solution for a client and part of this work is deploying a lot of content types to various libraries. I wrote the deployment scripts a couple of months ago and they have been working just fine.. or so I thought. I’m using the PNP PowerShell …

Examining the MoveTo functionality in OneDrive and SharePoint

In an earlier blog post, I took a closer look at the CopyTo function that has been available in the Modern OneDrive and SharePoint experience for some time now. Whilst this was a definite improvement on the previous CopyTo functionality available in SharePoint, it was still a few steps short of what would be needed …

Classic Site collection deletion issues with Office 365 Retention labels

UPDATE – Fellow MVP Joanne Klein reminded me of the Retention Containers via twitter. These are used to wrap up expired groups and their content when a Retention Policy label is in play. It would appear that this is the behaviour that we’re seeing below in Classic Site collection. This actually makes a lot of …

Examining the CopyTo function in SharePoint Online

In a recent blog post on the TechCommunity site (You can read it here), Chris McNulty highlighted the improvements coming to the CopyTo and MoveTo functionality that currently exists in Document libraries  SharePoint Online. This new functionality should start dropping into targeted release tenants around the date of this post so i decided to just …
