Back to work with a bang and great news that I’ll be in Vegas in May @ SPC20

For those of you that are connected to me socially or read my previous blog post about disruptive technology in Helsinki, you’ll know that 2019 ended on a bit of a health downer.

Passing a Param object to a SharePoint PowerApp list form and why it doesn’t work.

I spent a lot of my time with SharePoint classic, building small business apps using JSLink and JavaScript embedded in the pages. Nothing really fancy, just things like pre-populating fields for Parent/Child relationship lists and things like that.

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 …

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.

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 …

Microsoft Ignite – Day 2

Wow, suffice to say that Day 2 of Ignite did not disappoint the SharePoint crowd one bit, with a whole host of announcements coming out during Jeff Tepers much awaited session this morning. As usual, the session started with a few stats that outline just how popular SharePoint and Office 365 has become. More than …

Helping your users achieve Seamless sign-on with Office 365 and ADFS

Understanding the terms A large number of my customers use ADFS to enable single sign-on for their users but I quite often get calls to help them understand why their users are seeing the California Highway screen to select a username rather than connecting straight in as a seamless sign-on. Some of this confusion comes …
