But what of those such as my associate who doesn't use Office 365 and relies solely on Gmail free?
Hopefully we are referring to the same thing.

My  point is if you or your associate already uses the desktop software and you are offering an option to sync, in my opinion, you are better off suggesting to to switch to office 365 version with the desktop software option.  Not only does this keep you up to date with the latest version, it also ads many other benefits and one of those is the ability to sync and install on up to 5 of your devices including your mobile.

If your associate is not part of your domain, then you can send and receive appointment/event requests that will get added to your calendar.

Hi Scott,

Hopefully we are referring to the same thing.
I hope we are too because some of your suggestions are starting to appear circular to me and already discussed?

My  point is if you or your associate already uses the desktop software and you are offering an option to sync, in my opinion, you are better off suggesting to to switch to office 365 version with the desktop software option.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but here's you're suggesting I should tell him to buy himself an Office 365 Subscription, are you not?

Despite there being non-business Office 365 subscriptions available for home users which are (in my view) so affordable that I have difficulty understanding why almost everyone isn't using 365 in one fashion or another, "he" chooses not to. Perhaps he's not willing to pay for any sort of recurring subscription at all? Or perhaps he just dislikes or doesn't trust Microsoft to the point where he won't even consider buying a standalone version of Microsoft Office or Outlook? But his reasons in this scenario don't really matter.

Indeed, if memory serves, from earlier conversations with him I recall him telling me that he chooses to use Libre Office as his desktop Office Suite solution and so far as I'm concerned, that's his choice and fine. I don't think it would be appropriate for me to suggest he reach into his pocket to purchase an Office 365 subscription just to satisfy my needs of him being able to continue setting appointments and tasks into "my" calendar. He uses Google free, I use Google free, so the answer is already there - the syncing issue was "my" problem, not his. You disagree?

Not only does this keep you up to date with the latest version, it also ads many other benefits and one of those is the ability to sync and install on up to 5 of your devices including your mobile.
Whether or not I agree with you here is not the point. Your argument for using the solution should be taken up with him - not me. But no, I will not reveal his identity and have no idea if he's even following this discussion.

If your associate is not part of your domain, then you can send and receive appointment/event requests that will get added to your calendar.
He's not a part of my domain and does everything online related to the calendar issue in Google. That all works, but since Google removed the option for their Free subscribers to use the Gmail/Outlook synchronizing tool to all but paid subscribers of their G-Suite package, then I can tell you from bitter personal experience that while it's still possible to synchronize via workarounds (some of which you yourself pointed out), time zones will not synchronize correctly, hence the reason I asked for expert help at this forum in the first place, and the eventual finding of the Sync2 solution which resolved the problem completely.

I think we've gone the full circle. Of have I missed your point completely?  :)

Regards, Andrew

If you are a SharePoint user, you must know how tricky it is to perform SharePoint migration. A lot more practice, planning, evaluation, and then execution is needed to make sure that the data is safe and secure. You have to ensure that the data is not deleted or missed in the process of migration.


So, before you start the migration, let's have a look at the migration checklist that will help you ensure success in the whole process.


SharePoint Migration Checklist


When you go for manual SharePoint migration, you have to look after below-mentioned checklist:


  • Get ready with a detailed inventory of environment which includes all assets and customizations. 
  • Remove all old environments such as unwanted data, web items, and more.
  • Test all the components if everything is organized or if any issue is found, get it fixed.
  • Analyze new environment configurations and then configure the required settings at destination environment. It is like planning and plotting new home.
  • Cordial communication with users 
  • Now you can start the migration 
  • You need to put the system in read-only mode until the migration process gets completed.
  • After the migration is completed, you need to review and make sure that everything works perfectly. 


So, a lot of things to do but do not worry, as Microsoft has been making the things easier for you.


Well, you no longer need to face challenges of SharePoint migration as Microsoft has introduced the SharePoint Migration Tool that allows you to migrate your files from SharePoint on-premises document libraries and shift them to SharePoint. If you are an Office 365 user, then you can move to OneDrive and Office 365.


Microsoft has developed software for migration purposes, and you are allowed to migrate from a single file to multiple file sets. The tool is using the latest technology; therefore, bringing your information to the cloud. It also takes up intelligence, latest collaboration, and security features with Office 365.


The software is completely free, and the best part is, you aren't bound to be a global admin or a SharePoint admin in Office 365 to operate the software. To migrate data by using this tool, you need the write access to the destination SharePoint Online site collection.


  • Download the tool by visiting SharePoint Migration Tool Version 1 if you want the current release or you may also visit SharePoint Migration Tool V2 Beta release if you want to use the newly released V2 beta version.
  • Check the check box to agree to terms of service and privacy policy and click the Install button.
  • Click Yes to allow the installation.


Once the tool has been installed, use it.


While Microsoft has provided a solution make a note that you first need to learn the whole process to use it. If you do not have much time to go around the learning curve, then you can look for a systematically designed and developed SharePoint migration tool named Kernel Migrator for SharePoint. This tool does not need a steep learning curve as it has a systematic interface to guide you through the process. 


Kernel Migrator for SharePoint


SharePoint migration has been so easy with Kernel Migrator for SharePoint. With Kernel Migrator, we can even migrate files that have access permissions applied, so security is also ensured here.


Features


  • SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016 migration
  • File system Migration from Local and remote servers
  • File server to SharePoint migration
  • Migrate File System content to OneDrive, Google Drive, and SharePoint
  • Automate your migration with its scheduler 
  • It can migrate everything from file to folder or documents, views, workflows, and many more


Kernel Migrator also performs a Pre-Migration Analysis to uncover the problems we might face during real migration. In Pre-Migration Analysis it checks all values of the content like names and type of file. Kernel Migrator for SharePoint also lets you migrate your data in bulk be it a file system or SharePoint library. It can also transfer data concurrently in multiple sessions.


With Kernel Migrator, everything can be migrated from source to target server.


You can even automate your migration jobs with its inbuilt scheduler. Automating is a time-saving process, and it is beneficial for bulk migration. You can automate the migration process using CSV file, and you can also add some conditions like what to migrate, and you don't even need to assist. It's entirely hassle-free with no user assistance needed.

Thank you so much Andrew for your time,
I will defenetely share results as soon as I sort this out.
Meanwhile I would like to share some details. I have tried to set up outlook using this account on fresh installed PC and sorted out the "User Profile" and Certificate issues. After trying all options I am confident that this is not general issue and precisely this account related issue. Cose' when I try to install other gmail account on that PC it goes smooth. Checked incoming mails and outgoing mails. Account never sended more than 100 mails per month - so account is not spammer. (In fact this is embassy's non essential communication address). Likewise never received mail noting it was blocked. I will use "Send feedback" option right away and will share results if I receive. Many and sincere thanks for your time and attention. Have a nice life. Arvin.

That is a really useful article, Andrew. Thanks for sharing.

A question though, back in the "old days" by my standards, you weren't supposed to share fonts because many of them were sold separately and were considered to be under the software license of the product they worked with. I would assume if you can get the font from Google that it is safe, but are there still instances of those IP fonts today that aren't supposed to be shared?

Hi Brian,

An excellent observation. With regards to safety of available fonts, I can only assume that all submissions are checked by Google in this respect before a listing is accepted, so while never beyond the realms of possibility, am confident that a malicious font download is unlikely.

I'm sure there are many fonts to be found on the web which are not supposed to be shared as you've rightly pointed out, however with every font downloaded from the Google Fonts site, there is also a license agreement included within the downloaded Zip file that specifies which usage license the font has been released under.

In the case of the illustrated "Lato" font used in my example, that particular font has been released under the Sil Open Font License (OFL) and comes with the following conditions when downloaded.
PERMISSION & CONDITIONS
Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of the Font Software, to use, study, copy, merge, embed, modify, redistribute, and sell modified and unmodified copies of the Font Software, subject to the following conditions,
The list of exclusions are as one would expect for most open source material, such as preventing the sale of the font by itself etc, however for personal or commercial use within other products, there's no problem.  This could differ of course with each font that's made available so it always pays to check what rights are provided. Font families not available on Google Fonts and found on other font distribution sites would of course contain their own rules and restrictions, which should always be respected.

I hope that answers your questions and thank you for your feedback and up-vote. I very much appreciate it. Regards, Andrew

Many of you may be aware of the recent Google Docs scam emails that have been floating around coming from various people that you know. Here's a guide on identifying


How To Identify the Scam Email

You will see an email from someone you’ve had correspondence with (and in many cases know well) that contains the subject line stating that a document has been shared on Google Docs (example: John Smith has shared a document on Google Docs with you). You will not see your email address because it is in the bcc field, however you will see the email address hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh(AT)mailinator.com appear.



The message will contain a link saying Open in Docs. Do not click this. If for some reason you do, you will get prompted to sign into your Google account if you are not already signed in. Afterward, you will be prompted to give permission to “Google Docs” access to your email and contacts.



Clicking the info button (The “i” inside of the circle) will show developer information that contains a random Gmail account. Do NOT click the allow button, as it will send the scam message to your contacts. While the adversaries do not have your password, they will have access to read emails in your account as well as to send emails from it without the need for any sort of security check (both passwords and two factor authentication get bypassed).



How do I know if I’ve been affected?

If you clicked the Allow button, then you’re affected. And you may have heard back from acquaintances, friends, and family by now. Another way to know is to check your Sent messages, and see if any strange emails have been sent.


How do I fix the problem?

Go to the Permissions section of your Google account at https://myaccount.google.com/permissions to see the apps that have access to your account. Click the one that says “Google Docs”, then click the Remove button. (In this screenshot you will WhatsApp because it is an app that was given permissions from an Android phone) Optionally, you can change your password (even though the adversary never received it) as it a good security practice to change passwords periodically. Also please be sure to check your sent mail for the scam email. Alert the recipients that not to open the email and to delete it right away, and let them know what happened.

Thanks for the insightful article, as none of us can see Google (sorry Google) disappearing any time soon in the search industry or their impact on online marketing, how and what they do and the results that they deliver are very important to so many of us, errors we make can see sites disappear, quite literally over night, along with what can be a substantial loss of revenue. . So we keep our eyes, ears and minds sharp, changing or fine tuning as we go, I have have always played it safe and fortunately the algorithm changes have not impacted my clients in a great way, but the changes that we are having to undertake over the next few years are game changing.
