Microsoft SharePoint





Microsoft Sharepoint is a software platform and family of software products used for collaboration and web publishing combined. These capabilities include developing web sites, portals, intranets, content management systems, search engines, wikis, blogs, and other tools for business intelligence and collaboration. SharePoint has a Microsoft Office-like interface, and it is closely integrated with the Office suite.

I am loooking for Share Point migration Tool from On prem share Point 2010, 2013, 2016 to Office 365

has anyone experienced with this tools and can give some feedback

Folllowings are I found online.



A client has requested us to develop a custom search page that be able to query Sharepoint Library (via Sharepoint API) and also to query an in-house SQL Server database/table.
We have already developed the part that queries the Sharepoint site but for the SQL Server part we were recommended not to connect the search page using Javascript. Others, have recommended to use PowerApp, WebApp, etc. also someone suggested to use a Middleware, and finally someone recommended to use BCS ("Business Connectivity Services").

So my question is, what would you recommend to achieve this challenge?
I am testing some web parts in SharePoint 2019 that were developed for SharePoint 2010. I have installed Visual Studio 2019 on my dev server, and the projects have been upgraded when Visual Studio offered to do so.When I try to deploy a web part, I get the error: "Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': Cannot connect to the SharePoint site: http://ehnordic/default.aspx/. Make sure that this is a valid URL and the SharePoint site is running on the local computer. If you moved this project..."
I have double-checked the URL (it is an internal URL) and it is correct. Then why do I get this error?
Hello , i have sharepoint server and Office Online Server, i did all the configurations, installed the certificate and linked office with sharepoint, when users login to sharepoint portal everything works well except opening powerpoint online as shown in the screen , any help ?
We are looking to move files from our on premises file servers to SharePoint.  We want to have 100% cloud storage over the next year or so. Moving files to SharePoint would be our first step into that process.  

Do I need to backup the SharePoint files/folders to Azure?  I know SharePoint has revision history so users can see previous versions of files in case a file gets overwritten by mistake.  

Does SharePoint have a recycle bin for deleted files?

Does Microsoft provide redundancy for our SharePoint site in case they (Microsoft) have a failure?  

Any comments/suggestions about using SharePoint for file storage is appreciated.  

Question about Public sharing of a SharePoint site - If External Sharing Policy is set to "Anyone", does that mean anyone can access any part of the site, or just thepart that has been shared with a link?
I have an issue where an external client is trying to open and/or export content or documents from a list in SharePoint Online. They can access the site and see what is available but they cannot export or open them. They are using the IE browser as that is the only browser that can be used to export.  When they open the document to export (Excel), the document starts to open and they are presented with a dialog to accept the security notification.  This happens to everyone, including internal (not a problem).  After the dialog, it acts as if it is going to load the content into Excel, but they end up getting a page that says "Sorry, something went wrong" An unexpected error. The correlation id is all 0's, so that is not helpful. I suspect there are settings on the external users' laptops that will not allow them to pull the data in.  Or settings on the internal laptops that are not on the external laptops.  

Does anyone run into this issue and know the solution?

I run excel 2016 on a server and im trying to autorun a macro when the save button is clicked on the workbook I have open or if easier run it when workbook closed.

I need it to save the workbook thats open as normal to location it is at and also run the following macro in the background so people dont have to save twice.

 ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
        "xxxs://" _
        , FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False
End Sub

What im also trying to do is when it saves it to the sharepoint there will already be a file with the same name in it and so I need it overwritten with new file it saving,.

I have had a look at doing it via  autosave into one drive but this dont work.

Any Ideas?

I have a excel workbook that I want to automatically save in set  time periods to a sharepoint  file on office 365.

I just cannot get it to work on the one drive and only have one drive access via office365 and the documents im trying to get it from are on a network and I am using excel 2016 ,  It keeps asking me to update one drive and just doing nothing.

I have access to powershell and wondered if there was any other way I can do it as seen possibly a macro?

Any suggestions?

I have  workbooks that is on a network and im trying to save it to teams in office 365.  I have access to the one drive on office 365 too but I cant seem to be able to do an autoback up to it.

What it is that in the event of the network going down I can carry on via office 365 and save to that

Any ideas?
We are in the process of finding a replacement for our Forms Application because
Microsoft has retired Infopath 2013. Is there any software similar to Infopath
that would allow you to create sections on a form that would drop down based on selection?
We are currently using Sharepoint 2013 to host these forms.

does sharepoint 2013 foundation has this option like sharepoint 2010 foundation has?
This option shows page location.
I have several hundred sites on my SharePoint 2013 farm that I need to set to "No Access" by locking the site collection.  What I would like to do, is use a PowerShell script to read the list of URL's from a text file, loop through each one, and lock the site collection.  This is what I have so far, but need some assistance on getting it completed:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -erroraction SilentlyContinue
$Sites = Get-Content -Path e:\scripts\SitesToLock.txt
ForEach ($site in $Sites) 
  Set-SPSite -Identity $site.Url -LockState "NoAccess" }

Open in new window

I am planning Migrating our contents from SharePoint servers 2010, 2013 / file shares on prem to Office 365 Teams

This is for an enterprise environment in retail so we are using sharepoint heavily in our environment and we are currently in hybrid mode with office 365, sync users etc.

I am looking for my options, possibly I will be needing 3rd Tools, not sure this can be managed using native tools if there are such tools.

I briefly checked to see tools  there are on the net and followings i find

SPMT from microsoft, share point migration tool
SharePoint migration from Quest,

So, any experience /input appreciated

Hi Expert,
I have question regarding Power App Licences
Run single apps $10
and Run unlimited apps $40
That's mean after i have developed the app if only one users I have to pay $10 or This is for development Licence ?
for example if i have developed the App and if i need to send to unlimited users it's will cost $40 or  each user has to pay $40 .for example 100 users $4000?

Could you kindly explain this.
I have an api query string that I want to do this:

/api/web/lists/GetByTitle('MyList')/items?$top=1000 and $filter= Tab eq 'Food'

so far $top=100 works and $filter= Tab eq 'Food' also works, how do I combine them?
Firstly thanks to everyone in advance for their time and expert insights. We have several servers (all at least 2012R2) that were overprovisioned due to vendor recommendations and I need to recapture some of the free space on these drives (mostly c: and d: partitions). I worked with VMware using their VMware converter 6.2 (our ESXi is 6.5u2) and we converted a low priority test system and it went okay. I am having some issues with the application on it, but as it is a standby failover server to the main application server I cannot be sure if the issue is VMware related re. conversion or if it existed before and I will talk with the vendor as the server and application seem okay otherwise. However, I wanted to get some insights from others that have done this, since my next candidate is a SharePoint 2013 farm (2012R2 o/s) that consists of a SharePoint 2013 Farm serer and a SharePoint database server running SQL 2012. Assuming there are no issues during the conversion process itself does anyone have any insights into if this is an okay thing to do or are there any issues that VMware is not telling me, because they said it was okay. Appreciate feedback.
Hi experts.

We use Sharepoint 2016 and 2019.
Both are patched  by WSUS. Starting in December '19, the updates for these products where no longer downloaded by WSUS, nor can they be imported manually.

Can you please confirm this?
In WSUS (version does not matter), right click the updates section and search for update ID 4484215 (january 2020 update for sharepoint 2016) - does your WSUS find it?
To be detected, the office 2016 product needs to be enabled, of course (Sharepoint is part of office in WSUS)

For those of you, who have office 2019 enabled in WSUS, please try to search for update ID 4484224

I suspect that MS has screwed up something, since it stopped to detect these updates in december already.

I have a domain (domain1.local) with adfs and sharepoint. I want to have some users that are part of another forest (domain2.local) authenticate through adfs to access sharepoint.
I have a full 2-way trust between the domains. Is there another configuration needed in the adfs side to get the authentication to work? I can add new claims and pinpoint to groups in the forest domain2.local, but i get the following error:
Encountered error during federation passive request.

I am trying to automatically sync a few sharepoint document libraries using the Administrative Templates in Microsoft Intune. All of the instructions that I have found have said to go to the document library, click sync and the click the option to copy the library id. However, that option does not appear for me even though I am a global admin. I contacted Microsoft support and they could not tell me why I did not have that option. I was told how to find the library id but I think there is more than that which is copied from it based on what I have read. I would appreciate if someone could either tell me how to get the option to copy the library id to appear or how I can retrieve the information another way. I already tried just placing the library id in the administrative template but that did not work.
Dear experts

I would like to create a website with simple MS-DB connection:
The website can add rows in DB and can show rows in site, I don't need the looks, it can be black and white or just white.

I need to freely do query in the site and shows the result.
There are many options out there, but I got licensed the sharepoint, so I might create a sharepoint site that can do this.

Is this possible? And tips or idea are welcome.
My company is migrating from SharePoint 2010 and many of our users have extensive "My Links".  Since the "My Links" functionality is not in SharePoint Online, how do we provide this?  

Is there a third party web part?
Is there a way to do this with custom code/extensions/pages, etc?  

I know that in SharePoint 2010 I can go to "http://siteurl/_layouts/MyQuickLinks.aspx" to see my lists, but no easy way to download all of the data and especially for all the users.  

Ideally we find a way to export each user's links and provide them in a similar link in SharePoint Online.  
At a minimum, need to capture everyone's links and make them available in some format in SharePoint Online once we turn off SharePoint 2010.  

Any ideas/Suggestions?
Is there a way to search all sharepoint online sites for a particular file type. I am a member of every site. If not is there a way to search all sites based on file size.

Hi Experts,

I have two questions I was hoping to get clarification on.  I have a hybrid coexistence to Office 365 with adconnect and exchange online.  I've migrated all of my mailboxes to exchange online.

1.  If I remove a license to an existing remote mailbox, what is the time this goes into the recycle bin and is un-recoverable?  Is it 30 days from the creation date of the account, or mailbox creation, or a flat time period?

2.  From the Office portal, in Reports > Usage > Active Users > Office 365 > Active Users - I'm exporting a list of users for the last 90 days in trying to determine no activity.  This gives me "Last Activity Dates" for:
Exchange Last Activity Date      
OneDrive Last Activity Date      
SharePoint Last Activity Date      
Skype For Business Last Activity Date      
Yammer Last Activity Date      
Teams Last Activity Date

My purpose is to remove the licenses that are not being used.  If I removed a license for an account with no activity in the past 90 days across these modalities, would this include just those applications, or word, excel, powerpoint, etc as well?

Does anyone know the algorithm used to measure exchange activity?  Is it just sent and receive metrics?

Thank you
