Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

Is there a way to hide the "All Site Content" functionality that appears beneath the Recycle Bin? General Users with Contribute Rights are able to access this and I would like to make that function not available or no longer appear. I am aware of the code methods but I am working in an environment that prefers to avoid code solutions.

Is there a  way to accomplish this with SharePoint Designer or the Administrative interfaces within SharePoint itself?

Currently running onPrem SharePoint 2016 Exchange 2016.
Attempting to configure eDiscovery on this setup however running into issues.

SharePoint 2016 Trusted Security Token Issuer for Exchange configured to https://*EXCHANGESITE*/autodiscover/metadata/json/1

Exchange Partner Application configured to https://eDiscovery.FQDN/_layouts/15/metadata/json/1

Authentication is currently running via ADFS SAML Claims using a Custom People Picker

Search Result source set to https://EXCHANGESITE/EWS/Exchange.asmx

When trying to select a mailbox to add to a case Error: The connection to the search service application failed.

When looking at the SharePoint logs: "Failed to connect to search serviceSystem.ServiceModel.FaultException....." "Exception of Type Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Discovery.Internal.ExchangeConnectionException"

When looking at the IIS Logs on Exchange : "The user specified by the user-context in the token does not exist."

I'm at a loss at the moment. Exchange Auth Cert (confirmed by get-AuthCert on exchange) is on the SharePoint Servers.
SharePoint search works.
Permission controls via the custom people picker works.

Anyone have any suggestions?

If there is any need for clarification or additional information I am completely available to respond to comments. I am still having the issue.

Thanks

I have put together a SharePoint List using SP 2010

One of the fields is creation date - which is in the format dd/mm/yyyy

I need a calculation to calculate financial year using the creation date

The financial year runs from the 1st May to 30th April the following year

Some example below and the output I would expect

Creation Date    Financial Year
26/04/2017        2016-2017
26/05/2017        2017-2018
30/04/2018        2017-2018

Any help would be appreciated

Hi all,
we need to access data in a Sharepoint database from outside an app, and the app developers gave me instructions on how to access those data via WebDAV. But they also told me that some 'folders' within the data structure are too big and WebDAV (or Windows) might throw an error due to timeouts. And here we go - some folders are fully accessable because of less data content, but our main folder is not. We try to access the file structure either by explorer or by command line. Both fail on large folders.
But I hope that there's a way to adjust some timeout values - in SQL server (Sharepoint) or in OS. Any ideas ?

TIA
Michael

I would like to redirect InfoPath to a menu page on my SharePoint Site.  At the moment, when it closes it goes to the list which can be okay, but not in my case.

I notice the the URL has a List=some string of values and then the ID=some number for the list item if it's an edit,  and some other parameter that looks sort of like a link to where to go after the form closes.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

We use sharepoint 2013 and Exchange 2013.  We have built a system status site to notify the entire org of the current status of critical IT systems.

We need this system status site to send an email to a dynamic distribution list and we can't make it work.

It seems simple...I can create a DDL and send emails to it, but I can't make sharepoint do it.

Am I missing something?  I've even gone so far as to write transport rules in Exchange so that when the system status site sends an email to a person, forward that to the DDL and that's not working.

Is this doable?

Thanks

I need to track the number of days between a specified date and todays date. In order to do so I need to:

- set up a site workflow which can be scheduled to run on a daily basis
- update the field "todays date" with the current date every 24 hours
- calculate the difference between the specified date and "todays date"
- set a condition if the difference beween the specified data and "todays date" is equal to zero

Can anyone help me with setting up this workflow?

Thanks

Hi,

Is there a simple way to expose the Accounts from our CRM Online on our SharePoint Online? I would like to be able to add custom columns on Libraries where I can select the Account from a drop-down list.

I would expect this to be pretty simple and straightforward but Microsoft does surprise us negatively quite regularly.

Hi All,

We're a care company with a standard file server with X amount of mapped drives per department (and a shared 'Z' drive).

We are wanting to migrate over to O365 and I've had conflicting advice on weather to move to Onedrive for Business or Sharepoint.

My first question would be which one would you guys recommend ? And are there any reasonably priced tools to assist.

The ultimate goal as our users are not technically minded would be the ability to re-map the network drives to the new Sharepoint / Onedrive for each of the 'drives' so the end users doesn't really notice too much difference.

I know there are companies out there who charge thousands to manage the process but having done the migration thus far from Exchange / AD to O365 I'd like to tackle this myself.

Many thanks,
Shaun Okeefe

Our internal sharepoint site prompts all users for a username and password when clicking on a link to open a publisher document. Any other document types open fine so it is not a trusted site issue nor is it saved passwords or anything like that.
This affects both Windows 7 and Windows 10 users using IE11. SharePoint 2013 Enterprise on premise.

Hi All,
I am working in SharePoint 2013 server. I have an .xlsm file that is filled out as a work request and submitted to the SharePoint site. The Excel file is then reviewed and eventually approved through the Item Approval process. I am looking for a way to use a workflow that once the file is approved that the file is removed from the SharePoint site and archived in my network folder //borg/usershar/MCL/datasources/XH-707/
The excel files are up to 6 MB in size so I do not want to consume the SharePoint site capacity and store offline from that server.
The second part to my question, is there a way to generate a pdf automatically through a workflow once the Excel file is Approved? If this is possible, I could maintain the pdf and delete the excel file after approval. Thanks for any help.

I have a SharePoint 2016 Site Collection.  In this collection I created a custom content type with Item as the parent.  To that custom type I added a couple of choice columns.

Now I go to a list and list/settings/advanced and turn on Managed Data. After that I go into the list settings again and add this content type.  So, now I see other columns which I can then use on the list.  Ok, that seems to work.

But,  when I launch InfoPath to create a form to Create/Edit list items for this list, none of the custom content type columns show up.

Any advise on this would be appreciated.

I have been trying to configure search in on-premise SharePoint 2016 site. I need to add a Query (KQL) to be able to search specific document library within specific site. So far I had no luck with Path: command. Below is what I am using which is as close as it gets:
{SearchBoxQuery}  (contentclass:STS_List_DocumentLibrary)  ListUrl:{url to document library}
This KQL gets me the search results for the entire site not specific document library.
Any suggestions?

Hi,


we have one site collection which is having 2 document library, its contents 450 GB database size. Actual database size is 100 GB but due to version history the overall Site Collection Database size reached to 450 GB, I am thinking to shift one document library to another site collection and remove the same from existing site collection.

We have 2 document library with millions of folder and sub folder. I will create two Separate site Collection with this two library (One Document Library in one site collection and another document library in another Site collection)

I want site permission , Library permission , Folder and item level permission as it is of that new Sites - Library with version history and check in check out,

I will create new Web application in same farm

I am going to use Import and export document library approach - May I able to retain Permission of site , Library , Folder with version history and check in check out status .

Any other points which I need to take care while moving , I require user to access site as it is, I will create just link of new document library on main site .

We have SharePoint 2010 Standard and SQL standards 2012 .  Any other approach is also welcome.
