I am new to SharePoint, having just taken a week-long class.  I am trying to figure out some things for my firm.  We use FileSite as our DMS, so we would like to keep files within the DMS.  I figured out how to put a FileSite NRL link in a SharePoint documents library.  

My question is about versioning.  I would like to use versioning with approvals, but is that possible when using links instead of documents?  If not, is there any sort of workaround, maybe a column for version number and another column for status, including a list such as; draft, interim draft, final draft, approved?

Does anyone know how to make an access form auto populate on the form the name of who is logged into office 365? My goal is to have access forms on my Sharepoint website for my staff to fill out but whenever they fill out a form, it needs to pull their login in name for verification on who filled out the form.

Greetings experts,

I am trying to locate the AppData for Microsoft Sway and Microsoft Sharepoint. I am able to pinpoint the app data of my other Microsoft Products in my C;\Users such as Word and Excel.

What I am trying to do is link a shortcut to open these applications.

Any help is much appreciated! :)

I have a problem with sharepoint online in combination with metadata and Office. We have created a Sharepoint Team site. Inside the document library we have created a document set with a bunch of shared properties. We have also activated the document ID feature, so each document is created with a uniqe, visible ID. This works fine - all documents have IDs in sharepoint.
Now we want to use this properties in Office (e.g. Word) inside the document footer.
But when I open the document properties page in Word, no additional properties are shown.  We also cannot use them inside the document.
No matter which office version we use.

Is this a limitation of document sets?
Does anybody have an idea?

Thanks in advance!

cheers, Martin

If this is a recurrence then I need the recurrence events as well. I tried connecting using SharePoint List but it is not giving the recurrence data.

Please help.

Need to enable Office 365 E2 users with MS Teams and Sharepoint Online for all users in the organization.  Is ther eway to do this from the GUI or is PS the only way.
We have a custom online SharePoint for O365 created by another company - they used Visual Studio. How does it look like if we will have to hand over maintenance to another person or company? I mean do we have access to all the code created by them or is it compiled somehow and they should give us a source code?

How can I use a completely have sharePoint point to another site on the same account


We have a Send Connector that sends all email for a specific domain to a sharepoint smtp server. This configuration has been in place for some time now but it only has one HUB Server configured as the Source Server. We would like to replace this server and add more for redundancy.

Steps taken so far:
Sharepoint Team confirmed they added the new HUB server IPs to the allow list
Tested telnet from HUB servers. works ok
Added the new servers to the Source Server tab and removed the old one.

Issue is we noticed emails were starting to queue up on all HUB servers for this Send Connector in this site with the below error message. Some of the servers it queued on were not added to the source server tab for the connector.

451 4.4.0 Primary target IP address responded with: “451 5.7.3 Cannot achieve Exchange Server authentication.” Attempted failover to alternate host , but that did not succeed. Either there are no alternative hosts, or delivery failed to all alternative hosts.
