Or that's what I think the issue is. When using Excel I see this message. The file is stored on my OneDrive account.

Error message from Excel
When I try and log into 365 to satiate the nag screen with my Office 365 accouint, from which this version of Office Premium was downloaded and installed,  I get this message.

Error message when you legitimately log into 365...
I can access the OneDrive account perfectly otherwise.

Hi,

I have bought an Office 365 business (basic) package and have also attached my personal domain (hosted at godaddy.com) to it.
Can you tell me now howto:

*migrate all my mails (migration tool does not work, throws error)
*migrate contacts
*migrate calendar
*keep my outlook in sync with gmail (since users will keep using my gmail address)?
*share calendar with another person who uses a simple outlook.com address (she should be able to add/remove etc)
*create a site (Sharepoint) which I can run my (bought godaddy) domain on? of course only a public part should be able to see by public

Please advise.

Do one of you SharePoint 2010 gurus have the Powershell script to check in or undo-checkout of all item's in a picture library.  If you used SP2010 you are probably failure with when you check them in sometimes they still show checked-out.  I know there is a -force way to do it.  I just cannot remember it.  

Goal: Loop through all the documents in a specific Picture Library in a particular site and check them all in (or undo checkout)

Here is the situation:

I have over 100 users who are remote from the corporate office who access SharePoint with an active directory account. There system is not at the corporate office they only access SharePoint through a browser. Their account is created by the IT department and sent to them via email. Once the account has reached 90 days the password needs to be changed. However, there is no prompt for them to change it. I believe that SharePoint doesn't provide this feature. What can be done or other options?

I have a SharePoint 2013 site with 3 contacts fields: Name, Phone Number and Email.

If possible, I'd like to have a way of making it so a user can add multiple contacts with that information to one SharePoint record. Is this possible? Does anyone have an example or a know of a way to do this?

Thank you.

We have a sharepoint user that is used to dragging excel documents to his site and later opening them and modifying them. His files have been getting larger. He recently noticed that files over 10 MB do not open and give him the humorous error I included in the attachment.  I sure there is a simple setting in Site Settings or somewhere on the page that I can modify to increase document sizes that can be opened. Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction.

Hi,
I have some tools created using Infopath forms and SharePoint Designer workflows in SharePoint 2010 which I need to migrate to SharePoint Online. I want to know if my tools will retain the full functionality of both the forms and SharePoint Designer workflows after the migration.

Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to login Domain Account (e.g. Domain Administrator account) in SharePoint 2013 using Kerberos Authentication?

We setup SP2013 using Kerberos Authentication, but after the setup, why we can't login using any account from our AD, such as Domain Administrator.

We setup the SP2013 using Domain Admin account. Usually if we setup using NTLM, it's auto login using domain\Administrator account.

Thank you and hope to hear from any experts soon...

Internet Explorer 11 is the default web browser for our organization and it has to remain that way.  We use a Wordpress Avada theme for our intranet homepage and have links to various business sites, some of which work better in Chrome.  I know you can create desktop shortcuts to open sites directly in Chrome rather than your default browser:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" https://yourwebsitehere.com

Is there a way to do this same thing within WordPress or Sharepoint links?  I am doubting so but I thought I would ask.  I don't want to create desktop shortcuts for some sites that require Chrome and would rather just have all links on Wordpress for ease of use.  Again, I have to have IE 11 as the default browser for a variety of reasons.

How would I create a Calendar Workflow using SharePoint Designer 2010 that sends an email to a specific email distribution group  (1 of 5) depending on the department choice (1 of 5) made by the user?

Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on which one to use: NTLM or Kerberos in SharePoint 2013.

Currently, we're setting up the SP2013 and we stopped at NTLM & Kerberos part, we want to ask first experts out there which one would you prefer. Because if we select NTLM, then it would be just a normal and common setup. But if we choose Kerberos, the problem is, we have no idea and experience in working using Kerberos...

- If we choose NTLM and we set Kerberos for some site application in Central Administration, that's possible right?

- Currently, we have external users who needs to access our site, they're being asked for their UN & PW, because of the Public IP site that we let them use, (http://xx.xxx.xx.xx:1111/products), and their PW expires every 41 days, because we set it from their account. Some are local accounts and some are using domain account. And the problem is, they have no idea that their password is about to expire already, how they will know if their password is expired already, the system just rejects them to login, and they will asked us to reset their password. So we want to change that to a simple login page, that will have a connection to SQL db if possible, and will alert the users if their password is about to expire.

- We've test to change from one of our site in CA, from NTLM to Kerberos, then refresh the site, it asked for UN & PW already. If we want to have our own Custom Login Page, where can we save that page?

Hi,
I'm using Caml to query a Document Library in SharePoint Online or Office365.  I tried running these 2 CAML in U2U and SPCAML tools and both just returns 0 search result.  I am really not familiar with CAML query syntax.  I would appreciate some help here.  Oh, I also set up 2 document's properties to meeting the Where conditions.

Using today's date, the qualified date would be Leq 11/25/2017 and Geq 1/24/2018.  In 2 document's properties I set them to be 11/30/17 and 12/8/17.   But running these 2 CAML query will locate 0 result when these 2 document's property meets the condition.  Very confused.

In SharePoint online, when I ‘copy’ a folder I have to remember to go into the copied folder and ‘check in’ any files that are in the folder.  

Can this be changed, to automatically check in a copied folders contents?
Thanks in advance.

I am not familiar with sharepoint, but have to change header information.  I looked on-line for the info however the basic development page that is shown (white background with blue boxes) in instructions is not available.  the secure site comes up with the default page and I see where the "edit" is however I cannot edit the header there.    I need to go through the Site settings, but cannot find where the header (web part?) it is located in order to make the change.

I need to find the best Permissions to allow users to post to blog but not have the rights to delete their blogs in SharePoint 2013?

We have moved our email to O365, but retain our Sharepoint 2010 on-prem. So now the Alerts no longer work. I've set up a IIS SMTP relay and a O365 Connector and got that working with other apps. However, when I configure SharePoint CA to use the IIS SMTP server as the outbound SMTP server I get entries in the Mailroot/badqueue folder saying the "Client does not have permissions to send as this sender".
My understanding is that the IIS Relay uses an authenticated connection, which is the account I have put into the Sharepoint CA setting, but it is actually sending the mail as From a different account (which is the site Admin account).
I've tried just putting smtp.office365.com and our MX record address into the Sharepoint CA mail setting, but they don't work as there is no TLS. All the guides just say set up a IIS SMTP relay, but it doesn't work without setting the authenticating account with Send As permissions for every user. Surely there is a better way to do this?

Hi
Can the above be done?  We'd like to retain a on-premise files and sync them to sharepoint and ondrive.  Looknig at it we can upload to sharepoint and turn off the share i guess?  Onedrive looks to be a pain as it syncs locally on the device, can this be changed?

Securty is important and having documents in sharepoint accessiable anywhere on anything is a risk.  What can be done here to control access?

Thanks

So I have used the views workaround to create coloured categories in a SharePoint calendar, however many users require access to these calendars in outlook. I cannot find a way to sync the categories to outlook so it separates events by colour in outlook.

I use the function below to convert a SharePoint date value that is pre-populated in an html form to a regular date.

var spDate = "1987-02-28T23:11:81.333 ";

alert(convertSPDate(spDate))

function convertSPDate(d) {

	    // split apart the date and time
	    var xDate = d.split("T")[0];

	
	    // split apart the year, month, & day
	    var xDateParts = xDate.split("-");
	    var xYear = xDateParts[0];
	    var xMonth = xDateParts[1];
	    var xDay = xDateParts[2];
	var dDate = xMonth+"/"+xDay+"/"+xYear;
	   
	    return dDate;
	}

Open in new window

Unfortunately, if the field is blank, I get the SCRIPT error
Unable to get property 'split' of undefined or null reference

In jsFiddle, I get undefined/undefined/

Hi
Im interested to know what IT depts and business are doing with the above.
We went the route of Office 2016 product, not subscription for various reasons.

We have sharepoint 2012 foundation on-prem for our intranet.  No sharepoint online licences.  
Skype for business is deployed, but nobody uses it much apart from IT, with odd vidoe conference to a client.  What are people doing here with audting of conversations etc?  
No use of onedrive.

Office 2016 installed on desktops/laptops.
We allow remote access via cisco VPN.

Plan is to roll out sharepoint for a particular dept to share and work on files.  Had a quick look and see you feally need onedrive setup and sync'd in order to share personal docs with people via sharepoint, correct?  Also if wanting to edit the sharepoint/onedrive docs we need office online, correct?
Can we share unc paths or mapped server drives to onedrive and sharepoint?

Pointers? Ideas?

Please note I am talking of injecting my code into SharePoint server-side (via a package / add-in etc) as opposed to using Microsoft.SharePoint.dll or web-services to access SharePoint.

So my problem is this, I need to customise how Document Libraries work, including custom permission management. I have been browsing through Microsoft.SharePoint.dll analysing the internals of its working. Here are my observations:

SPDocumentLibrary provides the core logic of managing a document library. However, its not a WebPart in itself.
The actual web part rendering for a Document Library probably is handled by ListViewWebPart or a derived class.
There's actually a SPPictureLibrary class which makes me assume it might be possible to inherit SPDocumentLibrary class to provide custom behaviour on a Document library.
WebPartAdder.SiteWebPartGalleryProvider in some way is connecting SPDocumentLibrary to its WebPart inside Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPartAdder.AddSources method.
Now all this is client-side, none of this happens on SharePoint server itself (afaik). However I see overridable methods on SPSecurableObject that SPDocumentLibrary/SPList override, specifically:

CheckPermissions
GetUserEffectivePermissionInfo
GetUserEffectivePermissions
EffectiveBasePermissions, etc.
What I really want to do is be able to override CheckPermissions / EffectiveBasePermissions on a SPDocumentLibrary inside SharePoint server to inject my custom logic.

I would now divert my …
