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.

We have a shared mapped drive on Windows Server in which we need to be able to give multi-user access to some Windows Excel and Word documents. This will enable them to be collaboratively edited at the same time.

What's the simplest approach to achieve this?

Explore SharePoint 2016, the web-based, collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office to provide intranets, secure document management, and collaboration so you can develop your online and offline capabilities.

I have a staff person who is collaborating with people who are not on staff. She’s been sharing O365 SharePoint documents and folders successfully for a long time. She successfully shared a particular document with someone but suddenly the person she shared with is getting the following error:
“That didn’t work. We’re sorry, but username@gmail.com can’t be found in the sharepoint.com directory”

I  would have assumed an account for the external user in the form of: username_gmail.com#EXT#@ourdomain.com would have been created. but it didn't. I see lots of other user names in that form.

Hi,
I have all my users on OneDrive have a 300GB limit, probably due to an old limit from Microsoft.
When I adjust the setting to 1TB the setting takes but it does not take affect in the users' OneDrive.
It has been 4 hours since the change and they are still reporting 300GB.
Is there a time frame or am I missing a step?
These are E3 licenses, and we have over 500.

Thanks!

Experts,
 We have created one application by using sharepoint  and SQL server. We have 2 billion data in SQL server and we are using SQL connection string to pull data to sharepoint application page. Now near 20000 thousand users going to use this application. I would like to know some assumptions for connection string setting for Max pool and Time out.

1.what is the max connection pool
2.What is the  risk of not using any timeout or Max pool size
3. What is recommended limit for connection pool for 1000 concurrent users

We expect 1000 concurrent  users to access this application. Please advice.

I have several people sharing one computer in the production area. The computer logs in with a generic login and password for the domain so people can access it and open local program files for their CNC machines. However, the sharepoint site has different access for each user. I would like to have IE open and prompt for the user and password. I'm trying to avoid having each user logout of the computer, then login with windows login and password, then open IE and go to sharepoint. If they ctrl-right click the app, and select run as different user, it works, but I'd like to avoid having them do that. Just each time it launches it essentially does the "run as different user option". Can this be done?

Thanks

When IT Tasks are submitted to SharePoint in IE, and then modified in Google Chrome, they show up with HTML mark up. This is only an issue with Chrome. I have verified that rich text is enabled. How do I resolve this? Please see the screenshots below.

customize paging on the page footer. i have override the current paging with client side coding.
Now i have to use some logic with html/css to create dynamic paging by total and number of raw . Below screenshot is the example of paging. Any help is really appreciated.

Here is the code.
 
<script type="text/javascript">
   (function () {

SPClientTemplates.TemplateManager.RegisterTemplateOverrides(overrideCtx);
})();

 function pagingControl(ctx) 
 {
    var firstRow = ctx.ListData.FirstRow;
    var lastRow = ctx.ListData.LastRow;
    var prev = ctx.ListData.PrevHref;
    var next = ctx.ListData.NextHref;
 // Getting Total number of records
    var count = $('tr#aggWPQ2 td.ms-vb2 b').html();
    count = count.replace('Count=&nbsp;','');
	

    
  
    var html = "";
    if(firstRow = 1)

	{
        console.log("S");
        html +="<div class='Paging'>";

Greetings.

Our company is evaluating SharePoint 365 as a means for managing communication between our technical and installation teams, divided into client projects. We would like to have a separate site or sub-site for each project, however management must be able to create these in an automated fashion, without IT involvement each time a new project is needed. Of course, each new project would have to be pre-populated with elements we can configure, based on a site template, and have all security permissions assigned automatically.

Is there a means to do this in SharePoint 365? I only have very basic exposure to SharePoint, however I am told that previous versions allowed the creation of PowerShell scripts that permitted something like this to be done.

I don't need too much detail in the response - even just a pointer to an information resource on this issue would be appreciated.

I'm using Sharepoint via Office 365. I have a site I developed in HTML5 I'd like to use within Sharepoint. Is that possible?
For example I'd like to assign permissions using Sharepoint functionality, then my html5 site.
Thoughts?

I have set up an O365 group primarily for use of the shared calendar and its utility on our office SharePoint site.  I have set members of this group who are allowed to submit events to the calendar.  Nobody in the group needs to receive invitations when an event is submitted.  I know that individually each user can adjust their settings for the group, but is there a way for me as group owner (and O365 admin) to centrally set "Don't receive any group messages" for all members of the group?  To be clear, "Send all group conversations and events to members' inboxes" is unchecked.  Desired O365 settings for all members of the groupThanks!

Will SharePoint 2016 search include items not in sharepoint?  The company is all Microsoft products.
Like:
Files stored external to sharepoint on a different server?  Like:  Email, SQL data, Excel, Word, PDFs
Will it search Office 365 & On-Premise?

I've been looking around for opinions on SharePoint Search and haven't found much.  But did see where sharepoint only searches in sharepoint documents.

My goal is to map a drive of a SharePoint Shared documents site, as a mapped drive on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.
It was successful on a Windows 10 computer, however ..
Once on the SharePoint site.
In Classic Experience, highlighting the Folder in question
Library
Open with Explorer
After clicking on this it briefly shows as if it's trying to connect and then it does not pull up the site in Windows Explorer
If it does, I could then map the drive, however at this stage it does not take me further.

Hi,

I have a user who ask how to modify the "FROM" email address in SharePoint Designer 2017. User is doing like a "Client feedback" from workflow... I'm not familiar with SharePoint Designer but I'm sure this is just a setting somewhere that we can change easily. Is someone can guide me?

Thanks

I'm trying reduce  the logfile on a SharePoint Database that I think it unnecessarily large.
It's the sp_WebAnalyticsStaging DB, I'm not sure what this does even.

The DB size is 129MB and the logfile is 16GB!
It's the initial size of the logfile that looks odd, it' set to 15898 MB, not sure why.

Can I just reduce the initial size of this logfile?

It's SP 2010,

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

has anyone every attempted to store an access application in a document management system such as sharepoint? My initial reaction was 'that would never work', but our IT are trying to migrate data from  traditional file servers to sharepoint, but I wanted some insight into will an access application ever work in a system like sharepoint, or access databases accessed by numerous staff work in general? I am hoping the answer is no so I can suggest it isnt worth even investigating.

I just have a question about RegisterSod.  I am seeing this in the pages code in the head and was wondering how it works in sharepoint 2013.  The example is below:

<script type="text/javascript">RegisterSod("initstrings.js", "\u002f_layouts\u002f15\u002f1033\u002finitstrings.js?rev=S11vfGURQYVuACMEY0tLTg\u00253D\u00253D");</script>

Running Visual Studio 2015 on a SharePoint 2016 dev server.  I want to create an event receiver.  I create a SharePoint 2016 empty project (Farm) and then click add new item.  I select event receiver and the drop down to select the event source does not show any of my lists or libraries.

I have run as on the Visual Studio 2015 IDE as farm admin and still not luck.

Is this a broken VS or is there a rights issue or...?

Please advise.

Hi Guys,
I got sharepoint in office365.
got multiple folders in a site.
users got one drive client and everything syncs to it.
all folders works fine. except one folder. whenever i try to open a file from that folder it keeps on saying. the "file is open in another program" or the "directory name is invalid". but it works fine when i open in webbrowser. and its the same problem for all users. so its not a local computer issue.

I also tried syncing to a new computer and still same issue with that particular folder.
things i have tried.
1.synched to new computer- same issue
2 tried resynching. reinstalled one drive. re synched same issue
3. tried renaming the folder in the cloud console and tried resynching- same issue.

not sure what else to do. any ideas would be great.
please have a look for the error messages.

This problem used to happen once or twice a year, but it's happening with higher frequency now, and I'm at a loss how to troubleshoot it - because the normal troubleshooting method I'd use is the temporary and unintended "fix" itself.

I have an SSRS 2012 report deployed in SharePoint (2013) mode on a Windows Server 2012. The report is configured to use a dynamic data source, such that it can be run against 1 of 5 similar sites (databases). When the problem arises, whether I run the report from IE or within SSDT itself, I get this red-herring message:

The error message
Here are some important outcomes from my troubleshooting so far:
  • My normal troubleshooting strategy is to gather the list of inputs the SP behind the report would use, and run the SP manually from SSMS. As soon as I run this query, the problem disappears
  • The date range on the report makes no difference. Even if the report ran last week on last week's data, setting the date range to last week when the problem arises this week still results in this message
  • The problem typically happens on 1 or 2 sites at any given time, but not all sites. The "fix" is to connect to each site's DB and run the query once in SSMS
  • I use the term "red-herring" because if it were a data issue, the problem wouldn't disappear simply by running the query in SSMS. One would expect to find a bad piece of data that would require correction
