SharePoint 2013 comes with new features for plotting SharePoint list items on a Bing map. However, it isn’t completely intuitive how to accomplish this, and once you figure it out, it is still a lot of work. This post will look at using PowerShell to quickly geocode a full list of SharePoint list items with address data.
A few months ago I posted on How to Brand the SharePoint 2013 Global Navigation if you were using the Managed Metadata service to render your navigation using a term set. The menu code renders differently if you use structural versus managed navigation. This post is going to look at how to leverage the same base CSS code but modify it to work on the structural navigation.
There are lots of articles online that walk you through how to update the “SharePoint” text that appears in the upper left corner of the new SharePoint 2013 ribbon. This post is going to build on that to update the text so that it becomes a dynamic link to the current site collection root.
There are a few different ways you can get custom links into the SharePoint 2013 suite bar. This method is going to utilize jQuery to inject these links as the page loads and has the added benefit of working in SharePoint Online as well. We'll look at how to accomplish this for both on premise and online.
I recently needed to migrate all documents that hadn’t been modified in 90 days in all SharePoint webs within a SharePoint site collection to a records center. Here is a quick and easy way to accomplish this task.
If you have ever managed an Anonymous SharePoint site you know that working with Office documents is a pain. SharePoint and Office try to be smart. SharePoint passes a path to the to the Office application and then the Office application goes out to the web application to get the file. This post is going to provide you with a way to override the default link for Office documents within SharePoint so you can avoid all the log-in prompts.
I recently got a request from a client that had a lot of employee engagement around blogging and they wanted to bring that front and center on their intranet home page. We were already rolling up an executive blog to the front page using the Content Query Web Part styled with some custom XSLT. They wanted it styled to look exactly the same, but using the CQWP again was out of the question since these employee blogs were coming from the user My Sites.
This post is going to look at updating the out-of-the-box SharePoint 2013 icons. This comes in to play if you are creating a branded site.
I was on a project in the past where I was upgrading SharePoint 2007 to 2010. I really didn’t want to move all the lists and libraries for 100+ sites manually, so I turned to PowerShell. The following script takes the current site URL, and the new site URL where the lists will go. It looks to see if there are actually items in the list, and only moves lists and libraries that actually have content.
In a previous post I described how to use the Managed Navigation functionality that is new in SharePoint 2013 to create a global navigation based on a Managed Metadata term set. This post is going to provide you with all the CSS you need to fully brand a SharePoint 2013 global navigation bar.
For a recent project, I needed to migrate around 70 HTML forms in their current format and serve them up from within SharePoint. These were fairly basic forms that just submitted all their data to email. Obviously, it would have been good to convert these to InfoPath or something else, but I simply didn’t have the time for that. In this post I will explain how I used SharePoint web services and jQuery to return SharePoint list data.
This post is going to cover how to configure the global navigation bar in SharePoint 2013 using Managed Navigation, as well as provide some tips and lessons learned with rendering the global navigation using new Managed Navigation in a custom master page.
In this post I explain how to use PowerShell to create a full SharePoint (2010 or 2013) training site or testing site environment. This is the process I used to prepare for a recent SharePoint training course where I needed each of my users to have their own site collection in my environment.
I was working with PowerShell to update a managed metadata field that accepted multiple values in a publishing page library today and it was more difficult than it seemed like it should have been, so I’m posting here what actually worked for me. It turned out to be much simpler than I was trying to make it.
If you ever move a calendar from one place to another, either as part of a site move or a list move, you will be greeted by the fact that your calendar overlays no longer work because the URLs to the overlaying calendars are hardcoded into the list view. I am trying to set up an automated restore from production to development, so having lots of broken calendars isn’t great. Fortunately, all you have to do is run a few lines of PowerShell to fix this.
