This conference marked the first time I travelled outside of Australia since 2019. As hard as we’ve all tried with virtual conferences, user groups and meetups this solidifies for me the value of in-person events. I feel I struggled to maintain existing relationships over the last 3 years in the virtual world, and even harder to build new relationships and expand my network. It was a sentiment echoed by many others I spoke to at the conference. I was delighted to be welcomed with open arms when reconnecting with old friends and in the space of a couple of days, I’ve been able to make connectio ..read more

Lately my VS2022 (17.2.x) Azure Functions projects started failing to run locally. The local console had errors related to not being able to start any of the Timer Triggers. The errors take the format The listener for function 'function name' was unable to start. This error is related to Azurite (the local Azure Functions runtime environment). The version of Azurite used by VS2022 is causing the problem. I was able to fix the issue by: Closing Visual Studio Installing the latest version of Azurite globally npm install -g azurite Open Azure Storage Explorer and delete the azure-webjobs-hosts b ..read more

Hosting a Single Page Application (SPA) from Azure Blob Storage that supports deep links

Using Azure Blob storage to host static website files has been around for many years, it’s cheap, effective and fast to setup. It gives you the ability to effectively create a directory with a unique public URL that you can upload your static files to and have them hosted (no need for any web server). Microsoft has great documentation available that steps you through how to do this: Static website hosting in Azure Storage Tutorial: Host a static website on Blob Storage This works well if your static website files are a bunch of html files (that contain links to each other to provide navigation ..read more

How to combine Graph & SharePoint permission consent into a single MSAL dialog on first use
Cameron Dwyer | Office 365, SharePoint, Outlook, OnePlace Solutions
by Cameron Dwyer
11M ago
The Problem The reason for writing this post and creating the accompanying simplified proof of concept github repo was that I was struggling to find a documented way to achieve getting the end user to consent to both Graph and SharePoint permission scopes without being presented with two consent prompts. The reason I wanted this is that I have an application that needs to make both Graph API and SharePoint REST calls before it is of any use and it is a really bad experience for the user to have to see a prompt for Graph permissions followed immediately by a second prompt for SharePoint permiss ..read more

Interview with Daniel Anderson: Using Teams & SharePoint to Run Knowledge Sharing Sessions Turning Knowledge into Assets

by Cameron Dwyer

In the days before we closed out 2021 I caught up with Daniel Anderson for a podcast where we discussed how (and why) I used Microsoft Teams and SharePoint to run regular knowledge sharing sessions within our company. With zero development you too can use your Microsoft 365 tenant to achieve the same outcome for any area of your business. Bring likeminded people together to identify topics for sharing, vote for most desirable topics, schedule sessions, record the sessions and build a library of knowledge assets that allows the value of the knowledge sharing to extend well beyond the session it ..read more

It struck me recently when collaborating on documents that we all go about creating documents differently and there’s some great time saving features Word has to make navigating and restructuring your document fast and simple that you might be missing out on. Often when I start writing a document I try to break the document down into the sections I think it will need. What are going to be my main sections, and then how will I break each of those sections up? I don’t worry too much about getting it right first go, it’s more about getting the ideas out of my head and onto the screen. With these ..read more

How I Fixed Microsoft Edge Running Slowly and Unresponsive

I’ve been running Microsoft Edge (Chromium) as my primary web browser for a long time. All of a sudden it has become painfully slow to respond. Simple webpages just get stuck trying to load (the spinning in the tab header stops spinning) It takes SECONDS for keystrokes to appear on screen Scrolling is laggy I tracked the issue down to the profile sync feature in Edge. Simply disabling profile sync INSTANTLY fixed the issue for me and gave me my sanity back, didn’t even need to restart Edge – it was like running on a different machine. Simple go into Settings Under the Profiles area click Tu ..read more
