Hello, I have 15 Excel workbooks (project plans) that I am trying to consolidate into a single view. They all have a standard 'set' of columns but then have additional columns for their specific project needs. I'd like to create a SharePoint list that takes only the standard set and stacks all 15 files on top of each other. Is there a way to do this work? All of the articles that I have seen have done only one Excel.
If not, is it possible to combine the SharePoint lists into a single list on the SharePoint side (e.g. create 15 different, synced lists and then stack them)?
I use the Code Snippet functionality in SharePoint Designer quite a bit. For those of you not familiar with this feature, it's the ability to "SAVE" lines of common code in the program so you don't have to retype them over and over again.
I love the feature as it's something I'm used to in Visual Studio, but I don't see a way to edit stored snippets. Does anyone know how to edit/delete old snippets?
We're redoing some forms, and with that, we're redoing the sites that they are on. The current form and site are still in production. A user who has past experience designing forms, opened it in Infopath and saved it to their desktop. She has been making changes without publishing it. She's now ready to test it, but I'm having a helluva time getting it published to the new site.
I've unpacked it and I'm editing the manifest.xsf in Sublime Text. I've read many articles on doing this, but I cannot get it to publish.
I've been working heavily off of this article, but I've also been referencing many others along with it.
I've updated xsf3:solutionMode mode=,xsf2:list path=,andruntimeCompatibilityURL= to reflect the new site.
I did not make any changes to siteURL, sharePointListID orrelativeListURL because they only appeared under the DataConnections and those will remain the same as it's using the exact same ones.
Doing it this way, I get a SOAP error saying that a list doesn't exist, but does not give me any more info than that.
The SOAP response indicates that an error occurred on the server: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. <detail><errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/"> List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. </errorstring><errorcode xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">0x82000006</errorcode></detail>
I've also tried removing all DataConnections, as well as changing all of the URL's, with no luck.
Is there not an easier way for this, and if not, can someone give me some pointers on getting this done?
I have a customer with a huge SharePoint 2013 farm: 30 content databases (all below 200GB), each one with 1100 site collections and a total of 6TB of data that we want to patch (install latest Cumulative Updates).
What is your recommended approach to install cumulative updates on a farm with this large amount of site collections and site collections?
I noticed that the Upgrade-SPContentDatabase has some parameters like -NoB2BSiteUpgrade which specifies to not upgrade all child objects in the database when performing a build-to-build upgrade. Can we for example run the Upgrade-SPContentDatabase command twice? The first time with the -NoB2BSiteUpgrade parameter and after it succeeds, run for each database the command without this parameter so that all child objects in the database are upgrade?
My organization is migrating to 2016 before years end, and I just got a new development Farm up and running to begin the migration process. It's 6 servers (+2 SQL) running MinRole (2 App, 2 WFE, 2 DCache). One of the App servers is designated with Search. Should both app servers be that way for proper High Availability reasons, or does it not matter? Search is rarely used in our environment. People just have their bookmarks and work in the respective sites.
In our 2013 environment, the User Profile Service I found a little confusing, and it's association with MySites. My organization obviously uses AD, but we do have 2 different domains as everything is split down the middle. So I need to have SharePoint accessible by both domains, although the other one barely requires it, just some brief overlap of users who straddle both sides of the organization.
Anyway, in 2013 it is using FIM, and I know MIM is the new standard. I do not require bi-directional updating, and we do not want people to have MySite access (we have a million collaboration tools, there's no need for people to have personal sites).
So if I understand correctly, I should be loading MIM, and using that to connect to both domains to import users. I also have to create a MySites application to facilitate this as well? I would just turn off the feature enabling users to create their own?
The other thing is, the farm immediately knew our Active Directory, I at no point have configured anything to do with it, but it still queries it like normal already. Where in the process did this happen? Is it just because the servers were already apart of it during their creation?
Hi! I'm kinda new to sharepoint (and Reddit as well!), and was wondering if someone could help me with this:
In our Sharepoint environment, we have lots of instruction documents, that have been named i.e. like this: "Using_the_HR_management_service_2017.PDF" Now of course, these documents need to be updated, whenever there's a change in the instructions or the actual service. And of course, the new, updated version has it's own "_2019" suffix at the end, even if the rest of the document name is the same. So if I simply upload the new 2019-version and delete the old 2017-version, it will result in a lot of broken links across our Sharepoint (since there are several links from different sites referring to that document), right?
So the questions are:
a) Is there a way to check how many links there are to the old document and from which sites, in order to fix them after I upload the new document?
b) Could Document ID help me with this? (it is not activated atm, but as a possible solution in the future? (I know document linking can be helpful when documents are moved from library to another, but could it be of help in this instance?
c) Any other solution, which would not result in broken links? (if we presume the "2019" has to be in the document name) ?
We've been using Dropbox in our company for a few years, but it was recently decided to use OneDrive for Business and SharePoint online instead of it. The new features of both those service (or of that unified service, I guess it depends how you see it) are good and our initial tests have given some good results.
However, it seems like getting OneDrive for Business and SharePoint online automatically deployed on every (Windows 10 Pro) PC of the company will be pretty painful, as it seems that it isn't possible to link the OneDrive (old school) sync with the SharePoint online sync (new school) without manually entering credentials, then going to our SharePoint company website and clicking the sync button.
I did my research and didn't find a way to script it (we use Azure AD and Intune as our directory/MDM – nothing on premise). Are there solutions, workarounds or something I missed?
Hey all - I have a SharePoint Online for my nonprofit working as an intranet site that is utilizing the modern pages. I am tech savvy enough to do small tweaks on the site but I am not a SharePoint professional by any means.
I have a News/Announcements module (webpart?). Currently, when I add a new News Post (which I guess makes it's own page) there are no email notifications to the users. I would like to have email notifications so every time I add a new News Post it sends out automatic email notifications to everyone.
I would also like to have email notifications for any comments/replies in the News Posts.
We are not using MIM with out SharePoint 2016 farm. We have exported the user photos from the 2010 MySites host already formatted into thumbnails and have imported them into the SharePoint 2016 MySite host photo store. We ran the Update-SPProfilePhotoStore command pointing it to the 2016 MYSite Host, but our user profiles are still not showing photos 12 hours later.
I know this is SharePoint, so I didn’t expect it to be that easy, but any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
