No Meeting Feb 14 – Happy Valentine’s Day

Hey SFSPUGers,

Since the next regularly-scheduled meeting falls on Valentine’s day — and some of us don’t want to end up single — we’ll plan to skip February and aim to have our next meeting on Thursday, March 14.

But if you’re really hoping for some SharePoint goodness that evening, grab your favorite internet device, curl up with your favorite beverage, and check out these recorded sessions from MS Ignite 2018.

See you in March! 💘

Expectation (Ignite) -vs- Reality (Life as a SharePoint site owner)

Microsoft made lots of exciting announcements at Ignite in September, including many features that would be ready by the “end of the year.” Now that it’s 2019 what’s actually available* and how useful is it? We’ll be looking at Modern SPO features and webparts from a site owner’s perspective. Once the PowerShell command Enable-CommSite is publicly released, do you think you’re ready to go fully Modern? Feel free to bring your own experiences and questions.

* YMMV depending on the rollout schedule and phase of the moon. We have no special insights on the Gov/Edu rollout schedule.
