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.

Speaker: Caitlin Young, R3 Interworks

The Modern SharePoint Experience Part II

Last month’s presentation focused a lot on the SharePoint “Modern” Expereince, and we had a lot of great audience participation and questions!

This month we’d like to continue the conversation with some follow-up answers to some of last month’s unanswered questions, and any new questions you may have.

Some topics for discussion:

  1. SharePoint PnP Framework
  2. JSON list column formatting
  3. Ideas for hiding the annoying feedback button
  4. SharePoint access by Office 365 global admins

We will also discuss the Office 365 and SharePoint Online roadmap from Microsoft and take topics you’d like any of the group members who are going to the SharePoint Conference later that month to keep an eye out for, so we can discuss them at the June meeting.

Harjit Randhawa, Software Technical Consultant at Essention

Harjit will be our guest speaker again this week, continuing the conversation from our last meeting.

Harjit has been on a wide variety of teams with Essention, from supporting city organizations to private financial institutions. With his deep understanding of business needs, Harajit is able to customize Office365 tools to fix holes in Microsoft’s out of the box functionalities, keeping ahead of Microsoft’s planned future enhancements so we can share this crucial info with the group.

Topic: Integrating SharePoint with Applications

SharePoint is a robust tool in its own right but the benefit and power of SharePoint when combined with other applications truly makes powerful business solutions.

Then we’ll open it up for discussions and break out groups to discuss various topics including: advanced configuration, development, change management, infrastructure, documentation, and anything else that might interest you.

No January Meeting

Hi SFSPUG people!

Microsoft is moving office locations currently, and they are not yet ready to host us in January so there is no January meeting. We’re planning to meet again on Thursday, February 12th to discuss getting the most out of SharePoint and OneNote. Hope to see you there!
