When you work with SharePoint, you always end up looking for a solution to something. A workaround, some tips or how to fix an issue. It’s a daily problem. And using Evernote allows me to build a valuable library of all that great knowledge from SharePoint experts around the world.

Before using Evernote, if I was looking for a solution with SharePoint, I would either check my bookmarks or go to Google.     »» Continue reading

3 key links to read: Intranets, SharePoint, design and more

Intranet Component Listing

Now, this is very useful from Richard Harbridge. A fine long list of all the various components that you can put on an intranet. Great for giving you some ideas.

Readers Don’t Classify their Experience

Again, great value for anyone managing a site or intranet. How do people classify things? And how this the influences the structure, search and information architecture of a site. Valuable. And I love that domain name. Classic.

OK now, SharePoint 2013 is out in the wild but of course not many actually real companies with an existing platform are going to jump in right away. And that makes perfect sense of course. Well, does it suck?

I managed to play with the new version a little while ago and here’s my pretty brief view of it.

Now, there are far more experienced SharePoint experts out there who have given the platform a good going over and have peeked in some detail under the hood. This is my initial view of it as an end user, not a developer or techie guru.     »» Continue reading

A review of Office 365 – mostly good. And Sharepoint…

UK IT site, The Register, has a review of Office 365 from Microsoft. But it is this quote which is a classic:

Speaking of Sharepoint, that is also part of Office 365. Sharepoint Online is perhaps the most natural fit for a subscription cloud app that Microsoft has in its arsenal.

Sharepoint in the enterprise is a finicky, miserable-to-administer thing requiring a fair amount of expertise. Sharepoint in Office 365 has its own App Store.
