Responsive SharePoint Design and Branding
As more and more people use their mobile and tablet devices to access the Internet, and as Google has started to favor mobile and tablet friendly websites in their search ranking, the need for websites to be responsive is greater than ever. Keeping this fact in mind and considering the pivotal role SharePoint plays in an organization for communication and collaboration, the need for a responsive SharePoint experience becomes obvious. To provide a responsive SharePoint experience, follow one of these two options: Device Channels Responsive Master Page Device channels is a new feature in SharePoint 2013 which allows you to design different custom master pages for different devices. Although the Microsoft SharePoint team has provided this new feature to cater for the mobile experience in SharePoint, our firsthand experience is that the level of effort required in implementing and maintaining multiple custom master pages is far from ideal. The other […]
The Importance of a Solid SharePoint Methodology
Avoid Living in a “SharePoint Shack”! “Why would I pay a SharePoint consultant to implement something that is so cheap to buy?” When implementing Microsoft SharePoint, many organizations slap together the basics found in SharePoint Foundation 2013, maybe add some categories, provide some custom views, and tweak the User Interface to make it pretty. Basically, slapping together a “SharePoint Shack”. The shack “works” but falls far short of delivering the efficiencies and processes to provide measurable increases in productivity and other benefits. Any SharePoint solution should enable you to work with data and computers the way we do in 2014. Poor adoption rates and tools not matching up with the needs of specific stakeholders are the results of building something without proper plans. Whether an internal network administrator, or a SharePoint Consultant with not much more than a Microsoft Windows administration background, is tasked, without the critical phases, to develop […]
Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Discussion Board Color Coding: How-to Guide
Recently we were required to customize the Microsoft SharePoint 2013 discussion board in such a way that discussions and comments posted after a certain date and time would be colored red so as to alert the users of new comments in a discussion.       We decided to implement this functionality through client side scripting. First we had to get our timestamp which would be compared with the timestamps of the discussions and the comments. In our case, our required timestamp was available in a document library, and through SharePoint CSOM JavaScript we were able to retrieve it from this library. Once we had the required timestamp, we developed a script that would color the discussions and comments red if their timestamp, available in the html of the page, was prior to our timestamp. The following JavaScript function colors the discussions red in the subject view of the discussion […]
SharePoint 2013 User Profile HTML Properties Lose Values on Edit – Here’s the Work-Around
The Problem In SharePoint 2013 there is a common problem that occurs when editing a user profile in situations where there is more than one HTML user profile property. In these instances, all the HTML properties except for the last one on the page will lose their values. This problem occurs in both SharePoint 2013 Online and On Premise. And it occurs on both the user profile edit pages accessible from SharePoint Central Administration and from My Sites. The Reason The problem is caused by a logical JavaScript error on the user profile edit page. A Java-Script function PopulateEditableRegion() is generated for each HTML property and is responsible for populating the HTML property with its value of the edit page. When there are more than one HTML property, this function runs only for the last HTML property on the page. function PopulateEditableRegion() { var editableRegion = document.querySelector('[InputFieldId=ProfileEditorEditAboutMe_hiddenRTEField]'); if (editableRegion) editableRegion.innerHTML […]

The Learning Organization: Retain and Grow Your Knowledge Capital with Microsoft SharePoint
For most industries and markets, it seems fair to assume that an organization’s success is largely contingent upon its knowledge capital. As an organization’s knowledge capital is composed by the knowledge and skills that reside within each and every employee, as well as the extent to which organizational knowledge is shared and utilized, the challenge for any organization is to secure, maintain and efficiently utilize the knowledge resources of its entire work force. Employing a knowledgeable and skilled work force is obviously a major priority for any organization, but ensuring that knowledge and experiences are shared throughout the organization and retained for future retrieval is what sets a true learning organization apart from its competitors. Employees Come and Go – Knowledge Should Stay While solid retention strategies indeed do help retain employees and minimize employee turnover, employees do come and go. It’s a fact. With the right applications and systems […]

SharePoint and the F.O.S.H. Life – Finance (part 2 of 4)

SharePoint and the F.O.S.H. Life – Human Resources (part 1 of 4)
F.O.S.H. Stands for Finance, Operations, Sales and Human Resources and denotes four areas in an organization where SharePoint can have an immediate impact. SharePoint is a tool that can be tailored to any business to enhance communication and automate repetitive business processes within and across departments. One real life example from the “H” in F.O.S.H. is the employee life cycle. SharePoint can be used to streamline all of the Human Resources processes while enhancing communication between HR and other departments - from the moment a position is requested until an employee leaves the company. Open Position When a manager realizes the need to open a position, s/he should consider answering the following questions: Why is this position open? What are the qualifications you are looking for? Who approves the opening? Who will be involved with candidate selection? And who will this position report to? Using SharePoint, the position requisition process […]
Improving SharePoint Application Performance
Refining your custom SharePoint solution's performance is an important and worthwhile effort. If your application's lists have a few hundred or less items, then performance may not be an issue. Such low numbers are easy to process and the servers can handle it with ease in most cases. If you have nearly 1,000 lists the application may become sluggish resulting in issues being reported by the users. To avoid a sluggish system, we recommend that you review the code for the following common issues: 1. Not making unnecessary connections to the server. 2. Keeping our data sets clean of extra columns or data we don't use. 3. Properly closing SPSite and SPWeb. 4. Loops are being handled correctly and are not redundant. 5. Wherever we query SharePoint, we're using CAML to get our items, not simply using Linq against an item collection. If the common issues stated above do not […]
