Tracking and Reporting Projects using Office 365 and Project Online
Project and portfolio managers continually reach for the proverbial brass ring of managing their plans and portfolios towards an “on time” and “on budget” delivery.  These project management professionals usually contribute to a Project Management Office (PMO) responsible for a comprehensive portfolio of programs or projects owned by the complete project management staff. The PMO traditionally produces high-level reports tracking project health, costs, issues, risks, and/or milestones to share project progress and health with stakeholders. Without using the proper tools, aggregating the above data from multiple project information sources can be challenging and is usually a manual process undertaken by smart people who fully understand the process. Once the data is successfully collected and scrubbed, creating a multi-level project portfolio report in an easy to understand, “pretty” format becomes the next challenge. Using Office 365, specifically SharePoint Online and Project Online components, the manual aggregation of project data is minimized […]

3 Document Management Mistakes Every New SharePoint User Makes
If you are new to Microsoft SharePoint Online, or are considering implementing SharePoint Online, resist the following common mistakes: Creating a File Share on SharePoint Placing everything in SharePoint Thinking of SharePoint only as a document management tool File Share Pains For many, the reality of document or file management is a nested folder hierarchy on a local File Share. While initially this structure works well enough, as many have discovered it becomes a less than optimum option as folder designs grow. Typical problems inherent in this approach include: Broken access permissions No governance on folder creation nomenclature Extremely slow and unreliable search capabilities Limited document collaboration with nested folders Inconsistent or non-existent document versioning All of the above problems can contribute to poor network performance with multiple versions of documents clogging email servers and bloated network storage containing duplicate documents. Without manually inspecting similar documents, the default reaction is […]
SharePoint Sandboxed Solutions are dead – Here’s how to save existing ones
SharePoint sandboxed solutions were introduced by Microsoft for the first time in SharePoint 2010. Sandboxed solutions enabled site collection users to upload their own custom code solutions. This feature was very useful for users who did not have SharePoint Farm privileges. Under this system, users simply had to develop a sandbox solution using Visual Studio, upload it to the solution gallery of the site collection, and then their solution was ready to start using after activation. Unfortunately, Microsoft announced deprecation of code based sandboxed solutions on January 14, 2014, and last week announced that they are going to completely remove code-based sandbox solutions. As part of the removal process, you will not be able to activate any new code-based sandbox solutions. Additionally, in the coming weeks, Microsoft is going to disable all code-based sandbox solutions from SharePoint Online multi-tenant environments. Customers can look at the Office 365 Message Center and […]
