Steps to create a Remote event receiver using visual studio 2015 for SharePoint Online and deploy into Microsoft Azure


We can develop remote event receiver in SharePoint online using visual studio 2015. In SharePoint online Office 365 environments we can not run custom code in the SharePoint server. But we can run code in a remote server. Remote event receivers can be developed using provder hosted add-in. We can use remote event receivers to handle events in the SharePoint add-in model. We can use AppInstalled and AppUninstalling events to set up or remove SharePoint objects and other event receivers your add-in needs.

PowerApps, Flow and Managed Metadata fields–part 1

One (current) issue affecting both PowerApps and Flow is that neither support Managed Metadata Columns properly. I have a method to get around this issue, but it will take more than one post to explain. Lately I have refrained from writing epic multi-part posts because things change quickly.

Running SharePoint Server on-premises on Azure’s cloud?

The proposition in the headline almost seems like an oxymoron, but it is a real option. Today many companies are in a race to the cloud in order to get out of the data-center business. And while Office 365 is a great long-term solution, the investment many companies have already made in SharePoint is too great to just “start over” in Office 365. The truth is while software-as-a-service (SaaS) is the best solution to future-proof things, it does take an investment to get there.
