    From the very beginning, one of the primary uses of SharePoint Server was the development of custom solutions based on the SharePoint platform. Whether it was simple data entry forms, workflow interactions and endpoints, or even complex business solutions, there was always a need for designing forms for data entry, editing, and viewing.

    Simply put, standard SharePoint list forms were adequate for basic needs and scenarios. But in many ways, they lacked the critical features that users needed, including the ability to efficiently change layouts and apply dynamic behaviors to control fields.

  • The impact of SharePoint - 2016 by AIIM shows that 85% of respondents use SharePoint as their intranet platform and 92% made it their major collaboration tool hosting employees' workplaces and corporate team sites. All in all, collaboration is the most popular SharePoint duty comparing to document management (80%), records management (47%) or web content management (30%). At the same time, since organizations vary by business domains and sizes, their requirements to SharePoint collaboration and a SharePoint intranet can be absolutely different.

  • Whether SharePoint blends into Office 365, or companies stay with on-premises SharePoint Servers (Microsoft quietly has said there will be two more releases of the on-premises servers), Microsoft always leaves room for improvement. So, rest assured, the third-party add-ins and plug-ins that make your SharePoint more secure, more performant or just plain more robust will be around for a while.

  • Incentive, a leading provider of a complete, socially powered enterprise collaboration platform for mid-market organizations and enterprise teams, today announced it has added seamless integration with Microsoft SharePoint, a leading enterprise web application.

All SharePoint files and folders are indexed and searchable within Incentive, eliminating the need to import or copy files.
  • Managing your SharePoint farms and keeping them in tip top shape is an everlasting fight. You constantly need to check the progress to ensure minimum compliance issues and fix migration backfires.

  • Persistent Systems, an India-based software services provider, today announced it has acquired the services business of SharePoint platform provider Akumina. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

  • SharePoint deployments tend to be complex projects. You have to get a budget for the project, plan the farm architecture, secure hardware, complete the installation, and configure the farm. After all of that, many people consider the process complete because SharePoint is “deployed.”

    There is just one thing missing: users. Despite the fact that the demos make everything look easy, and everything is available inside the firewall, outside the firewall and across the globe, users just don’t seem to be flocking to the new software. If this sounds familiar, perhaps these few tips will help speed up your user adoption. ... READ MORE

  • With the introduction of the SharePoint Framework, organizations now have an entirely new option to choose from when designing custom extensions for their cloud and on-premise collaboration solutions. Although this new model provides additional capabilities and addresses many of the feature gaps present in Azure Web Applications and SharePoint Add-Ins, it also makes the development landscape more complicated than ever before, inevitably leading to confusion around which model to use for specific business scenarios. Integrating the Framework into an existing development strategy involves several key decision points and a deeper understanding of why it was introduced and what specific problems it was created to solve.

  • SharePoint has traditionally been stigmatized as a collaborative portal used for document management and lightweight process automation by organizations around the world. Microsoft's vision for SharePoint is for it to act as the nucleus for collaborative organizations, becoming the proverbial glue that holds an organization's systems together while seamlessly surfacing information across departments. That vision, one which frankly has taken Microsoft some time to craft and communicate, sounds similar to the role of human resources in many companies: acting as the component that keeps the company together, but also one that has taken time to efficiently build.

  • First, I've got to say thanks. Since launching the Periodic Table of Office 365back in May 2017-the second-most popular of the infographics I've produced, beat out by my Intro to Office 365 Groups, interestingly-it's been viewed almost 50,000 times across LinkedIn and my blog. It's been translated into three other languages. It pops up at conferences across the world. And I've seen it in many intranets to help with internal Office 365 adoption.
