This is just a Quick overview of the new Service Application – Work Management Service Application in SharePoint 2013.

Overview
  • The Work Management Service Application provides functionality to aggregate tasks to a central location.
  • Users get the possibility to view and track their to-dos and tasks.
  • Tasks can be cached to a users personal site.
  • Tasks can be aggregated from Exchange, Project Server and SharePoint.
  • Based on ‘Provider model’ so that other systems can be integrated in the future.

Thats it, more info will become available over time, I will hopefully have time to dive deeper into it then.

Enjoy!

PowerShell for SharePoint Online

August 9, 2012 17 comments

SharePoint Online

In Conjunction with the release of the SharePoint 2013 preview and Office 15 and all the great releases this summer, Microsoft also saw fit to release some info on the support for PowerShell in SharePoint in Office 365 more commonly known simply as SharePoint online.

Have a look at this link:

Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Online
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fp161362(v=office.15)

What I regard as a bit cryptic regarding this release is this:
Applies to: SharePoint Online Preview

Update 20120920: Sign up for the preview here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=257731
I have not spent time figuring out how to get access to a Preview, I’ll rather just read up on the CMD’lets and wait for the support to become general availability.

The list of CMD’lets is limited to just a few, but as a starter, it is a huge leap forward compared to no support, which was what we had before.
The entire list looks like this:

SharePoint Online cmdlets in verb order 

                Cmdlet name                 Description
Add-SPOUser Adds an existing Office 365 user or an Office 365 security group to a SharePoint group.
Connect-SPOService Connects a SharePoint Online global administrator to a SharePoint Online connection (the SharePoint Online Administration Center). This cmdlet must be run before any other SharePoint Online cmdlets can run.
Disconnect-SPOService Disconnects from a SharePoint Online service.
Get-SPOAppErrors Returns application errors.
Get-SPOAppInfo Returns all installed applications.
Get-SPODeletedSite Returns all deleted site collections that are in the Recycle Bin.
Get-SPOSite Returns one or more site collections.
Get-SPOSiteGroup Returns all the groups on the specified site collection.
Get-SPOTenantLogEntry Retrieves SharePoint Online company logs.
Get-SPOTenantLogLastAvailableTimeInUtc Returns the time when the SharePoint Online organization logs are collected.
Get-SPOUser Returns the SharePoint Online user or security group accounts that match given search criteria.
Get-SPOWebTemplate Shows all site templates that match the given identity.
New-SPOSite Creates a new SharePoint Online site collection for the current company.
New-SPOSiteGroup Creates a new group in a SharePoint Online site collection.
Remove-SPODeletedSite Removes a SharePoint Online deleted site collection from the Recycle Bin.
Remove-SPOSite Sends a SharePoint Online site collection to the SharePoint Online Recycle Bin.
Remove-SPOSiteGroup Removes a SharePoint Online group from a site collection.
Remove-SPOUser Removes a user or a security group from a site collection or a group.
Repair-SPOSite Checks and repairs the specified site collection and its contents.
Request-SPOUpgradeEvaluationSite Requests to create a copy of an existing site collection for the purposes of validating the effects of upgrade without affecting the original site.
Restore-SPODeletedSite Restores a SharePoint Online deleted site collection from the Recycle Bin.
Set-SPOSite Sets or updates the values of one or more properties for a site collection.
Set-SPOSiteGroup Updates the SharePoint Online owner and permission level on a group inside a site collection.
Set-SPOTenant Sets properties on the SharePoint Online organization.
