Missing Web Parts with custom script disabled…

AdminThe Custom Script setting (Default disabled)

As I have posted about before, during the end of 2014, beginning of 2015, a new security feature in SharePoint Online has been rolled out. The feature in itself is a great security feature if that is what you want.

Missing example:

WebpartsMissing

Expected webparts:

WebpartsThere

Note: changes to this setting might take up to 24 hours to take effect.

In my previous post on this setting, I listed the missing features, however this is not all that will go missing. In addition, quite a few webparts will be gone from your SharePoint Online environment. This may or may not be expected by you and your users/editors/developers…
Below is the list of webparts that you will not find with the Custom script setting off/disabled.

Office 365 News – Sway preview now available in your First Release tenant

Try out Sway in your First Release tenant now

Preview

Ok, if you want to try out Sway within your organization, here it is. It popped up on the App Launcher just the other day.

AppLauncher

(You can use this URL: https://sway.com/?o365=true and then sign in with your organizational account)

It is a preview, not fully operational yet but as many of you have seen, it works remarkably well!
Microsoft uses Sway in a lot of their presentations and they look great 🙂
I can give you a great example, at Ignite, Mark Kashman held a session the last day where he recapped all SharePoint content during the Conference in a Sway: http://aka.ms/sharepointUNPLUGGED

Try it out, remember that there are a few limitations though.
– I have found the ‘Import from PowerPoint’ to be really bad, it imports all objects one by one as a ‘slide’. Try it out and see for yourselves.
– Also, every time you press ‘Get started’ a new Sway is created, even you you do nothing more it will show up in the list.

In Sway preview you can set the permissions to be:
– Public
– People with the link
– My organization (Everyone)
– Just me
For now, this is fine, but eventually we will want to be able to add Groups of users or a select few.

You can add content easily be searching for it and just drag and drop it to the Sway Surface.

If you don’t like the design and don’t feel like spending time on making it just right, use the ‘Remix’ button.

Remix
Remix will apply a new design to the entire Sway, Headers, Colors, Formatting and all.

Office 365 News – Move and Copy files and folders in OneDrive for Business

April 16, 2015 1 comment

 Office365logo       SP2013logo       SharedLove

Now, finally, we can move and copy files within our OneDrive for Business web GUI

Dokument

Some random document…

Some time, early 2015, Microsoft introduced the ability to move/copy files in OneDrive for Business. This has been one of the major obstacles for using OneDrive for Business as a E1 user without the Office applications installed locally. Or rather, as a Online only user no matter what license. As a long time SHarePoint user and technician, this is a long awaited feature in SHarePoint as well, so now I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this ‘simple’ little feature to appear there as well. (I do not for one second think that this has been easy to implement at all) In addition, the function is quick!

Want to see how it looks and works?

The following table lists the tested and verified behaviour of the Copy/Move functionality in OneDrive for Business:

Action Behavior Notes
Move File(s) Moves the selected file(s) to the designated target container Retains metadata Retains sharing Does not overwrite if filename exists, reports back error
Move Folder(s) Moves the selected folder(s) to the designated target container Recreates a new copy of the folder Retains sharing Does not overwrite if filename exists, reports back error
Copy File(s) Copies the selected file(s) to the designated target container Recreates a new copy of the file(s) with new metadata Does not retain sharing Does not overwrite if filename exists, reports back error
Copy Folder(s) Copies the selected folder(s) to the designated target container Recreates a new copy of the folder with new metadata Does not retain sharing Does not overwrite if filename exists, reports back error
Copy or Move in SharePoint N/A – ‘Send to’ a predetermined location is the closest we get in SharePoint Server or SharePoint Online N/A

How it looks in reality:

Move or Copy a single file

SingleFileMove1

Move or Copy multiple files/folders

MultipleFilesMove1

Select the target, check the ‘Copy’ box if you want to Copy and not Move

MultiMoveDialog

After copying/Moving, you will get a Little reciept in the top right corner

Shared15

Ok

or

SharedCopy

If one or many of the files allready exist at the target, they are not overwritten, not even with a new name or new version. You will instead get a note on this and the result

Error

Now, we all hope for the same in SharePoint! Until it comes, we all to this ‘simple’ feature say: FINALLY!

Office 365 guide series – Function to resolve a users OneDrive for Business URL

February 24, 2015 Leave a comment

 Office365logo       SP2013logo

Hi SharePoint Online PowerShellers!

This time I will give you a Quick but great function to use if you are working with OneDrive for Business:

Function to resolve a users OneDrive for Business URL

Aggklockax

Simple solution, great to have, unbelievably efficient…

Ok, this is perhaps my shortest post ever…I’ll just explain real Quick.
OneDrive for Business gets it URL from the tenantname and the users UserPrincipalName. Creating this every time can be troublesome…
This is what I use, a function I created last summer when I was tired of doing them one at the time…

It works even with users that have a different domain in the UPN than what is the tenant name.
This is it:

Function GetODfBURL($UserPrincipalName, $TenantName)
# Creates a correct ODfB URL from email and TenantName/OrgName, returns URL as a String
{
    # ConStructing OneDrive personal URL from the UPN/Email address
    $StrUser = $UserPrincipalName
    $pos= $StrUser.IndexOf("@")
    $len = $StrUser.Length -1
    $StrUser = $StrUser.SubString(0, $pos)
    $StrUser = $StrUser -replace "\.", "_"
    $Orgpos = $pos + 1
    $Orglen = $len - $pos
    $StrOrg = $UserPrincipalName.SubString($Orgpos, $Orglen)
    $StrOrgNamePos = $StrOrg.IndexOf(".")
    $StrOrgName = $StrOrg.SubString(0, $StrOrgNamePos)
    $StrOrgSuffixPos = $StrOrgNamePos +1
    $StrOrgNameLen = $StrOrg.Length - $StrOrgSuffixPos
    $StrOrgSuffix = $StrOrg.SubString($StrOrgSuffixPos, $StrOrgNameLen)
    $StrOrg = $StrOrg -replace "\.", "_"
    $PersonalOrgURL = "https://" + $TenantName + "-my.sharepoint.com/personal/"
    $SiteUrl= $PersonalOrgURL + $StrUser
    $SiteUrl= $SiteUrl+ "_" + $StrOrg
    return $SiteUrl
}
$ODfBURL = GetODfBURL "thomas.balkestahl@blksthl.se" "blksthl"

This will give the URL: https://blksthl-my.sharepoint.com/personal/thomas_balkestahl_blksthl_se

Thats it. Use it or not 🙂
