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

April 16, 2015 1 comment

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 – Prevent unwanted use of SharePoint Designer

SPD_Warning

SharePoint Designer, bad in the wrong hands

Prevent unwanted use of SharePoint Designer (SPD)

Hi SharePoint Online administrators!

You have all Heard the nickname SharePoint Destroyer right? I’m not a SharePoint Designer hater at all, quite the opposite actually. Some things can simply just be done from SPD and no Place else. Like for example saving a SharePoint online Site Collection from a failed branding attempt…or a miscoded masterpage…
No, SPD is a really good tool for the ones who know how to use it and with the proper skills and the proper permissions it can be a real help in many scenarios, onprem or in the cloud.

However, what I want to Point out here in this post, is that not everyone has the skills needed, and way to many users have too high permissions for their own good.
A powerfull tool like SPD in the wrong hands can be dangerous…
The only example we need: OneDrive for Business…until Microsoft makes a change and restricts every users completely unmotivated administrative privilieges to the OneDrive for Business/Mysite, we want to stop our users any way we can.

So, this is what I have found that can assist in this task in a Office 365 scenario:

1. Remove SPD as a download from Office 365 (Makes it harder)

2. Prevent the use of SPD (Not easy to accomplish in OneDrive for Business)

3. Educate your users. (Often not realistic at all)

1. Remove SPD as a download from Office 365

OK, if you did not know this, Office 365 has a link for every user, where they can freely or included in the license, download software. It includes the Office 365 Proplus and Lync+Outlook for Mac and more, one of the applications offered to the users is SharePoint Designer.
The link to download SharePoint Designer can be removed by a global Administrator though…(thank you Microsoft)
This is what you do:

Click the ‘startbutton’ in the Applauncher of your Office 365 tenant, then click on Admin

O365 Admin0

Expand Service Settings and select User Software

O365 Admin1x

Deselect the SharePoint Designer checkbox and hit Save.

O365 Admin2x

Done. This configuration will stop users from easily finding SharePoint Designer inside of Office 365

Note: Remember however, they can still install it from other sources.

If you did not know this, the software is installed by the users from here:

A

Software1x

B

Software2x

C

Software3x

This setting will be removed/Hidden from the user if you follow the steps above.

2. Prevent the use of SPD

Before ywe begin, this is NOT easily done in OneDrive for Business. Since every OneDrive for Business is its own Site Collection (or part of the mysite) it has to be configured on every single OneDrive for Business. And even if this is accomplished, it can be ‘unconfigured’ by the user since he/she has administrative privileges.

Stop the use of SharePoint Designer completely in a single Site Collection this way:

In the Site Settings menu, select the Site Collections Site Settings

Site Settings 1x

Select SharePoint Designer Settings

Site Settings 2x

Deselect Enable SharePoint Designer to stop its use completely. Or, if you rather let the users do some things but not all, select the minor options as you choose.

Site Settings 3x

Hit OK and you are safe!

3. Educate your users

This is actually not a bad idea, depending on the type of users and the kind of business you are and the size and so on, this can be the very best way, but it can also be the hardest, the most expensive and the least secure way.
My recommendation, do keep this in mind. It can be a good adea to put some trust in your users and give them some responsibility, sometimes…
How to do this step, that is not my area of expertese, but there are others who know this. If you are a small organization, use email! Or Office 365 Video?

With that, we are done for this time.

Export a document library using Export-SPWeb and itemurl

September 5, 2013 Leave a comment

Export-SPWeb

(This is my better version of the TechNet articles on the same CMDlet that does a poor job with the details, I hope that it will help some of you)
SharePoint 2010 | SharePoint 2013
Applies to:  SharePoint Foundation 2010 | SharePoint Server 2010 | SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013 

Exports a site, list, or library.


Export-SPWeb [-Identity] <GUID/Name/SPWeb object> -Path <String> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-CompressionSize <Int32>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-HaltOnError <SwitchParameter>] [-HaltOnWarning <SwitchParameter>] [-IncludeUserSecurity <SwitchParameter>] [-IncludeVersions <LastMajor | CurrentVersion | LastMajorAndMinor | All>] [-ItemUrl <String>] [-NoFileCompression <SwitchParameter>] [-NoLogFile <SwitchParameter>] [-UseSqlSnapshot <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

——————–EXAMPLE———————–

Export-SPWeb http://site –Path "c:\temp\site export.cmp" -ItemURL "/subsite/documents"

This example exports the document library at http://site/subsite/documents to a new file called ‘site export.cmp' in the ‘C:\temp’ directory.

Parameters

Parameter

Required

Description

Identity Required Specifies the URL or GUID of the Web to be exported. The type must be either
– a valid GUID, in the form ‘12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh’
– a valid name of a SharePoint site (for example, MySPSite1)
or a URL: http://blog.blksthl.com
or an instance of a valid SPWeb object
Path Required Specifies the name of the export file. If the -NoFileCompression parameter is used, a directory must be specified; otherwise, any file format is valid.
Example: “c:\temp\exportedsite.cmp” or with the -NoFileCompression “c:\temp\exportedsite\”
AssignmentCollection Optional Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment   object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

                                                                                                                                         Note:
When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.
CompressionSize Optional Sets the maximum file size for the compressed export files. If the total size of the exported package is greater than this size, the exported package will be split into multiple files.
Confirm Optional Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following   command: get-help about_commonparameters
Force Optional -Force Forcefully overwrites the export package if it already exists.The type must be either of the following values:
True
FalseThe default value is False.
HaltOnError Optional Stops the export process when an error occurs.
HaltOnWarning Optional Stops the export process when a warning occurs.
IncludeUserSecurity Optional Preserves the user security settings except for SPLists that have broken inheritance and item level   permissions set.
(Use Import-SPWeb with –IncludeUserSecurity to preserve security on import)
IncludeVersions Optional Indicates the type of file and list item version history to be included in the export operation. If the
-IncludeVersions parameter is absent, the Export-SPWeb cmdlet by default uses a value of CurrentVersion. The type must be any one of the following versions:
LastMajor “Last major version for files and list items (default)”
CurrentVersion “The current version, either the last major version or the last minor version”
LastMajorAndMinor “Last major and last minor version for files and list items”
All “All versions for files and list items”
ItemUrl Optional Specifies the relative path to the object to be exported. Can also be a GUIDThe type must be a valid relative path, for example, /Subsite/Documents
or a valid GUID in the form: 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh
NoFileCompression Optional Either enables or disables file compression in the export package. The export package is stored in the   folder specified by the Path parameter or Identity parameter. We recommend that you use this parameter for performance reasons. If compression is enabled, the export process can increase by approximately 30 percent.
NoLogFile Optional Suppresses the generation of an export log file. If this parameter is not specified, the Export-SPWeb   cmdlet will generate an export log file in the same location as the export package. The log file uses Unified Logging Service (ULS).It is recommended to use this parameter. However, for performance reasons, you might not want to generate a log file.
UseSqlSnapshot Optional Specifies a SQL Database Snapshot will be created when the export process begins, and all exported   data will be retrieved directly from the database snapshot. This snapshot will be automatically deleted when export completes.
WhatIf Optional Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For   more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Enterprise Edition of SharePoint Server 2013 – what’s in it?

February 11, 2013 1 comment

Why get the Enterprise edition of SharePoint Server 2013?

That is a question you should ask yourself at the beginning of every new SharePoint Project where you are planning to set up a new farm. Depending on what features and functionality you are planning to use, the editions will offer you a different solution.
Obviously, the Enterprise edition has a bigger prisetag, but if so only one of the features is what you or your customer is looking for, you could end up saving money by using a built in feature instead of developing your own.
Say that you only need one of the Enterprise features and you end up getting the Enterprise license, you get the functionality you was looking for, but in addition, you will have all the other Enterprise features available for use at a later time. The odds tell us that the farm will evolve and new functionality will be asked for.

Note: The complete list of all features in all editions of SHarePoint 2013 can be found here: SharePoint 2013 feature comparison chart all editions

The top 10 lost of features that make customers buy Enterprise edition, at least from my experience (feedback on this is welcomed and will be considered for implementation)

1 InfoPath Forms Services
2 Excel Services
3 PowerPivot
4 PerformancePoint Services
5 Power View
6 ScoreCards and DashBoards
7 Visio Services
8 Content Search Web Part
9 Analytics Plattform
10 Host Named Site Collections

Enough with the planning and strategy/sales/aquisitions dravel…lets dive into the features!

The ‘shortlist’ of ENT features looks like this, these are the features that you DO NOT get unless you have the Enterprise edition:
