101 ways to share a document.

Fellow SharePoint lovers! (And OneDrive for Business…)

SharedLove

Share the Love

More and more individuals and organizations are starting to realize the beauty of OneDrive for Business, the way it allows you to be always up to date and to be able to always access your information no matter where you are or on what device you are on.

This article will delve© into detail on how you can keep the information in one place, instead of spreading multiple copies and versions around like we have always done using email as the sharing method of choice (Not to mention USB sticks). As you all most likely know, every time you send an email with an attachment of one of your files, a new copy and possible a new version of that document is created, it happens out of your control as well and this is not something that we want, it has simply been the only way to share, externally for sure and internally it has been the easiest way for the lazy.

Now, what has changed? What’s new? What’s so special with OneDrive for Business so that we can share thru some kind of Microsoft magic and files never have to be sent in email? What’s up with that? Well, implementing OneDrive for Business as a part of Office 365 is one step, you can however still work like you always have…removing the old Home directory and the Shared folders is another. You can however still work like you always have, sending attachments using email, but, these steps will allow you and your coworkers to adopt a new way of doing things, a better more secure and controlled way to work.

ShareTrad1

Traditional sharing, send a copy of the original to each user, same as when printing a letter and posting it…

ShareNew1

Modern sharing, one original, no copies. Everyone reads or edits the same file.

As you all also probably know and think right now, there are other cloud services that can do this and yes, I agree, but if you have invested in Office 365 already, then you get OneDrive for Business with 1TB (!) storage for free (or it is included in the price but free sounds better, and compared to using a different service like dropbox or box, then it IS free). You have a single sign on between the different applications in Office 365 and if you have implemented ADFS, then you will even have single sign on from your PC. Yes, I know that storage will be unlimited soon…but honestly, 1TB IS unlimited…

But enough of that, now I will show you where you can share a document from your OneDrive for business.

First off, there is a setting that are configured globally in the SharePoint admin portal of Office 365 that we need to know about.

Share1

External Sharing, there are 3 levels to select from. Can be set on the tenant or per Site collection. This setting can only be configured by a Global Office 365 Administrator.
The third level means anonymous access…(No! You really shouldn’t)

Share2

(Note also that if you restrict sharing on the tenant, then you cannot allow it on the site collection level) When these are set, you can start sharing.

There are a lot of places to do this for the mobile OneDrive for Business user

Share3

– OneDrive for Business Online
– OneDrive for Business Offline (from the local cache)
– The Office Applications
– The OneDrive for Business mobile app (Windows Phone, IOS, Android)
– Office Mobile (Windows Phone, IOS, Android) only shares a link, does not grant access
– Outlook Online (formerly known as Outlook Web Access)

It is more or less the same experience everywhere, the web dialog for sharing a document looks like this, from here you can share with internal users as well as external users, and all you need is an email address.

OneDrive for Business Online

Share4

Click SHARE then select how to share, or select the document(s) and click on the Share ‘button’

Share5

The dialog then looks like this

Share6

As you can see, the checkbox for ‘Require sign-in’ is checked by default, unchecking that allows anonymous access to this document.
This checkbox is only available if anonymous sharing is enabled at the tenant and at the site collection level.

The names can be internal users by name or email address, it can be external users by email or it can be everyone.

Share7

The permission level can also be set here, they speak for themselves. (Note that sharing with edit allows the recipient to in turn share with or without edit)

Share8

You can type in a message, this will be the text in the email that is sent to the recipient

Share9

Under SHOW OPTIONS you have the option to not send an email at all.

Share10

The recipient receives an email with this content

Share11

Clicking the link takes the user straight to the shared file, in its location.

Under Shared with, you can see who currently has access to this document.

Share12

When a document is shared, you can also see that the little user icon is replaced to show that someone else besides you now also has access to this document or this file.

Share13

Unshare the file again by clicking on that icon and in the Shared with dialog, select Stop sharing and save Changes.

Share135

After a quick refresh, you will see that the little icon is back to the Padlock.

Share14

This is how you share things in the OneDrive for Business Online, it is very similar in SharePoint Online (A few exceptions like unsharing differs).

The rest you will know when you see them:

The OneDrive for Business Offline (from the local cache)

Share15

The Office Applications

Share16

The OneDrive for Business mobile app (Windows Phone, IOS, Android)

Share17

Office Mobile, Word, Excel, PowerPoint (Windows Phone, IOS, Android) only shares a link, does not grant access

Share18

Outlook Online (formerly known as Outlook Web Access)

Select INSERT

Share19

Select Share with OneDrive (They really should stop confusing the business version with the consumer version…)

Share20

Apply the proper permission level, read or read/write

Share21

Share22

Note that the file is not sent as an attachment unless you specifically choose to do so. It only looks like an attachment, the file never leaves your personal OneDrive for Business.

And, to sum it all up, a message from inside Outlook Online:

A quick-guide to setting up OWA with SharePoint 2013 – start to finish


Future and existing Office Web Apps – OWA Lovers!
😁
This time, I just found that a quick guide like this was something that I needed myself, and since I could not find anything that was short and compact enough, I made my own guide…
This Little guide is completely based on the TechNet articles mentioned in the references section, but this is nontheless a lot shorter and easier to follow.

Oakwood_clockx

The old Clock at Oakwood station



Click your OWA task of choice:
Step 1
Prepare a 2008 R2 Server to run OWA
Prepare a 2012 Server to run OWA
Step 2
Install Office Web Apps Server
Step 3
Deploy a single-server Office Web Apps Server farm that uses HTTPS
Step 4
Configure SharePoint to use OWA over https (recommended)
Configure SharePoint to use OWA over http
Additional
Disconnect SharePoint from OWA farm
Configure the Default open behavior for documents
Credits and References




Prepare a 2008 R2 server to run Office Web Apps Server

1. Install the following software (Minimum required):

2. Import the server module
(In a PowerShell prompt running as administrator and with the SharePoint snapin loaded)
Import-Module ServerManager

3. Add the required Features and Roles by running this command:
Add-WindowsFeature Web-Server,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,Web-Static-Content,Web-App-Dev,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Net-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Includes,Web-Security,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Console,Ink-Handwriting,IH-Ink-Support

4. Restart the server if prompted when the command finishes.

5. Done

Back to menu



Install Office Web Apps Server
1. Download Office Web Apps Server from the Microsoft Download Center (Link).

2. Run Setup and walk through the steps in the wizard.
Windows Server 2012, open the .img file directly and run Setup.exe
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, use any program that can mount or extract .img files. Then run Setup.exe

3. Download and install the Office Web Apps Server update KB2810007.

TechNet Reference

Deploy a single-server Office Web Apps Server farm that uses HTTPS

If components of the .NET Framework 3.5 were installed and then removed, you might see “500 Web Service Exceptions” or “500.21 – Internal Server Error” messages when you run OfficeWebApps cmdlets. To fix this, run the following sample commands from an elevated command prompt to clean up settings that could prevent Office Web Apps Server from functioning correctly:
In Windows Server 2008 R2:
%systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -iru
iisreset /restart /noforce
In Windows Server 2012:
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:IIS-ASPNET45

1. Create the Office Web Apps Server farm

New-OfficeWebAppsFarm -InternalUrl <InternalURL> -ExternalUrl <ExternalURL> -CertificateName <CertificateName> -EditingEnabled

<InternalURL> FQDN name of the server that runs Office Web Apps Server
<ExternalURL> FQDN name that can be accessed on the Internet
<CertificateName> Is the friendly name of the https/SSL certificate used
-EditingEnabled, optional and is added to enable editing in Office Web Apps

2. Verify that the Office Web Apps Server farm was created successfully

Go to the https://internal.url.com/hosting/discovery
If you see a (WOPI)-discovery XML file in your web browser then all is good.

Depending on the security settings of your web browser, you might see a message that prompts you to select Show all content before the contents of the discovery XML file are displayed.

3. Done

TechNet Reference
Back to menu



Configure SharePoint to use OWA over https (recommended)
(In a PowerShell prompt running as administrator and with the SharePoint snapin loaded)

The Web Application to be used must be configured to use Claims as authentication method, else OWA will not work.

1. Create new binding:
New-SPWOPIBinding -ServerName <WacServerName>
(<WacServerName> must be the FQDN internal URL)

2. Verify current zone:
Get-SPWOPIZone

3. Change to internal-https if it is set to http:
Set-SPWOPIZone –zone “internal-https

4. Verify https:
Get-SPWOPIZone

5. Verify functionality in a document library (Not using the system account, appearing as sharepoint\system)
Click on the ‘Three dots’ after a documents name and see if you get a preview, if you do, its all good!

6. Done

TechNet Reference
Back to menu



Configure SharePoint to use OWA over http
(In a PowerShell prompt running as administrator and with the SharePoint snapin loaded)

2. Verify current zone:
Get-SPWOPIZone

3. Change to internal-http:
Set-SPWOPIZone –zone “internal-http”

4. Verify http:
Get-SPWOPIZone

5. Check AllowoverHttp setting:
(Get-SPSecurityTokenServiceConfig).AllowOAuthOverHttp

6. Set AllowOAuthOverHttp to True.
$config = (Get-SPSecurityTokenServiceConfig)
$config.AllowOAuthOverHttp = $true
$config.Update()

7. Verify change:
(Get-SPSecurityTokenServiceConfig).AllowOAuthOverHttp

8. Verify functionality in a document library (Not using the system account, appearing as sharepoint\system)

9. Done

TechNet Reference
Back to menu



Disconnect SharePoint from OWA farm
(In a PowerShell prompt running as administrator and with the SharePoint snapin loaded)

1. Remove the binding
Remove-SPWOPIBinding –All:$true

2. Done

TechNet Reference
Back to menu



Configure the Default open behavior for documents

1. On a per farm level: Adjust the default open behavior on a per-file-type basis by using the New-SPWOPIBinding and Set-SPWOPIBinding Windows PowerShell cmdlets.

2. On a per Site Collection level by activating the ‘Open Documents in Client Applications by Default’ site Collection feature.

3. On a per Document library level using the Library setting – Advanced setting – ‘Default open behavior for browser-enabled documents’

4. Done

SharePoint Server 2013 Language Packs


Hi dear friends!

Update: Additional SharePoint Server 2013 LP’s (the full list) made GA, Generally Available since April 30 – SharePoint Server 2013 LP’s

Language support in SharePoint 2013 onprem…
(Lacking better info, I assume that the same list applies to SharePoint online)

IMG_0987x

Remember this anyone?

If you are like me you have not seen anything official on the topic of Language Packs and release dates and availability yet (written April 16, 2013).
I don’t know if anyone has put this info out there yet, but I have not found it and then I figure it won’t hurt to do it here I guess…

In my case, I was looking for Swedish, but others need to find their special local language, now I have some info for all of you:

Jump to:
SharePoint Server 2013 LP’s (44 LP’s)
SharePoint Foundation 2013 LP’s (44 LP’s)
Office Web Apps 2013 LP’s (44 LP’s)
Credits and References

 SharePoint in the languages listed under Server Language packs are also available in a localized server version, these are also available at MSDN  


SharePoint Server 2013
Since (March 28) April 30th, all Language Packs are now available as a free download (link) Select your language in the dropdown or use the directlink in the list below.
(serverlanguagepack.img) I recommend renaming the files when downloaded since all LP’s have the same name, add for example the two letter code for your country after the filename: serverlanguagepack_se.exe (Swedish SPS LP)

TechNet suggests you take one of the following actions:
For Windows Server 2012, open the .img file directly and run Setup.exe (double-click it).
For Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, use a program that can mount or extract .img files. Then run Setup.exe (double-click it).

SharePoint 2013 feature comparison chart all editions


Did you ever see such a pretty table before..? Which one to pick?? This has to be one of the harder choices in Life…

threegoodthingsx(Sugarrush central at Newark Liberty International Airport – New Jersey)

Last Updated 2013-10-08, ‘search connector framework’, ‘on-premises search index’ and ‘tunable relevancy’ – source: Search (thanks to Mattias Brunnert)

The feature list of SharePoint gets longer and longer, richer and richer, this is the (as far as I know) complete list of features in the three different versions of SharePoint 2013 on-premise (not SharePoint online): SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013 Standard Edition | SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise Edition. To save you all a few ‘swipes’ or ‘rolls’ on the old mouse wheel, I have also added a menu here at the top, click on any of the focus areas to jump right in.
