When you share the file from your One Drive with external users, often is to collaborate during the lifecycle of the document. There are some scenarios where you may want to know when that file is edited. So we have PowerAutomate where you can create a Flow to detect these changes. However, there are some tricks that you need to use in order to detect these changes.

A couple of days ago someone asked about how they can create a SharePoint list from an Excel file. There are a couple of methods available to perform this task but on this blog post, I will do the easiest way on my opinion to make this to happen.

Microsoft Teams allow you to quickly increase your collaboration and creating live events are extremely useful for some scenarios inside your organization. These type of event have some key features that you’ll not be able to get from the regular meetings that are organized on a daily bases. This features can be used for example to share a new product that you’re planning to release, have some training session, webinar, etc.

In my last blog post, I shared a PowerShell script that allows you to export a term set to a CSV file. This script has similar purposes but with fewer lines of code. This will extract the complete term group instead of the Term set as well. If you which, you can edit the file created and delete the unwanted term set that was created by this command.

Sometimes when building some internal processes to organizations, it’s possible that it is required to create a SharePoint list. However, sometimes it can create confusion for the end-user that sees the list there. So we can hide that list from the SharePoint site to avoid this. Everything will work as normal on the list and it’ll be accessible via URL. This scenario can be used as well when you’re building a new list using List Formatting and you don’t want the list to be available just yet. This is possible to be done in a SharePoint with a few steps. We’ll use the PNP Powershell and Office 365 CLI to demonstrate.

When we’re collaborating inside our organizations we often send links with access to the document. This task is done in a dairy and sometimes it is difficult to understand which files as been shared. So a couple of weeks ago, I cross with this feature that is recent on SharePoint/OneDrive that allows you to get a report, on CSV, to verify which files are being shared.

Sometimes, we need to quickly create an HTML page to share some content. In this case, it was a GIT presentation that was built and I had the idea to create an Azure web app to store this information since it’s an HTML page. This will help in the case we need to share this information with anyone. I’ll explain step-by-step the process that I’ve done. This could be one of the fastest ways to publish something with a public URL.

Often during our daily work, we’ve notification pop-up here and there on our screens, this disturbs our concentration on certain tasks. When that happen you can miss the logic that you’re developing to complete a task. To overcome these situations, modern communication tools allow you to set your availability to “Do-not-Disturb(DND)”. But, I’ll say that it depends. There are some persons that you may want to be disturbed by.

When creating a new page a header with the title of the page will be shown to the user. In the current days, it’s not possible to remove that header from the page using the SharePoint interface. Today, we will share a PowerShell that allows you to remove that area from the page and some article that you can use with different options.
