SharePoint Tricks Posts

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.

Recently I have seen on the community that when you add a column with the internal name of Thumbnail, SharePoint automatically generates a preview of the document. In the post below, we’ll add this column to multiple SharePoint sites that have the list or library that you intend to have the preview of the document. This feature has been requested on the SharePoint User Voice.

Today, we will review and use a List formatting, one of the features that SharePoint and apply it via PnP PowerShell. You can use it to apply to multiple sites with this automated process. The concept of this sample is that you have a Team inside your organization and you want to share the contacts of the persons on your SharePoint using a list. The PowerShell created will allow you to create all the required assets for using this sample.

Column formatting can enhance our list/documents inside SharePoint. Today, I’ll use PnP PowerShell in combination with the Column formation to send an email to the person that creates a new item on the Documents list. This list is created when a new site collection is created.  We’ll add a new view on your list which and a simple email button that allow you to send an email for the creator of the item.

On the last article, I explained how to activate the possibility to share the screen with external users using Microsoft Teams. But depending on the organization, you may want just a specific policy setting for a user(s) to have certain abilities on the Microsoft Teams Meetings.

Often I do remote sessions where I need to request control over the other person PC. However, the Microsoft Teams has this option is deactivated by default. That can make this meeting to take longer and in the next blog post, I’ll let you know on how to activate this option on Microsoft Teams.

With the script that we’re showing, you can reset the masterpage on a SharePoint site and get back to the default masterpage (Seattle). This command can be used by any SharePoint version, a few notes that I want the user to be aware before running this script.

With the next PnP PowerShell script, you will be able to Enable the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure on your SharePoint site to have access to some features that you may need. This process will change your SharePoint site structure so please be aware of that when executing this script. This script is valid for SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2019.
