Have You Met…Modern SharePoint Lists?

Microsoft recently announced the (limited) release of the new lists in SharePoint Online, as part of Office 365.  For those of you who use lists extensively, I think you’ll find some significant changes and improvements here, and Microsoft has opened the door to the use of “PowerApps” (still in preview, video on this coming soon) and Microsoft Flow, for creation of SharePoint-aware mobile apps by “citizen developers,” ie, people like me who don’t have coding chops but who understand the application, can configure, drag drop, etc.

Have a look, and don’t hesitate to contact Collacrity if we can shed more light on the subject.

Have You Met…the new SharePoint Site Contents page?

If you have two minutes to learn something new today…

Please enjoy the latest in our “Have You Met…” series, a quick introduction to the new Site Contents page in SharePoint.  It features side-by-side comparison between old (ie “Classic”) and new (ie, “Modern”) Site Contents pages in SharePoint.

As always, if you have feedback, please don’t hesitate to join the conversation by commenting in-line or contacting Collacrity directly.

Have You Met…Modern Document Libraries in SharePoint?

Please enjoy the first in a series of “Have You Met…?” videos, designed to give you a quick, two-minute introduction to a new capability or piece of technology that is relevant to information workers.

This first one is focused on the recently released (to First Wave adopters — ask your Office 365 Administrator if you don’t know if this means you) “Modern Document Library Experience” in SharePoint.  We provide a brief overview of some of the changes, and some new capabilities, of modern document libraries.

We’re very interested in your feedback, topics you’d like an introduction to, or other ideas for content.  Please contact Collacrity with your feedback!

Five Stages of Microsoft Partnership

I spent some time with a colleague this week discussing how partners work with Microsoft, and it's a conversation I've had in many shapes and forms for almost 15 years with many Microsoft partners in partner briefings, conferences, advisory  boards, executive round tables, and other less formal venues (ie/eg, over beers).  Having built much of...
