  • A brief aside

    I’d like to take a brief break from discussion SharePoint and Office to talk about something else which means a lot to me. Last month, the UK government offered a formal apology for the inhumane treatment of Alan Turing. Alan Turing was a brilliant...
  • How to: Create a read-only view

    I'm continuing my series of how to videos by showing how to create a read-only view. There are several reasons why you might wish to do this, the most common being that you want to have forms that cannot be altered after a process has been completed....
  • Phonetic Search

  • Document Sets

    I'm continuing my series of posts highlighting some of the (many) new features which are going to be coming in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. The content management capabilities of SharePoint have been extended, allowing you to group documents together...
  • Content Ratings

    Continuing my series of posts about new features in Microsoft SharePoint 2010, I’d like to talk about content rating. This is a feature that was much demanded in MOSS 2007. So many people wanted it, that the code for content rating was included in the...
  • More theme customisation

    A lot of people, when they first get SharePoint, instantly want to make it not look like the out of the box SharePoint. In Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, there are a lot more themes to choose from. When you create a team site, there is a “getting...

    With the SharePoint Conference this week, Microsoft has begun lifting the shroud of secrecy around the next version of SharePoint, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, due out in the first half of next year. In light of this release of information, I...
