  • Blog Post: Better with Office - introduction

    SharePoint is part of the Microsoft product stack. This doesn’t mean that it’s just another item on a Microsoft price list. What it means is that it’s designed to work with the other products Microsoft produces. In other posts, I’ve talked about using InfoPath and SharePoint together, but that’s not...
  • Blog Post: Better with Office - Metadata

    What is metadata? The simple definition is that it’s data about data. In the case of SharePoint, it’s information about files and documents stored within SharePoint. There are some bits of metadata that are included as standard, such as who created a document, who last edited it, where in SharePoint...

  • Blog Post: What do I get?

    SharePoint is a very big product. I’d even go so far as to say huge. It has a wide range of capabilities in a variety of areas. This is a very good thing in terms of what you get for your money. It’s a very bad thing when you’re trying to get your head around the product for the first time. It probably...

  • Blog Post: SharePoint is the answer!

  • Blog Post: The Housing Analogy

    I’d like to share an analogy for SharePoint. Just imagine you’ve bought a new house. That house is SharePoint. The chances are, you will have had some help in the process from the likes of solicitors, estate agents, removals companies and so on. Those guys are the SharePoint partners. Their job is...

  • Blog Post: What will it cost me?

    I like browsing gadget shops. I enjoy looking round at shelves filled with shiny things, usually with flashing lights or fun noises. Everything is fun and techy and sparkly. The thing is, I can’t think of anything I’ve ever bought from those shops. That’s because fun and shiny tends to add a lot more...

With Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 standard, you get that ability still, but you...

    I’ve had someone ask me about automatically giving InfoPath forms a unique number.
