  • SharePoint Alert Settings

    Enable Alerts for SharePoint 2019, 2016, 2013

    Allowing users to set alerts on SharePoint lists and libraries is the easiest way to keep users informed with what is going on within your intranet and team (collaboration) sites. This functionality has been a part of SharePoint for many versions and is an easy feature for users to take advantage of. That is, IF you have all the settings correct. Your first sign that alerts are not setup for use is when looking at the library (or list) tab in the ribbon, and you don’t see the Alert me button in the Share & Track section. There are two settings you need to check: first you need to make…

    Creating a custom Microsoft Flow template gallery in SharePoint

    Microsoft Flow is the workflow tool in Office 365 to automate your tasks and business processes, whether your systems are on-premises, in Microsoft’s cloud, or even if they are not part of Microsoft’s catalog. Flow allows you to create templates to help you not recreate the wheel when you are creating your flows and you can even share those flows with others by exporting the templates. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to work with Sarah Haase (Office Apps & Services Microsoft MVP) on an interesting issue: how to share Microsoft Flow templates within an organization without uploading them to the public Flow template gallery. Sarah put together a blog series…
