Those changes, although no too drastic, will have an impact on users and their workloads. A few of the crew at @REgarding365, Sarah Haase, Loryan Strant, Darrell Webster and I, decided to get together to discuss the upcoming changes and what the impacts might be. Enjoy the video:
I created a new SharePoint Online Communications site recently and I wanted to share it with someone outside my organization. Unfortunately, when I tried to share the site with them, I received an error!
The error, “Your organization’s policies don’t allow you to share with these users. Go to External Sharing in the Office 365 admin center to enable it.“, is pretty straightforward and to the point: external sharing is turned off for Office 365 and I need to enable it….or is the error wrong?!?
Check out my video below where I show the issue and how to enable external sharing in SharePoint Online.
I am heading to Canada on June 2nd for SharePoint Saturday Montreal!
I will be giving a session titled Gaining insights with Power BI. In the session, I will talk about how to build compelling dashboards and how you can get insights from your data. I will also cover managing the Power BI service and how to use the different apps.
The title of this post is a little silly, but I will be speaking at the Minnesota SharePoint Users Group and the Minnesota Office 365 User Group in February!
First up on February 14th, I will be presenting an intro session on Microsoft Flow and discussing the Flow road-map. You can find more details and register here: MN SharePoint User Group February
The second session will be on February 15th at the Minnesota Office 365 user group. This session will focus on Power BI – with an extra focus on how to administer the service. Details and register here: MN O365 User Group February

Another great SharePoint Saturday is scheduled for St. Louis on January 20th and I’m so happy to be a speaker! I am giving two sessions at #SPSSTL, one on using on-prem data with cloud tools and the second one on using Microsoft Teams!
Join me at the largest SQL event in Middle Tennessee – Nashville SQL Saturday (#SQLSatNash) on January 13th, 2018.
I’m giving a session first thing in the morning – Using Your On-prem Data in a Cloud World. We will be looking at how you can use your data, wherever it is, with Microsoft’s cloud tools. During the session, I will do a live install and take you from the concept, all the way to being able to utilize on-prem SQL data in the cloud.
