    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…

  • Set the default open behavior for browser enabled documents

    Set the default open behavior for browser enabled documents

    I was recently asked how to configure documents that are in a SharePoint document library to open in their native application on the client computer instead of the browser. This question came from a user in SharePoint Online, but the answer is the same for those using SharePoint Server 2013, 2016, and 2019. There is a feature at the site collection level and a setting on every document library that you use to decide how documents get opened. I searched for an official Microsoft document detailing how this can be accomplished, but I could only find a post from 2014 that said it was for Office Web Apps – a…

  • Managing SharePoint Access Requests

    Managing SharePoint Access Requests

    During a recent intranet deployment project, a client asked what would happen if she clicked the ‘Accept’ link on the SharePoint access request email she received from one of her coworkers. She was a bit surprised by my answer and after that conversation, I thought it would be good to do a quick video explaining the process. What permissions do users get if you accept their access request? How are those users managed on the SharePoint site and is there a best practice for managing access requests? Watch the video below to find out!

    How to share SharePoint Online sites with external users

    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.
