  • 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.

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!

  • Recovering Dismissed Messages in the 365 Message Center

    Recovering Dismissed Messages in the 365 Message Center

    During a recent episode of the 365 Message Center show, a live viewer (Dean) asked how to restore dismissed messages in the list. Initially I told him it couldn’t be done, but then quickly remembered it could be done. So I promised a quick video to show how to do it. Check out my quick video below where I show how to easily get dismissed messages back in the ‘active’ view.
