Many years ago, I came to the conclusion that thoroughly training end users on SharePoint is a waste of time for employees and trainers. I don’t mean to say that SharePoint trainers are bad people or that all training programs are useless. It’s just that comprehensive SharePoint training, crammed into a 1/2 day or five days is by and large wasteful. This might sound controversial, but this is the conclusion I have come to after many years of unsuccessful attempts by myself and other Microsoft MVP trainers like me.
5,000 is a familiar number for anyone who had more than 5,000 records in a SharePoint list. List View threshold is something that many of us have faced and wanted to get rid of it by expanding. But then again we think about the best practices and the good it does. So, we often end up not increasing it, but creating some indexes on the columns. The problem is many of us did not know this can be done. Even I did not in the beginning. I am sure many of us still do not know.
We all have to make some tough decisions when making larger SharePoint environments. One of the toughest is which SharePoint services shall be running on which server. We would like our servers to be busy at same levels, but it is difficult to find the correct formula most of the times. Microsoft has been running SharePoint on online servers for a few years so far and with currently over 20,000 databases over 19 databases across the world, its unlikely there is anyone better who knows which services work well together other than Microsoft.
Great…now that I have your attention, let me explain. At C5 Insight, we talk about LUCK…a lot. No, not as something random that happens by chance, but as we define LUCK here at our organization.

As it happens with Microsoft products, there are two competing versions of the same thing and eventually one gets phased out. Now it’s Power BI for Office 365’s turn. It had a good run, but Microsoft is finally killing off the initial iteration of Power BI to let its new service move in and run the show. I’ve been wondering when this would happen for quite a while now, and its finally happened. Honestly I believe it’s for the better, but there are a few things that still haven’t come to fruition. In your Office 365 Message Center, you might have seen this message on the right.
At the European SharePoint conference in Stockholm, Sweden I had the unique opportunity to interview Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President Microsoft – SharePoint and OneDrive.
