Category: SharePoint 2016

SharePoint 2016 is Microsoft’s document management and collaboration tool with a software-as-a-service (SAAS) strategy at its core. Like SharePoint 2013, the product is offered in the cloud as part of the Office 365 suite and is known as SharePoint Online; the on-premises version is known as SharePoint Server 2016.

Microsoft identified simple sharing and seamless collaboration, the ability to Engage and inform your organisation, a focal point to harness collective knowledge and the ability to transform business processes as some of the main features in this release of SharePoint.

Therefore, with this update, the SharePoint 2016 category is full of handy tips, tricks, advise and How To videos specifically for new and existing SharePoint 2016 users. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our expert blogs, eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

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.

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.

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.
