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.

I don’t think anyone will deny that the last year has been an interesting one for those of us working in the SharePoint space. Personally, I felt like we had to look at new things in Office 365, and try to figure out how we could replace some of our previous workloads in SharePoint.

The impression was that no new improvements were being made in SharePoint, while new portals and “experiences” were being built, leveraging some of the existing technology. Perhaps what we were missing was someone guiding us, and the product, in a common direction.

After a week at the MVP Summit with the Microsoft Product Team, that works on SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, as well as the ESPC 2015 keynote presentation to the world, I can tell you SharePoint is back! And I’m very excited!

The main reason SharePoint users don’t pay a great amount of attention to SharePoint file names can be resumed in just one word: Metadata.

That is why I decided to include, as one of the coverage points of our SharePoint Document Management blog series, some tips about SharePoint permissions, sharing how to give access to resources correctly, how to prevent SharePoint security breaches, and how to plan your permissions without compromising your document management and automation system in SharePoint.
