You would think that when you select Share with specific people in OneDrive you are only giving access to the person whose email address you have entered.
If you grant that user Edit permissions to the document, that user can then share that document with others without you even knowing.
If, on the other hand, you grant a user View access to the document and the user tries to share it with another person, you are notified by email to Accept or Decline the request.
Just thought you should be aware.
I met my now husband at the Ignite 2015 Conference in Chicago. We shared a table at lunch with some other SharePoint junkies. He was married to someone else at the time so he went straight to the Friends Zone. We stayed in touch over social media asking each other for advice and tips on our respective SharePoint journies.
Flashforward to 2017 and SharePoint Saturday Twin Cities. He was a speaker from Portland, OR. I was an organizer from the Twin Cities. I offered to let him stay in the guest room for the event. We spent all of our waking time together.
He then flew out for a visit for Thanksgiving and met the family.
Again for Christmas.
I flew to Portland, OR for Valentine’s day.
By the end of May 2018, we were moving in together. Now we talk SharePoint, Teams and OneDrive all the time.
We decided to get married in May of 2021 but were thwarted by Covid-19. Pushed the wedding out a year to May 22, 2022.
It was worth the wait.
Thank you Microsoft to bringing two SharePoint junkies together in technology and in love.
Hey Tamara, Why can’t I delete the Calendar view I created in my SharePoint Online list? To delete any other view all I need to do is select Edit current view from the view drop-down and hit the delete button on the next screen. I don’t get that option when I try to edit the Calendar view. HELP!
Whew! That sounds frustrating. You are right in that the delete option is not available from the Edit current view selection. The Edit the current view option for the Calendar view looks like this.
Not a delete button in sight.
You can still delete the Calendar view the old-fashioned way.
- Go to the list with the Calendar view.
- Click on the cog in the upper right corner.
- Select List settings.
- On the List settings page, scroll down to the bottom where the views are listed.
- Click on your Calendar view.
- Now you will see the Delete button. Click the Delete button and the view is deleted.
Remember, deleted views do NOT go into the Recycle bin.
Everyone is excited about their new Fantasy Football Teams and Leagues here in the United States. A lot of deliberation and planning go into selecting members of your team. Hours even days are spent pouring over players’ stats and skills before making the final choices.
What about our Fantasy SharePoint Teams? Imagine if you could build your dream team from the ground up.
- What stats and skills would you pull onto the team?
- Would you define roles and the skills needed to fulfill those roles OR would you define the skills and then define the roles based on the people with the various skills?
- Would those skills be different if it was SharePoint Online, On Premises or Hybrid?
- Would personality traits enter into the equation? If so what would they be?
Here’s a couple I think are needed regardless if you go old fashioned roles based or skills based.
- Know and understand the tools available in the browser to prevent over development. Exam 77-419
- Information Architecture / Library Science background
- Search Engine Optimization
- Keyword Query Language
- Understand how SharePoint interacts with other Office Applications.
- Create Search Results templates for SharePoint 2013
- Know and understand SharePoint Designer Workflows, …
- Can work in one or more of the following languages:
- Understand and can make use of the client-side object model and REST APIs.
It’s only a start.

Documents aren’t the only thing in an organization that need to be managed to mitigate risk and increase employee efficiencies. Videos, meeting recordings, blog posts, microblogs and activity feeds are all part of your enterprise content.
These frequently missed file types have now earned a place in your file plan and retention policies.
When a judge want to see all the information pertaining to a case, he or she isn’t interested in the easy to find documents, he or she wants all the INFORMATION your organization has retained regarding the issue at hand.
“Sorry, we don’t have a way to get that information to you” is not a viable excuse.
Writing a check for huge fines doesn’t make anyone happy.
My favorite quote from the KnowlegeLake User Conference on March 2nd, 2014 was from Pamela Doyle, Director or Fujitsu Computer Products of America, “Not managing your content is like driving a car 85 miles per hour in a school zone because you can pay the ticket. Obviously you haven’t considered any of the other possible ramifications”
