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.

It’s only a start.

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”
Here’s some magic for you. If you add an out of the box style to a view of an App (list or library) the links to the views disappear. We are not talking custom code here. We’re talking about selecting a view style from the Style drop-down.
View with no Style added.
Links to additional views are missing.
