I had the pleasure of presenting a new search talk at SQL Saturday Baton Rouge.  For a SQL event, this one always brings a fair number of SharePoint users.  Attendees got to hear about how to improve their search experience thought implementation...
Quite some time ago, I wrote about how to set default column values using C#.  However, I find it useful to work with them using PowerShell quite often.  The reason being, I often use this as a utility to work set default column values on document...
Every organization wants better search results.  However, few have actually spent the time to create file plans, content types, and managed properties to make it happen.  SharePoint 2013 has a feature called entity extraction though that can...
For those of you familiar with SharePoint 2010, the content type hub is nothing new to you.  However, in SharePoint Online, the content type hub works a little differently.  The first thing to know is that a content type hub has been set up...
I’ve written a number of posts in the last couple of weeks about the new SharePoint features in the Visual Studio 11 developer preview.  These posts include publishing to SharePoint Online , Visual Web Parts , Silverlight Web Part , and the Content...
Visual Studio 11 introduces a new content type editor that you might find useful when building your next content type.  It starts with a SharePoint Project Item that you can pick from the New Item menu. From this screen, give your new content type...
I saw this question in the forums the other day, so I decided to see if it is possible to use SharePoint search to query just the contents of a document set.  It turns out that you can and it is quite easy.  Consider the following document set...
This post is long overdue, but better late than never.  I had a great time at SPTechCon 2011 in Boston.  I had the chance to meet a lot of people in person for the first time that I had only previously known through twitter.  I gave two...
As someone who focuses mostly on ECM and Search, I am a huge fan of the new Metadata Navigation feature on document libraries in SharePoint 2010.  It provides a great alternative to folders when it comes to navigating your document libraries. ...
When it comes to deploying SharePoint artifacts, I pretty much always insist on doing as much as possible using a feature and CAML as opposed to using the UI or writing code.  CAML is very possible and most people don’t realize how much you can do...
At Tulsa TechFest , I gave a talk about the various new ECM features available out of the box in SharePoint 2010.  One feature of particular interest to the crowd was average ratings.  I had lots of questions on it so I thought it was worth...
It’s hard to believe this is my fourth Tulsa TechFest.  It seemed like we just had the last one.  As always I had a good time.  I’m impressed that @davidlwalker was able to pull off such an event when he barely even lives here.  For...
The reason I write this post today is because my initial searches on the Internet provided me with nothing on the topic.  I was hoping to find a reference to the SDK but I didn’t have any luck.  What I want to do is set a default column value...
I can’t tell you how many SharePoint ECM projects I have seen where there has been a requirement to upload a document somewhere and then move it somewhere else based upon metadata or other criteria.  People have written a good amount of code in the...
Ah, don’t you love COMExceptions?  Recently, I was adding two new site columns to a list and encountered a whole slew of errors when trying to create new items in the list.  This is the error I got when I was trying to create a custom folder...
