One thing that is getting a lot of attention in SharePoint 2010, is the use of PowerShell.  It’s too cool and you really have a lot of power (no pun intended) to automate just about anything in SharePoint.  In fact Kyle Kelin ( @spkyle ) are...
I was working on updating my Search demo for #spshou and my BCS search results were really ugly.  I didn’t have a default action specified on my search results, nor did I have a profile page, so instead the search results would give me the BDC protocol...
When I was mapping some managed properties from one of my Content Sources using the BCS, I noticed that the crawled properties were named slightly different in SharePoint 2010.  I thought this was worth a quick note, so here we are.  In MOSS...
We had a great turnout last night for my talk on How the SharePoint 2010 Business Connectivity Services will change your life.  The talk went quite well despite the long wait times in SharePoint Designer 2010. :-)  I really enjoyed giving this...
Lots of things have changed in Enterprise Search and the CoreResultsWebPart is no exception.  Of course, I’ve already mentioned that you can override certain methods now to affect how queries execute.  A number of options have moved around and...
I had the honor of being the first speaker at the new OKC SharePoint Users Group ( OKCSUG ) last night.  Wendy Schopf did a great job organizing the location and event and there was a pretty decent turnout.  I’m very excited to see the SharePoint...
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...
One common thing people have asked for in the MSDN Search Forums a lot (besides the obvious things like wildcard search) is the ability to get results that contain just documents.  In this case, people just want documents, no list items or folders...
You might have seen my last post on People Search and were so excited to try it out only to find that you only have a Basic Search Center template available or the search center you have already created doesn’t have a People tab.  By default, on...
Maybe you hadn’t noticed, but talking about Search is my favorite topic in SharePoint (with ECM closely following it). :)  This is why I am so excited about the new features we are seeing in Enterprise Search.  Wildcards and built in refinement...
Ok, so the title may be overly dramatic, but the BCS is really freaking cool now.  With SharePoint 2010 just around the corner, now is the time to start learning how you can leverage it.  I’ll be talking about the Business Connectivity Services...
I’ve been talking a lot about external lists lately as you may know.  They are so easy to create with SharePoint Designer, but you wouldn’t really deploy them to production that way would you?  Of course not!  We need a feature.  At...
Let’s face it.  Nowadays, management absolutely loves BI.  Especially when there are lots of pretty charts and graphs.  The thing is I’m not a BI guy.  Cubes scare me to death.  Luckily, there is the new snazzy Chart Web Part...
If you are already familiar with SharePoint 2010, you already know how easy it is to build and deploy a web part now.  However, this post is for those that don’t keep up with SharePoint as some of us do and may not realize how the development experience...
Office Web Apps is one of my favorite new parts of SharePoint 2010, but there are a number of steps you need to follow to ensure that they actually work.  To start with, be sure and download the Installation guide and run any scripts mentioned in...
