When you consider that in just three years the number of Americans who own a cell phone has jumped from 17 % in 2010 to 91% in 2013, the implications are incredible. And while smartphone users are increasing at a bit of a slower rate (up to 56 percent according to a recent Pew research poll), Americans continue to choose the smartphone for personal and professional purposes.
Recently I was tasked with creating a report for our PMO that showed information about all of our current projects and a stoplight status indicator on whether the project was on track or not. After doing some research online, I found out that I could create a calculated field based on a status and display a colored circle that will help executives quickly view the status of each project. I have created a tutorial to show the steps, so that you can create your own colored status field in SharePoint.
Though nothing public has been released on the subject of Apple’s next product designs and changes, just weeks after its latest releases of the iPhone 5c and 5s, rumors are circulating about the next generation of iPhones.
My current project is using SharePoint 2010 and InfoPath 2010 to collect specific business related data. The initial design had three different text boxes to collect a proper name, username and email. There is nothing wrong with this approach, but this specific form had 15 individuals that we needed to collect data for. The would be a lot of data entry. Why couldn’t we just enter a user name and bring back all of this data?
Performing some quick internet searches, there are many great articles that accomplish the desired results using a Web service call to GetUserProfileByName. These articles showed step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish the desired results, but they only demonstrated how to use this technique for the current user. Even though I needed the information for the current user, I also had a business requirement to retrieve the information for other individuals in the company based on their username. Hopefully the following article will help you use the Web service approach for any person listed within your People Picker (or text box).
Require the users of your InfoPath form to select at least three checkboxes (this could be any number). It doesn’t matter which ones are checked, just three of them.
What is required:
Recently, we had an interesting issue with an internal CRM report. While trying to set up a subscription in SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services), we got the following error:
What the heck does that even mean?
InfoPath allows you to designate a field as required several different ways. One of the easiest ways to designate that a field is required, is to look at the properties of the field. In the properties dialog, just simply check the “Cannot be blank” checkbox. This action will require the user to supply some data in the field. Visually it will also place a red asterisk in the control, to tell the user this field needs some data in it.
Recently, I had a user who was having a problem with Outlook 2013. Basically, they were trying to delete an old Contacts folder from Outlook that they no longer used. Every time they attempted to delete it, they got the following error message:
Cannot delete this folder. Right-click the folder, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions. Outlook is synchronizing local changes made to items in the folder. You cannot remove this folder until the synchronization with the server is complete.
Since the break room at the office is a shared space, things can get a little out of hand at times, but for the most part coworkers do their best to keep it in tip-top shape. Similar to having roommates and sharing a kitchen, there are a few things that definitely irritate others when things are done or not done while in the break room.
I have put together a list of things that seem to be the top 10 office break room pet peeves at our office.
As a Windows and Infrastructure Administrator, it can sometimes be difficult or complicated to manage all the various servers, applications, and the like on your network.
However, the days of running from server to server, or having 50 Remote Desktop Connection sessions open are long over. Here are 3 great – and often overlooked – server administration tools that Microsoft provides at no cost.
