Steven, We did a similar migration last year with a large user base. The biggest challange was to get everyone acquainted with the new user interface. Before you start developing the training, it would be a great exercise to understand how your users use Share Point. Few of the questions you may ask:- 1. What is the most common use of your SharePoint ...

Having done this migration (and training) a few times now, It depends a lot on what your users are expected to do. Some of the changes for everyone: Browser dependence (less reliance on IE) Addition of the Ribbon, movement of almost all buttons into the ribbon. Social changes (if you didn't have mySites before and you do now which seems common) Changes ...

There are two things to consider. First you need to train them on how to continue to do the things they need to know in order to continue to do their jobs effectively, like uploading documents, adding list items, creating lists, etc. The process may be the same, but the visual difference could be confusing or the steps may have changed slightly. The second ...

solution 1 To resolve the web parts errors: Take a note the ID from the Pre-upgrade report: a96a608d-61e7-186c-8fbd-1cebfac7e602 Note: The ID represents the Web part type ID which is referenced within the Content database but the supporting files are not present on the server.

What about setting an "empty" loop? (i have tried with a comment on an useless workflow variable repeated for 10 k or 20 k depending on how long time I need, it worked fine)

Not recommeneded way of doing it but I do it this way. Open Command prompt, type "iisreset" as soon as you type it, go to folder and delete the dll. I used to do it on a demo environment, if you want to do it on production make sure you to have some downtime sorted first.

Sharepoint 2007 (MOSS) and Sharepoint 2010 are two different environment and for console or other application can't access both these application url from a single box. If you run your program from MOSS environment, you can access the sites that are in SP 2010 and vice versa. So you have to take help of sharepoint web services. Take a look at Migrate ...

SharePoint itself only "authorizes" account access so it has to be aware of the authentication source you use. In this case that is Active Directory. So any account you use must exist in Active Directory. The exception is if you have Anonymous access enabled - in which case SharePoint will grant access to any user or service requesting data from it. ...

I finally solved the issue, basically what I have done, i've created a feature folder in the features => like MyFeature/feature.xml. The next step I used stsadm to install the feature: stsadm -o installfeature -filename MyFeature\feature.xml And the final step, i used the Feature Admin Tool to delete this feature. Note: the feature XML you can define ...

Got around this by creating a new custom column, setting it to a formula and then referencing [Version Number] in the field. It now shows on all pages alongside the other custom columns.

You can also change the SPViewScope in C#: SPView view = list.Views["YourViewName"]; view.Scope = SPViewScope.RecursiveAll; //more ViewScopes are available view.Update()

Typical, spent days and days trying to resolve this, i post here and then manage to resolve it myself. After reading some Microsoft documentation it would seem all examples i've seen on the internet miss out one key thing, Inside the tag or tag for where you want the webpart to appear there needs to be the tag and then all of the above (minus the tag i ...

Same exception occurred in one of my organization's production SharePoint server and after simply recycling the app pool that host the web application and restarting the site from IIS Manager, I got this issue resolved. Only that web application and site must be recycled or restarted in which above exception is occurring.

I don't think it will work by adding the web part to the Schema.xml. Try using a feature receiver instead to create the web part and add it to the page with SPLimitedWebPartManager. See [MSDN: Add a WebPart to schema.xml][1] for example code.

Finally had some time to test it and here's the sad result from a Test-SPContenDatabase PowerShell command. It is not blocking of the upgrade, but the upgrade process upgrades all sites to an SP2010 look, so there's no way of keeping the V3 look. I've also tried to update the SPWeb's UIVersion field after the upgrade, but no luck with either PowerShell or ...

i think you can use the migrate content database approach. check this technet: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263299(v=office.12).aspx or i would recommend to buy a 3rd party tool to migration. As per my personal experience i would recommend ShareGate. http://en.share-gate.com/ OR there are several other tools available in market Tsunami ...

Retracting a WSP will not remove deployed web parts or deactivate site or web features. You can remove missing features using the FeatureAdmin tool: http://featureadmin.codeplex.com/ For the Web Parts you should be getting the filename in the logs (.dwp or .webpart). Then you can look all Site Collections and remove the file from the Web Part catalog ...

You could use SharePoint Designer and use a DataFormWebPart. Set it to show the value of the column "Wiki Content" (@WikiField) of the desired page. If you like coding, you can also use JavaScript to access the SharePoint Web Services and query your wiki library to retrieve the content.

My issue somehow resolved itself but here is what I did in case someone else is still having this problem. Reset IE 10 back to defaults. Made sure MS Access 2013 was installed. Used repair option from Control Panel for MS Office 2013 Rebooted PC Now the above did happen in order but over several days as I was trying to figure out how to solve this.

You would need either a C# application or a PowerShell script that would run as a scheduled task. The important thing is how to access each SPWeb in the site collection. I don't know enough about your requirements or your environment to make a guess about this. You might want to do it recursively for every site and sub-site in each site collection (something ...

The value of the category that you set in Outlook gets saved in a meta field in the SharePoint calendar item. By using the List web service GetListItems method, you can get hold of the category(ies) value by reading the field called ows_MetaInfo_Categories. The values get stored as a semi-colon separated string (eg. Category1; Category2), because a single ...

You will need to have permissions on the server in order to deploy the webpart. The web part dll needs to be deployed to GAC or bin folder of the web application. Also, safe control entries need to be added to the web.config file. All these thing make it necessary to have permissions on the SharePoint server.

My experience is with 2013, so that may make the information I'm sharing at least partially irrelevant. If I understand your question, you're looking for a programmatic way to access and update the category of a calendar item while it is at rest on the SharePoint server. A calendar is similar to any other list in SharePoint in that it's a row with defined ...
