TL;DR - Stay under 5,000 items for the entire library to get 100% of functionality In addition to the 30 million documents per library you also need to be aware of the limit of 5,000 items per "view". http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262787(v=office.15).aspx#ListLibrary This particular limit can be changed in on-premise but in SharePoint ...

Unfortunately there is no clean/ easy way to uninstall of SP, Because Services packs not only SharePoint Server but also upgrade the Database Schema.

I don't know your desired output format, but an example would be: <xsl:value-of select="ddwrt:FormatDateTime(@Created, 1033, 'MMMM d, yyyy')" /> This should still apply to 2013. Kyle links to some useful resources in this post, like MSDN and Heather Solomon.

=MID([Title], FIND(".", [Title])+1, LEN([Title])) You could also wrap it in an if so that it just shows nothing if there is no period =IF(ISNUMBER(FIND(".",[Title])),MID([Title],FIND(".",[Title])+1,LEN([Title])),"") Here is an MSDN page with a pretty comprehensive set of the 2010 calculated columns that I use: ...

Delete and re-create. And that has serious drawbacks. If this is on-premises, you can use the Export-SPWeb / Import-SPWeb cmdlets to preserve the data.

There are couple of ways to copy the List with all items.But with 500 Millions your options are very limited. You can Use one of these: Export List and Import list with new name Use the 3rd party tools i.e ShareGate, MetaLogix.

in theory: Maximum no of items including list item and document in a content database is 60 Million Maximum no of items a list can have is 30,000,000 per library i.e 30 million, so roughly you can have 2 million list in a site collection each list having 30,000,000 items from support perspective so you can 2 million list in one site in a ...

As Per my Experience InPlace upgrade without backward compatibility. But we did a little change to reduce the down time. We have tons of Content DB with more than 10TB of data. Here are the steps we followed. Install bits(SP) on all SharePoint server Now Run the Upgrade content-Database for each Content DB. Now Run the Config Wizard, one by one on all ...

Generally you want to go with approach #1. Running with backwards compatibility for long periods of time is not recommended, and does not actually "upgrade" your farm (it does not upgrade the schema on the databases, for example). Unless you have a very large farm in terms of number of servers, or have an unusual requirement to be able to leverage backwards ...

Before upgrading to SP1 in production, you should backup your farm. Backup each of the SQL databases and backup each server in the farm. There isn't a safe "undo" option for removing service packs except for restoring backups, etc.

I usually use JavaScript unless there is a specific reason not to: <script> location.replace("http://new.url.here/path/object.ext"); </script> It is near-immediate and replaces the page in history, so you don't have a loop set up if someone uses the back button.

This will give you the format 2013-2014, 2014-2015: =IF(MONTH(Created)>6,YEAR(Created)&"-"&YEAR(Created)+1,YEAR(Created)-1&"-"&YEAR(Created)) It takes MONTH>6, so you could adjust that parameter for fiscal start. And for FY 2014, FY 2015 etc, you could use this formula: =IF(MONTH(Created)>6,"FY "&YEAR(Created)+1,"FY ...

Agreed that this is by design. The Content Organizer is built upon the functionality from the Records Center in SharePoint 2010. The Record Center allowed users to send documents to another library/site that could then be managed by the Records Management Team. By design the user should not have permissions to this destination library. You would of course ...

SiteTitle is a Managed Property in search but it is not set to be "refinable" by default. Go to Central Admin > Service Applications > Search Service and then Search Schema.
