There are two jobs, User Profile to SharePoint Quick Sync and User Profile to SharePoint Full Sync, that synchronize the User Profile database information with the UIL. Sometimes this stops working (properly) and in that case you need to run: stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases 0 stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 0 The first command will list Content ...

Active Directory Import is similar to the Profile import mechanism we had back in SharePoint Server 2007. It's an awful lot easier and quicker to configure than "SharePoint Profile Synchronisation", AKA "User Profile Synchronisation Service" (in services on server) AKA ForeFront Identity Manager (FIM) for SharePoint Server 2010. Enabling AD ...

No, but the alternative is to go to the library and go into the Library Settings. From there go to the Advanced Settings and scroll down to Offline Client Availability. Set this to No and click OK. This will block all users from being able to sync that particular library.

You can create a calendar in SharePoint and apply an e-mail adress to the list of the calendar. You can send your meeting requests to the calendar list email adress (as attendee). For each meeting, an item is created, which is displayed on the calendar.

Why the code solutions? Use the native SP2010 document routing possibilities. Define an external Send to location on your source web app (in central admin), point it to the external site (web service url is something like http://destinationsiteurl/_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx), set the file action to either copy or move (depending on your needs). Then, in ...

If you do not have Exchange 2013, the solution is to deactivate the Farm Feature "Farm Level Exchange Task Sync".

You place a List-WebPart on a page and choose the view that it should use from the drop down menu. Now your WebPart obtains a copy of the list view that you selected. This will remain constant even if you modify the original view in the list itself. So, the behaviour you have described in your question is standard SharePoint behavior: List view changes are ...

I ran into the same issue, user account was a farm admin, local machine administrator, had local run as rights on the server, cleared the SP cache, pretty much everything you tried I had tried. I found out that the April 2014 CU contained a fix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2760265) where the User Profile Syncrhonisation service will not run when using ...

You can use the jQuery's when to get data as below: function SPData() { function getJsonDataAsync(url) { // returning the $.ajax object is what makes the next part work... return $.ajax({ url: url, method: "GET", contentType: "application/json", headers: { accept: "...

As mentioned, you will need to use either Visual Studio for this workflow scenario, or implement a Event Receiver in the document library that will fire whenever item is added or updated. In both cases the program code would run after item has been added/updated and the context of the workflow/event receiver will contain the document in question (or at ...

Microsoft has added an article on how to Reset profile synchronization using powershell Maintain user profile synchronization settings in SharePoint Server 2013 To get the User Profile Service application object, type the following command: $upa = Get-spserviceapplication <identity> To view the users and groups to delete, type the following command: ...

This sounds like 'Replicating Directory Changes' permissions was not appropriately applied to your sync account. I aggree with Seb, you should use the Harbar guide.

Yup you can get content type of item using following code, public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { SPList list = properties.List; string contentTypeName = properties.AfterProperties["ContentType"].ToString(); SPContentType contentType = list.ContentTypes[contentTypeName]; } For more information check this link out....

Unfortunately this is by design. When you get to Exchange 2013, you will have the ultimate experience of aggregration of all tasks across SharePoint and Exchange. With the creation of the cross farm aggregatinon of tasks to the newsfeed, the connecting to outlook feature was taken away. Once you are on Exchange 2013 that aggregration feature will work in ...

Not everything can be synchronized, Site Pages and even the Pages library cannot be synched, presumably because the file system might not know how to deal with these specialized libraries.

no i don't think there is a codeless solution to this.. you most likely will have to do this via custom code. You could create an console application which checks for files in the local folder, and if they do upload it to SharePoint and then set this application as Windows Scheduled Task with an Interval of 1min. Another option would be implementing it ...

Microsoft now suggests that you use Access to manipulate SharePoint Lists, but it has issues when you use multiple formats in the same list. It works fine if don't have memo fields, I have found.

Without the use of AD the only way is to write an application to synchronise them for you. I would set up a VM with active directory on, to handle this, so you have it there, just for this period, I really hope this is possible for you. The good news is the code for doing this as an application would be almost identical on 2007/2010 so a windows form ...

You need to use BCS(BCS can only be used for property augmentation). You have to do follow things creating external content types from data in Microsoft SQL Server tables creating synchronization connections mapping user profile properties Run Full Synchronization. Please follow this video from MSFT, to complete task. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...

You can try also some 3-rd party tools for it. Ex. from VirtoSoftware - http://www.virtosoftware.com/sharepoint/exchange-group-calendar-web-part or from Amrein - http://www.amrein.com/apps/page.asp?Q=5778 Using these web parts you'll be able to synchronize your Exchange Calendar and SharePoint Calendar. And this configuring will work in two-ways. You can ...

Events ending by –ing are synchronous events (before): ItemAdding, ItemUpdating, ItemDeleting. Event handlers defined for these events are executed before the operation is executed on the content database. Asynchronous events are the events that end by –ed (after): ItemAdded, ItemUpdated, ItemDeleted. Event handlers for these events are executed ...

You specify you want this OOTB, but this is not possible out of the box since 2007, as Microsoft deprecated this feature (ability to sync bi-directionnaly a SharePoint list with an Excel file). OOTB Options include creating a new SP list from an Excel file and exporting a list to an Excel file. To keep both data sets up to date, you need a third party tool ...

There is no way to have two-way sync out of the box (OOTB) between Excel and a SharePoint List as Microsoft deprecated this feature 10 years ago. OOTB Options include creating a new SP list from an Excel file and exporting a list to an Excel file. To have bi-directional sync, you need a third party tool such as SharePoint List Synchronizer. Disclaimer: this ...

Microsoft Flow could be a good tool to export information from multiple sources like an Azure SQL database. But you should check Azure Functions and Office Graph API as well. This couldn't be a solution if you are thinking in a non code solution but I think it could be great because of all the possibilities that opens up for logging, tracing, checking and so ...

Using an AD security group to maintain your testers may be of some value. Place testers in AD group, give the group permissions in SP. when testers change, change the group in AD therefore allowing sync between the two areas they need access to. only catch is if the testers need different perms within SharePoint (contribute, full control etc..) in which ...

I'm a big fan of UPS, but that's because of its social aspects and features you can enable with my sites. There is something nice about dynamically generated org charts, the ability to follow people, and having a central store of profile info rather that having to rely on the user information list. It's also nice to be able to push some of the user ...
