Use list formatting samples to enhance your SharePoint Lists & Libraries

SharePoint Online has come a long way visually from the old days, and also from an “out-of-the-box” functionality point of view. A lot of things don’t require organisations to code or script to get something decent. BUT, we also have fantastic contributions from the Community with List Formatting samples! And that’s what we’re going to look at today! So… Do you want your SharePoint lists and libraries to look better? Yes?

Copy or Move files (not folders) to another library or Site using PowerShell

In today’s post, we’ll have a look at something that could potentially be your mini “re-organisation / migration” project. We’ll see how to copy or move files to another location, either on the same site but different library, or a completely different site. Starting Point Let’s have a look first at our current (dummy) structure. We have SitePnP1 where we’ll use the default Documents document library. Inside this library, we have a folder called Folder1 with files inside (nested files).

Find missing metadata in SharePoint using PowerShell

Did you know that fields in SharePoint Online set as “required” are not so… required anymore? It may be a pain for some, but they are now used as ‘guidance’ with a yellow background color instead and other signs like the red dot in the View.

Check if SharePoint site is connected to a Microsoft Teams with PowerShell

First post of 2021, and in this brief post, we’re going to see how we can check if our SharePoint Online sites have a Microsoft Teams team associated to it. Why is it brief?

Change specific users OneDrive For Business quotas using PowerShell

It may be useful to allocate specific users with specific OneDrive for Business storage quotas. But we may be faced with some challenges trying to achieve that… In this blog post, we’ll use a .csv file containing the users we wish to change the quota for, as well as adding some error handling to our script to manage the outcomes 🧐 And to top it off, we’ll export the “users not found” so you’re not in the dark when closing your PowerShell console!
