If you are a developer working with the SharePoint app model and have
deployed a list, you might have noticed that the list settings button is
missing from the ribbon.
Now, you typically probably don’t want to adjust list settings inside an
app through the UI. However, it’s not uncommon that you want to look at
your list settings in the development process to confirm you did everything
right. For example, maybe you want to check the permissions on the list.
If you know the List Id, you can always just go directly to ListEdit.aspx,
but I find that’s a lot of work. Instead, I found the easiest way is go
to active the LIST ribbon and then click Modify View.
That will take you to a page where you can edit a view. However, it also
gives you a breadcrumb back to Settings.
You’ll now be on your list settings page.
This is a great way to manually set permissions on ... (more)

I’ve been running Windows 10 Technical Preview since it came out on October
1st. We’re now on our third build (Build 9879) so I thought I would share
my experience so far on my Surface Pro 3. With Windows 10, they have given
us access to builds earlier than we used to get in the past. As a result,
you are going to get to deal with different challenges with each build.
That’s just what you get when installing on an early release. We expect

I have been working with the new Office 365 Groups feature a little bit and I
wanted to see how I could surface them from a regular SharePoint Online
site. In my example today, I have created two public groups and three
My first thought was to use Search. Ultimately, I knew the file storage
behind groups was powered by a site collection. I just need to figure out
which WebTemplate was being used. You can see the name of the site
collection fairly easily by looking at one of the documents in search.
It’s simply stored at /sites/. You can see your G... (more)
With MOSS 2007, I often got asked what order do I install these solution
packages in. Oftentimes, it was critical that they get installed in a
particular order. With features, we have had the ability to set
dependencies, but we really didn’t have anything like that for solution
packages. Well, I haven’t heard people talking about this new feature
yet, but we can in fact set solution dependencies in the manifest.xml file.
The way it works is that it checks to see if a dependent solution has already
been deployed on your farm (or site collection for sandbox solutions).
