Office 365

FIXED – SharePoint Online missing Quick Edit

While troubleshooting OneDrive I noticed an end user missing the “Quick edit” toolbar button.  The fix was to update Document Library view to display  a custom column so that we have data which can be edited.  The default view with only system read-only columns does not support “Quick edit.”

Cheers!

  • Document Library (View) > Modify View > Add a custom column > OK

FIXED – SharePoint Online missing Sync button

While troubleshooting OneDrive I noticed an end user missing the “Sync” toolbar button.  The fix was to update Document Library settings to display “Sync” so that we could connect and take the Document Library offline.   After clicking “Sync” we were able to connect to the OneDrive desktop client and download all files.

Cheers!

Office 365 – Hybrid Team Site Redirect AAM

Migrating team sites to Office 365?  Worried about broken links?  Check this out.

Recently I found a helpful STSADM trick that provides HTTP redirection for hybrid SharePoint farms moving team sites into the Office 365 cloud.   As we migrate sites and remove from the source farm on-premise users will see 404 Page Not Found when open old URLs.

However, we can use STSADM to provide a “<RedirectUrl>” Alternate Access Mapping (AAM) property on the source SharePoint Web Application (http://portal/*) which redirects user traffic to a destination Office 365 Tenant (ex:  https://tenant.sharepoint.com/*)

If you are gradually moving team sites into the cloud with third party tools (ShareGate, Metalogix, DocAve, etc.) this trick is invaluable to preserve a smooth user experience where old links will seamlessly redirect to Office 365 team sites in the cloud.  Cheers!
