Post to Newsfeed on behalf of another user (Server Object Model)

The below code will post to Newsfeed for any user account you specify.   Activity appears the same as if the user manually posted.   This could be helpful for populating Newsfeed from external activity, custom event receivers, workflow, and other developer sources.   Enjoy!

Custom Security Roles

Contributor is often too generic to match business needs.   Below are 4 custom security roles with more granular purpose.   Running the below PowerShell will create the roles (if missing) for a given web URL. 

Enjoy!

  • NoDelete = Contribute without delete
  • AddOnly  = Contribute without delete or edit
  • EditOnly = Contribute without add or delete
  • NoEdit   = Contribute without edit

 

Rename MySite “Blog” for findability

SharePoint names the blog created in a personal site “Blog.”  At scale this is confusing because everyone’s blog has exactly the same title (“Blog”).

The below PowerShell will rename to “{FirstName LastName} – Blog” for a more user friendly experience across search results, follow site recommendations, and site directory.

Cheers!
