Going to discuss Office 365 Taxonomy and OneDrive for Business at SharePoint Saturday Paris

SPS ParisThis week I am off to Paris with my little family, and on Saturday I will enjoy spending my day with the French SharePoint community and presenting my views and case study of using OneDrive for Business in Office365. I will be presenting [en Français] which I have not done for years, so be sure to hear some weird “fran-glais” as the technical terms are all in english for me.

The title was actually “Shall we forget about taxonomy with Office 365?” which refers to the fact that OneDrive for Business allows users to store a crazy-full amount of files on the cloud and the question that stands: what to do with all this ? What about my team sites, department sites, organised libraries with metadata that I have been telling and training my users to maintain for years ?
Do I have to forget everything I learnt ?

See you on Saturday to see how some of my clients are managing this question!
À Samedi pour voir comment certain de mes clients gèrent cette problématique d’entreprise!

Our session is at 10:30 so come and learn about the latest BI Reports Tools in Excel that will make you re-think about Excel, and see how we can expose those reports into SharePoint and Office365 in minutes.

If you see me around, please stop me and say Hi !  / Bonjour ! 🙂 (click my profile to see what I look like 😉

PowerBI price model revealed

January 16, 2014 Leave a comment

The pricing of the Business Intelligence on the Cloud (Office365) #PowerBI that we demonstrated a few months ago has now been revealed : http://bit.ly/1ctzceg.

Only US pricing for now.

With 3 licence models to choose  and a price per user, it is fair to say that if you have 1 or 2 “main BI developers” you just need 1-2 licences and all users will be able to see your beautiful BI.

PowerBI Pricing

But be wary looking at the prices as explained here by ZDNet Mary JoFoley:

Andrew Brust, founder of Blue Badge Insights (and “Big on Data” blogger on ZDNet), was a bit less bullish on the Power BI pricing.

“The ‘full boat’ package of Power BI + Office ProPlus is $624/user/year, which is almost exactly 25% more than Tableau Online, at $500/year. Even the Standalone package is $480/user/year which is only a little less than Tableau,” Brust said.

On a side note, there are some really cool PowerBI examples taking part of the PowerBI Contestbeing submitted so keep an eye on the line-up (interestingly on Facebook, not Yammer or Office365 site : link here). Last submission was 15/01/14 and final judging : 01/03/14.

check out this short video “Ivonne’s story” or how to show-off some BI in a few minutes and make someone’s day.

Sharepoint 2013 “mark task complete”

December 5, 2013 Leave a comment

A great new feature in 2013 is the ability for a user to “mark task complete” straight from the task list without having to edit the item and click.

Screenshot below illustrates what this is

task

The issue I had today is that -somehow- the column to tick that task was actually not showing anymore from the task views. The list is definitely a Tasks list but the content type although originally inheriting from the out-of-the-box Task parent Site Collection CT has some custom columns in the site Content Type level.

Cause of issue (why the column was gone): not found yet, may be the “completed” column was edited by a user with design rights, but the formula inside was correct.

Solution: that’s the bad news.

  • Re-adding the column again didn’t work as it would not show the column as a Check Box magically but as a value “Yes/No” .. not useful.
  • Recreating the view and making it exactly like an out-of-the-box task view did not work, same as above.
  • Only solution was to re-create the list fully, and re-add the Custom Task Content Type, then remove the default “Task” Content Type. Once done task can be copy across if needed, as long as there no workflow in progress users will not be disturb as you may even change the URL to the original list later on.

Not a great finding on this feature I am afraid, but since nothing came up on a quick internet search I thought I would share it.

Have you ever wondered how to re-use this “mark as complete” in a fully customised list (not tasks App originally) ? One would think it’s the whole point of having such column, to be able to re-use it somewhere else, right. I could not.

Anyone  ?

Slides from Sharepoint Saturday UK co-presentation on Sharepoint Integration and BI

November 11, 2013 Leave a comment

My friend and Sharepoint Architect Ben and I had a really good time presenting this session last Saturday.

With an ambitious presentation title the slides I just uploaded were used to decrypt that title before getting onto a Live Demo of CRM 2013 and Sharepoint 2013 integration using BCS, OData and WebServices. Then we moved on to “what to do with that data”, and created some interactive BI tables, charts and maps (flat) in Excel PowerView and the newly released PowerMaps (3D maps), to finally publish them onto Sharepoint on-premise in a PowerView Libraries and to Office365 in a PowerBI library (beta).

In those slides you can get access to our Office365 demo of PowerBI and Powermaps , just make sure you log in before opening PowerBI link on the left of this site, as PowerBI doesn’t work yet for anonymous users. (our demo site will be available only before 20th Nov.13)

Am speaking at #SPSUK next week

November 2, 2013 Leave a comment

Just a quick post since I forgot to mention that I will be speaking at SharePoint Saturday UK next week, this is the 9th November and in the middle of Leicestershire (I had to check on Google Maps myself again).

To make the session a bit more lively I will be presenting with my friend and Sharepoint Architect Ben Ahmed the latest in Business Intelligence and open data stream from Enterprise Systems such as CRM.
Anything that has “power” prefixed is on the menu: PowerQuery, PowerPivot, PowerView and even PowerMaps 3D). A very exciting subject to make boring data actually beautiful and interesting in just a few clicks !

SharePoint Saturday is usually a great day where subject-matters people sacrifice one family day to learn and socialise with others, this one is going to be really cool as we are now getting the benefits of months of real business stories of SharePoint 2013 and Office 365.

More info about the event here http://lanyrd.com/2013/spsuk.

Don’t be fooled by InfoPath login prompt

October 18, 2013 Leave a comment

A short sharing since I was amazed of the quality of feedback I received today from InfoPath and could have spent hours on this.

Steps:

  1. Create an infopath form (here 2013, but may be the same in previous versions as it hasn’t moved that much at all since 2007)
  2. Publish it to Sharepoint (2013) as a Content Type
  3. Bang ! Infopath prompts for a login/password for the Webs.asmx web service
  4. Infopath publish error
  5. Entering any login still fails.

After a bit of thinking I went back a few step on that Publishing dialog box and noticed that I pasted some text that my client wanted to see displayed and it was just that: InfoPath didn’t like to transform the Description of the form or Sharepoint refused it because some characters were incorrectly formatted.

Avoid characters

So don’t be fooled by InfoPath / Sharepoint, the error doesn’t always lays where you think it is.
