Recently I came across the need to convert images to PDF. I was browsing the web to search for free tools, but I thought it would be a fun idea to just create my own tool for this. In the mean time I could dust off my PHP-skills, which have been lying around for years now.
The tool offers you the possibility to upload images from PC or smartphone/tablet, select some options (paper format, direction and margins) and to convert those images to a downloadable PDF.
When enabling the Teams license in Office 365, every member within the organisation can create Teams. To prevent uncontrolled growth of Teams, it is a best practice to disable the creation of Teams and put in place a provisioning engine instead.
What are citizen developers? Citizen developers are non-IT professionals that take business application development into their own hands. They utilize applications, productivity tools and low-code platforms to make up for a lack of programming languages.
In SharePoint Online, for a list or document library, it is possible to define default metadata values based on the folder where an item or document is added.
As with a lot of cases in SharePoint, the defaults are set on subfolders with inheritance. On every folder-level it is possible to break the inheritance and define other default values for your metadata.
In the example below we work with a Managed Metadata field, called customer, we need to default. This way our co-workers don’t need to specify the value everytime they create or upload a document to the document library.
There are two ways to make the magic happen. Through the user interface, and with Powershell.
With the Modern Libraries in SharePoint Online, getting a direct link – with a readable path – is not as straight forward as it was with the Classic Libraries. While the option is not there right before you, it is still possible to obtain such a link. In fact, there are even two.
In Sharegate, having the full license (!), it is possible to run PowerShell scripts. In this script we could read a CSV-file to bulk migrate document libraries, lists or sites.
This can speed up the migration time, since you would only need to specify the objects once in a simple CSV-file instead of manually going through every object one by one, which is very time consuming.
In this example, we will perform a bulk incremental update (only copy the item if it is newer in the source than the corresponding item at the destination) of some document libraries from an on premise environment to different Site Collections in SharePoint Online.
The reports can be found in Sharegate as well, through the “Migration reports” button in the Ribbon.
