SharePoint Modern Web Parts series

I’ve been writing a new series of blog posts on the Lightning Tools site, as part of my Technical Evangelist role. It’s a detailed look at each of the built-in web parts available for modern SharePoint pages in SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2019. For example, today’s post was about date-related web parts: Events, Group Calendar,…

The Content Type Hub in SharePoint Online

Certainly the most successful post on my blog has been one I wrote in November 2016, about how to access and use the Content Type Hub in SharePoint Online. More popular than Wairere Falls Farm Cottage, better selling than Planner Notifications, and more controversial than In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit. 😉…
