Using Mover to migrate from Dropbox to OneDrive

Back in October 2019, Microsoft acquired mover.io, a cloud file migration company focusing on migrating content from other cloud sources (Dropbox, Box, Google, …) into the Microsoft cloud (Office 365, Azure). And while I was strongly involved in a lot of migrations over the past few years, I decided not to check this out in detail as I was working with too many other things (Teams/OneDrive adoption, PowerApps, …). But Details

Retrieving an item’s version history and changes with PnP PowerShell

Just a few days I wrote that ” it’s been MONTHS since I last ran a PowerShell script!” – and yesterday I not only had to run a script, but create it first. Luckily I still remembered how to use some of the PnP PowerShell cmdlets (though I have to confess, I forgot some syntax), and got the script working within a very short time. Not a surprise, really, as Details

It’s been a while… What’s next?

Well, it’s been a while since I wrote something here. As I changed my job in April last year, I also had a change in job scope – away from daily operational work (it’s been MONTHS since I last ran a PowerShell script!), on to more project and strategy focused activities. A good amount of the content on my blog originated from this daily work (scripts, how to do xzy, Details

Creating a consolidated calendar and To-Do tasks view in PowerApps

Update 22/7/2019: Loryan has published his article, where he explains in more detail what he wants to achieve, and which other things he tried. Check it out here: https://www.loryanstrant.com/2019/07/22/giving-yourself-a-clear-view-to-focus-on-your-day/ A couple of days ago, I saw the following question from fellow Office 365 MVP Loryan Strant: His goal was to have a combined view of his (Office 365) calendar’s entries and his To-Do items for the current day, so that Details

Scheduling Twitter Content with Microsoft Flow Part 2 – Images

Back in February I wrote a blog post on how to schedule Twitter content with Microsoft Flow and SharePoint. This was quite well received, and I’ve had a few discussions with various people, who tried it themselves. One of those is fellow MVP Luise Freese (Twitter, Medium) (extremely passionate & sketchnote artist extraordinaire), who used my instructions and replicated the setup. And as I saw recently and also discussed with Details

Study Guide – MS-301 Deploying SharePoint Server Hybrid

Update 13 May 2019: In case I find other good study guides online, I’ll link to them from here,Here’s another study guide by fellow MVP Becky Bertram. While a good number of links are the same for both our guides, she also linked to a few other resources, so check it out:http://www.savvytechnicalsolutions.com/educational-resources/exam-study-guides/exam-ms-301-study-guide/ Back in February, I took the new MS-301 Deploying SharePoint Server Hybrid exam (besides the MS-300, for which Details

Dynamic Country Maps in PowerApps

Today I stumbled upon an older, but wonderful article about how you can use SVGs (Scalable Vector Graphics) within PowerApps, and how you can modify them dynamically for custom visualizations: Advanced PowerApps visualizations with dynamic SVG’s. This made me think about other potential use cases, and I decided to check if I can build a reusable component that displays a World Map and allows to highlight countries with different colours.

Updating SharePoint Online List Icons with PowerShell

During a recent migration from on-premises SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online, we noticed that some of the migrated lists did not use the most recent icons, but rather older ones (from SharePoint 2007 or 2010, I can’t remember whether there was a difference between these two). For example, the following screenshot shows that all lists except for Tasks use the current icon set: The question was, can something be done Details

Scheduling Twitter Content with Microsoft Flow

Update May 2019: A follow up post with additional information has been published. Two years ago, I wrote a blog post about how you can schedule Twitter content with Azure Functions. I used Azure Table Storage to store relevant content that I want to get published, and Azure Functions to query it periodically to check if anything needs to get posted to Twitter. Today, I thought I should finally check Details
