Standard disclaimer – the ‘migratenotes’ posts come from a Notes Migration blog that I wrote from 2007-2010.  More Info ——- I’ve been quite disappointed in SharePoint’s mechanism for switching between views. A barely visible drop-down? Even if over time, SharePoint users might get used to that, our Notes Community won’t accept it. Not when they are used to hierarchical navigators that display categorized views. So as an alternative, I went into one of my lists, and added a content editor…

More Details on Hide-Whens

Standard disclaimer – the ‘migratenotes’ posts come from a Notes Migration blog that I wrote from 2007-2010.  More Info ——- I wanted to go over a bit more detail about ‘hide-whens’ in SharePoint: As I stated in the previous post, you can use a Custom List Web Part to pull your list item UI into XSL, giving you control of the UI, which in turn lets you hide elements using xsl:if.

Standard disclaimer – the ‘migratenotes’ posts come from a Notes Migration blog that I wrote from 2007-2010.  More Info ——- A few months back, I had stated that setting up a basic SharePoint environment really isn’t all that painful. And that is still true. However –  what I have found is that only basic dev or proof-of-concept environments actually stay that basic. We have about 2 dozen servers in our environment, for example.

Uninspired

Standard disclaimer – the ‘migratenotes’ posts come from a Notes Migration blog that I wrote from 2007-2010.  More Info ——- A little over a week ago I had 6 full posts I wanted to write, and was going to kick this blog back into high gear. So why did I lose my inspiration? A full week of literally babysitting the SharePoint environment, testing it every few hours, rebooting services and servers when they went down, just trying to keep it…
