Presentation: Using SharePoint Online for your web site, it’s more than just SharePoint

This past weekend I had the privilege, no, the honor to present at the 2nd SharePoint Saturday in Connecticut. It was a great day! I learned some new stuff, as well as got to meet some other great speakers from our community.

I was able to present my talk on using SharePoint Online for your website, and discuss what else you need to do to get your web site up to snuff. Below is my presentation deck.

Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Connecticut, Nov 8th

I am very pleased to share that I’m speaking at SharePoint Saturday in Connecticut, on November 8th! More details: http://www.spsevents.org/city/ct/ct2014

In my session we’ll be disussiong Using SharePoint Online for your web site, it’s more than just SharePoint. Using SharePoint Online is a great idea for most companies in need of a web site. SPO provides a lot of capabilities and can be setup relatively easy. However, your web site is more than SharePoint, more than something hosted on a server, it is something that needs your legitimate attention around search engine optimization, multi-browser support, mobilility and performance. David will walk through additional considerations, after you have your SPO site setup, that you need to know to have a successful web site on your Office 365 tenant.

These events are awesome, completely free, and where you can learn a ton! I highly recommend attending if you can make it! Hope to see you there!

Bringing SharePoint Public: Using SharePoint Online for your web site

I am very pleased to share that I will be presenting at this month’s Boston Office 365 user group, on August 21st.

I will be sharing about using SharePoint Online public website, which you get with your Office 365 tenant, to host your web site. We’ll cover some techie stuff but I will mostly cover the more important aspects of a public web site, like search engine optimization, mobility, performance and more.

More details on the Boston Office 365 User Group web site. Hope to see you there!

New to Office 365 SharePoint – Open This Link On A Phone

I found a new update on Office 365 today! This comes as a surprise since it wasn’t mentioned anywhere else yet, even in the message center (see my other post on 2 other recent Office 365 updates, one of which I have not seen yet). I’ve confirmed this update is available in another tenant, not just ours.

This update provides you a QR code to scan with your phone, and in turn access the document. Check it out:

Click the … for a document, and to the right of the link should be a wee little phone icon (I’m surprised I noticed it this morning):

sendtophone

After that gets clicked, a new window opens (which to me looks a little crude):

qr

Then I scan that with my phone and it actually works!ihpone

So, cool that there’s a nice new feature, sad that they didn’t warn us earlier?

But why?

The topic came up over on Fabian Williams blog, and it came up with my colleagues when I first found this. Fabian points out two great reasons for the QR code. Another way I think I would use this is to scan it with my iPad and load the doc on there, prior to walking into a meeting or something. Much faster than navigating to it on the iPad, or emailing myself a link.

Also, this is available on the SharePoint Online public web site as well, which has more of a use case than on a private site I would imagine. Giving your potential customers an easy way to get to your files! Pretty sweet.
