No-code modern SharePoint site redirect

News link

In classic SharePoint sites, it was possible to redirect users to a different site using a few different approaches. However modern SharePoint sites are more restrictive (for good) and offer different features that require different approaches.
Fortunately, if you need to redirect users when they try to access the homepage of a specific site, this can be easily achieved using a simple no-code solution.

SharePoint folder filter SPFx extension

Jump to folder

In modern SharePoint libraries containing large collections of folders, it may be difficult to navigate your way around the folder hierarchy. The library loads batches of 30 folders as you scroll down the list, making it difficult to find a specific item.
Would it not be great if you could easily filter the collection of folders?

For example, if you configure default values in a folder, documents added to that folder will automatically inherit those field values. This functionality is great when you have a project that heavily relies on metadata. Especially if metadata should be inherited through multiple levels of information.

SharePoint on-prem – easily renew expired certificates

Certificates are my “kryptonite”…hate the pain of going back to an old project and the first thing I have to deal with in the development environment are expired certificates.

SharePoint doesn’t like expired certificates as some features will not work as expected, so you’d better renew the certificates before doing anything else.
