Helpdesk software is a basic part of practically any contemporary IT environment. As a rule, helpdesk solutions are intended to provide the customer/employee or other end-user with appropriate interactive support (technical, sales, etc.) related to the company's products and services. The main point of a helpdesk is to troubleshoot problems using a formal procedure for user requests creation, management and resolution.
MetaVis released a new version of its MetaVis Backup for SharePoint software designed for small and medium sized-businesses and power users. It allows users to quickly and affordably backup Office 365 SharePoint and restore content while retaining version history and metadata.
Metalogix Content Matrix is a multi-purpose content migration and consolidation tool which can connect to and move data into SharePoint from a number of sources: other SharePoint farms, file shares, websites, blogs, Exchange public folders, PSTs and eRoom. You can get a list of all the supported targets and sources on Metalogix's Tech Specs web page. The express version, Content Matrix Migration Express, however, supports only SharePoint, files share and public folder sources.
We at SharePoint Reviews are proud to have one full conference pass for SharePoint Summit 2013 in Vancouver to giveaway to our readers. With more than 60 sessions and a beautiful location that is perfect for late fall (October 28 - 29), you will enjoy the learning, networking, and a break from work. And take a day for a bit of sightseeing.
Thought this is now a mature event, entering its seventh year, for the first time, SharePoint Summit is coming to Vancouver. Year after year, the event has seen 25% annual growth and become the top professional gathering in the SharePoint space. This exclusive training and networking event is the only one of its kind in Canada.
I almost overlooked this gem of a course in the pack of 57 SharePoint Courses on Pluralsight.com. The title sounded similar to at least four other courses in the SharePoint Curriculum on Pluralsight.com. I’m glad I didn’t and chose instead to review it in depth.
It is hard in the midst of so many good courses to keep them all differentiated. At this time, Pluralsight lacks a personal history navigation interface: one where you can tell at a glance the courses taken and the current state of your progress in a given course (Hint! Hint! Pluralsight!). Yes, there is a “Your history and bookmarks” displayed under your login name - but it only bookmarks the last 10 courses you’ve visited - barely a month’s worth for some of us more avid users!

SharePoint Summit (mid-may 2013) is the second technology conference I’ve attended in my native town of Toronto. Most, if not all, conferences I’ve attended have been in the US in places such as Los Angeles, Anaheim, Seattle, Orlando, Boston and, most recently, Vegas in 2012. Toronto is a great venue for a conference, especially if your able to rent a car and explore the area outside the city such as Muskoka for its rugged beauty and Niagara for its wineries and the falls.
The corporate workplace has become a diverse mobile device environment mainly driven by the growing number of mobile professionals and demand for newer devices with improved user interface, applications, speed and cool factor. Core to this demand is employee mobility and the expectation for anywhere and anytime access to information, people, applications and communications to support increased demand for productivity and customer responsiveness.
SharePoint Column/View Permission, an add-on from BoostSolutions (formerly SharePointBoost), provides functionality that many SharePoint Admins sorely miss: hidden/read-only columns in lists, hidden/read-only views, setting default views per user or group, etc.
The installation installs a "SharePointBoost Software" section in Central Administration which contains a "License Management Center" and a Site Collection level feature that adds two items to the list and document library settings pages:
