Managed Metadata Hierarchy Breadcrumb

In my investigations of some of the new features of SharePoint 2010, I was interested to learn how I could programmatically walk the tree of a managed metadata hierarchy. This article walks through a program that will create a breadcrumb from a managed metadata hierarchy. The first thing we need to do is to create […]

iPhone SharePoint App Comparison

I’m going to show a couple of free iPhone apps that access SharePoint 2010. The first SharePoint iPhone Client is Moshare from Moprise (green theme) and the second is iShare from Spyk Software (orange theme). Let’s see how they stack up. First take a look at the launch icons. I’m not sure what the Moshare […]

Testing the iPad

I thought I’d share a couple of thoughts on using SharePoint 2010 on the iPad. The iPad is not capable of displaying Silverlight or Flash content. It seems that when a page is rendering, I can scroll but once it’s done rendering and I let go, it jumps to the top and won’t scroll again. […]

FAST Search for SharePoint 2010 and Windows Firewall

I thought I would add this note about doing the configuration of FAST Search for SharePoint 2010. It seems that the typical scenario is to turn off Windows Firewall within the enterprise. More than one client I have been at has had it turned off. When I was ready to hit the configure button, I […]

Comparing Office Web Apps with Office Desktop 2010

I thought I’d share these images of Office Web Apps with the full version of the applications. The applications provide basic view and edit capabilities but for more advanced features you’ll want to open up the desktop version. I’m only displaying the Home tab but you can see the differences in the number of tab […]
