Legacy Public Folder Coexistence in Multi-Site Hybrid Deployments

Those of you familiar with public folders know how much of a pain they can be. Microsoft has made promises to do away with them time and time again, yet they are still around and as painful as they have always been. Understandably, it is difficult to do away with support for a feature that […]

Sitecore Powershell – Add rendering to item

The Sitecore Powershell Module has once again come to the rescue to save me a lot of time in a recent update. We made an update to a left navigation component for mobile views in our responsive site.

Sitecore PowerShell Extensions Pt.1: The What and the Wow

I still cannot believe that there are Sitecore developers out there that are still not using Sitecore Powershell Extensions.

These aren’t technology catches, but rather related to the SDK and tooling support surrounding the Azure Service Bus features. Even though Azure Service Bus has been around almost since the beginning, for years, it […]

Office 365 – Script to Perform Message Trace By Subject

Just a quick post today on a recent script I had to put together. The message trace feature within Exchange Online works pretty well but can be a challenge if you want to search based on a particular email subject. In a scenario where you want to know who received an email or a set […]

Office 365 – Script To Determine Exchange Online Mailbox Location

When you move your mailboxes to the cloud, there are some details that you lose a little bit of insight into. While an acceptable answer to “where are my mailboxes” might be “the cloud”, I was curious as to how distributed they are. We know that an Office 365 tenant is limited to a single […]
