Product overview by Vlad Catrinescu – requested by QIPoint, but thoughts are my own.

As SharePoint is becoming the central hub of information and publishing in enterprises across the world, employees rely on it daily to find required information for their day to day job. After numerous migrations, organizational changes and URL changes, your SharePoint might have broken links, which can cause frustration among your employees. Those links can be everywhere in ASPX pages, quick launch navigation as well as directly inside documents. Scanning the thousands of documents and pages and testing every link is impossible, but luckily, some SharePoint third-party vendors created tools for us to make sure we find those links with just a click.

In this blog post we will talk about one of those tools by QIPoint called SharePoint Broken Link Manager. Before continuing, here are a few words directly from the SharePoint Broken Link Manager Website

QIPoint SharePoint Broken Link Manager Review

The SharePoint Broken Link Manager is a client side application, meaning that there is nothing you need to install on the SharePoint Server itself, and the application can be installed on any computer. This is great because there is less risk for your SharePoint Farm, and a department can decide to buy and use this tool, without affecting any other site other than the ones they have access to. The Installation is a simple Next, Next Finish, and once you finish installing it, you get to a dashboard similar to the one in the screenshot below. The first thing we will have to do is add the Site Collections we want to manage.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

The Site Collection Adding Process is pretty straightforward, and you simply need to specify the URL, Authentication method as well as Username and password.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

Once the site is added, it’s added for the whole “SharePoint Essential Toolkit” suite, which includes more than Broken Link Manager. In this review however, we will only focus on the Broken Link Manager tool. Simply Right Click on the site, and select “Broken Link Report”

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

A new tab will open, and you need to select the Scan Options, such as what items to scan, do you want to scan the List Item Attachments as well or not and more.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

A bit lower on the Scan Options, we can also select to Find and Replace certain links. This could be useful right after a Migration from “oldurl” to “newurl”. However on this first scan, I will simply scan and not replace anything.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

When replacing links, you also have the options to require versioning before replacing, as well as to preserve the important Author and Date. This is very important for all companies.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

After running the job, we get a report of all the links in our Site Collection, what the URL is, what the display value is, when it was last modified, as well as the Author of the item where that link was found. The level of detail included is awesome, and very useful.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

I love the fact that there is a lot of information in this report, however I think it could be a little more user friendly. As an IT Pro, I know what HTTP Status code 200, 503, 404 and they do help me know what is really happening, this might not also be valid for a SharePoint Intranet Manager without a more technical background. All the codes are explained in the user manual which helps, however I wish there was a view called “Broken Links” which only showed me the stuff needing fixing. I did filter on Error 503, and saw my two broken links.

I did find that there is an option you can select in the first page to ‘Only Show Broken Links’ in the report, this will then remove all valid ‘OK’ links and only show broken ones. Also, I discovered that I could drag and drop the HTTP Status Code column which would then group all the erroneous links in groups and also I could group by SharePoint Item Title, so then it was easier for me to locate the files and SharePoint Items that contain the broken links.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

Once you know the broken links, you can open them to validate it’s broken directly from the report, and you can also open the SharePoint item (page, document, list item, etc.) where it was found, directly from the report! This can be really useful for a fast check before fixing it.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

This is the reporting part of SharePoint Broken, now let’s look at how we automatically fix them. To test this, I have added links in the following locations:

  • ASPX Page
  • Link List
  • Word Document
  • PDF Document

In the Report Settings I have added the old value “oldhome” , and asked it to switch to “newhome”. If you just want to see what the change looks like, you can use the “Flag Only” check box, and that will show you in the report what it would have changed it to, but not actually change it.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

I will also select “Preserve Author and Date”, so it doesn’t mess up my company metadata.

The tool was able to replace my links, in all the locations, inside the SharePoint pages, as well as the documents, which is pretty amazing. Other cool features include being able to export reports both in Excel, as well as in a small standalone application offered by QIpoint that doesn’t require an install. You can also schedule the jobs to run every week for example, and email you the report.

SharePoint Broken Link Manager

Conclusion

In this blog post, we have reviewed the SharePoint Broken Link Manager tool, part of the SharePoint Essentials Toolkit by QIPoint. This tool is aimed at Site Owners who want to make sure their Sites do not have any broken links that can cause a loss in productivity and user frustration. The SharePoint Broken Link Manager tool is a client side application, meaning that it’s installed on a client computer, and not on the SharePoint Server, therefore making it easy for a Site Owner, or Department to purchase it, without affecting other sites in the SharePoint farm.

During the review, I found the QIPoint tool to have all the features I would expect, and all the features worked great. What I would have loved is a bit more user friendliness for less technical users on the broken link report. Having the HTTP Status code is very useful, however a view called for example “Broken Links” that includes a filter on HTTP 404, 503, etc… Out of the box would have been amazing!

Other than that report, I really see this tool as being extremely useful right after a migration, as well as running on a schedule to make sure your SharePoint links always get to the right information. If you’re looking for a way to find and fix your SharePoint Broken links, make sure you check SharePoint Broken Link Manager by QIPoint!

Product overview by Vlad Catrinescu – requested by Netwrix, but thoughts are my own.

With companies getting hacked every day, security is becoming a more and more important part of every IT department. An important part is being able to know what happens in all your systems and be able to monitor it for security flaws. While every product has a way of logging information, it’s impractical to analyze each log individually, especially when you have hundreds, or even thousands of different servers, systems and applications to monitor. This is where an enterprise user activity monitoring can come in handy. In this blog, we will talk about Netwrix Auditor, a visibility and governance platform that that enables
control over changes, configurations and access in hybrid cloud IT environments, in most of the Microsoft Stack such as SharePoint, Exchange, SQL, Windows Server, File Shares, AD and Office 365.

As we will focus mostly on the SharePoint features of Netwrix Auditor, here is an introduction about the product directly from the Netwrix Auditor site.

 

 

Gain deep insight into all changes that impact compliance, security and availability across your SharePoint sites, including changes to farm configuration; changes to security, from the farm level down to single document permissions; and the creation, deletion and modification of any SharePoint content.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint Review

The Netwrix Auditor platform comes split in two. You have the Administrator Console in which you can define what systems you want to connect to as well as the credentials to connect to those systems.

To connect to a SharePoint Farm, you will need to connect to the SharePoint Central Admin site, and specify an account that has the required rights!

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

After the Admin Part is setup, you can consume all the auditing from a Netwrix Client. And I think the way they built it is very smart, because the Netwrix Auditor Client can be installed on an unlimited number of computers, and you can delegate access to audit data to different teams when they need it. For example you could give access to a team doing a Compliance Report. The Netwrix Auditor client start screen looks like the screenshot below, and it provides you with a quick access to the Overview dashboards for each System.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

The SharePoint Overview dashboard gives you a quick glance at how many changes were done on your SharePoint Farm(s), on what Site Collections as well as what types of items were changed.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

The overview dashboard can be useful to present to a Manager, and even measure adoption. They are pretty laconic, but if you need more details, you can get them by clicking any specific graph in the dashboard. Luckily, Netwrix has a dozen out-of-the-box SharePoint reports that you can easily run to get more detailed information.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

Some of the ones I liked most are finding all the SharePoint Changes done by a certain SharePoint User. Being able to run this report across multiple SharePoint Farms from one client is pretty useful!

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

You can also do reports on what users accessed, and even filter on a certain user, or an object type.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

Another feature of Netwrix Auditor is out-of-the-box Compliance Reports. While I am not a big compliance guy and don’t know what all those standards mean, Netwrix Auditor has out-of-the-box reports that are mapped to specific regulatory compliance standards including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, FISMA/NIST800-53 and ISO/IEC 27001. If you are a company that needs to respect any of those compliance standards, it’s a real perk to have them created by people who know those standards, and easily available to generate data.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

Lastly, Netwrix Auditor also has an Interactive Search that allows users to search either on a system, or on all audited systems. You can filter by User, Action, Date, System and a lot of other filters.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

I wish that it was a bit more like Power BI, and using artificial intelligence to understand Simple Langue Queries like “Show me all the users who modified a SharePoint Group in the last 10 days”, but I understand that for security software, being accurate is a lot more important than having that consumer AI in place. It’s still pretty easy to build Search Queries and find what you need from all your connected systems.

Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint

Conclusion

In this blog post we reviewed Netwrix Auditor, a visibility and governance platform that that enables
control over changes, configurations and access in hybrid cloud IT environments, and focused only on the SharePoint related features. I would say that I am pretty impressed with the software and how easy it makes it for users to do view logs from all your SharePoint Farms, which you wouldn’t be able to do without a custom solution looking in the SharePoint Audit database. The point I think I found the most useful is separation of the Admin Console and Client.

Having all of the Reports that Netwrix Auditor has out-of-the-box as well as all the compliance reports can save you hundreds of hours of work, and I think that if you run an enterprise with hundreds of services, and thousands of servers, you need a tool like this to make sure you respect your compliance standards, and keep your network safe.

If you’re interested in visibility software for enterprises that also integrates well with SharePoint, make sure to check out Netwrix Auditor by clicking the logo below.

One of the new features included in SharePoint Server 2016, and also available with SharePoint 2013 as long as you have the required PU, is the Cloud Hybrid Search. The Cloud Hybrid Search has many advantages, especially for end users and if you don’t know what it’s about, check out my overview I did on CMSWire.

The Instructions on how to setup the Cloud Hybrid Search, enabled by the Cloud Search Service Applications do show you how to configure everything so you can search both On-Premises content as well as SharePoint Online content from the SharePoint Online Admin Center. What they don’t include is how to enable your On-Premises Search Center to also see those results. Since the index is fully in the cloud, as soon as you enable the Cloud Search Service Application, your On-Premises search boxes and Search Center will start returning absolutely nothing.

Cloud Search Service Application On-Premises

That is because, the default Result Source of your Search Service Application is looking for items in the On-Premises Search Index, which is empty since everything is shipped to Office 365. What we will need to do in order to get this fixed, is configure a result source that uses Hybrid Federated Outbound Search to Office 365, and get the results from that Search Index. Luckily, if you didn’t have Server-to-Server trust already setup before configuring the Cloud Hybrid Search, the On-Boarding process has already configured that for you, so you don’t have anything else to do except the steps in this blog. So navigate your Central Administration, and then to the administration page of your Cloud Search Service Application.

Cloud Search Service Application On-Premises

From there, go to Result Sources, and create a new Result Source. Enter a good name and description, so everyone else in your organization knows what this Result Source does, and in the Protocol, select “Remote SharePoint”. In the Remote Service URL, enter your main SharePoint Online site collection which is always https://companyname.sharepoint.com. You can easily find this from your SharePoint Online Administration Center.

Cloud Search Service Application On-Premises

In the Type, select SharePoint Search Results, and in the Query Transform, you can customize the Query according to your business needs. In the Credentials Information section, select “Default Authentication”

Cloud Search Service Application On-Premises

Click Save, and return to the Result Sources page. From the Result Sources Page, select the dropdown near the Result Source you just created and then select “Set as Default”

Cloud Search Service Application On-Premises

Simply go do a search from your Document Library Search Boxes or from the Search Center, and you will start seeing Search Results again!

Product overview by Vlad Catrinescu – requested by Collabion, but thoughts are my own.

Every Year, the amount of data that each company stores increases exponentially. The more data we have, the tougher it is to analyze in detail, and that’s when we create dashboards and charts. Those charts and Dashboard connect to our data and give it an intelligent visual, allowing us to consume more knowledge faster. SharePoint is an excellent tool for Business Intelligence, and is Microsoft’s Enterprise Business intelligence solution. Microsoft offers SQL Server Reporting Services, PowerPivot and PerformancePoint that allow you to create advanced reports and display them in SharePoint. The problem with those tools is that it takes an IT project with multiple teams involved to create any report.

As employees become more agile, they need to build charts and dashboards without waiting months for IT to deploy them. That is where third party products such as Collabion step in. Collabion Charts for SharePoint allow you to create Charts and Dashboards without a single line of code for FREE! When the great guys at Collabion showed me the demo of the software, I was pretty amazed to hear that one change they got in the most recent version of Collabion is that most of the features are 100% free forever, and only the advanced features need you to buy a license! Before Starting the review, here are a few words from the Collabion Website!

Do you’ve business data stored in your SharePoint environment? Are you looking to get insights from such data, but lack of analytics & visualization tools are preventing you from achieving the same? Wish you didn’t have to wait for IT to build each report, thereby saving you time? Well then, Collabion Charts for SharePoint is here, just to help you attain these!

Once installed through a point-and-click wizard, it allows any business user to create charts & dashboards, from any data source in SharePoint, without ever having to write any code at all. With over 56 chart types in 2D and 3D, support for interactive data exploration, multi-level drill-downs, and automatic refreshing and much more, the charts and dashboards will create a delightful data-driven experience for you.

Collabion Charts for SharePoint Review

To review Collabion Charts for SharePoint, I used their free demo site which you can access without even having to request a demo, which I found very cool! In this review we’ll start with the basic features, and then go to the more advanced. Let’s first start by creating a simple Chart. Collabion Charts can connect to SharePoint Lists, Excel Files, CSV files as well as SQL Server in order to create Charts.

Collabion Charts uses an editor directly in the browser to allow you to create awesome charts. Something I liked when creating a chart is the live preview on the editor window. Any change you make, you can easily see the result live before publishing it for everyone.

In our case, we have plugged Collabion Charts on a SharePoint List called ProductSales, and selected most of the fields in that list. It’s simple to select / update what fields you use with checkboxes.

If you don’t want all the data displayed in this chart, you can either Filter it, Group it by categories or only show the Top 10 records for example.

After selecting our Fields and how many records we want, we can select the Type of Chart that we want to use. Collabion Charts has about 17 types of charts that you can use, and you have a Preview Button so you can test what Chart will show the result that you want.

If are able to create a basic chart in Excel, you should also be able to create a chart in Collabion Charts! We can enter the Chart Title and Axis Title.

You can also customize the X-Axis and the Series to make sure your chart shows the data you want.

There are other cosmetic changes you can configure, however, if we go in the User Interaction section, we can do something that is really cooler. We can enable Data Drilldown. Meaning that once users see the overview per Country, they could click on a Country to see the sales by city. To configure it, you only need a simple checkbox specifying what you want to do the Drilldown on.

And the result when I clicked on France, looks like the screenshot below. It shows me all the cities with Sales Amount from France. I think this is a really cool feature!

You could also enable Multi Level Dropdown. For example, in another chart showing Products, we were able to Navigate from Category > Sub Category > Product Model as seen in the screenshot below.

Until now we were able to create some really amazing charts using Collabion Charts for SharePoint, without needing a lot of SharePoint Knowledge. Even if at first, Collabion Charts can look like it only does basic charts, it can also do some Enterprise Level Dashboards. For example, one of the demos is a Dashboard for the Fresh Forks Company that shows Sales Data, as well as countries and products. This gives us an overall view of how the company is doing.

If we want to dig deeper, we simply have to click on one of the years in the first chart, for example 2013! The Dashboard was configured that once a year is clicked, it navigates to another page and passes the Year as a parameter. All the Charts Webparts on this page look at that year, and show the desired data for that year. You can even configure it to allow you to go deeper again in your data, so you understand what’s really happening with your company!

Collabion

While configuring dashboards is a little bit more complicated than basic charts, it’s nowhere, and I mean really nowhere as complicated as building this in PowerPivot. Those Dashboards can really be useful for all your sales persons, as well as your Executives to understand where your company is going, and how sales are doing. Another cool feature is that, unlike PowerPivot which runs in Silverlight, Collabion Charts work really well on Mobile, allowing you to take your data on the go.

Before finishing this review, there are two other small but really important features that are included with Collabion Charts. The ability to export as a PowerPoint, and as an Excel File. Those can be a huge time saver when you want to present the data in a meeting, or want to play with numbers in Excel and do estimates, without playing with the actual data. You can enable or disable the export of a chart when configuring it in the editor.

The fun part of exporting it in an Excel File is that, not only it outputs the data, it also creates the equivalent Excel Chart for you that you can then modify as any Excel Chart. You could play with the values in the Excel Table, to make estimates, and easily look at it from wherever you have Excel!

Collabion

Conclusion

In this blog post we have reviewed Collabion Charts for SharePoint, a third party product allowing your users to easily create No-Code Charts and Dashboards in SharePoint. If you know how to create basic charts in Excel, you will be able to create amazing charts in SharePoint by using Collabion Charts, and with a bit more configurations, Enterprise Dashboards. If you didn’t heavily invest in On-Premises Business Intelligence, you really should check out Collabion Charts for SharePoint and see if it fits your Business Intelligence needs. Remember that most of the features (Charts, Dashboard building, All data sources) are free forever, and you only need to pay if you need some of the Pro features! If you want to play with it live, you can use the public demos on their site, which I also listed here:

1. Live Chart Editor

2. Dashboard Landing Page

3. Fresh Forks Dashboard

4. Inventory Management Dashboard

5. Features Landing Page

6. Basic Pivot Features

7. Custom Sorting In Charts

8. Smart Sheet Range for Excel

9.   Coloring Single-Series Charts

10. Custom Filtering with HTML Form Web Part

11. Export Collabion Chart to PowerPoint

12. Dynamic Chart Title

Product overview by Vlad Catrinescu – requested by Lanteria , but thoughts are my own.

SharePoint Server is mostly known for document collaboration as well as for hosting some of the best Intranets in the world, however what really got it famous in the enterprise is all the customizations you can add to it so it answers to your specific business needs. As SharePoint got famous, so did its partner ecosystem, offering all kind of add-ons to manage everything from your internal Holiday Requests, to your public Internet knowledge base and helpdesk system. One thing that all companies have in common is employees, and the need for a system to manage them. Instead of building a full HR Management System from zero, a SharePoint vendor since 2006, created a full HR management system that sits on top of SharePoint and offers a lot of functionality.

Last year, I did a Review of the Lanteria HR Management System for SharePoint that shows the product as well as a high level overview of what we can do. In this blog post, we will focus strictly on the Performance Module

PS: If you’re interested by Performance Reviews in SharePoint, Lanteria is organizing a webinar titled “Performance evaluations made easy with SharePoint” on June 23rd at 11 PST and you can register for free over here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3329336977049614596

Lanteria HR Performance Module Overview

The Lanteria Performance tool is a SharePoint Add-on that aims to automate and simplify the process of employee performance evaluations. Lanteria allows you to start Performance Reviews, Set Goals as well as do 360 feedback rounds.

Lanteria HR Performance Module

When creating a Performance Review, there are many parameters you can customize according to your business needs such as Start and Due Date, using a pre-made template as well as a custom workflow.

Lanteria HR Performance Module

Furthermore, you can select to what Companies, Countries, OrgUnits or even Job Roles this review applies to in order to ask the right questions to the right employees.

Lanteria HR Performance Module

If you don’t want to assign a Performance Review to a whole OrgUnit, you can also create an AdHoc review to only one user, for example, after his probationary/introductory period is done!

Lanteria HR Performance Module

The Workflow as well as the form can be easily customized from the Lanteria Settings Page to include the steps that you want

Lanteria HR Performance Module

The Forms are easy to use by employees and provide a modern feel instead of doing it by paper as a lot of companies still do

Lanteria HR Performance Module

With all this data available, the Lanteria HR Management System also produces cool looking reports of your Performance Reports so you can see at a glance how your company is doing and present them.

Lanteria HR Performance Module

And you have a lot of Out of the Box reports that can be used to view information.

Lanteria HR Performance Module

Again, with all the data the system has, it also gives you a Powerful Skills or Competency Search Engine

Lanteria HR Performance Module

I could filter by Certificates, Education, Training completed as well as specify some competency and only look for employees that master those skills.

Lanteria HR Performance Module

Conclusion

The Lanteria Performance Module which is part of the Lanteria Management System allows Human Resources professionals to easily assign, measure and customize performance reviews for all their employees. While the Lanteria Performance Module can be a standalone product, when you pair it with the rest of the Lanteria HRMS you get a complete HR Management System, running on the same SharePoint Farm as all your other SharePoint Applications. No Extra Hardware or user education needed.

If you’re looking for a HR Management System for SharePoint and don’t want to waste years creating it from zero, make sure you check out http://www.lanteria.com/ and ask them for a demo! You can also click the logo below to go to the Lanteria Site to get in contact with them!
