Quick Edit Availability

SP2013

Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about the quick edit feature in SharePoint Classic display.

When you go to a list, you can use the Quick edit mode either by clicking on the ribbon or on the “edit” next to “new item”

Quick Edit Availability(1)

Once the button clicked, the view changed and you can edit the list the same way you edit content in Excel

Quick Edit Availability(2)

This can be useful but sometimes, the requirement is to disable this feature.

For this, you have two options:

First scenario, you need to disable it only for a specific view

  1. Click on modify/create the view
  2. Go down to the “Tabular view” section and uncheck the box “Allow individual item checkboxes”

Quick Edit Availability(4)

 

 

Second scenario, you need to disable it for the full list

  1. Click on your list settings and go to “Advanced settings”Quick Edit Availability(5)
  2. Go down to “Quick Edit” section and select “no” for “Allow items in this list to be edited using Quick Edit”

Quick Edit Availability(6)

 

For both scenario, the result will be that the “Edit this list” will not appear and the “Quick Edit” button will be greyed out.

Quick Edit Availability(3)

Of course, if you disabled on the list, it will not be available on a single view.

Hoping this helps!

SPFx – Security error on local workbench

 

SPFx

Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about an error that can occur when you start to develop SPFx.

Working with this, you can face yourself with an error of security when you try to launch the local workbench “This site can’t provide a secure connection

spfx error

To fix this, you should specify an environment variable in your user profile “NODE_NO_HTTP2” with the value “1”

Fix_Connection_Not_Secure_For_Localhost_SPFx

Thanks to my colleague stephane which was confronted to this error and shared his solution.

 

Update :

After some search, I found that the error was discuss on github and a solution without modifying a variable is provided.

When you run your “gulp serve”, run instead “NODE_NO_HTTP2=1 gulp serve

 

Hoping this helps!

Unable to download pictures from Microsoft Teams discussion

teams

Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about a misleading feature of Microsoft Teams.

On Teams, you can send and receive documents and pictures in a conversation.

tdf01

 

If you want to keep a copy of the received document, you can easily download it

  • either from the channel itself

tdf02

  • Or from the file when it is in “Edit” mode

tdf03

When you do that, you can see an arrow icon on the “Files” tab on the left of your application.

tdf04

When the download is over, the arrow become an “ok/active/confirm” icon (not sure of the actual name of this icon…)

tdf05

 

That’s cool, ok but only for document and not for pictures.

When you try to interact with a picture, you don’t have the “Download” button.

tdf06

 

If you want to download a picture, you first need to open it and then hit the “Download” button

tdf07bis

And then, nothing happens!

So you hit the button again, and again, and again…

In fact, something did happen, but it was not shown to you. Close the picture and then go to the “Files” tab on the left

tdf08

Then you need to click the “Downloads” link to see your files!

tdf09.png

You will have a file “MicrosoftTeams-image” for each time you clicked the “Download” when the picture was full-screen.

So, you finally have found your pictures even if:

  • Nothing change on the screen when you hit the “Download” on full-screen picture
  • Nothing change on the “Files” tab icon during the download process
  • Nothing was displayed in the default “Recent” section of the “Files” tab

 

Hoping this helps!

SharePoint Designer – Check if item exists

SP2013

Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk, again, about the SharePoint 2010 Workflows of SharePoint Designer. I know it is deprecated but on some occasion, you need to use what you can!

So, one thing which is missing is the possibility to check if an item exists before doing some action.

For instance, I had an error when I tried to delete item which wasn’t existing. pretty annoying since at the end, what I wanted (not having this file) was done. But my workflow ended in “Error Occurred”.

So, as a workaround, what you can do is create a workflow variable => set its value to a value coming from the item you are looking for => check if the value is not empty to know if the item exists!

spditemexists1

Exactly!

When you try to perform an action on a non-existing item, you end up with a “Error Occurred” but if you want to read a value from a non-existing item, it doesn’t throw any error!

 

Hoping this helps!

SharePoint Designer mail format error

SP2013

Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about a weird behavior you can have with the SharePoint 2010 Workflows of SharePoint Designer.

The problem was happening with some mail sent. In fact, sometimes, the content of the mail was weird.

Sample:

  • Some text where bold when received by some user
  • Some word where containing spaces coming from nowhere

 

Etc…

After some time checking my mail content, I went to see the properties of the mail

wmc01.png

Then on the body

wmc02

There is the content of my mail

wmc03.png

 

After some check with other mail having no issue, I found that a parameter was missing from the HTML Tag => xmlns:o=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office”

Change it like this

wmc04.png

Republish and all went ok!

Hoping this helps!
