Building SharePoint List Forms with PowerApps is starting to roll out.  As you customize your forms, you may get to a point where you want to delete one of them.  When you customize a SharePoint List Form in this manner, the PowerApp itself doesn’t show up in your list of apps so you might be wondering how to delete the form itself.  It’s not too had, once you know where to look. Before you go an delete your form, keep in mind that you can roll back to any previously saved version using the version history.  Just click on File, Save, and then See All Versions. Just click the Restore button if you need to go back a version.  If you have the PowerApp open in an editor in another browser tab, you’ll need to close that first.

How to: Hide fields in SharePoint list forms using PowerApps

I’ve been building forms for a number of business processes lately using PowerApps and some of my tenants recently received the ability to customize forms in SharePoint lists using PowerApps.  One common scenario is that you might want to show or hide different fields depending on whether the user is creating a new item or editing an existing one.  I tried a number of approaches while experimenting with the visible field.  It wasn’t quite obvious to me at first, so after watching the following video that Chris Webb sent me a link for, I figured it out.

Why Microsoft’s Investment in Quantum Computing Matters

When the Ignite keynote shifted to the topic of quantum computing, my inner geek came out.  As they brought out on stage some of the smartest minds Microsoft has to offer, some of the audience glazed over.  Many people come to Ignite to find out what they can use to do their jobs better in the next few months.  However, with quantum computing, some of the reality of what we see is a litter farther out but not as far as you might think.  Not all of us will use quantum computing.  In reality, most of us will never use it directly. After all, your phone is likely never to be powered... (more)

Ignite 2017 Readiness Checklist

I started doing SharePoint Conference readiness checklists back at SPC11 and I wanted to update it for Ignite 2017.   This list may look similar to previous lists, but I have made lots of updates and additions. What to pack:Chargers / Power Supplies – I remember when I went to PDC05 (wow I am getting old), I forgot my laptop charger.  I was quite bummed.  Don’t forget the chargers to your laptop, Surface, phones, table, etc. I have gotten a few of these new emergency phone chargers at conferences lately and they are very handy here. Keep in mind your average day can be 16 – 18 ... (more)

Getting Started with the Search REST API in SharePoint 2013 Preview

We have a brand new REST based API for interacting with Search in SharePoint 2013 Preview.  Unfortunately, there is not a lot of information out there yet on how to interact with it.  I have pieced together a couple of bits to help get you started.  If you are looking to bring Search into an HTML / JavaScript based application, you’ll be able to get started right away.  The first piece of the puzzle is putting together the right URL to access Search via REST.  To do this, we start with the server name and append /_api/search/query.  Just typing this into the browser will start gi...
