Code-based Sandbox Solutions being Disabled for SharePoint Online

being Disabled by September 1, 2016 for / !  In the Office Network at http://network.office.com (a great community for information, alerts, changes, and community support) people were clearly frustrated with the not only the change but the timing and lack of support for exceptions.  Anyone in Office 365 / Online who is heavily invested in code-based sandboxed solutions or has purchased 3rd party / vendor created solutions are stuck scrambling to meet the deadline and also stuck with the dev bill, fall out from management if it's not fixed, and also the change management/communication burden as well.  The change could have huge implications depending on the number of customizations, complexity of the code, and the time taken to write it originally/time to rewrite the code using CSOM within any given environment.  I imagine there

Today Microsoft came out with a mind blowing amount of information, features, previews, and announcements about the future of SharePoint and Office 365 and how it is the core of Microsoft's, its customers, and its partners business.

How to activate and add the hidden Geolocation (location) column in SharePoint 2013

I was reading through a bunch of Technet articles today and I found a few things that I had never seen before for SharePoint 2013.  One of those things was the hidden Geolocation column.  IC592039   This column allows for latitude and longitude coordinates to be stored in a location column type within SharePoint.  This can then be coupled with Bing maps and you can create map views natively from within SharePoint from the create view menu!  This also allows for geotags from within photos, from mobile devices, laptops, PC's, and other devices that have access to your SharePoint environment to be able to automatically fill this field from the GPS sensor from whatever device is editing/updating/accessing that specific content.   IC616117     IC616119 Caveats
