    It would be great if I Change the Content type of a document from A to B, the minor versions also get the new Content type “B”. So it would`t be so complicated to delete a list Content type because of the error message “Content type is in use” and the user don´t get the document in which this Content type is in use…

    1. Hi Andre,
      seems you missed the point: you need to enter your suggestion in uservoice – not as a comment to my blog.

    3 years ago, users could add a link in a library to an external document using format File://\\ServerName\Folder
    But it would seem an update (SP or CU) may have broken this functionality. Now we have to perform manual customizations in core sharepoint files to get it to work. Would it be possible for Microsoft to look into what broke this feature and re-enable it?

    There are websites that describe how to get it to work. Example website: “”

    Thank you for looking into this for us.

    How to work with recurring calendar events. User is requesting leave on a form and submitting for approval. Managers approval task does not show recurrence information. Export calendar event to outlook and end date and duration are not set correctly. How can we resolve these issues?

    1. Hi Kelly,
      I would suggest to open a support case with Microsoft to get this analyzed.

    SharePoint allows you to view all the Alerts for a user. It would be useful if I could look at all users who get an alert for a specific Alert Title. This would allow me, for example, to see who all gets an alert for a when a document is added/changed in a library.

    Hi Stefan,
    I think you guys should have a breadcrumb nav for a document library.
    Reason I say this is we are constantly getting users lost in “hyperspace” when trying to navigate deep folders. So when a webpart document library is added to a page it has it’s own breadcrumb nav.
