Connect Azure Resources to Your Network with Azure VPN

Microsoft Azure VPN is a small but critical component of Microsoft’s Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform. Using an Azure VPN Gateway, organizations can connect cloud resources in Azure to their network in the same way that they might connect another office to their network, using a secure site-to-site VPN that doesn’t expose internal resources to the internet at large. On the Azure side, a virtual network is created and Azure resources are connected to that network. ...

How to Add SharePoint To Your Favorites in Windows Explorer

SharePoint is a great resource for storing and organizing documents.

How to Hide Fields on a SharePoint Form

Hiding fields in a SharePoint form can be tedious, or sometimes not even possible using out-of-the-box features. One common solution is to modify the forms in SharePoint Designer. However, this takes time and is prone to user error. A simpler solution is to use Javascript & jQuery, and the following code outlines how to hide any field on your SharePoint form. If you are unfamiliar with Javascript, no problem! Just edit the fieldsToHide line with whatever fields you wish to hide. Separate ...

BYOD: Protect Corporate Data and Empower Employees

If your business is like most small and medium businesses (SMBs), then some level of a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policy has probably already become a de facto standard. Most users these days want to be able to access their email, calendar, and documents from their mobile device, and most of the time, that mobile device is going to be their own and not a company device. Today’s mobile technology makes it easier than ever for end users to connect their phone to the company mail server. ...

CRM 2015 Email Router Fix for KB3072333 Update

I recently installed KB3072333, which is labeled as “Update 1.1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015”. Afterwards, a specific change to the Outgoing Email Router profile issued a 401 Unauthorized error in the event viewer. I found a fix and am posting it in the hope that it will help someone else! Specifically, the error prevents emails from actually being sent until this change has been fixed. The error looks like this: “System.Net.WebException: The request failed with...

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Solution with SharePoint
Peter Rijks

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Solution with SharePoint

The benefits of combining OCR and SharePoint are pretty clear. Image-only PDFs are not picked up by SharePoint search, meaning that many documents that might match a search request are missed. DMC's OCR solution solves this problem by checking PDFs uploaded to SharePoint and running them through OCR if needed. Once a PDF has been processed by OCR, it will contain a text layer that will be picked up by search. We recently added a number of features to our OCR solution and I’d li...

Persistent Variables in SharePoint Designer Workflows

Persistent Variables in SharePoint Designer Workflows

Often times when implementing a workflow, we as designers run into a situation where we need a variable to persist between each workflow. Sometimes it’s to determine if a specific process has been completed previously or to count how many times the workflow has run. When we run into these situations, using a workflow variable won’t do since the workflow variables are instantiated anew each time the workflow executes. To solve this we have to serialize the variable in the only way ...
