Standby for Reboot

P L E A S E–S T A N D B Y–F O R–S Y S T E M–R E B O O T…

TLC has been going through growing pains and, even with a backlog of nearly 40 blog posts ready to go, I have been wrapped up in many great projects, organizing internal processes and family (how is it possible my oldest is graduating high school, preparing for college and has prom this weekend!). But there is light ahead. I have been slowly finding time to get through this backlog of great tutorials and PowerPoint examples. So I am being smart and keeping things quiet for one more week and starting with a fresh series of posts on May 1st.

Please set your calendars and check back as there will be a continuous stream of content starting soon!

SharePoint Calendars and Internet Explorer Visual Formatting Issue

TLC adopted Office 365 before it was publicly available and have only good things to say about its use in a small business environment. Recently something has gone awry with the SharePoint calendars – something we rely on daily.

Up until 2 weeks ago, they looked like the left example, but suddenly the visual formatting changed to the ugly and hard to use right example.

But this formatting issue is only seen when using Internet Explorer. If logged in with Firefox, Chrome or any other browser, nothing changed, all looks good. So ironically, only the Microsoft web browser seems to be rendering the Microsoft SharePoint calendars useless!

After some research and testing, here is the fix we have implemented on every computer here:

– Open Internet Explorer
– Click the TOOLS icon in the upper right
– Select COMPATABILITY VIEW SETTINGS
– In the ADD THIS WEBSITE field, enter SHAREPOINT.com
– Click ADD and CLOSE
– Now SharePoint calendars should once again display as expected

Backstage in New Orleans

Spent a week in New Orleans with a new (end) client, coordinating presentations and AV needs. Super show, great crew, wonderful client and, of course, lots of good food! Had Josh from our office on showsite too.
