SharePoint Alerts Management

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In SharePoint, users can receive alerts by email when items in a document library (a 'folder' containing several documents or files) are changed, added, or removed.

Problem: My SharePoint Administrator-level users wish to add a list of colleagues to several document libraries. To complete this task in SharePoint, they would need to add each user to each list. This is time-consuming and prone to error.

Solution:  After researching the Internet on solutions, I discovered Bamboo Alert Administrator. This tool plugs in to your SharePoint installation and allows users to manage user alerts on the document libraries in the SharePoint sites that they have Administrator access to.  Alerts can be added in a batch process between document libraries. 

Postcard Journal

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Travel is one of my main interests, and I enjoy photography/art and writing, so it is only natural that I started to keep a postcard journal. From each place I visit, I buy a postcard and make notes on the back side of the postcard. Sometimes the postcard is sent in the post with a nice stamp; sometimes I draw a picture onto the postcard. All of the postcards get placed into a book.

Although most of the postcards I buy are the standard paper or cardboard ones, I have also bought a few unique ones too. I've bought holographic ones and ones made from cork. (The cork postcard was sent and received in the post in one piece.)

The idea started when I moved to England for six months in 2000 to take up an internship. From every place in England I visited, I sent a postcard home to my parents. They had quite a collection when I returned! I decided that I would like to do this for myself, without posting all of the postcards, so that I had a souvenir and journal from each place I visited. I can look back on these and remember all of the places I have visited.
