Getting support/help on SharePoint and InfoPath

As 2006 rolls in, it seems like a good time to remind folks about support resources for SharePoint and InfoPath.  Each month I get one to several emails requesting help with a specific problem — as intriguing as some of those questions are, I just don’t have time to research and answer them.  So, if…


New SharePoint Magazine

Wow, has it really been since September since I posted last?  The weeks and months go by so fast! Well, rather than put off this post because it will take too long to write a “where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing” post, I’m just going to dive right back in… Today I received…

Product Feedback Center

Today, or at least for a good part of the morning, I kept watch on what was coming in to the Product Feedback Center.  There are some good bugs and suggestions being entered, and it’s thrilling to see.  I even entered some of my own about the Product Feedback Center, based on my use, and…
