Everything you’ve been wondering about using SharePoint for your Intranet

Looking for a new intranet and wondering whether to use SharePoint? If you’ve searched up ‘intranet sharepoint’ you’re not alone. With so many companies using Microsoft 365, and with SharePoint included in their M365 license, SharePoint is a logical choice for intranet software.

Approval workflow for a SharePoint Online item, for approval in Microsoft Teams

As Microsoft recently announced the upcoming retirement of SharePoint 2010 workflows we have seen a lot of questions about how to transition away from them before November.

Private Groups not appearing in SharePoint Search

One of the main steps when provision Teams, is calling Microsoft Graph API, to, well, provision the Team. Although the Team was provisioned correctly, we realised that the Team (and therefore all the content related to the Team, like files in the SharePoint library) was not surfaced in the Office 365 search (or SharePoint search if you will). So nothing at all was coming up for the Owner of the Team. Why was that?
