Great ideas from my go-to person about online communities, +Vanessa DiMauro.
In fact, the customer journey has long been an integral part of the online community experience. Many – dare I say most? – online communities make “the journey” a key part of their mission, aiding the customer before, during and after the point of purchase or other key decision. Communities are dedicated to helping customers and other stakeholders understand, explore, question and learn about products and services. This “Ah-Ha!” moment for the cu...

Friend of mine needs to sublet his awesome apartment on Beacon Street in Brookline MA. Large 2BR in the Runkle school district with parking. I love the place.

Check out this cool set of UI enhancements...
 
Been absent from here for some bit...

I've been logging many hours trying to move my application from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2013. Most of it has gone well enough. I don't have supportive IT folk right now. (They [he] are [is] swamped.).

The pictures attached are my answer to not being able to use the DVWP. So far I like them quite a bit. I cannot use the DVWP as I am not permitted to modify the .aspx files on the new 2013 server as I was on the 2007 version. I am working to get these permissions, but IT is not understanding the level of complexity of my corner of our SharePoint server. (Most of the organization I work for the folks just show lists and don't dynamically display any data.)

Here I have made heavy use of +Marc D Anderson 's SPservices and pushed the resulting data through the solution referenced here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25712917/how-to-create-curved-overlapping-menu-tabs-in-css as created by Roko C. Buljan.

The tabs are items from a SharePoint list. The visible panes below are selectively revealed by jquery <div>s. It responds well. There are 4500 items in the source list. I split it out among 58 individual geographical locations/page and 19 tabs.

The downfall: As I have created this client side from scratch, I have lot the ability for the end user to upload. With SharePoint 2013 and the almost mostly modern browser (IE 9), the default upload means is the new drag and drop function. The 2007 way of doing things, I'd just poke at the site enough to generate a call to Upload.aspx. Now I'll need to build one more by hand. I am currently looking to adapt what was done here: http://sympmarc.com/2010/10/15/a-jquery-library-for-sharepoint-web-services-wss-3-0-and-moss-real-world-example-part-4/ (Thanks again to +Marc D Anderson ) to add a link to the bottom of my display.

In the fantasy realm of things. I'd love to co-opt the function of dragdrop.js that SharePoint uses natively. My guess is that I could attach a function from within dragdrop.js do the <div> that surrounds my data. It seems that dragdrop.js generates a call to upload.aspx at the end of things anyway. I just want to be able to drop the data within that call to meet the needs whereby my users could upload.

Has anyone dug into dragdrop.js to do something along these lines and/or encountered a reference to the calls within that file?

I appreciate you standing by and reading all this. Good luck in all you do!

Just used Shazam to tag Shot At The Night by The Killers. http://ow.ly/qcDgk -> Sounds like The Blue Nile circa 1989 http://thebluenile.org/, which reminds me of +Philip Kret and the good olde days.

If you search Amazon for "SharePoint hat" you won't find anything. Yet. #SPWhiteHats

Keep trying.

Sadly, manifestly true at almost every company over a few dozen people. Humans just don't seem to be wired for change that isn't clearly linked to self-interest.
If you’re trying to make work better, you may be feeling, as Margaret Wheatley writes, “exhausted, overwhelmed, and sometimes despairing even as you paradoxically experience moments of joy, belongi...
