New Discord Server to Discuss SharePoint and M365!

Many of you know that I’m one of the moderators of https://reddit.com/r/sharepoint. We had a community member request a Discord Server for real-time help/chat which Reddit doesn’t do (well). I created a poll and even before it has ended, it had an overwhelming “yes” to creating one.

I have since created a Discord Server for the https://reddit.com/r/sharepoint community which you can join at https://discord.gg/7FqFA9rQzR. The rules of /r/sharepoint apply to Discord, as well, though Discord may give us some extra flexibility, such as a blog spam channel, but overall, my Be Nice rule is in full effect.

In the future I’ll be looking for moderators – as this is a Discord community rather than traditional server, NSFW and other colourful langugage, etc. is highly discouraged, but for now I think we can just Be Nice :-)

Just like /r/sharepoint, we do not focus on just SharePoint! Feel free to ask about anything SharePoint-related, including Azure services (Azure Runbooks for PnP provisioning, Azure Access Packages, Power Automate, and other Azure/M365 services!).

We welcome everyone to the community, even if you don’t want to join reddit – that’s fine, too!

See you soon at https://discord.gg/7FqFA9rQzR!

SharePoint Server Subscription Edition Preview

SharePoint Server Subscription Edition Preview has been released! This version of SharePoint offers a whole host of new features, such as Windows Server Core support, OIDC support, and an enhanced People Picker experience for SAML/OIDC which you can read below at the official documentation.

One big note I wanted to point out is the SharePoint Server 2019 Distributed Cache Crashes has been fixed! There is no need to apply this workaround as of the Preview or moving forward. This was a lot of work to resolve, so big applause to the SharePoint engineering team!

A new day for SharePoint Server

New and improved features in SharePoint Server Subscription Edition

And of course, as RTM comes, I will have much much more to say on SPSE!

Congratulations to the SharePoint engineering team and all of their hard work!
