SharePoint Weekly #14

Welcome back to SharePoint Weekly. There was a bit of a gap between issue 13 and 14, plus a change of location! Putting together a list of good articles was taking nearly an entire afternoon each week, so I’ve decided to simply pick the top 5. Also publishing on a blog is easier than maintaining an email list so I will be posting SharePoint Weekly on the Lightning Tools blog from now on.

Here are this weeks top 5 articles
