SPO vs SharePoint on-prem

Submitted by Vladilen on Mon, 01/07/2019 - 17:11

Microsoft "cloud first" initiative led us to the situation where SharePoint on-prem (SharePoint 2019) is just a branch (sub-project) of SharePoint Online project.

So "Hybrid" SharePoint environment is just a combination of two similar products - one in on-prem and the other one - in the cloud.

Install the following software:
Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013
Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015
is not required?

I.e. OOS farm will work, but report Unhealthy...

If you are troubleshooting SharePoint search that does work in general, bot does'n work for a specific list or library
(i.e. Search box not working), 
and you already checked list settings -> advanced -> Search.. Allow items... 
and you already tried to reindex list and site, 
it's time to ensure that default item view form is in place and works ok.
Of not - just create a new display item form and make it default.


SPO Modern Site Pages Enable Disable

If you are adding a page to your Office 365 site via gerbox->"Add a page"
and a "modern-style" SharePoint page is created, 
you still can have "classic" experience, i.e. Wiki pages or WebPart pages. 

Just go to your pages library via "Site Content" -> "Site Pages", 
then click "Files" tab and select "New Document" with dropdown option,
and this is where you can choose what kind of page to create.
