  13. 13. Quick Sample List Of End User Impacts On An Upgrade 1. No Design View in SharePoint Designer 2013 2. No Breadcrumb (By Default) 3. Create Sub Site Has Moved 4. No Sign In As a Different User 5. App Naming & Organization (For Those Who Are Used To Previous Methods For Creating New Lists/Libraries The App Naming Can Be Confusing) 6. Share Instead Of Manage Permissions (Better Than Previous Model, But Requires Explanation)#SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  14. 14. No In-Place Upgrade More likely that the user will have (for a transition period) some sites in 2010 and some sites in 2013.#SPTechCon @RHarbridge

  20. 20. Users Can Try A Demo Upgrade Sends an email to the Site Collection Admin when queue and eval site creation is complete.• The “Upgrade Evaluation Site Collection” must be clearly communicated as NOT FOR REAL USE as it expires in 30 days – noted in a bar at the top.• It also creates a copy of the site collection, so depending on search settings, and storage this can have significant ramifications (beyond just the performance implications). • Depending on SQL (non enterprise) this may set the site to ‘read only’ until creation is#SPTechCon @RHarbridge complete.

  25. 25. IT Control Of Upgrade Rollout Some of the key questions… • When to unlock creating new 2013 Site Collections… • When to allow upgrade of existing Site Collections… • Whether to give Site Collection Admins control or not…#SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  26. 26. What Do Users Need To Know From IT?• Information on what will happen during transition…• Communication on when their 2013 ‘infrastructure’ upgrade will occur…• Provided directions if using self-service upgrade…• Notifications and reminders for when upgrade must be completed by… • Self-service upgrade still means getting people to do it eventually by a specific time• Notification when the ‘infrastructure’ upgrade is finished…• What IT support, training, and help will be available…#SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  27. 27. What Do Users Need To Know From IT?• In migration tool driven upgrade scenarios users will need to know what their level of involvement will be.• They may need training on the migration tools, or the migration process.• What will change after migration/upgrade?• How will IT be charging or managing the cost for the migration?• What new services IT will be providing that they can leverage using SharePoint 2013?#SPTechCon @RHarbridge

  29. 29. 1. Delete Unused/Evaluate Underused Site Collections & Sub Sites Not every ‘unused’ site collection or ‘old’ site collection should be deleted. Example: Emergency Preparedness Site#SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  30. 30. 2. Delete Unnecessary Versions Hopefully you already limit the number of versions whenever versioning is enabled… If you don’t – the upgrade provides a reminder (and benefit) to adjusting and evaluating versioning and previous stored versions of documents.#SPTechCon @RHarbridge Before Digital File Shares SharePoint

  39. 39. Focus On Content Are your pages ready for wider displays when users choose to ‘focus’ on content and hide the quick launch? Is this a feature you already plan on using for those wide lists/pages?#SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  40. 40. Sharing Is Easier Sharing in SharePoint 2013 is designed to mitigate common problems from previous versions: • Granting access to a site can be a bit convoluted • Users don’t understand what permission level to grant to other users • Users generally dont know who all has permissions on a site • Users can’t see the invitations that have been sent out to external users. • Users don’t understand what rights they are giving people when they add them to a SharePoint group#SPTechCon @RHarbridge

  45. 45. SPTechCon The SharePoint Technology Conference Examples Of New Features & User Impact SPTechCon The SharePoint#SPTechCon @RHarbridge Technology Conference
  46. 46. iFrames & External Content What is it? • In SharePoint 2013 content authors can insert an iframe element into an HTML field on a page. Why does it matter? • This lets content authors embed dynamic content from other sites, such as videos or map directions. What does a user have to do on upgrade? • By default, certain trusted external domains are already approved for use in iframes. Site collection administrators can customize the field security settings by changing the default trusted external domains. They can also allow content authors to insert iframes for any external domain, or prevent them from inserting iframes on any page. (HTML#SPTechCon @RHarbridge Field Security Settings)
  47. 47. Content Search Web Part What is it? • A new web part that allows a user to roll up aggregated content across sites, site collections or the entire farm (unrestricted). Why does it matter? • Rolling up content across sites and site collections removes barriers and helps improve productivity when working across many locations. What does a user have to do on upgrade? • If the organization doesn’t have an alternative component for cross site collection roll up then this is the perfect opportunity to begin using this. • If the organization does have an alternative component for cross site#SPTechCon @RHarbridge it may be worth evaluating replacing it with this web collection roll up, part where appropriate.
  48. 48. Image Renditions What is it? • Image renditions let you display different sized versions of an image on different pages.Users can select the image rendition they want when modifying page content under the ‘Pick Rendition’ option. Why does it matter? • Not only does the image often look better when set to a smaller size (using renditions) but it also can be an extremely small fraction of the image size. What does a user have to do on upgrade? • By default, the image preview that is displayed for an image rendition is generated from the center of the image. Unfortunately this also means many need to be adjusted throughout your publishing sites (if you#SPTechCon @RHarbridge intend to use this feature).

  52. 52. Controlling The Site Collection Upgrade Rollout • Defer upgrade for site collections until you can get updated customizations to support 2013 mode. – If you wait until the customizations are available, you can complete the initial upgrade of database and services without significantly affecting use of the existing sites in 2010 mode.#SPTechCon @RHarbridge

  54. 54. 2007 Only – Address Large Lists Wait a second… I have SharePoint 2007 (or 2003)! • Large list views and lists with many lookup columns have performance challenges. • If you are upgrading to SharePoint 2010 this is also important to understand as the default throttling limits may impact user experience. • SQL Scripts (Read Only) and API calls can help identify what lists you do have over the default throttle settings, and which have a larger lookup count. • Preventative Measures: Selectively indexing large list columns can help (up to 10 columns), building smarter more efficient views (1st filter), CAML/Search alternatives…#SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  55. 55. Address Wide Lists?What are wide lists (lists with too many Column Type Number Ofcolumns)? ColumnsWide lists are lists with more columns than fit (Table Row)in a single rowspan in the content database. Single Line Of Text 64During upgrade, the database is changed to a Choice 32sparse table structure, and a very wide list cancause upgrade to fail. Use the Test- Date & Time 8SPContentDatabase command in Windows Yes/No 16PowerShell to look for wide lists in the content Number/Currency 12databases and then remove extra columnsbefore you upgrade. Calculated 8 Integer, Lookup, People & 16http://technet.microsoft.com/en- Group, Managed Metadataus/library/ff382641%28v=office.15%29 Unique ID 1 #SPTechCon @RHarbridge
  56. 56. Number Of Site Collections Per DB Too many site collections in a content database? If you have 5,000 or more site collections in a database you should break them out into multiple databases. Why is this necessary? In SharePoint 2010 Products, there was a default warning at 9,000 site collections and a hard limit at 15,000 site collections. In SharePoint 2013 Preview, these values change to 2,000 site collections for the warning and 5,000 site collections for the limit.#SPTechCon @RHarbridge Microsoft ‘suggests you consider it’. Richard says you should do it (at a minimum).
