  1. I really have the idea by now that one million people, or one million times, have approached me in public to try to pretend not to be talkin

    I know this is supposed to be computer questions. But how many times are they going to try to decide and classify me as psychiatric to reassure themselves about WHY I'm here; WHY I'm not working; WHY I'm single; WHY I don't have kids, WHY I go around screaming at everybody all the time by now; WHY that creep is outside my doors all the time; WHY I "use VOdka," but they never seem to wonder why they wonder these things...about me. They do; I'll have to learn to ignore their insipid insane treatment and pass it off as...childish curiosity.

      • What about the idea that "all," medical (including psychiatric; cancer tests; etc.) are involuntary??

        02/19/2019 - Finally, after years and years of voluntary/involuntary treatment; tests; therapy; etc., it seems that millions or hundreds of members of the medical community (let alone the legal community or the religious community) have followed me around since day one. Everybody kept turning up everywhere I went. This included McDonald's and Jewel Food Stores, as well as a litany of false diagnoses on myself (already disproven clinically) and their intense, burning desire to overzealously practice their profession, craft, or crime on me, any time, any place. It came to the point where any person with cop training let me…

          • Joined Sites to Groups Exiration Policy or Not ?

            In the documentation https://support.office.com/en-us/article/connect-a-classic-experience-sharepoint-team-site-to-a-new-office-365-group-469c6ee0-2139-4496-9914-7e39d07ac49d

            you talk about setting the policy, also the documentation on users going through the process of joining an existing SP site to an O365 Group.

            In both sets of documentation there is nothing that discusses whether or not that newly enlisted site is now part of the Groups Expiration Policy.

            Obviously for a Joined SP site collection we do not want this policy, or perhaps some do, but its optional.

            In any case where is the documentation on what actually happens here ? We cant tell, and dont want to wait a year to find out…

            • Keep the value without opening Excel file from Excel web access.

              When I insert SharePointOnline Excel web access on a page, I set to be able to enter characters without opening Excel.
              But,
              When entering or deleting values with Excel displayed on the SharePointOnline page, keep the input value and work with Excel of the basic data.

                • SharePoint Migration Tool

                  My Question though is my current migration scenario - is the company is disengaging from the world partner - this means a new Domain. So the user mapping must be for the user account on the New Domain. When the files are on the SharePoint on line - they must be mapped and accessed by users from the new domain. How can I do that? Please help.

                  • SharePoint Online (and OneDrive) Maintenance and the downstream effects

                    This question is coming up because of some maintenance that is scheduled for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. When they go into Read-Only mode, what are some of the downstream effects on other O365 applications such as Teams? I'm not finding any published documentation regarding this topic right now.

                      • Differences across 2013-2016 versions, but articles written as if they're the same

                        Please verify options or identified items are actually exactly the same before posting documentation, tech, support articles showing that something is exactly the same across versions.

                        I and users have run into this issue on a number of articles. This causes confusion and frustration, as it makes you expect options or to see configuration settings/have them available, but they're not.

                        For example: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-and-manage-access-requests-94B26E0B-2822-49D4-929A-8455698654B3#bk_enableallow

                        The top of the document shows "Applies To: SharePoint Online, SharePoint Server 2016, SharePoint Foundation 2013, SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Online admin center"

                        But the custom message option identified for "Access Requests Settings"…

                                        • SharePoint Online Updates - Where can we find the list of UI changes.

                                          SharePoint Online gets upgrades with every new release and Users are caught off-guard. Wouldn't it be nice for Microsoft to send out an email (since they already have emails) about the upcoming releases and the list of major UI changes coming up.
