Episode 56 - Heather Newman - The Glitter Episode

A year in the making, we finally, finally managed to track down Heather Newman for this weeks show. Apparently, not even a blizzard could stop her from delivering everything that's fantastic about SharePoint and Office 365! You are our 2GAS Maven! We also talk all things new to SharePoint Online this week as well as some more feature parity between Skype and Teams. AL and Rod are still fighting over PowerApps and Flow. Will it ever end??


Episode 55 - Liz Sundet - Hub Sites are here!

We are celebrating Women in IT this month and second up is Liz Sundet. All we can say is WOW! This woman has 4 lifetimes of accolades, certificates, etc. She plays over 9 instruments and then still drops some mad SharePoint and Office 365 skills and is now learning BI. We are not worthy! We also talk hub sites, the Common Data Service, Guest Access for Planner, Teams retention policies and Rod ONCE AGAIN schools us on all things PowerApps and Flow, and much much more.


Episode 53 - Last of the no interviews - Teams and Planner

Its the first month of the new year (Cos Jan was v2 of 2017) and Microsoft is still churning out quality updates. Will it ever stop? Al and Rod cover new Teams updates, much to the horror of generic users. They delve into cool Planner features and Office 365 for Education. As always, Rod pushes the boundaries of his friendship with AL through tons of PowerApps and Flow stuff. Catch AL and Rod live from Tech Summit in Cape Town this week.


Episode 52 - The hardest show to edit - And OneDrive!

We didn't think they would last beyond episode 30. It's official, 2 guys and SharePoint have 52 episodes in the bag! Here's to another 52! Anyhow, back to regular programming, Rod and AL talk about the new OneDrive Files Restore, Bulk Metadata editing for SharePoint Online, some guidance information for Teams and Rod continues to do more PowerApps things. Apparently it annoys AL. Thank you one and all for listening to the show!


Episode 51 - Rod Takes over with Flow - 1st EP of the year

We are back!! Happy 2018 everyone! Although, it feels very much like v.2 of 2017. Never mind that, we are excited to get the first show out. Its just Rod and AL in the "almost studio".

In the news this week we cover mobile notifications, Shared with ME tab now available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint and much much more.


Episode 49 - Tech Academy - Resources for the IT Pro

The Timezone debacle. AL hooked up with some peeps in Australia and got the zones mixed, hence the lack of a guest on this weeks show. Besides, Rod and AL can actually do a show without guests!! In this show, we cover resources for IT Pro's wanting to skill up on Office 365 and Azure, Azure Migrate, Document Metadata in SharePoint Online, Office 365 user adoption information, and much much more.


Episode 48 - Warren du Toit, Azure MVP - Compliance Manager

What happens when Microsoft starts cozying up to Linux? They end up converting hardcore linux people to Microsoft tech and then they start loving it and become MVP's. Warren du Toit drops some crazy Azure knowledge on this weeks show. Also, in the news, we talk about the new Compliance Manager from Microsoft, New OneDrive Flow stuffs, and much much more.


Episode 47 - The Country Beard Daniel Glenn - New Flow Stuff

The man that bought a Garth Brooks double CD for Alistair Pugin is on the show. We chat to him about his world and where the industry is going with the new way of working with Microsoft Technologies.

We also cover all the new things this week, including Forms capabilities, Project links to Planner, the new App launcher and SharePoint Online Limits.


Episode 46 - When Christian Buckley comes to town - Microsoft Connections

With October being SharePoint Saturday (well its more Office 365, SharePoint and Azure Saturday) month, Mr Booklay as he is now known, came out to SA to spread the word of Microsoft at not only the 3 major events, but also jumped on a minibus taxi with the core team to travel from Johannesburg to Cape Town, stopping in Bloemfontein, East London and Port Elizabeth.

However, the show must go on; we talk about Ignite and the lead up, we cover what little news there was, we talk MFA, SharePoint document library flows, and cover the local scene. We love our listeners. Apparently its a...


Episode 40 - Dynamics Quest with Chris HuntingFord - OneDrive 101

We managed to track down the man with the greatest voice over vocals in the IT industry. None other than the infamous Chris HuntingFord. That's Ford with a capital F. Our tattoo'ed CRM God chats to us about how the technology has progressed and morphed into the Dynamics 365 icon in the Office 365 app Launcher. We also launched 2 new segments. Rod now does "Go with the Flow" instead of PowerShell and AL does something stupid called "New Features AL did not know about, of the week"... As...

Our first MCM on the show! Goosebumps. AND he is one of only 8 Exchange MCM/MVP combo's on the planet. *Big Deal*. With AL travelling to Cape Town to track down the one and only Nicolas Blank, Rod had been waiting for the interview so that he and AL could do the rest of the show. Instead Nic hijacked this weeks entire show. AL chatted to him about his role changing from traditional Exchange to more business consulting. We also cover the latest news, including a wrap up of last month's...


Episode 35 blooper reel - This is a must listen

The way the show works, Alistair does pretty much nothing except suffer from verbal diarrhea every week and Rod is left with making the show sound as good as it does. Our "Easter egg" is during the closing audio in the form of the blooper reel that Rod adds after ripping out all the nonsense. Most episodes have it. This one is arguably the best. Go scan through the others now!!
