TechNet Guru Winners – January 2020

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Tech Community.

All the votes (for January) are [finally] in!

 

Below are the results for the TechNet Guru Awards, January 2020 !!!!  

 

The TechNet Guru Awards celebrate the technical articles on TechNet, contributed from valued wiki authors like YOU! Each month, the contributions are scored by a panel of judges (5 per category, 2-3 in each are MS experts), and the winners of each category are showered with love and attention from all corners of TechNet. See the links at the bottom, to find out more about the competition and how to enter.  

 

We have picked the top three highest scored contributions for each category to bestow our awards upon. The awards are in gold, silver and bronze, the gold obviously being the top winner of the category. The last column is just a few of the comments judges made during the judging process. In some cases, we have not obtained permission to use the judges names, so they have been reduced to initials.  

 

My fellow wiki ninjas will be digging deeper into some of these articles in this blog series, so watch out for those.   Any of our judges can exercise their right to veto an article, if they do not feel it meets minimum requirements for a medal. When this is the case, we will at least give an indication of the reason, so you understand why.  

 

A big thank you also to the other authors who did not make the top three of each category.

 

Some articles only just missed out, so we may be returning to discuss those too, in future blogs.

Gold Award Winner

 

DBS14 BizTalk Server 2020: A review of the new XSLT 3.0 & Custom Transform Features Valerie Robb: "Excellent description for using the new XSLT 3.0 capabilities now available in BizTalk 2020.

Silver Award Winner

 

Siva Gujju BizTalk Server 2013/16: Workaround to receive QueryStrings greater than 256 characters Valerie Robb: "Good workaround with detailed instructions and relevant screenshots. May want to also add that this can be used with the newly released BizTalk Server 2020."



   Microsoft 365 /O365 Technical Guru - January 2020  

Gold Award Winner

 

Nanddeep Nachan Calling MS Graph API from Power Automate Flow Lasse Wedø: "Good article, could spend some words on the risks when adding rights to the application."
Mikael Svenson: "[NOT PRIZE MATERIAL IMO] This calling pattern has been covered in many blog posts already, and you need to call out that the HTTP connector is a premium one, not available unless you pay extra for PowerAutomate."
Mohamed El-Qassas: "Great article, keep it up." 

Silver Award Winner

 

Habibur Rahaman Overview of Microsoft Teams in Office 365 Mikael Svenson: "Good overview, but this information is readily available so many places already."
Mohamed El-Qassas: "Please avoid using external images in TechNet wiki. All images should be uploaded to TechNet Wiki then added to the article directly."
Lasse Wedø: "This article should be rewritten by someone who really knows Teams, I would recommend so many other sources for this information."

Bronze Award Winner

 

Habibur Rahaman How to handle script editor webpart in SharePoint Online Lasse Wedø: "Good article, like the mentions of the security risk of this setup."
Mikael Svenson: "Considering classic pages is not the recommended approach Online, and that custom scripting by default is blocked in all modern sites, it would be good to put the reason why you should not use the classic script web part (or my modern script editor web part). Developing and securing solutions is the way to go."
Mohamed El-Qassas: "Good Solution, It would great to mention that this solution is valid for a classic experience, hopefully, to avoid using external images."

   SharePoint Technical Guru - January 2020  

Gold Award Winner

 

Nanddeep Nachan Explore SharePoint Framework (SPFx) v1.10 New Capabilities: Build MS Teams Personal App John Naguib: "Very Nice, well done"
Mikael Svenson: "Nice walkthrough. Would be nice to list usecases for personal apps, and list some examples."
Mohamed El-Qassas: "Good article! but I don't think it belongs to the SharePoint category, it should be added to Microaost365/O365 category."

Silver Award Winner

 

Habibur Rahaman SharePoint Troubleshooting: Analysis on why multiple times SharePoint users are asked to enter the credentials John Naguib: "Thanks for the information very helpful"
Mikael Svenson: "Useful to specify this applies to SharePoint on-premises."
Mohamed El-Qassas: "This post needs more enhancements: 1. The images are unclear. unfortunately, you didn't follow our previous guides for providing good quality images. 2. The provided fix is short and not simple to follow, Ex: you should describe how to configure Kerberos authentication. 3. it would be great to add the "Applied to" section to specify which SharePoint version your fix would be applied."

Bronze Award Winner

 

Luke Taylor SPO - Avoid 5000 Row Limit Mohamed El-Qassas: "Good workaround! - I think the title does not exactly describe the content and it needs to be more focused. - This post is not an article, and it does not follow a structure of the article. - The "download" section is missing. - The "see also" section is missing. - Summary is not clear enough. - No images, no result, no demo for your workaround"
John Naguib: "Nice one, thanks a lot"
Mikael Svenson: "A better approach is to use paging so you can retrieve more items at a time. See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/57149688/how-to-get-past-sharepoint-online-5000-row-limit-restriction-with-caml. As you're using PowerShell, using Get-PnPListItem -List Tasks -PageSize 1000 -ScriptBlock.... would perhaps be a better sample."
