Encryption at Rest for OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online

According to this TechNet article, Microsoft has finally completed the rollout of Encryption at Rest for OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn905447(v=office.15).aspx

"Every step of this encryption uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with 256-bit keys and is Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant."

InfoPath Not Dead Yet!!



So it appears that InfoPath will be supported for the near future after multiple reports that it was being killed off.

"As part of the update shared around the Evolution of SharePoint and the next SharePoint Server on-premises release, we are also updating the timelines for removal of InfoPath Forms Services components of SharePoint and SharePoint Online. Specifically, InfoPath Forms Services will be included in the next on-premises release of SharePoint Server 2016, as well as being fully supported in Office 365 until further notice. Customers will be able to confidently migrate to SharePoint Server 2016 knowing that their InfoPath forms will continue to work in their on-premises environments, as well as in Office 365. 
The InfoPath 2013 application remains the last version to be released and will work with SharePoint Server 2016."

New SharePoint 2013 Interface on Android

I was performing testing of the new SharePoint 2013 HTML5/CSS3 interface and did a couple of screenshots on my Samsung Galaxy S3.  Looks great, nice and responsive.


I was even able to create a new Word Document on my phone and save it back to the site.

 
And on top of that, it was on Office 365 Preview!

PowerShell Script: Identify All Workflows in Your SharePoint Farm


The following script will return all Workflows currently associated within your SharePoint 2007 or SharePoint 2010 farm using PowerShell and output it to a CSV file.  It returns the URL of the site, Title of the list, Title of the workflow, and the number of currently running instances.

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint") > $null 
$outputFile = Read-Host "Filename and location (i.e. C:\output.txt)"

$farm = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPFarm]::local
$websvcs = $farm.Services | where -FilterScript {$_.GetType() -eq [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService]} 
$webapps = @() 

$outputHeader = "Url;List;Workflow;Running Instances" > $outputFile

foreach ($websvc in $websvcs) { 

    foreach ($webapp in $websvc.WebApplications) { 
  foreach ($site in $webapp.Sites) {
   foreach ($web in $site.AllWebs) {
    foreach ($List in $web.Lists) {
     foreach ($workflow in $List.WorkflowAssociations) {
      $output = $web.Url + ";" + $List.Title + ";" + $workflow.Name + ";" + $workflow.RunningInstances
      Write-Output $output >> $outputFile
    }}
    } 
   } 
  }
 }
$Web.Dispose();
$site.Dispose();

It can also be downloaded from my Google Drive here: CheckWorkflowsInFarm.zip
