It’s important for all your SharePoint Sites to be as consistent as possible.
In the days of classic SharePoint, subsites were a popular way of organising your intranet. Modern SharePoint architecture leans toward a flatter hierarchy, where sub-sites are generally not recommended.
Not finding stuff you have permissions to is super frustrating. So this one has always confused us…. Do you consider it a bug?
Having inconsistent resource names across projects creates all sorts of pain:
– Struggling to identify resources
– Unsure what to label new resources.
– Risk of duplicating resources
In this talk, Jason Taylor will demonstrate an approach using permission-based authorization to overcome these limitations by building a flexible approach to managing roles and permissions from within your system. This will improve the maintainability and visibility of access control across your system. Putting the power into the hands of application users and administrators, rather than developers.
