PowerShell results size unlimited/truncated - $FormatEnumerationLimit/Width

Ever experienced the problem where you run a Powershell command and you cannot see the whole result because the result is truncated.

Problem:

If you for example run the Test-SPsite command you might see something like the following:


 Site        : SPSite Url=http://atlas/pwa  
 Results      : {  
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Conflicting Content Types" RuleId=befe203b-a8c0-48c2-b5f0-27c10f9e1622,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=FailedWarning RuleName="Customized Files" RuleId=cd839b0d-9707-4950-8fac-f306cb920f6c,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Missing Galleries" RuleId=ee967197-ccbe-4c00-88e4-e6fab81145e1,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Missing Parent Content Types" RuleId=a9a6769f-7289-4b9f-ae7f-5db4b997d284,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=FailedError RuleName="Missing Site Templates" RuleId=5258ccf5-e7d6-4df7-b8ae-12fcc0513ebd,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Unsupported Language Pack References" RuleId=99c946f7-5751-417c-89d3-b9c8bb2d1f66,   
            ...}  
 PassedCount    : 5  
 FailedWarningCount : 1  
 FailedErrorCount  : 1  

Here you will see ... at the end of the Results column indicating there is more content but it is not shown.

According to the documentation (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd347677.aspx) the solution is simply to provide the Width parameter. However i have not found a version of Powershell that actually does what the documentation says.

Solution:

The solution/workaround is to set the FormatEnumerationLimit parameter. Run the following command to set the limit to 20 lines.

 $FormatEnumerationLimit = 20  

You can also set the limit to -1 to get all lines returned. This can cause problems if the number of lines is more then 100.
The result of Test-SPSite now contains all lines.

 Site        : SPSite Url=http://atlas/pwa  
 Results      : {  
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Conflicting Content Types" RuleId=befe203b-a8c0-48c2-b5f0-27c10f9e1622,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=FailedWarning RuleName="Customized Files" RuleId=cd839b0d-9707-4950-8fac-f306cb920f6c,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Missing Galleries" RuleId=ee967197-ccbe-4c00-88e4-e6fab81145e1,   
            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Missing Parent Content Types" RuleId=a9a6769f-7289-4b9f-ae7f-5db4b997d284,

            SPSiteHealthResult Status=Passed RuleName="Unsupported MUI References" RuleId=6da06aab-c539-4e0d-b111-b1da4408859a}  
 PassedCount    : 6

Sharepoint 2013 - Fullscreen mode/hide quick launch

If you want to hide the quick launch on a SharePoint page or web part page in 2013 you could of cause use CSS scripts as in 2010.
But as a new thing in 2013 the user have the possibility to click on full screen mode. so why not load your page in this mode and then the user can choose to exit the mode if he prefers.

Add a content editor webpart to your page and click on Edit HTML from the ribbon.
Add the following code:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function()
{
  SetFullScreenMode(true);
}
</script>

For a long time I have been waiting for the reporting API for Planner and Staffhub. Today I got tired of waiting and found another way to do it.

I manage to create a PowerBI report based on all the planner plans I have access to and the same method will work for Staffhub and properly many other services such as Microsoft Tasks, Microsoft Forms, etc. 


How?Easy, but requires some Azure, Flow and PowerBI knowledge. These are the steps to I used: 1.Create an Azure Blob to hold the data 2.Create a Flow to save Planner data in the Blob 3.Access the Blob from PowerBI Azure – Blob!So first, lets create a Blob. No, not that kind of Blob. Access the Azure portal - https://portal.azure.com/ Select New and search for “storage account” Fill out the form and click create. I kept all settings to their default Access the new storage and locate/copy the Storage Account Name and Access Key – you will need this for connections to Flow and PowerBI. Next let’s create a Blob Container an…

SharePoint/Project Server - Firewall port open list
