Project Server to Sharepoint Email sync program

Today I got a support case where alerts in SharePoint was not triggered, I quickly realized the problem was that the email address on the users was wrong in SharePoint and the admins only updated the emails in Project Server. Why the emails were not correct i do not know and did not look further into it.
To solve the difference between SharePoint and Project Server I created this small C# script/program which synchronize user emails from Project Server into SharePoint.
You will typically need a tool like this when you are creating your users manually in Project Server and the emails are synchronized from a inconsistent Active Directory.

The program can be found here:
Project Server -> SharePoint Emails sync
The code for the program/script is as follows:
 static void Main(string[] args)  
 {  
   string pwa = "";  
   string webApp = "";  
   if (args.Length <= 0)  
   {  
     WriteLine("WRONG ARGS, PWA");  
     return;  
   }  
   pwa = args[0];  
   PS.Resource r = new PS.Resource();  
   r.Url = pwa + "/_vti_bin/psi/resource.asmx";  
   r.UseDefaultCredentials = true;  
   PS.ResourceDataSet resDS = r.ReadResources("", false);  
   Dictionary<string, string> resourcesEmail = new Dictionary<string, string>();  
   foreach (PS.ResourceDataSet.ResourcesRow resrow in resDS.Resources)  
   {  
     try  
     {  
       if (!resrow.IsWRES_EMAILNull())  
       {  
         resourcesEmail.Add(resrow.WRES_ACCOUNT, resrow.WRES_EMAIL);  
         WriteLine("Adding account: " + resrow.WRES_ACCOUNT + " - Email: " + resrow.WRES_EMAIL + "(Name: " + resrow.RES_NAME + ")");  
       }  
       else  
       {  
         WriteLine("Account email is null: (Name: " + resrow.RES_NAME + ")");  
       }  
     }  
     catch (Exception ex)  
     { }  
   }  
   using (SPSite siteCol = new SPSite(pwa))  
     {  
       using (SPWeb web = siteCol.OpenWeb())  
       {  
         foreach (SPUser user in web.SiteUsers)  
         {  
           try  
           {  
             WriteLine("Processing User: " + user.LoginName + " - " + user.Email);  
             if (resourcesEmail.ContainsKey(user.LoginName))  
             {  
               string email = resourcesEmail[user.LoginName];  
               if (email != user.Email)  
               {  
                 string oldemail = user.Email;  
                 user.Email = email;  
                 user.Update();  
                 WriteLine("Updating email for: " + user.Name + " (old: " + oldemail + ", new: " + email + ")");  
               }  
             } else  
             {  
               WriteLine("Account not found: " + user.LoginName);  
             }  
           }   
           catch (Exception ex)  
           {  
             WriteLine("Could not update: " + user.LoginName + ". Error: " + ex.Message + " at " + ex.StackTrace);  
           }  
         }  
       }  
     }  
 }

If you want to install a DLL in the GAC and do not have the GACUtil.exe available. Powershell is properly the easiest way to procede.

Before Powershell you would properly just drag the DLL file into the C:\Windows\Assembly but this option is usually not available anymore.

Powershell - Add DLL to GAC So to install a DLL file in the GAC simply execute the below Powershell script. Remember you migth want to run the Powershell prompt as an administrator.
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("System.EnterpriseServices, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a")$publish=New-ObjectSystem.EnterpriseServices.Internal.Publish$publish.GacInstall("c:\temp\MyDllFile.dll")iisreset
The first line adds a reference to the assembly we need to be able to mange the GAC.
The second and third lines retrives the GAC object and publish a new DLL file to it.
The last line resets the Internet Information Services. This is only needed if your DLL file is used in a websi…

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>
