    #All the pre required variable to connect SPO.
    $strSiteURL = "<< Site URL >>"
    $strUsrName = "<< Site User ID >>"
    $strLstTitle = "Loan Details"
    $strLstDesc = "Various loan details in bank!!!"
    $strLstTempID = 101
    #Reading Password from end user
    $strPWD = Read-Host "Please enter the password for $($strUsrName)" -AsSecureString
    #Creating object to SPO with the provided user name and password
    $ObjSPOCredls = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($strUsrName, $strPWD)
    # Creating client context object with the provided user name and password
    $ObjContext = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($strSiteURL)
    $ObjContext.credentials = $ObjSPOCredls
    #create loan details list with the list template ID 101 (document library template)
    $ObjLstLoanDet = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ListCreationInformation
    $ObjLstLoanDet.title = $strLstTitle
    $ObjLstLoanDet.description = $strLstDesc
    $ObjLstLoanDet.TemplateType = $strLstTempID
    $ObjLst = $ObjContext.web.lists.add($ObjLstLoanDet)
    $ObjContext.load($ObjLst)
    # Sending request to SPO with all the pre loaded information.
    try{
        $ObjContext.executeQuery()
        write-host "Successfully Creates List $($strLstTitle)" -foregroundcolor green
    }
    catch{

SharePoint document library permissions

Now, let us discuss sharepoint document library permissions. We will see how to give unique permission in the SharePoint document library.

This SharePoint tutorial explains, how to give unique permission to list or document library in SharePoint Server 2013/2016 or SharePoint Online.

By default when you create a list or document library it will inherit permission from the parent site, but if you want to give unique permission, then it can be possible without using any code.

There are two things we need to do, first, we need to break the inherited permission, and then we need to grant new permission.

Unique permissions to list or document library in SharePoint

Open your site in a browser, then open the particular SharePoint list or library for which you want to give unique permission.

Then go to list settings from the Ribbon. This will open the List Settings page. On this page click on Permission for this list under the Permissions and Management section.

Then from the Ribbon click on Stop Inheriting Permissions from the PERMISSIONS tab as shown in the fig below:

how to give unique permissions in sharepoint 2013
sharepoint document library permissions

Then it will ask a confirmation dialog box asking you are about to create permission for this document library, click on OK as shown in the fig below:

sharepoint unique permissions

Now from the Ribbon click on Grant Permissions as shown in the fig below:

sharepoint unique permissions document library
sharepoint document library permissions

This will open a dialog box, Enter the Name or email address, optional description. Then click on SHOW OPTIONS, And there choose whether you want to send an email or now and most importantly from the drop-down list (Select a permission level) choose the permission which you want to assign to the user. See the fig below.

sharepoint unique permissions for list
sharepoint document library different permissions

Done !!!

Disable unique permission in SharePoint

Now suppose you want to revert back that is if you want to delete the unique permissions for the SharePoint list, then from the Ribbon Click on “Delete Unique Permissions” as shown in the fig below:

sharepoint online unique permissions
sharepoint document library stop inheriting permissions

This will ask a confirmation message saying “you are about to inherit permission from the parent….”. Click on OK.

sharepoint unique permissions for library
sharepoint document library stop inheriting permissions

Now it’s done, you list now inherit permission from the parent site.

This is how to give unique permissions to list or document library in SharePoint 2013/2016/2019 or SharePoint Online.

Check description of a SharePoint Document Library

Now, let us see how to check the description of a document library in SharePoint. Below are two methods to check the description of a document library in SharePoint.

Method-1:

For all SharePoint versions, if you go to the Document library settings page and you will see the description over here.

Open any of site for any version of SharePoint. Then go to the Site Contents page.

Get URL for uploading a document to a SharePoint document library

Let us see, how to get a URL for uploading a document to a document library in SharePoint 2013 online.

By default if you open a SharePoint document library and click on the Upload button it will open in a dialog box to upload the document like below:

get URL for uploading document to a document library in SharePoint 2013 Online

I got a requirement to give the URL of the upload page for the particular document library in the left navigation. So I was searching for the upload page document library URL.

The upload page URL for the document library should be like below:

http://SiteColURL/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List={GUID of document library}

Example:

https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List={C0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F}

To get the GUID of the document library you can go to the Library Settings page and from the URL you will be able to see the GUID:

https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/listedit.aspx?List=%7BC0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F%7D

In my case the id is: %7BC0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F%7D

Here just replace %7B with “{” and %7D with “}”

So the GUID will be {C0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F}.

This is how to get the URL for uploading a document to a document library in SharePoint 2013 Online.

How to display more than 3 views in SharePoint document library or list

Let us see now how to display more than 3 views in SharePoint document library or list.

The same script code we can use in SharePoint 2013/2016/2019 or in SharePoint Online to show more than three views in the SharePoint list or library.

By default if you open any SharePoint list or document library, then you can see it will see 3 views in the page and the rest of the views you can see after clicking on the (…) like below:

display more than 3 views in SharePoint list or document library
Display more than 3 views in SharePoint List or Library

As you can see in this example, you will be able to see 3 links like All Items, View-1 & View-2 and rest two views we can see after clicking on the … button.

Display more than 3 views in SharePoint List or Library

We can add a few lines of script code to display more than 3 views in SharePoint list or libraries.

Open the SharePoint list or library and then Edit the page. Then add a Web Part and then from the web part categories select Media and Content and then choose Script Editor web part like below:

display more than 3 views in SharePoint 2013 list or document library
Display more than 3 views in SharePoint List or Library

Then click on EDIT SNIPPET and then put the below code.

<script type="text/javascript">
ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(IncreaseSurfacePivotCount, 'clienttemplates.js');

function IncreaseSurfacePivotCount() {
ClientPivotControl.prototype.SurfacedPivotCount = 5;
};
</script>

Here 5 is the number of views you want to appear on the page.

Then Save the page.. Once you refresh the page you can see all 4 list views are appearing like below:

display more than 3 views in SharePoint online list or document library
Display more than 3 views in SharePoint List or Library

Below is a screen show from how it is appearing in a SharePoint 2016 list.

display more than 3 views in SharePoint 2016 list

Document library checkboxes missing after migration from Moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013

Let us see, how to show checkboxes that go missing in the document library while migrating from moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013.

Recently while working on a migration project we saw for few document library in list view web part the checkboxes are not appearing like below:

SharePoint Document library checkboxes missing

SharePoint Document library checkboxes missing

Open your SharePoint 2013 document library and modify the view which is there in the list view (from ribbon you can click on Modify view), then expand “Tabular View” and see if the checkbox is checked or not “Allow individual item checkboxes”. If it is not checked check the checkbox “Allow individual item checkboxes”.

SharePoint Document library checkboxes missing

The other thing you can check is that modify the view and go to the Style section and choose to display the default view like below:

SharePoint Document library checkboxes missing
SharePoint Document library checkboxes missing

Another thing you can edit it, edit the page and then edit the list view web part in the browser. In the web part properties expand the Appearance tab and expand “Chrome Type” to Default if it is not there. And also in List Views select Toolbar Type as “Full Toolbar” as shown in the fig below:

SharePoint Document library checkboxes missing after migration

This option work for us and just to let you know that this has been migrated from Moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013 using a database upgrade approach.

I hope this will be helpful to solve SharePoint 2013 Document library checkboxes missing after migration from Moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013 issue.

If you enable this feature then whenever a user uploads a document to the document library or add an item to the list, then the item or document will not be visible to users unless unit the item approved by the site administrator to people having Manage List permissions.

When a user adds an item, then the item will be having a status as Pending. Pending items are only visible to the user who created or modified the item and to users with the Manage Lists right.

Pending items are not visible to users until the item is approved. When an item is approved, it is marked as Approved and is visible to all users. When an item is rejected, it is marked as Rejected and is returned to the user who created it.

Configure Retention Policy in SharePoint Document Library

Let us see, how to configure retention policy in a document library or list in SharePoint 2010/2013/2016/2019. The Retention policy feature lets you define retention stages, with an action that happens at the end of each stage.

Suppose you want to delete documents that are created 1 year back, then this feature will be very much helpful.

An information management policy is a set of rules that govern the availability and behavior of a certain type of important content.

Configure Retention in Document library in SharePoint

You can create a retention policy definition within the site collection and then you can apply the retention policy to content types in SharePoint. Also, you can create a retention policy directly on a SharePoint list or document library.

Before doing anything first activate the “Library and Folder Based Retention” feature. Go to Site Settings and then under Site Collection Administration click on Site collection features.

In the list of Site Collection Features, search for “Library and Folder Based Retention” and click on Activate if it is not Active.

Configure Retention in Document library in SharePoint 2010

There are a lot of actions defined in it and we should use as per our requirement.

  • Move to Recycle Bin: In this case, when this will run the item will be moved to recycle bin.
  • Permanently Delete: If you will choose this action, the item will permanently get deleted.
  • Transfer to another location: If you want things like archival then this is the appropriate option.
  • Start a workflow: If you will choose this action, it will start a workflow but make sure it previously exists.
  • Skip to next stage: It will do not do anything rather skip to the next stage.
  • Declare record: If you have enabled the use of records in your site collection, this option allows you to turn a non-record into a record when the specified period of time elapses.
  • Delete previous drafts: This will remove all draft versions of the document but it will not delete the major version.
  • Delete all previous versions: This will delete previous versions of the document.

Then now if you want to configure this retention for any particular document library or list then go to the list or library settings. From the Permission and Management click on Information management policy settings.

Here click on any of the content types like Item or Folder. Here there will be 3 options. None, define a policy or use a site collection policy. Here we will the 3rd option and we will use the policy which we have created just now.

Then click on OK.

Now, we will see how to fix an error which comes when you will configuring Retention policy. The error message is: “there are no registered destination locations on this site. select another option.”

Recently when I am trying to enable Retention for a SharePoint list and I choose the action as “Transfer to another location” I got the above error.

there are no registered destination locations on this site
there are no registered destination locations on this site. select another option

Actually, before choosing this action, we should configure the Send To URL in the central administration.

For this, we need to first activate the Content Organizer site feature. To activate this go to the Site Settings then from the Site Actions section choose “Manage Site Feature”. This will open the Features page. Search for the “Content Organizer” feature and click on Activate.

Now Open SharePoint central administration and then click on “Configure send to connections” from the General Application Settings section. There you can give the Display name and Send To URL and click on Add Connection and click on OK.

Now in the Retention Policy page if you will choose Transfer to another location it will not give any error.

Configure Send To URL in SharePoint

Now, we will see how to configure Send To URL in SharePoint Central Administration in SharePoint 2010. If you want to enable Retention for a SharePoint list and if you want the action as “Transfer to another location” then you need to configure Send To URL before configuring Retention settings.

So before going to central administration, Go to site settings and click on “Manage site features” from Site Actions section.

This will open the Features page, Search for the “Content Organizer” feature and click on Activate if it is not activated.

Force Retention Policy to Run Now or specific Days in SharePoint 2013

Now let us see, how to force retention policy to Run now or on specific intervals days in SharePoint 2013. By default Retention Policy will run on a weekly basis.

As in this example, we have configured the Retention Policy to move items to recycle bin which are created 1 day before, but this will not work expected because the timer jobs associated with this will run on a weekly basis.

The timer jobs are:

  • Information management policy
  • Expiration policy

Here a point to remember is that “Information management policy” job should run before the “Expiration policy”.

We can change the retention policy schedule to run on a daily basis or now from Central Administration.

Force Retention Policy to Run Now or specific Days in SharePoint 2013

Open SharePoint 2013 Central Administration then go to Monitoring. Then from Monitoring page, click on Review job definitions from the Timer Jobs like below:

Configure unique document ids in SharePoint document library

Suppose you want to send one document link by email, then you will copy and send the document link. But what if the document is moved to another document library? The user will not able to see the file. So Document ID feature helps to maintain the uniqueness of the file throughout life. Document ID’s are automatically assigned to uploaded documents and this ID will follow the item throughout its whole life cycle.

Activate and Enable unique document id service feature

By default, Document ID will not appear for the document libraries. First, we need to activate a feature at the site collection level.

Open your SharePoint 2013 site and click on “Site collection features” on Site Collection Administration section.

Then search for “Document ID Service” feature in and then click on Activate like below:

Configure unique document ids for SharePoint 2013 document library

This is how to configure unique document ids in SharePoint document library.

Document deletion policy in SharePoint Online

Now let us discuss, document Deletion Policies in Office 365 SharePoint Online. What are Document Deletion Policies in Office 365 and how to create document deletion policy as well as how to implement the document deletion policy in a SharePoint site collection?

In lots of enterprises, one common requirement comes as to store documents for a specific period of time and after that, the document should get deleted. SharePoint Online provides this document deletion policy feature which will help to achieve this kind of requirement.

It will delete documents from the site after a specific period of time. Not only from the SharePoint site, but it also deletes documents from the user’s OneDrive for Business sites.

Previously SharePoint provides Records management and Information management policies that are helpful to deal with structured data. Document deletion policies help in the automatic deletion of unstructured data such as OneDrive for Business sites and team sites.

Below are a few points we should remember in document deletion policies:

As the name suggest document deletion policies work only for document libraries not with the list.

Three main components of this: Policies, Rules and Site Collections

We can create single or multiple policies. We can add single or multiple rules to a single document deletion policy. And then we can assign a policy to a site collection template (like team site template) or to a single site collection also. When you assign a document deletion policy to a site collection template, then the policy will be available to all site collections created from that template.

Apart from this you can also create a single policy and make it mandatory. Then the policy can be assigned to all sites in the site collection.

Document deletion policies are inherited meaning if a site owner selects a document deletion policy for their site then all the subsites will inherit the policy from the parent. But site owners can anytime break the inheritance and can apply a different policy.

Whenever you apply a document deletion policy, you should remember that the time period depends on the document was created or modified, not the time since the policy was assigned.

When you assign the policy for the first time, all documents in the site are evaluated and, if they meet the criteria, they will be deleted. This applies to all existing documents, not just new documents created since the policy was assigned.

Another point to remember is that A site collection or a site collection template can have one or more policies assigned to it, and each of those policies can have one or more rules. But there can be only one policy that can active per site and there can be only one deletion rule that’s active at any time for the libraries within the site. Check a very good fig like below:

Date from when the document deletion date will be calculated, in this case, choose either Last Modified Date or Created date. Whatever option you will choose, the time period calculation will be done based on this option.

The time period after which the document will be deleted: Here you can add Years, Months or Days. Lets us say if you want to delete documents whose last modified date before 2 months, then you can add 2 in the textbox and then select Months from the drop-down.

Also, you can Set as default rule checkbox to make this rule as a default rule.
