Have you ever clicked on the “Post” button in SharePoint Online?
While hunting for a “there’s gotta be a faster way” solution to co-worker Sean Wallbridge’s “Copy Shortcut – Gonzo in SharePoint Online!” blog post, I spotted a “new” (to me) button that we suspect has been around for quite some time in SharePoint Online.
I was pleased after stumbling upon it, as it not only offered a two-click solution to grab a URL to a document (now that we’ve said RIP to the right click > copy shortcut option), but also provides a way to easily post links in Yammer to documents stored in SharePoint.
So far after clicking the button, I’ve been patiently waiting for the link to appear in Yammer. Nothing yet… I’ll perform a few more tests and update this blog post when I have screenshots to show the output in Yammer.
What are your experiences with this button? Rants? Raves? Share your thoughts.
PS – my original, boring, time consuming workaround method to obtain the file path to a document in SharePoint Online, was to highlight the title (from left to right), paste it onto a OneNote page, then edit the hyperlink to grab the URL. It’s one more step than Sean’s method, or this method, so I’ll be switching to save myself time,
