IRMS Conference 2024

12 May 2024 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Live

My first ever IRMS conference. Was interesting. Beyond the usual variations of SharePoint migrations, which all had things to teach, I enjoyed the broader talks that place Records Management in a broader Information Governance context. Feels like RM can feel a bit neglected in comparison to the more necessarily reactive things like Data Protection, Security and FOI.

The Status Game

12 Jun 2023 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Books

Was keen to read this, as it’s a fascinating subject. It’s a useful lense to apply to how people behave. Great on the different types of status games, and how they happen in different proportions in a variety of situations.

Four principles of Retention in Microsoft 365

15 Oct 2021 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Live

I haven’t done sketchnotes for a while, not having any real world events to go to, and online can be tricky. The focus of being in an audience and having less distraction really helps me, so I was very glad to be able to attend a great session where I learnt loads. I have bookmarked so many of Joanne’s links and posts, all with the intention of making the time to read/watch them, but this time I pencilled in some time to watch her live. It was a good decision - aside from the super clear slides and delivery Joanne answered lots of useful questions - one thing actually made easier by online.

Practical Calculated Columns in Sharepoint

03 Jan 2021 in Blog Tagged: Thoughts

I’ve been working in SharePoint lists a lot over the last year and have finally gotten round to writing up something I’ve found useful. I’ve written it up in the spirit of sharing that the web is so great for.

2019 Reflections

31 Dec 2019 in Blog Tagged: Thoughts Data

I’ve previously written about my method of logging tasks, and notwithstanding the limitations of just focusing on tasks, I’ve found it enlightening to reflect back on what the data is telling me about what I’ve been spending my time on in 2019. I’m sure reflection is good for you, but like dieting and focus, I struggle to do it. I’ve enjoyed others’ weeknotes, but have dropped out of the habit - perhaps a more chart based approach might give me a good base to build some narrative on. So here goes.
