Template Hub for SharePoint

The SharePoint Template Hub makes it possible for you to have a centralized repository for your templates.
It solves the issue with one-to-one relationships between Content Types and Templates by splitting this up, and give you the possibility to reuse a content type for several templates without any implications. All templates can also have metadata connected to them that will come over to the document when it is saved in the target document library. The document template repository is a standard SharePoint Document Library, thus it supports all the standard metadata, publishing and workflow features for working with your document templates, just like you would expect with regular documents.
The site administrators can configure the end user experience for the Template Selector using views, filters and columns, and you get live previews of your templates as well as sorting, filtering and search.

SharePoint ToolBox 48 special 365tube


Last weekend I saw a demonstration of this cool application at the ShareCamp 2012 in Munich: 365Tube – a cloud-transition of the MOSS2007 podcast kit (PKS). It’s a Codeplex project so you can download the whole source code!

Using the code and instructions everyone can setup a private youtube-like video library, e.g. for enterprise-2.0 – in a few hours, completely built on cloud components. It also demonstrates how application design has changed from code-centric (in original pks) to service-centric cloud-modules, scaling from a handful of users up to 10.000s.


Target audience

O365 subscribers who wonder how the SP online part can be used (better) or how applications should be build on SP online
O365 propects wondering whether or not to take the SP online module – and what kind of business impacts they can expect if they do
All users looking for an up-to-date replacement of the original PKS


The first version of this PoC is a WSP file and a documentation how to set it up on Office 365. For high scalability and storage considerations Office 365 service was extended with the video transcoding service and the cloud storage Amazon S3.
This example shows how easily such a scenario can be build – and modules can be substituted by similar ones, e.g. replace transloadit/S3 by recently announced Azure Media Services.


I have recorded the whole session for the SharePointPodcast which will be online later this week. The session was in German.
