About The SharePoint Doctor

Doctor's Secretary

Trust me...

Yes, the title is supposed to be ironic, but I have been developing and architecting solutions on SharePoint Server and SharePoint Foundation (WSS) for over ten years, mainly in the field of Web Content Management and, more recently, collaboration. Prior to that I used SharePoint 2003, while developing mobile and web-based solutions on both Windows and Unix for Internet banking. Prior to that I developed engineering analysis software. I am a Microsoft Certified Master for SharePoint Server 2010. I also hold the usual bunch of Microsoft certifications, including all the SharePoint ones for the 2007, 2010 and 2013 versions of the product, and I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer. I am a moderator on SharePoint.StackExchange.com, the knowledge exchange site where you can get answers to questions about using and developing with Microsoft SharePoint products. I have been interested in software development since before Microsoft existed; in the days when computers required a special air-conditioned room, software came on magnetic tape, and man still walked on the moon. You can follow me on twitter at @SPDoctor.

Nothing interesting beyond this point (Online Privacy Policy etc.)

We are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personal information you share with us. We do not make any information we obtain as a result of your using this site available to third parties. We are the sole owner of any information collected. Any information you supply to us is used only for the purpose indicated. We take all reasonable precautions to protect the information you supply to us from unauthorized access or disclosure. Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we might have to disclose personal information by law if we were ever required to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on us.

We do not require you to "log in", register or supply information to us in order to use this web site. We do not use browser "cookies" or other visitor tracking devices. If you use the site to register software, we will collect contact information from you which is used to enable us to keep you informed about updates to and new versions of the software.

If you use the site to place an order directly with us, (as opposed to through an external site such as Amazon.com or Paypal.com), we will collect contact information (e.g. name, email and shipping address) in order to be able to fulfil the order and financial information (e.g. credit card number and expiry date) for billing purposes. We may use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies have advised us that they do not share information with other parties, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes without your permission.

Like most web sites, our web servers log IP addresses, browser and platform type, date and time, and referring pages only for the purpose of overall statistical analysis of web site usage patternWe do not use unsolicited bulk email. Because of the nature of email protocols it is possible for third parties to "spoof" an originating address in an email so that it appears to come from us, and unfortunately there is nothing we can do to prevent this. You can stop the delivery of any genuine promotional e-mail from us by following the instructions in the e-mail you receive, or simply replying to the email and asking for your details to be removed from our systems.


We have tried to keep the content simple and limited to standard browser features. We have used Javascript only where it is necessary to provide useful functionality, and these pages should still work acceptably even if scripting is disabled (or unsupported) in the browser. We have tried to keep our HTML consistent with W3C recommendations.

These constraints make it more likely that our site will be useable with less common browsers, and accessible to users with disabilities. It should also ensure that our pages load reasonably quickly even on a modest speed internet connection.
