SharePoint 2013 Permission Report: Check Access Rights for a Specific User

SharePoint 2013 Permission Report: Check Access Rights for a Specific User I’m pretty sure that by now many of the SharePoint SME’s out there would have tried the  “Check access rights script for a specific user”  . Now if you’re new to this , please take a look at the link below to understand what this script is all about .It’s a very powerful tool with some limitations.  I happened to work with this script recently and listed below is my experience with this script .

Right after the upgrade was over, I found that, the Device Driver came up only as Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and I was unable to do anything with the brightness (it was full and you could imagine how it would have hurt the eyes). Obviously, I also could not connect to the projector because of the display driver. I searched in the OEM's site (Sony Vaio in my case) and it said, the drivers for Windows 10 are all going to be available only by Nov 2015! Wow - I can't wait till then - right? I decided to downgrade to Windows 8.1! Then came to rescue was!

Why is Microsoft Dynamics AX better than EPICOR (ERP)

1. Inventory Ageing report is not available in EPICOR 2. No Workflow in EPICOR for any module 3. Transportation module not available in EPICOR 4.

Purchase/Sales agreement is there in EPICOR with less feature 8. Product variant[Product master] is not available in EPICOR 9. You can’t configure quantity based production timesheet[route card and job card] in EPICOR 10. Costing sheet concept is not available in EPCIOR 11. Route group concept is not available in EPICOR 12.
