Welcome to another exciting issue of our monthly Newsletter!
Each month, we try our best to bring to you content that is relevant and beneficial for you. So, if you would like us to cover any specific SQList feature or if you want to learn more about any SharePoint feature then please do let us know.
What has AxioWorks been up to?
In last month’s newsletter we were optimistic about 2022, we saw signs of recovery after the long Covid downturn. February has not changed our feelings, in fact we can say it was a good month. Businesswise for AxioWorks that is, because the real world news are anything but good at the moment…
But let’s just look at our small world. We have seen a definite increase in interest is SQList this month, and received very good feedback! We think that is due to more businesses getting back on their feet and investing in new projects as well as our continued efforts to increase visibility of SQList.
On the 23rd, we attended CollabDays Bletchley Park 2022 and we were proud to be one of the sponsors. The event was a success! Great sessions throughout the day about everything Microsoft 365, Power Platform, SharePoint, you name it, and held at the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park! Simply a dream place for any I.T. passionate.
We are working hard on SQList Online, the cloud based version of SQList that will not require you to install anything in your environment. Simply configure your replications directly on our portal in a completely secure environment and press the button; we’ll take care of running and monitoring your replications for you. We should be able to have a demo out there in a month or so, but it’s still too early days to announce specific dates.
As always, the maintenance and improvement of SQList on-premise continues. We’re working on some major improvements to the replication engine that, let’s say, “will eat thousands of lists for breakfast”. Nuff said.
We are collecting reviews for SQList on Capterra, a leading software reviews and selection platform. If you have a few minutes, please leave a review here, we would really (really!) appreciate it.

SQList feature of the month: Export Lists created in Microsoft Lists to SQL Server
Microsoft Lists is an evolution of SharePoint lists. However, unlike SharePoint Lists, Microsoft Lists provide an option to create and manage lists independent of SharePoint as well.
So, users have the options to create lists using Microsoft Lists App in Office365 or using Lists App in Microsoft Teams as well. SQList Manager can export lists created using Microsoft Lists with data stored in lists the same way as you would export SharePoint Lists via replication to SQL Server.

SharePoint Content Management: Distributed vs. Centralized
In modern SharePoint, we have content management tools which have been honed over decades of SharePoint use. At the same time, our ideas about content management have evolved over that time. People are far more comfortable maintaining content on the Web than they were when SharePoint first was released.
That’s all folks, till next time.
