Customizations in SharePoint are always an interesting topic. Many clients remember the days of legacy SharePoint on-prem (2007, 2010,2013), where it was almost impossible to do anything in SharePoint without customizations. Some clients have started with SharePoint Online (MS 365) but have a desire to have customizations to provide a truly unique solution to their organization. If you ask Imaginet, “Should we customize in SharePoint Online,” our answer is generally “no.”
We help organizations solve their toughest business challenges with technology.

Microsoft 365 Implementation
A faith-based organization engaged Imaginet to implement Microsoft 365. Many team members used traditional methods, like storing files directly onto their hard drive or OneDrive, and email to share files. Or communicating and scheduling meetings using various instant messaging apps. With so many team members comfortable with their current setup, adoption to Microsoft 365 proved difficult at the beginning. Imaginet setup multiple review and training sessions with different teams to understand and resolve any issues and concerns. With User Adoption Coaching, Imaginet helped get everyone on board to use the new Microsoft 365 platform and improve collaboration.
Custom Microsoft Teams Configuration
A municipal power agency engaged Imaginet to address their adhoc content and collaboration challenges. Imaginet configured a custom Microsoft Teams solution to streamline processes across different committees and allow members to collaborate effectively. Power Automate Flow was integrated to create a series of automations. Folders are automatically created for each new agenda, agenda drafts are created from existing templates, and leadership is notified when documents are ready for review and approval. With the power of Microsoft Teams and the ease of automated Flows, their committees can now effectively collaborate and post messages for all agenda members to see.
SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online Migration
An insurance provider engaged Imaginet to migrate their SharePoint 2013 content to SharePoint Online. To ensure a seamless process from start to finish, Imaginet conducted Business Content Audit sessions with the insurance provider to properly identify content and site taxonomy. Once determined and approved, Imaginet used Sharegate to migrate their content safely. With the switch to online, Imaginet can now design and develop modernized business processes using new tools only found in Microsoft 365 unique to the clients needs.
G Suite to Microsoft Teams Migration
A financial services firm engaged Imaginet to recommend a single tool to improve their business processes. They used G Suite for storage, Trello for project planning, and a custom solution for internal communication which each required authentication and juggling to get their jobs done. Imaginet proposed configuring an Information Architecture in Microsoft Teams to include all features for effective communication, simple content storage, and secure planning and sharing. Imaginet performed multiple working sessions with their technical teams to understand their business needs, configured the one stop shop solution, and successfully migrated their content from G Suite to Microsoft Teams.
