Visual upgrade of SharePoint online sites

    Addition 10-JUL-2012: Please note, this thread is in reference to a specific email message that will be sent almost exclusively to customers who transitioned from BPOS to Office 365. Of course, we've had a couple delays with getting the email out to the first group of customers.

  • Hi Mike,

    On the FAQ page you linked to, not one link seems to work, I just tried and everyone came back as not found.

  • Thanks Robert. Not sure what happened there--an additional URL was pre-pended to the one I entered.

    Fixed it.

  • This upgrade is available for all plans ?

  • This thread is mainly applicable to customers who transitioned to Office 365 from BPOS. It's possible to have a site collection with the SharePoint 2007 view if you copied templates from an on-premises SharePoint server to SharePoint Online, but I doubt many customers have this.

  • OK, thanks for the info.

  • I get a page not found error.

    Here's what the link sends me to:

  • Sorry about that. Link is fixed.

  • I'm really becoming frustrated with the number of Office 365 Help links that do not work.

    From your above faq, both links under the heading "How do I do a visual upgrade on my SharePoint Online sites" do not work.

    Please fix.

  • Fixed.

  • I, too, received email about Visual Upgrade. But when I went to my moved BPOS site there was no Visual Upgrade in the list. Could it be that Marketing is outpacing the techs ability to roll out Visual Upgrade?

    I will check back later.

  • There should have been a list of URLs at the end of the email. When you click on each link, it should take you to the Visual Upgrade feature.

  • You are correct. That worked.

    How about really BIG PRINT for dummies like me?  GO ?HERE !   :-)

    Thanks for your help


  • LOL.

    Yeah, good point. I was worried about the edge scenario where I wouldn't have a list of URLs. But I could've been more creative with dynamic text. Next time!
