It does not provide the command to rebuild the database and I don't see one that works in the docs

Now that we have this new page type, it is necessary to rebuild the database so that the CMS is aware of its existence. Access the URL /dev/build on your website. When the script is complete, you should see some blue text indicating that the field SiteTree.ClassName was updated to include SilverStripe\Lessons\HomePage.

it does that even if you right-click it and select “open with…“?

Hels

yeah I have. all it does is create a new message with the .msg file as an attachment. which seems spectacularly dumb since the files were saved from outlook in the first place!!

Hels

no mac. but I have outlook etc installed via office 365 only last week so its definitely up to date

Ed Linklater

Outlook for Mac is actually a completely separate product, previously called Entourage. It doesn't use .msg files

Ed Linklater

If you have Office365 though, you can open them using the web email client

Hels

??? so dumb!!! why can’t they make their own products compatible with each other???? obvs I know you can’t answer that, its rhetorical frustration!!! (so many frustrations with office, wish we could have google for education instead)

Ed Linklater

there used to be a "Mac Business Unit" at MS, responsible for making mac versions of all of the software

Ed Linklater

because macs were so despised under Ballmer, he put them in a remote campus, and treated them like outsiders

Ed Linklater

so other units, e.g. the Office unit, wouldn't actually help them to build a compatible product

Hels

still at work at 9pm trying to sort out urgent issues with insufficient tools for the job. all because the stupid university is too old fashioned to move on to decent cloud computing

Ed Linklater

hence massive compatibility issues between the mac and windows versions of Office

Hels

I dont get this warring. surely all companies ultimately profit by providing to wide range of customers, not forcing them to stick with only their products for ever more and eventually sending them off to the competition

Ed Linklater

when Satya Nadella took over he quickly shut down that stupid system and put a few mac people into each unit

Ed Linklater

so gradually things are getting better, the Office unit actually makes both Office for Windows and Office for Mac now (crazy!!)

Hels

I still want to bang their heads together & sit them on the naughty step - people (companies) who behave like petulant toddlers deserve to be treated like them…

Hels

back to the technical side - do you know how to open a file in outlook web app? I have logged in but can’t find any file opening menu & drag/drop doesn’t work….

Ed Linklater

email it to yourself, then you should be able to double-click it in the email

Firesphere

Ballmer was a charismatic leader of Microsoft, but made quite a few mistakes. Not jumping on the smartphone bandwagon, his hatred for Apple and his hatred for Open Source did Microsoft a lot of damage which Nadella is repairing step by step
