SharePoint Server 2016 Features

Here are some features for SharePoint Server 2016 that are not available:

Power View and PowerPivot - The deployment of SQL Server 2014 add-ins are not available.

So some of the BI features are affected by this:

  • PowerPivot Management Dashboard
  • PowerPivot Gallery
  • Scheduled Data Refresh
  • Workbooks as a Data Source
  • Power View reports
  • Power View Subscriptions
  • Report Alerting

Security - If users are not given permission at the top level of a site they get the annoying multiple prompts to sign in. So for testing purposes make sure you give permission at the top level and not just a sub site to users.

User Profile Synchronization service - Has an issue when issuing the SharePoint Profile Sync option. Its a compatibility issue with the newer versions of SQL Sever that causes the fail while using FIM [Forefront Identity Manager] so use the SharePoint Active Directory Import instead.

Excel Services - There is extra work that needs to be performed in order to get the following up and running:

  • Standalone SharePoint Server 2016 farms no longer support certain Excel Services features.
  • Workbooks that contain a Data Model, connect to OLAP/Tabular data sources.
  • Excel Services Web Part needs an edit to the ewr117.png and ewr17.png files.
