Cannot create SharePoint document workspace from Word
When we create a document and go “Create Document workspace”, sometimes we are told that we are Offline. This can usually happen if we have SharePoint and Office installed within the same box, typically I hit this in development VM.
What to do? Turn out that this is a known issue with SharePoint. To get around this:
- Go to Administrative Tools > Services
- Stop the System Event Notification service
And voila! Now we’re online!
