Copy value from column to another using JQuery

Copy the value from one column to another column on a New List Item Form.

In this example, I am populating the End Date Field with the Start Date Field value when user is filling out a meeting request form in SharePoint.

Add the following code on the page under “PlaceHolderMain” tag.

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Shared Documents/Javascript/jquery/jquery.js">

var strStartDate = $("input[title='Start Date']");
$("input[title='End Date']").val(strStartDate.val());

Alerts setup using the Intranet URL will not work for Internet URL in SharePoint

Create the alerts while logged in the application using the Internet URL. Most likely you created the alerts using the internal URL and that’s why the email are showing the internal URL.If you have already created your alerts you can updated them using the PowerShell command:

Invoke-AlertFixup -site <NewURL> -oldurl <OldURL>
