SharePoint – need more Date/Time Fields

Sometimes you have to break glass. You don’t want to, but you don’t have any other option. What to do when you need to add more field types (such as Date/Time) to a SharePoint list? When necessary, you can let SQL wrap rows and provide more columns to your list. However, the math adds up really fast – your removing a safety brake that taxes your SQL resource – so be cautious:

$wa = get-spwebapplication sharepointwebappname
$wa.MaxListItemRowStorage = 8
$wa.Update()

As the character Marcus Brody says in Indiana Jones, “You’re meddling with powers you can’t possibly comprehend!” (well, this might be extreme – I think we comprehend SharePoint a little..)
