SharePoint Manager 2013 SharePoint Manager 2013 allows you to browse every site on the local farm and drill down to view every property. This SharePoint “object model explorer” also offers versions aimed at SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, and Office 365’s SharePoint 2013 Online (which is not free). At first I thought this tool was more for the development side, and in most cases, I can see that being true. However, SharePoint blurs that line in that a SharePoint admin may wear many hats, rather than just pass off the server after install and configuration. The only caution: You’re working directly with your SQL database info (with no “undo” button), so be careful.
