  • Executive room reservation tool for Microsoft Teams and Viva Connections built with SPFx - app for booking limited rooms by authorized users.  See app in Teams and then view the ACE (Adaptive Card Extension) cards with deep links to other Teams apps, in the Viva Connections Dashboard.   ACE cards can be targeted to specific users.   Look at code for CardView, QuickVew, Card State, button actions and at how data is accessed and merged with template.      

  • My Lists Notifications SPFx extensions – this application extension allows a user to receive activity notifications from selected lists or libraries – i.e., add/delete/modify document in library, approval completed, etc.   Easily view and clear notifications.   Updates screen only when there is new notification.   Uses service courtesy of Microsoft Graph to manage list subscriptions and notifications and then uses getListActivities to get particulars on the activity. 

  • Using OneDrive Apps folder to save user's preferences cross-device – an SPFx web part for saving user settings or preferences (i.e., dark/light theme, temporary secrets, etc.) in the OneDrive Apps folder.   Web part calls Microsoft Graph API.  Preference changes made in any of the user’s devices are reflected in other devices.   Step through the code.
