  • Microsoft 365 Tenant Service Health - Viva Connections Adaptive Card Extension – building an ACE to keep Tenant Admins up to date on tenant service health via mobile and desktop devices. The extension uses card view and multiple quick views to display affected issues and services in a tenant. Microsoft Graph is used to get service health data (issues). Submit action handling in ACE and Quick View, theme-based display. Complete and neatly delivered code walkthrough.

  • React News Web Part – presentation opens with a demo of the SPFx ReactNewsWebpart that displays thumbnail, article, link to article, preview description, creation date, likes and comments from SharePoint site(s) the logged in user is authorized to view. In properties, select display style (stack, single), show author, and select sites to search.  Nice code step through until technical issues prematurely ended the demo.  

  • SPFx Design Patterns - Custom Properties (Part 1) an overview of OOB Property Field Types – Boolean, Choice, Slider… with practical tips for deciding which types to use to deliver concise and predictable options to user. This demo was cut short due to technical issues, so Part 2 to be delivered in a future call, will focus on custom - not out-of-the-box Property Field Types you may want to add to your solution.
