A few weeks ago, I’ve submitted my first contribution to the community repository of SharePoint Framework solutions, in this case for the extension. This was built with the purpose to send a message to your external users that access your SharePoint site. You can present this message to all your SharePoint sites using the Tenant wide extension list on your Tenant App Catalog.

If you have SharePoint custom solutions, you can have then installed globally, on your Tenant App Catalog or on the site collection – Site App Catalog. Each time that you create the Site App Catalog, you will see that on the site collection but if you do this process for multiple sites, you may forget each one has that feature active. So today, we’ll use a PowerShell Command to extract this information and also provide the URL that you can access to verify the information on this hidden list.

Sometimes, we need to quickly create an HTML page to share some content. In this case, it was a GIT presentation that was built and I had the idea to create an Azure web app to store this information since it’s an HTML page. This will help in the case we need to share this information with anyone. I’ll explain step-by-step the process that I’ve done. This could be one of the fastest ways to publish something with a public URL.

Often during our daily work, we’ve notification pop-up here and there on our screens, this disturbs our concentration on certain tasks. When that happen you can miss the logic that you’re developing to complete a task. To overcome these situations, modern communication tools allow you to set your availability to “Do-not-Disturb(DND)”. But, I’ll say that it depends. There are some persons that you may want to be disturbed by.

When creating a new page a header with the title of the page will be shown to the user. In the current days, it’s not possible to remove that header from the page using the SharePoint interface. Today, we will share a PowerShell that allows you to remove that area from the page and some article that you can use with different options.

Recently I have seen on the community that when you add a column with the internal name of Thumbnail, SharePoint automatically generates a preview of the document. In the post below, we’ll add this column to multiple SharePoint sites that have the list or library that you intend to have the preview of the document. This feature has been requested on the SharePoint User Voice.

Today, we will review and use a List formatting, one of the features that SharePoint and apply it via PnP PowerShell. You can use it to apply to multiple sites with this automated process. The concept of this sample is that you have a Team inside your organization and you want to share the contacts of the persons on your SharePoint using a list. The PowerShell created will allow you to create all the required assets for using this sample.

Column formatting can enhance our list/documents inside SharePoint. Today, I’ll use PnP PowerShell in combination with the Column formation to send an email to the person that creates a new item on the Documents list. This list is created when a new site collection is created.  We’ll add a new view on your list which and a simple email button that allow you to send an email for the creator of the item.
