A few days ago, I got a challenge that required me to send a message from a SharePoint page into a Microsoft Teams chat and that can be achieved using Microsoft Graph. I created a blank SPFx project and this post will go to the most important elements. You can also take a look at a sample webpart that I built using this process.

In a few days ago, I have been asked me to create a couple of sites and I create a simple PowerShell script using PnP Framework. Creating these sites on the SharePoint administration centre can take a while since you can only create one at the same time. If you are using a script like this will allow you to do a bit more on that also allow you to run other settings that you want to enable/disable on the site. 

Did you know that if you’re a SharePoint Site collection owner you cannot see all the pages created? A few days ago, I notice that I should have a certain number of pages on the Site Pages library (80 or something) but only a few appear for my user. You can verify how many files you have on the particular library on the Site contents of your site.

One of the recent updated for Microsoft Lists / SharePoint List Online was the possibility to comment on each item of a list that allows you to interact with other users for that particular item. This is a great feature which will be helpful to many organization and will help users to extend their collaboration. However, it’s possible that some organization may want to disable or enable the option in a programmed scheduled.

When creating a Microsoft Teams private channel by default, it creates a brand new SharePoint site which will store all the information related to that private channel. This is a special site that contains a couple of settings. I will leave at reference an article that you can check to check those settings. I will share some PnP PowerShell commands that will help us to get this information.

A couple of days ago I come across a SharePoint feature that is very useful to check who view the file that is a SharePoint document library. This feature can be very useful to check who viewed that particular file. This feature will allow you do understand you saw your meeting records if you’re saving then on SharePoint.

A few weeks ago, I was playing with the Microsoft Teams creation using Microsoft Graph endpoint and as expected, a couple of teams were created because of that. Using these endpoints can be extremely useful to automate a process on our organization. However, when you’re doing this it will create a lot of “testing” teams. This is also applicable to Teams that are not “testing”.

Do you know you can send email to Microsoft Teams channel? If so you are familiar with this feature, you know it generates an email that is far from being friendly. With this blog post, I will show how you can make some configurations to have a friendly email which will be a lot easier for the end-user.

There are some scenarios where the document libraries on SharePoint are used only to upload files. For example, let’s say that you have a sales team that need to upload to a document library an excel every week. Therefore, maybe the new button to have an option to create a new folder or create a new document doesn’t make much sense.
