One of the most exciting new features I have used recently is the ability to train SharePoint Syntex forms processing to extract rows of data from a table where the row count is variable. Before you could not extract table data from a form where the number of rows was variable and the table size varied. Read on for a guide on how to implement this in your organisation.
Recently we have finally been able to add a modern calendar view to a list in SharePoint Online through the UI. Before this a calendar view was only available in SharePoint classic mode. I wanted to automate this view creation and in order to do this I turned to my trusty friend PnP PowerShell. I figured it needed to be done using SharePoint REST API by creating a new SharePoint list view using ViewType2: "MODERNCALENDAR".
Yesterday Viva Connections (31/Mar/2021) was launched to the world and this allows you to create and then install the Viva Connections app in Teams so your SharePoint home site can be available in Teams. The Viva Connections app needs to be generated exclusively for your environment i.e. generate the app to point to your SharePoint home site url and this is done through PowerShell. I will show you how you can build a Viva Connections app using just one PnP cmdlet Publish-PnPCompanyApp
In this blog I will show you how to retrieve M365 audit logs with Azure Logic Apps & Power Automate including the logic to handle Pagination for very large tenants (number of results returned limited to prevent response timeouts). I provide instructions and templates for both Azure Logic Apps and Power Automate so you can install in your tenant today.
Testing out the new Microsoft Graph permission level Sites.Selected which allow an app access to just specific SharePoint site collections rather than all.
There has been an exciting development/game changer with the new Dataverse for Teams now allowing users to leverage the Azure API Management service as a custom connector in the Power Platform. This means with the custom connector you can call the Azure Management API which can then run an Azure Function which can run code i.e. PowerShell. The automation possibilities are endless and all using standard Teams licensing whereas before you would need premium licences to run some PowerShell in Azure to make a Microsoft Graph call or execute a PnP PowerShell script for example.
Download Microsoft 365 usage reports using Microsoft Graph in Power Automate & then write to a SharePoint document library. Customise this solution to add further workloads i.e. Teams, Yammer, SharePoint, Outlook, M365 Groups...
