New Document Card View For Libraries With A SharePoint Syntex Model Applied

There is now a new document card view to display extracted model information (metadata) in a tile view in libraries that have a SharePoint Syntex document understanding model (DUM) applied. When a document understanding model is applied from a Syntex Content Center to a new library there are now three options (under advanced settings) to choose the default view of the library. Users do not have to choose to have this new document card view as their default view but it looks very good!

SharePoint Syntex: Pre-built & Pre-Trained Models now available for Invoices & Receipts

Recently Microsoft have provided two pre-built & pre-trained models for invoices and receipts to use with invoices and receipts in your organisation. These form processing models cater for invoices and receipts that are typically common organisational documents that every organisation will likely deal with. The models have been pre-trained to extract common invoice/receipt fields. The idea is you can install these pre-built models directly from a Syntex content centre. You can then add your own invoices/receipts for the model to analyse and it will pick out common fields and setup extractors for them. You can then modify the model to select the fields to extract rather than starting from scratch.

Use Sites.Selected Permission with FullControl rather than Write or Read

Over the past year Microsoft have released Sites.Selected permissions for both Microsoft Graph & SharePoint which can be given to an Azure AD App (App Registration). When created the app by default with Sites.Selected permissions does not have access to any SharePoint sites and has to be explicitly added added using Microsoft Graph or PnP PowerShell (Grant-PnPAzureADAppSitePermission) to the site(s) to be administered. Both processes only give the access Read or Write permissions to the site and not Full Control.

Adding the New Board view to a Microsoft/SharePoint List using PnP PowerShell/Power Automate (SPO Rest API)

Today some people who are running targeted release on their M365 Tenant have been able to add the Board view to new and existing Microsoft/SharePoint Lists. I wanted to automate this creation of the Board View and following on from a previous blog post I did where I created a Modern Calendar on a list. I realised to add board view it followed the same pattern – using SharePoint Rest API. Through using the Edge Developer tools I figured out the JSON & Rest call required and that the view type was ViewType2: “KANBAN”
