Demos delivered in this session.

  1. Modifying event/calendar list rendering using list formatting –  Not all pages on a modern site are modern by default and modern pages cannot be customized.  See how to create a modern looking Events page using events-format-tiles-only.json.   Configure list and tile views – color text, add hover card and beautify events list rendering.
  2. Building enterprise 3D experiences with SharePoint spaces – a site owner focused demo showing the immersive (2D and 3D) near-tactile experience in Sharepoint spaces that allows users to re-arrange how content is organized in this virtual environment.  There is a full demo of space creation.  SharePoint spaces may be provisioned with SharePoint provisioning service.
