SharePoint Community – July 2020 monthly community call recording

The SharePoint PnP Community monthly call is our general monthly review of the latest SharePoint and Microsoft 365 PnP topics (news, tools, extensions, features, capabilities, content and training), engineering priorities and community recognition for Developers, IT Pros and Makers.  This monthly community call happens on the second Tuesday of each month.

Call Summary:

SharePoint Framework (SPFx) v1.11 is expected to rollout very soon – days/hours.   Released a few days ago – .NET Standard 2.0 version of SharePoint Online CSOM API.   SharePoint engineering’s focus based on UserVoice requests is:  1) Add managed metadata term store operations to REST API and 2) Add support of SharePoint Framework solution packages to the AppSource Store.  Delivery of capabilities within weeks.  As is usual in this call, there was the typical acknowledgement of a truly atypical community.  Thank you.   The host of this call was Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) @vesajuvonen.  Q&A takes place in chat throughout the call.

Featured topic: 

Updates on Microsoft 365 Information barriers – a overview of Microsoft 365 Information Barriers (IB) and how IB policies interplay with SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams experiences.  Capabilities are demonstrated and Q&A addresses licensing, availability, future direction.  Essentially, IB is a 2nd layer of authorization, the first being SP permissions, that are explicitly associated to people and to sites to control access and dissemination of information for compliance purposes.
