Call Summary

Latest news from Microsoft 365 & SharePoint engineering around PnP CSOM Core extension, PnP PowerShell, modernization tooling and on yo Teams.   This call previously known as General SharePoint Dev SIG has been renamed to General Microsoft 365 Dev SIG as we are routinely discussing products and integrations across the Microsoft 365 platform. A yo Teams section has been added to this call, managed by Wictor Wilén (Avanade).  The next PnP CSOM, PnP PowerShell and Modernization Tooling releases are expected by April 14.  Generally speaking, engineering focus for upcoming releases is on Microsoft Teams integration and cross platform authentication.  Six month roadmap for CSOM is reviewed.  On March 25, released yo Teams 2.13.0-preview2 including SSO tab features that will be demoed in this session. Full yo Teams release build expected in mid-April. Parker’s Place is now open, all proceeds go to charity.

Two demos were delivered in this session.

  1. Building no-code solutions by connecting web parts based on list data – efficiently create a connected contextual doc library page (mini application) by integrating 1st and 3rd party web parts and by using scripts from the sample’s library to format views.
  2. Implementing a Single sign-on (SSO) Microsoft Teams tab using yo Teams – creating a new or exposing one of your existing SPFx web applications in a Teams tab and need to verify user is signed-in? New tab features in yo Teams addresses SSO requirements.

The call was hosted by Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft).   ACTION:  Call attention to your great work by using the #PnPWeekly in Twitter.
