  • Looking for Samples!  Please share your good work  




It's together time - Super comfy seats!     


Demos delivered in this session

  • SharePoint Content Type APIs in Microsoft Graph - Classic SharePoint APIs are now showing up in Microsoft Graph.   In this demo, step through beta API methods, properties and responses for creating a content type (CT), adding CT to list, adding a column, copying to default location, updating a CT, publishing a CT, and associating CT to a hub site.  API permission requirements are called out and differ slightly by API.    

  • Live London Underground Line Status Bot in Microsoft Dataverse for Teams – the next stage in the evolution of the presenter’s Tube Status solution.  An interactive Tube bot in Power Virtual Agents, using Power Automate, and configuring your Azure environment for Azure API Management and Azure Functions.  Dataverse for Teams allows users to leverage Azure API Management service using a custom connector in Power Platform.   See solution architecture, execution triggers, rules, calls and more.   

  • Microsoft list formatting with header and footer settings – we are reminded that there are layers of formatting options for lists and that there is sample code for each layer.  Here we look at header and footer settings, for groups and entire list, beyond the vanilla capabilities delivered 2 weeks ago.   This session looks at Collapsed Simple formatting used for Q&A.  Uses groupProps, aggregates, hiding, tips on double nesting and more.      

Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.
