Call Summary:

If you’re looking at this blog post, then you are at the new Microsoft 365 PnP Community hub at Microsoft Tech Communities!  Please take a moment to look around. The Microsoft 365 Update - Community (PnP) | March 2021is available. In this call, the Top 10 developer and non-developer entries in UserVoice are reviewed and top engineering priorities identified.  


Your votes do influence engineering priorities.  You are invited to attend the growing list of Sharing is Caring events.  Register today.  In Episode 117 of PnP Weekly tools and approaches for simplifying the move from Classic to Modern, on-prem to cloud were discussed.  Why Modern?  Well, one reason – Viva capabilities like the one that will be demonstrated today are available only in Modern.  Testing of SPFx v1.12 is on the final stretch.  Release expected any day.  


Thank you to the 200 + active contributors and organizations actively participating in this PnP Community during February. You are truly amazing.  The host of this call was Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) @vesajuvonen.  Q&A took place in the chat throughout the call.
