Demos delivered in this session

  • Making SharePoint Syntex testing easy - new templates in look book service – an information packed update and 2 new templates with supporting content, training and models, now available in look book.   Content Center template is used to classify, apply IP labels and more to content library while Contracts Management template is a business focused solution accelerator with a pre-built (pre-trained) model.  Learn by example – train, configure and run models against content in your developer tenant.  

  • Managing State Across Viva Connections ACE components – previous demos address managing “state” inside an ACE.  This demo is about efficiently sharing state/data across multiple ACEs.  In a card, state is updated when run a query, display returned data.  Instead, store data in local storage (cache), in a shared library that can be included in many cards, web parts, Application Customizers, pages and more.   Get data once, deliver faster to cards/pages.

  • Introduction on the new Microsoft Graph Toolkit sample gallery – presenter acclimates viewers to back-end samples repo and front-end UI.  There are connections between universal Sample Solution Gallery and the MGT Sandbox – so you can play with your newly found sample! Four community contributed samples today, goal is 15 – 20 in the next 2 weeks.  Please share what you have built using MGT or submit an issue with what you would like built.   

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