Using a Kiota client for your API in a SharePoint framework solution

In this follow-up blog to using Microsoft Kiota to create a client for any API described using OpenAPI, Luis Mañez looks at using a Typescript client in a SharePoint framework solution.

Microsoft Loop, the future of document creation and collaboration

I and many others think that Microsoft Loop is the future of document creation and collaboration. Here's why:

When Microsoft Loop was launched in December 2021, ClearPeople CEO Gabriel Karawani posted a comprehensive blog about what Microsoft Loop is and its components. If you'd like an introduction to MS Loop, I advise you to look at that.

Here's a scenario we can all imagine: you're in MS Teams, and you have a team chat going on. You want to work in a table so you can capture area sales data (for example). How do you do this?

Currently you can create an Excel worksheet and save that in the Files tab of Teams. But that means leaving the chat or swapping to Excel which breaks up the flow of the chat. Loop components allow you to insert a table (and bulleted list, checklist, numbered list, paragraph and task list) directly into the chat. The great thing about this is that everyone in the chat can edit the table without having to share it separately.

The Microsoft 365 Maturity Model

 

What the end of LTS for .Net Core 3.1 means for Atlas clients

LTS, in this context, stands for Long Term Support. And for Microsoft that means something like 3 years. (Yes, that might not be very long-term in your reckoning). 

In this blog I want to highlight 13 December 2022 – the date when Microsoft support for .Net Core 3.1 ends – and why it’s important for all Atlas customers to upgrade to Atlas 4.0 before that deadline.

5 Key Features that every Microsoft Client Portal Should Have

You know the importance of keeping your clients happy but, let’s face it, keeping up with questions, requests and inquiries – as well as keeping track of all that information – is a daily and costly challenge. 

And then there's the issue of security; after all, many of those documents and interactions between you and your clients contain sensitive financial and business information and neither party could afford to have that information go astray.  

Knowledge: 4 ways knowledge management tools boost productivity

Knowledge management is an increasingly key focus in business, which makes sense given how knowledge management correlates to productivity and efficiency. Smart businesses are bracing themselves, and much of their preparation hinges on more effective knowledge management tools.

MS SharePoint Syntex explained: All you need to know about this content intelligence service

In late 2020, Microsoft released SharePoint Syntex. A Microsoft 365 content service, SharePoint Syntex adds Artificial Intelligence content service capabilities to SharePoint document libraries, creating content understanding models that automatically classify the many and various documents in those libraries. Essentially SharePoint Syntex enables businesses to efficiently use the information stored in its documents.

Right now, as a global tightening of the belt takes place, anything that optimises your organisation’s ability to make the most of its hard-earned collective intelligence and to improve productivity, is going to be attracting greater attention.

(Ha. Who would have thought that SharePoint document libraries would become a sexy tech topic – again?)
