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.

Using Microsoft Kiota tool to generate Atlas API SDKs

Hi. I’m Luis Mañez, Atlas Chief Architect, and in this article, I am going to tell you about a new tool created by Microsoft, called Kiota. Kiota allows you to create a client for any API described using OpenApi.

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

 

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?)

Microsoft Viva Topics explained and reviewed

In early 2021 Microsoft launched Microsoft Viva as an employee experience platform designed specifically to help businesses manage the changes brought about by hybrid working.  

For many people, Microsoft Viva’s appearance in our daily working lives has become quite familiar, but there are still the finer points of the full Microsoft Viva offering that could do with a closer look. In this blog, I’m focusing on Viva Topics and I chatted to ClearPeople Director & Co-Founder Gabriel Karawani to provide an overview – and a review – of Viva Topics.

Why We Aren’t Waiting for Microsoft Teams Shared Channels

Last updated 10/10/2022

When Microsoft announced at MS Ignite in November 2021 that Microsoft Teams Shared Channels would be made generally available in 2022, I realised it was a good time for us to shine the light on Atlas Extranet

In this fast-paced world, Atlas Extranet is a feature ClearPeople developed and launched in Q1 of 2021. It’s a bit like Cinderella, working reliably in the background, waiting for the grand ball.
