It appears fun is being had by all!  Great to see everyone.  Thanks for making this a great community.  





  • Bringing your custom apps to Viva Connect mobile experience – three graduating levels or views of information and customizability in Viva Connections.  Use SPFx to build an Adaptive Card Extension (ACE) that supports 2 views – Card View (level 1 basic information) and Quick View (level 2 more information) and a deep link to a Teams tab (level 3 full information).   Future, seamlessly drill down from high level to detail – mobile and desktop experiences.    

  • Copy PnP Search results web part settings – scenario:  Many of your pages are based a template page you now need to update.  After updating your template page, use this list view command set extension accessed from Pages Library, to copy the settings of the PnP search results web part present on a page to the settings of the PnP search results web part present on other selected pages.

  •  Follow Documents in Modern Workspace with SPFx – many capabilities in 2 related samples – 1 extension, 1 web part.  Both accomplish same objective:  Easily identify/follow/unfollow a user’s key documents within Tenant and easily open them in Modern Pages (use extension) or Modern Pages and Microsoft Teams (use web part + extension).  This solution uses the Out of Box Social functionality Follow document and Microsoft Graph queries.   Exhaustive feature list by sample.
