  1. Using Microsoft Graph Toolkit to easily access files in Sites and in OneDrive – a.k.a. OneDrive finder – find and explore OneDrives, folders and files using Microsoft Graph Toolkit.  Use Graph queries to get hostname, Sites on hostname, OneDrive item-id, and Sites Root item-id.  Use 2 beta controls from MGT for search – Mgt-File-List and MGT-File.  Refine search results by file extension, items on page, etc.  Display style – light/dark mode.  Recommendations on managing file list cache and permissions.   

  2. Building Microsoft Teams user bulk membership update tool with SPFx and Microsoft Graph – a.k.a. the Teams Membership Updater tool – a web part for Teams’ site owners that pulls member updates from a selected CSV file.  Upon load, the web part calls Graph to pull the list of Teams you are a member/owner.   Uses Graph batch functions to remove orphaned members and then to add new members.   Uses SPFx Reusable controls and react-papaparse.  

  3. Building Microsoft Graph get client web part with latest Graph Client SDK – use Microsoft Graph Toolkit SharePoint provider to access and leverage new functionality of Graph JS SDK in SPFx.  Web part sample developed using React Framework that showcases how to use the latest microsoft-graph-client in SPFx.  The client enables throttling management (no 429s), Chaos management, uses latest types, getting RAW responses from API, Content-Type is already set for PUT, and a lot more!
