  • Building a COVID attestation solution for Microsoft Teams and Viva Connections with SPFx – a personal app that collects information from users and provides a custom dashboard for working with the results.  Dashboard has a Viva Connection COVID-19 attestation card built with Adaptive Card Extensions (ACE) and SPFx v1.13.   From Card View, users answer attestation questions in Quick View.   A cool capability - questions on Quick View card can be updated by Admin without having to modify Quick View template! 

  • Building SharePoint Framework solutions with Microsoft Teams Toolkit v2 – an alternative to using the SPFx Yeoman Generator for building Teams apps.   The Toolkit – a VS Code extension targeted to web stack developers, supports the rapid creation of apps using SPFx.  Step through Teams Toolkit installation, project creation, manifest file validation, etc.   As the toolkit is in preview, the co-creators - Teams, SharePoint and Visual Studio engineering groups are very interested in your feedback.
