Demos delivered in this session

  • Updates on Independent Publisher Connectors & Notion Connector Demo – 44 connectors in production, 32 in certification pipeline today!  The Notion Connector is used to access Notion pages, databases and users. Notion is a cross platform note taking application. Presenters step through copying content from a Notion page into a Microsoft List. Steps - create a new integration, make Notion page content available to API, create flow that extracts data from Notion page. 

  • What's new with Learning Pathways – overview of Learning Pathways, integration with Viva Learning, platform updates, making Microsoft training materials available in your tenant, configuring to expose certain content to your organization, and adding your customer’s training materials to a custom playlist.  All content flowing into Learning Pathways is flowing into Viva Learning. Translation - if you’ve invested in Learning Pathways, that content is being integrated into Viva Learning.

  • Using inline editing with list formatting – inlineEditField attribute – field targeted editing.  Scenario:  Track toy construction progress in a list where status is displayed in tile view format. Tiles show an image, randomization (Elf quote), and multi-level progress bar using images.  The inlineEditField attribute allows user to edit completion status field.  Supported and unsupported field types reviewed. Full code in sample. Part 2 of demo (setValue attribute) to be delivered on December 23rd.

Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.    Request a Demo spot on the call
