Extending SharePoint Using SharePoint Framework (SPFx) and Custom Development
October 26, 2023
While SharePoint’s modern experience provides impressive functionality updates and improvements, there are still several reasons why clients may want to further extend those features or add new features that will better facilitate their organizational needs. This can be as simple as adding a new web part displaying calendar events differently to more complex full custom solutions that integrate multiple 3rd party systems to push and pull data in and out of SharePoint.
Some projects our Business Productivity Team has completed using SPFx include:
- A simple CSS font injection to administer the company-approved font choice for their Intranet.
- This was implemented via a SharePoint Extension that added the CSS to the Master Page.
- A video player that tracks the user’s progress to ensure completion, prevent skipping forward, and saves their place.
- We used an Angular Video Player solution wrapped into a SharePoint Solution Web Part. Saved information about progress was directed to a SharePoint list which would trigger a workflow to notify administrators of completion of the video.
- A full information request system for a large provincial energy company to manage the freedom of an information request system.
- Implementation was completed via multiple SharePoint Solution Web Parts, integrating with SharePoint lists and Power Automate to push items through the state system. We also utilized an Azure Function and Open Office to combine multiple documents into one and created a table of contents, headers, and footers for the newly generated document.
The SharePoint Framework provides full support for SharePoint development. Because it is fully customizable the options for what it can do are, quite literally, endless. Imaginet has the experience necessary to take full advantage of the benefits offered by SPFx and take your organization’s SharePoint to the next level.
