Check out the SharePoint Starter Kit

This is a solution designed for SharePoint Online which provides numerous web parts, extensions, and other components which you can use as an example and inspiration for your own customizations.

SharePoint Communication Sites have great out-of-the-box capabilities, but the out-of-the-box capabilities may not always be sufficient for your scenarios. This is exactly why you are able to include your own customizations. This solution addresses common scenarios and tasks you may encounter when introducing those customizations, and provides examples and guidance on how you might address them including:

  • Automated provisioning of simple demo content within a communication site
  • Automated provisioning of the whole solution to any tenant within minutes
  • Automated configuration of Site Scripts and Site Designs at the tenant level using the PnP Remote Provisioning engine
  • Implementation of different customizations for SharePoint Online
  • Usage of Office UI Fabric and reusable PnP SPFx controls within the customizations

Microsoft 365 freelance toolkit

Microsoft just launched a solution to launch and scale a freelance workforce in an Org. Basically, the idea is really nice and simple and includes these areas

  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Data analytics
  • Workflow automation

Of course, all of these are covered by Office 365, i.e. SharePoint, Teams, Power BI and Flow.

For me, it’s interesting to see that Microsoft is trying to show the value for clients and to show how different products could work like a single solution. And it’s worth to mention that it’s available for free for existing subscribers.

SharePoint Migration Tool v2 is not able to run under Administrator

I was writing about this tool before here and just experience the issue where I’ve realized it doesn’t work under Admin account and looks like there is no way to fix that. So, in my case, the tool wasn’t able to create logs folders because of this issue and I was able to do that using a separate box where another user account wasn’t limited by UAC.

Note: this issue was verified for version and could be fixed later but there is no any guarantee on that.


Page Diagnostics tool for SharePoint Online


Microsoft released a tiny tool for page diagnostics in SharePoint Online and it works for classic pages only. It is interesting to see that this tool delivered as a Google Chrome extension.

For now, there are only 5 rules available and Microsoft says they are going to have more than that based on a user feedback.

Вышел небольшой но интересный продукт для проверки классических страниц в SharePoint Online в виде расширения для Google Chrome. Пока что правил всего 5 но Microsoft обещают добавлять больше на основании обратной связи пользователей.
