You might have recognised that the workbench of the SharePoint Framework has a responsive design tester included. In this blog post, I take a look what possibilities we have to properly test the responsiveness and the user experience of a web part.
There are also some pitfalls included if you entirely rely on the integrated too.
Once a wise man cited a wiser woman with the following statement:
“My mom always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. – Forest Gump”.
This quote can be applied to SharePoint in Office 365 nowadays too. When you have a provisioned classic site or even a modern site, then you never know what primary colour you get as your default theme.
Recently I stumbled in a new challenge I haven’t had for a long time. One of my customers wants to migrate users from Active Directory Domain A to Active Directory Domain B. The problem was that all the previously edited documents should get mapped to the new users.
Not every one of our users works in marketing or is an expert in storytelling. Storytelling is a skill for the future, but like every skill, it doesn’t come overnight and requires training. I assume, like for many of my customers, have problems to find an appropriate image for the header.
On the other hand, to communicate what is happening around you is beneficial for the rest of the company too. Let me show you a use case why you use default images for events in communication sites first and how to solve this on this kind of site templates.
Recently a new feature has been added to the authoring process in SharePoint online. This new feature helps you to define appropriate alternative text descriptions for your images on pages. In general to specify alternative text for images is possible the first time in SharePoint history. Previously only the title of an image could be defined.
When a new image gets inserted on a page, the image gets analysed by a background service, which assumes the content of the image and returns an appropriate description. Through the help of pattern recognition and artificial intelligence, the returned values are pretty accurate, at least with the pictures I tested this feature so far.
