SharePoint Framework Special Interest Group (SIG) bi-weekly community call recording from September 24th is now available from the Microsoft 365 Community YouTube channel at You can use SharePoint Framework for building solutions for Microsoft Teams and for SharePoint Online.

Call summary:

Hopefully you were able to view/participate in sessions and question Microsoft engineers in the OneDrive & SharePoint Developer virtual booths during Microsoft Ignite 2020, this week.   Since our last call, project releases include:  CLI for Microsoft 365 v3.1 preview, React Controls v2.0 and React Property Controls v2.0 along with PnP Modern Search v3.15.2.  Note:  Reusable SPFx Controls v2 supports SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams only.  For SharePoint On-Prem use v1 (1.20.0) instead.  As well, new/updated samples delivered include 3 extensions and 4 web parts.  The next PnPjs v2.0.11 release is scheduled for October 9 along with other monthly releases.  The host of this call is Patrick Rodgers (Microsoft) @mediocrebowler.  Q&A takes place in chat throughout the call.

Thanks for joining us today!



  1. Use SPFx for Task Modules in Microsoft Teams and access Microsoft Graph – Scenario:  Documents in a list are past due for review.  Communicate review requirement to a Microsoft Teams user through task module.   Communications is between SPFx and Bot Components and task is rendered in an Adaptive Card with 2 actions:  View and Reviewed.   Communications between Library and Task Module via Graph calls.  This is a SPFx v1.11 capability only.
  2. Cascading managed metadata using Microsoft Graph and SharePoint Framework – this web part uses Microsoft Graph APIs to get and display data from Term store.  The web part has one property – term set ID.  For demo, gets country and city terms, populates drop down menus, and displays a map using PnP Maps control, based on location selected by user.   The webpart is in the PnP Samples repository and supports 2-level cascading today.
  3. PnPjs Tester Web Part – use this SPFx – PnPjs explorer web part to test any SharePoint REST API methods using PnPjs.  Specifically, this web part helps developers understand what properties/attributes will be returned in response.   Presently to get this information developers needed to use console.log to log response or debug the JavaScript to see what was returned.   Supports Get/Post commands, view json output.
