Hello, here really simple post to explain how to create a SharePoint site without Microsoft 365 group associated.
Follow there instructions:
Clicck on App Launcher and then on “Admin”. Then click on “Expand all” , SharePoint and “Active sites”
Then we can create site:
Click on Create and “Other options”:
Now we can create our site:
Why we should create site with no M365 group? If we don’t need Outlook, planner or Teams associated but just need a SharePoint Team Site. Just to remind…to do that, we should be are SharePoint Administrator.
Hello, This is one of a series of post where I want to help you to improve your experience with SharePoint Online. This article,I’ll explane how you can ask to SPO to inform you whene anyone makes change to your documents.
We have SharePoint site, and a document library called “Docs” where we collaborate with our collegues (PS: Do you know Co authoring? See this link)
Basically We don’t want go every day on our document library to check if our collegues has make change on documents…So how can SharePoint help us?
Simple ,As I usually try to explain…:-) One way is configure an Alert on Document Library (Or Lists). Go to your DL, and looking for “Alert Me” on Ribbon:
Next Page page ask us a series of parameters to configure Alert. In Order:
Title: Title of the Alert (also included in subject mail).
Send Alert To: People to receives alert.
Delivery method: Choose if you want receive mail or SMS.ù
Change type: Very important. The changes typology that trigger the alert. For Example Item modified, or Deleted.
Send Alerts for These Changes: Useful to restrict alert, for example you can get alert only for document created by you.
When to Send Alerts: How frequently you want to be alerted? My suggestion , generally, is Daily recap to limits numers of mails.
This is really simple way. Another option is create a Power Automate flow with appropriate trigger. I hope this is usefull for you.
If you’ve ever developed a custom Web Part for SharePoint, and “Failed to load components” message occures for guest users, here you can find possibile solution to fix it.
SPFx Failed to load component guest users
I develop a SPO Webpart…it run correctly but when my customer share site with guest user, it give us and error:
Something like this:
[SPLoaderError.loadComponentError]:***Failed to load component "12345-c123-a1be27-223a-xxxx0"(MyWebpart Name).
Possible fix path
A possible problem is guest users can’t acess to ClientSideAssets library on AppCatalog site, so one way is:
Enable external sharing on AppCatalog site
Break permissions on ClientSideAssets library and give reading permission for guest users
If don’t work, you can try also to restore inherits permission and put guest users inside readers group of app catalog site. In this case, guest can Access to all site resources as reader, but if it work you can continue investigate on problem.
Today, let’s understand how to filter SharePoint Items, by lookup column, from Power Automate flow.
FILTER BY LOOKUP COLUMN
In this Example, I created two lists: Projects and Tasks. Every tasks has lookup to project.
As we can see , we have “Project” column. This is our lookup column.
Create a flow
To to this example I create a Simple flow wiht manually trigger (keep mind…this is just an example…). My flow has one Actions (“Get Items”). Let’s see how to filter task by Project. One way is filter by title column of lookup (In this case I used Title). Another options is filter by Lookup ID.
Code to copy, filter by Value
InternalFieldName/Title eq ‘Lookup Value’
Or, filter by
internalFieldName/Id eq ‘Lookup Id’
Let’s see our flow:
Result: It get me one task, associated with “Project 1” .
Have a nice day!

Let’s learn how can we passing parameter to our Canvas Apps.
QUERY STRING PARAMETER
In this Example, I built a simple app to write a ticket in SharePoint List. In this case , I need to pass (from “external”) a parameter to our App, to set Ticket Type. My choose are:
To achievement this, we should use “Query String” and Param Function. Query String is part of url , used to passing data to application.
Step 1 – Get query string from App
To get query string, I used param function in OnVisible event of my Screen to get date and store it on local variable. I can’t use “On Start” event of app because UpdateContext is only available while you are currently on a screen. When the OnStart code is executed no screen has loaded yet.
In my Example, I used a Form with SharePooint list as Datasource . My field “Ticket Type” is Choose field. To set value as default, I set Default property of datacard, only if the form is in “insert mode”. Why? because if we are in view or in edit, we need to see data of item, not our parameter. So:
Hi, Today I want to explain how to implement “try-catch” (and “Finally” also if you need). It’s very simple…basically you should add “scope” , put actions inside, add another “scope” to manage error…let me show:
1) Add “Main” scope with your actions inside:
2) Add another scope. I called it “Catch” …it contains some actions to execute if error in “Main” scope should occur:
Now, we must configure “Run after” on this scope to execute it in case of error:
If you want , you can add also “Finally” scope to execute some actions in any case…your flow should be appears like this:
That’s all! Personally I use these scope to write log in case of error and success also.
“Are SharePoint Lists better then Excel Files?” or “Why shloud I use a SharePoint list intead Excel Files?”
These are 2 of the most asked question of my customers/students.
First of all, in my opinion there isn’t “best technology” or best “solutions” for all problems. There is more appropriate solution for your problem (or budget 🙂 ), so the “key” is: know different options to choose the most appropriate.
With these premises, let’s me explain some reasons why, personally, generally I prefer SPO List, intead Excel files.
List item versioning. SharePoint can store N versions on your list item, so you can see differents beetwneen versiones and restore previus version of item. Isn’t this cool?
Set item level permissions. You can decide , for each list item, who can see or edit it.
Different views. You can create different views of list. Users can create personal view with filters ,group or sort by columns.
Save author, last modified user, created date , last edit date. Automatically, for each rows.
Better integration with Power Automate & Power Apps, so your simple list becomes part of business process.
