We got this question many times, and its time now to explain it for everyone as well :)
You can connect any design element (ShortPoint) with any SharePoint list or library. You have to know also, that you can select the list view.
What is list view?
Then follow these simple steps:
Now in ShortPoint, make sure to select the view when connecting with the calendar.
Hope this will help
Can this work for files in the same list but separated by folders? Like in the main folder, I have folder A and B. But I create a view showing only everything labeled with Public. But I want to limit that list to 5.
Thank you for your question.
We would kindly ask you to check this How to show both Files and Folders of the Document Library in your ShortPoint element article. Second step of this article shows you how to limit the number of items.
