Part 1: Create the Footer from ShortPoint Generator Page

This guide will walk you through how to create a footer using ShortPoint Generator. This is the first of our three-part ShortPoint Generator guide.


Before We Begin

  • To use ShortPoint Generator, make sure that you have ShortPoint installed. (Here are the installation guides for Office 365, SharePoint 2019, and SharePoint 2013/2016).
  • Make sure that you have the latest version of ShortPoint for your environment. ShortPoint Generator is available in ShortPoint versions and above.
  • If you are using SharePoint 2013, 2016, or have ShortPoint SPFx version 7, the interface will be slightly different but will have the same features.
