Getting Started with ShortPoint Footer for SharePoint

In this article, we will show you how to copy footer templates from ShortPoint's demos library and paste it into ShortPoint Generator. 


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.
