Manual Installation Step 3: Run ShortPoint SPFx Installation from Dashboard in Office 365

You are almost done with the installation! All that is left to do is to run ShortPoint SPFx Installation from the ShortPoint Dashboard. This step will create the required SharePoint lists and will add ShortPoint JavaScript and CSS files to the site and other utilities.


Before we begin

Required permissions

  • You only need to be a Site Owner if you want to install ShortPoint on a specific site only. 
  • You have to be a Site Collection Administrator for you to be able to install ShortPoint on the entire site collection.

On the Site Contents page, you will see two ShortPoint SPFx items:

Click ShortPoint SPFx - Install Now! to open the ShortPoint Dashboard.

Note: The ShortPoint SPFx - Install Now! usually takes between 30 seconds to 10 minutes to appear. If you see dimmed (disabled) ShortPoint icons, please wait a bit more and reload your page. 

Step 3: Run ShortPoint SPFx installation

In the ShortPoint Dashboard, click Installation.

Installation button

In the ShortPoint Dashboard, you will see two installation options: 

  1. Site Collection Scope Installation: This allows you to install ShortPoint on all sites and subsites within the site collection. If it is disabled, it will only install ShortPoint on the current site. 
  2. Install for Classic Pages: This allows you to install ShortPoint for both Classic and Modern ShortPoint pages. By default, this option is disabled because scripting capabilities must first be enabled. Make sure to enable scripting capabilities before you proceed with this option.  Otherwise, you will receive an error.
