TABLE OF CONTENTS


Before we begin

  • This article is for Office 365 SharePoint Environment.
  • This step is required if you want to use ShortPoint on Classic SharePoint sites.
  • The solution below will enable scripting capabilities on all Classic SharePoint sites.
  • It takes about 24 hours for this change to take effect.  You can enable scripting capabilities with PowerShell if you do not want to wait that long.
  • ShortPoint SPFx does not require enabling scripting capabilities if you want to use ShortPoint on modern pages only.


This article is not going to work if:

  • You want to enable scripting capabilities on a specific site only.
