Installation Step 3: Run ShortPoint SPFx Installation from Dashboard (SharePoint 2019)

The last step is to run ShortPoint Installation from ShortPoint Dashboard.
This step is required to create required SharePoint lists, add ShortPoint Javascript and CSS files to the site and other utilities.

Before You Begin

This article is for SharePoint 2019. Also, please make sure you have completed the previous step:

Required Permissions

  • If you want to install ShortPoint on one site only, you need to be the site owner.
  • If you want to install SharePoint on the entire site collection, you need to be site collection admin

Step 1: Go to Site contents


You will see two ShortPoint SPFx items, which is how it is expected to be: ShortPoint SPFx and ShortPoint SPFx - Install Now!

Step 2: Click ShortPoint SPFx - Install Now!

After clicking on ShortPoint SPFx - Install Now!, you will be navigated to ShortPoint Dashboard

  • In Classic Experience:

  • In Modern Experience:

I cannot find ShortPoint SPFx - Install Now!
Just refresh the page, and you should see the new App.

Step 3: Run ShortPoint SPFx Installation

In the ShortPoint Dashboard, choose Installation.

Press Install.


1) Install for classic pages (Recommended):  By default, ShortPoint will install ShortPoint for Classic and Modern SharePoint Pages. If you want to use ShortPoint on Modern Pages only, or you do not want to enable scripting capabilities on classic sites, then you can disable this option. Make sure you have enabled scripting capabilities on this site if you want to enable this option.

2) Site Collection Scope Installation (Recommended): If you added ShortPoint SPFx to the root site of the site collection, then you can install ShortPoint on all sites and subsites within this site collection. Click here for more information.

Wait until the installation finishes:

The green highlight will indicate that the installation went successfully and ShortPoint SPFx was completely and successfully installed:

Step 4: Activate You ShortPoint License

If you get the following message: ShortPoint is installed but currently disabled...
