In order to automatically pull data from Office 365 applications, including Microsoft Teams, and display them on your ShortPoint Online page, ShortPoint will require appropriate permissions. These can be granted by integrating ShortPoint with Microsoft Graph. After reading this article, you will learn how to set up this integration.
Note: This article is to establish Microsoft Graph permissions for ShortPoint in your SharePoint Online pages. If you are looking to add Office 365 apps content to your Microsoft Teams tabs, please access the article on Setting Up Microsoft Graph Integration for Teams.

How to Set Up Microsoft Graph Integration via ShortPoint Dashboard
Follow these easy steps to establish Microsoft Graph integration through the ShortPoint Dashboard:
Step 1: Navigate to ShortPoint Dashboard and select Integrations
Go to SharePoint Settings, hit Site Contents, and select ShortPoint Dashboard. This will launch ShortPoint Dashboard in a separate window. From the options, press Integrations tile.
Step 2: Connect and grant Microsoft Graph permissions
Under Microsoft Graph, hit the Connect button.
You will be asked to pick an account you will use to establish the connection. Once selected, you will be presented with a list of permissions requested by this connection. Press the Accept button to proceed.
Your integration has been completed once you see a Reconnect button under Microsoft Graph instead of Connect.
You can now proceed to insert any Microsoft Graph-related Design Element on your SharePoint page.

You may also need to access the Integrations page while you are working with any Design Element that requires a connection to Microsoft Graph. You will find information or a warning in the Design Element Settings Tab regarding this requirement. In our example, we are using the Teams Design Element which requires a Microsoft Graph integration.
In order to fix it, you will need to navigate to ShortPoint Integrations Page and Connect Microsoft Graph. In case you already connected Microsoft Graph, just click Reconnect and Accept the new list of permissions granted for the ShortPoint App.
To navigate to the Integrations page, click the Integrations link from the warning that will be displayed on the Teams Design Element Settings Tab.
Note: After upgrading to ShortPoint Version 6.7.x.x or higher, you need to Reconnect Microsoft Graph once, in order to be able to use Teams Design Element.
After connecting Microsoft Graph, refresh the page and add the Design Element again on your page.
That’s it! You can now easily connect Office 365 application content to your SharePoint Online pages.
