Setting up Microsoft Graph Integration for SharePoint Online

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 through 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.  



  1. ShortPoint is already installed in your SharePoint Online (Office 365) environment.
  2. Your ShortPoint version is upgraded to 6.7.x.x or greater.
  3. ShortPoint User Account: Make sure you are logged in with your ShortPoint User Account. 
  4. You have Azure Active Directory Administrator access (Global Administrator or Privileged Role Administrator)
  5. You already have some Teams created in your organization.
  6. Activate any new license available. Go to ShortPoint Dashboard -> Licensing and click Activate if a new license is available

Step 1: Insert ShortPoint design element

Place the cursor into the desired space on your page and open the ShortPoint Page Builder. Choose the design element you will use. In our example, we have selected Teams from the list of design elements. You will see the settings of the element opened.

STEP 2: Grant Microsoft Graph permissions

In case that Teams Design Element does not have permissions to access your Teams data, you will see a warning in the Teams Design Element Settings Tab. In order to fix the problem, 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 on 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 Teams Design Element again on your page.

STEP 3: Insert the Element on the page

Once you have successfully connected Microsoft Graph, you will be able to add the Teams design element on your page.

That’s it! You can now easily connect Office 365 application content to your SharePoint Online pages.
