- To use ShortPoint Generator, make sure that you have ShortPoint installed. (Here are the installation guides for Office 365, SharePoint 2019, and SharePoint 2013/2016).
- Make sure that you have the latest version of ShortPoint for your environment. ShortPoint Generator is available in ShortPoint version 188.8.131.52 and above.
- If you are using SharePoint 2013, 2016, or have ShortPoint SPFx version 7, the interface will be slightly different but will have the same features.
Step 1: Open ShortPoint Generator
Go to the site where you want to create a custom ShortPoint element and click the cogwheel icon.
From the drop-down, choose Site contents.
Select ShortPoint Dashboard.
From the ShortPoint Dashboard, click Generator.
Step 2: Create Custom ShortPoint Element
Name your custom element and select Element from the drop-down.
Build your custom element from scratch in the editor of the Generator page.
You can do that by clicking the plus icon.

NOTE: You can also copy an element or a few elements from our Demos Library, paste them into the editor, and make further edits.
Below is a sample custom element we made.
