Introducing Dynamic Connection Improvements for ShortPoint Events

Starting from version 6.9 enjoy more flexibility and control over ShortPoint Events.

Set up the connection in the ShortPoint Element and work less with SharePoint lists.

Now, creating new views for the SharePoint calendar is no longer mandatory.

Before we begin

  • This article is for ShortPoint SPFx users (both Office 365 and SharePoint 2019).
  • You need to have ShortPoint SPFx version or later.
  • The mentioned changes are not yet available in ShortPoint Farm Solution for SharePoint 2013/2016, but will be included with one of the nearest releases.

Items Limit (2) is back and will coexist with Days Limit (1) to give you more flexibility. 

For Recurring Events (3), you can now either expand  them to show all occurrences, or display only the nearest upcoming occurrence:

Days Limit feature from now on allows you to select between Day, Month and Year options:

add weeks

Timezone Preferences

Also, you can display the recurrence pattern in different languages:

Recurrence Tooltips

Also, we have added tooltips to help users figure out recurring events even better:
