Before We Begin

  • Make sure that you are on Office 365 (SharePoint Online) or SharePoint 2019 On-Premise environment.

  • It is important that you already downloaded and installed the ShortPoint New Upgrade SPFx (7.1.5.xx+) package. If not, you may go through this Tutorial: How to Upgrade to ShortPoint SPFx 7.1.5.xx Version (New Upgrade) we have prepared for you.

What is Auto Upgrade?

Auto Upgrade is a feature that can be enabled for ShortPoint New Upgrade. With this feature, ShortPoint will be updated automatically whenever a new version is released. You do not need to open the ShortPoint Dashboard anymore to upgrade to the latest version.

Once you upgraded your sites to the New Upgrade version for the first time, Auto Upgrade option will be enabled by default.

INFO: You may also preview any ShortPoint version using the ?sp-preview=<version> query string at the end of your URL. If you want to know how it works, please check Preview Any ShortPoint SPFx Version on a Page Using URL Parameter.

Rollback option

Rollback option is not available for Auto Upgrade, since it is designed to keep your sites on the latest ShortPoint version.
