ShortPoint Page Builder Live Mode Feature: ShortPoint Assistant

In Live Mode, we introduce a built-in resource that guides designers as they start using ShortPoint. We call it the ShortPoint Assistant.

It lists the essential steps that someone new to ShortPoint Live Mode must learn to fully take advantage of the features and benefits of the design solution. Each step features a quick video that outlines how to complete the step and other important information that can help the designer in building the best intranet site.

In this article, we show you the ShortPoint Assistant through an interactive tutorial and provide details about how to complete it or dismiss it.



  • You must have the latest version of ShortPoint SPFx installed on your SharePoint environment.
  • You must be a ShortPoint Designer with an active license.

Completing ShortPoint Assistant

As you start learning with the ShortPoint Assistant, here is key information you need to know to seamlessly complete it:

  • Start by editing the page and adding the ShortPoint web part

After successfully installing ShortPoint on your SharePoint site collection, you will be asked to insert a ShortPoint web part. This is a crucial step you need to complete to view the other steps in the ShortPoint Assistant.

  • There are two ways to complete a step
    • Automatic completion - most steps are automatically marked complete when you have done the step. They will appear greyed out and the radio button will be checked out.
    • Manual completion - some steps require you to click the Mark as done button to record its completion.
