08 MAY 2020

SharePoint Framework

The Client

The client is a mid-sized Managed IT Service Provider in Chicago, USA providing fast and reliable nationwide IT support services to small and mid-sized businesses with a vast network of IT professionals.

The Need

The client had Microsoft SharePoint Online environment set up with several document libraries in place for business and client management.  The client needed to customize search box web part and its position for one of the huge document libraries accessed frequently by the employees. With a need to provide users with easy and quick navigation of information in the desired document library, the client approached Star Knowledge for customization of its massive SharePoint Online document library and enhance its user experience.

The Challenge

Configuring or adding a search box web part to SharePoint lists or libraries is easier while customizing it is not. To customize the search box position for a single library in the client’s SharePoint Online set-up was a challenge.

The Solution

With extensive experience in custom SharePoint Online development services, the skilled SharePoint developers at Star Knowledge leveraged the SharePoint Framework (SPFx) platform to customize the overall user experience of the desired document library. The Star Knowledge team of SharePoint developers created an application customizer (SharePoint Framework (SPFx) extension) which allows customization of different SharePoint locations for unique business / functional requirements.

Using the application customizer, our seasoned SharePoint experts wrote and applied the HTML and CSS scripts to the desired document library which required the search box web part customization.

Benefits Obtained

  • The search box appeared in the desired position for the document library in question
  • Easy and quick navigation
  • Enhanced user experience
