Update metadata on SharePoint documents and folders
You have SharePoint managed metadata terms used in document libraries and you decide to update the label of a term. You can easily do so in the term store and wait for the change to take effect. All documents will display the new term label after the label change is propagated from the term store to the sites.
But what if you want to update a specific term, to a different term that already exists in the store? If you only have a small number of documents and folders that need to be updated, you can simply do the update manually. But if you need to update a large number of items, unfortunately, this is a scenario that will require some automation.
The following script will do the job for you.
SharePoint folder filter SPFx extension
In modern SharePoint libraries containing large collections of folders, it may be difficult to navigate your way around the folder hierarchy. The library loads batches of 30 folders as you scroll down the list, making it difficult to find a specific item.
Would it not be great if you could easily filter the collection of folders?
You can try to use search to find the desired item quicker, but if you have content with similar names, the suggested results are not always relevant.
I built a super simple SharePoint Framework list extension to filter folders and address this limitation. Check the video below to see the SharePoint folder filter extension in action.Continue reading “SharePoint folder filter SPFx extension”

Convert PnP TaxonomyPicker selection to update value
I am a big fan of the PnP reusable controls and previously delivered some sessions about them. You can find the slides for one session on this blog post. One of my favorite controls is the TaxonomyPicker control, which I often use in custom forms to update list columns.
When using the PnP TaxonomyPicker reusable control to let the user select values for a managed metadata list field in SharePoint, you have to convert that selection into an object that you can then pass to the REST api when updating the field value.Continue reading “Convert PnP TaxonomyPicker selection to update value”
