Search with tab webpart became Combined webpart
Until now, the search with tab webpart allowed to define and display many search results behind tabs.
Today, we added a new display to display content as a wall. That is why we renamed the webpart
The actual configuration of the search with tab webpart doesn't change: https://support.powell-software.com/hc/en-us/articles/360019304840.
We created a new webpart to let the user choose the favorite links he wants to display on a page.
The webpart is in the catalog in the following category: "Contextualization > User personalization."
Make as favorite
We added in some search displays an option to let the user directly add the content in his favorite.
When the user clicks on the star, the content will be added to his own list of favorite applications.
The complete list of views that handle his new feature :
- News slider
- News slider (center mode)
- News slider (with navigation)
- News Tiles (Large display)
- News tiles
- Aggregate content Tiles
- Application Tiles 2
Ready-to-use web parts
As a contributor, it's now possible to save a webpart configuration to reuse it on another page or context.
This can be found on search and graph webpart
In the "Ready to use" part, contributors can apply an existing configuration. The configuration will be changed by clicking on the "Apply" button.
Then in the bottom part, the contributor can choose to save the configuration as a template to be reused :
We added a new widget view for the search webpart named "Discussion - Thread."
This view is dedicated to Powell discussion content type and displays the message posted by a user and if it's a new discussion or a reaction.
New Lunar Year and Australian day seasonal theme
Standard webpart people
Until now, we have only two options possible for the layout of the standard People webpart.
Microsoft changed to add a new type of layout for this webpart.
This is why, now, you will find the same layout option :
Important information for the next release!
From the next release (4th February), we'll integrate a label in your pages' titles indicating that they have been duplicated or auto-translated.
You can duplicate or auto-translate your content to other languages when creating a page from the Powell Wheel in a site with Powell variations or SharePoint translations.
To inform users that the page has been duplicated or auto-translated, a text will be added to the title of the duplicated/translated page. You can, of course, edit the page and remove this label after the creation. This change will be applied to both publishing and modern sites.
In case of duplication :
- The label "(Duplicated from [SOURCE LANGUAGE])" will be added at the end of the title. The text will be added in the language from which the page has been created.
- Example: You create a page from a French variation with French MUI and duplicate it to the English variation. The text added at the end of the title in the English news will be in French "(Dupliqué à partir de French)."
In case of translation :
- The label "(Automatically translated into [TARGET LANGUAGE])" will be added at the end of the title. The text will be added in the target language of the page.
- Example: You create a page from a French variation and translate it to the English variation. The text that will be added at the end of the title in the English news will be in English "(Automatically translated into English)."
