Read more in the article about the release:
Increased Modern UI functionality with new webparts
One of the key aspects of this release, is centred around the new webparts for search and people in Modern UI. These webparts support an easy and efficient way of performing search within the WorkPoint solutions.
To search and find data quickly, has always been a key component of WorkPoint’s DNA. For instance, The WorkPoint Express plug-in for Office 365 is a great way to find, archive and structure e-mails and documents within SharePoint. However, with this new and improved search webpart, organisations are allowed much more comprehensive and detailed search results. WorkPoint’s Technical Product Manager Allan Juncher Pedersen also highlights the improved user experience:
“Our users appreciate simplicity; therefore, it is key to produce webparts that can assist in performing both advanced search and connecting people across departments. Employees are now shown information from everywhere across the tenant. The WorkPoint solution allowing them to work more productively. As well as they spend less time and effort on finding knowledge and data on projects, cases and contracts“.
A great thing about this is that both webpart is highly customisable. The search webpart can be set up to show the columns that you want. Those columns data for the items searched for will show up in the search results. Meanwhile, the people webpart can be quickly be configurated to show people working on the current project or case.

Close and collaborative Microsoft integration
For WorkPoint, it is of utmost importance to, not only be 100% aligned with Microsoft’s product strategy, but to be completely integrated with the Microsoft Portfolio. Therefore, Allan Juncher Pedersen also adds, that it is a great step that WorkPoint now supports integrations with Microsoft Flow and PowerApps.
“The integration with PowerApps and Flow makes it possible to have one central flow which can be called from each document and provides another step in creating a simple experience, when setting up WorkPoint solutions and design. It is important that WorkPoint is closely integrated with the Office 365’s toolbox. This allows us to provide a collaborative environment with a highly intuitive and flexible interface.
In the future, we will focus more on the development and integration with PowerApps and Flow, as these present great possibilities for WorkPoint”.
A typical use case for the integration and use of Microsoft PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. This is in relation to approval processes for documents, e.g. when sending a document for approval by another person. Before this integration, this scenario would require a registered flow on all document libraries where this process is needed.
In the release, the Microsoft Flow will replace the standard SharePoint workflows, while the Microsoft PowerApps will be used for creating formulas and small applications.
