The adenin 2023 Summer release: Better SharePoint apps, make custom apps and new share menu

The team has been very busy improving the adenin platform with new features, that make the work lives of our users better and better every day. Here’s a summary of all the new features that are now available on adenin:

Card maker for SharePoint & Viva

We’ve improved the experience of using the Card maker app that’s available for SharePoint or Viva. Along with the previous option to Add an Adaptive Card you can now also Add a connected Card which lets you directly connect to one of the many applications from our App Directory.

Furthermore Card maker now lets you toggle the title of a Card as well as a border to make it look more like Card with a slight drop shadow.

Connected search for SharePoint

We’ve now simplified how to use the Connected search web part in connection with PnP Modern Search, a popular search plugin library for SharePoint. Simply toggle the Connect with other web parts toggle and then select your PnP search input from the Pick an available source dropdown.

Share Cards with other apps

Adaptive Cards are designed to be portable so they can be embedded into other workplace tools with ease, for example to enhance your intranet or offer chatbot capabilities. With our new Share menu it is now easy to see all your options in one spot, either copy the unique Card Share URL or follow instructions for each companion channels like Microsoft Teams, WordPress, etc.

Upload your own apps

Despite our focus on having the broadest possible selection of apps in our App Directory, we recognize that organizations will always use more apps, sometimes built internally, than we can offer.

We understand how crucial it is for customers to have all their apps in their adenin, for it to truly become a dashboard users can rely on. So you can now create your own apps using an OpenAPI file, a standard format used by most RESTful APIs. Simply follow the prompts and adenin will establish a secure connection and provide you live data to your Adaptive Card project.

Unread state

We created a clever mechanism that detects when there is something new for you on a Card and put a little blue dot on it. This makes it easy for you to spot what’s relevant on your dashboard.

We filter out irrelevant changes, such as when older content changes, a list empties, etc. giving you the confidence that, from now on, the blue dot is an indicator that simply catches your eye.

To dismiss a blue dot, simply click on it. The unread state can be disabled for a Card by going to ⚙️ → Manage your Board and untick Subscribe to notifications.
