Changing an Office 365 group from Private to Public; from the Office 365 group admin itself VS from the sharepoint permsion setting popup

In Office 365 groups we have 2 approaches (at-least 2 approaches) to change the group from private to public OR from public to private:

  1. From SharePoint site >> site permission, as follow:-

enter image description here

  1. From office 365 group admin, as follow:-

enter image description here

now i have noted in the first approach if we change the Group from Private to Public, the SharePoint will add “Everyone except external” inside the SharePoint members group, while using the second approach this will not happen.. so is my assumption correct? and why we get this behavior, although we should be doing the same thing at the end…

office 365 – Authentication with SharePoint Online in Microsoft 365 and simple console application

I need your help with my small application.

I need to create easy console application which will sign into Share Point Online and download some documents from library.

When I am doing this on older SharePoint version it works fine. Unfortunately, its not working on SharePoint Online in Microsoft 365.

string userName = "";
            string passwordPlain = "passw0rd";
            string baseUrl = "";

            var passWord = new SecureString();

            foreach (char c in passwordPlain) 

            var creds = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(userName, passWord);
                var authDiguestToken = GetRequestDigest(creds, baseUrl);

                Console.WriteLine("Result " + authDiguestToken);
            catch (Exception ex)
                Console.WriteLine("nn Exception: nn " + ex.Message);

So in this example I am going to get token value and display on console.

 private static string GetRequestDigest(SharePointOnlineCredentials creds, string baseUrl)
            var client = new RestClient(baseUrl + "_api/");
            var digestRequest = new RestRequest("contextinfo", Method.POST);
            digestRequest.AddHeader("Accept", "application/json");

            //authentication cookie
            client.CookieContainer = new CookieContainer();
            client.CookieContainer.SetCookies(new Uri(baseUrl), creds.GetAuthenticationCookie(new Uri(baseUrl)));

            //I'm using dynamic jsut for demo, it's better to use some strongly typed class  
            return client.Execute<string>(digestRequest).Data;

So in this case I am using cookie, not sure why its not working with other SharePoint Online in Microsoft 365.

Is there something special which needs to be done to get authenticated?
Please help


javascript – SharePoint Online (Office 365) – AutoResolve people picker with current user and detect change in people picker value

I am trying to implement a solution in SharePoint Online by customizing the NewForm.aspx page of a out of the box Calendar List using JavaScript with the following requirements:

  1. When page loads, a people picker field gets automatically populated with the current logged in user (and automatically resolved)
  2. If a the user changes the value of the people picker, I want to be able to detect the value change event so that I can apply some custom logic

For the first requirement, I was able to populate the people picker field but not automatically resolve it.
For the second requirement, I was not able to detect the change on the poeple picker’s value.

In the end you can find the code I am using and it contains several approaches on second requirement that I was still not able to put any of them to work.

The problem seems to be accessing the people picker object itself using the following code:

var peoplePickerDiv = jQuery("div(title='People Picker')");
var peoplePickerDivId = peoplePickerDiv.attr('id');
var peoplePickerObject = SPClientPeoplePicker.SPClientPeoplePickerDict(peoplePickerDivId);

In runtime, the peoplePickerObject is always null.

In the research I made on the Internet, any solution to address both requirements used the above code, i.e., getting a SPClientPeoplePicker object by accessing SPClientPeoplePickerDict supplying the people picker’s Id. I confirmed that the id I am supplying is correct.

NOTE: I was able to successfully use the same approach against on-prem SharePoint 2013 but not with SharePoint Online. Not sure if HTML of the people picker changed or there is a different behavior of the JavaScript API to get SPClientPeoplePicker objects in SharePoint Online in comparison with on-prem SharePoint 2013.

Did someone found the same problem and was able to solve it?

Code I am using:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/clientpeoplepicker.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/autofill.js"></script>

sharepoint online – How to use the Office 365 profile hover card (defaultHoverField) without a person column

On my Sharepoint List, I want to store different team members in something like a text column instead of a person column so that I can handle inactive users or users who have left the organization, while still keeping the default hover effect with the full persona card by using column formatting via defaultHoverField. Is there any way to achieve this?
(eg. by mimicking the person field data in array (“Id”: “…”,
“AccountEnabled”: true,…) to work with defaultHoverField)

office 365 – Sharepoint Lists – Help creating a Traffic Light Calculated Formula & Format for Dates

I am trying to create a Traffic Light system within SharePoint Online (Office 365) using JSON.

The dates should run in accordance to said, Traffic light signal.

What I’m trying to do:

If “Todays Date” is GREATER THAN the (End Date) = RED LIGHT

If “Todays Date” is approaching (or is equal to (3 DAYS away from)) the (END DATE) = YELLOW LIGHT

If “Todays Date” is GREATER than 3 DAYS or more away from (END DATE) = GREEN LIGHT

I have read multiple posts for potential solutions. But haven’t found any success. The JSON code below is what I currently have. From what I can tell the last snippet of the code runs successfully if(($RD) == 'Approaching','','purple')))" as well as everything else. However the remainder of the IF statements aren’t (=if(($RD) == 'No', 'green', if(($RD) == 'Yes', 'red',.

(RD) Remaining Days Calculated Formula:

=TODAY()>(End Date)

Format Reference Column

      "$schema": "",
      "elmType": "div",
      "txtContent": "=if(($RD) == '', '', '•')",
