Code of Conduct

This project has adopted the Microsoft Open Source Code of Conduct. For more information, see the Code of Conduct FAQ or contact with any additional questions or comments.

Question or Problem?

Please do not open GitHub issues for general support questions as the GitHub list should be used for feature requests and bug reports. This way we can more easily track actual issues or bugs from the code and keep the general discussion separate from the actual code.

If you have questions about list formatting, feel also free to use following channels for having an open discussion with the community and engineering.

Typos, Issues, Bugs and contributions

Whenever you are submitting any changes to the SharePoint repositories, please follow these recommendations.

  • Always fork repository to your own account for applying modifications
  • Do not combine multiple changes to one pull request, please submit for example any samples and documentation updates using separate PRs
  • If you are submitting multiple samples, please create specific PR for each of them
  • If you are submitting typo or documentation fix, you can combine modifications to single PR where suitable

Submitting changes as pull requests

Here's a high level process for submitting new samples or updates to existing ones.

  1. Sign the Contributor License Agreement (see below)
  2. Fork the main repository to your GitHub account
  3. Create a new branch for your fork for the contribution based on dev branch
  4. Include your changes to your branch
  5. Commit your changes using descriptive commit message - These are used to track changes on the repositories for monthly communications, see October 2017 as an example
  6. Create a pull request in your own fork and target 'master' branch
  7. Fill up the provided PR template with the requested details

note. Delete the feature specific branch only AFTER your pull request has been processed.

  • You will need to have a README file for your sample, which is based on provided template under the Samples folder. Please copy this template and update accordingly. README has to be named as with capital letters.
    • You will need to have a picture of the sampe in practice in the README file ("pics or it didn't happen"). Preview image must be located in the sample folder and should be named as screenshot.png.
  • README template contains specific tracking image as a final entry in the page with img tag by default to This is transparent image, which is used to track popularity of individual samples in GitHub.
  • When you are submitting new sample solution, please name the sample solution folder accordingly
    • Folder name should start by identifying type of the field or data which sample is for - like "number-", "text-", "date-", "image"
