Elio Struyf
Back in January, I wrote an article about how you could retrieve the site URL of an Office 365 Group.

Elio Struyf
We all get a lot of emails every day. Did you know that some of these emails are being tracked by others? There are various kinds of email trackers available, most of them work by inserting hidden images and/or changing the links in the mail by a tracking prefix. This allows them to see when The post Get to know who is tracking your mails via the Microsoft Graph and Azure Functions appeared first on Elio Struyf. [read].

Sharing my managed metadata refiner display template
Elio Struyf
Do you have a refiner template that shows the refiners based on the hierarchy of a term set, or can you explain how to build it? These are probably two of the most asked questions I received the last couple of months/years. Back in 2015 I created such a template, but never shared it until The post Sharing my managed metadata refiner display template appeared first on Elio Struyf. [read].

Creating and renewing your Microsoft Graph webhook subscriptions
Elio Struyf
Webhooks are an easy way to do something when an event occurs. For example, when you want to do something when a new email is received.

Returning other types of data like HTML via JavaScript Azure Functions
Elio Struyf
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a simple Office add-in which just added a custom add-in command. An add-in command only requires that you specify an URL to a page / HTML file to make it work. As it would be overkill to create a website for just that one file, I thought about The post Returning other types of data like HTML via JavaScript Azure Functions appeared first on Elio Struyf.

These days I use Azure Functions quite a lot for automating things. Since the general availability of Azure Functions which was announcement back in November 2016, they are becoming even more popular and are being used for various kinds of things.

Elio Struyf
In January, a colleague and I built our first Outlook module.

These modules are The post How to define add-in commands in an Outlook module appeared first on Elio Struyf. [read].

Elio Struyf
One important piece of information I required for an application which I am currently building is the site URL of the Office 365 Group site.
