The Revamped Discuss Now SPFx Extension

The revamped Discuss Now Extension is a SharePoint Framework Extension that allows you to quickly discuss a Document in a SharePoint Document Library or a List item in a SharePoint List with colleagues on Microsoft Teams.


This was inspired by an open-source extension developed by Paolo Pialorsi which can be found here

The extension was developed to make employees create a new meeting to discuss about a document selected in the current list view of a document library. Users can create a meeting with a subject and meeting time.

Revamped Discuss Now

The revamped version has a refreshing new look that integrates SharePoint modern experience with Microsoft Teams to enable users to discuss about a document with other employees quickly.
