Here’s a short summary of today’s SharePoint Virtual Summit:

Extend Lists and Libraries with SPFx

Modern Pages did not allow any customizations with JavaScript (eg. things we could do with jslink). With the new SharePoint Framework it will be possible

SPFx – included in FP2 (fall)

The SharePoint Framework will we included in Feature Pack 2 for SharePoint 2016, which is scheduled for fall 2017.

Webhooks across sites and lists

Until now, Webhooks in SharePoint Online are only available in Document libraries, now they will be extended to sites and lists.

New SharePoint Admin center

The SharePoint Admin Center gets a nice makeover (still no Managed Paths though).

PowerApps forms inside of SharePoint Lists

Finally, we can talk of PowerApps as the legal successor of InfoPath. We will be able to use PowerApps forms inside of SharePoint lists and thus provide users with a rich and customizable UI.

Approval of Documents with Flow

Document Libraries will get the ability to easily submit documents for approval with Flow.
