How to add a simple preview in libraries in SharePoint

#M365Hack - How to add a simple preview in a library in SharePoint

After my last #M365Hack where I showed you how you can create a Dynamic preview for documents in SharePoint a few people reached out and asked about an easy way to just have a simple preview of a document or image in a library.

Although this trick isn’t new at all, many of my customers found it valuable, which is why I want to share it here as well.

❓ Question: Luise, can you build…

a preview for images and documents in a SharePoint library?

❗ Answer: Yes of course, we need…

an additional column (single line of text will do the job) and name this column Thumbnail - thats it. #Magic 🔮
