Demo: Weather Web Part in SharePoint Online
In this demo, I will show you how to configure the weather web part in SharePoint Online page step by step:
Step: Create a modern site page to host the weather web part.
Click on the “gear” icon on your Communication or Team site, then click on the “Add a page” link menu.
Select the template as “Blank” from the “From Microsoft” tab.
Click on the “Create page” button.
Name the page and save it.
By now, we have completed the page creation process. Now let’s add the weather web part to this page.
Step: Add the weather web part to the page.
Click on the “Add a new web part in column one” + icon.
Type the text “Weather” to search the weather web part.
Search weather web part in SharePoint Online
From the search results, click on the “Weather” web part. Then, we can see that the weather web part has been added to the page.
By now, we have learned how to add the weather web part to the SharePoint Online page. Now, let’s configure it.
Step: Configure the weather web part.
Once we add the web part, the very first thing we need to do is name the web part. Here I have given the name “Weather Report Webpart”, You can name something like this.
Then, click on the “Edit web part” icon to configure the weather web part. In the configuration part, we can only change the display temperature to either “Fahrenheit” or “Celsius”, We don’t have any other configuration that we can customize here. This is the limitation of the out-of-the-box web part in SharePoint Online.
Show current weather conditions on your page. Choose the units of temperature to display by default. Users can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius for their personal views.
- Here I have chosen the default selection, which is “Fahrenheit” .
Finally, add your location (you can just type a few characters of your location, and automatically the MSN service will list out the matching locations for your search). We can have many locations as per our needs.
In this demo, I have added four locations from the USA.
Once your location addition is completed, you can save the page or directly publish it for all other users on your web page. In the above weather web part demo, the data is coming dynamically from the MSN Weather service.
