Sharepoint Quick Links Web Part

Quick Links Web Part
The Quick Links Web Part allows to easily set up a menu with icons based on a Sharepoint List.
The Web Part can be used with Sharepoint 2010, Sharepoint 2013, Sharepoint 2016 and Sharepoint 2019 (both "classic" and "modern" pages).

The Quick Links Web Part lets you:
  • use a Sharepoint Links List to define the menu items
  • choose a horizontal, vertical or a fixed or fluid grid layout with or without icons
  • define the menu tile width, height and color
  • use Font Awesome icons and/or Microsoft Office Fabric icons
  • CSS styles to customize the look and feel
  • apply Security trimming by Sharepoint groups or AD groups
  • define personal link menus (each user can configure his/her own menu)

Installation Instructions:

  1. download the Quick Links Web Part Installation Instructions (PDF file, see above) 
  2. either install the web part manually or deploy the feature to your server/farm as described in the instructions.
  3. configure the following Web Part properties in the Web Part Editor "Miscellaneous" pane section as needed:
    • Site Name: Enter the name of the site that contains the Sharepoint List:
      - leave this field empty if the List is in the current site (eg. the Web Part is placed in the same site)
      - enter a "/" character if the List is contained in the top site
      - enter a path if the List is in a subsite of the current site (eg. in the form of "current site/subsite")
    • List Name: Enter the desired Sharepoint List name containing the definition of the links. We recommend to use the Sharepont "Links" list template as a basis for the list.
      • Please note that the optional menu icons should be defined in a List column named "Icon".
      • To security trim the links, please add a column named "Group" (of type "Person or Group")
      • To add individual colors to each menu entry, please add a column named "Color" (enter the color values either as #rrggbb values or HTML color names)
      • To define the link target, please add a column named "Target" (of type "Choice") using the below 3 choices:

        - same window
        - new window
        - popup window

      The user can then edit the menu tile (if "Show Add Link Button" is checked) by pointing the cursor to the lower left corner of the menu tile to open the edit dialog popup:

      To enter a "Font Awesome" icon, enter the icon name using the "fa-" prefix as eg.
      The collection of available icons can be found here.

      To enter a "Microsoft Office Fabric" icon, enter the icon name using the "ms-" prefix as eg.
      The collection of available icons can be found here.
    • View Name: Optionally enter the desired List View of the list specified above. A List View allows you to specify specific data filtering and sorting. You will also need to include the "Title" and "URL" columns if you are displaying these fields (see below).
      Leave this field empty if you want to use the List default view.
    • Tile Width: define the menu tile width in pixels (default=100)
    • Tile Height: define the menu tile height in pixels (default=100)
    • Tile Gap: define the gap between menu tiles in pixels (default=8)
    • Number of Columns: restrict the (fluid) menu layout to the specified number of columns (set to "0" to specify a fully responsive layout)
    • Menu Item CSS Style: define the menu tile CSS styles as eg. the font color, font size and default background color.

    • Icon Layout: choose one of the below options:
      - none (do not display the icons)
      - Center
      - Icon Only
      - Left
      - Left Centered
    • Open Link in new window: check this field if you want the links to be opened in a new browser tab/window.
    • Show my Links only: optionally only displays the links created by the current user.
    • Show 'Add New Link' Button: optionally displays a button at the bottom to allow users to add new entries (the button is only visible of the current user has List "Contribute" permission).
    • License Key: enter your Product License Key (as supplied after purchase of the Quick Links Web Part license).
      Leave this field empty if you are using the evaluation version.

Can you post the details on the list that runs this web part?
12/3/2019 10:55 

you can start off with a simple „Links“ list (eg. a list based on the Sharepoint “Links” list template.
You then might want to add one or more of the below additional list columns:

  • Icon (of type “single line of text” to assign icons to the link tiles)
  • Group (of type “Person or Group” to security trim the links)
  • Color (of type “single line of text” or “choice” to assign individual colors to the tiles)
  • Target (of type „choice” to define the link’s behavior when clicking it)

Is it possible to add own icons (with the url to it)?
1/27/2020 12:03 
we have now added support for custom icons via the list's "Icon" field with version 1.0.6
The "Icon" field can either be of type "Hyperlink or Picture" or "Single line of text".
Please re-download the web part and then update the solution.

Is there a way of using an lists title column instead of the url?
2/28/2020 16:37 
did you enter the URL into the list's "Title" column ?
4/9/2020 08:03 

I tried changing the Menu Item CSS Style to font-size:10px;color:blue but it did not change it.

I must be doing something wrong.
4/9/2020 11:15 
could it be that you apply a custom Sharepoint CSS style sheet via your Master page where you set the "p" (paragraph) to a fixed font size ?
If yes, please apply the Quick Links CSS via the web part's "Options" setting as illustrated below:

css=.AEQLurl {font-size:10px !important;color:blue !important}

I'm looking to see if there is a way to display the notes within the "button" area but below the URL text?
6/30/2020 12:11 
we have now added the new "shownotes" option (to be added to the web part's "Options" setting):


which displays the content of the "Notes" field within the tile (as opposed to just as a tooltip):

Please re-download the web part and then update the solution.

i TRIED TO INSTALL THIS WP on a modern site in sharepoint 2019 in-prem.
I was able to install it in app catalog with no errors and aslo successfully added it to the modern page. But when i try to configure it, it says webpart not found in webpart gallery..Would highly apppreciate your help.
9/7/2020 15:23 
did you also install the web part in your farm (which is a necessary prerequisite) ?
9/8/2020 11:14 
thanks for a quick response...We are installing the sppkg package via the app catalog on a sp2019, on-prem. and that too on a modern site. so cannot install wsp. i was able to deploy the sqlviewer wp but when i try the quicklinks wp, it doesnt appear in the site collection features and hence connot configure as it cannt find it when i put the wp name. is it meant to only work on sponline and not on-prem.
9/8/2020 11:50 
please note that the sppkg package implements a "modern" (SPFx) web part that acts as a "proxy" to the on-premise farm based web part.
You thus will also need to install the farm version (even if you only intend to use the web part on "modern" pages).
