PointFire 365 v2.4.2.0 Release
Posted by Martin Laplante on 09 April 2021 01:02 PM

This is a recommended update release for PointFire 365 for SharePoint Online

This release adds support for new and changed Microsoft functionality and corrects a number of issues in version 2.4.1.  It also corrects some significant issues that are currently only found in the Targeted Release version of SharePoint Online, and that may appear in the General Availability version at an unknown date.  If you were provided with an interim release numbered v2.4.1.x, you should update to this release.

New and Changed Features

  • Supports the fast localization of the new App Bar and Global Navigation features when the user language changes.

Note: Microsoft's current release contains what we consider to be a bug: in order for the language of the Global Navigation to change, not only must the language be present on the "Home site" which contains the navigation, it must also be present on the root site, which otherwise plays no role. The workaround is that you must ensure that the root site has at least all of the languages that the Home site supports.

  • Added PowerShell script to add/upgrade both PointFire365 modern and classic app in hub site as well as in associated sites : UpgradeAppHubAndAssociateSites.ps1

Resolved Issues

  • When clicking "remove multilingual" from a library, the page would sometimes reload in a loop.
  • When executing "Clear Cache" for one site, other sites would sometimes show webparts that should display only in another language.
  • Refresh loop on some screens that filter by language code "pt-br" and possibly other language codes that contain a hyphen.
  • Hub navigation language did not immediately change when language was changed, due to a recent change in SharePoint's caching of hub navigation.
  • Additional messages in console to assist with diagnosing issues.


PointFire makes SharePoint truly multilingual and lets your users collaborate in their language.  Two different users going to the same page on the same site will each see it almost entirely in their language, both UI and content, without using Variations.

To get your copy, go to and log in or create an account.

The fully-featured trial version can be downloaded for free and can be used for development and testing, with some pre-sale support.
