Introducing the CollaboGraph by Puzzlepart

Took me long enough, but I finally put the winning entry from “Battle of the Graph @ Ignite 2015” out in the store for everyone on Office 365. And of course, it’s free!

Search for CollaboGraph in the SharePoint Store and you should be able to add it in seconds.


CollaboGraph is a SharePoint hosted add-in (could have been a SPA on any form really) which uses the Office Graph to see how people are collaborating, or actually co-authoring, on documents. The more documents you co-author with a colleague, the shorter the line in the graph. The more documents you co-author on, the larger the bubble.

It uses public signals from the graph to pull inn who you work with, and who they again work with, to cast a net of people to graph out. Next it pulls in all documents collaborated on by those people, and output’s a force directional graph along with some funny collaboration statistics.

The project was also my first real venture into TypeScript and without it I would not have been able to write the app in the time I did. A huge time saver, no doubt. And for those curious about the code, get it from my github repo at

If you want to see a demo, check out the video from BRK3154 from Ignite, starting at 35:00. Enjoy!
