Valo’s Tech Lead Tomi Tavela’s SP Editor announced as a finalist in the Best Community Contribution category at ESPC19

ESPCAwards2019 Finalists Tomi Tavela

One of the original Valo Team Members, Tech Lead and Mobile Developer Tomi Tavela is a Finalist in the category of “Best Community Contribution” with his SP Editor at the European SharePoint Community 2019 Awards!

SP Editor is a free Google Chome extension tool for all developers working with SharePoint. It includes features like PnPjs Console, Search and WebHooks bringing developing SharePoint to a more unified platform.

The tool was developed five years ago when one of the first Valo intranet in-a-box releases was being built. All the web parts were put up together using the tool as it made it so much faster and easier. Tomi felt he wanted to share the open-source tool with everyone in the community to advance the community and provide the developers with the possibility to enhance their initiatives and SharePoint.

The community has taken the tool in use and it has gained an average of 10 000 weekly users.


SP Editor is embraced by the whole community and now also recognized as a Finalist at the “Best Community Contribution“.

SP Editor is a free time project

Tomi is one of the main developers of the Valo Digital Workplace App and also the Valo Intranet App that was last year awarded as the Best Mobile Solution in the ESPC 2018 awards.

SP Editor is something Tomi, with the help of the community, keeps developing during his free time.

I wouldn’t be one of the finalists without the amazing SharePoint/O365 community! I learned everything from the community, the SP Editor project is my way of giving something back.
