Throughout SharePoint, the user experience is consistent: when you see a person's name, you can mouse over their name to get more information and/or connect with them.
The goal is to allow developers to build SPFx web parts which handle displaying a user profile in a manner that is consistent with the out-of-the-box web parts.
For example, if I wanted to build an employee directory web part, a org chart web part, or an office map web part.
A real life scenario: we recently had to build a web part for a student portal for a large college which shows a student's advisor. We used the Fabric UI Persona Card, but we wanted to make it easier for students to get in touch with their advisors, book an appointment, etc. We had to write everything with custom code, but it would have been a lot easier with the LPC.
I hope this answers your question?Hugo Bernier shared this idea ·
