At the SharePoint Conference yesterday, Microsoft announced the new SharePoint home sites that will enable organisations to develop intelligent landing sites with just a few clicks. SharePoint home sites can include news, events, content, conversations and video. Since home sites are responsive, they will look beautiful on different devices ranging from mobile devices to Surface Hub.
SharePoint home sites highlights:
- News can come from many different sites in your organization but often you want to have an “official” or “authoritative” site for organization news. Home sites allow you to balance organization news, which is distinguished with a visual cue, with personalized, relevant content that can be targeted to employees.
- Engaging experiences are key to the intelligent intranet and home sites allow you easily embed conversations, video, and content from Microsoft 365 and more so you can connect with the information and activities that matter to you, across all your devices.
- Integrated search, powered by artificial intelligence, allows deeply personalized insights to be surfaced to make employees more productive and take advantage of the collective knowledge from your organization both inside and outside of Microsoft 365.
- Robust menu options, such as the recently released megamenu, allow you to create a visually engaging navigation experience that can show multiple levels at the same time. This enables you to better organize and showcase the related content and sites from across your organization.
