Microsoft expands roll-out of SharePoint Online team sites for Office 365 groups

When you create a group, Office 365 now gives a full-powered SharePoint team site in addition to a shared inbox, calendar, OneNote notebook and a Planner for task management. SharePoint team site comes with the ability to create additional pages—document libraries, lists and business apps. Last year, Microsoft announced that all existing Office 365 groups will be updated with their own team site.

Within a group’s team site, this roll out brings a new home page, features News for highlighting important content in the team, and the Activity web part for showing recently active content. These team sites also include our new responsive and powerful page authoring and consumption experience – all connected to the overall Office 365 group experience.

Microsoft yesterday announced that this feature is now beginning worldwide rollout. This next phase of the rollout will start Thursday, January 12, 2017, and is expected to complete to customers worldwide in 100% of production by the end of the month.
