SharePoint communication sites are beautiful, fast, mobile-ready intranet sites that let you reach a broad audience to keep people informed and engaged.
Microsoft Ignite – September 25-29, 2017
Ignite is sold out, but you can watch live streams from the event and catch up with breakout sessions which will be available for viewing on-demand.
SharePoint communication sites are a building block of the mobile, intelligent intranet. As a complement to team sites–which let your group share and work together–communication sites let you and your group share your work with a broader audience, across the organization. Use communication sites to:
- tell your story and keep your audience informed and up-to-date
- connect people to the services your group provides
- showcase your team and your work, product, event, or initiative
- publish policies and reports
And, thanks to deep integration with Yammer, you can engage people across the organization to:
- solicit feedback and ideas
- share best practices and learnings
- build communities of interest or practice
At the SharePoint Virtual Summit, we announced the vision for SharePoint communication sites.
This Microsoft Mechanics video introduces the feature and its capabilities.
SharePoint has always been at the heart of collaboration. With our vision of the mobile and intelligent intranet, we are now expanding the tools to deliver an out of the box experience for broad, internal communications.
- the row *above* is aligning strangely–too much vertical space – what did I do wrong?
- where is the screened image in that row coming from? probably don't want that even on the ‘topic' template default
- similarly, where is the screened image in the top row coming from? Not sure we want that on the template either.
- Would there be a way to have no image and/or configure an image for that (top) row or for any specific row, and have the screen applied automatically?
- the “info box” parts, above, end up being too tight when an icon is not included. Can we either add logic to the css to provide some padding/margin when there is no icon, OR create an identical “part” that can be used when there's no icon? I guess I'd prefer the former
- I don't know how to configure “category posts” correctly. In this case, I'd like to filter for “Inform and Engage” (category) and/or “communications site” (tag, which I would apply to some articles as that's a new tag). The “category” dropdown list on the “Category Posts” part only seems to show a subset of categories.
- Let's not have the twitter feed in the template by default
