24 MAY 2019
SharePoint so far has supported businesses tremendously by playing its best roles as a corporate intranet, Collaboration, Document Management, and Document Storing platform. SharePoint 2013 and 2016 is quite popular among businesses but Microsoft has once again proved its commitment towards its customers by releasing the all-new SharePoint 2019. With its recent release, the new version has already created a considerable buzz among both on-premise and hybrid users. So, are you ready to unveil the brand-new features of SharePoint 2019? Let’s dig in!
- The amazing UX features
SharePoint 2019 has brought in some modern User Experience enhancements in line with SharePoint Online which includes better collaboration and communication capabilities. The modern features are making the collaborative platform friendlier to users. The Home Screen on SharePoint 2019 now has one central dashboard for all news and sites you care about. The SharePoint Start Page has a new experience where users can find and access sites within their organization.
- Modern Lists and Libraries
The lists and libraries in team sites are optimized for teams to access most common tasks, copy and move files, pin documents and make use of filters and sort features. The modern libraries are aligned with UI fabric of OneDrive. Another cool feature is that a user can change the preview of the libraries to a tile view.
- Improvements on Team Sites, Team Pages
Communication Sites are a place where members can share stories, news, and stream messages to other people. The new feature enables users to view five items which include text, URLs, and images so that the most important news and content draw the attention of the users. A user can also be able to connect a new group in Office 365 to an existing SharePoint team. The SharePoint 2019 upgrade from SharePoint 2016 will remain with Classic Team Sites but you can make use of modern team site templates to create modern team sites.
- Site Creation made quick and easy
This feature is reducing the long click-through process in Settings links by adding a modern Site Creation interface that allows users to create sites themselves through GUI. Users can navigate SharePoint applications using the Waffle. Unlike SharePoint 2016, this version is faster with specific templates.
Companies who have massive on-premise libraries will be delighted to learn that SharePoint 2019 has brought noteworthy improvements to OneDrive Sync Client that were available only on cloud. This feature allows OneDrive Sync Client support to both team sites and personal sites. What’s more? The users can enable push notifications which will help in creating a reliable and fast synchronization experience.
