SharePoint Roadmap Pitstop: December 2018

  • Podcast with Mark Kashman and Sean Squires (Senior program manager SharePoint engineering team) about site and page designs approaches. Lots of branding and templating improvements mentioned in the Blogpost as well.
  • Don’t miss to learn more about large amount of roadmap items
  • Personalized web parts are one of my highlights. Users can see recent documents, recent sites and news. Creates more relevance and helps to convince users which love their SP onPrem MySites
  • Microsoft Stream Playback now supported in the SharePoint Mobile App. Have you already tested Stream Mobile App?
  • Compliance and Security Peeps are going to love new feature to block downloads of shared links
  • Files uploaded to Yammer groups and conversations will be stored in the connected SharePoint document libraries – in your regional Geo Tenant (EU 🇪🇺 in my case). Relevant info for your compliance and data protection colleagues?
  • Scans with OneDrive are going to get enriched with Metadata. That’s going improve search result quality
  • New Location column for SharePoint lists powered by Bing is also going to improve search results. My FAST Search Heart is beating ♥. I have also seen strong use cases around Workflow Approvals with OneDrive Scans using cutting edge Azure AI technology. So it’s not only about Search here.
  • SharePoint admin center update includes managing group-connected sites, site activities, options to manage and configure hub sites, simplified configuration of sharing controls, options to allow for configuring default site creation properties, adjust policies, progress indicators etc
