Start using the new SharePoint communication sites
A few months ago, Microsoft announced SharePoint Communication Sites – a new way to easily create and distribute mobile-friendly content on SharePoint. Since the announcement, these new communication sites have been rolling out to Office 365 customers and they are a great new feature to start taking advantage of. These new sites are a simple and effective way to share your organisation’s news and messages in a secure way. Rather than being built with the administrators in mind, these sites are easy to use to allow end/super users to create engaging pages and content within SharePoint without requiring coding or SharePoint knowledge.
While the flexibility is empowering for any user, it is important to keep permissions locked down and to ensure you have a governance plan in place to avoid sites being created by anyone – causing disorganised and unmanaged content to multiply. With this in mind, if you are considering taking advantage of communication sites then it’s worth having a steering group or a small team of super users assessing its suitability and how these sites could be managed, developed and governed.
When you’re ready then getting started is easy! Here’s our guide below to start making the most of communication sites.
