Use a SharePoint Intranet as your information and communication hub to enable teams to work efficiently together anytime, anywhere, and from any device.
SharePoint has powerful capabilities that connect your workforce and accelerate your digital transformation to propel growth. SharePoint allows you to inform and engage with employees, find people, expertise and content faster, collaborate and share with confidence, transform business processes and harness collective knowledge. A SharePoint intranet is a great way to reduce paper by replacing common forms with electronic forms and automated workflow processes.
Office 365 Groups
One of the biggest differences between classic and modern team sites is that modern team sites are connected to Office 365 Groups. Groups let you choose a set of people that you wish to collaborate with and easily set up a collection of resources for those people to share; resources like a shared Outlook inbox, shared calendar or a document library for collaborating on files. You don’t have to worry about manually assigning permissions to all those resources because adding members to the group automatically gives them the permissions they need to the tools your group provides. Office 365 resources are more flexible, and are easier to work with.
When you create a classic team site from the team site template, web parts for Announcements, Calendar, and Links are automatically added to the home page, while on a modern site, you get a section for News, Quick Links, Site Activity, and a Document Library.
Using company branding on SharePoint team sites is very common, and for classic sites you may have used site themes, alternate CSS, and master pages. While these elements are not supported on modern sites, there are new and easier ways to perform site customisation and branding. As an example, you can quickly and easily customise the colours of your SharePoint site by changing the theme to reflect your professional style and brand.
Pages and Web Parts
Modern pages provide a fast, easy way to build responsive pages using the functionality of modern web parts. Pages are similar to classic web part pages and publishing pages, but are less structured and easier to create.
Lists and Libraries
The default list and library experience is optimised for your most common tasks. Copy and more files using the command bar. Pin documents, add files as links, filter and sort easily, and apply formatting to columns.
SharePoint communication sites are a great place to share information with others. You can share news, reports, statuses, and other information in a visually compelling format.
