Office 365 – New features and updates in week 14 2016

After a week without any updates:

6 April 2016

New SharePoint Document Library Experiences

Microsoft are changing the experience for SharePoint Online document libraries. You’ll begin seeing this new feature starting April 6.

In the new document library, documents can be displayed using classic or thumbnail views for a graphic look and feel. Libraries now support uploading folderNewDocLibs and links in addition to single files. Documents can be grouped with views directly from the library home screen, and selected documents can be pinned to a highlighted section at the top of the library. A new document information panel displays in concert with the document library, and allows easy access to previews, activity history, sharing, and metadata editing. Document management functions are moved to a clean, responsive menu pane and the Ribbon is removed from the UI.

  1. Thanks for this post. Taking a look at the new html source for these libraries it looks like a big change to how MS is handling the UI. Can you suggest any good Yammer groups who are focusing their discussion around these new changes. Any ideas on the impacts to custom branding?
