Office 365 – SharePoint Online – Out of the box web parts on Team and Communication sites

Recently Microsoft has added a lot of new modern web parts to SharePoint Online. So if your approach is to keep customisation to the minimum then you might now find that your options to build a useful page have improved a lot.

Today I found out that there seems to be a difference between the web parts offered on a communication site and a team site.

Team sites

For team sites the web parts have been organised in 7 categories.

  • Featured
  • Text, media and content
  • Discovery
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Business and Intelligence
  • Connectors
  • Other

 

Communication sites

For Communication sites you will find a similar set of web parts:

  • Featured
  • Text, media and content
  • Discovery
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Business and Intelligence
  • Other

The connector category however doesn’t exist on Communication sites. At the first moment I thought that this could be because the communication sites are all about making pages that are beautiful rather than doing something like integrating with existing applications, but then I looked at the connectors that are offered.

I could imagine that some people would like to include these on communication sites.

  1. This looks like the typical inconsistencies that are deployed without any supporting documentation to help us understand why they are different.
