SharePoint Office 365 enhancements

SharePoint pages are simple to create and publish, and they look great on any device. When creating a page, you can add and configure web parts, and then publish your page with just a click. And, as previously announced, you can configure the surrounding elements of the page (navigation, header, footer & theme). Now more than ever, creators and site owners present the information in an elegant, easy to consume fashion – with full context intact.

We are excited to announce the following page enhancements -screenshots

  • Customize title region | control what the title region of each page looks like (layout, alignment, title, date).

  • Section backgrounds | display as distinct sections with visual variety throughout the page.

  • Custom page thumbnails | Choose a preferred thumbnail from Page details.

  • Custom page descriptions | Create a custom description from Page details.

  • FYI: removal of the Feedback button | removing the product Feedback button from the site footer of all SharePoint home and modern site pages.

Customize the title region for each page.

Modern SharePoint pages and news articles will now have more options to customize the title region of each page, with four layouts, two alignment choices, text badges above the title, the ability to change the displayed author, and show or hide the published date. Own the title and the rest will follow. Make it your own.

Modern pages support section backgrounds

This makes it easier to see the distinct sections and adds visual variety throughout the page. Create additional visual design and clarity as a user scrolls through your content. Now you can add colors from your site’s theme (neutral, soft & strong) to the background of your page sections or leave them white as they are by default.

Page owners can customize their page thumbnails and descriptions from within page details edit pane. Once adjusted, the content will then be represented in this way in search results, highlighted content, previews, and more – just the way you intended.

  • Pages - choose new thumbnail - Choose a new thumbnail from Page details: Previously, the thumbnail image for a page (used in search results, highlighted content, and SharePoint News) was auto-selected. Now, you'll be able to select your own thumbnail image.

  • Pages - choose new description - Choose a new description from Page details: Previously, the first text that appeared on the page was auto-selected as the page description. You can now add your own custom description in Page details.

The SharePoint feedback button is being retired​

Starting the week of February 18th, 2019, we're removing the product Feedback button from the site footer of all SharePoint home and modern site pages. For SharePoint users to easily provide product feedback and suggestions we included a footer link to SharePoint UserVoice forums.

Note: If you had previously enabled or disabled the button using the Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled property, this setting will no longer be required as the button will no longer be displayed for any tenant sites.
