🍾 LAUNCHED

  • SharePoint: Updated SharePoint app bar and start page sites for GCC High and DoD – The My sites panel in the SharePoint app bar will now include sites that users frequently access and follow. Additionally, the SharePoint start page, (the landing page when you select SharePoint tile in the Office 365 app launcher), will also show sites that users frequently access, recent sites and news. This change will populate sites content for these experiences in GCC High and DoD environments. Roadmap ID:93181
  • SharePoint: Microsoft 365 connected templates – We are combining the best of Microsoft Teams templates with SharePoint site templates – into the same flow of creation. When we create a new team using a default template – for example the “Manage a Project” template, the project management channels and apps, and the connected SharePoint template gets applied automatically. Critically, the pages, lists, and Power Platform integrations are pinned as tabs in Teams automatically, and best of all these pages and lists are fully editable right in Teams.  Roadmap ID:82158
  • SharePoint: Automatically build visualization of list data with Power BI (Gov Clouds) – Enables list users to easily visualize their list data in a Power BI report. The initial report is auto generated. Users can also save that report so that future visitors to the list can view the report. Roadmap ID: 93221
