SharePoint Online Keynotes from April, 2017

— Updated features, new features, Stay informed news—

1.    New feature: Modern List and Document Library Web Parts

Published On: April 25, 2017

The Modern List and Document Library Web Parts are new Office 365 features. You’ll begin seeing these new features over the coming weeks.

How does this affect me?

The web parts can be added to any modern SharePoint page, allowing users to view and edit files directly from the web part. Any list or document library can be displayed and customized with the users’ own title, view, and size choice.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out in early May, and the roll out will be completed by the end of June 2017

2.    Updated Feature: OneDrive and SharePoint Online sharing experience

Published On: April 17, 2017

We are updating the sharing experience in OneDrive and SharePoint, both in the web and in the sync client.

How does this affect me?

We’ve improved the sharing UI on the OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online websites and sync clients to provide easier collaboration, better usability and improved security. We’ve also overhauled the sharing dialog in both OneDrive and SharePoint and replaced it with a single control that will be available to users in the web and in the OneDrive sync client.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out starting in late spring, and the roll out will be completed summer 2017.

3.    Updated feature: Company Shareable Links will now open in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business

Published On: April 10, 2017

We’re updating Company Shareable Links (the type of sharing links that are only accessible to users in your company) so that non-Office files such as pictures, videos and PDFs are going to be displayed in the SharePoint/OneDrive for Business user experience instead of automatically downloading the file or opening it in the browser. This will take advantage of all of our new web previewers, and is going to be a better collaboration experience for all your users.

We are rolling this out today, and the roll out will be completed by the end of May.

How does this affect me?

Today a Company Shareable Link to a picture, video or other supported files took the user outside the SharePoint user experience, instead opening the file in the browser if supported, or automatically download it – requiring an installed app to open it locally. We will now open files in our web previewers, simplifying collaboration. If we come across a file that we do not support (see linked article for all formats we support), users can quickly download the file like before.

4.    Updated Feature: Improving the experience for the Content Embed web part

Published On: April 10, 2017

To reduce the risk of embedded content being pulled in from unknown sites, Office 365 is setting a default list of sites and domains that are recognized as safe. We are rolling this out today, and the roll out will be completed in the following days.

How does this affect me?

We are updating the default list of sites and domains (found in the HTML Field Security setting) to include additional, commonly used websites from Microsoft and Google services. This will improve the content embedding experience.
