SharePoint: Intelligent Intranet in Your Pocket

Intranet is the centre of many businesses. Team members use them on a daily basis to share information, get company news and search for people and documents. Earlier this year Microsoft announced the latest version of SharePoint with new features including a new mobile app, modern team sites with Office 365 groups, responsive page authoring and integration with Microsoft PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. 

So What Does This All Mean for Your User Experience?

It means you have better access to the information that you need on the go. Access content, people, sites and portals on your mobile. The mobile app is infused with intelligence from Office Graph- so you can find the things you need more quickly. There also are tabs for recent sites, links or people. 

SharePoint at your Desktop

The new SharePoint now can be found within Office 365 with a redesigned, modern and responsive user experience. The sites you use the most appear at the top of the page, and Office Graph is present as well- ensuring the most relevant information for you is front centre. 

Improved Team Sites and Document Libraries

It's more simple and faster for your team to create a new team site. And once again the most relevant information is visually displayed or you can pin information to the top to increase discoverability. 

All of these features in the new SharePoint are about one thing: making the user experience more efficient by tailoring information to fit individual needs.
