Modern Experience in SharePoint

March 18, 2019

What is Modern SharePoint?

Modern SharePoint is a whole new user experience. It’s more than a fresh look; it’s designed from the ground up to work on mobile devices, and it addresses dozens of nagging usability issues.

The Modern Experience updates not only improve the look and feel of SharePoint sites, lists and pages, but it finally makes them mobile friendly on a cross-platform basis. Users can stop rotating their phones and tapping their fingers on the screen just to zoom in enough to get an accurate click on a page that has been sized down to fit the screen.  The SharePoint 2019 Modern Experience provides organizations with both compatibility for their existing installs and a path to using newer tools and features.

Here is a list of the benefits that impact you:

  • Convenient SharePoint home page
  • Improved OneDrive sync and hybrid support
  • Modernized team sites, libraries, and lists
  • Improved SharePoint search
  • New communication sites
  • More secure
  • Faster, everywhere
