Attendees (in-person and virtual) at the recent SharePoint Conference were introduced to recent and upcoming features and innovations within SharePoint, including Home Sites. Home Sites bring together personalized news, events, conversations, content, and video on a single SharePoint communications site.
SharePoint home sites are an intelligent, integrated employee experience—a landing page—for your organization that:
Connects the workplace with Microsoft Search and megamenu navigation.
Shares relevant news and content to each user based on their role and place in the organization.
Engages employees with conversation and compelling video powered by Yammer and Microsoft Stream.
Powers individual productivity with personalized content, information, and navigation.
