12 Days of SharePoint | Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of PixelMill’s ’12 Days of SharePoint’ series! If life is moving a little too fast for you, today’s tip should help you understand how to keep up with the times. Enjoy!

Embrace Modern SharePoint Experiences 

Have you noticed how quickly SharePoint Online has evolved over the last twelve months? I’m sure you want more, but think about how far we have come. Modern Lists and Libraries, group-enabled modern team sites, Communication sites, and soon to be released Hub sites. Plus, you can customize modern experiences using SharePoint Framework Webparts, SharePoint Framework extensions, and recently released Column Formatting. The pace of change has actually concerned many people we have talked to as they are fearful of keeping up, or they believe that what they “need” is not yet available.
Modern experiences are here to stay. At least for the mid to long-term—meaning years. We readily expect these experiences to continue to grow and evolve, but there is little evidence to believe they are going to be replaced any time soon.
You may be concerned that you don’t understand how to use modern experiences as they don’t provide the fully brandable, hierarchical, leviathan of an intranet, but it’s time to begin or continue on your journey with modern experiences. They’re becoming much more tailorable to your specific needs. Yes, you might need to change your approach to SharePoint, but likely that’s overdue. SharePoint is much more than a shared drive, or a place to post news. Your future projects should start with the assumption that you will build them using moderns experiences, and only after a thorough review of your requirements should classic experiences be brought back into the mix.

Anyone who has 'attended' a physical meeting by 'conferencing in' in knows the frustrations & limitations that come from not being in the room. You're the voice in the ceiling & not equally represented in the conversation.

This is no longer acceptable.


Today, we find ourselves facing the “hybrid work paradox.”

Employees are keen to retain flexibility. At the same time, human-to-human collaboration remains important.

To marry the best of both, hone your strategy, spaces, & tech to suit employee needs.


It's the day of the show, y'all!

Join the #PixelMillWebinars this morning at 11am PST for a live panel discussion about what the #digitalworkspace looks like for a #hybrid team, & how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.



Join the #PixelMillWebinars this Thursday as we welcome key players from @OrchestrySoft, @KieferConsult, and @AP_Mortgage to discuss the hybrid work paradox and how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.


We've all been itching to get "back to normal," but what does that mean? Are we missing out on valuable lessons learned by trying to return to something that perhaps wasn't working before?

Join us next week for a live panel discussion on the new normal.
