Last year, at the SharePoint Conference, we announced SharePoint home sites, the latest innovation for the intelligent intranet. And now, just when staying connected is key and communication is needed more than ever, SharePoint home sites feature is available to all customers.

A SharePoint home site is a communication site that is designed and designated to serve as the top portal in your organization. We like to call it a communication site with some extra superpowers. It is an organization’s front page; a carefully crafted collection of news, content, conversations and video to deliver an engaging experience that reflects an organization’s voice, priorities and brand. See the tools in action by watching the keynote presentation, and then try your hand at creating your own home sites

 

We cannot wait to see what you create! Install a template from the SharePoint look book to get a jump start on a beautiful and effective intranet.
