Create a button with new news post linked to templates

Copper Contributor


On a SharePoint online site I want to restrict users to the menu of creating new pages, lists, librarys etc.

Instead I want to create a button with "create news post".

I tried the: but this only creates a new page not a new news post.

I don't want a new page since I afterwards when i publish I get a pop-up with "help others find you page". I dont want that.


Also, what permissions should I use at the site to restrict users to not seeing the menu but being able with the button to see the own-created templates, not only the build in templates.

Let me know if you have any questions :)

Thanks Jennifer but would you mind elaborating on what you mean, I need a link to create new news post via a button and turn off the menu.
If you still think Audience Targeting is the right way please explain how.

@THOREX Use link in below format to create a new news post:


Also, you can hide New option in site pages library using JSON view formatting: 


  "commandBarProps": {
    "commands": [
        "key": "new",
        "hide": true
