So I have the opportunity to setup a new SharePoint Online Record Center site.

I have two options, Modern or Classic..

 

1. If I setup under a new site collection utilising Classic SharePoint I get to use SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure, scripting, Javascript, Custom CSS etc.

2. If I setup as a sub-site of my Modern Hub Site, I still have a Record Center in a Classic site as such but use Modern Lists and loose the publishing, scripting etc as I did in option 1. Benefits are that this would keep the same navigation structure as the Modern Hub Site.


What i do need with this option (if taken) is the ability to navigate to different lists as previously this is done using a SJPS Tile experience with FontAwesome icons. I guess I could use Promoted Links and create images to use on them?

 

In some ways I like the flexibility of the first option but wondering whether (as Im starting from scratch) whether I should go down the modern route entirely and miss out on all the fancy branding I've used previously.

Thoughts??
