The SharePoint team is excited to announce we're adding three new web parts to the toolbox when creating team news articles and modern pages:
These new web parts are rolling out to First Release customers now…
What are modern pages you ask?
“Modern team site pages are fast, easy to author and support rich multimedia content. And pages look great on any device, in a browser or from within the SharePoint app. Using pages is a great way to communicate and share your ideas—such as status and trip reports, how-to write-ups, know-before-you-go guides and frequently asked questions.” - from our blog post last year.
The Image gallery web part lets you share collections of pictures on a page. Simply select your images with the file picker, or drag them on to the web part. Once you’ve built your collection, you can reorder them with drag and drop as well.
We support two beautiful layouts today:
You can also add additional information about each image such as:
Looking forward, we will be listening to customer feedback and adding more layouts and features that highlight your images beautifully on pages.
This web part makes it easy to add a map to your page. Simply enter an address or a well-known location name, and your map dynamically appears.
If you want to pick a different map type, you can of course do that... as well as change the zoom level, label your map pin with a friendly name, etc.
Depending upon your location, Bing maps may not support some map styles (e.g. Streetside view isn't available everywhere).
The Quick chart web part allows you to easily visualize simple data on your page. Enter your data points with labels, pick your chart type, and publish.
We support two chart types today:
We have a lot more web parts in the works, some of which you can see highlighted in this session “Discover the new SharePoint content publishing experiences” (link jumps right to web part section); from #MSIgnite.
As always, let us know what you think, and where we should invest more time.

Hi @John Sanders,
can you comment on the current news headlines webpart, specifically if you plan to expand the properties to include news pages from subsites, or/and if you have different ideas, like global sharepoint news (identical to the News tab on iOS)?

I see the quick chart webpart is more of static data. Is that can be made dynamic by pulling the live data from SP List?

This would be great. I think right now you can only achieve this with the PowerBI webpart, which also requires each user to have a PowerBI license to view the data. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

I am working right now with the new version of Sharepoint and I need to organize a page for the company. I've created a new Task List page, where I've added a lot of tasks and I've also added them to the Timeline.
I know that on the older version of Sharepoint Team Site pages, you could display that Timeline in the Home Page of the site but now I can't find a way to do it. I feel like I'm loosing my mind trying to put that Task List's Timeline into the homepage.
Can someone please help with some ideas?
I'm talking about this timeline:
PS: I'm also having problems because I can't change the logo of the Sharepoint Team Site

@Catherine Billick we have a people webpart today in SPO that allows you to search and find people in your organization.
Once you publish the page, this works via a hover action over the profile picture (not requiring click).
We demoed another new layout at Ignite for the same people web part that allows you to add a curated link for the person on that page (e.g. to their sub-project, blog, etc.) and write a short description about their role in this page. This content is stored locally, in context of the story you're telling on the page (not "synced" to their AAD profile somehow). The same click or hover gestures bring up the more detailed overlay card. This feature will be rolling out very shortly.
If you're not seeing this when you add a person to a modern page, please send me some detailed repro steps about what you are seeing.

The same icon does work in other areas like Search results and People.
This the web part I selected.

Thanks for the info @Catherine Billick. We're researching this now for your tenant farm.
Nov 27 2017 06:27 PM
@Catherine Billick - The people hover card experience is not yet rolled out to the farm you're on. The team is targeting the end of the year or early first quarter. Once it's available, it will begin to work in a number of places (SharePoint home, People webpart, etc.)

@John Sanders - Oh darn, I had planned to highlight that feature to users as we migrated their sites. Thank you for the update.

Is there a way to get a simple list of libraries associated to a site using a webpart? I can get lists of documents and images, but I'd love to have a library list instead of having to build it in the left-hand navigation column.
