This week at Microsoft Ignite, we unveiled the latest innovations for SharePoint and OneDrive, including powerful integrations across Office 365, Windows and Azure.

 

Innovation in the cloud drives tremendous business value, and it delivers new capabilities to the IT professionals who work tirelessly to support, configure, administer, and secure their organizations' content and services.

 

We've built Office 365 with global scale, exceptional reliability, and support for compliance across every industry and geography. On top of intelligent security that keeps your service and content protected and private, we give you granular and dynamic controls so that you can manage access and distribution of your organization's sensitive information. We've equipped you with detailed activity and usage reports. And we've brought the innovations born in Office 365 to SharePoint Server with out-of-the-box capabilities and connected, hybrid experiences.

 

While our new user experiences are designed to be simpler, more intuitive, and more powerful we also believe administration should be just as simple, just as intuitive, and just as powerful, and to that, later this year we're introducing a completely revamped SharePoint Admin center that draws heavily on our modern principles. An administrative console designed to help IT achieve more, so their users can achieve more.

 

Home
The redesigned "Home" is designed to surface the most important information and quickly help you discover some of the most important information about the service, both its health, and how your organization is using SharePoint Online.

Site Management
Borrowing from the modern List experience in SharePoint Online, the new Site Management page promotes ease of use and flexibility - a one stop shop for viewing and managing some of the most important aspects of SharePoint Online sites.  You can now sort, filter, and discover information about your sites and their activity.

Recycle Bin
Sometimes you need information back.  The Recycle bin section in the new SharePoint Admin Center provides quick access to easily manage and recover deleted sites.

Sharing
At the foundation of SharePoint is sharing, and we're bringing sharing controls to the forefront of administration. Closely aligned with the OneDrive Admin Center, our sharing controls are designed to help your users make the most of their work all the while making it easy for you to control the flow of your organizations information.

Device Access
If you're complacent, you're likely not compliant - however, we believe compliance shouldn't get in the way of collaboration and over the past year have introduced several new conditional access policies across user, location, and device pivots to help you secure access to your information. With the upcoming SharePoint Admin Center, you can quickly access and use these policies to address your unique business needs.

Settings
We've taken the many settings available to you for SharePoint Online and grouped and isolated them to simplify how you manage some of the more discrete options for the service and sites.
