This new SharePoint spaces feature enables the creation of immersive mixed reality environments that can be authored and published just like SharePoint pages. The new styles feature for text and annotation icons simplifies creation of consistent and great looking content. Text styles make consistent formatting easy to apply with just a click. Annotation icon styles allow customization of icon, size, and visual style for icons used to highlight specific content in the spaces 360° tour web part. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70733.
Use and customize styles within the spaces text web part and customize icons in 360° image tours with choice of icons, colors, and size.
When this will happen
- Targeted release (entire org): will begin and complete rolling out in late August.
- Standard release: will begin rolling this out in late August and expect to complete rollout mid-September.
How this will affect your organization
For text styles, authors will see an option to select from four default styles in the property pane of the spaces text web part. They can modify these default styles and can also add four more custom styles. If they don’t need to use styles, they can still manually customize the formatting of a text web part using existing options.
In the 360° tour web part, authors will be able to adjust the size of the icon, select a different icon to display, and adjust the visual style of the icon display. This flexibility will allow 360° tour authors to categorize annotations more effectively, reduce the size of annotation icons to focus more attention on the 360° image, and better match the visual look and feel of the icons to the 360° image contents.
