These updates include changes to our reflow automation for two-column sections and the RSS Connector web part by giving more control to users around the number of publications shown at one time and the number of articles shown per publication. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 93243.
Few changes to our reflow automation for two-column sections, control of vertical section reflow, and the RSS Connector web part will give more control to the users around the number of publications shown at a time and the number of articles shown per publication.
When this will happen
Targeted Release (select users and entire org): We will begin rolling these changes out in late June and we expect to complete rollout late June.
Standard: We will begin rolling this out in early July and we expect to complete rollout mid-July.
How this will affect your organization
Changes to 2 columns reflow
To help with readability and better integration of pages in Teams, we will now be keeping the two-column layout intact for pages viewed on screens larger than 640px wide. Previously, we would collapse page content into a single column when viewed on screens exceeding this size.
Control vertical section reflow
Currently the vertical section in pages goes to the bottom of the page when viewed on smaller screens. We’re adding the ability for page authors to control this reflow and choose whether the vertical section goes to the top or bottom of the screen when the screen is condensed to a smaller size.
More room for page editing in Microsoft Teams
Last year, we enabled the ability to author SharePoint pages directly in Teams. With this latest change, when editing the page, users will get a full screen experience, making it easier for users to edit their pages.
Changes to RSS Connector web part
For pages currently using the RSS Connector web part, we will begin limiting the number of articles displayed per publication to 50. On new pages created after this change is rolled out, the limit will be 10. This will give users control over how many publications and how many articles can be displayed at one time.
What you need to do to prepare
There is no work required to prepare for the updates listed for SharePoint Pages authoring, however you might want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as needed.
- Use the Connector web part (microsoft.com)
- Add sections and columns on a SharePoint modern page (microsoft.com)
