The new “Teams Site modern page” is a major enhancement for improved SharePoint collaboration

Microsoft demonstrated how to create a new Teams Site “modern” page using an existing “classic” SharePoint page in a demo presentation late last month.   The Feb. 27 demo, currently available on demand, was Part 1 of Microsoft’s video series prefacing the SharePoint Conference event, which will take place in Las Vegas in May. Mark Kashman, senior program manager on the SharePoint team, talked about Microsoft’s efforts to make Teams and SharePoint Online “better together” in various respects, while Tejas Mehta, a principal program manager for Teams, demonstrated how to create a modern Teams Site page in SharePoint Online.

    • New files experience in Teams
    • Teams channel awareness
    • Navigation and file-picking interfaces getting a common approach
    • Quick editing of Lists
    • Planner button addition to Lists
    • PowerApps custom forms
    • Microsoft Flow triggers for “file analysis, images and cognitive”
