SharePoint, as we all know is a leading document management and collaboration tool that is developed by Microsoft. Basically, it is an intranet and content management system that is used by organizations for internal purposes to bring in business together, which includes collaboration opportunities, secure document management and etc. With more than 100 million users worldwide and with around 20,000 users each day, SharePoint is used by 78% of the fortune 500 companies.
The beginning of the year 2020 is a great time to think about your intranet goals. Since SharePoint is comprised of a multipurpose set of technologies that are integrated with Office 365 and other handy document management capabilities. SharePoint development helps to resolve a lot of issues in a company and here in this article we have discussed some of the most important things that we should be able to resolve by using SharePoint:
The organization asset feature allows the user to register one or more document libraries via PowerShell as a special source for photos and logos in the site. The libraries are available when you add the images to the page headers, web parts or galleries. You can also have up to 30 libraries in a single company and all of them need to be in the same site collection. It is a great means to maintain brand assets and provide access to brand approved logos and images in one place.
Many times, it so happens that users don’t find the content because the page on the site is not published. Changing the default view for the Site Pages library to All Pages view and adding promoted State and Version to that view is essential. Since this is not the default built into the product, one should make this update to every site.
Website owners usually don’t want to create very long pages in a SharePoint site. Since people do not read long pages they scan them and to make things easier, the content is broken into chunks. While you may be tempted to use bold text that helps to separate the paragraphs, but it is always better to use the built in heading styles instead. SharePoint development automatically adds the anchor links to all the first, second and the third level heading in the page. The anchor links can be used to create a table of content for the long pages and heading can be used to help make the page more accessible.
The look book of SharePoint has some amazing features and if you want to get some presentation ideas for your content, then this can help a lot. The look book has beautiful, visual examples of all kinds of different sites that are configured by the Microsoft UX designers.
Personalization allows the users to create a tailored experience in complex intranets, which helps to cut down the amount of navigation that the users take to find what they need. Personalization allows you to reduce the noise for the intranet readers and show the content to people who are interested in it and hide from the rest. Audience targeting for SharePoint page and News is rolling out now and audience targeting for navigation can also be used to change the navigation experiences based on membership in a location or community.
