SharePoint & OneDrive round-up from #msignite

When Ignite 2017 closed, like many others, I’m was blown away with all the updates…Its like they actually listened to most of my customers’ asks for the past 5 years and finally got around to implementing them.  The shear amount of updates is what is mind blowing!  SharePoint and OneDrive are almost a complete revamp after they finish with pushing out all these updates.  This isn’t to mention all the integration improvements with all the other O365 products, services, and apps.

Nick Brattoli from Collab365 has written a great round-up of all the updates.

Andrew Connell also wrote a great round-up of all the SharePoint Dev specific updates.

Below are some of the things that I found worth noting as major announcements:

  1. Greatly improved analytics (including file view)
  2. SharePoint Framework (SPFx) Web APIs & Permission Scope access
  3. SharePoint Framework (SPFx) ALM APIs & Permission Scopes
  4. Files on demand for OneDrive & SharePoint
  5. SharePoint HUB Sites
  6. Self-service OneDrive restore
  7. Universal Sharing interface, no matter which application you are in
  8. No Microsoft account needed for sharing securely
  9. Group enabled site collections will finally be listed in SharePoint Admin center
  10. SharePoint Framework (SPFx) tenant wide deployments
  11. SharePoint Site Collection App Catalog
  12. New SharePoint Admin center
  13. File preview for 270+ content types
  14. Page embedded Microsoft Forms & custom forms via PowerApps
  15. Microsoft built migration tool
  16. SharePoint Server 2019 – on premise (along with Office, Exchange, and SfB 2019)
    • Note that the SfB client is planned to be integrated with the Teams client…I therefore expect the branding of SfB Server 2019 will change before release
  17. General improvements and improved integration to many of the other O365 apps and capabilities (SPFx, Search, Groups, Teams, Planner, PowerApps/Flow, PowerBI, Reporting, Security/Privacy/Compliance, etc.)
  18. SharePoint Conference NA
