What is a SharePoint Home Site?
According to Microsoft, SharePoint Home Sites are the ‘landing pages’ for your organization that:
- Connects the workplace with Microsoft Search and mega menu navigation.
- Shares relevant news and content to each user based on their role and place in the organization.
- Engages employees with conversation and compelling video powered by Yammer and Microsoft Stream.
- Powers individual productivity with personalized content, information, and navigation.
In other words, Home Sites provide a centralized access point for an organizations employees to collaborate and communicate efficiently. These home sites are the latest innovation in Microsoft’s unwavering commitment to improve upon and redefine the employee experience; which falls directly in line with the plans and road map that Powell Software has laid out moving forward. In the meantime, Powell Software has worked alongside Microsoft in order to extend the SharePoint home site experience to create the Powell 365 intranet solution.
