New and Improved Features in SharePoint Server 2019
SharePoint Server 2019 has some exciting new features and we will be covering them in this blog.
Web-Based Communication Sites
You can inform others, showcase your work, and get your message out to the masses all through various online communication platforms. Creating and publishing content is a breeze with SharePoint 2019.
Preparing a Virtual Meeting Space (Communication Site)
To access SharePoint, please visit https://*DomainName*/my/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx
Choose your means of online interaction (communication site).
Choose an appropriate layout design for your SharePoint site.
SharePoint communication sites typically come with one of three predefined design templates which include Showcase, Topic, and Blank.
- Showcase – To showcase something means to display it, whether it be a product, a team, or an event.
- Topic – The purpose of a topic is to disseminate data, whether that data be recent events, images, photos, news, articles, or anything else.
- Blank – Use the blank canvas to make a truly unique design.
Modern SharePoint Lists & Libraries
SharePoint Server 2019 can handle the newest SharePoint libraries and lists.
Modern SharePoint Libraries make it easy for users to see metadata and permissions associated with their files.
In SharePoint 2019, Conditional Formatting is available in Modern Lists. Users can quickly see the status of an item by configuring various display rules for areas of focus (particular column) by using Conditional Formatting.
In SharePoint 2019, you can switch between the modern and classic user interfaces in the list’s preferences. You can select list settings options by clicking on > Advanced Settings > List Experience to customize your list viewing experience.
Amplification of Maximum File Size for Storage In SharePoint Document Libraries
SharePoint document libraries can accommodate files as large as 15 GB in size with the SharePoint 2019 Server. Please be aware that a large number of large files may reduce the efficiency of the farm.
Rapid Site Development
When using SharePoint, administrators can use the Fast Site Creation feature to rapidly generate new site collections from a pre-existing template.
This quick-start website function actually utilizes a replicated template that is already present in the content management system.
You can quickly build a website using one of these premade themes. All you need to so is to;
- Login to your personal OneDrive space [SPSPERS#10]
- Go to ‘Team Site’ and select (Modern Only) (STS#3)
- Select ‘Communication Site’ [SITEPAGEPUBLISHING#0]
To see all the farm’s site master web templates, run Get-SPWebTemplatesEnabledForSiteMaster.
Modern Sharing Experience
SharePoint Server 2019 now appears to support more up-to-date ways of sharing content. It’s a more user-friendly interface for sharing. Helpful for rapidly disseminating links and information within the company. Another feature is a notification that appears whenever a user attempts to share with a sizable group or a large number of items.
SharePoint 2019 libraries leverage both SharePoint and OneDrive to facilitate a modern sharing experience. Additionally, it fixes many of the problems with synchronization and integration that plagued earlier versions of SharePoint.
Modern Searching Experience
The new SharePoint Server 2019 features an improved search engine. SharePoint’s homepage also features integrated search bars. This feature is also accessible on modern team sites and social networking websites.
Most obviously, in a modern search engine, you can see potential results even before you begin typing, and these results will continue to change and evolve as you continue to type.
You are unable to disable either modern or classic search as an administrator. On classic team sites and publishing sites, users have access to the standard search functionality. Users of the SharePoint homepage, modern team sites, and communication sites can all take advantage of SharePoint’s updated search capabilities by visiting the Search Centre. From the perspective of the administrator, there are variations in the search processes.
Modern Team Sites
This is because responsive design has become the norm for modern Team sites. With their built-in news publishing engine, users can easily update the group on any development.
Sites for modern teams typically feature a variety of flexible web pages, document repositories, data management lists, and web components that can be tailored to individual teams’ needs. The default for new team sites in SharePoint Server 2019 is a modern site, though both modern and classic sites are still supported.
Modern Web Pages & Modern Team Sites
Modern Web Parts
Web parts developed in recent years are intended to be simpler to work with, quicker to load, and more aesthetically pleasing. Web components that are up to date with modern page standards are used. Also, keep in mind that you can’t use the classic web parts on modern pages, and vice versa, and that this is for security reasons.
Modern Site Pages
With the help of modern web parts, you can create responsive pages quickly and easily with modern pages.
The SharePoint home page is a state-of-the-art user interface that comes preconfigured in SharePoint Server 2019 and allows users to quickly and easily navigate to their various SharePoint portals and sites. It’s a one-of-a-kind self-service platform that gives users access to updates from the sites they follow while also facilitating the development of fresh, innovative sites.
Simply selecting “SharePoint” from the SharePoint launcher will take you to the SharePoint homepage. SharePoint’s homepage took the place of old sites.aspx.
Integration With MS PowerApps and Power Automate
When it comes to SharePoint, the cloud is now more accessible than ever thanks to SharePoint Server 2019. Power Automate and Power Apps are two cloud-based services that help businesses streamline administrative tasks like document approval workflows. Your on-premises data can be accessed by Power Apps and Power Automate, but only after a gateway has been set up.
Both Power Apps and Power Automate require a gateway configuration in order to access data stored on-premises.
Power BI Report Server, the on-premises version of Power BI, allows you to easily generate and share visually impressive reports in SharePoint Server 2019.
SharePoint’s Homepage Now Allows Users To Set Up Their Own AAM Zones When Creating New Sites
SharePoint’s self-service site creation experience allows users to make new sites in any web application, whether it’s hosted on a local farm or a remote one. In turn, this allows for more control and flexibility when administering SharePoint farms.
