SharePoint page authoring – new first run experience

We are introducing a first-run, optional interactive experience, to guide new users through the basics of creating their first SharePoint page or news post.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70667.

When this will happen

We will be gradually rolling this out from early January through the end of February 2021.

How this will affect your organization

The first time that SharePoint users (who have permission) create a new page or news post, they will see an opportunity to take a product tour. Users will learn how to pick a template, add/edit sections and web parts, title their page, and choose a title image.First run

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
