SharePoint web part toolbox updates

Microsoft is updating the web part toolbox to make it easier for page authors to find and use web parts on their pages and news posts. We have added categories, a toggle to switch between a grid view and list view, web part descriptions in list view, and a section for the user’s most frequently used web parts.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70668.

When this will happen

The Targeted Release (tenant) will rollout in late January, 2021 and be complete by early February 2021.

The Standard Release will rollout in mid-February 2021 and be complete by late February 2021.

How this will affect your organization

Page authors will see the updated toolbox when they select the plus sign (+) to add a new web part to a page they are editing.
