Microsoft 365 is always changing and it's important when working in Internal Comms or other roles that have heavy involvement in creating content and applications for an organisation to stay on top of what is coming.
At Dapt we support organisations in creating intranets that work, are adopted and surface the right content at the right time to the right people. This is a key for getting important messages across to people in your organisation.
We've captured 5 of our top Microsoft 365 roadmap features you need to know about if you work in internal communications and help manage your intranet or other internal SharePoint portals.
01: Private drafts for SharePoint pages and news - expected April 2022
Microsoft is adding the ability to create private drafts for pages and news posts. A private draft is visible only to the page author, the people the author chooses to share it with, and site admins. It's great for creating and editing content that’s not ready for others to see except the people you want to collaborate with.
