As of March 2019, SharePoint News is about to bring some innovative enhancements to ensure a wonderful experience to users across organizations. Being an exciting content distribution system, SharePoint News does a great job spreading organizational, team and personal news. Using the News feature, users can easily compose links and news articles that can be easily surfaced in Email, Microsoft Search, Microsoft Teams and Portals.

The latest SharePoint News Enhancements will make it easier for communicators to keep everyone inside departments, groups, and divisions updated about all latest developments and information. Let’s see what are the latest features!

Organize news

One of the biggest changes is that the user can now assign a custom order to display news. This will allow highlighting those high-value posts that require more visibility, or which are supposed to be giving more value to people.
