Season 1 Ep5: Modern Team Sites: 7 Things You Should Know – office 365 Migrations

In this video from the series Migrating to office365 (o365) from SharePoint 2013 we talk about some of the cool new features in Modern Team sites (aka sites for Office 365 Groups). Here are the seven things you need to know about the new Modern Team Sites in office 365 SharePoint. This evaluation was done Jan 2017, so depending on when you watch this video, some of the items may be out dated. #1 – Create Site link now creates Modern Team Sites. #2 – The new Modern Team Sites are created as a site collection #3 – the new Modern Team Sites uses the same security model as office 365 Groups (i.e. they leverage AD groups .vs SharePoint Groups to control access #4 – Subsites created under Modern Team sites will still use the legacy site templates and NOT the new Modern Team Site templates. The Modern Team site templates is created using template ID Group#0 #5 – The new Modern Team sites will not appear in the SharePoint Admin screen under SharePoint Site Collections #6 – You must go through the Group Edit screen in order to delete a new Modern Team Site. The option to delete the site is no longer on the Site Settings page #7 – You can invite external users to Modern Team sites, but you must follow the same steps as you would for office 365 Group Sites. In addition, the external user assignment must be approved by the Group Owner(s). Overall, the modern team sites are pretty cool and are sufficient to use now in a First Release tenant. I think there are some items that still need to be enhanced before they are available for GA. The full life cycle of Modern team sites, and the ability to take over a site needs to be realized. ?
