Design inspiration and advanced functionality for your SharePoint intranet

Modern experiences you can build with SharePoint Online

Microsoft SharePoint is a powerful tool that allows you to create and manage information sites, or portals, within your organisation. These sites, also known as intranets, can serve a multitude of purposes, including communication, collaboration, and learning. If you’re tasked with designing or revamping your company intranet, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of possibilities available to you with Modern SharePoint.

Luckily, Microsoft has published some excellent resources to help you get started and create your own modern experiences you can build with SharePoint Online.

Modern experiences you can build with SharePoint Online

Finding Inspiration

The first step to designing any website is to get inspired. To jumpstart your creativity, head over to the SharePoint Look Book [https://sharepointlookbook.azurewebsites.net/#examples]. This website showcases a variety of modern and functional SharePoint intranet designs. Browse through the examples to see how others are using SharePoint to create user-friendly and informative intranets.

The Look Book is not just a collection of pretty pictures. Each example includes a brief description of the functionality used to achieve the design. This way, you can not only see the finished product but also gain insight into how it was built.

Going Beyond the Basics

Once you have a general idea of the design direction you want to take, you can explore the more advanced functionalities of SharePoint. The SharePoint Design Patterns website [https://spdesign.azurewebsites.net/] is an excellent resource for this. This website provides step-by-step guides on how to use various SharePoint web parts to achieve specific goals.

For example, if you want to create a newsfeed on your intranet homepage, the SharePoint Design Patterns website provides instructions on how to use the News web part to accomplish this.
