Announcing general availability of SharePoint spaces

From Microsoft Corporation

MC224942, Plan For Change, Published date: Oct 22, 2020
Feature update, User impact

We announced SharePoint spaces in April (MC208358). This web-based, immersive platform, which allows your users to create and share mixed reality experiences, will soon move from public preview to general availability. At that time, the menu entry will no longer contain “(Preview)”.

This feature is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 67135.

When this will happen

  • Targeted release: early November through mid-November
  • Standard release: mid-November through late November

How this will affect your organization

SharePoint spaces will soon transition from public preview to general availability. At that time, the “(Preview)” indicator will no longer appear on the SharePoint spaces menu.

SharePoint site owners will continue to have the option to turn on the SharePoint spaces feature for their sites using the Manage site features page.

New and old menu

What you need to do to prepare

When the public preview indicator disappears, site owners will still have to enable SharePoint spaces at the site level. You may want to train users or provide them with documentation about SharePoint spaces.

Later this year, we will enable the create Space option in the +New menu by default for all users with permission to create content on a SharePoint site. We will provide a SharePoint PnP script command that will allow tenant administrators to maintain the current behavior, where each site must activate the SharePoint spaces feature on the manage site features page before the entry will appear in the +New menu.

We will communicate with you via a new Message center post when we are prepared to roll out this next phase of SharePoint spaces.
