Improvements to SharePoint pages authoring – Column reflow and RSS connector web part

SharePoint Online, SharePoint Development Services, SharePoint Development

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin: MC393823 · Published Jun 18, 2022

Message Summary

These updates include changes to our reflow automation for two-column sections and the RSS Connector web part by giving more control to users around the number of publications shown at one time and the number of articles shown per publication.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 93243

When this will happen:

Targeted Release (select users and entire org): We will begin rolling these changes out in late June and we expect to complete rollout late June.

Standard: We will begin rolling this out in early July and we expect to complete rollout mid-July.

How this will affect your organization:

Changes to 2 columns reflow

To help with readability and better integration of pages in Teams, we will now be keeping the two-column layout intact for pages viewed on screens larger than 640px wide. Previously, we would collapse page content into a single column when viewed on screens exceeding this size.

Control vertical section reflow 

Currently the vertical section in pages goes to the bottom of the page when viewed on smaller screens. We’re adding the ability for page authors to control this reflow and choose whether the vertical section goes to the top or bottom of the screen when the screen is condensed to a smaller size. 

More room for page editing in Microsoft Teams 

Last year, we enabled the ability to author SharePoint pages directly in Teams. With this latest change, when editing the page, users will get a full screen experience, making it easier for users to edit their pages. 

Changes to RSS Connector web part 

For pages currently using the RSS Connector web part, we will begin limiting the number of articles displayed per publication to 50. On new pages created after this change is rolled out, the limit will be 10. This will give users control over how many publications and how many articles can be displayed at one time.
