List creation from templates Visual refresh in SharePoint sites

From Microsoft Corporation

MC222600, Plan For Change, Published date: Sep 22, 2020

Major update: Announcement
Applies To: All

List creation from SharePoint sites will get a visual refresh and users will get the additional capability to create lists from eight built-in templates. These updates are already part of the Microsoft Lists app and Lists in Teams rollouts – we are bringing the same goodness to SharePoint sites too.

Key points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 67137
  • Timing:
    • Targeted release: Gradually rolling out end of September through mid-October
    • Standard release: Gradually rolling out mid-October through end of October
  • Rollout type: Tenant level
  • Action: Review, assess and educate

How this will affect your organization:

Two changes are part of this feature rollout.

  1. Users will now be able to create lists from eight built-in templates from SharePoint sites (from site contents or from the site homepage).
  2. Existing list creation flows will be visually refreshed to align with the updates that users are already seeing as part of the Microsoft Lists app and Lists in Teams.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users who create lists from SharePoint sites about these upcoming changes, update your user training, and prepare your help desk.
