SharePoint admin center – retiring four classic pages

From Microsoft Corporation

MC220223, Plan For Change, Published date: Aug 12, 2020

Major update: Announcement

Applies To: All

The following pages in the classic SharePoint admin center have been replaced by pages in the new SharePoint admin center and will be removed/retired: “Site Collections”, “Sharing”, “Access control”, and “Geo locations”.

Key points:

  • Major: Retirement
  • Timing: the change will roll out incrementally over several months.  Once the banner appears on your tenant’s classic pages, the transition will happen 30 day later.
  • Action: review and assess

How this will affect your organization:

Admins will start to see a banner on these four classic pages. The banner will display the date when the page will be retired along with a link to documentation that describes where to find all the features in the new admin center.  Sample below:

After the retirement date, these classic pages will be replaced with redirect pages to the new SharePoint admin center so that any bookmarks continue working. Sample below

It’s not possible to opt out of this change and preserve these pages. What you need to do to prepare:

You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
