As this is first release, I might be listing items which will be fixed later.

Features not available in the new modern look lists and libraries (yet):

  1. Ribbon
  2. Totals (view)
  3. Managed Metadata Navigation
  4. Cannot edit the page
  5. Connect to Outlook / Office
  6. Export to Excel

Note:  Not available for users with IE 9 or earlier

New Features:

  1. Highlight documents by pinning them to the top of the library
  2. Add a link to a document that is stored elsewhere
  3. Upload folders
  4. Tiles view
  5. Add columns from your list view
  6. Right-click on Document name to get Menu

Wait. What?! Right-click now works in SharePoint!!?!?!


See ya tomorrow!

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
