Publish your first SharePoint news post | complete tutorial

In this first of four lessons, we will turn you into a total expert at SharePoint news publishing!

This tutorial is particularly relevant for corporate communication professionals, but even if you’re just looking to make the most of your team’s SharePoint site you’ll get a lot of value from this one.

What you’ll get from our SharePoint news post tutorial

We’ll look at the difference between SharePoint intranet pages and news posts and how you can use the metadata field called promoted state to identify news posts.

While building the news post we talk through how to post in SharePoint on behalf of someone else, configuring the header, and adding text and other web parts. We also touch on the importance of keeping intranet news posts simple to avoid distracting your readers from the message you’re trying to communicate.

After saving a draft and posting your SharePoint news post, we also talks through Everything that happens in SharePoint after you publish your news post, including the SharePoint start page and news feed, news web parts on other intranet sites and on the smartphone app.

If you’ve never published anything on SharePoint before, we suggest you look at our tutorial on how to build your first SharePoint page and make it awesome.
