Post News directly from SharePoint summary page

When you go to your SharePoint summary page you’ll see all your SharePoint Teams Sites as well as a list of news articles bubbled up to the page from these locations.

If you now look closely you’ll see (or soon see) a link, Create news post, at the top of this page as shown above.

When you select the link you’ll be prompted for a location you have access to in which to post the article. Simply select the location you want to the article to actually live in.

Now go and create the news article as you normally would.

Although this change may seem seem small it reduces the friction for people when they want to publish information. The faster they can do this the better and more likely they are to share something with everyone.
