Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Check the communication site, part of SharePoint Online Essential Training: The Basics.
- [Narrator] The sites that I've shown you…how to use thus far have had one thing in common:…they have all been SharePoint team sites.…Some of them have been SharePoint team sites…that are legacy sites or classic sites,…some of them have been new sites or modern sites.…However, all of them were created…for collaboration by a group of users.…But there's another type of site that we can create…in SharePoint Online that's meant not for collaboration,…but for disseminating information,…and that type of site is called a communication site.…
I have one here, our Installation Showcase.…There are two types of templates…used for communication sites.…One is for showcases that are really focused on images.…If you find you want to focus more on text,…then you would use a topic site.…And so, if you see a site like this, the odds are good…that it was designed as a communication site.…If you've been working in SharePoint for a while,…communication sites are in some ways…the heirs to SharePoint publishing sites.…
You can still create publishing sites,…
