This year has seen an enthusiasm from within the community and organizations alike in the adoption of the new SharePoint Modern Experience. After all, it makes sense – the interface is clean, professional, and responsive, and time spent on page creation is minimized. The power users out there know that the Modern Experience is also mistake-proof for the most common end users, as little harm can be done to the site layout or visuals (no more destructive master page or page layout boo-boos!).

For those of you already creating Communications or Team sites under the new experience, you are aware of the two most common layout samples:

  • The landing page
  • The blog page

But what are some other layouts that can be used with the Modern Experience? Here are some examples:

The “Meet Your Team/Leads/Execs” Layout

This is a pretty simple layout and an effective way to present information. If you have key team members or executives that you would like to introduce, then the one-third — two-thirds layout is a classic. Simply drop an image web part on the left and a text editor on the right to do the job!

The “FAQ/Wiki” Layout

Adding lists of links on the right side as well as a simple Microsoft form (Was this article helpful? Yes/No) will give you the look of a FAQ/Wiki page.

The “Photo/Video” Library

Simple and efficient, if you have media assets to expose or training sessions to share, this layout is a perfect fit.

The “Forum/Water Cooler” Page

At times too simplistic, this page is not essential if you already leverage Microsoft Teams within your organization. However, if you need space for a bit of unstructured discussion, simply use an empty page and let people start adding their comments.

I am sure there are tons of other ideas out there, so if you care to share, just drop a message below. I am looking forward to reading about your layout ideas!
