Create news in SharePoint Online sites

SharePoint Online

Lesson 10/12

News in SharePoint Online is a great way to disseminate information to your team and the entire organization. Learn how to create news in this video, then watch the content roll-ups lesson later in this course to see how your news can be pulled into other sites across your organization.


You can create and share news within and outside your SharePoint. News is highly visible to your members from the SharePoint start page, SharePoint mobile app, any of your pages that have the news web part, and any pages from other sites in your organization that are including news from your site.

Creating news is nearly identical to creating a page –  the main difference is what’s described in the previous paragraph – how it’s distributed, used in web parts, and consumed. The very nature of news is to be temporary – announcements, articles, write-ups, etc. Pages, on the other hand, are meant to be more permanent/evergreen as core resources/landing pages in your site’s navigation.
