Feature Pack for Microsoft SharePoint
Some time back last year in November, Microsoft announced the Feature Pack 1 for SharePoint 2016 as part of it public update. Did you check it out? If not, then given below are some key highlights which you would be most interested in knowing.
- Administrative Actions Logging: This feature is categorically meant for troubleshooting issues pertaining to administrative changes. To be specific, this would be in a multiple administrator set-up, actions logged via the Central Administration website or the Management Shell.
- MinRole Enhancements: This is the new topology in SharePoint Server 2016 which helps simplify deployment experience. The guesswork goes out of the picture and the services begin running on the servers that matter. MinRole in the Microsoft Dynamics SharePoint Solution 2016 offers 2 new server roles optimized for small and medium-sized server farms. They offers the ability to run on just two servers and also a high availability MinRole farm with 4 servers.
- OneDrive for Business Modern Experience: The User Interface in the case of OneDrive for Business gets a revamp and begins resembling the layout and functionality already existing in its Office 365 counterpart. This feature requires an active software assurance contract or else, gets immediately disabled.
- Custom Tiles: The App Launcher is generally used for launching SharePoint and Office 365 workloads. Going forward, it allows end users to add their own custom tiles pointing to other SharePoint sites as well as external sites and also legacy apps.
- OneDrive API: This feature enables the end user to build a file management and workflow app through OneDrive API, which subsequently provides a set of HTTP services to connect the application to files and folders in OneDrive Personal, OneDrive for Business and Document Libraries in SharePoint Online.
- Hybrid Testing and Hybrid Taxonomy: Both are hybrid capabilities, the former enabling audit logs from on-premises installations of SharePoint 2016 to be collected and uploaded to Office 365 for centralized auditing and the latter allowing customer to bring their taxonomy store to Office 365 and enabling a single source for creating and managing terms, term sets and groups through one single managed metadata service.
