  1. SharePoint Help Site Template

    If there was a Site Template that came with some quick start cards or linked to useful videos regarding SharePoint functions. That would put something out there so that SharePoint Administrators could spin this up and then let the users who are more comfortable with self-lead educating or for that matter letting others potentially lead training efforts.

    It might also be cool to have some functionality in there that points back to Office help articles, MSDN articles, or maybe general SharePoint Platform news within this site to keep things moving around and draw people to this site.

      • SharePoint Online Updates - Where can we find the list of UI changes.

        SharePoint Online gets upgrades with every new release and Users are caught off-guard. Wouldn't it be nice for Microsoft to send out an email (since they already have emails) about the upcoming releases and the list of major UI changes coming up.

        • Provide 1-2 minute videos about modern office in SharePoint

          The training videos on your Office Training for SharePoint don't reflect the modern lists or libraries that have been released to SharePoint online 8 months ago. This makes it difficult to migrate to SharePoint online and explain to our users what's different between 2013 and SP online.
