SharePoint: Updates to the site creation experience

Microsoft is updating the site creation experience to make it easier for site creators to select the right type of SharePoint site, understand roles, and site permissions. Updates to this experience will include refreshed graphics, expanded site descriptions, and additional context for different permission levels in the Site permissions panel.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85683.
 

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out to Targeted release (select user and organization) in early November and expect to complete for Standard release in early March (previously mid-January).

Note: Some users may see this feature before other users within the same organization.
 

How this will affect your organization:

The updated site creation experience is designed to help site creators quickly understand the differences between a communication site and a team site.

These updates will include improvements to the Site permissions panel so site owners and members can easily understand the differences between permission levels. Users will be able to hover over the information icon for more details.

Permissions
This will impact the site creation process for end users that create sites from the SharePoint start page, and for admins that create sites from the admin center.


What you need to do to prepare:

No action is required of you. These updates will make the site creation process easier to understand and will not change how new sites are created.
