For the past year-and-something I have been unable to add Vimeo videos to my List.ly collection, as they did not show well. Yesterday I tried again and it turns out it works again. The only problem is that they have changed their business model, so I can only add new videos to my existing list until I pay…
Let me share some recent finds with you, while I ponder what to do. (Suggestions welcome, although the thought of moving all those vids to the 4th platform does not really make me happy; the thought of paying is not much better 🙂 )
As we are launching our intranet in a few weeks, I have decided to do only demo’s this time.
1. The Vine (Financial Services, USA)
Intranet demo for a bank. The intranet looks quite friendly, and not very corporate. It has to do with the font that they use for headers. Interesting to see that makes such a difference! The intranet has many pages and a deep structure, from the look of menu’s and all.
I like the request to update your profile, although they ask too many things, in my opinion. But hey, if it works for them, that’s all that matters!
Tip for presenters: do not move your cursor around too much while talking. It can make your audience restless. Instead, try to keep your cursor at the exact item you would like to show.

2. 4Cs Connect (Insurance, UK)
I really need to make a list of all intranets called “Connect”. There are so many! 🙂 This one is based on SharePoint.
Very nice overview of this intranet, which looks pretty clean and has a megamenu in the top navigation. It explains the basics in a straightforward way, together with text balloons. The voice is a tad mechanic, I wonder if the narrator is trying too hard be very neutral.
I realy like the clear and concise explanation of the search function, the call for feedback, and the instructions for mobile. It is really a good inspiration for our own video-to-be! s

3. Intranet for VIB (Flemish research institute – Belgium)
Well, this must be computer-spoken as the words sometimes have an incorrect intonation. This makes it a bit boring to listen to.
Clean-looking intranet, with several personalization options and a very nice People finder! (Microsoft, can you take a good look, please?) I also like their Roadmap, and the fact that it is visible to everyone.
Uploaded: June 2021.
4. Sioen (Industrial textiles – Belgium)
The spoken word in Dutch, with English subtitles. Now and then you will see that it has been built on SharePoint.
I really like their shared documentation, such as standard materials, business presentations, templates and logo’s. Having those in one central place can save everyone time!
2. Teaser for a country-regional intranet (in French)
I thought by now we would not need to think of an intranet as “something from the future” anymore, but this teaser has the space theme all over it. The visuals are very nice, though. The intranet is called Y-Connect (“Connect” appears to be a very popular names for intranets these days). I am not sure what they mean to say exactly with the examples, but apparently YConnect is dynamic, intuitive and efficient.
Uploaded May 2021.
3. Two teasers for Kelloggs (breakfast cereals)
And guess what…this intranet is called K-Connect! 🙄 The first one contains a lot of puns, based on Kellogg’s products.
The second one gives a little more information, such as the reasons for change and what they aim to achieve. I think it is a nice idea to have speakers with various accents from across the world; it shows that this is a global intranet. Oh, and it is on SharePoint!
Uploaded May 2021.
4. Intranet explanation series for a solar panel installation business.
This is a series of videos, about 20 minutes in total, for the launch of the intranet at this USA organization. This intranet is called Freedom Forum.
The Opening video shows a nice journey metaphor, although I am no fan of those “real-time hand-drawn images” (for lack of a better description, I know it is an animation), as I find this very distracting. The “one stop shop” idea is still very much alive here. In the Closing video there’s a few calls to action. All in all, nicely done. I am showing the Opening and Closing here, but these are the others:
We all know that your personal mailbox, agenda and personal documents will be deleted some time after you leave the organization.
But recently we have seen that more and more team content is stored (and automagically shared) on personal OneDrives, which means that when someone leaves, that shared content will be deleted and lost. Owners may not be aware that they are the owner of the video, file or Whiteboard, and that these resources live on their OneDrive. Colleagues of leaving employees may be in for several unpleasant surprises.
I tried to compile a list of things to look for, so if you are the leaver, you can check these items and decide if they needed to be handed over. You will save your colleagues, your manager and your Microsoft365 admins a lot of hassle!
Yes, the manager will have control of your OneDrive for some time after you have left, but
do they know enough about the details of your work to know what to keep and what to let go?
do you really want to burden them with this?
do you want to leave your remaining colleagues in the dark about team stuff?
If you know that a colleague is leaving, you may want to help him/her with checking NOW which content you need after they have gone.
Step 1: Teams Meetings
Are you the organizer of a regular Teams meeting? The meetings will keep running, but nobody will be able to change dates or times, add or delete invitees, or manage the meeting details. At this moment it is not possible to transfer the ownership, but I think that is in the Roadmap. It is therefore important to either
Stop or cancel the meeting, and ask a colleague to re-schedule it. This will mean that meeting links and resources will change. This is the best suggestion for smaller meetings.
For meetings with many attendees, a collague can duplicate the event by opening the meeting, clicking on the … and then “Duplicate event”. The meeting will the be copied with the same invitees. The new owner can then remove the old organizer and make sure times and recurrence is OK. This will send a message to all people in the meeting, but in any case you do not have to add them all again. This will also change link and resources.
Check meeting chats for important files or attendee reports or recordings that needs to be safe-guarded in SharePoint.
Step 2: Regular files – copy or move to Teams/SharePoint or delete
Microsoft Teams Chat Files : everything you have shared in private chats
Do you realize that all those screenshots, funny videos and other stuff, that you have ever shared in a private chat (which means: not shared in a Teams channel) live on your OneDrive and will therefore be lost when you leave? It will not be big issue for that silly gif that made your colleague smile when they were feeling down, but there may be relevant documents or screenshots that your colleagues want to keep.
So, you can either check the Microsoft Teams Chat Files folder in your OneDrive, or scroll through your private chats. Upload the files to a relevant Teams/SharePoint site or send them as attachment to your colleagues. (Usually not recommended, but they will need their own document)
Microsoft Teams Data: Meeting notes from Teams meetings
This contains the Meeting Notes you have created in Teams meetings. I personally do not use this very often to take notes, as I think the functionality is rather limited, but it is helpful in emergencies. Additionally, it does not open easily from OneDrive, I had to select an app to open it (it is an .mht file).
Do you have Meeting Notes that you would want to keep? Copy the text into a Word or OneNote document in the relevant Teams/SharePoint site.
Recordings: Videos from Teams meetings
Another shared resource that is being stored in a personal location. Make sure you move the video(s) that need to be kept to Stream or Teams/SharePoint.
Whiteboards: Sketching sessions (can be from Teams meetings)
At this moment Whiteboards are still stored in Azure, but they will follow the Recording path and be stored in the OneDrive of the person who creates the Whiteboard. This is expected to happen in October 2021, according to the Microsoft Roadmap.
I expect you will be able to copy/move Whiteboards, and I will update this post when I know more.
Forms – files from “File Upload” questions will be in a folder called Apps
If the Form will still be running after you leave, please move ownership of the Form to a relevant Teams/SharePoint site as mentioned above. If you still need these uploaded files, whether the Form is still running or not, please move them to the appropriate Teams/SharePoint site.
Power Automate workflows are not stored in your OneDrive, but they are personal. Your Flow will keep running (if it is not something in your personal apps, of course) but if it needs an authentication, or needs an edit, it will need a new owner.
You can simply share the Flow with a colleague, so you co-own the Flow.
If you have not done that before you leave, your Administrator will be able to hand it over to your colleague. But hey, your Admin is usually busy enough and all those individual fixes take a lot of time! 🙂
Do you have any instruction videos that may be useful later, or do you have any old meeting recordings that should be kept? In Stream, go to “My content” and then “Videos” and see what needs to be transferred. Open the video in question, click the … and select “Update video details”. See screenshot.
For lists in a SharePoint site, you do not necessarily have to change ownership, as generally all Owners will be owner of the List.
For personal lists, that live somewhere in your OneDrive, it may not be so easy. You will have to recreate the list in a SharePoint site. You can use the Excel file as a basis (see my earlier posts on the topic). I hope Microsoft will make moving a personal list to a SharePoint site easier in future!
Make sure you appoint another Owner if you are the only one (which is not a good idea, I always suggest to have at least 2 Owners for backup)
You may also want to check the permissions to content that is important for the team, and make sure it will still have an Owner after you have left. Appoint another Owner or, even better, make sure that the permissions of that content follows the permissions of the site.
Have I missed anything?
Or do you have any experiences or suggestions to share? Please let me know!
Update 7 June 2021:
Good addition from Loryan Strant, I do not have too much experience with the apps mentioned (except for OneNote, of course) but be aware if you are using them!
I have a few intranet videos lined up that I would like to share.
1. Mobile app for a German wind turbine service organization.
This teaser is quite nice as it shows the benefits of the new intranet app for a real-life person, in this case a service engineer. It is a little rehearsed, but it is good to see someone NOT in the office sitting in front of a PC.
It sounds as if the intranet is for corporate info but also plays a large part in keeping the organization connected.
There’s a QR code at the end, and yes, you will be able to download the app, but you can not log on, of course. The next video (no sound) shows what you can do when you have downloaded the app and have signed in. It also has some nice suggestions for your profile picture.
Uploaded April 2021.
2. Demo for a new school intranet
This demo is first of all nice because it is SharePoint, and quite recent as you can see the App bar. The content is what you would expect from a school intranet, with information about the curriculum and exams, a Staff Hub and a Student Hub and so forth. It is quite long with more than 7 minutes, but it is a good showcase of SharePoint site functionalities.
The intranet is for a scondary school in New Zealand.
Uploaded May 2021.
3. Teaser/demo for a revamp
A subtle, tongue-in-cheek teaser for the redesign of an old (SharePoint) intranet that was outdated and looked it, too! The new design does not look like SharePoint, but when you look at the tablet and phone display, you will see it is the SharePoint app. I assume they have some “shell” around it. This revamp was done in 2018, so around the time that the new SharePoint site designs were introduced. If only they had known! But I am guessing here.
This intranet is for a US state child support programme.
Uploaded May 2021.
4. Introduction/teaser for managers
This is a video for managers of a company that works in the construction & engineering, operations & maintenance, staffing, security and defense business in the USA. It informs management of the revamp of their intranet. It could have been a nice teaser, but instead it is a rather overloaded PowerPoint, both content-wise and visually. I do not think that management will be interested in the name of the platform (it is not SharePoint, although they appear to use sites), for instance. They will be interested in what’s new and how it will help the organization communicate or engage or perform better.
I was quite shocked at the Must-Reads: information that employees will have to confirm they read it. Although I sometimes wish we had that at my organization, I think it is going too far – you will end up with a ton of mandatory reading as everyone will think that their info is essential.
Well, I will be curious what management thinks as the preview will be on May 25th and the launch is June 2nd!
Around this time the default location to store Teams meeting recordings will change from Microsoft Stream to
SharePoint if this is a Channel meeting (In the SharePoint folder of the Channel, in a new folder called “Recordings”.)
OneDrive of the person who records, for any other meeting (in a new folder called “Recordings”)
20 days download option for the person who records, if they have an F3 license
According to Microsoft this is because a video is a document and should therefore live with and managed like a document. A recording will benefit from regular document management options, security and permissions, and the ability for external sharing.
In theory, this makes sense. In practice, there are some things you may want to know. In my organization we have chosen to switch early so we could control the switch date and make sure to have proper communication and support available. We have a few months of experience by now.
1. Stream is still not accessible for externals. Will it ever be?
When I was working with Office365 video (it must have been around 2015), we were told that it’s follow-up Stream would be accessible for externals. Until now, I have not seen any evidence or announcement of that. So storing meeting recordings in Stream has always been unpleasant for webinars and meetings with externals. You had to download the video from Stream and send or share it from OneDrive or SharePoint.
2. Spreading videos over 4 different locations is confusing (Stream, OneDrive, SharePoint, download)
We have been using the new locations for a few months now and boy, does this confuse people! You need a lot of words to explain where videos are stored. Many people are not aware of their license, or of the meeting type, or of their power when they record the meeting. And then you have all your earlier recordings still living in Stream. 😦
3. Storing recordings on the OneDrive of the “button-pusher” is confusing
We have had a few questions from meeting organizers about the recordings, where someone other than the organizer recorded the meeting. When something needed to be done, e.g. sharing the video with external attendees afterwards, or a bit of editing, or removing the video, the organizer did not know where to go. When I explained the situation, it happened that the “button-pusher” was on holiday, had no time or was unwilling to cooperate.
As the organizer already has so many unique powers in a Teams meeting, would it not make sense if the recording was always stored in the OneDrive of the organizer? And perhaps with a 20-day download option in case the meeting is organized by a group mailbox? (Which does not have a license, hence no OneDrive)
4. Your OneDrive and/or SharePoint must be accessible for externals
That is, if you want to share recordings with external parties. As you know, external participants can not watch the recording of meetings by default, even if they have a Microsoft365 account. In my organization the OneDrives have the option to share with externals, but not all our SharePoint sites allow external access. In some cases we can make external access available with little effort, but not for every site type. If your organization does not want that, you will be unable to share with externals, so you will have to send large files around. 😦 This is not a big difference with the earlier situation on Stream, but Microsoft assumes external access by default, making it sound easier than it sometimes is.
5. This will add another folder to your systems
The recordings from a regular meeting will create a new folder in the OneDrive of the person who records, called “Recordings”. A Channel meeting recording will create a new subfolder in your Channel documents, also called “Recordings”. This is not a big deal but you may want to tell people about all those folders that they themselves have not created. Some time ago I wrote an overview of all system-created folders in your OneDrive.
6. Stream can play videos at different speed
If you have a video in Stream, you can play it at different speeds. Click on the gear wheel under the video, click “Playback speed” and select the speed. You can not do this in OneDrive or SharePoint.
7. Stream has (limited) video editing options
If you want to do something with your video for the long term, you will probably want to use the best part only. In Stream, you can trim the beginning and end off your video if needed. There are no other editing options, but this option is useful AND more than what OneDrive and SharePoint have to offer. So, if you want to remove the start and end bits of a recording, you will have to upload your meeting recording to Stream OR use another video editing tool. Please, can we have some editing options in OneDrive and SharePoint too?
8. Stream has caption, subtitle and other video options
This is perhaps not very relevant for the meetings that you record for people who could not attend, or to make sure you have captured the notes correctly, but these functionalities certainly add value for a webinar or an instruction video.
9. Adding a Form works better in SharePoint
In Stream you can add a Forms, as a poll or a survey. In is rather strange – there is a side panel where I would expect the Poll to show up, but it is actually shown on the location of the video. Also, you have to specify a time, which could be nice for a quiz, but not for a general question.
In SharePoint, you can create a nice page with an embedded video and a Form on the side.
10. Currently there are two messages when you save a Channel meeting.
My own tenant is still in Stream mode (mostly because I don’t do PowerShell 🙂 ) and I am currently getting a message when I stop the recording.
On Teams desktop it says: “After the meeting, you can find this recording in the channel conversation or on Microsoft Stream.”
On Teams for the web you get: “Recording is being saved. Recording has stopped. You can find the link to the recording in meeting chat history.”
Not a big deal, but something you may want to be aware of.
Although the sharing and management of meeting recordings will be better when the recordings are stored on OneDrive or SharePoint, you miss out on specific video functionality. I would appreciate to have some basic video editing capabilities for OneDrive and SharePoint.
Has your organization made the switch to OneDrive and SharePoint? Do you have something else to add?
It has been some time since I shared some interesting videos, so that is what I will do today!
1. New intranet for an Australian building and furnishing organization
This is a nice intro, by the COO, about the new intranet. The intranet has three main aims:
Communication and engagement (news and featured stories)
Corporate memory and ideas (which is a form of Knowledge Management – yay!)
Employee support (forms and info)
Pleasant combo of a personal intro, the main goals of the intranet, and a walkthrough. It is SharePoint/Microsoft365-based. Do you notice what I noticed at the end of the video? 😁 Uploaded February 2021.
2. Teasers and launch video for a car lease organization.
Very conveniently these teasers and introduction video were uploaded at the same time.
The teasers are in very different styles. I wish I knew the why and how!
The promotion video itself is very short and text-based. I would have liked to see what the intranet looks like. This is for a car leasing organization in the UK. Uploaded February 2021.
3. New intranet for a Canadian investment company.
Smooth promo video for this organization. There’s a lot of content available from the homepage, lots of tabs and buttons and menu’s. Still it manages to look quite clean. You can personalize parts, e.g. select your location. There are some Microsoft365 hints, but the intranet does not look SharePoint-based. Uploaded February 2021.
4. WEAC – Wisconsin Education intranet
This video is 10 minutes long and needs some time to properly start, due to some internal discussions. This organization has actually retired their old, and introduced this new SharePoint-based intranet due to COVID-19. They envisaged a lot of working and studying from home, and their old intranet could not handle that. While Microsoft365 is of course accessible from anywhere on any device.
At around 4.30 the tour starts. There’s a big focus on links and documents (nicely grouped) and less on the news functionality, which is called Information and is SharePoint News in a list view. Perhaps this intranet page is intermediary, because the URL states that this is the IT-site. Uploaded March 2021.
5. Vertical Video! Intro for new social intranet at an Education recruitment organization.
This short intro by the managing director of this recruitment organization in the UK focuses on sharing good news on the new app Workvivo. The whole message looks a bit rehearsed, or maybe he is reading from an autocue. No screenshots or demo, sadly. Uploaded February 2021.
As this weekend is a bit weird (Happy New Year, BTW!) I thought I’d make things easy and entertaining with a new set of intranet promotion videos. I still have to decide what to do with my collection – transfer them all to a new platform (again!) or post a few here now and then? Suggestions welcome!
1. Wageningen University and Research – new intranet
This is the university where I got my degree in Food Technology – a long long time ago. A nice fresh non-SharePoint interface, with all the usual stuff like groups and news and personalization and a smartphone version. With background images of the town on Wageningen and a nice soundtrack. Uploaded September 2020 but the video is from 2017, if you look closely.
2. CPS Intranet Introduction to The Pulse
Long and complete walkthrough of the intranet of this American pharmacy organization. It is not very exciting, but they explain all parts. It does not look very interactive. The intranet branding is very similar to their website. Uploaded September 2020.
3. Wendel intranet relaunch
Nice, short intro to the revamp of this intranet (of a French investment company) with the original name of “Connect”. (I have worked for an organization that had an intranet called Connect – as are many other intranets) The new site looks pretty slick, and apparently the group seminar is very important! 🙂 Uploaded November 2020, but the video is from 2019.
4. British Psychological Society – Intranet Launch Video
Very nice, soft-spoken introduction and demo to BPS Insider, the intranet supposed “to keep you connected, informed and engaged”. Colourful design, lots of interaction, people search, good integration with IT-systems, and they talk about an “Office365 profile” but the intranet does not look like SharePoint. Curious to learn what the relationship is! Uploaded November 2020.
When people talk or write about Microsoft 365 Outlook, Word or Excel, they generally mean the desktop versions.
However, there are Microsoft365 subscriptions that provide only the web and mobile versions of things. With the ongoing improvements of the web apps these subscriptions are getting better and better.
Most of my therapist colleagues have the Microsoft365 F3 license, which is a good fit for people who mostly work with patients and use dedicated medical software as their main application. F3 has web and mobile apps only.
While the comparison with the Microsoft E3 license (which most secretaries and staff have) clearly display most of the limitations of the F3, (albeit in the small print) there’s a few unmentioned “surprises” so let me list all that we have found so far, while providing support to our F3 collagues.
1. No desktop apps
This is the most obvious limitation. I think Word and Outlook for the web are both pretty good and getting better all the time, but some advanced functions are only available in the desktop apps, e.g. creation of scientific literature citations, or creation of a book index in Word. An overview of the differences:
Yes, it is mentioned quite clearly (also in our own support materials) but we regularly get questions from people who have almost reached the limit. All we can do is provide them with help to clean up their Outlook and OneDrive.
This is also the reason why I was not happy with the recent change to store Teams meeting recordings to OneDrive.
3. You can not upload a video to Stream
Just to be clear: F3 people can consume videos from Stream but not create them. It is mentioned in the comparison. I do not really get this. Are F3 users not expected to share any videos? Not even of training materials or a team get-together? We have a few colleagues who like to do vlogs for their colleagues – no Stream for them. 😢
Fortunately, OneDrive and SharePoint now have good video players so I guess it will not be a big problem, apart from the storage space allocation. It does make me wonder what Stream is good for, then.
4. Recorded Teams meetings go nowhere
We made the change from storage in Stream to OneDrive and SharePoint early, because we knew that F3-users can not upload anything to Stream. If an F3 recorded a meeting, they got an error message. So we thought: “Well, OneDrive may not be optimal, but at least they will be able to store their recording in a good place. So let’s make the change, make them aware and suggest to move any recordings to SharePoint at their earliest convenience.”
The other day I recorded something with my F3 test account, and I was totally surprised to see that the recording did not go anywhere. It is in the meeting chat, with a message that it can be downloaded for 20 days. The good news is that the recording can be saved. The bad news is that this is not as expected, and that people will need to take action to store it.
5. You can not create a Live Event
This is not a major issue, as organizing a large online event will generally be done by a few selected roles. An executive secretary, our Convention Bureau, communications etc. An F3 colleague can produce and present, however, as described in this post.
This has nothing to do with the difference between web or desktop app – everyone in our organization has the Teams desktop app.
6. You do not have the Delve app
This is not mentioned anywhere in the comparison, so this was also a surprise when we found this. It is not too much of a limitation, as you can get there via your Office profile.
7. Agenda sharing issues with E3-colleagues
If an F3 colleague shares his or her agenda with an E3-licensed colleague, e.g. a group secretary, the secretary can only edit the agenda when using the Outlook web app. This may have to do with the fact that there is no “desktop equivalent” in the F3-agenda. It is annoying though, as our secretaries generally prefer to work with Outlook desktop. We are trying to convince them that the Outlook web app is a joy to use, but so far most of them stick to desktop. 😢
Do you know any more quirks?
I have deliberately not mentioned a number in the title. Please let me know in the comments if you know something else, so we can create a shared resource!
This is a great opportunity to use one of the more than gorgeous letters of Simon Koay’s Superbet. F = Flash!
My video collection has not seen many additions recently because List.ly still does not have their Vimeo API sorted out. 😢 And the best videos are on Vimeo. 😭
I now have to think how to proceed. Stop collecting videos, make one collection on YouTube and one on Vimeo, or move my collection to the 4th platform in 9 years? (I have used Delicious, Scoop.it, List.ly)? Which platform, and dare I ask my husband to do the work again? 🙂
I will let you know. In the meantime, here’s some nice stuff I found last week:
1. IntoWork, Australia
Very nice, but short, teaser/demo (silent) for a mobile intranet. Do you see the name in the blocks? Really cool and apparently they use Office365 too. There’s not much more to see, so no way to know if this is a good intranet. IntoWork is a community for recruitment, employment and education. Uploaded: September 2020
2. Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, Barcelona, Spain
Another SharePoint/Office365 intranet, always nice to see those! 🙂
This one is a long demo (silent) for a hospital in Barcelona, Spain, and it is in Catalan language. Ah, that takes me back to the times when I worked from “my Barcelona office”. Nice colour scheme, all the usual topics, and lot of documents. Even the organigrams are in documents, while you should be able to get them live from Delve or many other places. I like their document management system and will need to check that out, as we may start a project soon. Uploaded September 2020.
3. Estée Lauder Companies, USA – teaser
Very slick teaser for the launch of the new digital workplace for Estée Lauder Companies, which has been launched this week. Uploaded September 2020.
4. Estée Lauder Companies, USA – demo
Ultra-short demo for the new intranet for Estée Lauder Companies. “My ELC beta, your digital destination for everything ELC”. Cool! It complements video #3 but I guess you got that. Uploaded September 2020.
5. Teaser for ?
Apparently there have been many new intranet launches this week, because this organization has gotten a new one too! It does not mention the organization, but I think it is in financial services. I like the bold style, and it goes with the blog image ! 🍿 😁 Uploaded September 2020.
While List.ly is doing their best to get their Vimeo videos displayed properly, I thought I’d share a number of recent finds with you.
Where available, I have added related videos so you do not have 5, but 8 items to look at. In total, this should keep you busy for a little more than 30 minutes! 🙂
The logos are outdated so I guess the video is older than the upload date of February 2020. But as far as I can check in my one-person Delve, the functionality is still correct.
2. Your new intranet (in Portuguese)
Teaser for the upcoming new intranet at Samsonite Brazil. Uploaded March 2020.
3. CM3 SharePoint – your first walkthrough
Quite a long demo of this SharePoint intranet for a USA-based building services organization. This demo starts with the log-on process and it starts to get really interesting from 1.40 onwards, when the homepage is shown. I am fascinated by the colour scheme! It has a lot of useful content and other stuff. In their next video, they look a bit more at the homepage and the SharePoint functionalities and invite you to name the intranet (by completing a Form, of course!).
Uploaded March 2020.
4. Mobile app for real estate organization (builder) – in Dutch
Nice overview of the mobile (SharePoint-based) intranet-app for this Dutch real estate organization. They build houses but also own some DIY-shops in the Netherlands.
This mobile app has a ton of good stuff – News of course, colleague search, employee-stuff. It does not look like the native SharePoint app though.
Uploaded March 2020.
5. SmartSpace SharePoint intranet
Walkthrough of a SharePoint intranet for a software organization with offices in UK and USA. The look and feel is quite basic (just the company logo, not even their corporate colours) compared to the design of their proposal templates and website. They appear to do almost everything “corporate” in one site.
Having your Mission and Vision statement on the landing page must become boring after some time, but they may want to change that over time into News or something used frequently. I really like the fact they have a list of approved software (with details) as well as their project portfolio also in SharePoint lists.
