Contoso Drone Landing Site

This is the modern way of building a welcome site leveraging the communication site template and many webparts.

The welcome page brings together example news, events and other content to demonstrate the possible information you can bring together in SharePoint Online.

You can also further extend the experiences by adding custom web parts, adjusting the layout and adding more page content.

Template content

Template contains following structures and assets:

  • New site collection using communication site template, unless applied on top of existing site
  • Custom welcome page
  • 10 news articles with example content
  • Sample PDF files in the Documents library
  • Sample image content used in the template

Notice - If applied on top of existing communication site, welcome page content will be overridden.

Note - There might be small differences between the screenshot from the SharePoint look book and the end results of the template. Template automation will get you as close as possible given certain API level limitations. Templates are also designed to be as independent as possible, which has resulted some compromises on the implementation.
