Microsoft Begins Rolling out SharePoint Hub Sites

Announced at Ignite in 2017, Microsoft is now ready to start rolling out SharePoint hub sites but there is a catch as it’s not coming to everyone today. The company is only rolling them out to Targeted Release customers but it’s not all bad news for those anxious to get their hands on this new feature.

While Targeted Release customers are starting to receive the feature and the company expects this initial rollout to take one month, a worldwide rollout is expected to happen in early May. Even though that’s obviously not today, you don’t have to wait too much longer as the bits make their way through the final layers of testing.

As a quick refresher, here is what this feature brings to your intranet:
