SharePoint Online has some non-code options to add logo’s, colour schemes and conditional formatting on sites and apps. There are also options to add in coded customisations. This course will give you guidance on how to use the non-code options available with practical labs to practice these methods. We will also give guidance on the code options giving advice on where to look for the resources to do this. This course will not cover how to write the code for the non-standard customisations.

Module 1: Branding in SharePoint Online

The story of SharePoint alone is a complex one. SharePoint has a lengthy history with many versions hosted on local IT servers and global cloud services. This evolution from on-premises to cloud has guided the visual appearance and functionality of SharePoint. So, understanding its history is essential for appreciating the diverse options for customising SharePoint’s interface.

In this module we will journey through the product’s rich history, leading us to understanding the biggest impact on branding which was the move from the older classic user interface to the modern interface. You will also learn that although there are some changes that you can make in the web browser, you may also require a complement of free applications to aid your efforts.

  • Know which tools are required and which are optional for branding SharePoint Online.

 

Module 2: Managing modern themes

In this module our focus is on out of the box updates in SharePoint Online for those with branding in mind. When we refer to out of the box, we are talking about the menus and options available within the product for making changes without relying on additional tools. These range from local changes that impact your site to hub sites which allow your changes to impact all sites connected to the hub. Not only that, we can also make changes in the admin center of your Office 365 tenant, to implement an organisation brand.

Module 3: Creating custom themes

In our previous module we explored elements of a SharePoint Online site that could be customised without the need for additional tools. Although there was an array of settings that customise the theme and navigation for your site, we could not pick specific colours. We were only able to select from 12 available colours, which may not align to your branding.

In this module we will be showcasing the tools that can be used to customise the branding of a SharePoint site even further. Again, our focus is on the modern features in SharePoint, and we will be using SharePoint Designer 2013, the SharePoint Online Management Shell and Site Designs to customise SharePoint and propagate these changes.
