SharePoint 2013: Working on it…

Filed under: SharePoint — Tags: — frederique @ 21:20

Hey, that’s my line! But the 2013 version of SharePoint also tells me that it is working on it, when it is loading a page or processing a change.

Working on it...

Working on it...

It is good to know that my team site is working on it. And it is even better that the team site allows me to be working on the content that I come here for.

One of my gripes with the team sites we now have in SharePoint 2010 (Online) is that my working area is too small.The Quick Launch menu is very useful, but it is in the way when I have list and libary views with many columns.
In the new SharePoint 2013, you can click on the icon Focus on content. That moves the menu out of the way, so can use the full width of the screen as a working area:

The interface for working on your documents has changed a bit as well. Instead of that menu that you can pull from the arrow that appears when you hover over the title or filename, we now have these dots… that indicate that you can do something… working on it…
