Don’t fall victim to the old intranet trends – keep the heading for this web part conversational! Try “who to ask for help” instead of “key contacts.”
Provide users with a shortcut to items related to the how-to content. Using fluent icons in a quick link web part is a great way to help users anticipate what will happen when they click on that link.
Make sure your content authors are playing by the rules! Use consistent icons so users know what to expect.
Let’s get creative! There are a few ways we suggest leveraging out-of-the-box web parts to make your content look awesome and be more effective for users:
Try separating the step number from the step information and playing with text weights and colour. This is a good opportunity to bring in your theme-primary (aka your primary theme colour) to add hierarchy and a little splash of colour.
Dividers are your friend! You can use them to break up sections of your content, such as different sets of steps for different audiences.
We love white space, and you should too! Adding space between different content helps users know how content is grouped. The great thing about the spacer web part is that you can choose how big you want the space to be. Even something as small as 16px can make a huge difference!
Using different section backgrounds combines pieces of content into chunks and makes it easier for users to jump between areas on pages with a lot of content. Use lighter colours to break up content and bolder colours to call attention.GO Feature
The accordion web part allows you to group content and shorten the length of a page. Users can scan the topics and click to read more about the information that’s relevant to their task. On a how-to page, you can use accordions to anticipate and answer questions that people might have about your content with an FAQ. Typically, we suggest placing an FAQ at the bottom of a page so that users can first read the content and learn things on their own. Keep the number of accordions to a minimum and remember the job of the page. We don’t want this turning into an exhaustive list!
Here’s how these web parts might work together to create different how-to pages on modern SharePoint:
