If choosing photography for your header image, do look for images that are abstract and textural in nature to add depth; don’t use people photos because they tend to get cut off in awkward places due to the responsive nature of modern SharePoint. No headless humans here!
If your landing page is on a site’s home page, you can add a header by using a full-width column with an image web part. Ensure your images aren’t too tall so that they don’t push your content down too far.
If your landing page is on a content page, you can choose either the image and title layout or the overlap layout to showcase your image.GO Feature
Wayfinding in modern SharePoint can be tricky. One of the ways we’ve tried to improve this experience is by creating a breadcrumb web part, which is available in our GO Intranet product. We like to include this on our pages to help users make sense of where they are in a site.
The text web part can be used in a few different ways on your landing page:
You can give visual priority to the links you anticipate users might be looking for or the ones they use most often by putting them in a strong background section. To help users get where they need to go, use text web parts with titles and descriptions and add a button as a call-to-action.
It’s time to add a navigational element of your landing page! Navigational elements give users links to the content related to your category, domain or department. We suggest you break up your quick links sections based on pages that live on the intranet versus related resources:
We love the versatility of the quick links web part. Explore these layouts, based on your content needs:
If you want to showcase news or announcements that are specific to your category, department or domain, you can add a news web part to this page. To roll up news related to this topic only, you will need your own site on the intranet. For example, if you want to showcase news specific to benefits, you will need a benefits site.
The people web part links directly to a content author, giving users someone to talk to if they get stuck or can’t find what they’re looking for. If your content is owned by a team rather than an individual, you can use text links to link to group emails, such as email@example.com.
If your category, department or domain has a featured document or resource, you can highlight it for users with the hero web part. Keep this content fresh. Users will start to ignore it if it gets stale.GO Feature
On a landing page, you can use accordions to anticipate and answer questions that people might have about your content with an FAQ. Typically, we suggest placing FAQs at the bottom of a landing page. We want to avoid pushing key links down the page and allow users first try to find what they’re looking for 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 landing pages on modern SharePoint:
