SharePoint 2016 contains a few new features. Here is a list of a few of these features which I am excited about.
File Size for uploads
The file size for uploads can be as large as 10 GB, with the previous file size being max. 2 GB.
List view threshold
The list view threshold is stated as greater than 5.000 and is different for specific actions. This will increase the performance of lists.
- Specifies the maximum number of list or library items that a database operation, such as a query, can process at the same time outside the daily time window set by the administrator during which queries are unrestricted.
- When adding or removing a column index, the threshold is 20,000 by default.
- When deleting a list or folder, the threshold is 100,000 by default.
- When renaming a folder within the same library, the threshold is 100,000 by default
Document library features
Change from details view to the new tiles view with a click.
New ribbon with quick to access features
New details view per document, including editing properties and sharing information
New and improved get (share) a link features, too easily send view and edit links.
When uploading a document into a document set through the drag and drop feature, the document will be uploaded directly into the document set without the user opening the document set.
Existing documents can be move into a document set through the drag and drop feature, the document will be moved directly into the document set without the user opening the document set.
It is possible to pin documents to the top of the document library through the feature ‘Pin to top’. This will allow users to pin the most important documents on a very quick to access location.
Every user is able to quickly see what the recent activities where within the document library.
