A lot of new features have been added to the document library of SharePoint 2013. In this blog I will show a few of these new features.
Try out the new Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise Preview for yourself!
Create new documents
The drop-down menu has been replaced by a good looking popup panel.
Preview of selected document
A fancy new preview panel is added. Click on the dots beside a document and view a fully scrollable preview of the document.
Follow a document
Not only whole sites can be followed. Click in the preview panel on follow to follow individual documents.
Search in document library
A search box has been added to the document library. Without a page reload or page redirect the search will be executed directly on the document library!
The process of uploading documents is changed and works a lot faster. Just drag the document(s) onto the document library!
Small order and filter changes to active views can be saved very quickly. Just change the view and click on the save this view link.
1. Change the sort order of a view.
Changing views changed a little bit in a good way. The first three views will be displayed above the documents and by clicking on the name the view will be loaded. Clicking on the dots will collapse a menu which shows all the remaining views, nice and simple.
