Add a page to a site

Using pages is a great way to share ideas using images, Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents, video, and more. You can create and publish pages quickly and easily, and they look great on any device.

When you create a page, you add and customize web parts with a toolbox available right in the editing pane. And, you can publish with just a click.


  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the First Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

  • You must be a site owner or SharePoint administrator to add pages.

  • If you are a site owner but you are unable to add a page, your administrator may have turned off the ability to do so.
