Your new SharePoint start page

Your new SharePoint start page

SharePoint Online is improving the way you work by personalizing your new start page. The new free-flowing design helps you stay focused on your work, rather than looking for frequently used files and sites. Your new start page is ready for you set up right away--no setup needed.
