Tools and templates for internal communication

Drive awareness and engagement for your internal stakeholders and adopters through a beautiful SharePoint communication site. SharePoint communication sites aren’t limited to the content on the front page. They are a place on the intranet for your project, team, department, or division to gather and track data, keep everyone up-to-date with news, tasks and deadlines, and connect everyone to all the resources they need across Office 365 and other services through pages, lists, and libraries.
