Design studio
Power Pages design studio provides a simplified experience to create and customize a website. As a maker, you can use the Pages, Styling, Data, and Setup workspaces to customize many aspects of your website within a single interface.

Power Pages Home provides a single view of all your websites in an environment and allows you to create additional sites using the available templates.

Learn hub helps makers learn how to build sites end-to-end through documentation, guided tutorials, and videos.

Administration and governance
Administration and governance capabilities enable administrators to efficiently manage, configure, and maintain websites. These features allow administrators to:

  • View website details, capacity consumption reports, and other site information from the Power Platform admin center.
  • Use self-service diagnostic tools, such as the portal checker, to identify and resolve common issues in websites.
  • Configure integration with other services (for example, SharePoint and Power BI), restrict access by IP address, enable maintenance mode, and other administration options.

Template hub and prebuilt templates
The template hub provides a set of predefined industry-specific and cross-industry website patterns available to makers when creating new sites. The new sites created from these templates have a set of working features and functionalities to address business scenarios. Makers can modify the sites created from templates to reflect their brand and customize the functionality to address their own requirements.

In 2022 release wave 2, makers will be able to select the Dynamics 365 templates from within the template hub. There will also be more templates added to address more industry scenarios.
