What's new in the SharePoint admin center

We're continuously adding new features to the new SharePoint admin center (preview) and fixing issues we learn about. Here's a summary of what's included, and what's coming up. You can help us improve the admin center by sending us your suggestions and reporting bugs you encounter. In the lower-right corner of the admin center, click the Feedback button.


The new SharePoint admin center (preview) is supported in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted release option in Office 365. This means that you may not yet see some features described in this article.
