Content Type New Button Order supported in the SharePoint modern document library experience

Microsoft are enabling support for the Content Type New Button Order feature in the modern experience in SharePoint Online document libraries. This change will begin rolling out today, July 15th and is expected to complete by the end of the month.
Previously, document libraries that had this feature configured would automatically revert to classic mode. This will no longer happen, and custom content type cdf718fa-d792-40fc-8026-00c3b80b9e05ordering will be reflected in the new menu in the modern document library UX.
This may result in some users seeing the modern document library for the first time. There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change.

During this scheduled maintenance, your SharePoint content will be read-only for up to 60 minutes during off-peak hours, and will occur between July 18 and July 31.

Mobile Management is moving to the Security & Compliance Center

Microsoft are moving the Mobile Management page from the Office 365 admin center to the Security & Compliance Center and renaming it Device Management. With this change, you’ll now have one place to set up Mobile Device Management (MDM), create device security policies, and manage the devices that are connected to your organization. They started rolling this out on July 8th, and the roll out will be completed by the end of July.

This what the Security and Compliance Center currently looks like before the update.


You’ll find the Device Management page in the ‘Device Security policies’ section of the Security & Compliance Center.
