A lot of changes have been happening in Office 365/SharePoint Online recently. Followers of my blog will already have read the articles:

Now that the new lists have arrived I thought I better make this series complete the a new complete overview about the latest new features is here.

Lists however seem to be more complicated than libraries. So there may still be a few more posts to follow. As I’m writing this blog post I realised that Flow and PowerApps deserve their own posts.

When you visit a new look list for the first time you get the introduction screens again:
