As we announced on February 27, the new Office 365 service is out of “Preview” and available to try and buy today. We received tons of actionable feedback resulting in new features customers want, improved performance, simple user experiences, more admin controls and the stability they expect. SharePoint Online (SPO) customers will soon be able to self-upgrade to the new SharePoint Online experience – a new user interface, global Office 365 navigation and a whole set of new features and supported scenarios. You can go here to read all about “What’s new in SharePoint Online–top 10.”
This article focuses on the coming upgrade experience for existing SharePoint Online customers. New customers will receive these features without any effort on their part.
You can learn about all the Office 365 service upgrade options at the broader Office 365 Service Upgrade Center, including what you need to know about Exchange Online, Lync Online and Office client..
SharePoint Online Site Collection Owners will be able to choose when to upgrade – on their terms. They will be able to ensure due-diligence testing before committing to the new experience. Once you know your sites are working properly, you can perform all these activities all at once with the Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Online.
Your tenancy is currently running on the new Sharepoint 2013 platform in a state we call “2010 Mode.” “2010 Mode” refers to the previous SharePoint 2010 user experience for the SharePoint Online service. We’re excited to soon offer you methods to migrate the user experience to “2013 Mode” – or what we’ve been communicating as the new SharePoint Online; we do not version SharePoint in Office 365 – it is simply evergreen as SharePoint Online.
Once you receive your upgrade notification and are ready to proceed, you can approach SharePoint Online upgrade in three ways:
Note: for My Sites, there is only an action for the SharePoint Online Admin from within the SharePoint Online Admin Center, similar to the first bulleted action above “Manually upgrade” - navigate to the –my parent site, ex: https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com – not an individual’s My Site, and then enable site collection upgrade. Once upgraded, users will be automatically queued for upgrade the next time they visit their My Site. They will see a pop-up dialog box and they should leave the default selections as is and click OK.
To help plan and upgrade effectively, please see the new "Plan to upgrade your SharePoint Online environment to the 2013 experience" Office.com article for more detail.
The new SharePoint Online experience awaits you. Please take time to review the available documentation and the suggested steps to ensure a seamless transition for your company. Ensure you build in the right amount of time to test the new capabilities and look & feel before committing to it.
You are more in control than ever during your upgrade experience. With a little effort, you will be able to quickly determine the method that provides the right level of testing, allowing you to quickly move to the latest Office 365 has to offer. Let us know via the Office 365 Community forums how you are doing and what we can do to help.
