Save for Later in SharePoint News

What It Is:

Bookmarking is nothing new, and the Save for Later feature has been available in SharePoint Online for some time, but this small feature continues to be an important (and underrated) tool for individuals to keep important new and content organized. Along with the ability to pin the documents you’re working on within an application or on your desktop, this bookmarking capability has become essential.

High-level Description:


Save for later gets you back to the SharePoint content you care about! Throughout the app, save news, pages and files to easily get back to them through the Me tab – within the Saved list. And when you’re finished, simply Remove from saved and get on with your day. [Read More]
