At Collabsummit, everyone will get the chance to use and understand the new Microsoft SharePoint Server 2019, that comes with a multitude of new features that are worthy to be explored. One of the most appreciated features is the increased storage file size for SharePoint documents, which is now 15GB. Initially, SharePoint could only host 10Gb files in the server. The next big update includes a new, modern sharing experience that helps people organize their content easier and faster.

Since the whole platform became bigger, an improved search experience is needed. Microsoft implemented a new search experience in addition to the original one. The modern search experience includes updated search recommendations. The home page of the SharePoint platform is different now, as it gives users unified access. Developers made the old homepage available too, for people who prefer it. The new homepage meets the latest UI experience requirements.
