What’s the difference between Team Site and Team Site - SharePoint Online Configuration?

Posted Monday, February 10, 2014 9:33 AM by CoreyRoth

I was creating some new site collections recently and I noticed a new site template under the Enterprise tab of the new site collection interface labeled Team Site – SharePoint Online configuration

SPONewSiteCollectionTeamSiteSPOConfiguration

I was curious so I provisioned a new site collection with that template to see what made it so special.  It turns out, not much.  I also deployed a site using the regular Team Site template on the Collaboration tab.  The only difference I could find was on the home page.

Here is a screenshot of the standard Team Site template:

Here is what the new Team Site – SharePoint Online configuration template looks like:

SPOTeamSiteSPOConfigurationHomePage

Can you spot the difference?  The new site template is slightly more social.  It has a link to the Newsfeed in the navigation.  From what I can tell that’s the only difference.  I compared features and even looked at both sites through SharePoint Designer and couldn’t tell any other difference.  Basically, if you want a newsfeed link in your navigation, go with the new template.

Thanks for sharing!

Even if there is not much to say about the difference you just saved me time for figuring this out on my own!
