Navigation can single handily destroy any SharePoint implementation. How you ask? If your users cannot easily find what they are looking for in 3 clicks or less they lose focus, and decide to use something else which means user adoption declines. However, that is not the only issue that can occur with navigation, one of the most popular ones I see is navigation that takes the users to another page or site then to another and another and another. I guess the good thing is they eventually get there but the bad news is now they are going to bookmark or make it a favorite so that they never have to repeat those steps. Sounds like a great solution for the users right? Actually, it's the worst thing that can possibly happen to your SharePoint implementation. The basis of implementing SharePoint within an organization is collaboration and if the users are bookmarking sites then they are missing all the information the company is trying to share with their organization. The home page becomes obsolete, editors of the sites stop updating it and then collaboration only (hopefully) exists within the content sites and the company fails in communication.
In this session we will review the “classic” navigation within the classic team sites as well as the new Cascading and Mega Menu within the new modern sites. Once we understand our options for navigation we will review navigation best practices, how to clean up your existing navigation to make it more relevant, easy to use and turn it into the wow factor of your site. Last but not least some tips and tricks on how to get your users excited about SharePoint, the content being shared and your new navigation!
