SharePoint Online Site Swap

Wondered how to get the old Classic Site and turn it into the new Modern Communication Site?

Microsoft started rolling out to tenants with less than 10k users this past week. All others will be taken care of by Halloween. Admins will be able to swap the SharePoint root site with another site using a new PowerShell cmdlet Invoke-SPOSiteSwap. The root site will be archived automatically. You must use the SharePoint Admin PowerShell version 16.0.8812.1200 or later.

How many times do you have something HR or Accounting related and didn't need the information to be shared with everyone? We didn't want to create extra teams just for that purpose as we would have hundreds of teams.

Often wonder what can guests do while in Microsoft Teams?

Other things that guests can do is participate in channels, conversations, chats, and meetings; they also can share files in channels, add new channels and use the Wiki.

So to be a guest an email address must be used to invite the user. Once the guest is invited to join your team they can start to interact with Microsoft Teams and its members of the team.
