Newly added features in SharePoint 2016

  • UI Changes and App Launcher: It gives enhanced user interface and app launcher allows users to take quick actions like view files from OneDrive for Business, send email, look at the sites user is a member of.
  • Enhanced Document Library UI: an entire new way with Page landmarks for easier navigation and keyboard shortcuts for document tasks.

  • Image and Video Preview: When you upload images and videos to a document library in SharePoint server 2016, you can see a preview by hovering the mouse over the image or video, or by clicking on them.

  • Microsoft Project Server 2016 (PWA) integrated to SharePoint 2016: Newly added features and capabilities of Project Server 2016 Preview for the project managers.

  • Larger file support: SharePoint 2016 removes the restriction on file upload limit completely, but Microsoft recommends not to go beyond 10GB.
  • Expanded Support for special characters: It can be used in file names which were previously blocked.

  • Improved Threshold limit by providing Auto Indexing: An automated creation of Indexed Columns which will allow user to go beyond this threshold.
  • Fast Site Collection Creation: A rapid site collections and sites creation method.

  • Durable Links: It retain the links when file names are renamed or moved within SharePoint.

  • SMTP Connection encryption for outgoing email: It supports sending email to SMTP servers which use STARTTLS connection encryption.

  • Cloud Hybrid Search: Provides unified search experience where on-premise indexed content is also available searchable from Office 365.

  • Open Document Format (ODF): Adds support for Open Document Format (ODF) files with document library templates which enables users to create new files in a document library and save as ODF files.
  • Zero downtime patching: The size and and number of packages are reduced in SharePoint 2016. The downtime for updating SharePoint servers has also been removed.

 

Deprecated features from SharePoint Server 2016

  • Standalone Install Mode
  • SharePoint Foundation
  • SharePoint Designer
  • Forefront Identity Manager Client (FIM)
  • InfoPath
  • Tags & Notes
  • Excel Services
  • STSADM

 

Upgrade Considerations:  There is no supported upgrade from Share Point 2010 directly to 2016. Existing sites and Content DB should be running under Share Point 2013. The upgrade process remains the same as in Share Point 2010 – Share Point 2013. Content Databases can be detached from SharePoint 2013 and attached to SharePoint 2016.
