Branding SharePoint: Out with the Old and in with the New

For the longest time, the way SharePoint was branded was by customising master pages. Even though customising master pages are still supported it is not the recommended approach to take anymore when branding both on-prem and SharePoint Online sites. Because Microsoft updates SharePoint Online with new features on a regular basis, these updates can affect certain types of customisations especially when it comes to custom master pages. The recommended strategies are to avoid custom master pages and instead leverage SharePoint themes and/or O365 PnP (Patterns and Practices) development recommendations for making UI changes. The three main branding best practices with PnP are using an alternate CSS, implement JavaScript injection, and adopting the remote provisioning for ‘deploying’ components to your SharePoint sites. In this session, you will learn the basic concepts on the recommendations as well as see real-world examples.
