The New Page Model – Document and Image

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIn the demos below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, describes the new page model Image and Document web parts.

The new page model is just what it says: new. So when Peter recorded the demos below, the site option did not work for neither images nor documents, and the link option in the Image web part was not there at all. However, when this article is published all options work as they should.

The new page model Document web part

Office documents can be embedded in new model pages in the same way as in wiki pages, and this embedding also gives the same options for download and save as PDF.

Documents can be added to the new page in three ways:
  • From files recently used on the site
  • From files stored on the site
  • From files on the computer

PowerPoint and Word documents only have one settings option: which slide/page to start on. Excel files give more options, because here you can decide which part of the file should be displayed.

The new page model Image web part

Images can be added to the Image web part in the same way as a document is added to the Document web part, but there is a fourth option: a link to an image in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online.

There are just two options beside the actual image: An image caption can be written below the image and an alternative text can be added.

Since this demo was recorded, Microsoft has added another web part for images to modern pages: Image Gallery.
