+
+## Focus on priorities with the Hero web part
+
+Let your team know whatΓÇÖs most important with high-impact hero images, company branding, and important news. The initial impact of the Leadership site home page is created by large and eye-catching images of the Hero web part. The layout used in this example is **Three tiles**.
+
+### Hero layout
+
+Editing the web part presents layout options. The **Tiles** option, such as the one shown below, presents layouts for between one and five tiles. The **Layers** option sets each image as a layer with the image next to the title. Up to five layers are possible, so that you can use the web part to fill the entire page.
+
+In this example, the Hero web part is in a full-width section.
+
+Use the **Move item** ![Image of the Move icon](media/gw-leadership/gw-move.png) button on the left to rearrange the tiles within the Hero web part.
+
+![Image of the Hero web part tile customization options](media/gw-leadership/gw-13.png)
+
+### Customize each tile
+
+When you select a tile, you'll see a toolbar at the bottom of the tile where you can select **Edit details** where you can change the link and image used. With the larger tile, you can also set call to action text and link. On the same toolbar, you can set focal point for the hover animation, plus zoom in and zoom out of the image.
+
+![Image of the Hero web part Edit details pane](media/gw-leadership/gw-14.png)

+
+[Back to top](#lets-get-started)
+
+## Share timely news with the News web part
+
+The News web part provides controls to choose the **News Source** and **Layout**, and to **Organize** and **Filter** the content. Under **Layout**, there are five options to adjust now news items are presented. In this example, news stories are coming the site as the source, and the **Top story** layout. The stories are presented side by side with large images because only two news stories on the site are published.
+
+In this example, the web part is in a one-column section.
+
+For more details on using the News web part, see [Use the News web part on a SharePoint page](https://support.microsoft.com/office/use-the-news-web-part-on-a-sharepoint-page-c2dcee50-f5d7-434b-8cb9-a7feefd9f165).
+
+[Back to top](#lets-get-started)
+
+## Connect to important resources with the Quick Links web part
+
+With the Quick links web part, you have the ability to easily create professional, on-page menus for listing links to other pages or sites. In this example, the web part is using the **Compact** layout, but other layouts, like Button and Filmstrip, are available.
+
+In this Leadership site example shown above, this web part is in the second column of a two-column section.
+
+![Image of the Quick links web part edit pane](media/gw-leadership/gw-15.png)

+
+## Keep communication fresh with the Yammer web part
+
+With Yammer, you can have organization-wide conversations. Now you can have those conversations right on your page with the Yammer **Conversations** web part. In this example, the conversation is being pulled from a Yammer group called Leadership.

+
+[Back to top](#lets-get-started)
+
+## Engage users with a second Hero web part
+
+The Hero web part doesn't have to be for the top of the page only. In this example, a second hero web part further down the page uses the **Layers** layout with two rows to display larger images.

+# Rename your SharePoint domain
+
+It's now possible to change the SharePoint domain name for your organization in Microsoft 365. For example, if the name of your organization changes from "Contoso" to "Fabrikam," you can change `contoso.sharepoint.com` to `fabrikam.sharepoint.com`.
+
+> [!IMPORTANT]
+> This preview is rolling out to organizations with the fewest sites first. It might not be available yet for your organization. This feature isn't available for organizations that have set up Multi-geo.
+
+> [!NOTE]
+> This change affects only SharePoint and OneDrive URLs. It doesn't impact email addresses. For info about changing a site address, for example, from `https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/sample1` to `https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/sample2`, see [Change a site address](change-site-address.md).

+## Step 1: Add the new domain name
+
+1. Check the availability of the new domain you want by entering the full SharePoint URL in your browser (for example, `https://fabrikam.sharepoint.com`). If you get a ΓÇ£not foundΓÇ¥ (404) error, it indicates the domain is most likely available. If the domain is already registered by another customer, we can't provide any information or contact the customer.
+
+ -or-
+
+ If you own the domain for another subscription, contact *NEED SPECIFIC INFO* for instructions on how to delete it. It typically takes 4-8 weeks to make the domain available.
+
+ > [!WARNING]
+ > Do NOT use the domain to test this procedure in a test environment first. If you do, you won't be able to use the domain for your production environment.
+
+2. Go to the [Custom domain names page in the Azure AD admin center](https://aka.msSPORenameAddDomain).
+
+3. Select **Add custom domain**.
+
+4. In the **Custom domain name** box, add the full new ΓÇ£.onmicrosoft.comΓÇ¥ domain, and then select **Add domain**.

+
+ > [!IMPORTANT]
+ > Do NOT include any hyphens (-) in the new domain. They aren't supported in SharePoint.
+
+5. Make sure you get a confirmation message. If the domain isn't available, try a different domain.
+
+6. After getting a confirmation that the domain was added successfully, you might see a message that the properties could not be found. Select the message to refresh domain references.
+
+ > [!WARNING]
+ > Do NOT add any other domains. Do NOT configure the new domain as the initial domain.
+
+7. Confirm that your domain has been added to the list.

+
+ > [!IMPORTANT]
+ > The domain name must have the status of "Verified."
+
+## Step 2: Use Microsoft PowerShell to rename your domain
+
+> [!WARNING]
+> Changing your SharePoint domain name might take several hours to days depending on the number of sites and OneDrive users that you have. We strongly recommend that you make this change during a period of low usage (like a weekend) and tell users to avoid accessing SharePoint and OneDrive content during the change. In addition, any actions that create new OneDrives and sites (such as creating a new team or private channel in Microsoft Teams) will be temporarily blocked during the rename.
+
+1. [Download the latest SharePoint Online Management Shell](https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=255251).
+
+ > [!NOTE]
+ > If you installed a previous version of the SharePoint Online Management Shell, go to Add or remove programs and uninstall "SharePoint Online Management Shell."
+
+2. Connect to SharePoint as a [global admin or SharePoint admin](./sharepoint-admin-role.md) in Microsoft 365. To learn how, see [Getting started with SharePoint Online Management Shell](/powershell/sharepoint/sharepoint-online/connect-sharepoint-online).
+
+3. Run the following command to specify the new domain name:
+
+ ```PowerShell
+ Start-SPOTenantRename -DomainName <DomainName> -ScheduleDateTime <YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ> [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]
+ ```
+
+ Where "ScheduleDateTime" is at least 24 hours in the future, but not more than 30 days.
+
+You can get the status of the rename by running `Get-SPOTenantRenameStatus`.
+
+## Step 3: Review features and settings after the rename
+
+1. Review any firewall rules that might block access to the new domain.
+
+2. Review organization browser settings to make sure the new domain is a trusted location. This includes reviewing any Group Policy settings that might control browser settings.
+
+3. Review any third-party apps, custom apps, and scripts that access SharePoint. They might need to be modified to use the new domain.
