Today on a SharePoint Branding webinar (thanks everyone who could attend, btw), among other things we talked about customizations to SharePoint Online component such as Suite Bar and how unreliable this can be. Well, perfect timing, to prove this point, I’ve noticed subtle Suite Bar change in Excel Online (part of SPO).
Before the suite bar looked pretty useless and thick for Excel Online and other web apps; now it looks like you can change the mame of the file right the suite bar just by clicking on it; you can also share the file:
Those are pretty handy functions but I bet there is markup change; luckily this change is not the same in regular sites such as team sites etc, so no need to panic. TO prove this, I’ve checked the DOM and here is how it looks in Web Apps:
Which is completely different from team site suite bar:
Moral of the story: stop customizing Suite Bar people :)!
