Improvements are Coming to SharePoint

Mar 14, 2019

On April 1, Microsoft SharePoint is going to begin defaulting lists and libraries to the "modern" view.   After April 1, lists and libraries that are in classic mode as a result default settings will automatically be shifted to the modern view 

List in ‘Classic’ View:  Classic 

List in ‘Modern’ View:   Modern 

Lists and libraries may still use classic mode using the granular opt-out switches that we provide at the site collection, site, list, and library levels. Additionally, lists that use certain features and customizations that are not supported by modern will still be automatically switched to classic mode. 

Below are links to the official notification for this action as well as some MS training documents regarding the differences between the Classic and Modern List views:
