Section templates can be added to any SharePoint page to easily give your page a more polished look. Make page design simpler by choosing from a variety of templates that display content beautifully without any guesswork. Section templates include preset content with formatted aspect ratios that can be edited and customized if needed.

Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.
