FIXED – stsadm upgrade command has been replaced by psconfig.exe

Recently I came across the error below when upgrading a SharePoint 2016 farm.   Expected product behavior and simply a case of training SharePoint Administrators to use PSCONFIG.EXE command line instead.  Cheers!

Modern Page – NEW Web Parts

Recently Microsoft added more choices when adding a Web Part to SharePoint Online Modern pages.

We now have the “Divider” and “Spacer” which control page layout with either a horizontal rule (Divider) or white space (Spacer) between other web parts.   Simple but helpful addition.

Also, Modern pages now include a “Promote” button that provides a right task pane with options to Add to Navigation, Post as News, or Email to inform a wider audience and build traffic.  Cheers!

NOTE – PDF format updated to include both SharePoint 2013 and 2016 notes.
