How to Add a Virto Modern Web Part to your SharePoint Site

This article describes how you can add any Virto modern web part to your SharePoint site. Follow the steps we offer and enjoy the SharePoint modern experience with Virto Modern web parts.

SharePoint Classic and Modern Experience

Microsoft SharePoint allows its users all over the world to choose between two basic UI interfaces:  the classic experience and the modern experience. First of all, lets us see the difference and why you would probably prefer one of them.

Classic SharePoint Experience

Classic experience is the SharePoint interface that is familiar to most users. It requires more steps of configuration than a modern experience but stays highly customizable for its users.

Though Microsoft focuses on supporting Modern experience, the classic experience may be the option for many cases. For example, there is a group of classic features that are not available in the modern view. Such as several column types and some customization preferences.

A major reason to migrate from the classic experience is limited mobile support and less usability.

Modern SharePoint Experience

Modern experience is ready to use,  intuitive interface with fully supported SharePoint functionality. It is available in SharePoint in Microsoft 365 and in SharePoint 2019 server (some modern experiences). Modern pages are also available for use on mobile devices without any special modifications.

Please, find in this article the full list of differences between the new and classic experiences for lists and libraries.
