Microsoft has just released new feature for SharePoint Online for tagging the organisational news and lifting the organisational news to SharePoint Home page.
All you need to do is run a PowerShell Command Set-SPOOrrgNewsSite to set your site to behaving as the organizational authoritative news site.
First you have to connect to your tenant using SharePoint Admin credentials, then run command Set-SPOOrgNewsSite -OrgNewsSiteUrl https://yourtenant.sharepoint.com/sites/IntranetHub.
If you like to check sites that have been configured to organizational new sites, you can use command Get-SPOOrgNewsSite for listing those sites.
#Connect to your tenant using SharePoint Admin credentials Connect-SPOService -Url https://yourtenant-admin.sharepoint.com # Set your site to organizational authoritative news site Set-SPOOrgNewsSite -OrgNewsSiteUrl https://yourtenant.sharepoint.com/sites/IntranetHub #List your organizational authoritative news sites from the tenant Get-SPOOrgNewsSite
After few minutes you will see color block (badge) on the title as a visual cue in the news. See pictures below where Intranet Hub (name on of the site) is color blocked above the news article title.
Organization news is a good new feature in SharePoint Online to highlight the news that are important to your organisation.
