Design Manager In SharePoint 2013 & Office 365 – Part Six

Welcome to an article on an important new functionality on our SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 site which is none other than “Design Manager”.

Branding is everything now among all organizations. A site should have it all to attract its users. Earlier, SharePoint Designer was an extra tool to do so but now we have Design Manager right at your site collection.


You have to enable your publishing feature on your site collection and you will have a list of features available on your site settings of the site collection.

  • Welcome

  • Manage Device Channels

  • Upload Design Files

  • Edit Master Pages

  • Edit Display Templates

  • Edit Page Layouts

  • Publish and Apply Design

  • Create Design Package

All the above have awesome functionalities which will help you to do a lot of things with your master pages, page layouts, html and css files all in here.

In this article we will start off with the sixth configuration “Edit Page Layouts”.


Edit Page Layouts:


Here under Edit Page Layouts, we will be able to create page layouts with your desired look and feel you want through your desired master page.


Let’s see how we can do it.


  • Click on ‘Create a Page Layout’.

  • Here you can fill in the configuration.
