In the case of a very long page, what is the best approach to help people jumping to the right section? in the past we had anchored hyperlinks.

This feature has now been released. You can hover over a heading to copy the anchor link (format: [page url].#heanding-name)


  • Note: you create the anchor by using any of the Heading styles (H1, H2, etc.) in a Text web part, then hover over the link icon to get the URL.

    Unfortunately there is no easy one file download. You have to build this web part on your own. This web part is part of the SharePoint Framework Client-Side Web Part Samples, so you can use the following page to get started: link But this is just the tip of the iceberg, you may follow this link to setup everything you need: link Aug 6, 2018 at 9:43
