After you have created you public Office 365 SharePoint website, you want to customize it but surprise. If you click site actions there are only few options available (I wonder if this is an error or by design).
The goal: Transformation of this Standard Office 365 SharePoint Website into a Full Working SharePoint Publishing Site. By the way I’m using Office 365 E3 Plan which has the Publishing Infrastructure Feature.
So let’s start. First step: Activation of the Publishing Infrastructure at the Site Collection Level. Even if there is no Site Settings option in the menu you can still access this area by type the URL directly:
You will be redirected to the Site Settings page. From here please open Site collection features (below Site Collection Administration Section) and activate the Publishing Infrastructure Feature.
