What is EasyPass?

When editing a SharePoint page in Live Mode, you will see colorful labels all over the page. These labels indicate the name of the Design Elements on your page. As you hover over and select these labels, you will activate EasyPass, which is a feature that allows you to easily identify, select, and modify Design Elements. 


EasyPass Active Mode

Selecting a specific Design Element will take you to EasyPass Active Mode, which allows you to select a specific Design Element on the page and work on it without the distraction of other EasyPass labels.

  • Entering Active Mode

To enter Active Mode, simply select an EasyPass label.  The selected Design Element will be highlighted, so you can clearly see what you are working on.
