Delve is as far as stupid also.
All documents previously located in a deleted O365 group, still remain as 'Recent' files in my Profile !! -:(
Christophe LYONNET commented
A delete site should not be any more visible in Frequent and Recent tiles. Can MS do this?
If such simple request cannot be taken into account, how can we trust later on other devices like Delve", which is expected to be an 'AI' -:(
Her Dr Panda, you might want to recheck Outlook 2016 as you absolutely can drag and drop attachments directly from Outlook.
Dr. Panda commented
Admit it Microsoft, you are just lazy and lame to offer this very simple fix. the sharepoint system is totally crazy and unituitive with endless opening tabs. And you cannot even drag and drop attachments directly from outlook (= a Microsoft product!) without having to save it to desktop first. MICROSOFT = LAZY AND INCOMPETENT
I have a site I deleted 1 year ago. It is still in my frequent sites list. Maybe an explanation on why we cannot clean up recent / frequent would satisfy some.
To not be able to "DELETE" and "REMOVE" folders from frequent list is absurd. MSFT, a TTL of 72-144 hours is sufficient to keep alive a folder. i find many of your support links inaccurate in direction including simple things like adding a signature. If it were not for one other Chief, i would be using Google Apps all day long
Please give users the power to remove links to sites (at times not existent) from the frequent list!
What impression you want to provide to your users by introducing such polling? Does this mean that Microsoft needs to do a referendum to fix a technical glitch or their technical team does not have a capacity to fix this bug??? What a great inconvenience it is for users!! Please enable your users to remove the site completely on their discretion.

This suggestion have over 200+ is it so difficult to code a button to reset the frequent sites?
It is not intuitive what the frequent site box color code are for. It is not intuitive that the sort order is. It is not intuitive what the refresh frequency is, when does a frequent site get added or removed. MS needs to allow removals.

please fix. its not workable for my company.
Please fix this, driving our users crazy and the admins crazy trying to explain that they are deleted, even though they still show up!

I am doing a migration from LN to SharePoint Modern Document Library using my service account. I would like to clear Recent Activity logged with my Service account.
After removing a Team Group from 'Teams', the correspondent SharePoint site didn't remove and I'm not able to remove it at all as it does not exist, but still shows in SharePoint, very confusing for users.
The same happen to OneNote, the notebook corresponding to the Team Group still shows in OneNote and as SharePoint I'm unable to remove it.
Very confusing for anyone.
We need to be able to delete these sites

I have a site that I only had temp access to for a period of time in my list. This was accessed months ago yet the site still lingers. As a result of no longer having access to this site I'm prompted to enter my creds each time I hit my SharePoint page. The fact the ability to remove these sites does not exist after being flagged is astounding.
You know, this issue was a last thing pushing me to not advise MS Office 365 services anymore to my clients. It looks like Ms does not hear its customers at all.

From M~Soft "Thank you for choosing Microsoft O365 Support team.
We recently got your logged ticket requesting assistance with "Remove Frequent Site of the deleted group".
If you were referring to Frequent Sites List, there isn't any advance command to delete them since they are landing pages.
However, it will eventually disappear (approx. after 30days) of zero visits to those pages.
3 consecutive visits to the sites will trigger another 30days before it disappears.
These Pages/Sites visits can be counted if an Admin of the Site visits them.
I understand it should be more convenience to be able to delete the frequent site in Sharepoint Online . I suggest you vote on the feedback via the link below to push our related team work on this."
I find this lame in the extreme - as a one man band this is mildly inconvenient, but for companies who might have a lot of dev work, or delete groups etc after projects, what this means is that you can't access the frequent sites page until after 30 days - a really stupid situation Microsoft that you need to throw some money at and give us control over what we see/don't see. Confusing for admins, even more confusing for users - I'm going to test out the theory above by not accessing freqent sites to see if this is removed after 40 days. I won't hold my breath.
Agreed -- we need to have the ability to delete old sites from appearing in the "Frequent sites" Thank you.
I am going to be mobbed by my co-workers if this problem isn't solved. I have sites showing that have already been deleted, so I don't get why the icon still shows.
