Provide ability for user to clear frequent sites and activity on their SharePoint page
Provide ability for user to clear frequent sites and activity on their SharePoint page.
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.

Please fix this!! Very confusing for users!
jade henrickson commented
yes please update this!
We just reorganized our SharePoint sites, and deleted few of them (it is so easy to create new sites with the Groups functionality !)
But these deleted sites are remaining on the frequent sites page. It is very confusing for the users, and this suggestion should be really considered as an important bug fix !
That must be fixed ASAP!!!! ONE MORE TIME THE END USERS MUST WORK FOR MSFT AS QA!!!!!!!! This is how MSFT IS GETTING FREE LABOR!!! START PAYING FOR QA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me too. I have a site that was deleted in 2014 still in my list!
Adding my frustration to the very growing list. FIX IT PLEASE!!

This is more of a bug fix then an improvement.

just discovered this site when I was searching a solution for the same problem.
Worked with Microsoft office 365 support on this for 30 minutes today and all they could do was direct me to this webpage and advise they were sorry I was having this problem. The problem is that is the same as you all have reported...I deleted sharepoint sites long ago but they still show on the home view as a favorite.
Spend over 1hr trying to figure out why they were still showing up until I found this!!!
Staggering. It seems that we are the QA testers now.
This is a feature that needs resolving quickly. We cannot have lots of deleted sites clogging up our SharePoint / OneDrive.
If you listened to the users and admins I have a very hard time believing that there is a valid use case for dead links to continue to show up on your frequent site lists. This isn't social media, give the admin the ability to define this page and clear out old junk automatically!
Can't believe this still hasn't been fixed! I also, like many others below, am waiting to roll SharePoint sites out to staff but cannot with this issue. I cannot approach people to use this site and expect them to keep it tidy when there is lots of dead links in the 'Home Page', which no doubt will also cause a lot of confusion. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED! This issue has been around for years and still nothing from MS about it and MS Support cant do anything either, sort it out MS.
I have seriously considering creating a new tenant for a company of 5 users in order to clear out all the "Recent" and "Frequently Visited" references to test/temp/dev resources which now return 404 errors. Migrating the 100GB+ of emails and need to perform it after-hours is the sole reason why we have not done this yet; in the meantime we are doing our best to link to a "classic experience" root portal where navigation is currently statically configured for various collections.

Just starting to work in a new company and looking to implement SharePoint 2016, but these type of issues are getting most of my enthusiasm away. Should I look elsewhere?
