Add a way to change favicon on modern team sites
There doesn't seem to be a way to change the favicon on a site. This is helpful to make shortcuts looks nice and relevant to the site, as well as being able to easily locate the site tab when many tabs are open
I slightly modified the SPFx extension, so you're able to just drop a file into SP's Site Assets library that's called "favicon.ico".
You may download my version from here: http://4us2use.at/?p=303
I agree there should be a way to configure this as part of the site settings.
As a workaround I've found a sample SPFx Extension that changes the favicon. Here's their code https://github.com/joaoferreira/SPFx-favicon, and here's the code author's blog post detailing the SPFx Extension they created: https://sharepoint.handsontek.net/2018/08/24/change-favicon-on-modern-sharepoint-sites/
It's not perfect, there is a bit of a delay for the icon to change while the page code loads, but will be adequate until there is a built-in way to change this.
As there is still no solution from MS - I just found this easy solution (ok it’s not for free, but cheap) which works for both Modern and Classic Sites – Favicon for SharePoint Modern Sites: https://www.tecconsult.at/products/sharepoint-favicon-for-modern-sites
Agree. This could be added to the site logo section or available in the site settings.
Definitely something that I am surprised isnt available as a setting in SharePoint Admin
