Customizing the Sharepoint home page showing frequent sites and suggested sites
Customizing the Sharepoint home page showing frequent sites and suggested sites, since there are confidential sites that should not be displayed to users of the system
EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT NEEDED: Organization of tiles on "Site Home"
Ability to at least alphabetize the list of sites (that look like tiles) would cut down on the time spent trying to find sites if you have many! Also, the tiles under "Following" move around so you can't even have a muscle memory to an approx. location.
PLEASE fix this or return to the old way which was just an alphabetical list. SUCH a waste of time hunting around. Using search feature is just cumbersome and another time waster, especially if you guess/spell the name wrong.
Thank you kindly.
Was there an update that broke Frequent Sites? I had an actual useable front page once and now I have to keep hunting for the sites I work in while two-year-old project sites get prioritised. Is there a way to roll back this "feature"?
The SharePoint Start (Welcome) Page has never been brilliant, but over the last couple of months it is only showing sites that are rarely visited in the "Frequent" section and all the "Followed" sites are missed off completely, with some coming up as "Suggested sites". It doesn't matter how many times you visit a site, or whether you "follow" it, it refuses to show up in either "Followed" or "Frequent.....how on earth can we fix this?

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE....
...fix this stupid issues with SharePoint so we can arrange our SharePoint homepage how we like it. My most frequent site, which I administrate, has been moved down to "Suggested Sites". How stupid is that?

The SharePoint frequent sites page is an unmitigated nightmare!! There are "frequent" sites showing that have actually been deleted weeks prior, yet ones that I use all day every day take an age to display! There needs to be a way or organising this and being able to Edit

Any updates on this "feature" being resolved? Not being able to modify this site, or change where the app launcher takes you to begin with, is a huge issue.
Frequent sites should be frequent to my specific user, not based on the rest of the users with access to the parent sharepoint site.

How is this still not fixed?!
David Richards commented
all the below comments and i see no answer on how to remove a deleted site from the home page favorites or frequent site?!? Has anyone figured this out?
Please add this feature. Deleting a site and still seeing it odd, non-intuitive and a broken feature.
Need this please!

It sounds like the "frequent" sites are not actually showing sites the logged in users is accessing frequently? Is that true?
Was thinking of promoting SPHome as a portal page for O365 . if it showed "frequently accessed" sites that would be a positive. If it shows the first sites that were accessed by the logged in user.. but not those "frequented" by the logged in user then this web part shouldn't be called "Frequent sites"

Please make frequent sites an optional feature that can be turned off by admins.
It is showing sites I need to give users access to but do not actually want them to visit.
Very frustrating having to try and find a workaround!
Most needed or at least give the ability to use a sharepoint root custom page as replacement for the sharepoint home.
Now with the site webpart and the other webparts that exist, it would make more sense!
I have a test site that has been deleted and now remains showing. How do I kill it?
Why can't we turn this entire feature off?

I am working on a test site then at the end need to remove it, but this setting keep the test site for me even the test site already get deleted. Cause a lot of issues.
Fred Rippeto commented
Please allow users to control (add, remove, reorder) "Frequent Sites" portion of SharePoint.
I have to wonder if the low number of votes is due to folks not knowing this suggestion exists. Searching the web shows lots of folks who agree (of those who even bother to say anything) but the votes here would suggest it is not a priority.
Is Microsoft commenting on this elsewhere?
Current implementation is about as idiotic as it comes. "Frequent sites" should mean just that, not the most recent site I happened to access once and don't need again being the first thing I see forever after. The most frequent site I use is now below the fold because I was searching for one thing and opened six other sites to find it.
