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
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.
Priorities appear to be a bit off! Microsoft has added functionality for mixed reality and AI into Sharepoint but still can't make basic customizations to the SharePoint company home page and the ability to remove auto-generated broken links to sites that no longer exist. The cart seems to be pretty far ahead of the horse and no one seems to care. This stems from a blind focus on features and not understanding the core purpose of your product.
Please allow us to modify the list of frequent sites removing only certain sites off the list.
We had a new trainee that opened a site we don't use, now we all have to see that incorrect site each day which other new trainee's think is a correct site for them...
Another great addition would be to add sites to a favorites list
Do the Sharepoint Team have any plans regarding this issue? Can we get some response?
i can't believe this is not working , it is a basic issue
Come on microsoft. I made a spelling mistake on a site. Fixed it the next day, but because i had clicked and gone to the site there it now remains forever and can not be removed . What a joke!

Admins can't edit Sharepoint landing page? Who thought that was a good idea. I would consider that an MVP feature.

Also this is so stupid to see displayed the deleted sites without any possibility to delete the links. This Feature is to much intrusive.
This is critically important, especially for new users who are easily confused

I want to PIN the key sites I have to use all the time. Failing that, I want to remove sites that I have visited ONCE but which still clog the top row of my key sites.
Frequent seems to be "original time first viewed" - not actually "most recently viewed" - I could forego the editing feature if the frequency feature was implemented correctly in the first place.
Not being able to remove/delete groups from my sharepoint that have been completely deleted is frustrating.
Please add this feature asap.
Sharepoint is not the easiest app to use. May stop using it altogether.
This "bug" is 100% unacceptable and makes SharePoint's interface essentially feel like beta software. Even with a brand new SharePoint environment if one creates any sites that are in-turn deleted, those sites/links are permanently stuck showing up in Frequent sites. Please tell me why Microsoft feels like they should force invalid links taking up half the page that create mass confusion.
We setup and we deliver. we need to have ability to control frequent sites and frequent sites. what would you do if it was your site? huh.
The lack a preferences / editing function on the Sharepoint home page is just another instance of MS thinking they know whats best for us - regardless of what we want.
I deleted a number of group folders and now am living with a home page full of Recent History that doesn't connect to anything and just clutters the page degrading the user experience.
And I'm told that I have to wait for some unknown period of time for the folders to be replaced???
Come on guys... your coding is OK but not great and the lack of functionality and customization is legendary.
Please add the feature for those who want it.

Can you just allow admins to manage the SharePoint landing page so that we can (if we wish) make it the company SharePoint Online landing page ... which may seem bizarre to you, but what's bizarre to me is that every user gets a different experience and presentation when they hit the SharePoint landing page. Except for the features links list, the one and only thing I can control.
I have a link that is broken and taking you to it's parent site and there is not a way to fix or remove it!
"Frequent..." is of limited use to our users. We need a 'pin-able' view--something they can control.
"Suggested Sites"? It's not social media. It's a professional storage/sharing environment our users are trained to use for their jobs. If your suggestions are useful to our people, our training FAILED.
