"Followed Sites" funktion should work for restored Site Collections with same Site IDs
With SharePoint 2013 on premise it is possible restore site collections out of a site collection backup (restore-SPSite). For those Site Collections the “Follow” Feature works perfect within the browser although all Site Collections have the same unique Site Collection ID.
Please change the “Followed Sites” Feature in the iOS app so it will work like within the browser.
At the moment we can’t use the iOS App because of our backup/restore rollout approach for new Site Collections. The app shows only one entry although I’m following several Site Colelctions.
My assumption is that within the App the Site Collection ID is used to identify the Site.
For the widely used approach of backup a Site template and restore it under a new URL, this won’t work.
