Retiring 3 entry points to access contents from the SharePoint mobile app

SharePoint Online, SharePoint Development Services

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC468489 · Published Nov 18, 2022

Message Summary

We will be retiring 3 entry points to access contents from the SharePoint mobile app; instead, we recommend the utilization of the search bar, save for later, and other avenues in the SharePoint mobile app to access any content. These spaces were just shortcuts to access contents, but the users can still access them in SharePoint just not at these spaces after the retirement.

When this will happen:

December 7, 2022

How this will affect your organization:

Users will no longer be able to use the following entry points to access the SharePoint content when this change is implemented:

1. The tab showing popular files from the Level 2 screen for “Find/Files”

Popular files
View image in new tab

2. “Recent Files” section from app-only quick navigation links shown for team sites. Since this feature does not exist on SPO & on OD, we are aligning the same for Mobile and,

Recent files

3. User’s recent activity across SharePoint news, and pages in the “Recent tab”

What you need to do to prepare:

Instead of using the retired entry points, we recommend using the save for later option to access the content easily from the saved tab in the SharePoint app.
