“Updated March 18, 2020: At this time, based on usage, we are stopping the roll out of the updated SharePoint start page experience. After April 1, all users who may have received the updated experience will revert back to the current experience as shown below and documented here: Discover content with SharePoint start page. Future updates to this feature will be announced in the Microsoft 365 roadmap and Message center.
Note: Any Targeted Release customer who has set up a home site will no longer see the shared branding, navigation and footer experience between the home site and SharePoint start page. Other home site functionality will continue to work. See this for details: Set up a home site for your organization.. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Updated December 3, 2019: We have completed the roll out to our Targeted Release customers and to ensure an optimal experience we are extending the completion to remaining customers until February 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We’re updating the SharePoint start page experience
- We’ll be gradually rolling this out to selected Targeted Release customers in early October 2019.
- We’ll be gradually rolling this out to all customers on November 1, 2019.
- The roll out will be completed by the end of February 2020 (previously November 2019).
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 54821.How does this affect me?
The SharePoint start page, previously known as SharePoint home, has a new look and feel. This is the personalized SharePoint page that users see when clicking on SharePoint in Office.com or the Office 365 app launcher.
We are also adding new experiences to the start page to help users discover and get back to their content easily.
