When we had the app tiles in the navigation of the Office 365 app launcher, I could drag and drop them in the order I wanted. With the new look, I can't figure out how to reorder the apps. Do we still have this capability, and if so, how do I rearrange the apps?

Thank you

Basically you can't. The new App Launcher is designed to show the Apps every user most uses so the order is influenced by the use of the Apps each user does

That's unfortunate. It explains why the news article, touting the new interface, didn't mention it. Thank you very much for the reply.



 

I don't think that is how it is working either.  I have apps showing that I never use.  They are showing higher than apps I do use.

I can't find a way to reorder my apps on either the Launcher or the splash page (good morning page). If they took away this ability, how can I get it back? 

I'm new to this forum. Do the Microsoft people read it? If not, where do I go to put in an "enhancement request" - in this case a "give us back what you took away request"?
