This Recommended policy status is showing as Ok but not getting reflected in browser and where as Mandatory policy is getting applied


@Rajprakash To confirm, once the HomepageLocation policy is set as recommended, what are the users trying to change?  Is it the homepage URL or can you provide more detail?



I think I have the same problem. The settings are in "recommended" but I (user) can't update. It seems this is a known bug:

The recommended version of this policy does not currently work and functions exactly like the mandatory version.

Any idea when this will be fixed. This is really annotying problem.
