During Microsoft Ignite 2020 we announced the new home site app for Microsoft Teams. The app gives employees a gateway to your organization, starting with the app’s name and icon, which you can customize to reflect the identity of your organization or your intranet. The app’s multi-level navigation lets people find sites across the organization, including portals, teams, communities and applications.

 

This blog gives you a great first look at the app, an on-demand video session packed with demos and a set of common questions and answers below.

 

The home site app for teams brings the power of your SharePoint-based intranet home site seamlessly into Microsoft Teams.The home site app for teams brings the power of your SharePoint-based intranet home site seamlessly into Microsoft Teams.

Bring the power of your SharePoint-based intranet home site directly into Microsoft Teams—seamlessly. The home site app in Teams gives your users global navigation across sites, communities, and teams; quick access to sites they use regularly; and a personalized news feed.

 

We are happy to see the excitement for this in the community and with our customers. Many of you have asked for additional information. As part of Ignite, we produced an on-demand video focused on the new home site app in Teams - showcasing how it work and the value of empowering users to discover, consume and collaborate on content like never before. 

"Living in Teams? Now, so does your intranet!" video by @Tejas Mehta and @Prateek Dudeja:

 

 

Home site app in Teams - frequently asked questions (FAQ)

 

Q: Can any site be pinned as a Home site app in Teams? 

A: Communication sites designated as Home Sites are eligible for pinning in Teams as the Home site app using our default configuration flow. 

 

Q: Where are global navigation links curated? 

A: Links for global navigation are managed through the home site, by home site owners, freeing global admins from having to play the role of curator 

 

Q: Can my classic site be pinned in Teams ? 

A: Only home sites are eligible to be pinned as the home site app in Teams with our default configuration flow.  Home sites must be modern SharePoint communication sites. 

 

Q: What is difference between Home site app and Home page pinned as tab? 

A: The home site app provides organizations to pin company branded entry point to their intranet as a top level app in Teams.  It provides an immersive site consumption experience, complete with navigation, mega-menus and support for tenant wide search.  It also provides quick access to company curated resources, important sites and news similar to those provided by the SharePoint App Bar in the web.  Home pages (or any other SharePoint pages) pinned as tabs in Channels provide ways to bring content directly into Team collaboration scenarios, and these pages have navigation and search elements removed to facilitate focus on the page content itself. 

 

Q: Do I need a Home site app for the Global navigation to show up in Teams? 

A: Yes, the global navigation links are stored in the home site of a tenant, and is required in order for the navigation panel to appear in the home site app in Teams 

 

Q: Can a SharePoint team site be a Home site? 

A: No. Only communication sites can be made a Home site in a tenant. 

 

We are humbled and honored by the reaction to this upcoming feature and appreciate all the engagement with us. Please, keep your feedback and questions coming.

 

Thanks,

Tejas Mehta, principal program manager - Microsoft

Great idea and a nice way of bringing it all together. Only thing, I want it now to our tenant :)

Any estimate on general availability for the Home site Microsoft Teams app?

Good stuff. Looking forward to this. Now we just need session state when navigating away to a chat and back to where we left off ;).

As long as we still can't change the registered company tenant domain of our O365 subscription expansion on the entire platform, including Teams, is completely useless.  I realize a tenant-to-tenant transfer is possible, it's a risky process involving 3rd party utilities like BitTitan.  Data loss almost always results.  Microsoft seems to think companies never change ownership, their name or reincorporate so everyone's forced to use irrelevant domain namespace or start all over, including moving everything on One Drive.  As a result when our new parent company asked if we want to stay on O365 or move to GSuite with them.... As long as we're starting over, GSuite it is!  Way to stick to your technical limitations and/or subscription policies and lose customers Microsoft.  You made our decision to leave easy.

Sounds like a good plan, but even better would be an option for the owner to set the opening tab (not Posts as the current default), so we can choose the platform /content that greets people in each channel.

It is what we need today! Can you pease tell us when it will be available?

When can we expect this to land in tenants?

Looks really promising!

How will this work in the Teams mobile app? For instance, would it be possible to receive a Teams notification if a news is posted on the Home site?

New Contributor

Hi @JohanFiske , Teams notification exists already by using connector in Teams.

Looks like the roadmap says March 2021 for the Home Site app for Teams.

Will this feature also be available in the mobile app? This would offer really big benefits, cause the mobile worker could use the intranet without changing the app. :)

Integration into Teams is a great news

Home site app for Teams: what about multilingual support?

 

1) Can contents that appear on the app panel (global nav item menu, labels like "Recommended news", ...) be translated? If yes, which language they follow (the language I choose in my User profile or in my Teams settings or ...)?

2) My home site has modern mutlilingual feature active. Is the language selector visible inside Teams app? Does it behave consistently as it does in browser?

 

Thank you!

Occasional Visitor

I Installed the home site app.

1.  No Hub menu.
2. The phone app is sort useless as you can navigate back and need to navigate to SharePoint to open a file.
So why bother going to Teams? Look like a nice idea but useless for mobile users. 

Occasional Visitor

Any ideas on the roadmap ID and when we can see this rolled out?
