Greetings,

 

I'm looking for a way to either disable or redirect the SharePoint start page to our organizations actual Portal homepage.  We are coming from 2013 and our user are use to going directly to our home page.  Although we can still send out a direct link, clicking on SharePoint and going to the "Start Page', instead of our actual homepage, has the potential to cause a lot of confusion and fustration.

Unfortunately there is no way to customize the SPO landing page, so you are not going to be able to make such redirection. Fortunately for you there is a way to hide the SharePoint settings that relies on the classic admin center so it can be hard to find: https://docs.microsoft.com/nl-nl/sharepoint/hide-app-tiles-on-app-launcher
Thanks, I hid the Tile form my organizations 365 development. Eventually in the future I may create a custom Title to go the location I want the end users to go to.
