please help me with setting up a home page for sharepoint. I would like to set up for all sharepoint users in my organization a common Home Page containing our main intranet site. Simply put, I would like everyone logging into sharepoint to have the first view of the page with our main site. Is this possible?

Hi, I got the same issue. I also hope for an answer. I've set a homepage in the sharepoint admin center, but the home symbol still leads to the personal homepage of individual users instead of the communication site.

@MS_Friends yeah... :)
I found an interesting article in the meantime on the subject: https://sharepointmaven.com/what-is-a-sharepoint-start-page-and-why-we-need-one/
I am considering whether to put the intranet site on a separate domain. I'm looking into different options.

So conclusion is
A frequent request by many users is whether or not they can alter the URL to where the SharePoint link from Office 365 App Launcher is pointing to – and that is not possible. The Start Page is there for a reason.
but the stupid users (sorry for that) I got will never be able to find the communication site I've setup and therefore will ask me all the time: Where do I find that and that.....
