Hi everyone! Thank you for the feedback around wanting to move to the “modern” team site experiences, and needing support for structured/managed navigation. We’re pleased to announce that we have addressed this issue and will be rolling out the fix to the worldwide production environment in the coming days. Thank you for your patience – and to the community for helping us identify some issues during the initial First Release preview!
With this update if you have enabled publishing on a classic team site, your structured or managed navigation will now render correctly in the modern experience (both global and current navigation), including any scoped or audience-targeted links. We haven’t pulled all the classic settings into the modern panels yet, so when you need to edit the navigation elements, the edit link will direct you to the classic settings page.
Navigation settings on a classic team site:
Now render correctly on a modern page:
Additionally, subsites will correctly inherit from the parent web when structural navigation is used.
We hope this unblocks you as you move to the modern user experience (UX). Try it out, and let us know if you have any questions. Thanks, Sean!

Hi @Sean Squires, Is there a way can remove the left navigation in the modern experience?

Hi @Beilul Brhane - not completely at this time (though I've heard of folks manipulating the page client-side after load). You can disable the quick launch in navigation elements setting (_layouts/15/navoptions.aspx) - but we still render the recycle bin outside of this setting so it will still display. We are looking to modify this, but no ETA at this time.

Just wondering if you got any replies or fixes for this issue. I'm having the same problem in my site collection and enabling publishing isn't fixing it.

Sorry should have specified, my previous message is only in relation to the modern experience pages and sites made with the new Team/Communication/Hub template that don't support SharePoint Server Publishing features and thus no managed navigation.
In these new sites, you only have access to "Edit Links" and it does not allow you to leave an item without a link. Inputting something like "#" just causes it to default to the root site collection.
A way to add a "Header" item through the modern experience "Edit Links" needs to be added.

Yes @Peter-Ross Cuthbert. This is wanting.
The problem of classic navigation headers in modern was fixed when I raised this. Ref: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/UPDATE-Support-for-Structured-Managed-Navigation-e...
However, the modern experience just doesn't allow headers at all.

When we are using Modern page, Global navigation still does not show the Root site.
Fix for this is rolled out??
If yes, what are the settings that needs to be selected to get it working.

Please support global navigation on Modern Sites (not just modern experiences). Lack of global navigation option on Communication Sites and other modern site templates is just bad form.
We don't care if it uses a new interface or if it uses the Term Store, just get it done. MS should just buy out one of the 3rd party tools like it usually does if it can't hire proficient developers.

This doesn't render in the SharePoint App. It works in the browser on my mobile device, but not in the SharePoint App in my mobile device.
Will this be fixed, as what is designed to be a navigational hierarchy just comes across as a long list when using the App.

Hi Robyn... could you send me more details? Screenshots of what you are seeing vs. what you see on the web would be great. I'll message you my email.
