How to add a Featured link to your Organization’s SharePoint Start page

If you have created a SharePoint site for your team and you want to ensure new users to the domain have easy access to the site, you can add your SharePoint site as a Featured Link on the SharePoint Start page.

Note: You will need to be a Global or SharePoint admin to perform the steps below.

Once you have created the site you would like to be featured, you want to be sure to copy the url as you will need that to create the link. To do this navigate to the address bar (similar to the one shown below), Right click and select copy.

Then log into portal.office.com as an admin (Global or SharePoint) and select the SharePoint icon. This will bring you to the SharePoint start page.

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen where you will see the “Featured Links” section and select “Edit”, then “Add”.

When the New Link box appears, enter the name of the site in the “Text to Display” section and paste the url of the site (from step 1) in the Address section, then select “Save”.

Select “Done” on the Featured sites section, and you have now added a featured site to your domain.
