How can we improve the tenant admin features O365?

Allow the admin to pin custom tiles to the app launcher for all users in the tenant

With the newly released update it is now easy for an admin to add a custom tile to the My Apps page. However, as an admin you still can't add this custom tile to the app launcher for any user except yourself.

For several companies it would be nice if you gave the admin the ability to add tiles directly to the app launcher for all users. For example when you want to link to the time management tool, public website etc.

    4 year old suggestion. 2 year old "We're working on it" MS comment. Still nothing! Does MS ignore functionality over aesthetic updates (like dark mode and emojis). Hey MS, listen to your customers and do something.

    I am unable to find this under the roadmap using the name "Admin App Launcher Customization Tools". I was wondering if there are additional features planned to allow the admin to create groups or sections of app tiles for organization.

    This feature is requested on Jun 24, 2015. It's nearly almost four years. How can there be no action from Microsoft. This feature is need of the hour.

    Like many others suggested, an update on this would be nice by MS or explanation why this may have been cancelled

    Is there any update on this? The manual process of having each user pin a custom app is absurd

  • Hugh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's been a year and a half since working on it - any updates?

    4000+ votes and now it's off the roadmap? C'mon microsoft... help us help you by actually communicating with us. The other half of this idea is managing tile visibility by group membership which I think is critical to delivering a complete solution:

    Microsoft, could we get an official response whether or not this will be seen on the road map under a new name or as part of new app launcher?

    Note: Feature ID 14792 - Admin App Launcher Customization Tools has been cancelled. This feature would have implemented customization options for admins, including the ability to select and create custom tiles that appear in the user's 'HOME' view.

    I am a big fan of user voice but this seems to have really fallen through the cracks. Please update status to be accurate or update roadmap to include this if its really being worked on!

  • Ryan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please remove your "WORKING ON IT" as Microsoft is clearly not working on it and nothing is in the road map!

    Hello Barabara
    Can you tell us something about the roadmap entry "Admin App Launcher Customization Tools”?

  • James commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Also looking for an admin update here as it appears this was removed from the roadmap.

  • SDADM commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As a corollary, allow Admins to REMOVE tiles from the App-launcher for all tenant users.

    We did not have oneDrive enabled initially, as IT wanted to test it and develop policies on bit's use before rolling it out. Granting a SharePoint Online license automatically made the oneDrive tile appear. If we could have removed/concealed it until we were ready, that would probably have helped limit the number of frustrated users calling our help desk.

    We could really use this functionality. Please stop working on stuff that changes the Outlook experience or adds useless functionality like some Delve junk and get working on this one please.
