It is possible to change the name of my Sub site Navigation? At the moment I have two links, One is called Issue Log which takes me to my homepage and the another also called Issue Log which takes me to a custom list. I would like to rename the Homepage Link to be Issue Management

  • Click the gear icon which is present in your SharePoint site > Then click on site settings > Once you are in site settings page, click on the navigation present under Look and feel. Once you are in the navigation page, under "Structural Navigation: Editing and Sorting" go to current navigation and select the link which you would like rename and click on edit then change it.

You can alter the navigation items from the site settings page:


You can access this section from the Settings cog too:

On the site settings page you should have a Look and Feel section. Check for a Navigation option in this section: enter image description here

If you don't see this option, you may first need to enable the site publishing feature. To do so, click on site features: enter image description here

Scroll down and locate the publishing feature, and then enable it: enter image description here

Go back to site settings and click on Navigation. On the navigation page you will see the section that corresponds to your left hand side navigation on the site: enter image description here

Use the controls to add, remove and edit links. You may need to create a new link called "Issue Management" and have it point to your list.
