I am not sure this is possible. Is there a way to make the SharePoint that appears in the upper-left hand corner to be linkable? I want users to be able to click on "SharePoint" and take them to a site collection home page. Is this possible? If so how can this be done?

    I am not sure if there's a way to do it out of the box, you would need to add a script to all pages (custom action) to switch it to a hyperlink. Commented Dec 22, 2016 at 16:28

    You should be able to as you can change the text. The div for it should be ms-core-brandingText Commented Dec 22, 2016 at 16:29
  • @FlatBanana wouldn't ms-core-brandingText just change the text and not allowing to add a hyperlink to the page? Commented Dec 23, 2016 at 0:54
  • .ms-core-brandingText{href:www.google.com}</style> Do you think this could work? Commented Dec 23, 2016 at 2:17
  • unfortunately, this does not work, there is no property called href in CSS , so you should use JS as I have mentioned in my answer that tried on my side and working properly, hope it help :) Commented Dec 23, 2016 at 2:46

I wrote the following code in a script editor that working properly.

function doredirect() {
//var x = document.getElementById("suiteBarLeft");
var x = document.getElementsByClassName("ms-core-brandingText");
x[0].onclick = doaction;

function doaction()

To apply it to all pages, you can do


No need to Javascript.... You could simply edit your masterpage (it's what I did wiht mine). Search for :

<div class="ms-core-brandingText">SharePoint</div>

And change to:

<a href="/" title="Go to Homepage" class="ms-core-brandingText">Name of your website</a>

You don't need JavaScript or Master Page customisation to change the behaviour fo this SharePoint Branding text. It's a property of the web application and can be set web application wide.

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://tozit-sp:2015 $webApp.SuiteBarBrandingElementHtml = "Awesome Text Goes Here" $webApp.Update()

You will finde more detailed information at the source.


In pure javascript, try below code:

<script type="text/javascript">
    window.location.href = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl; //change url as per your requirement

If you are using jQuery, you can try below code:

<script type="text/javascript">
    window.location.href = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl; //change url as per your requirement
    return false;

You can add the code in masterpage just above the </body> tag if you want it across the site collection. If you want it on specific pages, add in the respective page layouts or add script editor webpart on the page.
