I have enabled a Home Site, but the global navigation does not show up. Does anyone know how to get it working? After a Home Site was setup, I was expecting this navigation piece to be visible somewhere, but it's nowhere to be seen.

Steps performed

  • Enable Home site
  • Waited for 1 hour

PowerShell script used

connect-SPOService -url https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com
set-spohomesite -HomeSiteUrl https://contoso.sharepoint.com 

Home site

  • Is the site a Hub site or connected to another Hub site? – Callum Crowley Jan 3 at 12:34
  • Hi Callum. No. This site is a hub site – Denis Molodtsov Jan 4 at 2:26
  • I am also experiencing this problem. I expected to have the global navigation option available in the settings cog, having seen it in a Microsoft demonstration video. – LucyVery Jan 5 at 12:35
  • Judning by the official documentation, the demo from Ignite 2020 some features that were never implemented. Official documentation does not mention anything about global navigation. – Denis Molodtsov Jan 6 at 1:17
  • I am facing the same issue over weeks now. Could you find out anything about a solution for this problem? Have you contacted MS support about it? – PhilFancy Mar 25 at 7:20

As far as I know, capabilities of home site include:

  1. Easily accessible from the SharePoint mobile app for Android and iOS
  2. Search for the site is scoped to all sites within the organization
  3. Automatically set up as an organization news site

Per my test there is also no "Global navigation settings" in my tenant(using targeted release), strangely I can't find any articles referred to this.

There may be some customization or new features that targeted release can not access, we suggest you raise a ticket from Microsoft.
