Until the End of march Microsoft is rolling out the new Viva Connections Landing experience. The SharePoint Homesite gets replaced by the Viva Connections home experience:
To navigate to the SharePoint homesite you have to click on the link at the top right corner:
If you want to keep the SharePoint home site as the Viva Connections landing experience there is a SharePoint Online PowerShell command to controll the behavior:
Connect-SPOService -Url <admincenter>.sharepoint.com
Set-SPOHomeSite -HomeSiteUrl https://<homesite>.sharepoint.com -VivaConnectionsDefaultStart $true
Beside the SharePoint Online PowerShell module, SharePoint Admin privileges are required to run this command.
To change the home experience to the new Viva Connections home experience run the following command:
Set-SPOHomeSite -HomeSiteUrl https://<homesite>.sharepoint.com -VivaConnectionsDefaultStart $false
In my experience it takes up to 10 minutes until the updated setting is reflected in Teams.
The current configuration can be checked by the following command:
Get-SPOHomeSite | fl
HomeSiteUrl : https://<homesite>.sharepoint.com
VivaConnectionsDefaultStart : True
