MC428505 – Updated September 27, 2022: Microsoft has updated the content below to show as intended. Thank you for your patience.

The SharePoint app bar is designed to improve the global wayfinding experience while dynamically displaying personalized content. The app bar makes important content and resources more accessible no matter where you are in SharePoint.

While the app bar plays an integral role in the overall modern SharePoint experience, Microsoft acknowledges that for some customers there is a continued desire to disable the app bar. Microsoft previously shared that the SharePoint app bar can be temporarily disabled until September 30th, 2022 (MC343248 March ’22). Today Microsoft is announcing that it’s extending the window for the app bar to be temporarily disabled until March 31, 2023.

When this will happen:

March 31, 2023

How this affects your organization:

After this date, your app bar can remain disabled for a period up to one year. Once this timeframe has elapsed, unless you have chosen to enable it sooner, the app bar will become available within your tenant.

What you can do to prepare:

While the app bar plays an integral role in the overall modern SharePoint experience, Microsoft acknowledges that for some customers there is a continued desire to disable the app bar.
