App Launcher Refresh

Microsoft have recently rolled out a refreshed App Launcher for Office 365.

If you’re unsure what that is, it’s the menu system in the top right that looks like this:

This has a number of small usability benefits which ensure Office 365.

Moving your mouse over a tile and clicking the 3 dots brings up some options:

This let’s you customize your navigation by changing the size of tiles, and how they behave, for example here resized some tiles, and made the people tile wider.

This is useful, however being able to pin tiles to the nav bar will save many clicks and making the Office 365 experience that much better.

Here i’ve pinned SharePoint Online and Admin:

Remember if you unpin a tile you can always click on View all my apps to repin it to the App Launcher.

Finally, you can add your own tiles to the app launcher.

Here is a step by step guide on how to do that:

I hope you find these changes useful. I know I will.
