What is the difference between SharePoint home sites and hubs?


banner-smallThis episode of the Microsoft 365 Voice is all about SharePoint home sites and hubs. Key topics discussed include:

  • What are home sites and hubs? And how do they differ?
  • How many home sites and hubs can you have in your Microsoft 365 tenant?
  • How do you get started with home sites and hubs?
  • How are home sites and hubs created?
  • Can a hub be a home site?
  • Will hubs be included in SharePoint Server 2019?
  • Tips for using hubs, including “sticky” hub site branding.

Correction: During the episode, we said we weren’t sure whether admins could remove a home site once it was defined in their tenant. A huge thank you to Microsoft for clarifying – you can use the Remove-SPOHomeSite PowerShell command to remove a home site.

Enjoy the episode!

  1. As an ex-Librarian I love talking about Hub-sites and IA as well. We are considering moving to Modern (or at least I woud love to move to Modern) but the IA piece requires a lot of consideration! We are also a large organisation and have struggled with how to make content easily accessible to different offices e.g. I work in Germany and therefore want to see German HR content in the first instance not London HR content. Think Hubsites will help us achieve this.
