Updated September 27, 2022: We have 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, we acknowledge that for some customers there is a continued desire to disable the app bar. We previously shared that the SharePoint app bar can be temporarily disabled until September 30th, 2022 (MC343428 March ’22). Today we are announcing that we are 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, we acknowledge that for some customers there is a continued desire to disable the app bar.
