MC468489: Retiring 3 entry points to access contents from the SharePoint mobile app

We will be retiring 3 entry points to access contents from the SharePoint mobile app; instead, we recommend the utilization of the search bar, save for later, and other avenues in the SharePoint mobile app to access any content. These spaces were just shortcuts to access contents, but the users can still access them in SharePoint just not at these spaces after the retirement.

What you need to do to prepare

Instead of using the retired entry points, we recommend using the save for later option to access the content easily from the saved tab in the SharePoint app.
