SharePoint - Add Dynamic Links to MS Teams

Nick 0 Reputation points

Good afternoon,

We are migrating our SharePoint 2013 environment to our SharePoint 365 SaaS tenant. Our SP2013 environment is very simple without any workflows, it is basically just a landing page for links to other sites in our environment. The most used feature in our SP2013 env is the Team Site template, which has been fully replaced by MS Teams.

My question: Is there a way to create a dynamic navigation dropdown menu (or list, or other content web part) that would pull from a list of existing MS Team sites, populate the dropdown, and only show links to the sites that any given user has access to?

    Hi @Nick,

    Thank you for posting in this community.

    There is currently no way to create a dynamic navigation dropdown menu (or list, or other content web part) to show all the sites that any given user has access to. It's simple to know who a site can be accessed by, but it's complicated to know which sites a user can access.

    Perhaps you want each of your users to simply know which sites they can access.

    The first method is through the SharePoint start page. The SharePoint start page ( displays Frequent, Recent, and following sites. This helps the user to quickly navigate to his most recently visited sites, but the downside is that sometimes only some of the sites available to the user are shown here.

    Another way is to use SharePoint Search to get a list of all the sites a user can access.
