Our company has some sites/systems that only run in IE and while we have prepared our users to switch to Edge and use IE Mode they're are often inconvenienced by the fact that have to add each site to the IE Mode list. It was suggested that we use the Enterprise Site List instead but to my understanding it doesn't actually serve the same purpose?

Ultimately what we want is a means to have list of sites to be automatically open in IE Mode without the expiry period, so that our users don't have to trouble themselves to add the sites to the IE Mode list every time it expires. Can configuring the Enterprise Site List achieve this?

    Hi @TDC ,

    Ultimately what we want is a means to have list of sites to be automatically open in IE Mode without the expiry period, so that our users don't have to trouble themselves to add the sites to the IE Mode list every time it expires. Can configuring the Enterprise Site List achieve this?

    Yes, if you set the IE Mode site list through the browser, it always has a time limit(30 days by default) and needs to be configured again. For enterprise users, it is more suitable to implement the deployment of IE mode site list by configuring relevant group policies, there is no time limit via this solution. For more details about IE mode configuration, please refer to this doc: Configure IE mode policies.

    In this document, the main thing is to configure these two group policies:

    1. Configure Internet Explorer integration
    2. Configure the Enterprise Mode Site List

    Regarding the site list configuration file, you can configure it manually or obtain it through the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager, it's up to you.
