Requirement: Disable Create site link from SharePoint Online home page!
The “Create Site” link in SharePoint Online Home (https://Crescent.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx) helps end-users to create their own modern SharePoint sites. We got a requirement to disable this “Create Site” Link as a policy decision.
How to Hide the “Create Site” Link in SharePoint Online Home?
To disable create site link, follow these steps:
- Login to SharePoint Online Admin Center (https://yourtenant-admin.sharepoint.com)
- Click on “Settings” in left navigation
- Under “Site Creation” section, Un-check “Let users create sites from the SharePoint start page and OneDrive”.
- Click on “Save” button to save your changes!
This hides the “Create Site” link in the SharePoint Online home page for everyone, including administrators (Admins can create sites via SharePoint Online Admin center or PowerShell) once you logout and login back!
