Creating a SharePoint Hub Site


Hub Site functionality is rolling out to “Targeted Release” Office 365 customers now, so it I thought I’d give it a quick test.

Step 1: Check you are on “Targeted Release” in the Office 365 Admin Console > Settings > Organisation Profile.

Step 2: Go to SharePoint Home from the App Launcher and create a new Communication Site. Microsoft recommends using a Modern Communication site.

Step 3: Register the new Communication site as a Hub Site (via PowerShell)

Step 4: Create a new Modern Team or Communications site to test with

Step 5: In the new site, choose ‘Site Information’ from the settings cog (top right) and select the Hub Site created in step 2 and 3.

To test the functionality I created a news article in the site I created in step 4 and after a few minutes the news article appeared in the Hub Site.

Done!

  1. Reblogged this on Office 365 Journey and commented:
    Register the new Communication site as a Hub Site (via PowerShell)

    Download and install the latest SharePoint Online PowerShell Console (uninstall the old one first if you have it)
    Run the console and connect to your Office 365 Tenant
    Run this PowerShell command:
    Register-SPOHubSite https://tenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/commsiteurl
    Replace tenantname and commsiteurl with those from your site
