Reference ID: MC293206 | Effective: March 31, 2022

MC293206 – The SharePoint app bar is designed to improve the global wayfinding experience while dynamically displaying personalized content. The app bar makes important content and resources more accessible no matter where you are in SharePoint.

Microsoft had previously shared in MC240066 (February ’21) that the SharePoint app bar could be temporarily disabled until October 31st, 2021. Today Microsoft is announcing that they are extending the window for the app bar to be temporarily disabled until March 31, 2022.

While the app bar plays an integral role in the overall modern SharePoint experience, Microsoft acknowledges that for some customers there is a continued desire to disable the app bar.
