Team site back to Outlook

  • Hello,

    Can you please explain if there is an easy way to go back to OUTLOOK after I have completed working on files in TEAM SITE. Currently I use the back arrows.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

     

    This is Tim with Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint Support.

     

    If you are using a Small Business (P1) subscription, you should have the option for Outlook across the top of the Team Site. You can click on that and it will take you to Outlook (OWA). Please refer to the screen shot below.

     

      

     

    I will continue to monitor this thread if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks,

  • What if your organization is on the E1 subscription? Is there a way to configure a link back to your portal page

  • Hi,

     

    Unfortunately, with Enterprise subscriptions, it is not possible to have the "Home", Team Site" and "Outlook" links across the top of the page. You have two options around this. You can create a bookmark/favorite in your browser so you can easily navigate back to the portal page. You can also create a navigation link in the Top Link bar to point back to your portal page.

  • what about the A2 plan for faculty? We also do not see the links across the top of the page when we are on outlook. When we type portal.microsoftonline.com it will take us to the "home" where the links will show up. Should the A2 plan have these links?

  • The A2 is equivalent to E2 and no, there will be no top menus on top of the page.

    If you still want them (but I suggest adding bookmarks), you can modify the master page.

    I did a fast change, and it is possible.

     

      

    You have to copy the code from an P plan and paste it into the master page.

     

     <span><div class="SHOrangeBackground" id="Shell-Header-Background">
            <div class="SHContainer" id="Shell-Header">
                    <span class="SHSpanLogo"><div class="SHLogo" id="Shell-Header-Logo">
                                <img style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="https://msol.vo.msecnd.net/3.06.3227.0/Unknown/en-US/Shell/Images/header_logo_office.jpg">
                        </div></span><span class="SHSpanTopMenu"><div id="Shell-Header_TopMenu" class="SHTopMenu">
                            <span class="SHTopMenuSeperator"><a id="HomeID" href="https://portal.microsoftonline.com/IWDefault.aspx">Home</a></span><span class="SHTopMenuSeperator"><a id="OutlookID" href="https://outlook.com/owa/office365.com?exsvurl=1">Outlook</a></span><span class="SHTopMenuSeperator"><a id="SharepointID" href="/TeamSite" class="SHTopMenuActiveLink">Team Site</a></span>
                        </div></span><span class="SHSpanMeTile"><div id="Shell-Header-MeTile">
                                <div id="Shell-Header-UserName" class="SHUserName">
    Alexandru Dionisie
                                </div><div class="SHSignOut">
                                    <a id="Shell-Header-SignOut" href="http://login.microsoftonline.com/logout.srf?ct=1346544812&amp;rver=6.1.6206.0&amp;lc=1033&amp;id=271346">Sign out</a>
                                </div>
                        </div></span>
            </div>
    </div></span>

    Then do some alignments and some arranging and that is all.

  • That code is very customizable.

    You must be careful with the href for your Team Site.

     

    I will create an tutorial in The Grid and then I will paste it here, so that you and others can add those navigation links back into E plans.

  • Here is the complete solution:

    After a very fast test, I hurried up and posted the solution. The links had a very ugly look, but later that day I managed to solve the look problem.

    Before

    After

     How to solve the problem ?

    • first of all, we need a browser with a Developer Tool or Firebug.
    • we need an P planto copy the code from:
      • right click in the header and choose Inspect Element or Inspect Element with Firebug

      • In the code panel the selected code belongs to the header menu.

      • Now we must copy that code: right clickcopy html
      • The code is:
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    9
    10
    11
    12
    <div class="SHOrangeBackground" id="Shell-Header-Background">
            <div class="SHContainer" id="Shell-Header">
                    <span class="SHSpanLogo"><div class="SHLogo" id="Shell-Header-Logo">
                        <img style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="https://msol.vo.msecnd.net/3.06.3227.0/Unknown/en-US/Shell/Images/header_logo_office.jpg">
                        </div></span><span class="SHSpanTopMenu"><div id="Shell-Header_TopMenu" class="SHTopMenu">
                            <span class="SHTopMenuSeperator"><a id="HomeID" href="https://portal.microsoftonline.com/IWDefault.aspx">Home</a></span>
                            <span class="SHTopMenuSeperator"><a id="OutlookID" href="https://outlook.com/owa/office365.com?exsvurl=1">Outlook</a></span>
                            <span class="SHTopMenuSeperator"><a id="SharepointID" href="/TeamSite" class="SHTopMenuActiveLink">Team Site</a></span>
                        </div></span><span class="SHSpanMeTile"><div id="Shell-Header-MeTile">
                        </div></span>
            </div>
    </div>
      • Now we edit the code according to our needs:
    • Now we download a copy of the E plan master page and add the above code, bellow the following line:

     

    •  Save the changes and upload the master page file back to SharePoint.

    The final result is:

    Note:

    • in the code, edit the id=”SharepointID” href=”/SitePages/Home.aspx” and add you Team Site link.

    Example:

    id=”SharepointID” href=”/SitePages/Home.aspx”

    id=”SharepointID” href=”/teamsite/SitePages/Home.aspx”
