Associate a SharePoint site with a hub site

A SharePoint hub site links together sites based on a project, department, division, region, etc. Associating a SharePoint site with a hub site makes it easier for users to discover related content, news, and site activity across all associated sites.

Important: Users will only see content, news, and site activity for which they have permissions.

If you are the SharePoint site collection administrator, you can associate a new or existing site with a SharePoint hub site. When you associate your site with a SharePoint hub site, it will inherit the look (theme) of the hub site and the hub site navigation bar will appear at the top of your site.

Note: You will not be able to edit the look of your site once you've associated it with a SharePoint hub site.

To associate a SharePoint site with a hub site

Notes: 

  • You must be the site collection admin to perform these steps.

  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have set up the targeted release options in Office 365. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

  1. On your site, click Settings Settings for SPO Migration tool and then click Site information.

  2. In the Edit site information panel, under Hub site association, select the hub site with which you want to associate your site and then click Save. The look of your site will change to match that of the hub site and the hub site navigation bar will appear at the top.

    Note: If the Hub site association option is not present or no sites are listed there, hub sites may not be enabled or you may not have permission to associate sites with a hub site. Contact your administrator for more information.
