SharePoint 2016 - Add custom Tiles to the app launcher (waffle menu)

This will tell you how to add custom tiles to the app launcher menu in SharePoint 2016 on-prem

Steps to implement custom tiles:
  • Check if at least FeaturePack 1 is installed (SharePoint Build 16.0.4456.1002 or above)
  • Enable the feature via PowerShell: Enable-SPFeature -Identity CustomTiles -Url <WebAppURL> -Force. It is a WebApplication-scoped feature, so it must be enabled and configured per WebApplication
  • A hidden list named Custom tiles will automatically be created in the RootSiteCollection of your WebApplication. It can be found in http://<WebAppURL>/lists/custom%20tiles
  • A new tile can be created by adding a new item to the list. The form will ask all necessary information
New tile
