Hi @JohnPappas-8749

You can configure favorites through GPO, but you can only have one top-level managed favorites folder.

You can configure favorites using this GPO ManagedFavorites. You need to Enable this policy and put the json data in the Options value. In the json data, we can only have one toplevel_name which is the top-level folder. The closest solution is to have two sub folders under the top-level managed favorites folder. To do this, you can set the json data like below:

 [{"children": [{"name": "Microsoft Edge Insiders", "url": "www.microsoftedgeinsider.com"}, {"name": "Microsoft Edge", "url": "www.microsoft.com/windows/microsoft-edge"}], "name": "Microsoft Edge links"},{"children": [{"name": "Microsoft", "url": "www.microsoft.com"}, {"name": "Bing", "url": "www.bing.com"}], "name": "Microsoft"}]

The result is like this:

Ideally we would like to have multiple top level folders based on OUs. For example there is the default company favorites all users would get, but then if they are in the HR group they would get HR favorites. And so forth for each different group. Is this not an option? it would all have to be under one top level folder?

Hi @JohnPappas-8749
I can understand what you want, but now we can only have one top level folder.
You can only put the different group folders under one top level folder.
