SharePoint Online (Office 365) - Table of Contents WP is not updating/does not reflect Site Settings

  • Hi Eric,

    As I checked the image for the Navigation Settings, the setting is to display the navigation as the parent site.

    Actually, the Table Of Contents web part does not reflect the navigation setting when it is set to display as the parent site.

    Please change the setting to Structural Navigation instead and then check if it is what you need.

    Best Regards,
