        As shared at Ignite 2017 “hub sites” will include a configurable cross-site navigation control. You can check out that session here: https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53858

        Additionally, there are several SPFx examples (https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-extensions/tree/master/samples) that can be leveraged to build out custom application customizers to support cross-site navigation scenarios.

      • A Total Revamp for Wikis

        Could we please have the ability to create Wikis in SharePoint that look like TechNet or Wikipedia? Please try to make things more simple. Do not over complicate it again.

          • Optionally disable feedback button

            I see this Feedback button everywhere. Can I disable that this button is shown to my end-users? Please add this as an option I can set for a whole Site collection. Because users think this feedback is going to our internal IT department.

            • Ability for administrators to disable office online chat

              We have shared class notebooks setup enabling classes of 30+ students free range to chat to each other. As you can imagine teachers are finding this hard to manage, especially when they're off task inside of a program where work is also taking place; making it incredibly easy for the sneaky students to hide their off topic discussions!

              Furthermore the chat logs are not saved anywhere - this really does open up a host of child protection issues where cyber bullying could take place within the school without any logs of it ever happening.

              • Support inviting external users to multiple SharePoint security groups

                It appears that when you add an external user to a site collection security group in SharePoint Online and then add them to another security group in the same site collection, if the user hasn't accepted the invite yet then they will only be granted permissions to the second security group.

                For example, if I create a new site collection and I add an external user to the Visitors group then an invite email is sent to the user. If I then add that same user to a second security group and the user hasn't yet accepted my invite, then…

                • Introduce markdown syntax for authoring content

                  As a systems engineer/developer, I love the office 365/sharepoint platform. The one thing that's stops me from using it for everything is the lack of a productive way to generate content.

                  Editing content in the UI is horrendously slow and painful, I just want to be able to author content quickly with markdown syntax, and publish my content/documentation quickly and easily.

                  What's microsofts standpoint on this? Am i the first to request this? (i highly doubt i'm the only one who wants this...)

                  Cheers,

                  Morgan

                  • SharePoint 2013 workflow email to distribution list

                    I found out after contacting Microsoft Support that you are not able to use the "Send Email" action in SharePoint 2013 Designer to send the email to a distribution list (group type of distribution or security). In order to send an email in a SharePoint workflow to a distribution list (allmanagers@company.com), you have to use a SharePoint 2010 workflow.

                    I was informed that SharePoint 2013 workflows can only send emails to organization users.

                    Please allow the ability to send to a distribution list within the GAL/org. This is a very common request so changes in recipients do not…

                    • Branding sharing email invitation

                      It would be great to do some branding on the sharing invitation e-mail message. For example replacing the Office 365 logo with your company logo and changing the color scheme.

                      • Customize SharePoint Sites Page

                        Give users the ability to customize this landing page. For example, I would like to see all of the sites I am following instead of just my frequent ones or suggested ones. I know there is a search box, which I sometimes utilize, but it's not very noticeable so I forget it's there. Also, what's the difference between "Frequent" sites and "Recent" sites listed on the left? Seems redundant to me yet there are different sites listed? Doesn't make that much sense to me. Thank you.

                          • Reliable presence information in SharePoint Online

                            Currently SharePoint Online getting presence information from local Skype for Business client. It would be great it actually talks to Lync Online at the background (similar to OWA) so that users can see presence information regardless of they are logged into Skype or not. Furthermore, presence information does not work on Chrome, due to the same reason, this gives an inconsistent experience across browsers and can benefit from improvement.

                            • Make it possible to attach a link to a SharePoint file in Outlook 2016 without breaking permissions inheritance

                              In Outlook 2016, when you add a SharePoint file as an attachment to an email, the file it is attached as an edit link, which automatically breaks the permissions inheritance when the recipient opens the file (even if he or she already had access to it). You have the option to send the attachment as a view link, which also breaks the inheritance or as a copy, but it is not possible to attach the file as a direct/restricted link. This means that it is not possible to attach a link to a document in Outlook 2016 without breaking the…

                              • expire external user access

                                Similar to the ability to expire a guest link, it would be nice to have the ability to expire external users (in the Admin portal where you see external users listed per site collection?). When the authorized internal user invite an external user (outside organization), please offer a control to allow for the expiration of access (e.g. 7 days, 1 month, "custom" or hard date like June 30, 2016). This takes away follow-up administration, especially handy for invite clients to your portal for only the timeframe of a project.

                                • Keep hidden OSX hidden files when uploading to Sharepoint (.ds_store)

                                  When I upload files to Sharepoint, everyone can see OSX hidden system files such as .DS_STORE. These are files hidden to users that contain information such as position of files, size of the window etc. Windows users are not familiar with this and OSX users shouldn't see those, and I have to manually delete them in my browser.

                                  Please make the hidden files invisible as they should be.

                                    • Please provide option to customize email templates

                                      Please provide option to customize email templates used to send notifications out of SharePoint online like "Send by Email" feature on modern UI pages, sharing notifications to other users. Most organizations do not allow users to install mobile apps. Providing information that is not approved will confuse the users and require constant training.

                                        • Customize the SharePoint Sites page.

                                          I'd like to customize the experience for _layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx page in my tenant. Nothing too big, but promoted sites would be nice, and maybe the ability to add a few web parts, etc.
