    • Add customization possibility to the new SharePoint Home page

      Based on the new feature being now rolled out at large: https://blogs.office.com/2016/05/04/sharepoint-the-mobile-and-intelligent-intranet/

      The new SharePoint Home page (landing page) is cool and we really appreciate the new look and feel.

      The only issue is that we can not customize that Home page and place the different items based on our priority!
      Based on what we have now:

      Links
      Followed Sites
      Recents
      Suggested

      It would be very interesting if we could place the LINKS on the right followed by the Followed sites!

      Then we would have the Recents and Suggested sites on the left menu.

      Basically being able to move parts…

      • "Modern" Libraries Should Respect Navigation Settings

        When in the "modern" pages, we see an entirely different set of navigation options in the top nav than when we are in "classic" SharePoint. These pages should all respect the same navigation settings.

        • Integrate a full breadcrumb in the Suite bar to facilitate navigation in deep collections

          In the top left (in the suite bar), integrate a breadcrumb (like in SharePoint 2010 with the hierarchical folder?) in order to facilitate the navigation in site collections.
          Users are sometime lost when they are browsing a document library and when the ribbon is displayed in the header, they have difficulties to find that they must click the "BROWSE" tab to go back to the navigation.

          • Enable nested menu items in left-hand (Current) navigation

            Why not be able to nest links in the Current navigation? Making a link a sub-link of another (e.g., via ">> Demote" and "<< Promote" buttons) would enable the nesting and create a pop-out menu when hovering over the left navigation item. This could work similarly to putting links inside a folder in the Global Nav, which creates a dropdown menu. If nothing is nested, the menu acts the same way as it does currently.

            • Hide Site Contents Access Links

              Allow Site admin's to control whether or not the "Site Contents" is displayed in the settings gear or in the navigation side bar.

              We do not want everyone to have access to the site contents page.

              • Make Sharepoint User Friendly

                It would be nice if the look and feel of share point was more windows based and user friendly. Its very archaic and challenging to navigate. A search engine inside of the program to pull information would be helpful. I have a lot of sales reps and customer service people who have rudimentary computer skills who continually are unable to use functionally and as a result I am unable to communicate information effectively.

                • Bring back the Promoted Sites/Icon capability.

                  This was a great way to highlight the major site collections and steer users toward the data they typically access. It makes for a migration from a previous version easier on the end user as well.

                  • Enable configurable switch to disable "Recent" in SharePoint quicklaunch navigation

                    mplement some sort of configurable switch to be able to disable the auto injected navigation node "Recent".

                    This "Recent"-navigation node - disaperance is on several customers wishlist for their own products based/developed on the SharePoint platform.

                    • Page Level Breadcrumb

                      Please enable a breadcrumb for navigating pages on SharePoint. Even if its just for Modern Pages... or Communication Sites.

                      Scenario:
                      We have our intranet on our main site collection (consisting of 6 sub-sites exc. the root site) and one of the biggest problems I come across from end users is that they dont know where they are.  They clicked a link from the homepage or from a news article, its taken them to the page they wanted to go to... but they have no idea where that is.
                       
                      The problem this causes is the user cannot find a way…

                        • Bring back tree interface for managed metadata navigation and filtering in "modern" new document library experience.

                          In the classic document library experience, you can have a tree interface for navigating metadata tags, filtering the items shown in the library, as described here: https://tinyurl.com/lvltljh

                          Currently, tree navigation is only available in the classic experience, not new, as explained here: https://tinyurl.com/m6knsj9

                          In my company, the tree navigation of metadata tags has been crucial for user adoption, weaning them off of the nested folder structure they were used to in file shares, by having an equivalent nested set of metadata tags (not folders).

                          I am hopeful this functionality can be added to the new document library experience so that…

                              Previously, in search, you could go directly to a folder that had the file you were looking for.

                              Now, you can only open the file in the screen.

                                So, Could you please develop and introduce the system that enables a prompt and active notification as RSS feature performs that kinds of behavior?

                                • Improve Performance of Structured Navigation in SharePoint Online

                                  One of our clients recently notified us that its SharePoint Online site was extremely slow. This was odd considering that none of our other customers were experiencing the same behavior. After some investigation, research, and a ticket with Microsoft, we learned that SharePoint Online's structured navigation feature was the gremlin in the engine. Related to this, here are some important articles to read.

                                    • Search function seems to be missing

                                      I cannot search for the files that I need to view?

                                      • Navigation from document libraries

                                        From the new document library, I'm unable to get back to our main homepage of the SharePoint site. We lost all of the branding applied to our site. It would be great to be able to navigate back to the homepage, and to see the breadcrumb of which site we are on.

                                        • Add the function of hiding user's information through the Delve screen.

                                          When searching for a person via [People Search], I can easily confirm the detailed information of user's, however, which behavior is not preferable from the security policy even users are the internal person of the organization.

                                          So that I hope the function will be implemented to allow hiding user's information on the Delve screen.
