  1. Enable creation of section headings in navigation bars

    Enable section headers in the navigation bars without having to create a parent page and url.

    This feature was in the "old" sharepoint and very useful for grouping navigation options. The sub link option goes part of the way towards this, but requires a parent page which is not always relevant.

  2. Pin/favourites

    Being able to follow sites is helpful but they're very broad, it would be useful to be able to pin/follow more specific folders and subfolders, and to pin/add as favourites some documents

  4. Modern Team Sites and Communications Sites in SP Online - Would like option to use Managed or Structural Navigation

    We have an existing portal with managed navigation. Team members would like to use the Modern Team Sites and the new Communication Sites, however these come with their own navigation that can be edited directly on the page.

    We are hoping to be able to able to add Managed Navigation and\or Structural Navigation to these type of sites. If publishing could be enabled successfully (at this time it cannot) we would have access to the classic navigation menu.

  5. SharePoint to Teams

    On Group site, I would like to have an ability to link to Teams. I was able to add Planner but the trifecta of collaboration capabilities for us now is (attempting) SharePoint, Teams and Planner. Navigating between them should be seamless. Thx

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    •Navigation options for SharePoint Online - https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Navigation-options-for-SharePoint-Online-adb92b80-b342-4ecb-99a1-da2a2b4782eb?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

    The workaround in this case was to shift from using…

  12. Add List View Name in Breadcrumb Format Next to List/Library Name

    Show List/Library View Name in Breadcrumb format next to list/library name.
    When custom views are created, it is very difficult to see the small view name text in the upper right hand corner of the page. It makes more sense to have it show at the top near the list/library name.

  13. Enable configurable switch to disable "Recent" in SharePoint quicklaunch navigation

  14. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
