  2. stream web part

    Improve the Stream web part. The Stream web part is fairly inelegant and out of step aesthetically and flexibility-wise with other web parts, especially when using the channel view. There is too much vertical space above and below the content so it never lines up with adjacent web parts, leaving odd jags in our layouts. In channel view you are stuck with the Stream channel banner, with logo and video and follower counts, which are unnecessary clutter. This whole banner should be toggleable on/off in the web part's settings. If we're stuck with it, we should at least be able…

  4. Change page or news page authors again

    Change page or news page authors

    this was ok 'till 16th march 2021

    please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

  5. New job titles are not reflected in the “User” web part on modern sites

    New job titles are not reflected in the “User” web part on modern sites


    SharePoint のモダン サイトに "ユーザー" の Web パーツがあるが、ユーザーの役職名を変更しても古いユーザー名が表示されたままとなる。
    反映するまでに数週間の時間がかかるため、改善を希望します。

    Even if you update a user’s job title, it will not be updated in the “User” web part on SharePoint modern sites.
    It takes several hours before it will be updated correctly, so please fix this.

  6. Increase Image webpart overlay text limit and enable overlay option in anytime

    48 characters is not enough to write a short sentence or write a path, could you please increase the overlay text limit. Also, for wide picture, it should have enough space for overlay text, however, it will be disabled by default.

  8. Improve organization of posts in the “News” web part

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "ニュース" Web パーツの投稿を整理する機能の改善要望
    Improve organization of posts in the “News” web part


    ■Description(内容):
    投稿を整理する機能を利用し、ピン留めのような形式でニュース投稿を表示させることができるが、表示しているニュースページを削除したり、フィルターによって非表示にするよう設定しても表示が残る動作のため、"ニュースの順序" から消す工数が発生し直感的に利用できない。
    "ニュース" Web パーツの投稿を整理する機能を利用しニュースの順序を設定した際、ニュース ページを削除したり、フィルターによって非表示となったニュースについては表示されなくなるよう、機能の改善を希望します。

    Using post organization functions, it is possible to keep a post displayed using a “pin”-like function, but even if that post is then deleted or hidden with a filter it will still show up, so extra work is needed in order to remove it from the “news feed”, which is unintuitive.
    Please make it so that filtering out or deleting posts that have been ordered using the “News” web part organization functions removes them from view.

  9. Add new layout options for the Hero Web Part - Equal Tiles and Stacked Layers

    The Hero Web Part is a very useful formatting tool for building pages in SharePoint, but there are a couple of additional formatting options that would make it even more useful.


    • Equal Tiles - tiles of equal size, equally spaced across the column-width, 2-across in each 1/3rd column, 3-across in each 1/2 column, 6-across in each 1/1 column, x n layers. Each equal tile functions like the tiles in the current Hero, with navigation link, title text + optional Action link and text.


    • Stacked Layers - functions like the current offset layers, but all layers are formatted with the image…

  11. I want to display information about the folder where the item is stored in the highlighted content Web Part

    I want to display information about the folder where the item is stored in the highlighted content Web Part

    強調表示されたコンテンツWebパーツ でアイテムが格納されているフォルダーの情報を表示させたい

    ■Description(内容):

    I've seen that the highlighted Content Web Part can show added and updated items in the document library, but I can't see in which folder in the document library the file is in. Therefore, we request the implementation of a function that displays the information of the folder in which the item is stored.

    強調表示されたコンテンツWebパーツ でドキュメントライブラリ内の追加されたアイテムや更新されたアイテムを表示絵できることを確認しているが、ファイルが、ドキュメントライブラリ内のどのフォルダー内にあるのか確認することができないので、アイテムが格納されているフォルダーの情報を表示させるような機能の実装を要望します。

  13. Allow the exclusion of sites from "Recommended for current user" News web part, or allow exclusion of "This site".

    Our intranet's landing page uses the "Recommended for current user" news web part, but the landing page also posts news. This means that news on the site is duplicated in the recommended for current user web part. Would be great if I could exclude "this site" or exclude news from specific sites.

    Behavior when playing a video in the “Page viewer” web part


    ■Description(内容):
    [ページ ビューアー] Web パーツでドキュメント ライブラリのページを表示し、ドキュメント ライブラリ内の動画を再生すると Web パーツ内で動画が再生される。
    その後 [×] ボタンをクリックすると Web パーツを配置したページから動画が保存されているドキュメント ライブラリに遷移してしまう。
    [×] ボタンをクリックした後にドキュメント ライブラリへ遷移せず、Web パーツを配置したページで動画を再生する前の状態になるよう、設定機能の拡充を要望します。

    If you use the “Page viewer” web part to display a document library page, and play a video from within the document library, the video is played within the web part.
    If you then click the “X” button, you are redirected from the page with the web part on it to the document library where the video is held.

    In a modern UI environment, I want to use a part equivalent to the query results web part in the SharePoint Online SPS.
    Also, I would like to be able to customize in detail the highlighted content part in the same way as you can customize the content search and query web parts.

  17. Org. Chart Webpart - browse hierarchy levels back

    The Org. Chart Webpart is very useful but it would be more convenient if people would be allowed to browse the hierarchy levels back. As far as I saw, it's only possible to go the ladder down.

  18. Connect Countdown timer webpart to Calendar/Events webpart

    The countdown timer is a very useful webpart that allows people to see quickly the count down to an event.

    However, when you have many events, it is very bothersome to remember to change manually the countdown timer every single time. Would it be possible to connect the countdown webpart with the events/calendar webpart? In that way, everthing would be more automatic and Sharepoint users would not have to waste time updating the countdown timer.

  19. Enable text alignment in table cells in the Text web part

    In SharePoint Online, it seems impossible to do vertical alignment of text in a table cell. The text always positions itself half way between the top and bottom of the cell. This is ... not good. I want my text to start at the top left corner of a table cell.

  20. highlighted content web part layout

    Highlighted content web part layout options

    It would be really helpful if the highlighted content web part could have the same layout options/styles as the quick links web part e.g. add Buttons, compact and tiles.
    Buttons particularly would allow the web part to be used for left/right nav, dynamic navigation links, across multiple pages. Helping to create consistent navigation through a related set of pages.
