  1. 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.

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

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    モダン サイトの "ユーザー" の Web パーツに新しい役職名が反映されない
    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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Add possibility to include multiple groups to Yammer Highlights web part

    Currently, the modern view of the Yammer Highlights web part can only be connected to a single Yammer group. We would like to have a functionality to feature "selected" posts from multiple groups in a single web part.

  14. 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.

  16. Anchor tag for Quick Links & People web parts

    I would like to see the ability for the Quick Links and People web part to have an anchor tag like the Headings. My company frequently has multiple of each of these web parts (sometimes there are more than two dozen on a page), so it would be nice, especially for mobile, to have a simple way of allowing users to get to the information they need.

  17. Icon web part

    Request Add a new icon web part in the page editor. it would be great to have a dedicated web part to display a selected icon.

    Say you have a 2 column row, one side is information about a given topic. On the other side, rather than an image or having to upload my own icon file, It would be awesome to be able to simply add an icon wp and select an icon that matched the topic on the other side.

  18. org chart search and expand

    Would be really useful to be able to search the org chart webpart.

    Also, can it be made to show recursive reporting levels down as well as up? Perhaps in a traditional hierarchical style chart.

  19. Improve the "list" layout options in the highlighted content web part

    Add more customization options to the "list" layout for the highlighted content web part. Allow the user to choose whether to show or hide the file icon and the column heading. We are trying to use it for in-topic navigation and removing the icon and the column header would be cleaner. And since the Title is the only column that appears, there is no need for a column heading for "Title".
