  1. Web part support for Open Documents in Client Applications by Default

    Please add support for the "Open Documents in Client Applications by Default" site collection feature for web parts. Users click on documents in the 'Highlighted Content" and 'Recent files' web parts and they open in the online versions. This is frustrating and counter-productive as users must navigate to the specific document library where their files are. Then the "Open Documents in Client Applications by Default" site feature works properly.

  2. Excel Data Connection Refresh

    since the chart/excel data is actually constructed from a SharePoint list, it would be helpful if the data connections could refresh in O365 for this type of stuff, otherwise you need to manually open the excel file and refresh the data, this has been an issue for years...

  5. Ability to remove links in Hero Web Part

    I want to only use the 5-tile Hero across my site. At the moment if a tile has no link it is blank (fine). If I want to remove a link the only way to do this is to turn the 5-tile Hero into a 4-tile Hero. There is no way to remove a link (as you would for Quick Links for example).

  6. Display Multiple List Locations on Bing Maps web part

    Configure Bing Maps web part to display list item locations as multiple points on a map. Also, it would be nice to create a "map view" from the list if the Location field is being used.

  8. additonal web part functionality

    Introduce Accordions & Tabs (In-page) web parts | More Table Functionality

    Accordions help users see only the content they need. Accordions expand and collapse sections of content with a title.

    Horizontal & Vertical Tabs (In-page)
    Tabs are perfect for single page web applications, or for web pages capable of displaying different subjects.

    Tables are very limited. You can't even merge a cell? Enough said.

  11. highlighted content web part should show document name instead of document title

    Highlighted content web part should show document Name instead of document Title.
    Title column is often not used by end-users and it commonly displays title of a template file.
    This change would also bring consistency as the Activity web part and what I have seen of the new File Card both display the document Name instead of its Title.

  13. Add the possibility to select ''Title is Different from...'' in the filter options of the News Web part

    Adding the possibility to select the option: The title is different from ... in the News Web part, combined with another specific metadata filter, would allow us to show similar articles, without having to show the article they just read.

    Example : when publishing the economical Article #6, applying the option: The title is different from Article #6, and adding a metadata filter option to show all the economical articles...

    The News Web part would show all the economical articles excluding the Article #6 which the user had just read.

  14. RSS Feed part on ALL modern pages

    For unknown reasons the 'RSS feed' part is only available on 'group-enabled team sites' in modern sharepoint online.

    I would simply like to display an RSS feed in my hub site but since it isnt the 'right kind' of modern site I am denied the ability to use the RSS Feed web part.

    Such an arbitrary limitation, I am quite disappointed that I even have to mention this in UserVoice...

  15. Adding Teams Channels as Web part

    Being able to insert a channel of Teams as a web part to the SharePoint site will reduce the time that has been spent back and forth between the apps. It will also ensure users to check only SharePoint site to stay updated about recent developments. Web Part can have a directive link to teams.microsoft.com page to join meetings.

  16. Follow multiple Twitter accounts in Twitter (preview) webpart - create single webpart for multiple Twitter sources

    It would be nice if we could follow multiple Twitter accounts in a single webpart instead of needing a Twitter webpart for every account we wish to follow Tweets from. Perhaps have it so we can use OR in the listing: @microsoft OR @MSFT365Status OR @...

  17. Please add a borderless table option.

    Please add a borderless table option to the table menu so we can organize inforamation in columns without a visible grid. I've tried creating content in Word with a borderless table, but when I copy and paste it into SharePoint a black line border is applied. Thank you.

  19. Modern site 'people' web part not very useful

    The 'People' web part does not auto-populate with the group's members so it requires manual maintenance and therefore it's utility is limited as group membership will change and so this page information will be inaccurate.
    Or maybe I don't understand its purpose...

  20. A web part to show and handle my approvals

    I would like to have a web part that shows my approvals so the user doesn't need to navigate to flows.microsoft.com and log in to see them or handle them. That interface is confusing for users and could be much simpler for this task.
