  1. Stop opening links in new tab in modern pages

    Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.

    It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.

    Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.

    • Title Banner on Modern Pages

      Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.

      • drag and drop images in wiki pages and blogs

        other CMS systems already allow this functionality. Instead of having to save an image somewhere and then upload it to SharePoint, let me just drag / drop images on the wiki and blog pages. Would be ideal for screenshots

        • Enable Audience targeting on modern page web parts

          It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages. Thanks

          • Page templates for Modern Pages and Libraries that allow removal of elements and reuse

            Allow page authors to design page templates right in the Page Edit UI. Page edit would allow them to remove the Title Banner, Logo, left navigation, Edit link, New Link, Share Link, Search box and save the template for reuse.

            Page Templates would support web parts and new developed custom JS controls for things like custom navigation controls.

            • Add Page Image and Rollup Image to columns that can have default values set

              Within: Pages > Document Library Setting > Column default value settings. Add the ability to set a default image for the Page Image and Rollup Image columns.
              We are trying to make it easy for users to quickly create a new page, but we require these fields to be populated so they get displayed correctly in Content by Search web parts. Everytime someone creates a new page they have to manually populate these image fields. It would be great if we could default them to some generic image and if they wanted to they could change them

              • #Hashtags & @Mentions in blogs

                Blog pages/posts should allow 'Hashtags and @mentions but they currently dont.

                The rest of SharePoint social (micro blogging converstations, forum comments etc) make use of this. so it is beyond strange that if you comment on a blog you cant mention someone to make them aware etc

                • Enable custom columns for modern pages

                  Consistent with the classic "publishing" use case, would like the ability to add custom columns to modern site pages and make these columns editable in the page properties UI in the Site Pages document library.

                  An extension of this would allow editing of the page properties on the page itself, similar to custom page layouts on classic publishing pages.

                  • remove modern pages

                    This is some horrible nightmare that I woke up to. This "Modern Pages" roll-out is one of the worst things I've ever seen come from the Microsoft team. The ability for end-users to customize these new pages is extremely limited and now I'm getting backlash from our end users how ugly SharePoint is becoming and how we need to fix it (Like there's anything I can do). Now they want me to look at some other CMS and move to something different. At least give your customers some options.

                      Thanks for your feedback. We are adding more capabilities to modern pages (w.r.t. editing experience, layouts, RTE and web part catalog). You will soon see a lot of functionality rolling out this year. With that said, we would love to hear more from you around your asks/ desires that you wished modern pages would have.

                      Please note, we have not removed classic pages functionality from the site, so if you have parts that are not yet available, you can continue to use those side by side.

                        • Allow existing site pages to be added to the "News"

                          I see these pages have a "Promoted State" and "FirstPublishedDate" that are used to determine if a page should be shown as News, but these properties cannot be changed. I want to be able to take an existing site page, and publish it as News.

                          Alternatively, you could let me publish news to a library separate from the site pages so I'm not cluttering my wiki page library.

                          • Remove banner and header title from modern pages

                            I would like to be able to remove the header from the new/modern "Pages". When I add a new page on SharePoint online now, I love the new page except for the top header image and text which takes up about a 3rd of the page. It's wasted space and not aesthetically pleasing.

                              The Published date on Modern Site Pages in Classic SharePoint sites is defaulting to US format (MM/DD/YYYY) although the tenant is in AU format (DD/MM/YYYY).

                              The date format for other content in SharePoint Classic sites is MM/DD/YYYY which is same as Regional Settings.

                                • Configuring Search Results view in Modern pages

                                  Search Results Page of Modern Pages doesn't allow an option to customize the results view, change default scopes or switch to classic search results format. The search is locked to current site and result view format which mayn't be always what users need.

                                  While the Modern page UI is work in progress, at least, there should be an option to override the search results to default to OSSSearchResults or to an Classic Enterprise center if needed.

                                  • Define section background color in the modern pages

                                    Please let us define a custom background color for a Section on the page.

                                    It would allow us to give more "rhythm" to the page content and highlight some content on the page.

                                    For example the https://dev.office.com/ site uses a light blue "section background color" to separate the "getting started"-links from rest of the content.

                                    • Ability to nest "section layouts" inside of section layouts in the modern experience.

                                      We need the ability to nest section layouts inside of another section layout.

                                      For example, if we add a 1/3 section layout to a row, it would be very helpful to be able to add a 2-col or 3-col section divider to the larger section layout.

                                      • adhere to site collection date format

                                        When publishing a modern page the date is shown as MM/DD/YYYY. This 'looks' wrong since our tenant is set to DD/MM/YYYY
                                        It would be appreciated if all new pages/libraries/features adhere to the date format set by the site/tenant.

                                        I had feedback from Microsoft telling me that the format on the new pages is defined by the language (English) and not the region. Seriously??

                                        • Wiki link functionality in modern pages

                                          When editing text blocks in a modern web pages, I'd like to use the wiki link code [[New Page Here]] and have the same functionality, meaning that when saved I can click the "New Page Here" link and have a new page be created automatically with the original link going to the new page.
