  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.

      • 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 Layouts in Modern Pages

          The modern pages are great, however there should be more flexibility such as being able to select different page layouts and would take the best from the old classic pages and incorporating with the new modern look and feel.

          • Publish date format defaulting to US Format in Modern Pages for other regions

            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.

            • Full-Width Column Webpart available to Team Site Template

              In the Modern Experience, allow the option to add "Full-Width Column" webpart. Currently, this is exclusively available for Communication Site template. Would be great to have this available for Team Site template. It does not look aesthetically appealing have this area of white space on the right hand on a site page.

              • 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.

                • Anchor Links or Collapsing Sections

                  It would be helpful to have sections that collapse, tabs, or anchor links for pages that contain lots of information. Word allows you to create bookmarks, and OneNote allows you to create tabs to easily navigate lots of information on a given topic. It would be great if you had the same flexibility with a page in SharePoint

                  • 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

                        • remove recycle bin from left navigation for Visitors

                          Recycle bin is not relevant for visitors resp. page viewers (users with read permission to the site.) Add the ability to remove it from navigation.

                          People who wants it can always add it as a standard link to the menu.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Allow changing the width of columns when adding sections to a Modern Page

                                Looks like you can't change columns' width when creating a new section in a Modern Page. Being able to chage it would be very useful. My classic page, for example, has a section containing 3 columns, where the first and last ones have their width set to 25%, while the central one has width set to 50%. In Modern Pages, I can only have 3 columns with the same width, 33% in this case.

                                    There is too little control of a Modern Page. You can't control text size and coloring, you have limited format control, and most of all you can't *edit source*. I used this to drop in things like Image Maps or other HTML that there was no way to add in.

                                      There is too much white space on the new modern pages. I would rather see less white space and be able to adjust the spacing myself.

                                      • Improve Highlighted content web part to support custom content types and their custom columns

                                        I'd like to show users documents from an another site (different o365 group site). I came across the Highlighted content web part which is a very flexible and potentially useful function. However I can not filter my documents with it as it
                                        1 does not show custom content type at the type or document type filters (even though my content type is directly inheriting Document), and does not lists my documents either (basically being Documents because of the inheritance)
                                        2 can not select custom columns of my content type at the managed property filter.

                                        • 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.
