  1. A Total Revamp for Wikis

    Could we please have the ability to create Wikis in SharePoint that look like TechNet or Wikipedia? Please try to make things more simple. Do not over complicate it again.

    • 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

          • 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.

            • #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

              • 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.

                • 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

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • IMPROVE Edit Page - use the user experience found in the PowerBI Preview

                          The PowerBI preview allows a user to drag reports anywhere on the page when creating a dashboard, without the complexities of Edit Page or understanding Webpart zones.. This same experience would be a significant improvement for all SharePoint pages. Please let's get SharePoint out of the 20th century!

                            • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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??

                                      • 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.

                                        • List web part Bug

                                          The list web part currently doesn't update after selecting a custom list view in a modern SP Page. Only the default view works.

                                          This would be an extremely useful feature if this worked as intended.
