  1. Don't show Modern List/Library WebPart when user has no permissions

    When you place one of the modern List / Library Preview WebParts on a page showing a list/library where the viewing user doesn't have access to it shows the webpart with the "This folder is empty" view. It also has a link "See all" that leads the user to an Access Denied page. This is not user friendly.

    Don't show the webpart if the user doesn't have access to the list or make this an option.

  2. #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

  4. Starting number of a Numbered List

    At the moment there is no way to create a numbered list with a specific starting number. It would be importand to create knowledgebase pages. For example, in the middle of an action plan, I'd like to insert a picture. It requires a new image web part. The next Text web part, however will restart the numbering and I cannot continue from where I left off.

  5. Add Page Views as Column Option in Site Pages

    It's great to have total Views listed on each News post and Site Page within Modern Pages. Number of Views also shows up within the News web part for every post. However, Views is not an "Add Column" or from "Edit Current View." However, I can add other similar fields such as "Like Count" and "Comment Count." It's helpful to be able to export this information from my site pages automatically related to the News post. Right now I have to manually add the Total Views to the comment and like counts. Since we don't have much with site usage…

  6. Make custom page templates available to all sites in hub

    When you create a page template on a hub site, then it would be great if that page template would be available to all sites associated with the hub.

  7. Allow existing modern pages to be promoted to the "News", and demoted back from news to page

    It´s very important to not only promote modern pages to News, but also to be able to demote News back to page, i.e. if one promoted a page to News accidentily, or as soon as a News reached it´s timeframe where it´s no News anymore, but the info it contains has to be maintained as a page.

  10. Anchor links in menu and suggested links

    Addition of anchor links is great, and here are a two things that would make the user experience better.


    1. Allow linking to anchors in site menu navigation

    2. Have the anchor appear in the list of suggested links when using the text editor to add a link, or at least available while in edit mode. Saves time from having to leave edit, fethc the link and the go back to editing, esp if you have many anchor links.

  12. Bring back the "Replace" option for overwriting files

    Currently in the modern experience of a Document Library, users cannot copy a file to another document library using the "Copy To" function, if the file has the same name. Up until several weeks ago, when a user would try to do this, a call out window would appear asking the user if they wanted to Replace the existing file in the destination library. If they decided to replace it, the new file would become a new "Version" in the Version History. So no files would be lost.
    This functionality was recently removed, and now they have no option, they…

  13. Allow anchor links to be used in the modern Quick Links web part

    Anchors were recently released for Modern Pages which is great... but we cant use them in Quick Links web parts... they just don't work.

    I would expect when a URL with an anchor is added into a Quick Link at the top of a page, that page would automatically scroll down to the correct heading (as it does when you click the anchor symbol at the end of a heading).

    This does not happen; nothing happens. Please update the behavior of the Quick Links web part to allow a URL with an anchor to work correctly and take the user…

  14. Embed code

    Embed code says to contact SharePoint- "We only support embedding content from secure websites (their addresses start with https.) If it's important to embed content from unsecured websites, please send us feedback." Specifically weather alerts such as the hurricane information for Harvey and IRMA?

  19. Email News Digest - Provide ability to Blind Copy (BCC) recipients and Customize Subject Line

    Provide ability to Blind Copy (BCC) recipients in the To field when sending an email news digest from Hub webpart. Allow users to customize subject line so instead of "Bonnie Lang shared this with you" can instead say "Adrian Newsletter for July 8, 2018".

  20. Modern SitePage un-anchor the heading in desktop mode

    A user should be able to scroll down seamlessly leaving the chrome bar, any application customizers on top and headings (title and logo) off the screen when in desktop mode. The corporate world would benefit from adding a setting to disable that anchored area since most of the employees are still using 15 inch laptops where the experience is awful if one application customizer is installed on the page. You can see an example in the SharePoint docs issue I created: https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1284
