  1. Reduce the lost space

    On the modern site, there is a lot of lost space on the right. It's annoying for large lists. The column are too smalls.
    And some times we don't see a lot of text for some columns.

    Regards.

  2. Published date and Page details should be visible to readers

    On SharePoint modern pages, Published date and Page details option are not visible to users with read access.
    These fields can be shown to readers so that they can see this information easily.

  3. Additional columns in Organization Assets Libraries

    When designating a document library as an Organization Assets Library it would be great if columns and views from the library were also available from the Organization Assets Library level so that images can be tagged and filtered by users. It would make it much easier for the users to find what they're looking for.

  4. Remove Modern Pages Header

    Appreciate some of the minimizing the header changes that have been implemented, but regarding the "Remove banner and header title from modern pages" - this is still not complete as you cannot COMPLETELY remove the header even in Plain. White space still exists even if you remove all text, I would like to have NO HEADER as an option

  5. Use embed code to display an html page in a SiteAssets library

    I would like to embed an html page (contains html and javascript) that is saved in the SiteAssets document library on the same SharePoint site.
    With classic SharePoint pages, I use a Content Editor Web Part to do this (I set the "To link to a text file, type a URL" to the site page). This works very well. I tried to do the same using the Embed web part in a Modern Page, by setting the html page as the src property of an iframe. But when I do that the page does not open in the page, but…

  6. Give option to disable shy header in modern pages

    The new shy header in modern pages looks good in OOTB pages, but if there are any customizations (e.g. with custom web part), especially at the top of the page, it cause scrolling issues....also if you have a back to the top button feature, it does not exactly scroll back up to the top. With an opt out/opt-in feature, if there are any customizations we can turn it off for a better UX.

  7. News Web Part Filter Not Available for Select Sites

    News web part pulls news from multiple site collections and hub site collections. An ability to filter based on a column i've added to those site collection page libraries would be nice. At present the filter option is only appearing when the News Source is "This Site".

  8. Print view for modern site pages/news

    Would be nice to have a print view on modern pages that only shows the content in a news article. Right now if you try to, for example, print to PDF it's a mess. We have some external users we would like to share the page with but don't want to give external access for just the one page.

  9. Remove shadow gradient on header images

    There ought to be an option to remove the shading on title images. Sometimes it adds a nice effect, but I have images that just don't look right with the black gradient laid over them. Thanks!

  10. Permissions in the "Site permissions side menu" need to reflect custom permissions against my site

    I'd like the permissions in the "Site permissions side menu" to reflect custom permissions against my site.

    Currently, any permissions that are different to the out of the box permissions are not displayed.

    Additional permission groups are not displayed.

    Even more concerning is if an owner makes changes to the permissions applied to those three out of the box permissions groups, they are not reflected in the site permissions side menu.

  11. Support persistent column width in modern Document Library web part

    When using a Document Library webpart on a modern page, persistent column widths are not persistent. When refreshing the page, the width setting resets. Users should be able to set a fixed column width though, for all columns. Wouldn't mind if this is done via JSON formatting.

  12. Audio Player for Modern UI

    For modern pages in SharePoint online, could there be a sound player. I have an audio file (MP3) and it would be good to be able to play that from the page.

  13. Copy and Save Webparts

    I have a set of quick links that I would like to be able to copy and reuse in other Modern UI pages. It would be great to be able to save and reuse webparts. Alternatively, it would be great to be able to design webparts (link this quick links web part) that could be shared and displayed on multiple pages in a site collection.

  14. Modern page template option in UI of document libraries

    Currently, you can only select a modern page template for a new page when you are on the homepage and select the New menu option for a page.

    If you are in a pages library and select New -> Site Page, it doesn't give you the option to select a template

  15. Save modern team sites as an template

    Why's not this an option? I would Love to to have this, I can't find the option on these sites, would make my life so much easier since we're using these as an organization and I need to make them often. I want to make a basic template for projects so I do not need to do them always manually.

    Is there a way to save them and make a new site collection with them?

  16. Set the Tile view as a default view in the Modern UI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    タイル表示を規定値にする機能

    Set the Tile view as a default view in the Modern UI


    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI においてはライブラリをリスト表示、タイル表示に切り替えることが可能になっております。
    しかし、現状はリスト表示が既定値となっており、タイル表示を規定値に変更しようと想定した場合に、要望を満たす機能が実装されていないです。
    視覚的なデザインを鑑みると、タイル表示を既定値として設定する機能の実装を要望します。

    Although it is possible to switch Library view to list view or tile view in the Modern UI, we cannot set the tile view as the default view for now.

    For improvement of usability and visual design of sites, allow us to set the tile view as the default view in the Modern UI library.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. TOO MUCH WHITE SPACE

    Stop with the extended leading on the modern UI pages. There is too much space. And I want to be able to add css so I can control how the page renders.

  18. 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.

  20. Completely remove page title from modern pages

    I know new features have come in that allow for a smaller page header/banner, but many of our users do not want to see page title (with name and job title) of the author on pages.
