  1. Missing page layout option in communication sites

    The publishing possibilities shown in the new communication sites serve a great insight of possibilities to create content in SharePoint. While this is an suitable approach for user generated content such as in Wikis there is a high demand to provide a consistent corporate wide communication.
    In the past this was possible through page layout option which is now missing and removes the ability for corporate communication departments to manage, plan and organise the content to communicate.
    In addition the missing page layout option lead to inconsistent and at least time consuming page creation. It will be hard to recreate…

    • Communication Site: Themes and and branding options missing

      The current communication site template cannot be used for corporate wide communication because there are some important things missing.
      The overall design is only able to speak and represent only the Microsofot CI/CD. The missing branding and theming options makes it hard to be used in corporates because there is currently no way to apply corporate communication and design guidelines to the page. For user it makes it hard to identify the page as an official communication channel by the company and not by Microsoft.

      In addition not even well known and supported customisations through Themes is possible at the…

      • Communication sites lacks of consistent communication and usability

        The flexibility of page creation mostly will overwelm business users and is definitly not markting and communications departments like to have. There goal is to provide fast and effiecent information. Right not the community portal lacks of two things:
        1) Consistency - Any user can create any layout and it will be hard, time consuming and inefficient to create a consitent layout
        2) Missing metadata for further filtering and content categorisation
        3) No branding options to speak the tone and voice of the companyThis is the most challenging piece of inconsitent communication because it doesn't allow to speak the voice…

          • Divider Web Part with colored background that works in "full-width column" layout

            To allow a little more customization to the look & feel, I suggest a very simple web part that would allow you to do a full width divider section where the user could pick the background color and the height. The web part would then go edge to edge in the column it is placed in and allow for the user to design visual breaks between sections. A nice to have would be the ability to add some styled text (font, size, color) aligned to the left, middle, or right side of the divider.

            For the idea to really add…

            • Allow separately controlling the creation settings between the Communication site and Office 365.

              For security protection, I am considering to restrict the creation of the Communication site by general users. However, I have received the guidance from the support desk that the Office 365 group will also be the same setting when controlling the creation of the Communication site in conjunction with each other by default behaivor.

              Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved to allow general users to create Office 365 groups only, therefore, it would be useful if the feature will be allowed separately controlling the creation settings between the Communication site and Office 365 as well. Thank you for…

              • Scrolling in Communication Sites / Modern Pages Broken

                In Communication sites as well as in modern pages scrolling via the keyboard (page up / down or arrow keys) does not work upon initial load of the page using Chrome.

                Scrolling only works if the content area is clicked / selected.

                In Communication Sites I cannot click the content area, because it is full of hero images and I would be redirected so I have to click the scrollbar with the mouse, then I can use the arrow keys to scroll.
                In a regular modern page I have to click somewhere in the content area and I am able…

                • Allow application of standard SharePoint Themes

                  In the new Communication Sites, you can see the "Change the look" option under site settings but when trying to apply it to the communication site, it just stalls with "Working on it..." and never applies the theme, even the standard out of the box ones. If we could apply a bit more color to the pages using this, it would increase adoption.

                  • Allow self-service site creation for team sites, but managed/curated site creation for comms sites.

                    In the SharePoint start page, admins should be able to limit self-service provisioning to team sites only, with comms sites going through a more structured and more rigorously governed process.

                    This is in line with some of the most basic tenets of intranet governance, and the consequences of not having this capability can have strong negative impact on intranet governance by allowing any user to create a site with whatever URL they want (e.g., sites/executiveleadership) without any consideration to how it fits in overall navigation, taxonomy, naming conventions, etc.

                            • Site default language

                              It is very important to have the choice of default language of the created team/communication sites. We need default language English but at this time it is not possible. This is not usable for us. We can't use Create web at this time. It is very sad for us. Please add this feature quickly. Many thanks.

                                It would be nice to have a script editor style web part so we could add css to a page and therefore style the page. Also, it would be nice to be able to create a communication based site from the Standard SharePoint create site link.

                                    Search on communication sites is only returning documents. Would be nice if it also returns site pages.

                                    • JavaScript error on german communication site in first release tenant

                                      Hi, I have a german tenant. I notice two JavaScript errors on the communication site Home.aspx. 1. (Fetch)Post Request to https://<...>.sharepoint.com/sites/KommunikationwebsiteMelden1/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle('Documents')/RenderListDataAsStream?View= --> The list title in German is Dokumente, so GetByTitle produces an error! 2. https://<..>.sharepoint.com/sites/KommunikationwebsiteMelden1/SitePages/none 404 SitePages non is not available!

                                      Please correct this!

                                          if there was a collection of useful templates or Specimen Communications that would be sent from Site Admin
