  2. Allow modification of email digest template

    Please allow us to modify the email digest template to include the corporate logo. Preferably removing Microsoft and SharePoint from the top of the digest and moving them to the bottom next to get the app.

    - Select more than one category for an event
    - Tag events with managed metadata & Folksonomy
    - Add web-part to an event, to reveal related News Articles (based on common meta)

  4. SharePoint: add "Delete" or "Edit" option to Comments

    Is it in the plans to add a delete or edit function to the comment section on SharePoint? This increased functionality would be very beneficial. It would also be nice if the editors for the site had access to delete any comment that is made in case it is inappropriate. If I am missing this function somewhere, please advise.

  6. 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…

  7. E-mail Followers of communications site

    I would like to have the option to mail followers of my communications site within my business when we post a news article. At present we have a lot of news coming from product groups internally but unless a user checks their main sharepoint page they wont know if news is available and quite often things can go unseen. Ideally we would be able to post news and choose to mail our followers an alert on this to ensure their choice of topic is delivered to them.

  9. Remove Grey Border around Site Logo

    On modern pages, there is a grey/gray border present around the site logo. This border is not present on classic pages within the same site. This seems like a bug as there's no reason for the border to be present.

    Fix: Remove grey border around site logo on modern pages.

  10. Allow better embed function (not iframe)

    Allow us to have the ability to embed a twitter feed into the page. I tried the Embed part, but it would only allow iframe embed and not the embed code provided by twitter. This would be awesome!

    Love the new Communication site template and can really see it changing how SharePoint is used.

  11. Text Color, font and paragraph spacing

    Would be nice to have more formatting options like text color and font. This is very bland at the moment . Paragraph spacing options would also be nice as it makes the articles hard to read when there is too much spacing.

  12. Schedule a News Digest

    We should be able to schedule news digest emails. For example, every Friday send a news digest of that weeks news.

  13. Customize banner

    Allow more customization of the banner. It is WAY too big and I don't even know what resolution of image to put in there. Allow us to change the banner size and give us a tip on what kind of image should be placed in there. And if we want to remove the banner then allow us to change the font color or something. You are putting the communication site in far too small a box.

  18. table of contents on modern page

    Some times there is a need to create a long text divided by headings level 1 and 2, on a Communication site. There is already the heading functionalities. Would it be possible to add a table of content-functionality, and give the reader a chance to jump to next text section on a page, or click the relevant "heading" in the table of contents.
