  1. Make hub sites Bi directional.

    Owners of a Hub site can post new/ links / events that will appear on all connected sites. EG information can flow down not just up.

  2. Cross site document libraries

    Document libraries in hub sites should be available to sites that are apart of the Hub site. We've recently migrated our Intranet to SharePoint and elected to use the modern Communication site as a hub site and have created other communication sites to serve as department sites. It's frustrating to have to reupload common images (logos, etc.) to each individual site. We'd like to see a scenario where we can browse and use those libraries in the Hub site throughout the connected sites.

  3. Ability to hide the Hub Site navigation

    Add the ability to hide the hub site navigation via some setting or powershell.

    The hub site navigation is a list of static links with no security trimming and no way to target an audience. With the introduction of SharePoint SPFx extensions we have the ability to create a header on top of the page. The most common usecase in this scenario is to create a customized menu. However if hub sites are used and you need a customized menu you will have two menu's at the top.

    Here are a few business scenario's for a customized menu

    We don’t intend to support hiding hub navigation per site, however there are a few key solutions you can use (now and soon):

    Audience targeting in navigation https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/target-navigation-news-and-files-to-specific-audiences-33d84cb6-14ed-4e53-a426-74c38ea32293

    We’re working on delivering global navigation, you can read more about it in this blog post: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-sharepoint-blog/innovations-for-workplace-communications-and-employee-engagement/ba-p/1696149

  4. Share lists across site collections

    When will we be able to share lists across modern sites in SharePoint? This is the number one driver for creating subsites.

    The unstructured google search nature of managed metadata doesn’t cut it in the business world. Business information is highly structured, based on lists; contracts, purchase orders, work packages, invoices, etc. Filtering and search refiners get results, not hit and miss vague searches based on tags.

    You don’t want us to use classic subsites? Fine. Then make the reason for using subsites work in modern.

  5. Need a method to export and import hub site navigation links

    In my Intranet I plan to have many hub sites in which I would like to duplicate about a hundred links without having to manually create them all. It would be great to be able to script this with PowerShell.

    Another great option would be to allow you to connect to the term store for a set of links to display (giving you centralized control and singular management)

  7. Hub Site Content Rollup Filtering

    Add filtering to News and Events rolled up to the Hub Site e.g. allow filtering by a metadata column to selected items are shown rather than all. This would allow news to show in a connected site but only appear on the Hub based on the filter criteria.

  8. Make option: Create content types on Hub sites that will be available for connected sites

    Make option: Create content types on Hub sites that will be available for connected sites

    If you have i.e. 10 sites connected to the hub site this option will reduce the maintenance of content types in individual sites.

    This should be optional and replace the content type hubs

  9. UX and PowerShell cmdlet that lists all sites connected to a Hub site

    We need a cmdlet that lists all the sites that are linked to a Hub Site. Maybe call it Get-SPOHubSiteLinkedSites and it would take as a parameter the URL of the Hub Site.

  10. Hub sites: suppress sites on sites web part if no access

    Hub sites: suppress sites where you have no access.
    Sites that are on the sites web part in hub sites should be suppressed when the user has no access.

    That is in line with behavior on SP sites

  11. Nested Hub Sites

    Don't think this has been suggested yet, but Hub sites should definitely allow nesting!! The flat/flexible organization is good, and allowing some hierarchy/rollup with hubs is better, but would be best if a hub could be a sub of another hub (a branch, sub of region, sub of district) and have rollup through each level of nested hubs. Allows best of both worlds - flexibility of flat and dynamic association, with advantages of multi-layer hubs!

  12. Allow sites to be associated with multiple Hub Sites

    As soon as I saw Hub Sites announced, I thought of the possibilities of creating customized portals for each of our internal groups. However, as I read the documentation, I saw the limitation that a site can only be associated with one Hub Site and that nixed the idea. Each group has its own info, but also there are sites where shared info resides. I saw Hub Sites as an opportunity to bring the shared information and the specific group info into a custom portal for each group. Please reconsider the limitation. If the goal of Hub Sites is to…
