  1. To provide features to restrict certain updates to modern pages created from a page template

    Like classic SharePoint publishing pages, it would be good to include possibility to restrict updates to the section layout and web part properties of a modern page created from a page templates.

    The need is to allow lock down of advanced editing features like add / remove sections, add / remove web parts, change placement of web parts on such modern pages and help mimic features of the classic publishing layout.

    The business case driving this change is to bring uniformity to page content created from specific page templates.

  3. Assign users different permission to post news depending on the news content

    I would like to set the news type and assign specific users who can post them depending on the news type when posting news in SPO.
    For example, we create two news types, announcement and notification, and assign User A a permission to post the announcement news and User B to post the notification.

  4. Add more obvious indicator that modern page is not published

    In classic SharePoint, draft pages had a yellow bar at the top, making it obvious the page hadn't been published. Need something like this on modern pages, as it's too easy to miss when a page hasn't been published.

  5. Bug - Publishing inconsistency.

    Bug Report. Inconsistent application of version number while publishing.

    If you have a Pages library with Major and Minor drafts enabled and approval content required then:

    If you use the publish option on the ribbon when you are done editing the page the Version number listed in the All Pages view is updated to the next major version number and goes to Pending state waiting for approval then someone approves it and the version number remains unchanged.

    However

    If you do NOT use the publishing option on the ribbon but instead go to the all pages view and use the…

  9. Open PP show as a show in SharePoint

    We NEED to be able to place .ppsx documents in a SharePoint site documents folder and have other users visiting that site open the file as a show and not in edit mode. This is a huge pitfall in SharePoint!!!

  12. show images in blog posts from Sharepoint online

    When a post is created with images (uploaded or referenced), they cannot be seen from the email of the post in Outlook or OWA - they just appears as missing images. An inspection of the email doe snot reference the full path to the images.... can this be corrected? This has been an issue for years - 2015 + with MS saying this is an "expected result" - how and why would this be an exceptable result?

  14. Device Targeting

    Please add Device targeting to Webparts like Quicklinks or Call to action (similar to audience targeting). For example, certain links in the Quicklinks Web Part are only displayed on the PC, other links are only displayed on an Android smartphone.

  15. Provide public information about limitations of OneNote

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneNote の制限事項に関する公開情報について
    Provide public information about limitations of OneNote


    ■Description(内容):
    OneNote を共同編集する際、同時接続可能なユーザー数を明示する公開情報がほしい。顧客へ、OneNote の共同編集する際の注意点や、同期時のパフォーマンス低下した際の説明をする際に、顧客を理解させるだけの材料が少なすぎるため、公開を希望します。具体的に、どれくらいのユーザーが同時に編集可能であるか、同時に閲覧するユーザー数のしきい値がどこまでに設定されているかを公開情報にしてほしい。
    I would like public information to be made available that identifies how many concurrent users can connect when co-editing on OneNote. There is too little information to help customers to understand when explaining co-editing or poor performance during synchronization. I would like specifically to make the public information about how many users can edit OneNote at the same time and what the threshold is for the number of the users that can view something simultaneously.

  16. Floating Format Text Menu Should Be Docked

    Even though I highlight some text, the floating Format Text menu does not always show up. I have to fuss around with highlighting other areas of text for it to show up. The menu should be docked in a consistant location. In addition, having to chase the menu all over the page, a single location would be much more efficient (muscle memory).

  17. Constant , Anchored Publish Button

    It would be great if the Edit and Publish / Republish button were in separate, constant locations. I will edit a page, perhaps Save as Draft, and the Republish button will disappear (replaced by Edit). Having the buttons switch back and forth causes me to have to take the extra step and time to refresh the page just to use the Republish button. It's inefficient and frustrating.

  18. Allow site admin to limit number of news posts shown in News web part

    I was surprised when I revisited the News web part and realized I can't set a limit on the number of items to show--e.g., 1 or 2. I have a scenario where I just want to show the one latest item in a news digest. Can't do it. Please enable this, and also a shout-out to this one:

  19. Approval history

    It should be possible to have an overview of the approval history. Who approved when, approver comments. The approved by column now has to be filled in via a workflow but should be done automatically.

  20. Archive for Expired News

    It should be possible to archive expired news, and archived news should be visible and searchable only for site owners. Currently there is no easy, sophisticated solution for this.
