  1. Enable choosing the path for Team Site

    When I create a Team Site, I can't choose directly between /Sites and /Teams in the New Form. It is dependent on the setting I chose in Settings -> Site Creation. It is annoying, because it adds a steps whenever I need to create a Team Site with one or another managed paths. It works perfectly for Communication Site, so why not for Team Site?

  3. Set "Communication Site" as Root site collection

    For organisations that would like to use Communication site as their intranet it would be great if you could provision the root site as a Communication site, rather than a team site with a redirect to the communication site.

    There is a workaround as mentioned here but i'd prefer a Microsoft supported method https://hangconsult.com/2017/06/29/change-sharepoint-online-root-site-collection-to-use-the-new-communication-site-template/

    We use the SharePoint sites created by using a template of Document Center, and we would like to add external users to a group with owner permission to allow them publishing anonymous guest links.
    The external users can publish the anonymous guest links from normal team sites, but they are not allowed to do that at libraries in Document Center. It occurs in multiple tenants and environments.

    Office 365 Connectors within SharePoint are only available for use within group-connected SharePoint team sites, according to https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/use-the-connector-web-part-db0756aa-f78f-4b74-8b19-be5dca0420e1.

  10. Provide option to convert existing site to communication site

    For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.

    It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.

    It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.

    It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)

  17. Hero Articles Improvements

    When creating hero news articles, you need to edit the page, and edit the web part. There needs to be a back end admin section to create these articles so you don't have to modify the page. Need to have an expiration date and time, as well as a sequence option for the ordering. It is to cumbersome to create the front and center articles that this webpart it designed for.
