  1. Footer of the Hub site to propagate to all associated sites like the Hub menu

    The footer of a Hub Site should be propagated along with the Hub menu and the look and feel to all the associated sites.

  2. Add option to stop hub sites forcing themes on associated sites

    As much as I like the concept of hub sites giving a common theme and navigation across associated sites, sometimes (quite often in fact) I'd like the associated sites to only inherit the navigation and not the theme itself.

    I have a department that uses our company colours for each of their teams within it. I have SharePoint theme's of our company colours, but if I group them in a hub I lose those themes. Or I don't associate them lose the navigation across them.

    All I'm really asking for is an option to not inherit the theme. Or I…

  4. Would like to open a navigation link at the top of hub sites in a new tab/window

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ハブ サイト画面上部のナビゲーションのリンクについて、新しいタブかウィンドウで開きたい

    Would like to open a navigation link at the top of hub sites in a new tab/window
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    "リンクの編集" より URL を設定し、作成したリンクをクリックすると現在開いているタブ内で画面が遷移する。
    これを新しいタブか新しいウィンドウで開く設定ができるように、機能を追加してほしい。

    When setting URL from “Edit Link” and then clicking the created link, the screen will be navigated to the link page within the same tab that is currently opened.
    I would like you to add a feature to be able to open the link in a new tab or window.

  5. Invalidate displaying sites from "Hub Site association" in conjunction with deletion.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): ハブサイトの削除時の動作について機能の変更を希望します。

    Invalidate displaying sites from "Hub Site association" in conjunction with deletion.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    ハブサイトとして登録したサイトをハブサイトとしての登録を解除せずに削除した場合、"ハブサイトの関連付け" に表示され続ける動作かと存じます。事前に解除をせずとも、削除済みのサイトに関しては "ハブサイトの関連付け" から表示されなくなるよう動作の変更を希望します。

    When a site registered as a Hub Site has deleted without deregistering, after that it is continuing to be displayed as a site in the "Hub site association" consecutively by current design.

    It would be nice if the functionality will be improved that can delete displaying sites from "Hub Site association" in conjunction with deletion without canceling the registration.

  6. 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

  7. When the mouse is hovered over the link displayed on the navigation bar of the hub site, the display differs depending on the browser.

    ハブサイトのナビゲーションバーに表示されるリンクにマウスを置いたときに、ブラウザーによって表示の違いがある。IEでは下線が表示されないが、Chromeでは表示される、統一された表示にしてほしい。

  8. Provide an option to set the default Search Scope to the entire hub in associated sites

    We have content in our hub site (SharedDocuments folder) that users expect to find in associated sites. The hub is good at pulling content from associated sites but it doesn't seem that the associated sites pull in search results from the hub. It would be nice if we could set the default scope in the associated site to be the hub (or all sites). Right now they have to search, get no results, then click on the link search all sites instead or use the breadcrumb to get the desired results.

  9. Provide ability to move hub navigation below site navigation

    In some scenarios, we don't need the site navigation, only the hub navigation when our navigation for the hub is global and it would be preferable to have that row below the site navigation so it is closer to the content the user is engaging with..

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. When removing the Quick Launch from navigation, the SEARCH bar is also removed!

    Separate the SEARCH function from the Quick Launch. I'd like to disable Quick Launch when switching from Seattle to Oslo look and feel but this also removes the SEARCH box. There is then no way to add back the SEARCH box via a web part or other OOTB method.

  13. Hub site names must be unique

    Enforce unique names for Hubs. Under Hub Site Settings, site admins can rename the Hubs and use an existing name. This is problematic. Other sites that want to associate themselves with the Hub won't know which Hub to pick if they see more than one on the dropdown. It also presents other issues on reporting, etc.

  14. Navigation disappears when zooming on hub site

    On Chrome, when zoom set to 125%, all the navigation elements disappear from the page. If assets need to be removed, the navigation should definitely stay.

  16. Modern Search with Hub sites

    I'm currently working with a Global fortune 500 organization on migrating from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online. They are fully embracing the modern experiences, however we're finding certain aspects of the new experiences are confusing to end users, and a significant amount of change management is required to help them understand how it's functioning.

    SUGGESTION: The modern search experience's default text in the box is "Search Across Sites". What this is doing is actually searching across the sites configured in the current hub. What would be FAR more intuitive for end users is if the default text leveraged the name…

  17. Associate an individual site with a hub

    The use case is: one site collection for HR that at the top level is regional. Subsites would then be created for each country in the language of the country. Each country has a hub site with multiple site collections or sites associated with it. The HR site for that country would be one of those sites.
    The advantage is that HR (or Health & Safety) just stay in one place to maintain all their content.

  18. Security-trim hub site association dropdown list

    Currently if a site owner opens the Site Information flyout menu and opens the dropdown of Hub Sites available for association the user will see all Hub Sites in the tenant, even those the user has no permissions to view. This might reveal Hub Sites with confidential information (like R&D project names) the user otherwise would have never been able to see.

    Thus, the dropdown list showing the Hub Sites should only the Hub Sites the current user has (at least) "view" permissions on.

  20. Hub Sites doesn't support adding page title banner image.

    When adding a background image via "Change the Look," the page loads and the image flashes for one second in the title banner but then returns to a solid color. I would like to be able to add an image to the title banner as well as add an image or color to the page background.
