  1. Allow creation of headings & sections without links

    Currently only links with associated URL's can be added. It would be great to be able to add headings without associated links to assist with grouping

  3. Enable custom columns for modern pages

    Consistent with the classic "publishing" use case, would like the ability to add custom columns to modern site pages and make these columns editable in the page properties UI in the Site Pages document library.

    An extension of this would allow editing of the page properties on the page itself, similar to custom page layouts on classic publishing pages.

  4. Make the Delve organization chart available as a web part in regular sites.

    The current "organization browser" web part :
    The html view is just a list = not worth the time
    You need silverlight to get a visual presentation but:
    -nobody uses silverlight
    -silverlight isn't compatible with modern browsers (because no one uses it)
    The silverlight rendition in IE is appallingly ugly and isn't responsive.

    To have a functional attractive org chart seems like a no brainer for a service that claims to be "enterprise" ready. It's already built in Deleve so just make it available as a web part.

  5. Comment notifications

  6. Change page or news page authors

    please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

  7. Add News Article Metadata

    Add News Article Metadata

    When adding a news article (site page) on Communication Sites, through the new interface, it would be great to be able to populate additional metadata for the page.

    This could be along the lines of tagging pages with keywords for searching through articles or adding custom metadata.

    We’ve enabled custom metadata on pages and news in Sites last year and forgot to mark this complete.

    See the blog about it here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Structure-your-intranet-page-metadata-coming-to-SharePoint-in/ba-p/212555

    If you have additional asks, like the commentor asking for AND/OR control in news filtering, please search and find a suggestion to vote for, or open a new once.

  8. Hide page title in the Modern UI sites

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    モダン UI のサイトにおいて、ページのタイトル エリアを削除できるようにしたい

    Hide page title in the Modern UI sites


    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI のサイトにおいて、タイトルを入力しない場合でもタイトル エリアのスペースが残ってしまう。ページのタイトルを入力しない場合には、不要なスペースとなるためページのタイトル エリアを削除をできるよう機能拡充を要望します。

    In the Modern UI sites, even though no title is entered, page title area still remains.
    For removing this unnecessary space, in case there is no title entered, allow hiding the page title.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  9. Hub site navigation size

    Please make the navigation items of the Hub site navigation bigger. More in taste of the command bar for instance or the normal site navigation. It is to small at the moment and I get a lot of comments on this from clients.

    Thanks in advance,
    Robert Schouten

  11. Make Column formatting real easy and not with JSon

    Column formatting in SharePoint online.
    Why so complicated that you have to use Json.
    It doesn't fit in with the idea of modern pages and modern UI.
    Should be as simple as selecting a format....

  12. Conditional formatting system as in Excel

    Conditional formatting system as in Excel

    For Sharepoint to be customized easily for power users or advanced users without coding experience, JSON is a nightmare

    Users should have the choice to opt for graphic (excel type) or coding system to format each column

  13. Remove banner and header title from modern pages

    I would like to be able to remove the header from the new/modern "Pages". When I add a new page on SharePoint online now, I love the new page except for the top header image and text which takes up about a 3rd of the page. It's wasted space and not aesthetically pleasing.

    There are two requests in this one item. Based on the title, I’m going to mark this done with our work to add four layouts to the title area. One of these layouts is called “Plain” and shows only one line of page title, with no image.

    Many of the comments are asking for another great feature, not related to the page title area, but rather the site header. We’re also working on allowing options to resize this area. We’ve added a “compact view” for the site header, and have plans for an even more minimized view. If this feature is what you’d like to upvote, please add a new UserVoice request.

  14. Add managed metadata as filter option in Highlighted Content webpart in Modern Pages

    Filter options now only include title or content search, and managed properties.

    Adding managed metadata will improve this powerful webpart!

  15. Freeze Column Headers

    Would love to see the ability to freeze column headers at the top of the page when a user scrolls through a long list.

  16. Conditional Formatting for List fields.

    For status, I have a choice field in a list. In order to have it change colors, I have to produce some ridiculous JSON. Please have a look at SmartSheet. They have a completely simple way to enable conditional formatting.

  17. Title Banner on Modern Pages

    Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.

  18. Allow existing site pages to be added to the "News"

    I see these pages have a "Promoted State" and "FirstPublishedDate" that are used to determine if a page should be shown as News, but these properties cannot be changed. I want to be able to take an existing site page, and publish it as News.

    Alternatively, you could let me publish news to a library separate from the site pages so I'm not cluttering my wiki page library.

  19. Page templates for Modern Pages and Libraries that allow removal of elements and reuse

    Allow page authors to design page templates right in the Page Edit UI. Page edit would allow them to remove the Title Banner, Logo, left navigation, Edit link, New Link, Share Link, Search box and save the template for reuse.

    Page Templates would support web parts and new developed custom JS controls for things like custom navigation controls.

  20. Highlighted Content Web Part - Add AND OR for multiple filters

    Adding multiple filters defaults to OR. In other words adding multiple filters finds more items, rather than finding the intersection of the two filters. You need to be able to specify AND or OR between multiple filters in the web part.
