  1. Regarding the library web part

    When you add a document library in modern UI to a page as a Web Part, it seems to be showing the library web part in classic UI.
    Is there any plan for the UI for library web parts to also become modern in the future?

    We would like the library web part to also be shown in modern UI.

  2. Responsive design

    The mobile views are not a solution, so many customers turn to custom design, but I would rather a responsive design be built into SharePoint.

    Thank you for the suggestion! In the past several months, we have released a series of new interfaces for SharePoint Online, all of which are responsive (e.g, modern list, modern document library, modern team site home page, new site connect page, and modern site page, etc.). We also released mobile apps across iOS, Android, and UWP platforms. Hope these help you better work on mobile and on the go. Let us know if you have any new feedback/followups.

  3. Cross site collection navigation

    Current term set based solution is not usable at all in real life multi site collection scenarios.

  4. Remove the limit (5,000 items) on SharePoint Document Library Syncing

    The sync limit does not match OneDrive for Business, and adds complexity to the end user experience, administration and architecture of SharePoint. Please remove this sync limit.

    We’ve recently rolled out support for syncing your Team sites (including O365 Groups) and shared OneDrive for Business folders with our OneDrive sync client. You can read more here: https://blogs.office.com/2017/01/24/onedrive-brings-new-file-collaboration-and-management-features-to-the-enterprise/ This includes no longer being limited to 5,000 files in a team site, on your PC or Mac. Thanks!

  5. Make the "(+) new document" button in doclib match available ContentTypes in the New button from Ribbon.

    Please make the "(+) new document" button from the web part and document libraries match available CTs as the ones available under the "New" button from the Ribbon. Please also include "Document sets" in the available CTs :)

    When adding a news article, it would be great to have the option of having a conversation or chat underneath when you post. Thanks!

  9. Add a link to a image in the Webpart image

    In the new web part image of the modern experience, it's impossible to add a link to the image. You should add this possibily, with an option to open "in / out the screen". Without that, it's now impossible now to put a "image / button" to open another page.

  12. Fix top navigation for external users

    When sharing a Communication Site with external users (activated with Set-SPOSite -Identity https://... -SharingCapability ExternalUserSharingOnly), they dont see the top navigation unless they reduce their browser window size below 1024px. Below 1024px window size the burger menu for mobile viewing shows up.
    This is obviously a bug that requires immediate fixing.
    Please fix this asap.

  14. Communication Site: Themes and and branding options missing

    The current communication site template cannot be used for corporate wide communication because there are some important things missing.
    The overall design is only able to speak and represent only the Microsofot CI/CD. The missing branding and theming options makes it hard to be used in corporates because there is currently no way to apply corporate communication and design guidelines to the page. For user it makes it hard to identify the page as an official communication channel by the company and not by Microsoft.

    In addition not even well known and supported customisations through Themes is possible at the…

  15. Connected Web Parts in Modern Pages

    Whilst the modern pages are improving all the time, with new web parts and layouts, I would like to see web part connections being made available in modern pages. This is extremely useful, especially when creating dashboard pages.

  16. Create a webpart for modern pages where users can rate the page and metadata about the page is shown

    Pages that contain an internal knowledge base it would be nice to show some metadata, like an info Square, where it can show metadata (what process, Customer, Product it applies to) and the rating. Also let the reader rate the page.

  18. Revamp team calendars

    Traditional calendars are too clunky and users find it difficult to set up a team calendar on their Team Sites - plus there is no intuitive way to embed these in a modern page.

    It would be very useful to have a simple Calendar web part - similar to the Events web part - that could be added to a modern page quickly, so that everyone can see each others' activity and schedule team meetings and events more easily.

    We’ve recently rolled out a group calendar web part that allows you to pull in calendar info from your team calendar.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/New-Group-calendar-web-part-rolling-out-now/td-p/99819

    At the moment it doesn’t allow you to schedule team meetings, but we’ll likely not invest on adding that to SharePoint as there are so many other ways to create team calendar events (Outlook, Teams, Skype, etc.) If you feel you need that directly in SharePoint, please tell us more.

  20. Site Settings option missing in the Modern pages

    In SharePoint Online, the site settings option is missing in all the modern pages. It looks weird for all the users as they don't find the direct option to access the site settings page from the landing page of the site. It would be great if you include the site settings option in the modern pages/sites.
