  3. Pls create zones in the toolbox on modern pages to discern between the oob responsive webparts and the legacy add-ins (app parts) introduced

    You just introduced the ability on modern pages to show add-ins and app parts. Ok, great thing so far, but pls put a kind of delimitier in the toolbox of the modern pages between the oob responsive new modern webparts and the "legacy" add-ins (app parts). Without such delimiter (be it a line or anything) it is really not easily discernable for the users creating content on a page which webpart will be responsive oob and which may be a problem on small devices. To really get the mobile first strategy going, you need to make sure it is easy…

  4. "Modern" Libraries Should Respect Navigation Settings

    When in the "modern" pages, we see an entirely different set of navigation options in the top nav than when we are in "classic" SharePoint. These pages should all respect the same navigation settings.

  6. Quick Links Web Part

    For quick links web part, I would love to be able to change the formatting - like tiles instead of these large cards, or shrink the size to fit many more cards than what is currently available

  7. Allow list web parts on modern pages

    Modern pages allow the addition of news, links, activity, etc., but there is no option to display list view web parts. We use lists constantly and rely on list view web parts. Specifically, I would like to continue using the very cool "Promoted Links" list in new sites and use the standard web part for that list. The tiles have been very popular for key navigation elements for a site, and I don't want to lose that when moving to modern pages/sites.

  8. Make it possible to resize webparts and put them next to eachother

    In modern webpages there is not so much control to create a custom look and feel for sharepointpages. For example you can't move webparts next to eachother, can't resize webparts, can't make the header less bulky... It would be great to have more control.

  10. Optimize Access Request Settings for site owners

    Three requested updates to significantly improve the Access Request process:

    1) Allow multiple users to receive access requests

    Access requests (Site Settings > Site Permission > Access Request Settings) can be sent to anyone with an email address, but it has three critical downsides: 1) you are limited to one email recipient; 2) the field does not accept SharePoint groups; and 3) it’s prone to misspellings of email addresses since the field is not a people picker.

    One of the most extreme examples of how this is broken: My company’s CEO needs access to a file s/he has a link…

  11. Modified dates in Site Contents should reflect content changes, not system changes

    Looking at the modified values in Site Contents has always been a quick way to recognize where activity has occurred - if it has. Without running any code we can quickly see if a site has been used recently. (It was easier to eyeball this in SharePoint 2007 in the vertical listing than it is in SharePoint 2013+, but that's a different UI issue - tiles aren't helpful for every use case.)

    For months now, a list no one has touched for over a year might say "Modified 23 hours ago". It seems as though lists and libraries are being…

    Thanks for this feedback. This is an example of how User Voice and Twitter brought this to our attention.

    We have rolled out a fix to all of production for this issue. Going forward, Site Content’s dates will only update based upon real user behavior, not system changes.

    It’s worth noting that this is a go-forward fix – we did not feel it right to go back and change existing dates.

    Please let us know if you see any dates update that are unexpected.

  12. Webpart documenten ook in nieuwe look&feel Modern documentlibrary

    In SharePoint kun je een webpart documenten toevoegen aan de pagina. Zou deze ook in de nieuwe look&feel kunnen worden geplaatst. Net als je in de documentenbibliotheek zelf ervaart.

  13. Fix: Modern Page ~ Highlighted Content Section ~ layout Cards

    I have a Modern Page, that has a Highlighted Content Section Type Videos. It has a filter to show only Videos from a certain Channel that has been created. If the layout is List it will redirect to the actual video player on the Video Channel and play from there, which is expect.

    If the layout is Cards the Click event initiates a download of the video causing a massive download and a player needed instead of playing from the online video channel player.

  14. Managed Navigation for new Document Library Experience

    Currently the new document library experience does not support Managed Navigation. It would be great to have this as currently using the structured navigation seems buggy in the new experience. Specifically, it ignores the "hidden" attribute of structured navigation which can make for some large menus. We love the new experience and are hoping to train users up and roll it out however we need to get navigation right before we can do this.

    Thank you for the feedback requesting support for classic publishing on modern pages in team sites. We have rolled out an update that will now correctly render your structured or managed navigation links on modern pages in classic team sites.

    Please see the help article (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Customize-the-navigation-on-your-team-site-3cd61ae7-a9ed-4e1e-bf6d-4655f0bf25ca?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US) for more details – or visit the MS Tech Community (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/UPDATE-Support-for-Structured-Managed-Navigation-enabled-on/m-p/57384) to share any comments/questions.

  16. enable embedding public videos from Facebook

    I'm trying to embed a public video from Facebook on to the new SitePage in a team site. The link to a Facebook video should be enough in my opinion. Event with the correct iFrame-code I cannot embed the video on the new SitePage embed code snippet.

  17. External Folder Sharing with without sign-in

    Number 1 limitation is the fact that we cannot share folders without requiring users to sign-in. Adoption of this product will be limited without this feature.

  18. Show me all my followed sites in one place

    I'm looking at the new SharePoint page (formerly Sites) and I can't see an way of viewing at the full set of sites that I'm following. There are five of the sites I'm "Following" in the Sidebar and I can see some of these (and others) that I'm following on the main page (solid stars) under "Frequent". There doesn't seem to be a way of just listing all the sites that I'm following, which I could do before.

    Just a brief update – this is a multi-phase fix. We have amended support in modern site header/pages for structured navigation, but if you are using managed navigation (via enabling publishing feature) support for this is still in the works. We are actively working on supporting this data provider and plan to have a fix soon.

    We’re going to resolve this idea – to track the remaining publishing work see/subscribe to: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/admin/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/14749329-managed-navigation-for-new-document-library-experi

  20. Top navigation on the new document library look

    It is crucial for many of our customers that they do not get their top-menu in SharePoint removed when accessing document libraries (the new OneDrive for Business look). Please make it possible to activate this so the users are not "lost" in their own intranet.
