  1. Add the ability to copy a modern site page from one site to another

    You cannot copy a site page from on site to the site pages folder of another site. This is crazy. You can't restructure your pages into other sites. This prevents users from investing any effort in configuration that might change. It is extremely limiting.

  2. The document library WebPart should interpret .url files as links rather than downloads

    If someone creates a link file (.url) in modern document libraries and clicks on them, he is rerouted to the target url.
    If you embed a document library Web Part in a modern SharePoint page that points to the same document library and you click the .url file, a download will be triggered.
    However, the creators expect the URL files to behave in the same way as they do in the document library, so the user is redirected to the landing page.

  3. Month view for calendar on the page

    We would like the calendar display apps (events and group calendar) to allow a "month" view. We love the events parts and like that they link to a group calendar but would love to visualize this in a month or week format

  4. Too much white space

    There is too much white space on the new modern pages. I would rather see less white space and be able to adjust the spacing myself.

    Thank you for everyone’s feedback around the use of white space on modern pages. We are continually looking for ways to refine our designs and the use of white space is an important part of this. While the custom control of sections or the custom control of columns is not likely to happen, there could be other optimizations we will be thinking about in the future. Thank you.

  6. Please provide option to customize email templates

    Please provide option to customize email templates used to send notifications out of SharePoint online like "Send by Email" feature on modern UI pages, sharing notifications to other users. Most organizations do not allow users to install mobile apps. Providing information that is not approved will confuse the users and require constant training.

  7. Possibility to add AD Security groups in Office 365 Groups

    We like to manage authorisation on Modern SharePoint sites and MS-Teams using AD Security Groups, however it is not possible to add an AD Security Group into an Office 365 Group.
    Please add this option.

  8. Add Rating Settings to Document Libraries

    Add the "Rating Settings" to document libraries in Communication Sites. This exists on other doc libraries from other site templates. This would allow users to rate/like content and we could add a section of "most like documents" etc to the page.

  9. Open Adobe PDF in client application

    Office 365 / SharePoint online needs to support opening PDF documents in SharePoint directly to client application (Adobe Acrobat Pro/DC).

    As of this request, technical support has stated the only way to open PDF files in Acrobat is to download/save them.

    SharePoint On Premise has supported this feature for some time.

    Adobe PDF files are as common and Microsoft Office Suite documents and must be editable directly to/from SharePoint Online without the need to down/save edit, and upload which adds user overhead and lowers productivity.

  10. Add Article Tagging to the Modern News Feature

    It would be great to tag News posts/articles by category (e.g., training, motivational, announcement, etc.). Users could then refine by category to see all articles under that tag.

  12. Organize sharepoint sites

    I'd like to be able to organize the home page of sites i'm following to put the sites I use the most at the top, and group similar sites --for instance, I have several sites that are related to Human resources work, but I only use them occasionally and would like them to put them in a folder or notebook. Instead, they are all listed separately and I have to scroll through them to get to the ones I use more frequently. If there is already a way to do this, it is NOT apparent on the way my sharepoint…

  14. Drag and drop from SharePoint to desktop

    In the past, you were able to not only drag and drop files from your desktop to SharePoint, you could also drag and top files visvera from your SharePoint to your desktop. Unfortunately, this feature does not work any longer and was never intented to work based on the statement of the support specialist (Office365 support case: SRX616012694500709ID). I do not see a security issue here, because it only worked when the site was part of the trusted sites/intranet in the IE options. eRoom had this feature with a plug-in already back in 2002 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ERoom). It would be…

  15. A Total Revamp for Wikis

    Could we please have the ability to create Wikis in SharePoint that look like TechNet or Wikipedia? Please try to make things more simple. Do not over complicate it again.

    We know wikis are critical to sharing knowledge within your organization! We’ve been slowly building capabilities to share information more easily with our focus on modern pages and web parts. And with that work, we’ve been adding some of the capabilities we hear you want when people refer to wikis (easily add links to other pages or content, add metadata to each page to help people find and categorize it, roll-up content based on that metadata to show groupings of like content, etc.) But we know this isn’t all that’s required to have a great wiki. Many people also want wiki linking syntax e.g. [[]], we don’t yet support that, but we do support ctrl/command + K from the text web part to search and find pages on your site. We’ll be working on adding wiki syntax shortly. We know you also need easy roll-up pages, maybe an index page,…

  16. Header space

    The Groups logo should be a bit smaller, also too much vertical space is taken up in the header. This space can be better used for displaying more documents.

  19. Add Page Image and Rollup Image to columns that can have default values set

    Within: Pages > Document Library Setting > Column default value settings. Add the ability to set a default image for the Page Image and Rollup Image columns.
    We are trying to make it easy for users to quickly create a new page, but we require these fields to be populated so they get displayed correctly in Content by Search web parts. Everytime someone creates a new page they have to manually populate these image fields. It would be great if we could default them to some generic image and if they wanted to they could change them

  20. Default notification for lists and library's hitting the 5000 items limit

    At the moment there is no option to send a notification to an Office 365 Admin when a list or library is reaching the limit of 5000 items, it would be good if an out of the box option could be implemented to send this notification. e.g., a check-box option with an email field and the number of items to alert when reached, this would be great if it could be implemented across all site collections, so an Admin could set this up once and not worry about time consuming tasks of having to set up alerts or workflows to…
