  1. Make rename in Teams reflect name changes in Sharepoint?

    When I rename a folder in the Teams app, the underlying folder is not renamed in sharepoint. This is most confusing.

  2. Set "Communication Site" as Root site collection

    For organisations that would like to use Communication site as their intranet it would be great if you could provision the root site as a Communication site, rather than a team site with a redirect to the communication site.

    There is a workaround as mentioned here but i'd prefer a Microsoft supported method https://hangconsult.com/2017/06/29/change-sharepoint-online-root-site-collection-to-use-the-new-communication-site-template/

  3. Enable scheduling of posts for the News Section

    In Sharepoint Communication Sites -


    • Allow the option to schedule posts for the News Section.


    • Allow the option to change the published date for posts in the News Section (e.g. if you need to back-date something).


    • Allow the option to change the publishing user on News posts (e.g if you're publishing something on behalf of a team member, but want their name displayed, not yours)

  4. Provide option to convert existing site to communication site

    For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.

    It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.

    It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.

    It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)

  5. Enable Audience targeting on modern page web parts

    It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages. Thanks

  7. Publish a modern page on a given time

    My users would like the ability to publish a modern page on a given time. Now it is only possible to publish a page directly. Make it possible to publish a modern page on time the user (optionally) enters in a datetime field.

  8. Ability to resize images on modern pages

    I'd like to be able to resize an image directly from the modern pages image webpart. This is really annoying that the pages are so easy to create but that you can't control the image size on the page.

    While we’ve added the ability to crop images and display specific aspect ratios (by clicking on the image); however, the column size (1/3, 1/2, 2/3, etc.) the page author has selected decides the size of all the web parts in that section.

    We are looking at ways to make this more flexible for images, without making it odd for other web parts, but haven’t finalized our approach yet.

  9. Multilingual Communication Sites

    Including support would be needed.

    My client has a legal requirement for using software, intranets that is Bi-Lingual.

    Communication sites are really great way to building new Intranets quickly but this is a critical feature for adoption.

    We are happy to share that we are actively working on it. We will be sharing more details about the plans at the SharePoint conference in Vegas.

    Here is the MS road map item

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=50217

    Here’s the session we’ll share more details.

  10. Improve Highlighted content web part to support custom content types and their custom columns

    I'd like to show users documents from an another site (different o365 group site). I came across the Highlighted content web part which is a very flexible and potentially useful function. However I can not filter my documents with it as it
    1 does not show custom content type at the type or document type filters (even though my content type is directly inheriting Document), and does not lists my documents either (basically being Documents because of the inheritance)
    2 can not select custom columns of my content type at the managed property filter.

    As of March 2019, this feature should be available to 50% of users in Targeted Release. The rollout to all users is continuing, but there are several features included together in this one and we’ve paused the rollout a few times to accomodate changes based on feedback to the other features. New ETA for reaching all users is April 2019.

    Note this feature will only apply to modern doclib and list UX in SharePoint Online

  13. Enable renaming the SPO tenant domain

    Currently the site collection URLs are fixed as https://tenant.sharepoint.com and cannot be changed. This does not fit with flexible cloud-based solutions - business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, rebranding etc). While it may not be possible to change it so that entirely custom domains are used (eg contoso.com, instead of sharepoint.com), it must be possible to allow the sub-domain to be changed (eg. newtenant.sharepoint.com)? Please?

    Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, Sharepoint and Onedrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.

    Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. We plan to increase availability to this feature as we continue improving the tech, and ensuring a smooth experience across Office 365 following the URL changes in SharePoint Online.

  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. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Column totals missing in modern list views

    Column totals missing in modern list views.

    This is an often used function, and the workaround to set the list back to classic will only be a temporary solution.

    As of March 2019 this feature is available to all users of the list/library webparts on modern publishing pages, and to 50% of First Release users in the full page lists/library app. We are continuing to roll this out to all users, but it’s part of a collection of other features, and we have paused rollout a few times to address requests and changes in those other features.

    Note this feature is available only in SharePoint Online

  19. Prioritize large list management in SharePoint Online

    Large list management has to become a priority. Even with the most thought out and careful planning, inevitably something will come up and you need to make a change to a list or library. Once that goes over 5,000 items, it becomes impossible to do anything management related to the list, which actually hinders it's use. Users can continually add files, but you can't do anything to help them.

    This has to be addressed in some fashion, whether it is allowing APIs like REST and CSOM to bypass this restriction so they can perform basic administrative operations or giving us…

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

    We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…

  20. Possibility to set warnings on the new Sharepoint news from sites page

    It would be great to have the option to receive notifications on the new Sharepoint "News from sites" page so we’d be able to manage notifications on a per site basis through the individual sharepoint sites.
