When I rename a folder in the Teams app, the underlying folder is not renamed in sharepoint. This is most confusing.1,715 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Thanks for flagging this one — we are working jointly with MS Teams on a solution for keeping consistency when you rename a channel in Teams. Don’t have an ETA to share yet.
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/854 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (firstname.lastname@example.org, Microsoft SharePoint) responded

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. Thanks571 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We’re working on this! The first web part we’re enabling it on is the News web part, followed by the highlighted content and events web parts. We’d love to hear about other audience targeting scenarios you’d like us to enable. Thanks!
We love the new hub site feature, and the roll ups for sites and highlighted content. What we really need is a roll up web part for events, so that all event calendars accross the hub can show on one webpart.
Uses for this would be to show all events, company wide, happening this week.11 votes
Please remove the restriction for 50 hub sites per tenant (or at least increase it to 500 sites) as there could be many scenarios where one would need more than 50 hub sites particularly the large / multinational enterprise/organisations. For example, Project Management Office (PMO) used to create subsites for a large projects to manage different streams within a single project and would now create Office 365 Groups and I can see PMO could easily use 10 - 20 hub sites.67 votes
In August we increased the limit from 50 to 100. We’re working on increasing it further.
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.341 votes
Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.
It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.
Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.868 votes
There is too little control of a Modern Page. You can't control text size and coloring, you have limited format control, and most of all you can't *edit source*. I used this to drop in things like Image Maps or other HTML that there was no way to add in.133 votes
We have added options to the rich text editor to change the color and size of text on the page already.
We are working right now to enable on-page anchors.
We won’t be adding a way to edit page source, nor embed arbitrary HTML or tags like in the previous content or script editor web parts.
Hi! It would be great if you could chose to have the hero web part in lesser height.94 votes
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.173 votes
Categorize and filter news articles on new publishing site
Ability to select category (or multiple) for a news article when you create it. Plus the ability to filter the news widget by category.
Exactly like you can for events. Plus the ability to select multiple categories if you choose.136 votes
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)5 votes
We’re working on a scheduling feature now for pages and news posts.
You can now set the author of a news post (or page) to another team member with our enhancements to title area on pages that rolled out in December 2018.
Would love to see the ability to freeze column headers at the top of the page when a user scrolls through a long list.917 votes
It has taken us longer than we expected, but the feature is in development and as noted in comments was demo’d at Ignite 2018. We expect to start rolling out by January 2019.
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.657 votes
We’ve recently released new Title area layout options for modern pages which will allow you to make the title area both much smaller, or showing a larger image. This does not impact the Site header above the pages. However we are also working on other options for different Site header sizes also.
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.3,170 votes
Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now.
Corporate lifecycle is a real and constant pressure in business, often resulting in a need to rename the Office 365 Tenant. To that end we are working on the solution to change the SharePoint domain URL (contoso.sharepoint.com renamed to fabrikam.sharepoint.com). This capability will also then enable the renaming of an individual site collection (contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/abc to contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/xyz).
While we don’t have an estimated delivery date to share at this time, we’ll update your suggestion with details as they become available.

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.42 votes
Filter options now only include title or content search, and managed properties.
Adding managed metadata will improve this powerful webpart!76 votes
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.170 votes
We are working on a solution to save a modern page as a page template. This list of available templates will be shown to users when they click New > Page or New > News. It will include some out of the box templates from Microsoft and any templates saved to the site.
This does not affect the Site header, navigation, search box, command bar, or other site elements.
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.423 votes
We are working hard on this capability now. We will launch it early next year.
