  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.

    • 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/

      • 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

        • Events Roll Up Web Part on Hub Site

          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.

          • Remove restriction for 50 hub sites (or increase it to 500 sites)

            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.

            • 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.

              • Stop opening links in new tab in modern pages

                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.

                • Features to Edit Modern Pages

                  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.

                  • Smaller hero web part

                    Hi! It would be great if you could chose to have the hero web part in lesser height.

                    • Add News Article Metadata

                      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.

                        • 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)

                              • Enable renaming the site collection URLs

                                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.

                                  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.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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!

                                    • Page templates for Modern Pages and Libraries that allow removal of elements and reuse

                                      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.

                                      • 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.
