    • Publish date format defaulting to US Format in Modern Pages for other regions

      The Published date on Modern Site Pages in Classic SharePoint sites is defaulting to US format (MM/DD/YYYY) although the tenant is in AU format (DD/MM/YYYY).

      The date format for other content in SharePoint Classic sites is MM/DD/YYYY which is same as Regional Settings.

      • Enable custom columns for modern pages

        Consistent with the classic "publishing" use case, would like the ability to add custom columns to modern site pages and make these columns editable in the page properties UI in the Site Pages document library.

        An extension of this would allow editing of the page properties on the page itself, similar to custom page layouts on classic publishing pages.

        • Change page or news page authors

          please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

          • A simple move/copy function between SharePoint Online Document libraries/folders/files

            SharePoint Online Document Libraries are missing possibly the two most basic and fundamental functions in the online portal:

            - A move/cut function, which is missing altogether, both for folders and files
            - A copy function, which although technically exists, is really over complicated for a function which has existed in a much simpler form in every document repository technology since the mid-1980s...

            Currently, in order to move a file or folder from within the online portal between different libraries or even different folders within the same library...well the function just doesn't exist. So users need to either sync the site…

            • Introduce markdown syntax for authoring content

              As a systems engineer/developer, I love the office 365/sharepoint platform. The one thing that's stops me from using it for everything is the lack of a productive way to generate content.

              Editing content in the UI is horrendously slow and painful, I just want to be able to author content quickly with markdown syntax, and publish my content/documentation quickly and easily.

              What's microsofts standpoint on this? Am i the first to request this? (i highly doubt i'm the only one who wants this...)

              Cheers,

              Morgan

              • Allow users to complete required metadata when uploading documents.

                Allow users to complete required metadata when uploading documents using the modern library view. Currently, users are not prompted to complete required fields or select a content type. As a result, the file is left in a checked-out state unless the user knows to edit the properties as a second step after uploading. This breaks sites that have structured metadata and/or specific content type usage requirements. SharePoint has always prompted for these required fields in the past, why remove that functionality?

                  • Copy document to same library

                    When using the "Copy" function in a library, it seems the intention is to create a copy of the document in another library.

                    But when users want to just create a copy of a document in the same location with a different file name, SharePoint throws an error.

                    Why can the copy function not simply allow a new copy in the same library with a different filename?

                    • Replace URL spaces with dashes instead of %20

                      Please change how SharePoint generates links to uploaded documents and site pages, so that URLs with spaces will replace %20 with a dash instead. Most CMS tools including blogs do when generating SEO friendly URLs. Links with %20 throughout are too difficult to read.

                      This feedback site is a perfect example:

                      • Regarding the library web part

                        When you add a document library in modern UI to a page as a Web Part, it seems to be showing the library web part in classic UI.
                        Is there any plan for the UI for library web parts to also become modern in the future?
                        We would like the library web part to also be shown in modern UI.

                        • Responsive design

                          The mobile views are not a solution, so many customers turn to custom design, but I would rather a responsive design be built into SharePoint.

                            Thank you for the suggestion! In the past several months, we have released a series of new interfaces for SharePoint Online, all of which are responsive (e.g, modern list, modern document library, modern team site home page, new site connect page, and modern site page, etc.). We also released mobile apps across iOS, Android, and UWP platforms. Hope these help you better work on mobile and on the go. Let us know if you have any new feedback/followups.

                                In the new web part image of the modern experience, it's impossible to add a link to the image. You should add this possibily, with an option to open "in / out the screen". Without that, it's now impossible now to put a "image / button" to open another page.

                                    • Fix top navigation for external users

                                      When sharing a Communication Site with external users (activated with Set-SPOSite -Identity https://... -SharingCapability ExternalUserSharingOnly), they dont see the top navigation unless they reduce their browser window size below 1024px. Below 1024px window size the burger menu for mobile viewing shows up.
                                      This is obviously a bug that requires immediate fixing.
                                      Please fix this asap.

                                      Thank you.

                                        • Communication Site: Themes and and branding options missing

                                          The current communication site template cannot be used for corporate wide communication because there are some important things missing.
                                          The overall design is only able to speak and represent only the Microsofot CI/CD. The missing branding and theming options makes it hard to be used in corporates because there is currently no way to apply corporate communication and design guidelines to the page. For user it makes it hard to identify the page as an official communication channel by the company and not by Microsoft.
