  1. 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.

        • Smaller hero web part

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

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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

                      • 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!

                            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.

                              We are using the SharePoint Online Modern News feature. We love it. I've got the SharePoint Online Android app installed on my smartphone. I follow a few sites. I would like that the app sends me a push notification message on my phone for all new news articles that exist on sites that I follow. Would be so nice!!! Thanks guys!!

                                  We are rolling out the ability to organize news posts and essentially pin items in the order you want to display in the news web part. You can drag and drop to add and rearrange posts. Depending on the news web part layout option you use, the number of “pinned” posts will vary and you can control the number as well.

                                  This will be rolling out to the service shortly.

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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…

                                        • Freeze Column Headers

                                          Would love to see the ability to freeze column headers at the top of the page when a user scrolls through a long list.
