Like classic SharePoint publishing pages, it would be good to include possibility to restrict updates to the section layout and web part properties of a modern page created from a page templates.
The need is to allow lock down of advanced editing features like add / remove sections, add / remove web parts, change placement of web parts on such modern pages and help mimic features of the classic publishing layout.
The business case driving this change is to bring uniformity to page content created from specific page templates.107 votesnot in our plans right now · AdminSharePoint Sites & Collaboration (Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Thank you for submitting this suggestion and voting on it. While we don’t have any plans at this time to add restrictions to page templates, this is something we’ll think about as we move forward and prioritize items for our future roadmap. Thank you.
I would love to see a webpart that would make it easy to add a discussion board. Yammer is an option but makes it hard to monitor and get notification if you need to watch for multiple discussions.108 votesnot in our plans right now · AdminSharePoint Sites & Collaboration (Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Thank you for the feedback. Adding a discussion board webpart is not in our plans right now. However, we are continuing to work with the Yammer team to improve the Yammer webpart, and appreciate any suggestions.
The new event web part in SPO should support recurring events for Birthdays etc. We use it to keep track of birthdays in our office, but the new web-part does not support recurring events.146 votesnot in our plans right now · AdminSharePoint Sites & Collaboration (Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Thank you for the feedback! We are not planning on adding support recurring events at this time but we will keep it in mind in the future when we look at improving the overall event story on SharePoint.
It would be nice to have the option to place a web part on a modern page and add HTML to it. We don't always want to jump to SPFx for something simple. It would help add some flexibility to the modern pages.260 votes
Thank you for the feedback. Creating a Modern Content Editor Web part is not in our plans right now
It would be great to have the possibility to remove or deactivate certain standard client webparts like the "yammer feed".
Many companies don't even use yammer and it would just confuse users. Or at least have the possibility that the yammer client side webpart is only shown, when yammer is activated for the tenant.

While we do support disabling non Microsoft services (e.g. Amazon Kindle, Twitter, YouTube) in the toolbox, we don’t support disabling Microsoft services. If these services can be disabled at the tenant level, they should be automatically hidden from the toolbox.
for disabling third party services, see Set-SPOTenant, using the parameter DisabledWebPartIds.

I would like to be able to add recurring events and to duplicate events in the event calendar module!463 votesnot in our plans right now · AdminSites Product Team (Product Owner, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We aren’t currently working on adding recurring events support to the Events web part. As a number of commentors have suggested, Group calendars do a great job with recurring events and are a great way to show them on your modern pages.
While I love being able to create events easily in SP Communication sites (and love that users can add them to their calendars), not having the ability to have users register for limited capacity events means we have to duplicate the information or abandon the events in SP all together.167 votes
Thank you for everyone’s feedback. We are not planning on adding support for event registration at this time but we will keep it in mind in the future when we look at improving the overall event story on SharePoint.
Please let us define a custom background color for a Section on the page.
It would allow us to give more "rhythm" to the page content and highlight some content on the page.
For example the https://dev.office.com/ site uses a light blue "section background color" to separate the "getting started"-links from rest of the content.151 votesnot in our plans right now · AdminSites Product Team (Product Owner, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Today modern pages support picking one of three colors derived from the site theme (soft, neautral, strong). We likely won’t be investing in the option to add arbitrary other colors as a section background, violating the site’s theme. For the other suggestions, please open a unique uservoice suggestion (e.g. support section background images)
Modern pages, lists and libraries look great and all fit together nicely.
The other main thing we use here is the calendars which are still looking classic, which means inconsistencies in the quick links layout as well as other things which viewing a calendar.
I can't find anything about when Calendars are going to be modernized.
Hopefully soon!515 votesnot in our plans right now · AdminSites Product Team (Product Owner, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
Thank you for submitting this suggestion and voting on it. We have two events/calendar solutions in modern pages today. The events web part has card based event tiles, powered by events lists. You can roll-up events from multiple sites into one page, but there isn’t currently a wall calendar view.
Alternatively you can select to leverage a group calendar, and pull all of your events (including recurring events) from Exchange. This too is a compact card based view.
While we understand a wall calendar view is desirable, we’re not working on it at this time.
Make the calendar webpart so it can fully overlay any number of calendars from Exchange, and also make them writable. For example have a room calendar in Exchange where non Exchange users can see the calendar and even make a reservation.109 votes
Thank you for the feedback. A fully integrated overlay calendar for Exchange is not in our plans right now
