I heard that in SharePoint 2016 there was NOT going to be any SharePoint Designer! PLEASE! I use it almost daily to provide simple workflows such as email to colleagues and other options that "Out of the Box" functionality can not allow and where InfoPath does not provide "If Then" statements for the ability to create Calendar items if conditions are met.17 votesboom! it's done · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
There is no new version of SharePoint Designer, but the 2013 version will continue to work with SharePoint 2016. We’re not taking it away, we’re just not investing more in SharePoint Designer
In SharePoint Online, the site settings option is missing in all the modern pages. It looks weird for all the users as they don't find the direct option to access the site settings page from the landing page of the site. It would be great if you include the site settings option in the modern pages/sites.16 votesboom! it's done · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (firstname.lastname@example.org, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
The site settings link is now in the gear dropdown on any modern page.

Hi everyone, we added this capability earlier this spring! Hope it helps!
I'm looking at the new SharePoint page (formerly Sites) and I can't see an way of viewing at the full set of sites that I'm following. There are five of the sites I'm "Following" in the Sidebar and I can see some of these (and others) that I'm following on the main page (solid stars) under "Frequent". There doesn't seem to be a way of just listing all the sites that I'm following, which I could do before.16 votes
You can see the full set of sites you are following by clicking “see all” under the list of 5 followed sites
I would like to see the option to view more than 4 news items in the news web part13 votes
check out the new Hub News layout for the news webpart, https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Use-the-News-web-part-on-a-SharePoint-page-C2DCEE50-F5D7-434B-8CB9-A7FEEFD9F165.
This is great but the option to use the older library by default should be available. The admin should be able to select the "one drive" view or the SharePoint view. It also should reflect the branding applied to the site in this version it seems that the user went to other site. The navigation from SharePoint should be always visible.13 votes
Classic view is going nowhere anytime soon. Library owners and administrators will be able to choose the classic or the new experience. More information:

Create a webpart for modern pages where users can rate the page and metadata about the page is shown
Pages that contain an internal knowledge base it would be nice to show some metadata, like an info Square, where it can show metadata (what process, Customer, Product it applies to) and the rating. Also let the reader rate the page.9 votes
We’ve added the ability to ‘like’ a page and we’ve also shipped a webpart for displaying page metadata!
Pls create zones in the toolbox on modern pages to discern between the oob responsive webparts and the legacy add-ins (app parts) introduced
You just introduced the ability on modern pages to show add-ins and app parts. Ok, great thing so far, but pls put a kind of delimitier in the toolbox of the modern pages between the oob responsive new modern webparts and the "legacy" add-ins (app parts). Without such delimiter (be it a line or anything) it is really not easily discernable for the users creating content on a page which webpart will be responsive oob and which may be a problem on small devices. To really get the mobile first strategy going, you need to make sure it is easy for content managers, users etc. to know which webparts are oob responsive and which may prove difficult. As an example, non responsive apps from the SP store integrate in the same "layer/zone" as the oob webparts in the toolbox. This is really horrible user experience.

We’ve rolled out the large toolbox to First Release users this week. AppParts (components of add-ins) show up in the Other section, while other modern web parts are categorized. All of these tools are of course easily accessible via search.
Please provide information on what image sizes and ratios will fit best on the Hero Web parts panes.6 votes
- Web part is set to fit screen width (full-bleed), and height scaled accordingly to follow 8:3 ratio
- Images inside scales accordingly to follow the 4:3 ratio
- Individually layer scales to 8:3 ratio
- Image scales close to 9:16 ratio
The ‘Site Contents’ page (_layouts/15/viewlsts.aspx) is not user friendly when you have a lot of lists and apps. Make subdivisions for libraries, lists, apps,… like SharePoint 2010. Also remove the tiles. It is too overwhelming.6 votes
We agree – we’re rolling out a refreshed page design that removes the tiles and makes the experience easier to view and navigate. We’re also including some preliminary analytics to help site owners and members understand site activity and what content is being read. We’re just rolling out to First Release this month, so if you don’t see the experience yet, you can get more information here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/The-SharePoint-Site-Contents-page-ba495c1e-00f4-475d-97c7-b518d546566b?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
You guys really ought to license the Office Web apps as part of SharePoint without needing to setup individual user licenses. My company just moved over our intranet to SharePoint and I tried editing a spreadsheet in the browser from a computer that does not have a modern version of Excel installed and it says Web apps is not licensed. You are bundling web apps with OneDrive and with your Office365 subscribers. SharePoint is already expensive enough to not include this for free.6 votes
Love the videos!4 votes
For quick links web part, I would love to be able to change the formatting - like tiles instead of these large cards, or shrink the size to fit many more cards than what is currently available4 votes
We added an ability to pick a smaller layout, or choose cards. You also have the option to show an icon or image, or just the text.
In modern webpages there is not so much control to create a custom look and feel for sharepointpages. For example you can't move webparts next to eachother, can't resize webparts, can't make the header less bulky... It would be great to have more control.4 votes
there is no way to add app part like the one we had earlier.
Way to navigate to classic mode is missing.4 votes
We actually just announced support for Add-ins (and app parts) working on modern pages and shown in the toolbox, out to tenant admins yesterday. It’s been in First Release for a month or so.
I'm trying to embed a public video from Facebook on to the new SitePage in a team site. The link to a Facebook video should be enough in my opinion. Event with the correct iFrame-code I cannot embed the video on the new SitePage embed code snippet.4 votes
Each SharePoint site has an access list (HTML Field Security), controlled by your tenant admin, listing which websites can be embedded within SharePoint. Likely facebook isn’t on the access list for your site. Facebook does support oembed, so once it’s access listed, the URL of the video should be sufficient to embed it.
You cannot currently load or set the ThemedCssFolderUrl property of the Web object in CSOM. After applying a theme (for example, using the sample PnP code), returning to the app from the newly-themed site shows that the SP.UI chrome control cannot find what it needs to properly display. We need a way to ensure that a new theme that is deployed from the app can set this value so that when returning to the app afterwards the chrome control can continue to display properly.4 votes
We released this property as part of the November 2016 SharePoint Online CSOM NuGet package release. Thanks for your input and hopefully you’ll find the enhancement useful.

How to add List webpart on the modern site of SharePoint.3 votes
We have a list web part available for use on modern pages. We’re continuing to improve it over time with requested capabilities.
Traditional calendars are too clunky and users find it difficult to set up a team calendar on their Team Sites - plus there is no intuitive way to embed these in a modern page.
It would be very useful to have a simple Calendar web part - similar to the Events web part - that could be added to a modern page quickly, so that everyone can see each others' activity and schedule team meetings and events more easily.2 votes
We’ve recently rolled out a group calendar web part that allows you to pull in calendar info from your team calendar.
At the moment it doesn’t allow you to schedule team meetings, but we’ll likely not invest on adding that to SharePoint as there are so many other ways to create team calendar events (Outlook, Teams, Skype, etc.) If you feel you need that directly in SharePoint, please tell us more.
