  1. Anchor Links or Collapsing Sections

    It would be helpful to have sections that collapse, tabs, or anchor links for pages that contain lots of information. Word allows you to create bookmarks, and OneNote allows you to create tabs to easily navigate lots of information on a given topic. It would be great if you had the same flexibility with a page in SharePoint

  2. Allow Javascript customization and CSS branding/theming in the new Document Library Experience

    Please allow javascript customization and css branding/theming in the new document library experience. A custom cross-site navigation is one example that is used by many customers. Also many customers want their intranet branded in a different color but office ui fabric blue.
    JSLink is also used very often. And don't Forget about all the third-party forms solution provider like Nintex and others.
    The new experience provides many advantages, but without customizations it is just not usable for larger intranets anymore.

  3. 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:

  4. 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 just to…

  5. Title Banner on Modern Pages

    Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.

  6. 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.

  7. Cross site collection navigation

    Current term set based solution is not usable at all in real life multi site collection scenarios.

  8. A Full Featured Forms Editor to replace InfoPath

    So Infopath 2013 is supported in 2016, but SharePoint really needs a full modern full-featured forms editor. FoSL looks promising but the functionality is not clear at this time.

  9. Remove the limit (5,000 items) on SharePoint Document Library Syncing

    The sync limit does not match OneDrive for Business, and adds complexity to the end user experience, administration and architecture of SharePoint. Please remove this sync limit.

    We’ve recently rolled out support for syncing your Team sites (including O365 Groups) and shared OneDrive for Business folders with our OneDrive sync client. You can read more here: https://blogs.office.com/2017/01/24/onedrive-brings-new-file-collaboration-and-management-features-to-the-enterprise/ This includes no longer being limited to 5,000 files in a team site, on your PC or Mac. Thanks!

  10. Dynamic Column width for default Title column in SharePoint List

    Currently the default "Title" column does not have an adjustable width in the new modern SharePoint view only, classic view is unaffected.

    So if the column contains 1 row and the cell contains very little text the column width will not adjust to fit the width of the text and leave a large empty space, pushing adjacent columns to the right off the screen.

  11. Page Layouts in Modern Pages

    The modern pages are great, however there should be more flexibility such as being able to select different page layouts and would take the best from the old classic pages and incorporating with the new modern look and feel.

  12. Remove banner and header title from modern pages

    I would like to be able to remove the header from the new/modern "Pages". When I add a new page on SharePoint online now, I love the new page except for the top header image and text which takes up about a 3rd of the page. It's wasted space and not aesthetically pleasing.

    There are two requests in this one item. Based on the title, I’m going to mark this done with our work to add four layouts to the title area. One of these layouts is called “Plain” and shows only one line of page title, with no image.

    Many of the comments are asking for another great feature, not related to the page title area, but rather the site header. We’re also working on allowing options to resize this area. We’ve added a “compact view” for the site header, and have plans for an even more minimized view. If this feature is what you’d like to upvote, please add a new UserVoice request.

  13. Optimize Access Request Settings for site owners

    Three requested updates to significantly improve the Access Request process:

    1) Allow multiple users to receive access requests

    Access requests (Site Settings > Site Permission > Access Request Settings) can be sent to anyone with an email address, but it has three critical downsides: 1) you are limited to one email recipient; 2) the field does not accept SharePoint groups; and 3) it’s prone to misspellings of email addresses since the field is not a people picker.

    One of the most extreme examples of how this is broken: My company’s CEO needs access to a file s/he has a link…

  15. Managed Navigation for new Document Library Experience

    Currently the new document library experience does not support Managed Navigation. It would be great to have this as currently using the structured navigation seems buggy in the new experience. Specifically, it ignores the "hidden" attribute of structured navigation which can make for some large menus. We love the new experience and are hoping to train users up and roll it out however we need to get navigation right before we can do this.

    Thank you for the feedback requesting support for classic publishing on modern pages in team sites. We have rolled out an update that will now correctly render your structured or managed navigation links on modern pages in classic team sites.

    Please see the help article (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Customize-the-navigation-on-your-team-site-3cd61ae7-a9ed-4e1e-bf6d-4655f0bf25ca?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US) for more details – or visit the MS Tech Community (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/UPDATE-Support-for-Structured-Managed-Navigation-enabled-on/m-p/57384) to share any comments/questions.

  16. Add a link to a image in the Webpart image

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    We’ve enabled custom metadata on pages and news in Sites last year and forgot to mark this complete.

  20. 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.

    As we mentioned in the last update, we’re working on anchor linking for modern pages, and it should be available shortly. We’ll clear up the m365 Roadmap to ensure that gets added.

    See this suggestion:
    https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/33253909-anchor-links-or-collapsing-sections

    Text formatting is already available in the rich text editor on modern pages.

    To create an image map you could use the image web part for a single link, but to make multiple links across different parts of the image, you’d need to leverage a web part designed to do that. There are partners and potentially open source web parts to create Image Maps.

    If you have other suggestions (e.g. font selection), please search and vote for those, or open a new suggestion. Thank you.
