  1. Modern calendars

    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!

    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.

  2. Recurring Events

    I would like to be able to add recurring events and to duplicate events in the event calendar module!

  3. Add customization possibility to the new SharePoint Home page

    Based on the new feature being now rolled out at large: https://blogs.office.com/2016/05/04/sharepoint-the-mobile-and-intelligent-intranet/

    The new SharePoint Home page (landing page) is cool and we really appreciate the new look and feel.

    The only issue is that we can not customize that Home page and place the different items based on our priority!
    Based on what we have now:

    Links
    Followed Sites
    Recents
    Suggested

    It would be very interesting if we could place the LINKS on the right followed by the Followed sites!

    Then we would have the Recents and Suggested sites on the left menu.

    Basically being able to move parts…

  5. Modern Content Editor Web Part

    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.

  6. Ability to hide the Hub Site navigation

    Add the ability to hide the hub site navigation via some setting or powershell.

    The hub site navigation is a list of static links with no security trimming and no way to target an audience. With the introduction of SharePoint SPFx extensions we have the ability to create a header on top of the page. The most common usecase in this scenario is to create a customized menu. However if hub sites are used and you need a customized menu you will have two menu's at the top.

    Here are a few business scenario's for a customized menu

    We don’t intend to support hiding hub navigation per site, however there are a few key solutions you can use (now and soon):

    Audience targeting in navigation https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/target-navigation-news-and-files-to-specific-audiences-33d84cb6-14ed-4e53-a426-74c38ea32293

    We’re working on delivering global navigation, you can read more about it in this blog post: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-sharepoint-blog/innovations-for-workplace-communications-and-employee-engagement/ba-p/1696149

  7. Add event registration to Communication Sites

    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.

  8. All classic web parts for Modern Team Sites

    Prior to modern pages, we had many web parts to choose from in SharePoint (Content Search, Search Box, Search Results, Content Editor Web Part, etc.). Some of the modern web parts are cool, but the Content Search, Search Box, Search Results, Content Editor Web Part are HUGELY important and widely used. The search web parts mentioned tie in nicely to Custom Display Templates and allow us to bring back content from anywhere in the farm. The Content Editor Web Part is a staple...it allows us to link to a txt or html file to surface custom content in a web…

  9. New Event Web Part should support recurring events

    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.

  10. Define section background color in the modern pages

    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.

    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)

  11. Discussion Board Webpart

    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.

  12. Fully integrated overlay calendar from Exchange

    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.

  13. To provide features to restrict certain updates to modern pages created from a page template

    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.

  14. Give opportunity to remove or deactivate standard SPFx client webparts

    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.

    This is also explained in stack overflow:

    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.

    Documentation is available here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/sharepoint-online/Set-SPOTenant?view=sharepoint-ps

  15. Hubsite Navigation to Highlight In Bold Which Site You Are On

  16. Hub site names must be unique

    Enforce unique names for Hubs. Under Hub Site Settings, site admins can rename the Hubs and use an existing name. This is problematic. Other sites that want to associate themselves with the Hub won't know which Hub to pick if they see more than one on the dropdown. It also presents other issues on reporting, etc.
