      • 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/

        • A Total Revamp for Wikis

          Could we please have the ability to create Wikis in SharePoint that look like TechNet or Wikipedia? Please try to make things more simple. Do not over complicate it again.

          • 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

            • Make the Delve organization chart available as a web part in regular sites.

              The current "organization browser" web part :
              The html view is just a list = not worth the time
              You need silverlight to get a visual presentation but:
              -nobody uses silverlight
              -silverlight isn't compatible with modern browsers (because no one uses it)
              The silverlight rendition in IE is appallingly ugly and isn't responsive.

              To have a functional attractive org chart seems like a no brainer for a service that claims to be "enterprise" ready. It's already built in Deleve so just make it available as a web part.

              • Column totals missing in modern list views

                Column totals missing in modern list views.

                This is an often used function, and the workaround to set the list back to classic will only be a temporary solution.

                • 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.

                  • More than 2 levels of "Group By"

                    There is a strong need to Group By more than two levels of column data. Example, we use SP to track mosquitos for vector control. I want to Group by Week, Trap Site, Trap Type, Species, Condition, etc... The ability to drill down and see totals for each condition or "Group By" would be fantastic. This leads to the next suggestion, Add Calculated columns to Group By Totals.

                    • Missing page layout option in communication sites

                      The publishing possibilities shown in the new communication sites serve a great insight of possibilities to create content in SharePoint. While this is an suitable approach for user generated content such as in Wikis there is a high demand to provide a consistent corporate wide communication.
                      In the past this was possible through page layout option which is now missing and removes the ability for corporate communication departments to manage, plan and organise the content to communicate.
                      In addition the missing page layout option lead to inconsistent and at least time consuming page creation. It will be hard to recreate…

                      • Ability to save a file directly into a library and choose the metadata

                        There are some ways but they are limited. They don’t work in some situations or from any application. The saving experience to a shared drive is still so much more consistent!
                        - Use a favorite/add network location/map network drive
                        - In Office, we can choose where to save, pin in each application
                        - Save from an email: a message or attachment by saving on the desktop
                        It would be amazing to be able to:
                        1. Mark all sites (or libraries) where we would want to save (shortcuts)
                        2. Click on save in any application and be able to choose one…

                        • Drag and drop from SharePoint to desktop

                          In the past, you were able to not only drag and drop files from your desktop to SharePoint, you could also drag and top files visvera from your SharePoint to your desktop. Unfortunately, this feature does not work any longer and was never intented to work based on the statement of the support specialist (Office365 support case: SRX616012694500709ID). I do not see a security issue here, because it only worked when the site was part of the trusted sites/intranet in the IE options. eRoom had this feature with a plug-in already back in 2002 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ERoom). It would be…

                          • 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…

                              Wikipedia had it implemented years ago. I suggest you to add a dynamically created Table of Contents (TOC) for SharePoint Wiki pages, according to the title-styles used in the documents.

                                  • Remove the 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields

                                    There is currently a 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields. This restriction impedes ability to save Urls that might include hash values are long query strings. Some examples where this is really common are links to SSRS reports (with parameters) and Search urls that contain refinements.

                                    • Permissions report - inheritance breaks

                                      Allow the owners of the sites to view a report of the security of their site. Start by adding a chart of the inheritance breaks of the whole site in one glance. This will become more and more important since you can use the 'Share' button on a file and break inheritance without understanding what you're doing.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Introduce markdown syntax for authoring content

                                          As a systems engineer/developer, I love the office 365/sharepoint platform. The one thing that's stops me from using it for everything is the lack of a productive way to generate content.

                                          Editing content in the UI is horrendously slow and painful, I just want to be able to author content quickly with markdown syntax, and publish my content/documentation quickly and easily.

                                          What's microsofts standpoint on this? Am i the first to request this? (i highly doubt i'm the only one who wants this...)

                                          Cheers,

                                          Morgan
