  1. remove recycle bin from left navigation for Visitors

    Recycle bin is not relevant for visitors resp. page viewers (users with read permission to the site.) Add the ability to remove it from navigation.

    People who wants it can always add it as a standard link to the menu.

  2. Ability to set 'Tile' or 'List' as a default view

    Please allow libraries to be show in List view by default.

    I don't mind tile view, but when I got to all the trouble of setting up columns and mandatory fields and it displays tiles by default for each new user, all the power of the document library metadata is hidden.

    This happened for me when the library contained only PDFs

  4. 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. Wiki link functionality in modern pages

    When editing text blocks in a modern web pages, I'd like to use the wiki link code [[New Page Here]] and have the same functionality, meaning that when saved I can click the "New Page Here" link and have a new page be created automatically with the original link going to the new page.

  7. Create Groups sites under /Teams and Communications sites under /Sites

    Communications sites should not be created in the same managed path as Groups sites. They are not managed the same way and don't follow the same rules.

    At least, allow the selection of the path on the create screen.

  8. Content Search Webpart with targeting audience property, in Modern View

    The actual Content Search Webpart with targeting audience property is not available for Modern View pages.
    This is a great web part functionality that should be preserved in the modern view, is very useful in several item segmentation scenarios.

  9. Need a better way of viewing photos in an online folder instead of one at a time.

    Improve the photo viewer in an online folder instead of only being able to view one photo at a time. It needs to work much like OneDrive Personal where you can scroll through an entire folder of photo files by clicking a next button.

  10. Quick Links should allow mailto and respect query string parameters

    The quick links web part does not allow mailto protocol based links, and when linking to a document if I have web=0 in the url to force a document to open in the client application, the link is overwritten to also include a web=1. If a parameter exists in a url, the web part should not attempt to overwrite/append it.
