Add Confluence type capabilities to SharePoint Wiki
Atlassian Confluence is offering a bunch of wiki capabilities that make using the wiki as an effective collaboration tool very easy. I think if SharePoint could create similar solutions it would be very beneficial towards helping organizations maintain living wiki libraries. Some examples...
- Allow users to create wiki page templates (also perhaps offer out of box wiki page templates to suggest best practices)
- Improve the organizing experience for wiki pages. While the typical library experience is OK I think offering a parallel drag, drop hierarchy with a drill down experience would provide a more natural navigation structure for user in addition to wiki linking. This can sort of be accomplished with folder - but could be improved upon for a more natural experience.
- Allow @ mentioning of SharePoint users in wiki pages which should create email notification and a SharePoint location to view linked mentions
- Enable discussion threads about wiki pages allowing users to comment about the wiki
- Enable collaborative workflow functionality on wiki pages. Allow someone to comment on specific wiki text and use task like functionality to track and resolve comments
- Enhance the wiki page management capabilities. Seeing incoming links is nice. It would be nice to more easily see orphaned pages and outgoing linked pages more succinctly.

This is going to be extremely useful. A capability like this will make creating a knowledge base or an internal wiki super easy.
Being able to easily assign a task to someone in Confluence is priceless.
Just type  @username the task i want you to do \\ (for date)
And then each user has an assigned task list...

This is the most important thing Sharepoint development team can deliver. The ability to co-author and collaborate like we can on Word documents in Modern pages. Sharepoint cannot be called collaboration and productivity application without the ability to comment on each item and nobody wants to integrate yammer feeds to individual pages or (hash)tag every item manually . It should be a simple switch or simply show team/group conversation as comments for a document/item in the details pane. Is Noteboard coming back or getting migrated?
