Full-Width Column Webpart available to Team Site Template
In the Modern Experience, allow the option to add "Full-Width Column" webpart. Currently, this is exclusively available for Communication Site template. Would be great to have this available for Team Site template. It does not look aesthetically appealing have this area of white space on the right hand on a site page.
We initially didn’t enable the full width column on team sites due to the vertical navigation on the left and left justification of team site pages. How do you imagine it should work/look on those pages?
Totally agree this extremely frustrating and the white space is a waste of real estate. It would make much more sense for the width to be full screen as the large majority of our users have wide monitors so there is potentially a third of the width that is not in use.
We are actively promoting the use of team sites for more localised content management at team level but the inability to have full width is proving to be a blocker to this style of site being used
When designing home page. Unless you choose 3 columns for layout in a section. It leaves a bunch of white space on the right side of sections even if you have a left navigation bar. Especially on monitors w/landscape views. If there was a full width option it would fix this. Even choosing 3 columns leaves an awkward space on the right. This is not an issue in the server versions b/c you have the option to adjust the section width.
I just added a One Column section to the home page on my team site. I then added a list web part to this One Column section. My list has a few more columns than are visible in the web part. If the list web part would extend all the way to the right of the One Column section, then all my list's columns would be visible. Instead, the user sees 80% of the list, and has to use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the web part to scroll to the right to veiw the rest of the columns in the list. You have chosen to leave a major portion of the page as blank (10 to 20%?) and give the user a horizontal scroll bar instead.
As a workaround, I'd have to hide columns in my list's view. However, this still leaves a major portion of the page unused. That's valuable real estate in my book.
My Fortune 100 employer recently installed Teams, which introduced Modern SharePoint to tens of thousands of end users. The lack of full-width columns in Team Sites makes no sense. Microsoft: please enable this feature ASAP. We all want the *option* to maximize the content displayed at the top of every Team Site page and reduce the need for users to scroll down.

Please allow us to remove the left navigation, however you want to implement this. This is THE top request we have on the UI.
I'm seconding Pam's comment of December 13. We need every bit of width available when working with embedded dashboards and PowerApps.
I need this. Please introduce option to remove left side navigation and introduce full width option for the page. User can choose full width option only if the side navigation is disabled. This would be very helpful for developers in designing
Agree -- this seems like basic functionality in this day of huge monitors. We're trying to place Power BI reports in pages, and they shrink to be just annoying enough that no one wants them in there because they're hard to read. And this is in addition to the fact that it's just wasted real estate that pushes us to add more content below. The new vertical pane on the right addresses some of the lopsidedness, but it's still just an afterthought with some filler-content so the page doesn't end up looking incomplete.

I need this too, or just fix the OneColumn part. Currently it seems the OneColumn has a max-width of 1268px (CSS: .CanvassZone) which only allows 4 tiled documents in the Highlighted Content part. Removing via F12 the max-width for CanvassZone fixes that but highlights issues with the fourth ms-list-cells's DIV having no padding-right:20px.
This seems like the simplest change to restrictions which should never have been made.
Hello, I think I saw something on github that might help. Totally agree with this idea - full width bleed and ability to centre page content.
even just being able to center the content would be preferable to the current state
It's just stupid to not have the ability for full-width-column. You are wasting half of the width on most of the screens.
Please change that !

Do you need more justification or do you have enough in the comments already given? In general: leave all options open don't limit

Further to my comments the other day, having just watched a video about white space
All the examples were for public facing websites, where the content is largely up for general consumption, so yes, it makes sense to take more control over white space. However, we are talking about SharePoint, where only my internal users are going to see it. Also we are talking about different types of data here. If I need to display a matrix of data (a list in a list view webpart), I cannot make it go full width on a team site, so my users are stuck with having to not only scroll up and down, but side to side as well.
I understand Microsofts design decision, I do, but these intranets and dashboards are supposed to be ours to design and mess up on. If I want to design a horrible looking intranet page, that is functional, and my users can get what they need on, surely, that is up to us?

Is there any update on this issue? The initial request was made two years ago and the only response was 5 months ago. What more is needed to address this concern?

Hi Sites Product Team, What we are asking for here is for us to have the ability to fill up the white space on the right hand side of the page. Even on a 1920x1080 screen, there is a HUGE white gap between where the page ends and the right hand side of the screen. It would be good for us to be able to add another column or make it so that a webpart could fill the screen all the way to the right instead of being limited to the 800 pixels you have given us. We reference the full width ability in communication sites, because it goes all the way over to the right. We want the same thing, but with the navigation menu on the left.

Absolutely needs to be updated to allow this option - when showing pages to users in a design capacity, the amount of white space leads to confusion of how the pages can be utilised and disappointment when its explained that it's just wasted space.
I too am having difficulty with all the white space. it really takes away from my web design and page. I don't want to have to move to a Communication Site because we have corporate links that will be affected.
Mike Colbourne commented
The fact that you can't have a full width column in a Team site is a big pain for us. We have to migrate to a communication site just to get the proper layout? The reasoning behind this is boggling
It would be nice to have an option to go full width or not. I like options.
