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?

We find the documents web part is to small for the small right hand side column causing it to miss information. Despite there being plenty of space on the right to spread out in to.

If you remove the vertical navigation, then allow for full width. It looks like most individuals would like to have the option. Communications sites look nice but lack some functionality of the team site. The team site is very functional, but looks terrible.
It would be great to merge this for my application.
Please enable Full Width on Team Site! Thank you!!

Need to use the Full Width Column. Please add and let us decide how it will look and when to use it. Thank you!
This is still highly relevant, however I do agree that in all reality users should just utilise a communications build instead of a teams site.
However, our admin provider has created teams sites instead of communications on multiple occasions and I must say the disparity in design aesthetic between teams and comms sites left me waiting for the comms template, instead of utilising the teams sites. It looks outdated.

Our company has deployed 38" curved Dell monitors across the organization. The modern SharePoint pages that look so great on our laptops look very odd on large screens (lots of ugly white space on the right side). If I may suggest: MS could create a responsive layout for larger screens, to take advantage of the real estate.
Nicolle's solution, from November 16, 2019, involving adding some custom css to the spfx webpart worked for me. I just added the customStyles.module.scss, from the git repository , to the same location as there, and everything seems to be ok.
All features of a Communications site (Top nav, footer, full-witdh column, etc.) should be also available to Teams site. This way, we can benefit and optimize on the Teams site, instead of having the user to go from sites to sites (for same team members). Also, by having those features in Teams site, it would allow the user to navigate in the SharePoint site that would be added as a tab in Teams (users could use the tab in Teams to view content of SharePoint and navigate with top nav/footer directly in Teams). Right now, when adding a SharePoint tab to Teams, the left navigation does not show.

To answer your question, I would imagine it to have either the option of having
1) a fourth column so we can add more content and/or
2) center everything on the page and have a top bar with drop-downs
It is not difficult to enable these features. Just look at how the communication sites look. We want the look-and-feel of a communication site but be able to utilize Team-Site features.
Microsoft is a multi-billion dollar company, I am pretty sure you have developers who can establish literally anything.
It is difficult to make the endusers understand why so much space is wasted at the right of the section. Extremely frustrating. Please deliver and act!
Why does Microsoft not update on this - Why hundreds of users complaining and nothing is done?
Please would a MS staff member actually respond and advise timeframe for this simple option to be added
More page layouts to cover all the with of the page please. And capacity to add custom css code
I am generally disabling the quick launch so i would imaging it would work/look exactly the same as it would in a comms site. It should just fill up the real-estate. It could in principal work even with the quick launch enabled...and i would imagine a lot of people would prefer this over the one column option.
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
