Highlighted Content - Events need 'sort by event date'
We have a hub site that pulls in news and events from several other sites. The News works really well, but the Events don't.
We need to sort the events by Event Date and only show upcoming events. Currently we can only sort by the date the event was added to the site and this is irrelevant.
Images added as event headers should show in the webpart cards, like the News does. (I've already upvoted someone else's suggestion for this).
This is basic functionality. Supporting this would give much more usability and users will like to do things with SharePoint Online. Not supporting it will have the oposite reaction. After a few years with the modern pages I'm a bit disapointed with the flexibility to do things you like to do. Microsoft I hope you will put more resources to fill the gaps of functionality you are supporiting with the classic pages.
Why can't we filter for this weeks events only. Not useful otherwise
We really need to be able to only show upcoming events otherwise this feature is pretty much useless.
