Add the ability to copy a modern site page from one site to another
You cannot copy a site page from on site to the site pages folder of another site. This is crazy. You can't restructure your pages into other sites. This prevents users from investing any effort in configuration that might change. It is extremely limiting.
Thanks for the suggestion. While this can accomplished via PnP Powershell today, we understand the desire to have a way to do it in the UX. We’ll add it to our backlog.
Community demo - Exporting and importing modern pages cross sites and tenants with PnP tools
if MFA is in place, add <-useweblogin> at the end in Connect-PnPOnline
PLEASE can we have the PNP Powershell commands?
we purchased your Office 365 Business Essentials license to use Mail, data sharing and collaboration in one service. Before 365 we used as Collab Tool and Documentation System "Atlassian Confluence" and unfortunately I can say that Confluence is much more better then Sharepoint. More functionality more efficience and a lot of more features.
Sharepoint additionally seems very buggy and really complex in it's site structure. One of the core features should be copying ability of sites OMG
I think you should fast extend the tool !!!

I am also very very curious how I should accomplish this using PnP PowerShell, never got it to work...
Microsoft Sharepoint is built by true idiots...No quality control anymore...They just roll stuff out & don't care to test it.
So what are the PNP Powershell commands ???

This is one of the basic features which is required from the UX.Can it be added asap.
I can't even do this with SharePoint Designer or ShareGate. This is ridiculous. I ought to at least be able to set the permissions to allow this.
Is there an update on this? This seems like such a no-brainer to develop and something really simple to implement.

Yes, this is important! And also to be able to choose to move belonging assets (pictures eg.) to the site asset library in the new site.
Until this feature is available this info MUST BE available in product documentation :( :(
This is very important info when considering intrantet structure. I would have not created different sites under hub site if i would have known that pages can't be moved.
Unbelievable copy / paste manual work in 2019!
How is this not a thing? Our IT department created a large # of FAQ pages that we need to merge into a new IT site. Like Geri, I said "Of course, it'll just be a few clicks!" and then... WTF? Really?!
Micosoft, please add basic functionality and bug fixes before you run off creating flashy new features that aren't full fleshed out or useful.
yeah, have received few requests in that direction today

Is there a workaround or third-party plugin while MS adds this super-useful and basic feature?
We need more and more comments on this! Maybe it will work. My comment is: How its possible it is still not on the backlog?
I desperately need this implementation as I have a lot of moving around to do
Looking forward to this implementation. We can copy entire folder structures from a OneDrive document library to a SharePoint document library, but not a page (which is really just an aspx file within a page library)
the ability of copying pages form one site to another one should be a must-have
Concur, we need to have the ability to move pages around.
Could the Product team provide a link to the PnP Powershell solution? I couldn't find anything on the PnP Github repository. I could only find a Powershell solution on Stackexchange.
My SharePoint Admin advised that if we used that Powershell solution I found on StackExchange we would lose our version history and page visits count - reasonably important pieces of data for our page.
Essentially, we're no better of than if we just copied and pasted content from one page to another if we use PowerShell.
