Allow anchor links to be used in the modern Quick Links web part
Anchors were recently released for Modern Pages which is great... but we cant use them in Quick Links web parts... they just don't work.
I would expect when a URL with an anchor is added into a Quick Link at the top of a page, that page would automatically scroll down to the correct heading (as it does when you click the anchor symbol at the end of a heading).
This does not happen; nothing happens. Please update the behavior of the Quick Links web part to allow a URL with an anchor to work correctly and take the user to the related heading on the page.
Why the links are allowed only for headings? What about other webparts like People webpart & News webpart... the dirty solution is to provide these webparts heading as a new text, format as Heading1/2/3 and then have a link to that section... not a good solution

Similarly, any links with appended commands get truncated so they break. For example, if you use 'query string url' pages and they have the trailing "SitePages/Pagename.aspx?Filter=xyz" then it breaks and only passes through /Pagename.aspx.
The links work if you manually open the link in a new tab so it's definitely something wrong with the quick links web part.
Please fix Microsoft!
Yay - glad you implemented anchor links, but it would be helpful if you applied the heading tags for Quicklinks webparts also! Thank you!
