  1. Stop opening links in new tab in modern pages

    Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.

    It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.

    Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.

    In modern pages, we open links within SharePoint in the same tab by default, and external links in a new tab. In the text web part, users can specify to open links in a new tab, but that isn’t the default behavior. Similarly, for navigation links, they follow the same rule (within SharePoint, same tab, external to SharePoint in a new tab). This is true of the modern web parts that support linking as well (hero, quick links, images, etc.) This is the pattern we’ve adopted for consistency.

    After reviewing other areas of modern sites, like the site pages library, document libraries, lists, site contents, etc. we did find some different opening behaviors which we’ll review and resolve.

    Can you help us understand if this pattern isn’t meeting your expectation, if we have some inconsistencies within modern pages we’ve missed, or if it’s the other areas of modern sites where…

  2. Anchor Links or Collapsing Sections

    It would be helpful to have sections that collapse, tabs, or anchor links for pages that contain lots of information. Word allows you to create bookmarks, and OneNote allows you to create tabs to easily navigate lots of information on a given topic. It would be great if you had the same flexibility with a page in SharePoint

  3. A Total Revamp for Wikis

    Could we please have the ability to create Wikis in SharePoint that look like TechNet or Wikipedia? Please try to make things more simple. Do not over complicate it again.

    We know wikis are critical to sharing knowledge within your organization! We’ve been slowly building capabilities to share information more easily with our focus on modern pages and web parts. And with that work, we’ve been adding some of the capabilities we hear you want when people refer to wikis (easily add links to other pages or content, add metadata to each page to help people find and categorize it, roll-up content based on that metadata to show groupings of like content, etc.) But we know this isn’t all that’s required to have a great wiki. Many people also want wiki linking syntax e.g. [[]], we don’t yet support that, but we do support ctrl/command + K from the text web part to search and find pages on your site. We’ll be working on adding wiki syntax shortly. We know you also need easy roll-up pages, maybe an index page,…

  4. Enable Audience targeting on modern page web parts

    It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages. Thanks

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. remove recycle bin from left navigation for Visitors

    Recycle bin is not relevant for visitors resp. page viewers (users with read permission to the site.) Add the ability to remove it from navigation.

    People who wants it can always add it as a standard link to the menu.

  10. Calendar

    Please Add a Full Calendar Web Part for the Modern Pages that optionally includes the overlay selection feature, date picker, and toggle between day, week and month. I am not sure why this has not been addressed. Maybe pause on the Bing Maps integration that is rarely used, and work on the regular stuff that has been around for years and is used frequently.

  11. Too much white space

    There is too much white space on the new modern pages. I would rather see less white space and be able to adjust the spacing myself.

  12. Allow changing the width of columns when adding sections to a Modern Page

    Looks like you can't change columns' width when creating a new section in a Modern Page. Being able to chage it would be very useful. My classic page, for example, has a section containing 3 columns, where the first and last ones have their width set to 25%, while the central one has width set to 50%. In Modern Pages, I can only have 3 columns with the same width, 33% in this case.

    Thanks you for the suggestion. We’ve discussed adding additional column layout options (e.g. 4 columns, the specific example provided by the initial suggester 25/50/25, etc.) If we wanted to keep pages consistent (so there aren’t 50 layouts), but allow additional flexibility, what would be the next three layout choices you’d add? Thanks!

  13. drag and drop images in wiki pages and blogs

    other CMS systems already allow this functionality. Instead of having to save an image somewhere and then upload it to SharePoint, let me just drag / drop images on the wiki and blog pages. Would be ideal for screenshots

  14. Publish a modern page on a given time

    My users would like the ability to publish a modern page on a given time. Now it is only possible to publish a page directly. Make it possible to publish a modern page on time the user (optionally) enters in a datetime field.

  15. Enable "tel:" and "mailto:" links in editor

    When creating links using the Wysiwig editor we should have the ability to add "tel:" links and "mailto:" links.

  16. Improve Highlighted content web part to support custom content types and their custom columns

    I'd like to show users documents from an another site (different o365 group site). I came across the Highlighted content web part which is a very flexible and potentially useful function. However I can not filter my documents with it as it
    1 does not show custom content type at the type or document type filters (even though my content type is directly inheriting Document), and does not lists my documents either (basically being Documents because of the inheritance)
    2 can not select custom columns of my content type at the managed property filter.

  17. All classic web parts for Modern Team Sites

    Prior to modern pages, we had many web parts to choose from in SharePoint (Content Search, Search Box, Search Results, Content Editor Web Part, etc.). Some of the modern web parts are cool, but the Content Search, Search Box, Search Results, Content Editor Web Part are HUGELY important and widely used. The search web parts mentioned tie in nicely to Custom Display Templates and allow us to bring back content from anywhere in the farm. The Content Editor Web Part is a staple...it allows us to link to a txt or html file to surface custom content in a web…

  18. Allow customizing fonts in “Modern” pages.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    "モダン" ページのフォントをカスタマイズできるようにしてほしい

    Allow customizing fonts in “Modern” pages.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現時点で "モダン" ページのフォントをカスタマイズすることができないため、カスタマイズできるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, I recognized that the customization for fonts is not available on “Modern” pages.

    In order to improve the usability for the pages, it will be great if we could customize fonts on “Modern” pages as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  19. Define section background color in the modern pages

    Please let us define a custom background color for a Section on the page.

    It would allow us to give more "rhythm" to the page content and highlight some content on the page.

    For example the https://dev.office.com/ site uses a light blue "section background color" to separate the "getting started"-links from rest of the content.

    Today modern pages support picking one of three colors derived from the site theme (soft, neautral, strong). We likely won’t be investing in the option to add arbitrary other colors as a section background, violating the site’s theme. For the other suggestions, please open a unique uservoice suggestion (e.g. support section background images)

  20. Configuring Search Results view in Modern pages

    Search Results Page of Modern Pages doesn't allow an option to customize the results view, change default scopes or switch to classic search results format. The search is locked to current site and result view format which mayn't be always what users need.

    While the Modern page UI is work in progress, at least, there should be an option to override the search results to default to OSSSearchResults or to an Classic Enterprise center if needed.
