  1. Title Banner on Modern Pages

    Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.

  2. Page Layouts in Modern Pages

    The modern pages are great, however there should be more flexibility such as being able to select different page layouts and would take the best from the old classic pages and incorporating with the new modern look and feel.

  3. Remove banner and header title from modern pages

    I would like to be able to remove the header from the new/modern "Pages". When I add a new page on SharePoint online now, I love the new page except for the top header image and text which takes up about a 3rd of the page. It's wasted space and not aesthetically pleasing.

    There are two requests in this one item. Based on the title, I’m going to mark this done with our work to add four layouts to the title area. One of these layouts is called “Plain” and shows only one line of page title, with no image.

    Many of the comments are asking for another great feature, not related to the page title area, but rather the site header. We’re also working on allowing options to resize this area. We’ve added a “compact view” for the site header, and have plans for an even more minimized view. If this feature is what you’d like to upvote, please add a new UserVoice request.

  4. Comment notifications

    An alert option for leaving comments. At the moment there is no way of finding out if people left a comment.

  5. Publish date format defaulting to US Format in Modern Pages for other regions

    The Published date on Modern Site Pages in Classic SharePoint sites is defaulting to US format (MM/DD/YYYY) although the tenant is in AU format (DD/MM/YYYY).

    The date format for other content in SharePoint Classic sites is MM/DD/YYYY which is same as Regional Settings.

  6. Page templates for Modern Pages and Libraries that allow removal of elements and reuse

    Allow page authors to design page templates right in the Page Edit UI. Page edit would allow them to remove the Title Banner, Logo, left navigation, Edit link, New Link, Share Link, Search box and save the template for reuse.

    Page Templates would support web parts and new developed custom JS controls for things like custom navigation controls.

  7. Features to Edit Modern Pages

    There is too little control of a Modern Page. You can't control text size and coloring, you have limited format control, and most of all you can't *edit source*. I used this to drop in things like Image Maps or other HTML that there was no way to add in.

    As we mentioned in the last update, we’re working on anchor linking for modern pages, and it should be available shortly. We’ll clear up the m365 Roadmap to ensure that gets added.

    See this suggestion:
    https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/33253909-anchor-links-or-collapsing-sections

    Text formatting is already available in the rich text editor on modern pages.

    To create an image map you could use the image web part for a single link, but to make multiple links across different parts of the image, you’d need to leverage a web part designed to do that. There are partners and potentially open source web parts to create Image Maps.

    If you have other suggestions (e.g. font selection), please search and vote for those, or open a new suggestion. Thank you.

  8. Enable custom columns for modern pages

    Consistent with the classic "publishing" use case, would like the ability to add custom columns to modern site pages and make these columns editable in the page properties UI in the Site Pages document library.

    An extension of this would allow editing of the page properties on the page itself, similar to custom page layouts on classic publishing pages.

  9. Site Settings option missing in the Modern pages

    In SharePoint Online, the site settings option is missing in all the modern pages. It looks weird for all the users as they don't find the direct option to access the site settings page from the landing page of the site. It would be great if you include the site settings option in the modern pages/sites.

  10. Revamp team calendars

    Traditional calendars are too clunky and users find it difficult to set up a team calendar on their Team Sites - plus there is no intuitive way to embed these in a modern page.

    It would be very useful to have a simple Calendar web part - similar to the Events web part - that could be added to a modern page quickly, so that everyone can see each others' activity and schedule team meetings and events more easily.

    We’ve recently rolled out a group calendar web part that allows you to pull in calendar info from your team calendar.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/New-Group-calendar-web-part-rolling-out-now/td-p/99819

    At the moment it doesn’t allow you to schedule team meetings, but we’ll likely not invest on adding that to SharePoint as there are so many other ways to create team calendar events (Outlook, Teams, Skype, etc.) If you feel you need that directly in SharePoint, please tell us more.

  11. Remove Title Area

    Is that able to completely remove Page Title Area or minimize it size?
