  1. Set "Communication Site" as Root site collection

    For organisations that would like to use Communication site as their intranet it would be great if you could provision the root site as a Communication site, rather than a team site with a redirect to the communication site.

    There is a workaround as mentioned here but i'd prefer a Microsoft supported method https://hangconsult.com/2017/06/29/change-sharepoint-online-root-site-collection-to-use-the-new-communication-site-template/

  2. Multilingual Communication Sites

    Including support would be needed.

    My client has a legal requirement for using software, intranets that is Bi-Lingual.

    Communication sites are really great way to building new Intranets quickly but this is a critical feature for adoption.

  4. Remove Get the mobile app and Feedback buttons

    Please allow site administrators to remove or hide this button as we don't want our internal user to send feedback to microsoft instead of internal support team.

  5. Add News Article Metadata

    Add News Article Metadata

    When adding a news article (site page) on Communication Sites, through the new interface, it would be great to be able to populate additional metadata for the page.

    This could be along the lines of tagging pages with keywords for searching through articles or adding custom metadata.

  7. Provide option to convert existing site to communication site

    For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.

    It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.

    It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.

    It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)

  8. Office 365 Connectors web part in Communication Sites

    Office 365 Connectors within SharePoint are only available for use within group-connected SharePoint team sites, according to https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/use-the-connector-web-part-db0756aa-f78f-4b74-8b19-be5dca0420e1.

    Please add support for using Office 365 Connectors also in Communication Sites. For example, I would like to display data from outside by using an RSS Feed connector on a Communication Site page.

  10. Comment Alerts

    SharePoint site news articles are great with the embedded comments section. I would ask and recommend that there be some sort of notifier/alert to the original comment poster when someone else responds to it. This would help keep conversations going forward. It's rather hard to find your original comments when there are many comment posts.

  11. Modern Page Ratings

    Will the functionality to like/rate pages be added to the modern pages? This is obviously available on classic pages and would be a great addition to the modern pages especially within the Communication sites.

  12. Add Rating Settings to Document Libraries

    Add the "Rating Settings" to document libraries in Communication Sites. This exists on other doc libraries from other site templates. This would allow users to rate/like content and we could add a section of "most like documents" etc to the page.

  13. Create Groups sites under /Teams and Communications sites under /Sites

    Communications sites should not be created in the same managed path as Groups sites. They are not managed the same way and don't follow the same rules.

    At least, allow the selection of the path on the create screen.

  14. Disable Comments on new Pages by default

    I like the new Comments feature on Comm. Sites.
    But there are use cases, where you need to create plenty of pages without comments. After publishing a new page we need to edit, disable comments and publish this page again.

    Would be nice to enable/disable comments by default on Site Collection level.

  15. Fix Highlighted Content Events to show the event and not the list view

    Highlighted Content Events do not show the event when you click on the event within highlighted content.

    News events in highlighted content shows the news article that was originally posted. So why don't events?

    The highlighted content event should show the actual event.

  16. Improvements to HERO tiles size and layout

    Can there be an option to make the Hero Tiles smaller? They are very large and would be good to have some control of the size and how many tiles you can have (5 is too little, I might want 6+ smaller tiles, for example)

  17. bing translation services integrated in a modern site

    As there is no variations feature anymore and obviuosly Microsoft isn´t investing in this feature for communications sites it would be pretty helpful to have bing translator integrated to a News page or normal page inside communication sites. We as a large coopertaion have to meet legal requirements providing multiple languages for an Intranet. Its just ´so much effort and not really efficient to create for each language an own communication site and link in between. This is as well nor really ideal for Editors of articles who have to publish their News multiple times in various communication site with…

  18. Editable publish date

    Provide an editable field for publish date of pages and news articles. As we migrate content from another platform it's important to maintain existing "published" dates

  19. Better Usage Report for Communication Sites

    We are using the communication sites mostly for company news, but we still cant see who read this or that news.

    So, considering the objective of a coomunication site, it will be great if we can see:
    1. Who has accessed the main page;
    2. Which page news they opened;

    A ranking for most read news and this kind of thing will also be amazing!

  20. Add language picker to the site creation wizard

    Communication & modern team sites created only in English. There is no option to create them in other languages. Please add language picker to process. Global organizations have local subsidiaries and they wish to allow local teams to communicate in the local language. In the tenant admin you can set option to force default language for all tenant sites or to allow language selection which will be added to the self site creation wizard.
