  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/

    • 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.

      • Missing page layout option in communication sites

        The publishing possibilities shown in the new communication sites serve a great insight of possibilities to create content in SharePoint. While this is an suitable approach for user generated content such as in Wikis there is a high demand to provide a consistent corporate wide communication.
        In the past this was possible through page layout option which is now missing and removes the ability for corporate communication departments to manage, plan and organise the content to communicate.
        In addition the missing page layout option lead to inconsistent and at least time consuming page creation. It will be hard to recreate…

        • 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.

            • Communication Site: Themes and and branding options missing

              The current communication site template cannot be used for corporate wide communication because there are some important things missing.
              The overall design is only able to speak and represent only the Microsofot CI/CD. The missing branding and theming options makes it hard to be used in corporates because there is currently no way to apply corporate communication and design guidelines to the page. For user it makes it hard to identify the page as an official communication channel by the company and not by Microsoft.

              In addition not even well known and supported customisations through Themes is possible at the…

                • Change page or news page authors

                  please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

                    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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                              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.

                                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.

                                    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.

                                    • 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…

                                      • 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!

                                        • 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)
