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/1,146 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint UserVoice Admin (SharePoint UserVoice Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
As per the Message Center Post MC187289 we have started to roll out Site Swap. This is a new PowerShell cmdlet Invoke-SPOSiteSwap that will enable you to swap your existing root site with a Communication Site. For further information please refer to https://aka.ms/SiteSwap.
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.543 votes
We are happy to share that we are actively working on it. We will be sharing more details about the plans at the SharePoint conference in Vegas.
Here is the MS road map item
Here’s the session we’ll share more details.
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.399 votes
Its already supported to remove the Feedback button. Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false.
Categorize and filter news articles on new publishing site
Ability to select category (or multiple) for a news article when you create it. Plus the ability to filter the news widget by category.
Exactly like you can for events. Plus the ability to select multiple categories if you choose.242 votes
Today you can add metadata to modern pages and news. Also the news web part currently supports filtering news by metadata, as long as the source of the content is the current site.
We’re working to enable this same filtering across sites right now.
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.)225 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint UserVoice Admin (SharePoint UserVoice Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
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.210 votes
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" dates189 votes
Please allow us to modify the email digest template to include the corporate logo. Preferably removing Microsoft and SharePoint from the top of the digest and moving them to the bottom next to get the app.172 votes
Hi! It would be great if you could chose to have the hero web part in lesser height.154 votes
We’ve reduced the height of the hero web part when in full width columns, but still maintain as much of the aspect ratio as possible. On a very large monitor this can still make the hero quite tall. Authors could also drag hero our of the full width column, into a one column layout (with gutters) , which significantly reduces the height. How would you imagine it should work differently in the full width, or is moving to a one column layout the right choice for reduced height? Thanks!
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.144 votes
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.130 votes
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.102 votes
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.97 votes
1. Please allow the ability to add a customer banner (color and/or picture).
2. Please allow the ability to have sections and a colored headers for each.
3. Please allow the ability tochange the SharePoint logo to a custom logo or our organization logo.95 votes
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.90 votesin the plans · AdminSharePoint UserVoice Admin (SharePoint UserVoice Admin, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We are planning to provide a path selection mechanism in the new admin center, but until then we’ll look to at least amend the PowerShell (note that you can already set the path using PnP PowerShell – specifically, the New-PnPTenantSite cmdlet).

Saw the new feature and I love it!! But I have a few questions/requests
Is there any way to replace Microsoft and SharePoint logos at the top with those from my own organization or at least put those at the bottom.
Also can the SharePoint logo just above the header be replaced?
Also, I have several subsites that have their own newsfeed. Is there any way to combine those newsfeeds with my main newsfeed into one email digest?82 votes
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)77 votes
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.73 votes

Allow the option to schedule posts for the News Section.
Allow the option to change the published date for posts in the News Section (e.g. if you need to back-date something).
Allow the option to change the publishing user on News posts (e.g if you're publishing something on behalf of a team member, but want their name displayed, not yours)
We’re working on a scheduling feature now for pages and news posts.
You can now set the author of a news post (or page) to another team member with our enhancements to title area on pages that rolled out in December 2018.
