  1. table of contents on modern page

    Some times there is a need to create a long text divided by headings level 1 and 2, on a Communication site. There is already the heading functionalities. Would it be possible to add a table of content-functionality, and give the reader a chance to jump to next text section on a page, or click the relevant "heading" in the table of contents.

  2. SharePoint: add "Delete" or "Edit" option to Comments

    Is it in the plans to add a delete or edit function to the comment section on SharePoint? This increased functionality would be very beneficial. It would also be nice if the editors for the site had access to delete any comment that is made in case it is inappropriate. If I am missing this function somewhere, please advise.

  5. E-mail Followers of communications site

    I would like to have the option to mail followers of my communications site within my business when we post a news article. At present we have a lot of news coming from product groups internally but unless a user checks their main sharepoint page they wont know if news is available and quite often things can go unseen. Ideally we would be able to post news and choose to mail our followers an alert on this to ensure their choice of topic is delivered to them.

  6. 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!

  7. 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…

  8. Full With News Webpart with Parellex scroll

    For the next version of the LEGO Intranet I'll very much like to be able to show news in a full width News Web-part with Parellex scroll for the smooth effect of the Hero web-part.
    This will make my new Intranet "Home" page look as good and modern as it can get but with dynamic news as the main content and not static content as the Hero web-part delivers.

    I'm suggestion to add full with option the the News Web-part and to give it the high modern feel of the Hero Web-part.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow better embed function (not iframe)

    Allow us to have the ability to embed a twitter feed into the page. I tried the Embed part, but it would only allow iframe embed and not the embed code provided by twitter. This would be awesome!

    Love the new Communication site template and can really see it changing how SharePoint is used.

  12. Customize banner

    Allow more customization of the banner. It is WAY too big and I don't even know what resolution of image to put in there. Allow us to change the banner size and give us a tip on what kind of image should be placed in there. And if we want to remove the banner then allow us to change the font color or something. You are putting the communication site in far too small a box.

  14. Remove Grey Border around Site Logo

    On modern pages, there is a grey/gray border present around the site logo. This border is not present on classic pages within the same site. This seems like a bug as there's no reason for the border to be present.

    Fix: Remove grey border around site logo on modern pages.

  15. Communication sites lacks of consistent communication and usability

    The flexibility of page creation mostly will overwelm business users and is definitly not markting and communications departments like to have. There goal is to provide fast and effiecent information. Right not the community portal lacks of two things:

    1) Consistency - Any user can create any layout and it will be hard, time consuming and inefficient to create a consitent layout
    
    2) Missing metadata for further filtering and content categorisation
    3) No branding options to speak the tone and voice of the companyThis is the most challenging piece of inconsitent communication because it doesn't allow to speak the voice

  19. Email Digest Subject Line

    The news digest email does not allow in having a "cleaner" subject. When users get the email in they see on the subject like "John Doe has shared "xxxxx" with you. Customers in our organization just want to have the proper title of the email digest and not the name of the person that send it or the shared status. We have corporate communications that do not need to include the person so send the email on the subject line.

  20. Open Links In New Tab/Window

    Throughout the Communication Site experience there is missed opportunity to allow content owners to open links in new tabs/windows. The navigation, hero image, quicklinks, etc. Several of these areas might be referencing external sites or other areas of Office 365 that should be opened in new window so folks do not lose their place.
