  1. 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.

  2. Show number of site followers on Site usage page

    It would be very beneficial to be able to see the number of people following the site on the Site usage page. A trend would be nice, but an absolute number would be a great start.

  3. Hide classic site templates for sub sites under modern communication and group connected team sites.

    When creating a sub site under a modern communication site or group connected team sites, see options to select "Team Site (classic experience), Blog, Project Site, Community Sit", and these all are classic site templates.
    If the root site (communication site) is customized with modern features like, Theme (for corporate branding), Hub site, Hub site navigation, SPFx Application customizer, the sub site created with classic templates fails to render the above modern features. And it is difficult to navigate to other sites from the classic site.
    Either stop showing such classic site templates except (Team site (no Office 365 group))…

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    [自分たちと共有] をサイド リンク バーから非表示にできるようにしてほしい

    Hide [Shared with us] menu from Quick Launch


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 グループ サイトの [自分たちと共有] を、画面左側のサイド リンク バーから非表示にできるようにしてほしい。
    サイド リンク バーには必要なリンクを多数作成しているので、[自分たちと共有] が表示されていると誤ってユーザーがクリックしてしまったり、これは何かといった問い合わせを受けることになるなど、業務上影響がある。
    このため、サイド リンク バー以外の部分に表示させるか、それが不可であれば、[自分たちと共有] 表示を消す機能を提供してほしい

    I would like to have an option to hide [Shared with us] from Quick Launch in Office 365 group sites.
    Since there are many links created at Quick Launch, if [Shared with us] menu is always displayed there, it will affect our business operation running smoothly. For instance, some user might click the menu by accident, admins might receive lots of questions about the menu, etc.
    For…

    Allow us to change the search setting of search box at the home page


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、モダン UI のホーム ページに表示される検索ボックスでアイテムの検索を頻繁に利用中。
    上記の検索内容は規定でこのサイトのみとなっており、テナント全体の検索を行うには一度検索結果を表示させてから再度全体を指定しなおす必要があります。
    ホームページでの検索の設定の変更などはできない動作となっているため規定の検索範囲を変更する事ができません。
    上記の変更が可能になればサイト コレクション毎に用途を使い分けする事が可能になり、さらに利用範囲の幅が広がるため機能の拡張を要望します。

    We often use the search box displayed at the home page in the Modern UI to search items.
    However, the search range is specific to this site only, and if we wanted to search items from whole the tenant, we need to specify the search range as the whole tenant after the first search.
    In addition, we are not allowed to change the search settings at the hope page from the…

    There’s a feature of Recommended Links, but the image icon cannot be set and hard to use.

  11. Google Analytics for Communication Sites

    Hello,
    Would it be possible to link the communication sites with Google Analytics? Or at least to add some metrics in the site administration features. We have built a team site and we would like to see how many visits and to which pages our users click the most and, unfortunately, right now we do not have this option :(
    Thank you.

  12. Communication site ideas

    It would be nice to have a script editor style web part so we could add css to a page and therefore style the page. Also, it would be nice to be able to create a communication based site from the Standard SharePoint create site link.

  13. news digest statistics

    Please, let us know the success of a news digest mail.
    Having the statistics about how many people received the email, how many have read it, how many clicked on a news... it would be really helpful.

  14. Allow adjusting image size when creating a modern page in SharePoint sites.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Modern UI のページにおけるトップ画像の制御機能拡充希望。

    Allow adjusting image size when creating a modern page in SharePoint sites.


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトのページより Modern UI のページを作成した際の、タイトル名を付ける際に領域で画像が設定可能だが、小さな画像などを利用した際に、縦横の幅に合わせる形で表示されてしまう。
    ”画像の”フォーカル ポイントの設定" にて表示させるポイントの調整は可能だが、挿入している画像自体を縮小表示するなどの制御機能が無く、意図した形での表示ができない。
    任意の画像を表示させるためにも、Modern UI のページでの画像挿入時に縦横サイズを制御する機能の拡充を希望します。

    When we add a new modern page to our team site, we can also add an image in the page title area. However, if we used a small size image as the top image of the site, the image size will be adjusted automatically to fit into the default frame.
    The option “Set focal point” can only set a focal point to be displayed but there is no feature to…

  15. Image Mapping (Different clickable parts within an image e.g. a World map)

    Please add an option for image mapping i.e. an image can have several hyperlinks e.g. home page has a big image and clicking on different parts of image takes to different pages within the SP site or externally... This is very crucial esp for communication sites where message is conveyed more via icons/images etc and visitors are not reading so much into text.

  19. Enable choosing the path for Team Site

    When I create a Team Site, I can't choose directly between /Sites and /Teams in the New Form. It is dependent on the setting I chose in Settings -> Site Creation. It is annoying, because it adds a steps whenever I need to create a Team Site with one or another managed paths. It works perfectly for Communication Site, so why not for Team Site?

    Currently it is possible to invite maximum 60 domains to a SharePoint site by using SharePoint Online feature, however, this limitation does not meet our requests because there are hundreds of domains we would like to invite. Therefore, we hope you to increase the number of domains can be invited for each SharePoint site.

    It would be preferable not to be able to invite users in uninvited domains. If you cannot provide us such feature,…
