  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. 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.

  4. Smaller hero web part

    Hi! It would be great if you could chose to have the hero web part in lesser height.

  5. Enable scheduling of posts for the News Section

    In Sharepoint Communication Sites -

    - 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)
