  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/

    • 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.

        • Smaller hero web part

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