  1. 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.

    We’ve enabled custom metadata on pages and news in Sites last year and forgot to mark this complete.

    See the blog about it here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Structure-your-intranet-page-metadata-coming-to-SharePoint-in/ba-p/212555

    If you have additional asks, like the commentor asking for AND/OR control in news filtering, please search and find a suggestion to vote for, or open a new once.

  2. Communication Site: Themes and and branding options missing

    The current communication site template cannot be used for corporate wide communication because there are some important things missing.
    The overall design is only able to speak and represent only the Microsofot CI/CD. The missing branding and theming options makes it hard to be used in corporates because there is currently no way to apply corporate communication and design guidelines to the page. For user it makes it hard to identify the page as an official communication channel by the company and not by Microsoft.

  3. Change page or news page authors

    please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

  4. Fix top navigation for external users

    When sharing a Communication Site with external users (activated with Set-SPOSite -Identity https://... -SharingCapability ExternalUserSharingOnly), they dont see the top navigation unless they reduce their browser window size below 1024px. Below 1024px window size the burger menu for mobile viewing shows up.
    This is obviously a bug that requires immediate fixing.
    Please fix this asap.

  5. Hide page title in the Modern UI sites

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    モダン UI のサイトにおいて、ページのタイトル エリアを削除できるようにしたい

    Hide page title in the Modern UI sites
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI のサイトにおいて、タイトルを入力しない場合でもタイトル エリアのスペースが残ってしまう。ページのタイトルを入力しない場合には、不要なスペースとなるためページのタイトル エリアを削除をできるよう機能拡充を要望します。

    In the Modern UI sites, even though no title is entered, page title area still remains.
    For removing this unnecessary space, in case there is no title entered, allow hiding the page title.

    Thank you for your consideration.
