  1. New Event Web Part should support recurring events

    The new event web part in SPO should support recurring events for Birthdays etc. We use it to keep track of birthdays in our office, but the new web-part does not support recurring events.

  2. Define section background color in the modern pages

    Please let us define a custom background color for a Section on the page.

    It would allow us to give more "rhythm" to the page content and highlight some content on the page.

    For example the https://dev.office.com/ site uses a light blue "section background color" to separate the "getting started"-links from rest of the content.

    Today modern pages support picking one of three colors derived from the site theme (soft, neautral, strong). We likely won’t be investing in the option to add arbitrary other colors as a section background, violating the site’s theme. For the other suggestions, please open a unique uservoice suggestion (e.g. support section background images)

  3. A way of synching your SharePoint calendar with outlook online (365)

    There should be a way of synching up your SharePoint shared team calendar with your online 365 outlook mail account, so that you can add and edit events from within the app on your phone / in your browser. As far as I can see a the moment you can only synch it with the desktop client which seems a little archaic

  4. Ability to use <frame>, <iframe>, <object>, <embed> on non .sharepoint.com websites to embed content from .sharepoint.com

    Currently SharePoint returns https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/X-Frame-Options header when trying to embed (with <frame>, <iframe>, <object>, <embed>) documents from external websites. The header is set to "sameorigin" that simply means only pages hosted on .sharepoint.com domain can do that.

    So let's see below example:
    1. Company XYZ has an internal domain: xyz.com. Company is using SharePoint and stores documents e.g.: pdf's there.
    2. Company XYZ has an internal technical portal: portal.xzy.com and want's to s embed documents from SharePoint.
    3. Because of X-Frame-Options returned along for any pdf/doc/xls etc document #2 is impossible as web browsers will not allow to do this kind…

  5. Change default setting for access requests from "Edit" to "Read"

    Since there is no existing way to control the default settings for user access requests, and since the default is currently set to 'Edit,' this creates a situation in which a user who may have never accessed Sharepoint before and simply wants to read a news article must instead be granted editing rights--creating a scenario in which many inexperienced users who are only looking to read or download content have to be given the power to create serious, unintentional damage to a page by being granted editing rights. A much more prudent approach would be to set the default permission…

  6. Configuring Search Results view in Modern pages

    Search Results Page of Modern Pages doesn't allow an option to customize the results view, change default scopes or switch to classic search results format. The search is locked to current site and result view format which mayn't be always what users need.

    While the Modern page UI is work in progress, at least, there should be an option to override the search results to default to OSSSearchResults or to an Classic Enterprise center if needed.

  7. Branding sharing email invitation

    It would be great to do some branding on the sharing invitation e-mail message. For example replacing the Office 365 logo with your company logo and changing the color scheme.

  8. Enable/Disable comments on the whole site

    You added a comment area in the new experience pages, then added a on/off button. But i can not disable comments in one time, on all pages ! i need to do it, one per one. please, add a global option, in the site level, to enable or disable this feature on the current site.

  9. Remove restriction for 50 hub sites (or increase it to 500 sites)

    Please remove the restriction for 50 hub sites per tenant (or at least increase it to 500 sites) as there could be many scenarios where one would need more than 50 hub sites particularly the large / multinational enterprise/organisations. For example, Project Management Office (PMO) used to create subsites for a large projects to manage different streams within a single project and would now create Office 365 Groups and I can see PMO could easily use 10 - 20 hub sites.

  10. Allow customizing fonts in “Modern” pages.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    "モダン" ページのフォントをカスタマイズできるようにしてほしい

    Allow customizing fonts in “Modern” pages.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現時点で "モダン" ページのフォントをカスタマイズすることができないため、カスタマイズできるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, I recognized that the customization for fonts is not available on “Modern” pages.

    In order to improve the usability for the pages, it will be great if we could customize fonts on “Modern” pages as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    On the classic sharepoint there is a search box that is very helpful. Please add that to the new look.

  12. Allow mailmerge using SharePoint (and/orOneDrive) based lists and document

    Allow Office 365 Word/Excel mailmerge functionality when the files are stored on SharePoint (Online or on-premises).
    As per: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_sharepoint-mso_winother-msoversion_other/word-mail-merge-with-excel-document-in-a/81cd913e-9a57-4bf8-99ca-a766b57b2531
    The Office client people I know seem to think this is a SharePoint Online limitation, while the SharePoint people seem to think the Office client team need to sort this.

  13. Comment Alerts

    SharePoint site news articles are great with the embedded comments section. I would ask and recommend that there be some sort of notifier/alert to the original comment poster when someone else responds to it. This would help keep conversations going forward. It's rather hard to find your original comments when there are many comment posts.

  14. Add event registration to Communication Sites

    While I love being able to create events easily in SP Communication sites (and love that users can add them to their calendars), not having the ability to have users register for limited capacity events means we have to duplicate the information or abandon the events in SP all together.

  15. Add Article Tagging to the Modern News Feature

    It would be great to tag News posts/articles by category (e.g., training, motivational, announcement, etc.). Users could then refine by category to see all articles under that tag.

  17. Add a feature to enable site level metadata and default values

    A challenge to adoption and use of metadata is getting users to fill in values consistently. There are many scenarios that would benefit from being able to define a value for metadata at the site level and have that automatically push down to all documents/items in that site Examples for the type of metadata that could be set centrally are project name, IDs from ERP systems, commercial sensitivity etc - all of those would be good to filter in search refiners. Content types could deal with this, but use of content types has its own limitations which currently require custom…

  18. Two-Way-Sync between SharePoint and Excel

    It should be feasible to sync updates from Excel to SharePoint Online list. We can import the Excel sheet to a SharePoint Online list or export a SharePoint list to Excel file. However, the sync between them is one-way.

    Changes made in the SharePoint list can be written to Excel, but any changes that we make in Excel won't written to SharePoint list automatically.

  19. Customizing Column Width

    Modern lists seem to have an unmodifiable min width (even with JSON). Also, manually adjusted column widths reset upon refresh.

    It seems many are asking for customizable and SET column widths (similar to setting widths for web parts would be satisfactory or even allow JSON to alter).

    The excessive white space and scrolling right is problematic and inefficient.

  20. Wiki link functionality in modern pages

    When editing text blocks in a modern web pages, I'd like to use the wiki link code [[New Page Here]] and have the same functionality, meaning that when saved I can click the "New Page Here" link and have a new page be created automatically with the original link going to the new page.
