  1. 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/msofficesharepoint-msowinother-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.

  2. All classic web parts for Modern Team Sites

    Prior to modern pages, we had many web parts to choose from in SharePoint (Content Search, Search Box, Search Results, Content Editor Web Part, etc.). Some of the modern web parts are cool, but the Content Search, Search Box, Search Results, Content Editor Web Part are HUGELY important and widely used. The search web parts mentioned tie in nicely to Custom Display Templates and allow us to bring back content from anywhere in the farm. The Content Editor Web Part is a staple...it allows us to link to a txt or html file to surface custom content in a web…

  3. Smaller hero web part

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

    We’ve reduced the height of the hero web part when in full width columns, but still maintain as much of the aspect ratio as possible. On a very large monitor this can still make the hero quite tall. Authors could also drag hero our of the full width column, into a one column layout (with gutters) , which significantly reduces the height. How would you imagine it should work differently in the full width, or is moving to a one column layout the right choice for reduced height? Thanks!

  4. Accordions Webparts

    Introduce Accordions & Tabs (In-page) web parts | More Table Functionality

    Accordions help users see only the content they need. Accordions expand and collapse sections of content with a title.

    Horizontal & Vertical Tabs (In-page)
    Tabs are perfect for single page web applications, or for web pages capable of displaying different subjects.

    Tables are very limited. You can't even merge a cell? Enough said.

  6. 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)

  7. Page Level Breadcrumb

    Please enable a breadcrumb for navigating pages on SharePoint. Even if its just for Modern Pages... or Communication Sites.

    Scenario:
    We have our intranet on our main site collection (consisting of 6 sub-sites exc. the root site) and one of the biggest problems I come across from end users is that they dont know where they are.  They clicked a link from the homepage or from a news article, its taken them to the page they wanted to go to... but they have no idea where that is.
     
    The problem this causes is the user cannot find a way…

  8. Modern Team Sites and Communications Sites in SP Online - Would like option to use Managed or Structural Navigation

    We have an existing portal with managed navigation. Team members would like to use the Modern Team Sites and the new Communication Sites, however these come with their own navigation that can be edited directly on the page.

    We are hoping to be able to able to add Managed Navigation and\or Structural Navigation to these type of sites. If publishing could be enabled successfully (at this time it cannot) we would have access to the classic navigation menu.

  10. MUCH, TOO MUCH White Space

    MUCH, TOO MUCH white space on a new modern page. I would REALLY like to be able to have some control over this and other formatting elements on these pages.

  11. 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.

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

  14. Integrate a full breadcrumb in the Suite bar to facilitate navigation in deep collections

    In the top left (in the suite bar), integrate a breadcrumb (like in SharePoint 2010 with the hierarchical folder?) in order to facilitate the navigation in site collections.
    Users are sometime lost when they are browsing a document library and when the ribbon is displayed in the header, they have difficulties to find that they must click the "BROWSE" tab to go back to the navigation.

  17. Organize sharepoint sites

    I'd like to be able to organize the home page of sites i'm following to put the sites I use the most at the top, and group similar sites --for instance, I have several sites that are related to Human resources work, but I only use them occasionally and would like them to put them in a folder or notebook. Instead, they are all listed separately and I have to scroll through them to get to the ones I use more frequently. If there is already a way to do this, it is NOT apparent on the way my sharepoint…

  18. Ability to align images on modern pages

    I'd like to align an image directly from the image webpart.
    This is really annoying that the pages are so easy to create but that you can't control the image alignment on the page.

    Aligning images is an essential.

    Today an image occupies the width of the container it’s in (e.g. 1/3 column). Assuming you could make your image smaller than the column width, what level of alignment would you want? Is left, right, center sufficient, or are you wanting vertical alignment in the negative space around the image (e.g. top, middle, bottom)? What would you expect happens to the space on different break points (e.g. iPad, mobile phone, etc.) Does it go away, or is it somehow retained? Thanks.

  19. SharePoint Calendar views adjust for local time zone

    SharePoint calendars will show the time zone associated with the SharePoint site. Companies with offices across time zones have to translate that and people will often miss a scheduled meeting unless they used Outlook to show current time zone of the calendar item. Why can the calendar check the local computer time and adjust the calendar to display in the proper time zone?

    This should be an option since not every company will want this functionality, but from a UX side, this would help with schedules.

  20. Freeze column headings for Quick Edit Mode

    Would love to see the ability to freeze column headers at the top of the page when a user scrolls through a long list in the Quick Edit Mode.
