  1. 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.

  2. Editable publish date

    Provide an editable field for publish date of pages and news articles. As we migrate content from another platform it's important to maintain existing "published" dates

  3. 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)

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Timeline - Gantt View in Modern Experience

    Timeline in Modern Experience Gantt View

    The tasks app should allow a timeline to be created and displayed in the modern experience of sharepoint online.

    Tasks needs to be created and searchable in the modern experience. Just like it use to work in the classic experience.

  7. Fix/Allow calendar overlays across site collections in SharePoint Online

    After migrating from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online, it appears that Calendar overlays across site collections is no longer available. Please make it available again.

  8. hide/disable the Recent Activity in the details pane

    Implement a configurable switch to hide/disable the Recent Activity in the details pane. Should be configurable at the user, library or tenant level.

    Users find it annoying when the details pane keeps refreshing as other users update a list item or document; it makes the details pane constantly refresh and appears to "flicker" causing a poor user experience.

  9. Modern Page Ratings

    Will the functionality to like/rate pages be added to the modern pages? This is obviously available on classic pages and would be a great addition to the modern pages especially within the Communication sites.

  10. 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.

  11. missing search box in modern lists

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

  12. 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…

  13. Support Themable CSS Without Having To Customize The Master Page

    For light-touch customisations, we simply want to use SharePoint Themes and also add our own Themable CSS to sites.

    Unfortunately the only way to add a Themable CSS to a site is add a CssRegistration control to the Master Page referencing the Themable CSS file. We want to avoid having to customise the master page simply to add a Themable CSS link.

    It is contrary to current Microsoft guidance to modify the master page unnecessarily, and in doing so, in the best case we lock ourselves out of any future enhancements as SharePoint evolves that are dependent upon an upgraded…

  14. Ability to hide the Hub Site navigation

    Add the ability to hide the hub site navigation via some setting or powershell.

    The hub site navigation is a list of static links with no security trimming and no way to target an audience. With the introduction of SharePoint SPFx extensions we have the ability to create a header on top of the page. The most common usecase in this scenario is to create a customized menu. However if hub sites are used and you need a customized menu you will have two menu's at the top.

    Here are a few business scenario's for a customized menu

  15. Save the data: SharePoint Online forms(dialog) customized with PowerApps

    Japanese follows English.

    Improvement on Sharepoint Online with PowerApps will contribute to many users as follows:

    We have customized a Custom list item view / edit screen of SPO(SharePointOnline) with PowerApps.

    (Normal behavior)
    Clicking item of "title hyperlink" from default list view, a customized dialog window comes up front.
    I change it to "edit mode" and can edit the item in the dialog window.

    (To be improved)
    However, when I click on the parent (list view) window behind the dialog, the dialog closes unexpectedly and the data I have edited disappear sadly without saved.
    (I need to re-open the dialog…

  16. 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. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
