  1. Freeze Column Headers

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

  2. 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/

  3. Enable Audience targeting on modern page web parts

    It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages. Thanks

    We’re rolled out audience targeting on pages and news posts, and allow targeting content in the news and highlighted content web parts. You can also soon target links in quick links (see the product roadmap for dates).

    If you have specific web parts you’d like to see add audience targeting capabilities, please create an individual request for each part.

    Thank you!

  5. Make the Delve organization chart available as a web part in regular sites.

    The current "organization browser" web part :
    The html view is just a list = not worth the time
    You need silverlight to get a visual presentation but:
    -nobody uses silverlight
    -silverlight isn't compatible with modern browsers (because no one uses it)
    The silverlight rendition in IE is appallingly ugly and isn't responsive.

    To have a functional attractive org chart seems like a no brainer for a service that claims to be "enterprise" ready. It's already built in Deleve so just make it available as a web part.

  6. Anchor Links or Collapsing Sections

    It would be helpful to have sections that collapse, tabs, or anchor links for pages that contain lots of information. Word allows you to create bookmarks, and OneNote allows you to create tabs to easily navigate lots of information on a given topic. It would be great if you had the same flexibility with a page in SharePoint

  7. Allow Javascript customization and CSS branding/theming in the new Document Library Experience

    Please allow javascript customization and css branding/theming in the new document library experience. A custom cross-site navigation is one example that is used by many customers. Also many customers want their intranet branded in a different color but office ui fabric blue.
    JSLink is also used very often. And don't Forget about all the third-party forms solution provider like Nintex and others.
    The new experience provides many advantages, but without customizations it is just not usable for larger intranets anymore.

  8. Replace URL spaces with dashes instead of %20

    Please change how SharePoint generates links to uploaded documents and site pages, so that URLs with spaces will replace %20 with a dash instead. Most CMS tools including blogs do when generating SEO friendly URLs. Links with %20 throughout are too difficult to read.

    This feedback site is a perfect example:

    This:
    https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/282887-customer-feedback-for-sharepoint-server

    is easier to read than this:

  9. Ability to resize images on modern pages

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

  10. A simple move/copy function between SharePoint Online Document libraries/folders/files

    SharePoint Online Document Libraries are missing possibly the two most basic and fundamental functions in the online portal:


    • A move/cut function, which is missing altogether, both for folders and files

    • A copy function, which although technically exists, is really over complicated for a function which has existed in a much simpler form in every document repository technology since the mid-1980s...

    Currently, in order to move a file or folder from within the online portal between different libraries or even different folders within the same library...well the function just doesn't exist. So users need to either sync the site just to…

  11. Title Banner on Modern Pages

    Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.

  12. Remove Get the mobile app and Feedback buttons

    Please allow site administrators to remove or hide this button as we don't want our internal user to send feedback to microsoft instead of internal support team.

  13. Responsive design

    The mobile views are not a solution, so many customers turn to custom design, but I would rather a responsive design be built into SharePoint.

    Thank you for the suggestion! In the past several months, we have released a series of new interfaces for SharePoint Online, all of which are responsive (e.g, modern list, modern document library, modern team site home page, new site connect page, and modern site page, etc.). We also released mobile apps across iOS, Android, and UWP platforms. Hope these help you better work on mobile and on the go. Let us know if you have any new feedback/followups.

  14. Cross site collection navigation

    Current term set based solution is not usable at all in real life multi site collection scenarios.

    SharePoint hub sites ,which shipped earlier this year, provide a configurable cross-site navigation control. More information: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Organize-your-intranet-with-SharePoint-hub-sites/ba-p/174081

  15. Column totals missing in modern list views

    Column totals missing in modern list views.

    This is an often used function, and the workaround to set the list back to classic will only be a temporary solution.

  16. Multilingual Communication Sites

    Including support would be needed.

    My client has a legal requirement for using software, intranets that is Bi-Lingual.

    Communication sites are really great way to building new Intranets quickly but this is a critical feature for adoption.

  17. A Full Featured Forms Editor to replace InfoPath

    So Infopath 2013 is supported in 2016, but SharePoint really needs a full modern full-featured forms editor. FoSL looks promising but the functionality is not clear at this time.

  18. Remove the limit (5,000 items) on SharePoint Document Library Syncing

    The sync limit does not match OneDrive for Business, and adds complexity to the end user experience, administration and architecture of SharePoint. Please remove this sync limit.

    We’ve recently rolled out support for syncing your Team sites (including O365 Groups) and shared OneDrive for Business folders with our OneDrive sync client. You can read more here: https://blogs.office.com/2017/01/24/onedrive-brings-new-file-collaboration-and-management-features-to-the-enterprise/ This includes no longer being limited to 5,000 files in a team site, on your PC or Mac. Thanks!

  19. Dynamic Column width for default Title column in SharePoint List

    Currently the default "Title" column does not have an adjustable width in the new modern SharePoint view only, classic view is unaffected.

    So if the column contains 1 row and the cell contains very little text the column width will not adjust to fit the width of the text and leave a large empty space, pushing adjacent columns to the right off the screen.
