  1. Allow us to show the specified results in top view in Modern UI

    I would like you to allow us to customize to show specified search results to the top in modern experience. If it becomes possible, it would be easy for users to catch the specified contents within the multiple search results. The reason why we are asking this is we cannot customize the search results based on searching key words in Modern UI.

  3. The planner web part on a SharePoint site should be resizable based on the amount of tasks in a plan.

    Currently, the SharePoint planner web part has a default length which results in empty space on a SharePoint page if there are not enough tasks listed to populate it. This web part should be re-sizable based on the number of tasks in a plan.

  4. unsecured

    It would be very helpful if we could embed unsecured sites/URLs in the sharepoint o365 iframe section. We have numerous "in-house" web apps/locations that we would like to publish, like we do with the local sharepoint server.

  7. Ability to chance the no reply address to something that includes the companies domain name.

    Ability to chance the no reply address to something that includes the companies domain name. Or something to make it unique. We would like to be able to write Mail Flow rules based on this traffic, but we are unable to do this because our traffic is not unique.

    Others agree with this:

  8. Modern Sites Quick Launch Navigation please allow custom width

    Modern Sites Quick Launch Navigation please allow custom width
    currently the Left Navigation doesn't allow expanding the width and therefore the words are cutoff due to the font being different size to the classic site. Also the words do not wrap so it leave the links looking confusing when they are similar words.
    Classic Experience view shows this correctly. Smaller font and with word/line wrap.
    Modern Experience view is opposite, font is too large and no word/line wrap.

  16. Limit the available site designs to the current site template

    Currently the site designs drop down menu does not filter the available site designs based on the current sites site template. e.g. team site based site designs are still displayed even if the current site uses the communication site template. This is confusing for users.

  18. Separate add attachments from "Edit Item" permissions

    In a SharePoint Online List if you want your users to add items with attachments, you are required to give them "Edit Items" permissions too.

    In the future, to add attachments in a list, you should only need "Add Items" permissions or there should be a different check button that will allow user to add attachments without having permission to edit the rest of the columns.

    It would be better and more secure to have this feature.
