  1. Communication Hero Webpart Image Rotator or Waffle Type Layout

    I was asked if it's possible to make the big image in the Hero webpart a rotating image with a hyperlink for each picture. It would be nice to have that ability for all of the image areas of the webpart. The work around I have for this is to add a split screen page layout with the Hero part on the right, and an image rotator on the left, but then I cannot get rid of the biggest image of the Hero webpart. A solution to this would be to allow to remove the biggest image entirely, or allow…

  6. The cell with “freeze panes” cannot be normally copied on Google Chrome

    When I open Excel Online on Google Chrome and cope-paste the cell with “freeze panes”, “Retrieving data. Wait a few seconds and try to cut or copy again.” will be paste instead of the original contents.
    If I cancel “freeze panes”, the cell can normally be copied.
    Please improve this function and make the cell can normally be copied and pasted on Google Chrome.

  7. About enable rating control in un-default view

    On Customer list, when I enable the “Assessment settings”, the “rating control” can only be used in default view.
    If I changed the view style, the “rating control” cannot be used and it can only display the “Likes” mark.
    It would be really helpful if “rating control” can be enabled not only in default view, but also in the other view like “Box”.

  8. Allow user to switch back to New Experience

    When the user chooses to "Return to Classic experience," there's no way to change back to New experience, even via the advanced settings for the Library which offers the option to the Library designer. (It won't even change back for the Designer.)

  11. Add a default column which can be customized

    I would like you to add a customizable Created By column to modify user name who originally created the list, because the creator could be a delegate user. We need another default Created By column in the SharePoint Online list to show the original creator.

  12. Ability to change font styles and size in Site Page Header

    Just this year we were given the ability to change the font colours and sizes on a site page so that the headings were not just black, bold, italic etc.

    It would be really great if we had the same functionality in the main Page Name area. We often want to put in a backdrop but we are limited to which one we choose because the font colour for the name of the page can currently only be white. Also the size of the header part is too large and consumes a bit chunk at the top of the page.…

  14. Allow for configuration of Access Denied and other Error message pages

    The current SP error pages, both permissions-related and general error pages do not provide much detail as to why one might be looking at them. There is no way to use the "request access" feature on permission error pages without also giving OWNER access to people in the organization who should not have such power over a site.

    My proposed solution would allow admins to add additional information to the error pages to allow for key contact information per site and site collection, actions the user who received the error could take which is more relevant to them and their…

  16. The file can be displayed correctly even on Excel Online

    I hope that the file on Excel Online which is including grouped objects or inserting images can also be correctly displayed.

  17. Site classification on classic site creation

    In the "Site Creation" part of the settings, when selecting "A classic site" we're facing a "site classification" option.
    Site classification concept is different when comparing sites with groups (tags) and classic sites (policy).
    It was difficult to understand that when choosing the classic site option the classification field was linked with policies. And thus if the policy is not created at the site collection level this option is not showed to the end-user.

    Suggestion: change the name of the field or put a text to explain it. Thus: tell administrator that this option is not activated unless he/she creates…

  19. Be able to customize sharepoint group page URL.

    We initially evaluated SharePoint before purchasing Office 365 and created a group called Office365Evaluation. Later we changed that group name to fit our company's name. However the name change was not reflected in the URL which looks like:

    https://ourcompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Office365Evaluation/

    The Site Heirarchy only allows you to change the url of sub-sites and not the main group page. I recommend adding that as a feature so groups could be renamed without having to create a new group and copy everything into it (which is what a tech rep told me I would have to do).

  20. the count of items and paging

    There’s no such function of Paging in Document Library.
    Even if I defined the count of items on modern UI, it can just display more by scrolling the Scrollbar instead of using the paging button.
    It would be really helpful if the paging button can be added like on classic UI.
    And also, when I group items by using collapsed in Document Library, it only can display one group on modern UI.
    It would be really helpful if all can be displayed like classic UI.
