  1. 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.

  2. hide feedback button per site collection

    Feedback button connecting to UserVoice can be disabled for the Tenant. I would like the option to disable the button on a per Site Collection basis.

  3. Provide a 'site classification' property with optional banner/policy

    A common business requirement is to identify sites that contain specific types of information. Providing a text property would enable improved management, search, and maintenance of sites.
    If that property could then be linked to site policies, even better.
    if that property has an optional banner text that is displayed, even more better.

    Uses of this could include, but not limited to: Special events, protected information, archived sites {read-only},

    There is a work-around posted at on the dev-solutions page at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/implement-a-sharepoint-site-classification-solution

  7. Communication Sites Search Default Result Source

    I am using the Communications Site as my company intranet homepage. We have many subsites. When using the search box, users are confused as no results show. Only after going to the results page, will display the option to change the result source to "All Sites" where previously on a regular home page was an option for "Everything" within the search box. Is this possible to change, to allow selection of a result source from the search box on the Communication homepage?
    Thank you.

  11. cannot confirm the Co-authoring editor

    After updating the Office update program of Excel application on local PC, the insider fast program function is applied for the updated build version [build 7766.2092].
    Even the new function of insider fast program is applied, we cannot confirm the Co-authoring editor.
    It would be really helpful if the function can be improved.

  12. Provide an option to integrate skype/yammer

    It would be great if a chatting option would be available (skype / yammer) as an app so that we could collaborate more in real time and teams will know who are online/offline.

  13. Provide a workflow option (one that works) for newsfeed(microfeed)

    Current workarounds for creating newsfeed workflows does not work(list workflow or site workflow using SharePoint designer 2013). It would be better to introduce a workflow settings option similar to other lists wherein "create a workflow in sharepoint designer" is readily available.

  14. Allow the ability to hide the OneDrive tile in the App Launcher in SharePoint Server 2016

    By default the OneDrive tile is provisioned in the App Launcher in SharePoint Server 2016. If there is a need to suppress this tile for a period of time there is no way to do that without using CSS.

  16. Build an easier way to create folders with specific permissions

    I would love to be able to create a quick step to add the same subfolders with the same permissions to any folder in a document library.
    For example:
    I have a new employee: John Smith, and (via a third party app) a folder is created for him in our HR database. All HR has access to this root folder.
    Our HR person goes in to his folder and creates 2 new folders, but these folders need to have different permissions than the parent.Only she and the Director should see these folders. So she needs to break the inheritance, and…
