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 image rotator functionality in the Hero webpart.
Further options would be to allow the script editor webpart on a communication page, then I could just make a table with the images and links, and a rotator, but since adding standard webparts isn’t currently supported, here is my suggestion.

carousel of images with links
Hi, We did a workaround as add Gifs for rotating images. But we cannot add link to all images then. But this is a great idea!
Agreed. The Hero web part would be greatly enhanced by addition of the ability to rotate images. A typical intranet site should draw focus to news articles of which you typically have 6 at any one time. The hero web part draws you in and looks great but is static and will make a site look stale if not constantly updated.
The addition of rotating images would allow it to be used for news articles and will mean a user is drawn into the site - increasing user adoption.
