  1. Connecting Communication sites to office 365 groups

    We would like the ability to connect our existing Communication sites to Office 365 groups. WE don't want to migrate those sites over again to a team site. Anyone else thinks they could use this option?

  2. 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.

  4. Allow administrators to create a custom Access Denied message

    When a user tries to open a page, document, or site, it is possible that they will receive the access denied message. The end user will generally request access without thinking twice. This makes it difficult for an administrator to determine if the user should get access or not.

    It would be great if admins could create a custom access denied page or message to be displayed when a user without proper access tries to open a page, document, library, or site. This way we can hopefully eliminate a majority of the unnecessary access requests.

  9. 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.

  10. 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”.

  11. 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.)

  14. 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.

  15. 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. 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.

  17. 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.…

  20. 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…
