    As employees are upgraded to higher resolution / larger monitors, the modern team sites show an apparent flaw in its layout, leaving wasted space to the right.

    Either replace the current max-width resolution to support these larger screens, or remove it altogether.

    This step alone will provide more control for laying out the page and I can stop using a custom script editor just to achieve this functionality.

    This then opens the door for more layout options in the future.

    Remove the max-width, or increase the max-width limitation to the section of the page which holds the webparts. Most monitors are upgrading to 4k monitors and the max-width limitation is confusing. Allow the webpart sections to be more responsive for larger screens. Instead of floating the columns left. Allow the to flex and justify space between. This will spread out the white space, allow the webpart sections breathing room and get rid of the wasted white space on the right.

    Please incorporate a full width webpart and allow the sections to have breathing room. Pages become very heavy to the left, especially on widescreen monitors where the right of the page is empty. Communication site layouts are much better in that manner. I don't believe the layout should be a communication only setting.

    This is a major complaint for employees. Retention Policy is powerful and ensures that our data is protected from malicious deletion, or accidental.

    The biggest problem we face is the tedious process of deleting a large library of files within a folder. It goes against standard behavior of deleting the folder, along with any items within the folder.

    Asking an employee to delete all sub files/folders before they can delete the parent folder is frustrating and time consuming. The current work around is not good. I was instructed to disable retention policy, delete the files, and then turn retention policy back on. Defeats the whole purpose of the retention policy.

    Please provide some sort of script/logic to allow employees to mass delete items. For example, the script could do the dirty work of deleting each item one at a time... it could also take its sweet time, but do it behind the scenes for the employee so they can get back to work.

    This is extremely disappointing. Users have the capability to delete files, but cannot delete folders with files underneath. This is a very painful and time consuming process, especially if the folder contains thousands of items.

    I believe this is because the retention policy is flat. If this is the case, cant there be intelligence behind the scenes to delete one file at a time for the end user?

    As of now, the best solution Microsoft provided was removing the retention policy, deleting the folders and then turning on the retention policy afterward. Seems to conflict with the whole point of enabling a retention policy.

    As a User, I need to be able to delete folders with items when the retention policy is on, so that I may continue to have the expected behavior of how deletion works everywhere else in the world and not think the tool is broken.

    This gets even more necessary with the introduction of Tiles in a list. The ability to create a custom Tile based on the list data is powerful and could have a lot of use cases; however, not having the control on defining 'Tile' as the default view makes it pointless. I do not have the ability to tell every individual person to change the view so they can see the data in the way I want them to.

    As a Site Administrator, I need the ability to define the default view type (List, Compact, Tile), so that I can ensure all end users have the same experience when viewing the data by default.

    While group calendars may work, group sites are not the norm. Many sites are not group enabled, thus the solution will not work. This decision leaves a void for the majority of sites, not the minority.

    Use Case: Every tuesday, the same training event occurs. each time, different employees will attend the event. I need the ability to re-create this event every week for the majority of the year. I do not wish to create this for the entire year. Please allow the modern events list to create repeated events to save me an exponential amount of time

    Site owners can organize news posts for placement in news web parts today. This capability was added to meet the need of “pushing” older content to the top, or ensuring a particular news post stays in place while other news posts automatically feed into the system. This works in all layouts, and news source configurations. We’re working on scheduling posts/pages for publication right now, but it likely won’t include an “expiration” date at launch as newer content naturally pushes out older content (that isn’t placed in a specific news slot). If this doesn’t meet your needs, we’d love to better understand the scenarios that require expiration dates. Thanks

    This is exactly what we need. I would also stress the ability to bump old news articles to the top. 3 cases:

    1. Communications team is prepping announce something very exciting to the company. Employees are able to search through pages and steal communications thunder. Make News private until go live date.

    2. Some news is time sensitive and it no longer relevant after a certain date. allow the news to disappear without the work of deleting a page

    3. Some news is re-occurring and to have the items surface back to the top, a new news article needs to be created. allow news articles to be re-published as new news.

    The page looks good on a regular laptop monitor, but many modern monitors are increasing pixel density. 2k, 4k, or even 8k monitors are in the market. These site pages look strange on newer monitors with everything crammed to the left of the browser and so much white space to the right of it. Please re-think the layout of these modern pages to provide a better experience for these high resolution screens

    In modern pages, we open links within SharePoint in the same tab by default, and external links in a new tab. In the text web part, users can specify to open links in a new tab, but that isn’t the default behavior. Similarly, for navigation links, they follow the same rule (within SharePoint, same tab, external to SharePoint in a new tab). This is true of the modern web parts that support linking as well (hero, quick links, images, etc.) This is the pattern we’ve adopted for consistency.

    After reviewing other areas of modern sites, like the site pages library, document libraries, lists, site contents, etc. we did find some different opening behaviors which we’ll review and resolve.

    Can you help us understand if this pattern isn’t meeting your expectation, if we have some inconsistencies within modern pages we’ve missed, or if it’s the other areas of modern sites where…
