    We know wikis are critical to sharing knowledge within your organization! We’ve been slowly building capabilities to share information more easily with our focus on modern pages and web parts. And with that work, we’ve been adding some of the capabilities we hear you want when people refer to wikis (easily add links to other pages or content, add metadata to each page to help people find and categorize it, roll-up content based on that metadata to show groupings of like content, etc.) But we know this isn’t all that’s required to have a great wiki. Many people also want wiki linking syntax e.g. [[]], we don’t yet support that, but we do support ctrl/command + K from the text web part to search and find pages on your site. We’ll be working on adding wiki syntax shortly. We know you also need easy roll-up pages, maybe an index page,…

    The SharePoint Wiki is HORRIBLE!

    1. There are no text macro options for types of content within the wiki page
    {code} this is my code {/code} should display the content in the {code} block with custom formatting as defined out of the box or as defined by the user. Macros could include options for Code, Lists, Display Panels, Contributors, etc. For a list of examples, see https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/macros-139387.html

    2. Ability to create custom templates for Wiki pages. That doesn't mean fire up visual studio, write some convoluted powershell to be run on the server or, hire a team of developers because it’s a “framework”! We are all sick of that nonsense. We want a way for end users to actually create a wiki template for their business use similar to the way they would create a MS Word template. It should not take a senior-level support engineer 3 days to create a custom template in code.

    3. Why can’t we copy and paste an image into the Wiki page? I mean, really?? Lack of this feature is one of the issues killing user adoption for my org. Most of them hate the Wiki and I cannot blame them.

    4. NAVIGATION! For the love of GOD why is navigation so freak'n difficult in SharePoint!! A user has a Wiki site with nearly 600 pages in it. She wants to create a navigation structure so users can find stuff by category. She has 30 pages tagged with the metadata term "Foo". I would think that she could easily create a table of contents page for all pages categorized with the metadata. Except adding a TOC web part results in nothing but broken links. Obviously, someone forgot to tell the developers that a list of broken links really isn’t really a viable solution.

    We are continuing to validate this long-awaited feature in a Private Preview Program with a subset of customers. Although feedback has been very positive we have identified a few things that we still need to address before we start making this more generally available. We appreciate that this is taking time, however providing a consistent user experience across M365 that continues to function as expected is a complex problem. We will provide another update within the next few months.
