    Desperately need a placeholder on left side (for languages with dominant left-to-right reading) of Communication sites. This would act as 'local' navigation for items that nest under site's existing visible horizontal navigation. Current approach of only having this navigation available in drop down is very poor usability; users cannot easily see related content nor orient themselves within the site without the clear visible signposts local navigation provides. While 'related pages' can be pulled onto the page canvas via highlighted content web part or other approaches, this is not the same as having proper 'local' navigation in a site.
    I also agree with Saravana about the need for placeholder for breadcrumbs as these provide similar signposts for users as 'local' navigation.

    Further to Simon's suggestion, metadata (e.g. Title, description which are OOB metadata) recorded in file properties in the library where images are stored should automatically populate image details when presented in gallery. It's crazy that this information must be re-entered manually for every picture included in the gallery.
    Ideally, the image gallery needs to work same/similar to document library or list web part, but using the cool gallery layout options rather than those available in doc library and list web part

    In addition to or as an alternative to removing the 'See all' link would be to allow for the link to be customised to change the text, e.g. All news; All events + point the link to a page that has been set up to display the desired content (e.g. via a custom search). One key reason for wanting to customise the text is to help screen reader users who may have their reader set to just read out the links on the page. On a typical home page 'See all' maybe repeated multiple times if the page has Corporate news, local news, events, recent documents etc. Having 'See all repeated multiple times is as bad as having multiple 'click here' links on a page for screen reader users

    Additional typical properties such as Photographer, date taken, location and expanded description should also come from file properties in library. Page creators should be able to choose which of these display 'on page' for users and also (optionally) as text 'on hover/focus'. While I'm sure clever folk have managed to come up with a JSON solution for this (I think Chris Kent might have created something similar) typical page creators don't know how to format with JSON and just want a web part that works 'plug and play'.

    It looks like this has been implemented as of May 2020. I'm on target release so not sure if this available generally yet.

    Agree with Marjie this is needed. Site usage only shows figures for last 7 days (and then only for top 25 or so documents). If you are not religiously capturing this information weekly, it's impossible to know how your pages are tracking. Many of us are not permitted to use third party web stats solutions in our O365 tenancies and nor are do we have access to Office 365 admin where we just might be able to get data like this. This basic information should be available in the front end of SharePoint and be easy to discover and download for further analysis.

    In response to the comment from the Sites Product Team about the ability to use CAML syntax - most of my users have absolutely no clue about how to form queries using text alone. They need WYSIWYG controls that allow them to structure their queries, choosing between AND, OR, or a combination thereof . Please prioritise this one to the top of the backlog

    Please also add a 'Sites that I'm a MEMBER' - A couple of other posters have suggested the inclusion of sites a user is 'has access' to, but this isn't all that helpful in organisations where most SharePoint sites can be accessed 'read only' by all users. Including a group that provides access to sites people are members of (aka on which they have 'edit' access) would move the SharePoint page toward being something like an 'author dashboard' This is a really important user need in the Modern, multi-site collection approach and quite critical where SharePoint is used as an organisational intranet portal.

    Update 29 April 2020 - The Site pages library now includes a 'Publish/Republish' button in the library menu. If you select multiple pages with a draft version you can now publish all at once these from the library

    Hi folk,

    you may not be aware that you can still access the old 'Manage site content' interface if you have Site Collection Administration privileges.
    In your browser, add /_layouts/15/sitemanager.aspx to the end of your site address.

    I'm not sure about approvals, but I was able to batch publish multiple pages (after I had updated metadata in the Site Pages library) and nothing untoward happened to my Modern pages.

    I still agree that the Modern interface needs a control that allows the publishing of multiple pages.

    I'd rather my content owners be able to publish their own pages and I want to make it easy for them when they have multiple new pages to release. I have better things to do than to do this for them.

    I have done this using column settings in the library - just set a default value for the column. Granted, this is not a complete solution if your users need to use something other than the default for the batch, but it is at least a start. And as other comments here already suggest it is fairly quick to select all the document and apply after the upload in the Modern interface
