    Hey Microsoft, I know it's been a busy and confusing year, but we are fast approaching the 2 year anniversary of my first comment on this suggestion and the silence is deafening. I should know, I am.

    Is there any update on this functionality? Surely this isn't a difficult web part to build with all your experience and expertise?

    Would be grateful for an update before we hit the 2nd birthday mark. :) Ta.

    Ok Microsoft, it's now December - any chance of this going on the backlog? Consider it a Christmas present to all your users. :)

    This looks like a duplicate of an identical post, but I still totally agree with this, particularly the accordions - i'm trying to replicate an existing site, not because I don't like change, but because there is no other way to present the information in a clear and concise way. Plus I know that the use of accordions works for our staff.

    I can also see a use for the tabs suggestion on another site that will be due for migration soon, so both features would be fantastic to have.

    Agree that this is a super annoying and frustrating feature that really should be an opt in - have it as a web part if you must, but firing it in randomly will have done nothing for adoption.

    For those that want to stop it appearing on your site pages, you can deactivate it in Site Settings > Site Actions > Manage Site Features. Deactivate "SharePoint Recommendations" and that will stop it appearing on pages when published.

    Do note however that it MAY still appear on pages when you are in edit mode but will not be published on the page. This is weird behaviour that seems to happen on and off to me (why appear at all once deactivated?) but only a minor distraction in the meantime.

    Hope that helps till MS fix this and make it opt in from the start.

    David (January 07, 2020 20:40) - believe me we're all frustrated with the lack of action on this and other topics, but perhaps you could post a comment without the language and attacks? Flagged.

    Adding my voice to this, particularly for corporate fonts. My organisation has created custom web parts for text in our corporate font, but they are difficult to use compared to the built in web parts so it would be much easier if we were able to specify custom fonts and then to allow site owners to set default fonts for their sites.

    This would be an ideal feature for a news site and given that this is being used as an intranet in my organisation will be invaluable as usage increases.

    I also agree that this would be useful for general pages as well as news articles.

    @L White VA - you might be better off using the gallery web part? It has a brick option that's much like the hero web part.

    But I agree this could be useful if some should have links and other tiles are just images.

    Agreed! Also, when I DO turn it off, I don't expect it to then still appear on the page in edit mode though the toggle on the web part doesn't work. This is infuriatingly confusing.

    I also agree with the other comments. I should be able to remove this and it, along with comments, should be default off. I should not have to repeatedly check every time I make even a minor update to a published page that the comments and recommendations are as I expect them to be.

    Please allow us to remove this completely if we do not want it.

    Yes this would be a particularly useful feature, more so in the absence of the ability to schedule the publishing of a page.

    But even after that may or may not be added as a feature, the ability to view as someone else will help dramatically in testing permissions, views and for troubleshooting later on down the line.

    Please consider this for implementation.

    Assuming that this will also include the scheduling of publishing news then I'm really really happy to see that this is being worked on. Is there any update on when this might be expected? (I can then push to make sure it is on my organisations tenant asap once released).

    Unfortunately the Product Team answer fails to take into consideration that the events web part is used on communications sites as well (as others have already mentioned), where using a group calendar would be extremely impractical.

    My organisation is in the middle of migrating intranet sites currently hosted on a CMS, to SharePoint communication site pages. Events are shown for company-wide info (30,000+ employees) so there is no way we are using a group calendar.

    I would ask that the product team reconsider this for the backlog.

    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…

    Why is there a restriction in the first place and not user choice?

    Difficulty I am having is setting a default, but some users may want to open content in a different tab. The usual way they would do this is to hold ctrl or right click, but doing this on a link in a Hero web part opens the image in a new tab! This is bizarre behaviour, there is no use case for that when someone is expecting a web page.

    Please fix this, allow users to make a choice when they are browsing sites. I'm already fielding questions about it.
