New Sharepoint.aspx page
The new SharePoint.aspx page that replaced sites.aspx page does not allow for customization. The previous sites page we had added a promoted link to the homepage of our Intranet. Now that our tenant was upgraded folks did not see the promoted link and were not happy. Currently the only way to address the issue is to add a custom App launcher tile. So please allow us admin to at least have a web part zone at the top of the sharepoint.aspx page.

The photos shown in the "News from sites" section are badly distorted unless small images are used on the actual News page. Unacceptable!!!
