Our main Sharepoint site collects news posts from six hub sites plus the main site. We have categories like Employee Bio, Product Spotlight, Regional Update, and Fun. 

 

When using a News element on the main site, I can not use the category filter across the main site and the hub sites.

So, in practice, this means a post categorized as Fun on the main site and on a hub site can not appear in the same news element.

This forces me to instruct users that they must post some categories in either the main site or a hub site so I can properly display them on the front page. 

 

The specific issue with the News element is this:

News Source: 'This Site' allows Filter by Page Properties. 

News Source: 'All Sites in the Hub' allows Filter by Managed Property. 

I need Page Properties across all sites.
