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.
