1. Reverse the sort order for Albums (as on Lr CC mobile).
2. Rename photos upon import or rename existing files (as on Lr Classic).
3. Batch add/edit keywords.
4. Share options beyond just Save To...
5. Edit original file via Photoshop (rather than creating a stacked copy).

Feature requests work better as one per post. Most of these are already requests. Consider voting for the feature requests which have already been entered to give your wants more weight: 

1. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/albums-order
2. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-cc-renaming-in-bulk
3. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/please-develop-a-method-for-copy-and-paste-ke...
4. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/sharing-exporting-from-lr-cc-please-implement...\
5. Raw files will always create a copy of the file because Lightroom does not overwrite raw data.

Thanks - But noting that the the single-topic requests are already many months to a year old, I'm not convinced they work any better.  ; ) 

For #5, I recall a choice in Lightroom Classic where you could specify editing the original file (TIFF, JPEG, etc) in Photoshop.

Anyhow, I do still think the above features would go a long way to making Lr CC immediately more usable for those coming from Lr Classic.  I forgot two more:

6.  Let Lr CC also access local "offline" files.

7.  Allow for a Lightroom family plan where up to five or six users from the same household can have their own installation of Lr CC and sync'd catalog.

Greetings Mikeyjive,

Below is the standard text containing the reasons for the single idea per post. I am just trying to help you get maximum impact for your effort and make sure your thoughts and rational are put where they will be seen and can potential impact features if and when they are implemented. 

"Thank you for your enthusiasm for the Lightroom family of products. For your Ideas to gain more prominent notice and have maximum impact with the team, there are a few things you could do to help.

Ideas, or feature requests as some call them, work like this on the Feedback Forum:  Each individual Idea is single post anchoring a thread. All of the people who have a similar idea and relate their rational will be merged into a single master post that contains all the comments on a single topic.  This has a few advantages:

1. It gives Adobe a place to accumulate votes (by either creating a thread that is merged into the master thread or by hitting the [Me Too] button in the upper right corner. Adobe can see at a glance, search for, and rank the top features being requested without having to search for scattered posts. The engineering staff can read the user’s comments and divine the best ways to implement a given request.
2. By being a part of this master Idea thread, when an Idea comes to fruition and becomes an active feature in the software, Adobe updates this thread. Participants in the thread, those who’ve been merged in and those who have hit the [Me Too] button will be notified by email to updates and feature announcements related to the original request.

You can help us out by doing a few things to maximize your ideas’ impact.  First, if you have an idea, search to see if idea is already posted as a formal Idea. If it is, hit the [Me Too] button and if you like add your individual comments to the thread. Second, if you don’t find the idea is already posted, create a new thread and post your idea for a new feature.  Please keep the Ideas as one idea per thread so that we can merge them with the correct master threads if necessary.  We don’t have a way to merge an Idea into multiple threads so if you make multiple feature requests in a single post, it is likely to get lost in the shuffle, lessening its impact, "

That is only for jpeg/tiff/psd files, not for raw files.
