  1. Full Yammer Integration

    Can we please have full Yammer integration in SharePoint 2016, instead of a half baked work-around that doesn't always work properly. It would be good to have proper views that can be filter based on tags or groups.

    • allow admin to be able to monitor site usage without a third party tool

      It is so frustrating to not be able to know how much a site is being used. The current stats offered in SharePoint 2013 are a joke! 2010 was pitiful, but then in 2013 those were taken away for something that was completely convoluted. Please open up search and usage analytics for people to use to let our site admins know whether or not people are using SharePoint without paying an arm and a leg for third party tools!

      • Support SharePoint Online to SharePoint Online Migrations in the SharePoint Migration Tool

        A very useful addition to the SharePoint Migration Tool from Microsoft would be support for SharePoint Online to SharePoint Online migrations. There are many scenarios where this is commonly needed for some customers who must restructure or realign and be able to migrate from one area of SharePoint Online to another. Just in general as well this would be a handy option to have.

        Could this please be considered as a future improvement to the SharePoint Migration Tool including support with bulk migrations for SharePoint Online as a source. Thanks.

          Thank you for bringing this suggestion to our attention. While the SharePoint migration investments have been focused on helping the on-prem customer transition to OneDrive and SharePoint in Office 365 using the SharePoint migration tool, we acknowledge that there are additional scenarios like the ones explained in this suggestion that are not covered yet. We are currently considering various options to solve those scenarios, but we cannot commit to anything at this point. Please continue bringing great suggestions to our attention like this one.

        • Hybrid Office Web Apps

          We currently have to maintain on-prem OWA server(s) to handle on-prem document previews (even in new Hybrid search), and of course in-browser document editing/viewing. This experience will undoubtedly become fragmented from Office Online as MS adds features to the cloud platform.

          I would really like to leverage the Office 365 Online apps to preview/view/edit documents hosted on-prem. This is really the last piece of the hybrid puzzle for us.

          • Delve Integration

            I would like the Delve UX in my SharePoint onprem environment and also have my onprem events from SharePoint, Lync, Exchange and custom sources added to my company's Office graph. The solution may be Hybrid, but integration should be easy to setup and configure.

            • Support Hybrid Search on premise with a SAML authentication mode

              Allow ADFS users to search on premise on their Online AND Onpremise content. ADFS is the only way to provide SSO between Online and OnPremise environment but cannot be used because of the ACL mapping in the Cloud SSA when returning results OnPremise.

                • Improve Site.LastItemModifiedDate

                  The LastItemModifiedDate property of the site object in Office 365 reports the last time an item in the site was modified by either the system or a user. This causes a problem for anyone or any tool trying to do activity reporting to determine the last time a site was modified by a user. Please create a LastItemModifiedByUserDate and/or LastItemModifiedBySystemDate to allow us to distinguish the two.

                  • App Launcher on prem

                    Bring the App launcher ribbon form O365 to on Prem and allow use to administer what icons/links appear form central admin.

                    This would allow the use of SharePoint as a landing page company wide with links to all corporate applications on SharePoint and external.

                    • Outlook Integration of Tasks

                      The default emails that are sent for an approval workflow are broken. The idea is that users can click on the "Open this Task" button directly within Outlook. But this button is broken (since 2010?)
                      Beside that there is no such button when using Outlook Web Access.

                      Therefore there is no way direktly hup into the according task to edit this approval workflow.

                      This issue should be fixed and the email itself should contain a link to approve or reject this wf directly.

                      • Enable MFA for SharePoint Hybrid Config Wizard

                        Currently the Hybrid Config Wizard is unable to accept accounts which are protected by Azure MFA, including app passwords.

                        Please allow the use of MFA in the Hybrid Config Wizard so we can protect all elevated access accounts in O365.

                        • Allow migration of Library structure but not take content. Popular request from customers

                          Third party tools such as ShareGate and Metalogix allows the customer to migrate libraries with an option (setting) to leave behind the content. This is very common request from our customers needing to cleanup sites/content before migration but allows the migration of site structure. I have been asked if this is possible many time and I can only recomment using a 3rd party tool. This would be a great addition to our migration tool.

                          • Lower the permission requirements to view Site Usage Reports

                            At present, you need Full Control to view Site Usage Reports. This seems unnecessary to view what is an on-demand obfuscated report. It should be a case of granting someone ‘View Web Analytics Data - View reports on Web site usage’ permission rather than resorting to Full Control just so a VIP can see how his site is used.

                              Currently, custom properties from an on-prem farm, like site columns in a site, are only visible to the search service account in O365. Global admins, SharePoint admins, cannot see these properties and cannot access them until they are added to managed properties.

                                        Thank you for providing feedback. While we can’t commit to a timeline right now we are working on enabling the SharePoint 2010 as a source in the SharePoint Migration tool. We will update this suggestion when possible.

                                      • Allow Sharepoint to Open HTML pages in Browser

                                        Our team has been using Sharepoint for years. Recently, we decided to move to 365 Platform as it has better user interface:

                                        Having said that we were disappointed to see that Sharepoint 365 does not show html pages, instead it opens up the html in a text editor.

                                        And if we wish to share the link as a read only, then the link will download a html file (on each time when the link is clicked). Really annoying !!!

                                        • Bring document connector back to Office 2016 for Mac

                                          I am trying to get my company to use SharePoint instead of DropBox and Google drive. I am able to map a drive letter to a SharePoint Document folder on a Windows computer. I can't do this on our Macs. We have many Macs running Office 2016. The Document Connector that was in the previous version of office has been removed. Can you please bring this program back, or give me a way to connect to the document folder on SharePoint.
