  1. Limited access should allow users to browse through the structure

    Sharing a document library in a complex structure does not allow user to go through the existing structure to see, where he/she has access to. It is needed the user know well where he should look for documents.
    Limited Access permission description is misleading users/admins to think the user can BROWSE the structure. Currently it is almost impossible for admins to setup a complex structure on SharePoint and later decide he/she want invite users inside the middle of existing structure and letting users to browse the structure. Currently the user need to have its own list where he has access…

    • Enable support for Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) in SharePoint Online.

      CMIS is an open standard maintained by OASIS. Microsoft was one of the original stakeholders in creating this open standard. Microsoft has implemented CMIS support in all recent server versions of SharePoint. Only SharePoint Online does not yet support CMIS. Having this interface would make migration to SharePoint Online much easier as customers could use a tool like OpenCMIS to easily migrate their content and folder structures from their existing content repositories to SharePoint Online.

      • Create new and updated protocol documentation

        Having solid documentation allows for detailed understand and self troubleshooting.

        The protocol documents that were done for SharePoint 2010 should be repeated for SharePoint 2016.

        • The presentation of the blog on Delve

          I would like to suggest that blog posts could be presented more visually on the personal Delve profile instead of having to go to the actual blog. This might increase usability and sociability and provide better user experience.

            • Unified Groups File location path on SharePoint

              Problem: Unified Groups or Office 365 Groups create a hidden site collection on SharePoint used for file storage. The Site is Accessible to users through One Drive interface. The site is created under the managed path /sites/. It create confusion for users and administration and limit the choices in the namespace.

              Solution:
              The sites for unified groups should be created under a new manage path /Groups/ and administration rights should be given SPO admins by default.

              • Ability to add an attachment when creating a list item in new experience

                In the new experiment, on a list item it is impossible to add attachments to the creation of the item, it can only be done in item modification.
                Before, on the classic experiment the addition of attachments could be done at the creation of the item with the button "Attach a file" of the banner.

                • I want the profile picture displayed in SharePoint Online contents to mirror the availability status of the user.

                  As is, the profile picture displayed in SharePoint Online contents to mirrors the availability status of the user with a mark, but does not connect with Skype for Business or Exchange Online.
                  I would like for you to change this, so that SharePoint Online contents also gets interlinked with the availability status of Skype for Business and / or Exchange Online.

                    I just wanted to share my thoughts about that the Microsoft Will No Longer Offer A Public Site Option in Office 365 (SPO).
                    In this case I have to looking for a SP based provider for extra money.
                    This is not the first time when a service/option disappear from the O365 – of course we got extra storage and another new features.

                    In the past (in my old/previous tenant) I had a connection between Intra, OneDrive and the Public Site. I used it for SP List (Anonymous) sharing and complete Folder (Anonymous) sharing – without duplications.

                      • Yammer on-prem

                        I hear that MS is committed to moving o365 functionality to the on-prem version yet nothing is ever mentioned about social. We've had to implement a 3rd party social platform because a decent one is not provided out of the box.

                          • Provide Hybrid capabilities for User Profile and MMS

                            While Search with hybrid SSA is getting to a prett neat hybrid story, for UPS and MMS there has been (besides maybe the PnP Metadata synch workaround) no attempts to provide a proper hybrid story. Please work on that if you really want to have a well understood and implemented hybrid story as a differentiating factor compared to other providers

                            • Fix the new document library experience

                              The new document library experience looks great but it has couple of issues.

                              1. User gets the old experience when clicking on a document set. This is a bit disappointing as we are
                              suggesting the clients do not use folders and use document sets with metadata instead.

                              2. The top navigation within the new document library experience does not display the site navigation correctly. I would expect it to
                              display the same Global Navigation as the Site which the user has just come from.

                              I hope Microsoft update the document set experience soon so that we can guide our clients…

                                  I wish a specific user not to download file. My users recognize that if we set the right only to read file, we are able to download the text file, PDF, and pictures although I find the file not downloadable. Nevertheless, the folder itself can be downloaded even if I have Office files within the folder. That makes my users mistake all the files within the folder for downloadable ones despite the fact that the Office files fail and that we can't view the file. I request that in case I set the right only to read, I am unable…

                                    At the moment there's no way to guarantee it would run, when would it run, even if it runs whether it would delete items as mentioned in the criteria etc. The first time it runs it indexes and expires the data. The second time it runs (which could be in 1 week, 2 weeks, God knows when) it would delete the data - that too there's no guarantee. I mean this is damn stupid & really lame. Why create a feature that doesn't work at…

                                      • 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.

                                        • Block users to work with client application on documents on cloud - i.e. allow only editing in excel online!

                                          We will be happy to send the following important\urgent feedback to Microsoft:

                                          It's important to allow users to access documents online only!
                                          If other users can edit in excel (client application) so we have conflicts and any other error messages will pop-up while someone else is trying to work offline (with client application).

                                          In other words, block users to work with client application on documents on cloud.

                                          We cannot leave google cloud services yet!

                                          Thanks,
                                          Avichai
