  1. Document Deletion Policy in OneDrive for Business

    Need the document deletion policy to run as advertised in the MS Article -->

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Overview-of-document-deletion-policies-55e8d858-f278-482b-a198-2e62d6a2e6e5?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

    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…

      • Enable Host Named Site Collections in O365 SharePoint online

        In SharePoint online it would be very helpful to also have host named site collections. We use this to logicall sign and separate our URL's like for departments or business units.
        E.g. https://it.mycompany.sharepoint.com and https://hr.mycompany.sharepoint.com

        • 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

            • better hybrid experiance

              Search integration should be seamless between O365 and local installation. A method for combining navigation would also be a plus. With search integration I'd like to see a better hybrid discovery story similar to what we get with exchange. Even better if I can add a 2016 server and great a hybrid endpoint without uplifting 2010/2013 farms even a bigger plus.

              • Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell

                Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell
                If not a full suite of Cmdlets (currently SPO's ~35 plays On-Premises 730+), can we please at least have CSOM load all attributes of an object?
                On premises I can do:
                $Web = get-spweb https://site/web
                and get * properties with $web.AnyPropertyILike
                There isn't enough room here to paste script I need to do this in SPO

                • Allow move/copy from O365 Group to any O365 Sharepoint Library

                  Currently you can create an Office 365 Group for a project and it comes with a "Files" section to share files. Well, the group's project is done and you want to move or copy those files to a more public repository on Office 365 Sharepoint. However, there is no may to multi-select files/folders and move/copy from the Groups to Sharepoint. This is a huge need as it exposes the file to the whole company for discovery whereas Groups are usually a limited audience. If you are a Mac user, you don't have the Windows Explorer option either. This should be…

                  • make the calendar overlay easily customizable...ie see description

                    Please make the calendar overlay more customizable. At this time, if I overlay multiple calendars and see that I don't like the order in which the events appear on the main calendar, I have to delete all the existing overlaid calendars and start over completely. For any group like the ones I work with where there might be 4 calendars and 2 items on each calendar for any given day, deleting and starting over is not an option, so I have to go in and make sure that everyone knows "Please be sure to look at all items in a…

                    • Please make Word Automation Services as Standalone Library

                      Manipulation on Microsoft Word Documents grammatically are very actual. Microsoft does not support "Word Object Model" on unattended scenarios, and Microsoft always make reference to OpenXMLSDK and Sharepoint Word Automation Services.

                      There is problem OpenXMLSDK is a library, Word Automation Services is not.

                      In many cases we developers besides manipulation of docx files, we also need convert them to other word supported format.

                      For that we have to install Windows 2016, Full SharePoint Server to have ability convert files. You may agree, this is too have for just for conversion tasks.

                      • Better control of the site theme for SP Online

                        For companies that use SharePoint Online for their intranet portal, SP admins need a way to change the default theme used for site provisioning. We also need a control similar to that used for the O365 theme, where we can override the permissions to NOT allow any user (other than admins) to change the site theme after the site is provisioned. Many companies do not want end users changing the site theme because it confuses end users who access pages on intranet portal sites. Using the SP framework to change the site theme and creating custom permission levels to not…

                        • Have the crawl engine add the basic metadata of the file to the index before crawling the internals of the file.

                          Have the crawl engine add the basic metadata of the file to the index before crawling the internals of the file. We have files that get the 759 timeout crawler error. These files are "invisible" to search and the user can no longer find the files. The problem is also with SharePoint Online but to a lesser extent since there's more horsepower on the SPO crawl engine. Or have a "clean up" crawl that just adds the basic metadata of the files with 759 timeouts to the index.

                          • Sync SP Shared calendar with ms365 / OWA

                            Our law enforcement agency consists of over 1400 users. Probably 90% of those users use OWA .. no licenses for the client. We also have many units that use SP and have a shared calendar on the SP site. Supervisors would like to be able to see this shared calendar in OWA. At this time the calendar can only be shared in the outlook client.

                            • The blog archive is not being classified correctly

                              When selecting any view other than the “Modern View” in “Select View” for “Post Web Parts” at “Edit Page” after displaying the archive by month, the “by month” filter fails and the same posts are being displayed for different months.
                              When setting the “Summary View”, the “Edit Current View” option that is being displayed in ther views is no longer displayed and it might work as a work-around for the symptom, but it makes the option to select a different view meaningless.

                              I would like for you to ensure that the classification in the “monthly” filter works properly.

                              • Provide capability to leverage one content type hub and managed metadata term store in hybrid scenario (or at least sync)

                                Being able to source taxonomies from SharePoint online and utilize them in a hybrid SharePoint 2016 on-premises situation would aid in consistency across content types, site columns, search (managed properties), etc.

                                If it is impossible to consume a SharePoint Online content type hub on-premises, at least provide the possibility of syncing.

                                  If we share a a form or a document through Sharepoint or OneDrive, an extremely long link is generated. This link contains information that are not wanted to be visible for the end user (recipient), ie.: Our company is under the same tenant as another company (there are more companies and therefore also more Shaperoints under the same tenant). If we want to share something from our SharePoint or OneDrive, we get this long link:

                                  • Modify the "Site Contents" landing page

                                    Update the "Site Contents" landing page. It is great that the entire contents list is in alphabetical order, however with the addition of the large tiles, it is hard to quickly view all the contents. I currently have a site that contains 90 apps, and the customer wants to create additional sites so it is easier to see the content. maybe a search functionality that filters the apps as you search.

                                    • 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.

                                      • OneNote template on Document Library content type in SharePoint Online

                                        Our Environment: SharePoint Online
                                        Users wanted to create a OneNote file like other documents.
                                        Currently it is allowed on a document library if we only one Content type "Document" (i.e., we can create word, powerpoint, excel and onenote).
                                        If we add additional content type to the document library then it does not show those four document types. It is reasonable because we can specify the templates on the content types.
                                        If I want to create a content type with OneNote template then what should be it? Users wanted to create OneNote file on the browser, not using the client.

                                        • Enable flow to access document library columns

                                          When you for example create a flow in Microsoft Flow when an email is reveived to put that in a sharepoint folder.
                                          Please add so that we also could add to the doc library columns (properties) so for example I could add the content from the mail in a comment property or the subject line, and so on.
