  1. 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.

    While our integration with Microsoft Teams and Groups in the SharePoint Migration tool is not fully complete. You Should be able to point the tool to Any existing Teams or Group connected team site to migrate content into it. I would love to understand more what are the specific parts you would like to see in the tool

  3. 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

  4. Make one eDiscovery center work across O365 and On-Premise

    With the new Hybrid search options it would be nice if we could make one eDiscovery center that will cover both on-prem SharePoint and O365 and be able to do holds.

  5. Deleting the files from sharepoint site during incremental migration

    We are migrating the files form local machine to sharepoint site using sharepoint migration tool and running the incremental migrations after completing the migration. Now we want our local machine and sharepoint site are in sync and if i delete/move file on my local machine same should be reflected in sharepoint site after running the incremental migration. Currently its not possible. is there anyway to fix it?

  6. Sharepoint Migration Tool Wiki page library

    Allow WIki Page LIbrary to be selected from the list of things to migrate from OnPrem to Online.

    Currently, even though we can successfully migrate WIki Page LIbraries by selecting "Migrate All Lists, LIbraries, Pages and Webparts", it does not allow you to specifically select WIki page libraries from the drop down to migrate just that libraries instead of migrating everything.

  7. When doing an Incremental Migration do not overwrite list/library settings

    I noticed that when doing an incremental migration with the SPMT tool that the tool will bring over the setting from the source and overwrite the Destination. Example after migration I enable versioning in SPO but versioning if off in SP2013. When I do a incremental migration versioning will be disabled on the SPO library. It might be useful for people to pick if they want to migrate all setting or leave the destination setting like versioning.

  8. Please make the output of Start-SPMTMigration an object

    The output of Start-SPMTMigration is in sentence form, and while you can capture it, you still have to parse it, which is exactly what you're NOT supposed to have to do in PowerShell.

    Instead the Output of Start-SPMTMigration should be something like this
    GUID Status Reason


    c3cc7804-7164-4a2b-8996-7e51f319dea9 Passed
    efd127ce-68f4-4d85-960d-5384ba561bef Failed The Target Site <URL> does not exist

    I mean, you still have to parse the Reason, if you want, but at least you have fewer hoops to jump through just to remove tasks that are destined to fail from your migration.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Increase Migration Manager File Size limit

    The file size limit in Migration Manager seems to be 15GB, which we have confirmed through our testing and also consulting with Microsoft support. Please increase this limit from 15GB to the file size limit for SharePoint/OneDrive.

  12. Limit scope of what the tool does when only migrating lists

    Currently the SPMT tool does a lot more than it should when migrating only lists or libraries. For example - it changes the site title, activates features (web & site scoped) that are completely unrelated to list data that's being migrated.

    It's rather frustrating when having spent considerable time setting up a site where features need to be deactivated and other settings reverted. The incremental process does the same too. The tool also resets and removes views, as well as surprisingly deletion of indexes that were put in place to assist with filtering in views.

    Thanks,

  13. File with empty date created metadata not migrating to SharePoint Online

    While migrating from file share to SPO using SPMT, if any file "Date Created" metadata is empty, migration tools throwing error "Scan File Failure:The item created time or modified time is not supported".

    I would suggest in this scenario, if "Date Created" is empty it should replace with "Data Modified" metadata and vice versa after migration time.

  15. Offline Mode for SharePoint Migration Tool

    Offline Mode for SharePoint Migration Tool - The SharePoint Migration Tool requires the end user to enter in credentials to an O365 instance. In my scenario, we are currently blocked from accessing login gateways related to O365, but are currently working towards migrating to O365 as a solution. It would be nice to get the insights that the SharePoint Migration Tool provides in its reports without a set of O365 credentials. I.E. if credentials to O365 are not provided, place the Migration Tool into a REPORT ONLY state.

  16. UX change in Suite Bar for SharePoint 2016

    I noticed that the Suite Bar in Office 365 and in SP2016 doesn't display the user in the top right the same way. SP2016 displays the name where Office 365 shows the picture.
    Would be better to do the same as Office 365 in SP2016 no? Better UX when in Hybrid.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. SPMT : add support for SharePoint 2019

    SPMT has been extend to SharePoint 2016, it will be be nice to also extend to SharePoint 2019.
    I have already vote for the both direction idea, but the on premise to cloud direction should be easier implement.
