  1. Remove people picker limits of 30 users

    It seems that People Picker (the list that appears when we share something in Sharepoint and OneDrive for example) is limited to 30 users.

    We have an issue with people picker in Sharepoint and OneDrive. We use this format for display name of our users:

    <LastName>, <FirstName>

    We've about 50 users with Leduc, <FirstName> synchronized in Office365. When we tried to share with these users, if we search with Leduc
    it only shows 27 users.

    If we search with Leduc,
    it only shows 25 users. Some are the same as if I search with Leduc and some names are new…

    • Ability to Start Workflow When Using "Create Item In" from Another Workflow

      I have two lists (A and B) and both lists have a workflow that starts when a new item is created. In list A, I have a workflow that creates a new item in list B when certain conditions are met. However, the workflow in list B does not automatically start when an item is added from the workflow in list A; you must manually start the workflow in list B instead. There should be an option to automatically start a workflow when an item is created in a list by a workflow.

      (I hope this makes sense!)

      • Microsoft Flow - Permission/Administration of this feature

        Microsoft Flow is a new and interesting idea to easily integrate various, High Level process across multiple platforms. However, as an administrator, I feel there are HUGE concerns with allowing anyone with credentials into my environment to be able to create a Flow and have it post to a Facebook, Twitter, etc. bypassing any company's policy/procedure for posting company information into a public/community forum. Just on this reason alone, Microsoft Flow can be a dangerous tool, especially when people are just "testing it out". I feel there should be some form of administration allowed by SharePoint Online Admins to allow…

        • An Integrated Web Based Report Builder

          If a SharePoint Power User/ Champion user would want to know metrics and growth about a site without the need to purchase third party apps. The Report Builder can by used from SP Site Administrator to SP Site Power User to query where site column exists in which library or list. Or else maybe there is a need to find a list of the files that exists in a SharePoint site, maybe break it down to what are checked out files. Any query defined in the Report Builder can be exported to various file formats for future reference. A similar…

          • 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.

            • make use of SPField.Customization to enhance the use of the Taxonomy Field in Content Types

              SspId, TermsetId and AnchorId are saved as custom properties within the TaxonomyField. The SPFieldLink allows to override some of the properties of a field when used in a content type (e.g. make a field required based on a content type)
              If during the merge process of SPFieldLink and SPField you set SPField.Customization as an element not an attribute of the field, it would be possible to modifiy the Taxonomy custom properties per content type.
              Since the Customization Property can be publicly set via powershell, this is a very flexible scenario.
              Imagine having a hierarchical termset, where the base parent term…

                  • 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.

Broken promises about when it will be fixed, and insulting videos about how wonderful it is. On an otherwise high quality E3 installation, the performance of this product with sharepoint is truly dire. My entire team is affected by this.

                          • Automatically Sync All Sites to Desktop

                            Right now, the best way to sync SharePoint sites with desktop computers with Office 365 ProPlus 2016 is to visit the site in a browser, navigate to the Document Library, and click the "Sync" button. This needs to be done manually for each site that the user wants to sync.

                            Is there a way to automate this now, or a plan on the SharePoint/OneDrive for Business roadmap?

                            The desired functionality is that on first launch, OneDrive for Business prompts for the user's login credentials (it would be nice if this was pre-populated for domain joined and/or Azure AD logins as…

                              • Permission inheritance is broken on the file/folder for external users in SharePoint online

                                Permission inheritance is broken on the file/folder for external users as soon as someone invite an external user.
                                But the external user do not yet have permissions to access the file/folder.
                                The external user is listed in the "Access Request" page, under "External user invitations", until the link in the user's mail is used to access the file/folder.
                                If an administrator click "WITHDRAW" before the external user access the file/folder, the permission inheritance remains broken.
                                That's not good ; the permission inheritance shouldn't be broken.
                                At this time the support's answer is : It's by design.

                                • Worflow - Can't save to shared drive, only to Cloud

                                  With SP 2013, we have a workflow action to copy to a shared drive location. However with SPO, there is only a copy to a Cloud option. I recognize that the cloud is the current 'it' thing, but there is a LOT of use on shared drives still and being able to copy to this has value.

                                    • A text with some line breaks of document sets is displayed as single line at welcome page

                                      Even if user type texts with some line break into "Multiple lines of text" column in the document set,

                                        • A portal to get clients

                                          Does Microsoft have a portal to showcase the products/skillsets and get clients? I love and explore SharePoint and would to know if there any portal or link in SharePoint or Microsoft where people can get their own projects sold? Would like to promote usage of SharePoint as well get custom business requirements done in the fastest and simplest way.
