  1. Add a Markdown or Commonmark viewer, like the TFS Server has.

    When a Markdown file (*.md) is stored in a document library, it would be great if the default behavior when opening the link was to display it in a new page with the HTML view of the Markdown syntax. Team
    Foundation Server 2017 does this in it's web view. Currently SharePoint Online opens the file as a text file. Sort of can't believe that this wasn't already an idea in this UserVoice site...

      • Translated web site template

        There is a nice feature, which enables user easily translate website under his/her profile. However when saving translated website as template, the translations are lost.
        Can You make improvements of SharePoint to be able to create new site with translations?
        This feature is very important in global environment.
        Thank you

        • More insight into hybrid search configuration

          Monitoring and troubleshooting hybrid search is difficult and near impossible. Can we get more visibility into the hybrid connection and try to answer some of these questions?
          1) How many items are in my O365 index, internal vs external? Did you know there's a 1M items from an external search limit per 1TB of SPO storage? Am I close? How much do I have now?
          2) Why aren't my items showing up in the cloud search? Is this farm connected? When was the last successful push? What else might I need to know to fix this?
          3) Can I remove…

            • when creating a new file in office 365, offer the option to save to sharepoint

              If i select the 9 dots in the top left corner, i can create a brand new Word document or Excel workbook, etc. But when i choose save as, my only option is my OneDrive. Why cant i save this directly to my SharePoint system, i am already logged in and it would be really useful if i could save to SharePoint rather than what i currently have to do which is save to OneDrive, download it locally then upload it to SharePoint.

              • Upload SharePoint data easily to third party SaaS-solutions

                Customers use more than only SharePoint Online to save their data. They use third party SaaS-solutions.
                Think about a solution to make it easier for them to upload files from SahrePoint Online. We've used OneDrive, but the technology is bad. Now we use WebDAV, but it has too many criteria to make it work.

                • Give the option on the format of the SharePoint email alerts.

                  You recently changed the email alert format from SharePoint. While this new format is easier to read on mobile devices, it also now removes all information which has not been changed, and only shows what has been changed.

                  This is proving to be confusing for many users, as we now need to open the item each time to get the complete picture. For example, if the assigned to is not changed and only a comment is added, we now only see the comment, without knowing who the item is assigned to or when it was due, etc. This information was…

                    Crawled properties from on-premises farms should be added to O365 in Hybrid search (cloud index) scenario.

                    • SharePoint on-prem & Office365 Branding

                      I guess it's curial, that SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 has the same branding possibilities, that the look and feel for end-user could be aligned in a Hybrid scenario right out-of-the-box. Currently, there are different banding possibilities on both platforms and therefore it's hard to get a unified design, without using customizations.

                        • Have the option to choose whether breadcrumbs and quick launch show or not per page

                          when creating a page, sometimes it's helpful if we can design further than only the central content on the page. sometimes it's more visually appealing without the breadcrumbs and things on the top. Templates under look&feel are not flexible enough to allow me to do what I want.

                          It would be nice if it was possible to drag and drop contents in the full page as necessary. Something more like wix.

                              It's frustrating that i can´t store more than 20,000 files in onedrive. the restriction is ridiculous and lookes like that the terabytes of Space is not more as a publicity stunt. Ist that necessary for MS? We have in the Moment nearly 50 units of "365 E4" Accounts. I can´t accept this Situation.

                              • 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…

                                        • 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…
