  1. 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,
    the text is displayed as one line without line break at welcome page
    Our customer would like us to change the design so that line break info is kept even in welcome page.

  2. 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.

  3. Hybrid Office Web Apps

    We currently have to maintain on-prem OWA server(s) to handle on-prem document previews (even in new Hybrid search), and of course in-browser document editing/viewing. This experience will undoubtedly become fragmented from Office Online as MS adds features to the cloud platform.

    I would really like to leverage the Office 365 Online apps to preview/view/edit documents hosted on-prem. This is really the last piece of the hybrid puzzle for us.

  4. App Launcher on prem

    Bring the App launcher ribbon form O365 to on Prem and allow use to administer what icons/links appear form central admin.

    This would allow the use of SharePoint as a landing page company wide with links to all corporate applications on SharePoint and external.

    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

  6. 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

  7. Delve Integration

    I would like the Delve UX in my SharePoint onprem environment and also have my onprem events from SharePoint, Lync, Exchange and custom sources added to my company's Office graph. The solution may be Hybrid, but integration should be easy to setup and configure.

  8. Outlook Integration of Tasks

    The default emails that are sent for an approval workflow are broken. The idea is that users can click on the "Open this Task" button directly within Outlook. But this button is broken (since 2010?)
    Beside that there is no such button when using Outlook Web Access.

    Therefore there is no way direktly hup into the according task to edit this approval workflow.

    This issue should be fixed and the email itself should contain a link to approve or reject this wf directly.

  9. Lower the permission requirements to view Site Usage Reports

    At present, you need Full Control to view Site Usage Reports. This seems unnecessary to view what is an on-demand obfuscated report. It should be a case of granting someone ‘View Web Analytics Data - View reports on Web site usage’ permission rather than resorting to Full Control just so a VIP can see how his site is used.

  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.

  12. 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.

  15. Local Storage Path

    One of the base requirements for the migration tool is 150G of available space or an SSD. Many of the organizations we support have relatively small C drives though plenty of storage on other attached storage. The migration tool seems to error out if the C drive has < 150G of available space. Please allow the admin performing the migration to specify where the migration tool can obtain it required space.

  17. Dedicated Azure Storage ID should be part of each tenant. Not a free ID that is shared.

    Dedicated Azure Storage ID should be part of each tenant. Not a free ID that is shared. We never know how long a large blob storage migration is going to take.

  18. Edit/View MS Project (.MPP) files from Office 365 SharePoint Online

    After Migration we are unable to open MS Project files (.MPP) from Office 365 Sharepoint online. Please fix this. There are some suggestions online on how to fix it but best would be if this was native within SharePoint Online

  19. Support DLP functionality with a Cloud Search Service Application

    Currently, a Cloud Search Service Application does not support DLP functionality with default sensitive types even with an on-premises eDiscovery Center and Compliance Policy Center. Please support default sensitive type queries and DLP functionality for on-premises sites associated with a cloud SSA.
