  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.

  3. Possibility to successfully add the new Site Page content type to a custom Wiki or Document library and improve functionality.

    I love the layout of the new Site Page content type, with end-user friendly editing options, super easy and intuitive document and video embedding options and easier than ever picture inserting. It is perfect solution for when end-users (even not power users) have to author wiki pages in a SharePoint site. When inserting a picture, you do not need to choose in which library it will be uploaded and you don't have to fill any meta-data. The same with attaching documents. Even more - Office documents get automatically embedded in the page. Now you can have some text and embedded…

  4. Improve Site.LastItemModifiedDate

    The LastItemModifiedDate property of the site object in Office 365 reports the last time an item in the site was modified by either the system or a user. This causes a problem for anyone or any tool trying to do activity reporting to determine the last time a site was modified by a user. Please create a LastItemModifiedByUserDate and/or LastItemModifiedBySystemDate to allow us to distinguish the two.

  5. Created By Column on the Site Contents page

    The new Contents tab on the new Site Contents page has a Modified column, but not a Modified By column. It would be great to be able to see who has last modified the contents.

  6. to fix that huge pile of crap you call shitpoint

    The amount of bugs is insane! Do you even test that code you write. Firstgraders, probably have less bugs than you. Add autosave to site editing, history for edited content, so i dont lose content every time i save page and "Something went wrong happens". Did you ever try to write bullets in wiki? Every time i try to write new bullet cursor returns to previous or next. Honestly, students on their projects, made a better wiki with support for wiki tags and not just three. It's not that hard.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
