  1. Add Comment to word\excel office365 docs online

    Hi,
    We are having huge trouble to satisfy above 200 users that were used to work with Google feature "Adding comment" to read-only files. Google allows users to add comments to Google docs\Google sheets files without allowing to edit the content. Microsoft does not allow users to add comments to Word\Excel Online files if user doesn't have "Edit" permission. Couple of weeks ago we were going live with Office365 files SharePoint\OneDrive and we receive many complaints.

    How can we solve it ASAP?

    Thanks!

  3. Reduce the number (hundreds) of times that a login and password need to be entered

    Why do I spend more time entering my email address and password than accessing the many different files and actually doing some work!

  4. 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

  5. Found a couple dead links

    Hello and great work guys!!

    Just submitting a dead link notification, I understand the issue that caused this error.

    The links under Technical Details don't go anywhere or aren't actual links and it's just clever CSS.
    1) Learn more about the syntax for formulas.
    2) Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

    Below is the correlation ID if that's needed.

  6. Allow Content Organizer to put docs into Document Sets

    Currently Content Organizer directs docs into "folders" only. It doesn't recognize Document Sets as target destination. Since we are encouraged not to use folders, it seems a bit odd that Content Organizer doesn't work with Document Sets. Please make Doc Sets available in folders' place.
    And even better would be that the Content Organizer work with any URL within the site, regardless it be a folder, doc set, page or anything. Let it simply move docs into whatever URL is given in the rule setting!

    Thanks!

    The issue with the sharepoint site is that when the site is exported to excel and changes are made the end user when refreshing the page is getting a prompt to enter credentials. This seems to be by design and would like a way for the end user not to get an authentication prompt.

  9. Choice field, auto populating

    An option exists for people to add free text to a choice field (field below the drop down) if it doesn't exist. In these cases can we make this new comment / word / option auto populate into the choice options?

  13. Display link of file

    It should be possible to have a field that displays the link of a document. This should be added through an existing lookup for example. Users often need a direct link to a document when they want to send something around or post it somewhere. Getting the link is quite cumbersome and well hidden today.

  14. Sync SP Shared calendar with ms365 / OWA

    Our law enforcement agency consists of over 1400 users. Probably 90% of those users use OWA .. no licenses for the client. We also have many units that use SP and have a shared calendar on the SP site. Supervisors would like to be able to see this shared calendar in OWA. At this time the calendar can only be shared in the outlook client.

  15. 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…

  16. One

    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.

  18. 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…
