  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
