  1. Enable 'Export to Excel' on non-IE Browsers

    We can use the 'Export to Excel' functionality in lists and libraries in Internet Explorer, but it doesn't work in Chrome or other browsers, even though the ribbon button is enabled. Instead, we get errors that look something like this:

    As I understand it, this is because the functionality uses ActiveX. However, in this modern world we know that people are using different browsers very frequently. This should work in all browsers or at least fall back to a CSV export if it can't…

    • Add Solar Hijri calendar

      It would be great if we can use Solar Hijri calendar in SP without depending (expense and support) on 3rd parties.

        • Bring back My Task list

          It doesn't make sense that this option is available on-premise but not on SPO. I would like to know how a user is suppose to figure out all the outstanding tasks on their queue from different workflows and subsites without browsing through each one of them.

          I realized there is email notification and such, but without a full list of outstanding tasks, it's a nightmare to try to prioritize the tasks.

          I would like to know why this was removed and what was the rationale behind it. Also, I would like to see real data that supported this decision.

          • Fix "Connect to Office"

            Description of Problem:
            After clicking the Connect to Office button, and then Add SharePoint Sites button, i would have expected to see the site, or library added to either my favorites in windows explorer or the save as menu in a office client applicaiton.

            Steps to Reproduce Issue:

            1. Navigate to SharePoint Online Document Library
            2. Under Library Tab on Ribbon
            3. Click Connect to Office
            4. Click Add to SharePoint Sites
            5. Open Microsoft Word Native Client Application
            6. Click File
            7. Click Save As

            Look for New Site to be Added? Missing Link? Link Not Found?

            Alternate:

            • Office 365 - Migration sites between two tenant

              It would be nice to have a service/ tool, which would allow us to move sites, libraries, etc. between tenants. This way, we could have a test tenant for testing and populate content to our main prod tenant or move content between a tenant in Europe and Asia.

              • Public website

                Let me start with this "I was a great fan of Microsoft".

                Now the issue: Why in the world would Microsoft remove public sites from Office 365, where every other cloud provider adopting the feature of allowing the users to use their own domain name. What sense does the option to add a domain make in the O365 portal.

                Why do people go for Office 365? It is just because it supports small businesses to have a collaboration site with a little amount of money. But preventing the users from using their own domain name will surely push them out.…

                • Limited access should allow users to browse through the structure

                  Sharing a document library in a complex structure does not allow user to go through the existing structure to see, where he/she has access to. It is needed the user know well where he should look for documents.
                  Limited Access permission description is misleading users/admins to think the user can BROWSE the structure. Currently it is almost impossible for admins to setup a complex structure on SharePoint and later decide he/she want invite users inside the middle of existing structure and letting users to browse the structure. Currently the user need to have its own list where he has access…

                  • The presentation of the blog on Delve

                    I would like to suggest that blog posts could be presented more visually on the personal Delve profile instead of having to go to the actual blog. This might increase usability and sociability and provide better user experience.

                      • Unified Groups File location path on SharePoint

                        Problem: Unified Groups or Office 365 Groups create a hidden site collection on SharePoint used for file storage. The Site is Accessible to users through One Drive interface. The site is created under the managed path /sites/. It create confusion for users and administration and limit the choices in the namespace.

                        Solution:
                        The sites for unified groups should be created under a new manage path /Groups/ and administration rights should be given SPO admins by default.

                          In the new experiment, on a list item it is impossible to add attachments to the creation of the item, it can only be done in item modification.
                          Before, on the classic experiment the addition of attachments could be done at the creation of the item with the button "Attach a file" of the banner.

                          • Word Automation service in SharePoint Online

                            Lots of customers in SharePoint Online looking for some automated word document conversion to PDF. Currently this is possible in SharePoint On premise but not in Online (only with 3rd party solution).
                            will be great to have native conversion service in online.

                              I just wanted to share my thoughts about that the Microsoft Will No Longer Offer A Public Site Option in Office 365 (SPO).

                              This is not the first time when a service/option disappear from the O365 – of course we got extra storage and another new features.

                              In the past (in my old/previous tenant) I had a connection between Intra, OneDrive and the Public Site. I used it for SP List (Anonymous) sharing and complete Folder (Anonymous) sharing – without duplications.

                                • Fix the new document library experience

                                  The new document library experience looks great but it has couple of issues.

                                  1. User gets the old experience when clicking on a document set. This is a bit disappointing as we are
                                  suggesting the clients do not use folders and use document sets with metadata instead.

                                  2. The top navigation within the new document library experience does not display the site navigation correctly. I would expect it to
                                  display the same Global Navigation as the Site which the user has just come from.

                                  I hope Microsoft update the document set experience soon so that we can guide our clients…

                                    • Document Deletion Policy in OneDrive for Business

                                      Need the document deletion policy to run as advertised in the MS Article -->

                                      https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Overview-of-document-deletion-policies-55e8d858-f278-482b-a198-2e62d6a2e6e5?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

                                      At the moment there's no way to guarantee it would run, when would it run, even if it runs whether it would delete items as mentioned in the criteria etc. The first time it runs it indexes and expires the data. The second time it runs (which could be in 1 week, 2 weeks, God knows when) it would delete the data - that too there's no guarantee. I mean this is damn stupid & really lame. Why create a feature that doesn't work at…

                                      • Enable Host Named Site Collections in O365 SharePoint online

                                        In SharePoint online it would be very helpful to also have host named site collections. We use this to logicall sign and separate our URL's like for departments or business units.
                                        E.g. https://it.mycompany.sharepoint.com and https://hr.mycompany.sharepoint.com

                                        • Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell

                                          Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell
                                          If not a full suite of Cmdlets (currently SPO's ~35 plays On-Premises 730+), can we please at least have CSOM load all attributes of an object?
                                          On premises I can do:
                                          $Web = get-spweb https://site/web
                                          and get * properties with $web.AnyPropertyILike
                                          There isn't enough room here to paste script I need to do this in SPO
