  1. Allow sharing of documents and folders between sites like dropbox

    I want site A to be the owner of a folder which they manage and keep up to date but Site B and C could also do with having view access to these documents. This is very easy to do with Dropbox but isn't possible with sharepoint. Copying doesn't allow for universal update of files and folders and putting in a link isn't any good either as it doesn't work on onedrive mobile app plus I don't want people being redirected to a department they don't belong too/ don't have permission for.

    Please add this basic dropbox type functionality as…

    • 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.

        • Better control of the site theme for SP Online

          For companies that use SharePoint Online for their intranet portal, SP admins need a way to change the default theme used for site provisioning. We also need a control similar to that used for the O365 theme, where we can override the permissions to NOT allow any user (other than admins) to change the site theme after the site is provisioned. Many companies do not want end users changing the site theme because it confuses end users who access pages on intranet portal sites. Using the SP framework to change the site theme and creating custom permission levels to not…

          • 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.

            • Regarding file downloading

              I wish a specific user not to download file. My users recognize that if we set the right only to read file, we are able to download the text file, PDF, and pictures although I find the file not downloadable. Nevertheless, the folder itself can be downloaded even if I have Office files within the folder. That makes my users mistake all the files within the folder for downloadable ones despite the fact that the Office files fail and that we can't view the file. I request that in case I set the right only to read, I am unable…

                As described here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ronalg/2016/11/21/hybrid-search-and-search-popularity-trend-reports/ Popularity Trend Reports are not available in hybrid scenarios as "the view events are not passed on to the search farm that is in the cloud".

                • Have the crawl engine add the basic metadata of the file to the index before crawling the internals of the file.

                  Have the crawl engine add the basic metadata of the file to the index before crawling the internals of the file. We have files that get the 759 timeout crawler error. These files are "invisible" to search and the user can no longer find the files. The problem is also with SharePoint Online but to a lesser extent since there's more horsepower on the SPO crawl engine. Or have a "clean up" crawl that just adds the basic metadata of the files with 759 timeouts to the index.

                  • The blog archive is not being classified correctly

                    When selecting any view other than the “Modern View” in “Select View” for “Post Web Parts” at “Edit Page” after displaying the archive by month, the “by month” filter fails and the same posts are being displayed for different months.
                    When setting the “Summary View”, the “Edit Current View” option that is being displayed in ther views is no longer displayed and it might work as a work-around for the symptom, but it makes the option to select a different view meaningless.

                    I would like for you to ensure that the classification in the “monthly” filter works properly.

                    • Export Tasks from Sharepoint list to Outlook Tasks

                      I have a few task lists in Sharepoint Online and I need to use the "Connect with Outlook" feature so that the tasks are synchronized with Outlook Tasks. When Office 2016 installed on your PC works correctly, this problem occurs when working with Office 365 in the cloud.

                          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…

                          • SharePoint large document library migration to SharePoint Online

                            Hi,

                            We are migrating content from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online.

                            We have two document libraries in team site with 33436 and 33416 documents in team site libraries.

                            We have one document library with 27010 documents in Document Centre site.

                            We are using following power shell command to migrate data: This command does not migrate all documents, it just copy some data into SharePoint Online. Please let me know what are the other ways to achieve this?

                              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.

                                • Better and more control over SharePoint Look and Feel

                                  I think it would be good if we can do real customisation on color of header, menu, hover menu, quick launch, top navigation of SharePoint sites without having to deal with master page and css. Current Look and Feel feature is just too limited.

                                  • Fix Excel for IPhone

                                    I simply CANNOT edit an excel file from one drive or SharePoint on my iPhone. It NEVER allows me to edit even a SINGLE cell.
                                    If you fix this issue your users may be able to even use Excel.
                                    Very dissatisfied!!!

                                      • Show more then 3 items in Team Site calendar

                                        I know some javacscript for onprem users takes care of this but we are in a tenant and can't adjust the limit.

                                        • Certificates Created by SharePoint

                                          Since 2010 there are a set of SharePoint Deployed Certificates for SharePoint Security Token Service, SharePoint Security Token Service Encryption, and SharePoint Services. When a Farm is Created, the SharePoint Root Authority is not set to be trusted. When a farm is created or when a server is joined into a farm the SharePoint Root Authority could be added in as trusted to potentially mitigate slowness that may be experience per this KB:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2625048/site-slowness-because-of-sharepoint-sts-certificate-crl-checking
