  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…

      • 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

        • Pages should allow users to minimize content areas

          SP2010 had a drop menu that allowed users to minimize/restore content areas without editing the page, and it only minimized for that user and until page was refreshed. This seems to have gone away in SPO. On SPO, on non-modern pages, web parts display this menu if page in edit mode, but this minimizes/restores the web part for all users and until changed in edit mode again, which defeats the usefulness of users being able to easily minimize restore without editing the page (particularly for user who don't have permission to edit the page). It looks like modern pages do…

          • Option to hide a wiki page title as a header

            To avoid having %20s all over the place in urls, I usually remove spaces when giving pages a name. However, page names now display as a header for the page. We may want the page header to be something else in any case. Can we have the option of hiding this from view?

            • Bulk check in for documents in the new experience

              In the new document library experience it's no longer possible to bulk check in documents, which makes bulk uploading/editing of documents an incredibly tedious experience, especially when the "Require Check out" library setting still requires an initial check in.

              All that needs to be updated is to leave the Check In/Out options available from the top bar of the library when multiple documents are selected. The options are there for single item selections, so why not for multiple?

              • 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…

                • Allow the ability for users to download files shared with an anonymous link

                  When you choose to get a link and share anonymously, with Office documents, when the user clicks the link all they can do is view it. I sometimes need to share files with external users where I don't want them to be able to edit it, but at least download it for their own reference. Adding this as an option would be really helpful. Currently, if I want users just to have view access to files and be able to download them, I have to use Dropbox.

                  • Pwerpivot Sharepoint 2016 missing functionalities

                    Unlike SharePoint 2010, there is no way to check the "next refresh time" of a powerpivot workbook and it is no longer possible to schedule independent refreshes for each of the data connections in a workbook. That is very disappointing for a new product.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.
                        If that`s…

                        • 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…

                          • Improve the "SharePoint activity" report

                            Office 365 Admins can see the "SharePoint activity" report from Office 365 Admin center.
                            And it shows the "Files viewed or edited" (number of count) for each users and we think that it is not an useful info for admins as it does not show which files or which site collection the file is stored in.
                            We hope that the report can show which site/site collection the user has accessed and how many times they have accessed that specific site.

                              • Add minor versioning functionality to lists

                                Lists only allow for major versions. Major versions signal that the information or data is "production-ready," but in lists, that is not always the case. For example, the default "Announcements" list that comes with SharePoint Online could easily involve the drafting of an announcement that isn't ready for prime-time, because it hasn't been reviewed and/or approved by another author. With minor versioning, SharePoint authors could keep the draft version from being seen and inadvertently consumed by site visitors until was ready for publishing, at which point it could be set as a major version.

                                • Add a Markdown or Commonmark viewer, like the TFS Server has.

                                  When a Markdown file (*.md) is stored in a document library, it would be great if the default behavior when opening the link was to display it in a new page with the HTML view of the Markdown syntax. Team
                                  Foundation Server 2017 does this in it's web view. Currently SharePoint Online opens the file as a text file. Sort of can't believe that this wasn't already an idea in this UserVoice site...

                                  • Improve sync relationship between FIM and SharePoint

                                    I experience this issue occasionally regarding security groups that are members a SharePoint permission groups:

                                    The sync relationship between Forefront Identity Manager (and possibly other user management applications) and SharePoint stops working for a particular security group if the display name of the SG is changed, even if the alias of the SG remains the same.

                                    The workaround is to remove and re-add the SG to the SharePoint permission group following any updates to the SG's display name.
