  1. Allow default "edit' application either online or client

    It would be nice if we could somehow set the default edit mode either online or in the client, so that a document opens for "editing" either online or in the client.

    e.g. if online is selected for "editing" by the admin, when a user clicks [Edit], the document opens online, and if In Client is selected for "editing", the document opens in the client for editing by default.

    Currently you can select the default behaviour of opening a document for "reading" i.e. Browser or In the Client, but not for 'editing'.

    I believe this function would be very beneficial…

    • to fix that huge pile of crap you call shitpoint

      The amount of bugs is insane! Do you even test that code you write. Firstgraders, probably have less bugs than you. Add autosave to site editing, history for edited content, so i dont lose content every time i save page and "Something went wrong happens". Did you ever try to write bullets in wiki? Every time i try to write new bullet cursor returns to previous or next. Honestly, students on their projects, made a better wiki with support for wiki tags and not just three. It's not that hard.

      • Allow SharePoint calendars to be added to Outlook online.

        We currently have a number of SharePoint 2010 hosted, shared calendars that users add to their client outlook with the "Connect to Outlook" button in SharePoint. This feature when used in SharePoint 365 only adds to the client version of Outlook. Can it be changed to add a link to the online outlook as it seems impossible to add SharePoint calendars from Outlook online.

          • make the calendar overlay easily customizable...ie see description

            Please make the calendar overlay more customizable. At this time, if I overlay multiple calendars and see that I don't like the order in which the events appear on the main calendar, I have to delete all the existing overlaid calendars and start over completely. For any group like the ones I work with where there might be 4 calendars and 2 items on each calendar for any given day, deleting and starting over is not an option, so I have to go in and make sure that everyone knows "Please be sure to look at all items in a…

            • Ability to Start Workflow When Using "Create Item In" from Another Workflow

              I have two lists (A and B) and both lists have a workflow that starts when a new item is created. In list A, I have a workflow that creates a new item in list B when certain conditions are met. However, the workflow in list B does not automatically start when an item is added from the workflow in list A; you must manually start the workflow in list B instead. There should be an option to automatically start a workflow when an item is created in a list by a workflow.

              (I hope this makes sense!)

              • when creating a new file in office 365, offer the option to save to sharepoint

                If i select the 9 dots in the top left corner, i can create a brand new Word document or Excel workbook, etc. But when i choose save as, my only option is my OneDrive. Why cant i save this directly to my SharePoint system, i am already logged in and it would be really useful if i could save to SharePoint rather than what i currently have to do which is save to OneDrive, download it locally then upload it to SharePoint.

                • OneNote template on Document Library content type in SharePoint Online

                  Our Environment: SharePoint Online
                  Users wanted to create a OneNote file like other documents.
                  Currently it is allowed on a document library if we only one Content type "Document" (i.e., we can create word, powerpoint, excel and onenote).
                  If we add additional content type to the document library then it does not show those four document types. It is reasonable because we can specify the templates on the content types.
                  If I want to create a content type with OneNote template then what should be it? Users wanted to create OneNote file on the browser, not using the client.

                    • Restrict self service created MySites (User should not be SC Admin)

                      It should be possible to automatically restrict the User Permissions of self Service created my sites. The users should not be Site Collection Admin of their own sites, because this makes it impossible to control any SharePoint structure.

                      Thanks for suggestions!
                      Best Regards

                        ODFB with sharepoint is completely hopeless and has been for 12 months. it is breaking my business and im very cross about it. Broken promises about when it will be fixed, and insulting videos about how wonderful it is. On an otherwise high quality E3 installation, the performance of this product with sharepoint is truly dire. My entire team is affected by this.

If you want to overwrite this video with an updated one, you can do so ONLY IF you remember what filename it was uploaded as originally. How do I find that out? It's not shown anywhere.

                            • Automatically Sync All Sites to Desktop

                              Right now, the best way to sync SharePoint sites with desktop computers with Office 365 ProPlus 2016 is to visit the site in a browser, navigate to the Document Library, and click the "Sync" button. This needs to be done manually for each site that the user wants to sync.

                              Is there a way to automate this now, or a plan on the SharePoint/OneDrive for Business roadmap?

                              The desired functionality is that on first launch, OneDrive for Business prompts for the user's login credentials (it would be nice if this was pre-populated for domain joined and/or Azure AD logins as…

                              • Office 365>SharePoint store: Sorry, this app is not supported on your server.

                                Our Office 365 tenant appears to have fallen prey to a recurring bug (I see it repeated several times over previous years when I search) where many apps on the SharePoint store suddenly and without apparent reason become "not supported" when they've been installing fine previously.

                                  • Enable flow to access document library columns

                                    When you for example create a flow in Microsoft Flow when an email is reveived to put that in a sharepoint folder.
                                    Please add so that we also could add to the doc library columns (properties) so for example I could add the content from the mail in a comment property or the subject line, and so on.

                                    • Allow Query String (URL) Filter to pass multiple parameters

                                      I would like to use a Query String (URL) Filter to filter a sharepoint list. However, it seems that this filter can only pass 1 parameter at a time. When I give multiple parameters, I am getting "Enter a valid Query String parameter name. Special characters and spaces are not allowed".

                                      Could you fix this issue so I can use this feature on Sharepoint Online version?

                                      Thank you.

                                      • Please make Word Automation Services as Standalone Library

                                        Manipulation on Microsoft Word Documents grammatically are very actual. Microsoft does not support "Word Object Model" on unattended scenarios, and Microsoft always make reference to OpenXMLSDK and Sharepoint Word Automation Services.

                                        There is problem OpenXMLSDK is a library, Word Automation Services is not.

                                        In many cases we developers besides manipulation of docx files, we also need convert them to other word supported format.

                                        For that we have to install Windows 2016, Full SharePoint Server to have ability convert files. You may agree, this is too have for just for conversion tasks.

                                        Please make Word Automation Services as Standalone Library (Even…

                                        • Ability to have multiple locations for datacentre access

                                          We have an international practice but you can either have Singapore or Sydney as your datacentre. Would be great to connect with multiple locations and the closest resource is used based on where people are located. This is the one major flaw of Office 365/SP Online.
