  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:

    WEB

    https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/mysitename/_vti_bin/owssvr.dll?XMLDATA=1&List={BF80F884-1DDC-4B28-B088-4F8A60F410C2}&View={8A06B7A1-44A1-4082-88FB-A88899D69303}&RowLimit=0&RootFolder=%2fsites%2fmysitename%2fLists%2fmylistname

    RootFolder=/sites/mysitename/Lists/mylistname

    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…

    • exce

      Improve Excel when editing online versus using Excel. Currently either important functions are missing (too many to list) or it works slowly. I usually can only go 5 minutes before I 'edit in excel'. That's all well and good, but editing in excel turns off the multiple editors function.

      • Depricated Report Indicators Still Visible in SharePoint Online UI

        SharePoint List Report Indicators/Dashboards have apparently been deprecated but still are available apps to add with SharePoint Online - this is confusing to customers who see this as a visible option when the feature does not work (Confirmed by support in case number SRX616071993868890ID).

        I received no notification of this feature being deprecated.

          • 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…

            • Integrate Azure RMS with sharing features

              SharePoint Online has a feature by which you can invite a user to view a document, whether the user is internal or external. Expanding this feature to enable an Azure RMS-protected document to be shared externally, by adding the invitees to the rights of the document, would be tremendously convenient. In general, integrating RMS with SharePoint is becoming an increasingly-requested feature by many customers.

              • Office 365 グループの [ファイル] 上のアイテムを外部ユーザーへ共有する機能

                Office 365 グループの [ファイル] 上のアイテムを外部ユーザーへ共有する機能を実装してください。

                Office 365 グループのサイト コレクションに Set-SPOSite の-SharingCapability パラメーターを使用して、外部共有の設定を行うと以下のエラーメッセージが表示され外部共有の設定ができません。

                <エラーメッセージ>
                "このタイプのサイト コレクションに有効なパラメーターは、'-Identity'、'-StorageQuota'、'-StorageWarningLevel'、'-LockState'、'-SharingCapability' だけです。"

                また、同様にブラウザー上で Office 365 グループの [ファイル] 上のアイテムを外部ユーザーへ共有しようとすると、以下のメッセージが表示され外部共有が行えません。
                <エラーメッセージ>
                組織のポリシーで、これらのユーザーとの共有が許可されていません。有効するには、Office 365 管理センターの [外部共有] に移動します。

                現在は、Office 365 グループの [ファイル] 上のアイテムを外部ユーザーへ共有する機能が実装されていない状況ですので、外部共有を有効にする機能を実装することを検討してください。

                • Comment on Yammer from Delve blog (Thumbnail not appearing)

                  The thumbnail of the Delve blog posted on the Yammer network is not being displayed/previewed. I understand that this is by 'design' as per described by the Yammer team:
                  Cause: If a page isn't publicly accessible, we can't scrape a preview of the data.
                  Resolution: Yammer uses an internal service to visit the page and if this internal service cannot reach the page at an object’s URL (because it’s behind a firewall or requires authentication), we cannot gather a preview of the data. This is by-design.

                  It would provide a better integration if Yammer would allow scrapping of Delve images…

                  • A portal to get clients

                    Does Microsoft have a portal to showcase the products/skillsets and get clients? I love and explore SharePoint and would to know if there any portal or link in SharePoint or Microsoft where people can get their own projects sold? Would like to promote usage of SharePoint as well get custom business requirements done in the fastest and simplest way.

                    • Have the option to choose whether breadcrumbs and quick launch show or not per page

                      when creating a page, sometimes it's helpful if we can design further than only the central content on the page. sometimes it's more visually appealing without the breadcrumbs and things on the top. Templates under look&feel are not flexible enough to allow me to do what I want.

                      It would be nice if it was possible to drag and drop contents in the full page as necessary. Something more like wix.

                          • 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.

                            • 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…

                              • 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.

                                  • 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!

                                    • Give the option on the format of the SharePoint email alerts.

                                      You recently changed the email alert format from SharePoint. While this new format is easier to read on mobile devices, it also now removes all information which has not been changed, and only shows what has been changed.

                                      This is proving to be confusing for many users, as we now need to open the item each time to get the complete picture. For example, if the assigned to is not changed and only a comment is added, we now only see the comment, without knowing who the item is assigned to or when it was due, etc. This information was…

                                      • 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…

                                        • Cross site column lookup on lists

                                          Why we cannot add lookup columns between sub-sites? That would be great! Also, cross site workflows without 3rd party plugins. Thanks!
