  1. I would like the service to just work. I used Google Drive for a year before switching to Sharepoint. That was a mistake!

    Fist of all Ms is misleading about how much storage you have. 1TB personal- unfortunately you can't share that with your team.- USELESS AND FRUSTRATING! Then you have to break your database into smaller libraries- which would be so bad except the service break every other week and then you have to spend hours resyncing each library. Come MS get this right. This is ridiculous.

    • Reduce the number (hundreds) of times that a login and password need to be entered

      Why do I spend more time entering my email address and password than accessing the many different files and actually doing some work!

        • 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…

          • Found a couple dead links

            Hello and great work guys!!

            Just submitting a dead link notification, I understand the issue that caused this error.

            The links under Technical Details don't go anywhere or aren't actual links and it's just clever CSS.
            1) Learn more about the syntax for formulas.
            2) Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

            Below is the correlation ID if that's needed.

              • Item Picker 201 limit

                Allow for more than 201 items in the item picker when associated with a content type/external content type with more records. It is making SharePoint unusable for our solution.

                    • SharePoint List Validation for Hyperlink Text or Formulas returning Hyperlinks

                      In SharePoint Custom Lists I should be able to validate the text for Hyperlink columns or alternatively generate a clickable Hyperlink as a formula result.

                      What I want to achieve is a column with a choice list of values ex. 1,2,3,4 with hyperlinks which are fixed based on the choice values. Choice column doesn't allow me to do that. Even if I split into 2 columns I can create the link column as a second Calculated column but it seems SharePoint doesn't allow a hyperlink as a formula result so I have to keep the auto determined link (from the…

                      • Provide a Version Independent Link

                        Previous generation of SharePoint and OneDrive had a simple way to retrieve a Version Independent link which has been replaced with "Get A Link" feature which provides Restricted, View and Edit links. However even the Restricted link has a GUID appended after the filename and if I update the file the link does not work anymore, so I'm guessing the GUID is a file version identifier. I complained to MSFT support when the new version of OneDrive was being developed and they said they will have it fixed and in the interim versions the simple version independent link was available…

                        • 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:

                          • 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.

                            • Allow Content Organizer to put docs into Document Sets

                              Currently Content Organizer directs docs into "folders" only. It doesn't recognize Document Sets as target destination. Since we are encouraged not to use folders, it seems a bit odd that Content Organizer doesn't work with Document Sets. Please make Doc Sets available in folders' place.
                              And even better would be that the Content Organizer work with any URL within the site, regardless it be a folder, doc set, page or anything. Let it simply move docs into whatever URL is given in the rule setting!

                              Thanks!

                                The issue with the sharepoint site is that when the site is exported to excel and changes are made the end user when refreshing the page is getting a prompt to enter credentials. This seems to be by design and would like a way for the end user not to get an authentication prompt.

                                  I deal with a lot of people outside of my organization, and need to share PowerPoint and other documents with them. OneDrive Share with everyone does not allow me to share with anyone outside my organization. Our corporate server lets us "share" documents within our organization. Change this to allow us to share with anyone we need or want to share with.

                                  • fix the new doc library experience

                                    Dearest Microsoft - you just released yet another update to SharePoint that I didn't see anywhere on the roadmap...

                                    The new document library experience looks great! Good job. Next time, maybe find a way to clue in your partners first?

                                    Nintex, Infowise, DFFS, consultants, etc - all of these entities have custom forms for lists and libraries that apply special rules to enforce security settings. Many just use javascript on the forms themselves. All of this is worthless in the new experience because users with edit access can edit the properties in the information panel under properties.

                                    I suggest you…

                                    • Block users to work with client application on documents on cloud - i.e. allow only editing in excel online!

                                      We will be happy to send the following important\urgent feedback to Microsoft:

                                      It's important to allow users to access documents online only!
                                      If other users can edit in excel (client application) so we have conflicts and any other error messages will pop-up while someone else is trying to work offline (with client application).

                                      In other words, block users to work with client application on documents on cloud.

                                      We cannot leave google cloud services yet!

                                      Thanks,
                                      Avichai

                                      • Worflow - Can't save to shared drive, only to Cloud

                                        With SP 2013, we have a workflow action to copy to a shared drive location. However with SPO, there is only a copy to a Cloud option. I recognize that the cloud is the current 'it' thing, but there is a LOT of use on shared drives still and being able to copy to this has value.

                                        • Minimal set up for Cloud Search Service Application for on-premise file server.

                                          I want to search files in on-premise file server on Office 365.
                                          I don't need on-premise sharepoint server site.
