  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:

    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…

    • Add Solar Hijri calendar

      It would be great if we can use Solar Hijri calendar in SP without depending (expense and support) on 3rd parties.

        • Word Automation service in SharePoint Online

          Lots of customers in SharePoint Online looking for some automated word document conversion to PDF. Currently this is possible in SharePoint On premise but not in Online (only with 3rd party solution).
          will be great to have native conversion service in online.

              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.

              • Office 365 - Migration sites between two tenant

                It would be nice to have a service/ tool, which would allow us to move sites, libraries, etc. between tenants. This way, we could have a test tenant for testing and populate content to our main prod tenant or move content between a tenant in Europe and Asia.

                • 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.

                  • Public website

                    Let me start with this "I was a great fan of Microsoft".

                    Now the issue: Why in the world would Microsoft remove public sites from Office 365, where every other cloud provider adopting the feature of allowing the users to use their own domain name. What sense does the option to add a domain make in the O365 portal.

                    Why do people go for Office 365? It is just because it supports small businesses to have a collaboration site with a little amount of money. But preventing the users from using their own domain name will surely push them out.…

                    • 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…

                      • Enable MFA for SharePoint Hybrid Config Wizard

                        Currently the Hybrid Config Wizard is unable to accept accounts which are protected by Azure MFA, including app passwords.

                        Please allow the use of MFA in the Hybrid Config Wizard so we can protect all elevated access accounts in O365.

                        • Unified Groups File location path on SharePoint

                          Problem: Unified Groups or Office 365 Groups create a hidden site collection on SharePoint used for file storage. The Site is Accessible to users through One Drive interface. The site is created under the managed path /sites/. It create confusion for users and administration and limit the choices in the namespace.

                          Solution:
                          The sites for unified groups should be created under a new manage path /Groups/ and administration rights should be given SPO admins by default.

                            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.

                                I would like to suggest that blog posts could be presented more visually on the personal Delve profile instead of having to go to the actual blog. This might increase usability and sociability and provide better user experience.

                                  • Ability to add an attachment when creating a list item in new experience

                                    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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • I just wanted to share my thoughts about that the Microsoft Will No Longer Offer A Public Site Option in Office 365 (SPO).

                                        I just wanted to share my thoughts about that the Microsoft Will No Longer Offer A Public Site Option in Office 365 (SPO).
                                        In this case I have to looking for a SP based provider for extra money.
                                        This is not the first time when a service/option disappear from the O365 – of course we got extra storage and another new features.

                                        In the past (in my old/previous tenant) I had a connection between Intra, OneDrive and the Public Site. I used it for SP List (Anonymous) sharing and complete Folder (Anonymous) sharing – without duplications.

                                        • 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.
