  1. 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.

        • 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…

            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.

            • Change the OneDrive limits of those I want and need to share documents with; need to extend sharin to people outside my organization.

              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…

                • 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.

                        Newsfeed app is a great start I am using IOS I assume it's similar on other platforms. Features missing are

                        - notifications so will get a message when there has been an update.
                        - multiple feeds. right now seems like you can only see one feed at a time.

                        Thanks

                          Now SharePoint do not have the way to copy the list item if it has the rich text field.
                          Hope to provide the way to create the new item which is based on the original item. For example, provide the company wide news item for the year 2016 from 2015's.

                            • Display link of file

                              It should be possible to have a field that displays the link of a document. This should be added through an existing lookup for example. Users often need a direct link to a document when they want to send something around or post it somewhere. Getting the link is quite cumbersome and well hidden today.

                                Hi,

                                Don't know where this belongs, but i am hoping on a feature to sync parts of a sharepoint library. Our company has over 10000 items. Everyone of us creates views in sharepoint to find the files they need. Basically the files in these views are the ones i would want synced to my computer.
                                Would it be possible to sync all the files in a view?

                                I was hoping this would work by copying the URL to my onedrive for business client, but then the application tries to sync the whole library. This results in the error: 'We can't…
