  1. migrate SharePoint 2016 to O365

    We have a few SharePoint 2016 sites that we would like to have migrated to Office365 but I'm not able to find an easy way to do this. I tried to save list as template to get some of the content there but the data didn't import correctly. There needs to be a way to migrate SharePoint 2016 to O365 fully.

    Thank you for providing feedback. We do have in the plans to bring support for SharePoint 2016 as a source in the SharePoint Migration tool. While we can’t commit to a timeline right now we are working on enabling the SharePoint 2010 first then move on to 2016 based on current feedback.

  2. Possibility to successfully add the new Site Page content type to a custom Wiki or Document library and improve functionality.

    I love the layout of the new Site Page content type, with end-user friendly editing options, super easy and intuitive document and video embedding options and easier than ever picture inserting. It is perfect solution for when end-users (even not power users) have to author wiki pages in a SharePoint site. When inserting a picture, you do not need to choose in which library it will be uploaded and you don't have to fill any meta-data. The same with attaching documents. Even more - Office documents get automatically embedded in the page. Now you can have some text and embedded…

  3. Make one eDiscovery center work across O365 and On-Premise

    With the new Hybrid search options it would be nice if we could make one eDiscovery center that will cover both on-prem SharePoint and O365 and be able to do holds.

  4. Create new and updated protocol documentation

    Having solid documentation allows for detailed understand and self troubleshooting.

    The protocol documents that were done for SharePoint 2010 should be repeated for SharePoint 2016.

  5. SharePoint Migration Batches just like Exchange Migration Batches

    Exchange Online provides an Online interface, in the Exchange Admin Center, to run, manage and track mailbox migrations. In it you define endpoints and upload (CSV) migration batches. The status of these batches, which run unattended, is then viewable from the Exchange Admin Center no matter from where you are. This is vastly superior to the way the SharePoint Migration Tool currently works, as installed on a desktop client.

    With regards to defining a SharePoint Migration endpoint on-premises, from the SharePoint Admin Center, please consider the Azure AD Application Proxy scenario, where you can download a black-box installer which you…

  6. I want the profile picture displayed in SharePoint Online contents to mirror the availability status of the user.

    As is, the profile picture displayed in SharePoint Online contents to mirrors the availability status of the user with a mark, but does not connect with Skype for Business or Exchange Online.
    I would like for you to change this, so that SharePoint Online contents also gets interlinked with the availability status of Skype for Business and / or Exchange Online.

  7. Provide Hybrid capabilities for User Profile and MMS

    While Search with hybrid SSA is getting to a prett neat hybrid story, for UPS and MMS there has been (besides maybe the PnP Metadata synch workaround) no attempts to provide a proper hybrid story. Please work on that if you really want to have a well understood and implemented hybrid story as a differentiating factor compared to other providers

  8. Add Yammer to an existing SharePoint Online

    We are using the SharePoint Online created by Teams and all other cool Apps like Planner, Flow and One Note. However, in order to use also Yammer we currently need to create a new Yammer group (that creates a new SharePoint and so on).

    It would be great if from one O365 Group you could manage ALL apps, regardless where this group was created from. This would enable us to manage our SharePoint integration with Yammer seamlessly.

  9. UX change in Suite Bar for SharePoint 2016

    I noticed that the Suite Bar in Office 365 and in SP2016 doesn't display the user in the top right the same way. SP2016 displays the name where Office 365 shows the picture.
    Would be better to do the same as Office 365 in SP2016 no? Better UX when in Hybrid.

  10. Yammer on-prem

    I hear that MS is committed to moving o365 functionality to the on-prem version yet nothing is ever mentioned about social. We've had to implement a 3rd party social platform because a decent one is not provided out of the box.

  11. Assign metadata to files added to document library using MS migration tool

    The current migration tool works well in transferring metadata already attached to the files (date/time, last user, etc.). There is currently no way to assign metadata required in the destination library to the files during migration, and the migration tool also ignores any default metadata assigned to the destination library (those values added automatically when files are added). You have to either update the values manually or use another tool like PowerShell.

  12. More insight into hybrid search configuration

    Monitoring and troubleshooting hybrid search is difficult and near impossible. Can we get more visibility into the hybrid connection and try to answer some of these questions?
    1) How many items are in my O365 index, internal vs external? Did you know there's a 1M items from an external search limit per 1TB of SPO storage? Am I close? How much do I have now?
    2) Why aren't my items showing up in the cloud search? Is this farm connected? When was the last successful push? What else might I need to know to fix this?
    3) Can I remove…

  13. 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

    While our integration with Microsoft Teams and Groups in the SharePoint Migration tool is not fully complete. You Should be able to point the tool to Any existing Teams or Group connected team site to migrate content into it. I would love to understand more what are the specific parts you would like to see in the tool

  15. better hybrid experiance

    Search integration should be seamless between O365 and local installation. A method for combining navigation would also be a plus. With search integration I'd like to see a better hybrid discovery story similar to what we get with exchange. Even better if I can add a 2016 server and great a hybrid endpoint without uplifting 2010/2013 farms even a bigger plus.

  16. SharePoint Migration Tool: Excluding paths

    A useful addition to the SharePoint Migration Tool would be to support the option for excluding paths in a file share to SharePoint migration scenario. It would be very useful to put an exclude symbol "-" in front of a mapping while building the .csv. In this way you are able to migrate the only what you really need. Example: a library with 50 folders and you need 48 of them. In the current version you migratie everything and in a post migration step you need to manually find and delete these 2 folders. Or I need to add 48…

  17. Support SAML auth on SharePoint 2019 modern OneDrive Sync client

    Our goal is to enable Extranet connectivity for SharePoint 2019 with support for the OneDrive Synchronization client (also known as the Next Generation Synch Client - NGSC).

    During our investigation we found that, while the NGSC worked successfully with NTLM authentication worked, it did not work with SAML claims authentication.

    SharePoint 2019 supports the use of SAML 1.1 but the NGSC does not. The product group is investigating the possibility of adding that feature but currently there is no ETA.
    During our call with MS Support we verified that the NGSC does not even pass cookies;
    However when we are…

  18. Support TargetListRelativePath in SharePoint Migration Tool UI

    It would save us a lot of time and hassle if we could specify the target folder in the UI instead of having to export and edit the JSON file to do it.
