  1. 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.

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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…

            • 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.

                • 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

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                        • 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.

                            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.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Document Deletion Policy in OneDrive for Business

                                        Need the document deletion policy to run as advertised in the MS Article -->

                                        https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Overview-of-document-deletion-policies-55e8d858-f278-482b-a198-2e62d6a2e6e5?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

                                        At the moment there's no way to guarantee it would run, when would it run, even if it runs whether it would delete items as mentioned in the criteria etc. The first time it runs it indexes and expires the data. The second time it runs (which could be in 1 week, 2 weeks, God knows when) it would delete the data - that too there's no guarantee. I mean this is damn stupid & really lame. Why create a feature that doesn't work at…

                                        • 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
