  1. Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell

    Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell
    If not a full suite of Cmdlets (currently SPO's ~35 plays On-Premises 730+), can we please at least have CSOM load all attributes of an object?
    On premises I can do:
    $Web = get-spweb https://site/web
    and get * properties with $web.AnyPropertyILike
    There isn't enough room here to paste script I need to do this in SPO

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Add estimated time remaining to Migration Tool

              For the most part the migration tool is good and easy to use, however, if possible it would be great to have the estimated time remaining displayed on the app just to give an idea of how long it will take

              • Latest version of Migration Tool lost my migration job

                Latest version of Migration Tool lost the completed migration job so I am unable to perform an incremental upload. Had fully uploaded the data successfully and selected to save the job for future incremental uploads as per documentation online, however, when launching the tool it has updated and has lost my migration job so I can do an incremental upload!!! Spoke with Microsoft support and they are aware of this issue but was advised to provide feedback here, it would be great if this latest release of the app can bring back my migration job as I cannot afford to…

                • Offline Mode for SharePoint Migration Tool

                  Offline Mode for SharePoint Migration Tool - The SharePoint Migration Tool requires the end user to enter in credentials to an O365 instance. In my scenario, we are currently blocked from accessing login gateways related to O365, but are currently working towards migrating to O365 as a solution. It would be nice to get the insights that the SharePoint Migration Tool provides in its reports without a set of O365 credentials. I.E. if credentials to O365 are not provided, place the Migration Tool into a REPORT ONLY state.

                  • Add Popularity Trend Reports support for SharePoint Hybrid / SPO

                    As described here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ronalg/2016/11/21/hybrid-search-and-search-popularity-trend-reports/ Popularity Trend Reports are not available in hybrid scenarios as "the view events are not passed on to the search farm that is in the cloud". Include this functionality or provide an alternative in a future release

                    • Have the crawl engine add the basic metadata of the file to the index before crawling the internals of the file.

                      Have the crawl engine add the basic metadata of the file to the index before crawling the internals of the file. We have files that get the 759 timeout crawler error. These files are "invisible" to search and the user can no longer find the files. The problem is also with SharePoint Online but to a lesser extent since there's more horsepower on the SPO crawl engine. Or have a "clean up" crawl that just adds the basic metadata of the files with 759 timeouts to the index.

                      • Better control of the site theme for SP Online

                        For companies that use SharePoint Online for their intranet portal, SP admins need a way to change the default theme used for site provisioning. We also need a control similar to that used for the O365 theme, where we can override the permissions to NOT allow any user (other than admins) to change the site theme after the site is provisioned. Many companies do not want end users changing the site theme because it confuses end users who access pages on intranet portal sites. Using the SP framework to change the site theme and creating custom permission levels to not…

                        • The blog archive is not being classified correctly

                          When selecting any view other than the “Modern View” in “Select View” for “Post Web Parts” at “Edit Page” after displaying the archive by month, the “by month” filter fails and the same posts are being displayed for different months.
                          When setting the “Summary View”, the “Edit Current View” option that is being displayed in ther views is no longer displayed and it might work as a work-around for the symptom, but it makes the option to select a different view meaningless.

                          I would like for you to ensure that the classification in the “monthly” filter works properly.

                          • Regarding file downloading

                            I wish a specific user not to download file. My users recognize that if we set the right only to read file, we are able to download the text file, PDF, and pictures although I find the file not downloadable. Nevertheless, the folder itself can be downloaded even if I have Office files within the folder. That makes my users mistake all the files within the folder for downloadable ones despite the fact that the Office files fail and that we can't view the file. I request that in case I set the right only to read, I am unable…

                              Why is this behaviour by design? confusing is an understatement - please sort out (you could create another column called 'previously shared with')

                                  • Provide capability to leverage one content type hub and managed metadata term store in hybrid scenario (or at least sync)

                                    Being able to source taxonomies from SharePoint online and utilize them in a hybrid SharePoint 2016 on-premises situation would aid in consistency across content types, site columns, search (managed properties), etc.

                                    If it is impossible to consume a SharePoint Online content type hub on-premises, at least provide the possibility of syncing.
