  1. Stop confusing the end user

    We administrators know our way to KB- and support-articles, blogs and uservoice.com. We know the history of the products and we even have some understanding for the pressure from MS marketing dep. to launch products before they are finished. But here's how the end-users in small (3 users) company experienced their first year with Office 365 Business:
    • Sign in with your Microsoft Office 365 account. That is NOT a Microsoft account.
    • SharePoint is for your shared business folders, OneDrive is for your personal business folders. No, OneDrive Personal is something else, don't use it, it is not part…

    • Enable flow to access document library columns

      When you for example create a flow in Microsoft Flow when an email is reveived to put that in a sharepoint folder.
      Please add so that we also could add to the doc library columns (properties) so for example I could add the content from the mail in a comment property or the subject line, and so on.

      • 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.

        • Allow move/copy from O365 Group to any O365 Sharepoint Library

          Currently you can create an Office 365 Group for a project and it comes with a "Files" section to share files. Well, the group's project is done and you want to move or copy those files to a more public repository on Office 365 Sharepoint. However, there is no may to multi-select files/folders and move/copy from the Groups to Sharepoint. This is a huge need as it exposes the file to the whole company for discovery whereas Groups are usually a limited audience. If you are a Mac user, you don't have the Windows Explorer option either. This should be…

            • Reduce the number (hundreds) of times that a login and password need to be entered

              Why do I spend more time entering my email address and password than accessing the many different files and actually doing some work!

              • Modify the "Site Contents" landing page

                Update the "Site Contents" landing page. It is great that the entire contents list is in alphabetical order, however with the addition of the large tiles, it is hard to quickly view all the contents. I currently have a site that contains 90 apps, and the customer wants to create additional sites so it is easier to see the content. maybe a search functionality that filters the apps as you search.

                • External sharing

                  If we share a a form or a document through Sharepoint or OneDrive, an extremely long link is generated. This link contains information that are not wanted to be visible for the end user (recipient), ie.: Our company is under the same tenant as another company (there are more companies and therefore also more Shaperoints under the same tenant). If we want to share something from our SharePoint or OneDrive, we get this long link:

                  https://companyXYsk-my.sharepoint.com/personal/u_user_companyZ_sk/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?guestaccesstoken=emAJ7KIgDMxHumLcVLdP2b1PT73rO12IvT25vIx6ZM6J4%3d&docid=2_17fd56de6kdw496043.......etc..................

                  From this link you can read:
                  • The name of our tenant (companyXY)
                  • The name of the sharing person (u_user)

                  • Translated web site template

                    There is a nice feature, which enables user easily translate website under his/her profile. However when saving translated website as template, the translations are lost.
                    Can You make improvements of SharePoint to be able to create new site with translations?
                    This feature is very important in global environment.
                    Thank you

                      • Sync SP Shared calendar with ms365 / OWA

                        Our law enforcement agency consists of over 1400 users. Probably 90% of those users use OWA .. no licenses for the client. We also have many units that use SP and have a shared calendar on the SP site. Supervisors would like to be able to see this shared calendar in OWA. At this time the calendar can only be shared in the outlook client.

                        • Easy migrations

                          There should be a way to utilize newest and best features provided by new version of SharePoint without going through the current painful and costlier approach of migration for clients. There have been Times when clients wanted to utilize new features but they were afraid of upgrading.

                            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.

                            • SPS2013: Sites link in top Nav

                              Hybrid scenario with My Sites in the cloud.
                              Waffle menu on Prem has the "Sites" link that points to https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllSites&Source=SP

                              This link is the same as the "OneDrive" link
                              https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllDocuments&Source=SP

                              Suggested change:

                              Have https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllSites&Source=SP redirect to /_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx instead of the OneDrive.

                                • Pages should allow users to minimize content areas

                                  SP2010 had a drop menu that allowed users to minimize/restore content areas without editing the page, and it only minimized for that user and until page was refreshed. This seems to have gone away in SPO. On SPO, on non-modern pages, web parts display this menu if page in edit mode, but this minimizes/restores the web part for all users and until changed in edit mode again, which defeats the usefulness of users being able to easily minimize restore without editing the page (particularly for user who don't have permission to edit the page). It looks like modern pages do…

                                    To avoid having %20s all over the place in urls, I usually remove spaces when giving pages a name. However, page names now display as a header for the page. We may want the page header to be something else in any case. Can we have the option of hiding this from view?

                                        • Have SharePoint able to open CSV files in Excel online or desktop Excel.
