  1. Enable renaming the site collection URLs

    Currently the site collection URLs are fixed as https://tenant.sharepoint.com and cannot be changed. This does not fit with flexible cloud-based solutions - business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, rebranding etc). While it may not be possible to change it so that entirely custom domains are used (eg contoso.com, instead of sharepoint.com), it must be possible to allow the sub-domain to be changed (eg. newtenant.sharepoint.com)? Please?

    Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, Sharepoint and Onedrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.

      Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now.

      Corporate lifecycle is a real and constant pressure in business, often resulting in a need to rename the Office 365 Tenant. To that end we are working on the solution to change the SharePoint domain URL (contoso.sharepoint.com renamed to fabrikam.sharepoint.com). This capability will also then enable the renaming of an individual site collection (contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/abc to contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/xyz).

      While we don’t have an estimated delivery date to share at this time, we’ll update your suggestion with details as they become available.

    • Remove the list view threshold (5000 by default)

      This limit has always been a bit laughable, and is even more so as we develop more client side applications. In SharePoint 2007 we didn't have this limit and were allowed to make our own mistakes. Now that hardware is so much more powerful, we need this limit removed so that we can build enterprise-class applications.

        We are changing the status here back to “Working on it”, as we are not yet done with all that we want to do here, and as many of you have pointed this out. We apologize for prematurely changing the status to done, please keep the feedback coming.

        The video on https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53861 (focusing on large lists at 42 minutes and 25 seconds) describes some of the changes that we delivered back in the second half of 2017:
        - Modern UI now has a lot of support for adding indexes to large lists and libraries on the fly, reducing the number of throttling errors experienced by our users, and some new UI for browsing through items in large lists with our paging model
        - SharePoint runs predictive indexing jobs to automatically add indexes as lists get larger based on your view definitions, and updates these indexes when you add/update your views…

      • Open Adobe PDF in client application

        Office 365 / SharePoint online needs to support opening PDF documents in SharePoint directly to client application (Adobe Acrobat Pro/DC).

        As of this request, technical support has stated the only way to open PDF files in Acrobat is to download/save them.

        SharePoint On Premise has supported this feature for some time.

        Adobe PDF files are as common and Microsoft Office Suite documents and must be editable directly to/from SharePoint Online without the need to down/save edit, and upload which adds user overhead and lowers productivity.

        • A simple move/copy function between SharePoint Online Document libraries/folders/files

          SharePoint Online Document Libraries are missing possibly the two most basic and fundamental functions in the online portal:

          - A move/cut function, which is missing altogether, both for folders and files
          - A copy function, which although technically exists, is really over complicated for a function which has existed in a much simpler form in every document repository technology since the mid-1980s...

          Currently, in order to move a file or folder from within the online portal between different libraries or even different folders within the same library...well the function just doesn't exist. So users need to either sync the site…

              As shared at Ignite 2017 “hub sites” will include a configurable cross-site navigation control. You can check out that session here: https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53858

              Additionally, there are several SPFx examples (https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-extensions/tree/master/samples) that can be leveraged to build out custom application customizers to support cross-site navigation scenarios.

            • Replace URL spaces with dashes instead of %20

              Please change how SharePoint generates links to uploaded documents and site pages, so that URLs with spaces will replace %20 with a dash instead. Most CMS tools including blogs do when generating SEO friendly URLs. Links with %20 throughout are too difficult to read.

              This feedback site is a perfect example:

              This:
              https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/282887-customer-feedback-for-sharepoint-server

              is easier to read than this:

                • Please let me drag Outlook attachments into SharePoint

                  Something I find myself wanting to do pretty frequently is storing an email attachment somewhere into SharePoint or OneDrive for Business. I want to simply drag the attachment from Outlook directly into SharePoint or OneDrive in the browser. Alas, I cannot. I am forced to save the attachment somewhere (my Desktop, most likely) then either drag+dropping it into SharePoint/OneDrive or using the upload function in SharePoint/OneDrive to get it uploaded.

                  It should be easier than that. Microsoft, please consider adding this functionality to get even more user-friendly integration between your suite of products.

                    • Dynamic Column width for default Title column in SharePoint List

                      Currently the default "Title" column does not have an adjustable width in the new modern SharePoint view only, classic view is unaffected.

                      So if the column contains 1 row and the cell contains very little text the column width will not adjust to fit the width of the text and leave a large empty space, pushing adjacent columns to the right off the screen.

                          • Set "Communication Site" as Root site collection

                            For organisations that would like to use Communication site as their intranet it would be great if you could provision the root site as a Communication site, rather than a team site with a redirect to the communication site.

                            There is a workaround as mentioned here but i'd prefer a Microsoft supported method https://hangconsult.com/2017/06/29/change-sharepoint-online-root-site-collection-to-use-the-new-communication-site-template/

                              Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.

                              It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.

                              Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.

                                  • Optimize Access Request Settings for site owners

                                    Three requested updates to significantly improve the Access Request process:

                                    1) Allow multiple users to receive access requests

                                    Access requests (Site Settings > Site Permission > Access Request Settings) can be sent to anyone with an email address, but it has three critical downsides: 1) you are limited to one email recipient; 2) the field does not accept SharePoint groups; and 3) it’s prone to misspellings of email addresses since the field is not a people picker.

                                    One of the most extreme examples of how this is broken: My company’s CEO needs access to a file s/he has a link…

                                      Thanks for your feedback! The access requests page could certainly use a little love and some usability improvements for both end users and site administrators. We will take a look at these recommendations and update this request when we are ready to begin working on the improvements.

                                    • Prioritize large list management in SharePoint Online

                                      Large list management has to become a priority. Even with the most thought out and careful planning, inevitably something will come up and you need to make a change to a list or library. Once that goes over 5,000 items, it becomes impossible to do anything management related to the list, which actually hinders it's use. Users can continually add files, but you can't do anything to help them.

                                      This has to be addressed in some fashion, whether it is allowing APIs like REST and CSOM to bypass this restriction so they can perform basic administrative operations or giving us…

                                      • Bring Back Script Editor Web Part in "Modern" SharePoint

                                        The Script Editor Web Part has been replaced by the Content Editor (which does a very limited iframe) and the new SPFX stuff. I am not a developer, but knowledgeable in HTML, Javascript, CSS. The SEWP met some very complex use cases (targeted for replacement by SPFX), but also some very simple use cases.

                                        Example: Insert a formatted single HTML button, something that is big, draws attention, and encourages the user to click it to start an action.

                                        What might be just 2 lines of code, has now turned into (what looks like) hundreds of files of deployment, installing all…
