  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.

    • Make rename in Teams reflect name changes in Sharepoint?

      When I rename a folder in the Teams app, the underlying folder is not renamed in sharepoint. This is most confusing.

      • 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.

        • 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 continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

            Spring 2018 update:
            - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
            - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

            What we are working on now:
            - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

            In our backlog:
            - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
            - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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:

                    • 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/

                      • Stop opening links in new tab in modern pages

                        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.

                              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.

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…

                                    • Enable Audience targeting on modern page web parts

                                      It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages. Thanks

                                          Including support would be needed.

                                          My client has a legal requirement for using software, intranets that is Bi-Lingual.

                                          Communication sites are really great way to building new Intranets quickly but this is a critical feature for adoption.
