  3. show images in blog posts from Sharepoint online

    When a post is created with images (uploaded or referenced), they cannot be seen from the email of the post in Outlook or OWA - they just appears as missing images. An inspection of the email doe snot reference the full path to the images.... can this be corrected? This has been an issue for years - 2015 + with MS saying this is an "expected result" - how and why would this be an exceptable result?

  5. Floating Format Text Menu Should Be Docked

    Even though I highlight some text, the floating Format Text menu does not always show up. I have to fuss around with highlighting other areas of text for it to show up. The menu should be docked in a consistant location. In addition, having to chase the menu all over the page, a single location would be much more efficient (muscle memory).

  6. Constant , Anchored Publish Button

    It would be great if the Edit and Publish / Republish button were in separate, constant locations. I will edit a page, perhaps Save as Draft, and the Republish button will disappear (replaced by Edit). Having the buttons switch back and forth causes me to have to take the extra step and time to refresh the page just to use the Republish button. It's inefficient and frustrating.

  7. Allow site admin to limit number of news posts shown in News web part

    I was surprised when I revisited the News web part and realized I can't set a limit on the number of items to show--e.g., 1 or 2. I have a scenario where I just want to show the one latest item in a news digest. Can't do it. Please enable this, and also a shout-out to this one:

  8. Deleting private channels

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    プライベート チャネルの削除について
    Deleting private channels


    ■Description(内容):
    アイテム保持ポリシーが適用されている場合、Microsoft Teams のプライベート チャネルが削除できない。 回避策がプライベート チャネルの非表示にするか、アイテム保持ポリシーを無効化しかないため、アイテム保持ポリシーを有効にしたままプライベート チャネルを削除できるよう機能改善を希望。
    If an item retention policy is applied, Microsoft Teams private channels cannot be deleted. Since the only workarounds are to hide the channel, or to disable the item retention policy, I would like the ability to delete private channels with the item retention policy still in place.

  9. Function to publish items for a specific validity period on SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online で、有効期間内のみアイテムを公開できる機能
    Function to publish items for a specific validity period on SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    情報管理ポリシー タイマー ジョブでは、詳細な設定や動作の指定が行えない。
    有効期間内のみアイテムを公開する機能があれば、公開開始と公開終了の工程管理の負担が減る。
    公開終了時に、"ごみ箱へ移動" など処理を選択できれば望ましい。
    We are currently unable to configure advanced settings and behaviors for Information Management Policy Timer Jobs. If there is such function that can publish the items for a given period, it would reduce the workload involved in publishing and removing items.
    Therefore, I would like to be able to select processing options such as [Move to Recycle bin] for when the designated publish period ends.

  10. Change publishing site url adddress

    I saw we can change the site url address right now easily. But it will be perfect if we can also edit the publishing site collection url in the future!

  11. Approval flow for Wiki-Site lists (Microsoft Flows)

    Currently, approval flows can only be used for normal websites on Sharepoint. We would like to create an approval flow for Wiki-Websites (if changes are made or new sites are created). Right now it only works with workflows which is not user friendly and unflexible. Thanks!

  12. check in

    Why not add a button to cancel check out (next to publish), instead of cancel extraction by the site contenu, to cancel modifications (for a page for example) ?

  13. Automate check in or discard changes, when a translation is created.

    Discard check out, after a translation have been created should be automated
    When you will translate a specific page, the master page is automatically checked out to copy the text and translate it into the selected language. But when the new page is saved the users often forget to check in or Discard the check out. This means that the original owner is not able to do any changes.
    Really bad, when the translators are sitting around the world and not necesarily have the same working hours.

  15. Reinstate Deleted Content types to the Content Type Hub

    I have been caught out working with content type hubs for the first time and after researching, it seems I'm not the only one. I have deleted content types from the content type hub without "Unpublishing" them. I now have a bunch of content types that are orphaned in my subscriber sites and I don't know how to use PowerShell to fix the issue.

    Can you please provide a button against custom content types at the subscriber site level that will basically re-establish the deleted content type back in the hub. This will allow the newer users to fix the…

  16. Technical Report Templates

    I can't locate the Tech Pubs technical report and technical update templates. I suggest you post them here, or add a note that directs tech staff to where they can be found. Thank you! - Eric

  17. Ordre décroissant

    Est-ce qu'il serait possible de mettre le plus récent en premier (ordre inverse)? Car j'essaie de me tenir à jour et je trouve irritant de devoir descendre tout en bas (le temps de chargement étant long et il est plus complexe de trouver la date du jour)...

  19. Who viewed the post?

    I am an owner of the site. When I can see people have viewed, I would like to know the names. I have invited them, so I think this is important feedback - who exactly has looked?
    A tally is not important but who is.

    Thank you.
