  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.

    • 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:

      • Restore "Sign in as a different user"

        This is essential and needs to be easy to find instead of hacking the URL every time you need to sign in as a different user.

        • 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.

          • Overview of applied content types

            Content types are an essential part of SharePoint. One issue that has been around since SharePoint 2007 is the absence of an overview of all applied content types. Why is this important? Try to delete a content type and you get the message it's still in use. Good luck finding out where. This is very frustrating and time consuming. That's why I vote for an overview where you can see where the content types are applied.

            • be aware of the behavior through App launcher.

              In case I get access SharePoint Online along with the URL which is not encoded through Internet Explorer, I am aware that the HTTP 500 internal error occurs when clicking the App launcher's[Email][Calendar]in the sate that the URL includes the double-byte characters(such as Home). I hope the immediate improvement concerning this incident.

              • Permissions report - inheritance breaks

                Allow the owners of the sites to view a report of the security of their site. Start by adding a chart of the inheritance breaks of the whole site in one glance. This will become more and more important since you can use the 'Share' button on a file and break inheritance without understanding what you're doing.

                • Sorting of followed sites

                  The new layout looks better, but there does not seem to be any way of re-ordering these - not even alphabetically. When you follow a lot of sites as I do, they can be hard to find in an unordered jumble of large tiles.
                  Please either sort automatically or provide a means for us to sort them!

                    • Sync SharePoint site files to desktop

                      Make a tool that allows members of a site in SharePoint to sync the files from the SharePoint site to their desktop.

                      Working on a presentation, budget sheet or a regular word document is still easier from the desktop applications. And when you are on the go you will not always have internet access which is why you have to be able to access your files offline.

                        • Organize sharepoint sites

                          I'd like to be able to organize the home page of sites i'm following to put the sites I use the most at the top, and group similar sites --for instance, I have several sites that are related to Human resources work, but I only use them occasionally and would like them to put them in a folder or notebook. Instead, they are all listed separately and I have to scroll through them to get to the ones I use more frequently. If there is already a way to do this, it is NOT apparent on the way my sharepoint…

                            Thanks for your suggestion.

                            The Frequent section should show the sites you use the most. Do you feel this is not accurate enough?

                            If you want to keep around sites you use occasionally, the “Follow” action should help with this. All the sites you Follow will be shown under the Following section.

                            We’d like to hear more about what do you mean by “putting sites in a folder o notebook”.

                          • Encourage sharing w groups

                            We typically discourage site owners from sharing at the document level due to the increase in administrative work that it causes. We also discourage owners from inviting individuals - we suggest that inviting groups makes the work simpler. However, the interface when sharing a document doesn't encourage sharing with groups - doesn't even make it obvious that sharing with groups is possible there. Are we wrong in how we are encouraging our site owners to manage their sites? If not, can it be made more obvious that sharing with groups is the best practice?

                              • Allow creation of managed path

                                On prem, we use web apps and managed path to define our sites structure. I understand that we cannot have webapps online but why can't we create managed path?

                                I would use it to group sites by type
                                http://tenant/teams/TeamA
                                http://tenant/groups/GroupA
                                http://tenant/services/IT
                                http://tenant/clients/000000

                                It would help for search and administration.

                                Thanks.

                                    • Get rid of SharePoint calendars and let us embed Exchange calendars onto SharePoint pages

                                      I can't find a good reason why you'd have SharePoint calendars at all, when every SharePoint user will already have Exchange licensing (unless I'm not familiar with those use cases). Given that, or regardless of it, if you allow us to embed an existing Exchange calendar into a SharePoint page, it eliminates the need for the redundant calendar creation and gets me right to the source info I need to display. Sharing team calendars within the Outlook interface is not as usable as displaying them on a SharePoint page. I'm happy to show you examples. Google Sites has been doing…

                                      • Error message

                                        I am working with more than 5000 lists and migrate the items into saving lists at every 3 to 6 months. I have found an error below when I attempted to migrate the items along with contents and structures.
                                        ---------
                                        <Error Message>

                                        When I selected the fewer than 1000 data, I was able to migrate it. However, I am not quite sure how the problem has been caused, like for instance, whether the cause is server load or whether the matter of…

                                        • DenyAddAndCustomizePages for office 365 group morden site and OneDrive for Business

                                          https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Turn-scripting-capabilities-on-or-off-1F2C515F-5D7E-448A-9FD7-835DA935584F?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                                          From this article, using the following powershell command we can Turn scripting capabilities on for specified site.
                                          Set-SPOsite <SiteURL> -DenyAddAndCustomizePages 0

                                          It doesn't work for group site and onedrive for business site. We can set Custom Script value to Allow users to run custom script on personal sites in SharePoint admin. All onedrive for business site will turn on it after 24 hours.

                                          But how to turn on for group site?
