  1. Search folder options

    Bring back folder options for search.

    Previously, in search, you could go directly to a folder that had the file you were looking for.

    Now, you can only open the file in the screen.

  2. Download folder & Multiple files in Sharepoint

    It would be very handy to be able to download folders. Even if they get zipped upon extraction, it would be really useful and make working on line simple.

  3. Download Multiples

    'Copy To' feature should allow user to select and save multiples to desktop or any computer location. Why can I only download one at a time, but I can upload multiples? It should allow drag/drop of multiples either direction, especially since Open with Explorer option is no longer available.

  4. Direct link to document

    Give the ability to retrieve a direct link to a file like was shown in the callout. If you want to use a html/txt file as source in a Content Editor webpart, you have to manually type the url because the generated links using Get a Link won't work.

  5. Whole folder download

    Create a way to download an entire folder without having to set up a synced folder.

    The fact that this fundamental cloud storage feature is unavailable is absurd.

  6. Hide Collaborators

    Our users would like to share the same Folder/Document with customers, but do not want the customers to know each other. Box.com has a feature, “Hide Collaborators” to support this use case. We would like to request a similar feature in SharePoint Online.

  12. Image Library Navigation Improvement

    When you click an image from a gallery in thumbnail view it currently takes you to the images properties. It'd be better if it opened the picture for a larger preview, with a small cog for options to then change the properties.

    The ability to navigate left and right to other pictures in the same album from this would be perfect.

    Most users would want to click it to view a larger image, not the properties of that image.

  13. Filters and conditional formatting

    What I need most is in List/Library filter option "Text that contains contains" and "Less than", "Between" and all the options used for conditional formatting in Excel for example +the conditional formatting itself.

  14. Return to Old Library Style

    Go back to the old style. It's much more user-friendly.

  15. Allow PDFs to launch in a new tab

    When I open PDFs on other website, these PDFs launch in a new tab. This behaviour is set within the internet browser. Within SharePoint, however, despite this, PDFs open within the same tab they are launched from. This is not a user friendly experience. Often, users close the tab without realising they are closing SharePoint entirely. They also often need to open multiple PDFs side by side. Tab behaviour in SharePoint should be governed by internet browser settings like other websites.

  18. Syncing Folders instead of libraries

    It would be great if the 'sync' option can be similar to OneDrive where we could sync one folder at a time. Syncing a whole library with the limitations is a problem. We encounter too many sync issues and it takes a long time.

  20. Enable Folder Upload capability on Office365 SharePoint

    It would be extremely helpful if I could upload folders and all content within onto the documents section of a SharePoint site. Does not seem to make sense that only documents can be uploaded, and that I have to create the folder names from scratch on Office365 SharePoint before uploading documents into those folders. It makes it difficult to make the switch from an older version of SharePoint to Office365 SharePoint, which seems counterintuitive and rather frustrating since the whole purpose of Office365 is to make such tasks simpler.
