  2. Add "Download a Copy" to "Get a link" options

    Within a team/group/sharepoint site we are able to "Get a link" for documents stored in a document library within one of those sites. When I click get a link, I get a URL as follows:

    https://travismathew.sharepoint.com/sites/corpsalesteam/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?docid=11584311cc4ce4d7ca41ebd0286eefb95&authkey=AScTJfwGWWN6CqKfwr0Aoo0&expiration=2017-06-16T18%3a24%3a29.000Z

    This takes the user directly to a document in the Word Online view. I can then change the guestaccess.aspx part of the URL to download.aspx and the URL now functionally allows a user to download a copy of the document.

    Making manual modifications to this URL is not effective, and there should be a way for users to easily click "Get a link" and…

  4. Modern Document Libraries: Add back the option to limit number of documents to show at a time

    "Modern Document Libraries: Add back the option to limit number of documents to show at a time"
    I worked with MS 365 Support and it was discovered that there are significant performance issues in "Modern" Document Libraries when loading 50 or more documents at a time when using Internet Explorer (Edge and Chrome work great). My suggestion is to add back the option to only show a limited amount of documents at a time before going to the next page. Right now Modern document libraries loads all the documents without the option to limit them.

  5. Enable using “Likes” function to Document sets and folders in the Classic UI as well

    現在の SharePoint Online の動作ではクラシック UI のドキュメント ライブラリにおいて、ドキュメント セットやフォルダに対し [評価の設定] の "いいね!" の機能を使用することが出来ないことを確認しました。

    In the current behavior in SharePoint Online, I have confirmed that we cannot use “Likes” function in [Assessment setting] to the Document Sets and folders in the document library on the Classic UI. Although we recognize that we can “Likes” the Document sets and folders in the Modern UI,…

  6. Provide an option to disable the "Share" button.

    The Share button breaks inheritance on an item, and without warning to the user. With the default Permission Level of "Edit" in Team Sites, you can quickly have 100's or 1000's of items with unique permissions. Going forward, any permissions granted at the library or site level can create a situation where new users will see all of the content in a library, except for those with unique permissions.

    I would like to be able to disable (hide) the Share buttons at various tiers such as library, site, site collection or web application/tenant.

  9. Envoyer en tant que pièce jointe un document

    Être en mesure de pouvoir envoyer directement et en quelques clics un fichier en PJ d'un mail (sur Outlook client lourd). En gros, l'option permet d'envoyer rapidement un mail contenant la pièce jointe qui provient de SharePoint.

  10. Accusé de réception et/ou de lecture

    Bonjour, merci pour cette occasion de partager nos idées. Cela fait 10 ans environ que j'utilise le travail collaboratif qui a du mal à être adopté en entreprise.
    Mon idée de ce jour:
    LOrsqu'on partage un dossier par exemple qui contient un document très important, il serait bien de demander une confirmation de prise en compte du paratge ou de lecture du document partagé par exemple. Pourquoi cela? Car il y a des personnes qui vous laisse dans votre monde SharePoint mis en place par les dirigeants mais beaucoup de personnes continuent de fonctionner à l'ancienne. Merci. Mr MAAMERI (…

  13. Add Share button for entire list/library

    Hello,
    Can we get a Share Button added to the default view of a list or library that will share the entire library using the same interface as the individual document/list item? Currently to Share an entire list or library you have to go into the list/library settings and manage the permissions.

    Possibly this is by design, but if it was added maybe add a warning that by sharing this will give access to all items in this list? Or do you guys do it because inheritance gets broken when sub items are shared?

  14. Customize Document Library Action List

    "Check out" button is buried. It's required on my site to check a document out before uploading a new version, so why is it so hard to find? It would be nice to be able to edit the list of available actions (New, Upload, Quick edit, Share, etc. I'd like to remove some buttons that aren't necessary for my purposes and reorder the rest to fit my needs.

  15. Visual indicator on shared items

    Would be good to add a visual indicator on Document Libraries, folders and files that have been shared. It could be an active small share icon next to the item.

    From the modern document library view, users will be able to identify any items that have unique permission (broken inheritance) compared to the Site permissions.

    Now users can easily share folders and files or even change the permission of the document library, but it's then really difficult to track down these shared items.

  16. Enable launching the client application by clicking on the file displayed as a search result.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名: 検索利用時に表示されるファイルをクリック時にクライアント アプリケーションで起動可能なように機能実装を希望します。
    ■内容:

    ドキュメント ライブラリにてファイルをクライアントアプリケーションで起動するよう制御が可能だが、サイト内検索を利用時に表示されるファイルをクリックした場合にクライアントアプリケーションで優先的に起動する制御ができないため、クライアント アプリケーションで起動可能なように機能実装を希望します。

    Enable launching the client application by clicking on the file displayed as a search result.

    I recognized that it is possible to control the file to be launched by the client application in the document library. However, when the user is using the in-site search, the user cannot control to start with priority in the client application by clicking on a file displayed.

    Therefore, we hope the feature will be enabled to launch the client application by clicking on the file displayed as a search result for increas usability.

    Thank…

  17. un-share shared document

    Members can share documents and folders in SharePoint, but they cannot un-share the documents they shared. I think an option to do this would be useful.

    1 group of user has full access on this file.
    2nd group can only view in browser.

  19. fix the "likes" rating settings in modern experience

    Please fix the "Likes" voting/rating in the modern experience. It works in the classic experience, and I have confirmed through a support request that this is not working in the modern experience. The support tech suggested that I add this as a feature request.

  20. As a user I want to be able to create Word documents in Word 2016 (i.e. Desktop) from templates stored in SharePoint

    In Office 2016 we only have 2 locations for templates:


    • User Templates

    • Workgroup Templates

    This is just too limited. I need to be able to reference template libraries in more than just two locations.

    It seems to me that we should be able to reference templates stored on SharePoint sites, just to be clear multiple SharePoint sites.

    So if I want to create a document from the Marketing Team's templates then I should be able to see templates from their SP site, if I want to create a document from the Finance Team's template then I should be able to…
