  1. Drag and drop files directly to Sharepoint

    Enable users to drag and drop files directly to SharePoint from other applications, without having to download or save them to desktop first, which is a time-wasting step

  2. Add Favorite function

    It seems like the new interface doesn't let you Favorite a document. Delve is the only way I can favorite it at this point. Is this by design?

  3. Allow a site owner to kick a user out of a file opened in Excel Online

    If you have multiple people co-authoring in Excel Online, there are times when you need to open the file in Excel - typically for advanced formatting, etc. If someone has accidentally left the file open in their browser, there is no way to force them out and keeps the file locked. Although not always intentional, it can create a major headache by not being able to simply kick/close out that particular user from editing.

  4. multiple document check in

    I need to be able to check in multiple documents at once. I cannot be wasting time checking in 30 documents one at a time! This feature is available on classic SharePoint. Why would you remove that?

  8. Allow selective sync for SharePoint

    Now that sync is available for SharePoint libraries, can we add selective sync for selecting specific files or folders for syncing?

  9. Drag and Drop attachments from Outlook

    Would love to be able to drag & drop email attachments directly from Outlook into a document library. Currently I have to drag them to my desktop and then drag from my desktop into the doc library.

  10. Missing ribbon menu, missing functions

    Where's the menu (ribbon) in the new look? Without menu there're many IMPORTANT functions missing.

    Please find a way to put back full functions. Otherwise the SharePoint is NOT USABLE in a real business environment.

  11. In document library search

    I am missing the "In document library search" which was availlable in the classic experience of the document library.

  12. Easy way to unlock documents

    Would it be possible or feasible to place an item in the menu or a button on the main ribbon to unlock a document? I have a document that is locked for offline viewing and I cannot make any changes to this document.

    What make this frustrating is that I am being told by Office 365 that I am editing this document offline. I have restarted my one drive, my computer and all of my open documents on my laptop. I don't understand why this continues to happen but, it would be nice to have a simple fix.

    Bottom line,…

  13. File folder/explorer view

    Add a "normal" File Folder/Windows Explorer view to Sites; a la Google Docs or a file server. The new Sites UI is too "webby" and it takes too long to do just about anything:
    1. Can only upload one file at a time.
    2. Can only download one file at a time.
    3. Can't sync OneDrive for Business & Sites files using one client.
    4. Opening OneDrive or Sharepoint Sites from the main login opens another tab. Open a group in your Site and it opens yet another tab. Why can't it just drill down like a normal file folder…

  14. File Search

    A file search on every folder screen would be extremely helpful. Especially considering you've added virtual scrolling when the folder contains several files; it can be a little tedious if the file is at the bottom and you have to wait on virtual scrolling to load more than once.

  16. No Search Bars

    This new view does not have the search bars. We have spent a lot of time teaching our staff to use the search bars. (There used to be two: one to search for files within current folder and one to search the entire site.) Please give them back!!!

  18. Change document upload action to support management of documents

    Currently, documents are able to be uploaded to a document library that contains required fields without filling in these fields. This logic is flawed. Please let me explain...

    Let's assume that we want to create a workflow that simply modifies the title of an uploaded document based on columns of a content type. To ensure the title is always populated with information, we make a column (we'll use the "Name" column) required on a document library.

    METHOD 1
    If an end user were to click the "Upload" button, they will be able to select their document and click OK. Since…

  19. Multiple files Check In/Check Out with new look

    With the new SharePoint document libraries "New look", I can not do the multiple check Out/check in. It would be nice to have that option handy.

  20. 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.
