  3. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Add tree view functionality

    Add the tree view navigation to the new document library view. When I go to the new document library UI, the tree view navigation goes away.

  18. Drag and Drop UI consistency

    The Drag and Drop UI seems clumsy for files into libraries. It seems you have to position the dropped item right on the dividing bar between the library header and the document list for drag and drop to work (at least in IE 11, in chrome dropping anywhere on the library seems to work). NOTE that the prompt at the top of the page says drag to any location but it doesn't really mean what is says, since the drop only works for the library itself. Not for example to other libraries listed on the nav bar.

  19. SharePoint Online Calendar, the “All Day Event” in Quick View is locked

    Unlock the "All Day Event" field in Quick View so entries can quickly be updated. We have multiple "Time Off Calendars" for various departments. We workload groups move, data is copied from one calendar to another but the "All Day Event" data does not copy over. If the "All Day Event" is not selected the Weekly Calendar view displays multiple vertical lines instead of names. To correct, each individual entry must be opened, the "all day event" selected and saved. This is very time consuming (typically 100+ entries) but necessary for the weekly calendar to display accurate date.

  20. Only display "Shared with external users" when it is actually shared

    The new modern library view always says "Shared with external users" even if the permissions are internal use only - it's picking up the site collection global settings. This new message is generating lots of support calls and concern from our users who think their private libraries are suddenly accessible externally. It should only say this if either the library or a document within is actually shared with a non-Office 365 native user
