  1. drag and drop files to grouped library view

    Drag and drop files into a library is working fine....unless you drop the file into a header of a grouped view..... Then the file is NOT uploaded at all.
    What would be nice (and has been working in the past): when dropping a file into a grouped view, the file should assume the metadata for that group.
    Frustrating is that this worked in the past and even now, the group where you want to drop is outlined when hovering above it with the dragged file.
    Already reported this to Microsoft Support (Case #;19765187) but got the answer that this is…

  2. Allow the list and library web parts to resize to show all items without using scroll bars in the web part

    The web part includes a Size property with the option to Autosize. However the web part still uses a vertical scrollbar. This results in nested scroll bars - one for the web part and another for the page.

    It would be better if the web part size adjusted to the full height of the content. The web page scroll bars can then be used to navigate the content.

    The Small, Medium and Large Size options can be used if you want to restrict the web part height.

    When the view is configured to group by a column (expanded), the web…

  3. Hide path in shared folders

    I have folders in a document library that I share with clients and it would be fantastic if they couldn’t see the full path breadcrumbs in the top left.

  4. Preserve modified dates on file upload and download

    When uploading or downloading files to and from SharePoint, either via a web browser or via the Teams client, the modified date and time of the files are changed to the upload/download time. I understand the create date would change, as a new copy is indeed created, but the modified date/time should be preserved.

    I note that the modified date is preserved when uploading via local OneDrive client syncing to a library.

  6. External collaboration with sync

    Have a separate owned SharePoint site which will sync document's been libraries + SharePoint. Having a link between 2 separate sites which an be managed by either side. NOT guest access

    Example: Drop an excel file under the following SharePoint library

    Contoso.com > Microsoft > Library

    And have it auto sync to a completely different tenant under

    Example.com > 2020 > Library

  7. Access the stock images as a standalone image library and not just through the image webpart/adding an image to a page.

    To browse stock images, you have to go through the image webpart or by adding an image to a page.

    Please make it possible to view the stock images as a library in its own right, from which you can download images directly or grab a link to that image to share with others.

  8. When uploading duplicate data to a SharePoint Online site, I want the function to upload only the difference

    現時点では、SharePoint Online サイトに重複するデータをアップロードする際に、差分のみアップロードする機能の提供には至っていない。
    SharePoint Online サイトに重複するデータをアップロードする際に、差分のみアップロードする機能があれば運用を行ううえで便利なため、差分のデータのみアップロードする機能を要望します。

    At the moment, when uploading duplicate data to the SharePoint Online site, the function to upload only the difference has not been provided.
    When uploading duplicate data to the SharePoint Online site, it is convenient to operate if there is a function to upload only the difference, so we request the function to upload only the difference data.

    Operating behavior when restoring documents


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint の "ドキュメントを復元" 画面において、以下機能の追加実装を要望します。

    ・大量のファイルを表示させる場合、スクロールによるリロードの実行が必要となるため、ファイル表示を一度で確認できるような設定を希望します。

    ・ドキュメントの復元画面では、各日時に表示される項目の全選択は可能ですが、すべての日時を一括で選択することができません。全項目を一括で選択できる機能の追加を希望します。

    Please add the following functions to the “Restore documents” screen on SharePoint:

    ・When viewing a large number of files, scrolling requires re-loading, so please make it possible to view all the files at once.
    ・Add a function to filter by changes described in each file, such as “Addition”, “Update”, “Moved to…”

  10. Block download of files with edit access.

    It seems you can only block download for read-only files. We need to be able block download for files with edit access for added security.

  11. Determination of file language

    ファイルの言語判定について
    Determination of file language


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードしたファイルについて、日本語のファイルか、日本語以外の言語のファイルかの言語判定が、曖昧な動作をしているように思える。同じ操作で同じ内容で作成したファイルでも言語判定がわかれることがあるので、動作の精度を上げて欲しいのと、判定の基準のようなものがあれば公開して欲しい。

    When files are uploaded to document libraries, files which are in Japanese are incorrectly identified as being in other languages, with no clear reason. There are cases where files with the same content created in the same way are determined to be in different languages, so please improve this function, and publish information about how the determination of file languages functions.

    Add a way to check file metadata size in storage volume metrics


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにファイルをアップロードすると、実際のサイズよりも大きくなるため、サイト コレクションの容量を圧迫してしまう。
    ファイル単体・バージョン管理の容量は確認可能だが、メタデータの容量の算出だけ不可なためサイト コレクションの容量管理に影響が出ている。

    記憶域メトリックスからメタデータを確認できる機能の搭載を希望いたします。

    When uploading a file to a document library, it becomes larger than it really is, which puts pressure on the site collection capacity.
    It’s possible to check how much space is used by individual files or version management, but the volume taken by metadata cannot be measured, and this has an effect on the management of site collection space.
    Please make it possible to check metadata size in the storage volume metrics.

    Editing library item names


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリに保存されているアイテムのうち、一部のアイテムを目立たせたい。
    上部に固定することは可能だが、設定できる数が限られている。
    アイテム名に下線を引いたり太字にしたりすることで、一部アイテムを目立たせ利便性が上がるため、ライブラリのアイテム名などの文字に下線や太字、フォント カラーの変更といった編集が加えられるよう、機能の拡充を希望します。

    I want to make some items stand out among those saved in a document library.
    It is possible to pin them to the top, but the number you can do this for is limited.
    If you could underline or bold item names, you could highlight items, which would be useful. Therefore, please add editing options for item names, such as underlining, bold, and font colors.

    Please make it possible to easily configure the search condition settings per content type or item name using content types.

  18. display the sum of a calculated column

  19. Keep encoded URLs in case of discarding check out

    Similar to SharePointOnline, encoded URLs should be kept when users discard check out at a page of document libraries in SharePointServer 2013, 2016 and 2019.
    This function will make it possible to enhance SharePoint usability because encoded URLs are kept in check out, check in, save, restore from version history.
