  1. Determination of file language

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    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.

  2. Editing library item names

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ライブラリのアイテム名の編集
    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.

  9. display the sum of a calculated column

    With a calculated column, you can do some nice math. It would be great to have the option to sum up all the columns just like normal columns.

  11. Copy/Move from library search results

    SharePoint library Copy To and Move To feature not consistently available on a library search results. This sometimes works but it is not an actual feature according to support. In a large library, wanting to move or copy a file or folder from search results is necessary.

  12. 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.

  13. About the title of browser tabs when you open a document library

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ドキュメント ライブラリ を開いた際のブラウザーのタブのタイトルについて
    About the title of browser tabs when you open a document library


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 SharePoint Online にて ページ開いた際は、ブラウザーのタブのタイトルには当該ページ名が表示されるが、ドキュメント ライブラリを開くと <サイト名> - <ドキュメント ライブラリ名> が表示される。
    上記動作のため、複数のタブを開くと、どのようなタブを開いているかの確認が行いづらいため、ブラウザーにて複数のタブを開いた際にどのようなタブを開いているかの確認をしやすくするよう、キュメント ライブラリを開いた際のタブのタイトルを当該ライブラリ名に等に変更する機能の拡充を要望します。

    Currently when you open a page on SharePoint Online, the title of the browser tab shows the page name, but for document libraries it shows ‘<site name> - <document library name>’.
    Because of this, if you open many tabs, it becomes difficult to tell which tabs are open, so please make it possible to change this so tabs for document libraries show the library name etc.

  14. Open files when shared in Client Application and not get downloaded.

    When you Share a file or add a link to a file, it downloads the document instead of opening in the Client Application.
    This is most frustrating, please can the file open in Client Application.

    ドキュメント ライブラリやリストにてアクセス数の詳細を集計する機能が欲しい。
    I want a function to view totals of detailed access counts to document libraries and lists


    ドキュメント ライブラリでアイテムの閲覧数を確認したいが、現在確認可能な "閲覧数" 、"閲覧者" の情報は短期間のうちに同一ユーザーがアクセスした場合にカウントされない場合があり、正確な情報を集計できない。
    ドキュメント ライブラリやリストの機能としてアイテムヘのアクセス数やアクセスしたユーザーを集計する機能の拡充を要望します。

    I want to check the number of views made to items in document libraries, but currently the “View count” and “Viewed by” information does not count multiple accesses made by the same user in a short time, so does not show correct totals.
    Please add a way to check total numbers of accesses by users to items in document libraries and lists.

  17. Regarding behavior when opening a PDF file stored in a modern UI document library

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリに格納された PDF ファイルを開いた際の動作について
    Regarding behavior when opening a PDF file stored in a modern UI document library


    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリに格納している PDF ファイルをクリックするとモダン UI のプレビュー表示で PDF ファイルが開き、その場合だと PDF ファイルの 「しおり」 機能が利用できない。しかしながら、[開く] から [ブラウザーで開く] で PDF ファイルを表示すると 「しおり」 機能が利用できるため、プレビュー表示では 「しおり」 機能が利用できない状況となります。そのため、モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリに格納された PDF ファイルを開く際に直接ブラウザーで開く動作にするか、プレビュー表示の際もブラウザーで開く場合と同様に 「しおり」 機能が利用できるように機能の拡充を要望します。

    Clicking a PDF file stored in the document library of the modern UI opens a PDF file in the preview display of the modern UI, in which case the "bookmark" function of the PDF file is not available.

    However, when you display a PDF file…

  18. Adjust modern Manage access panel for better overview

    When assigning permissions directly to document library, the sorting of the user list in Manage Access panel is confusing. First the sitecollection admins are displayed, which is hidden in classic view. The business owner of the site usually doesn´t know this person (technical admin), lose confidence in system and is trying to remove it from list. When switching to classic view via "Advanced" the user is not displayed in the list.
    Please adjust the listing in modern "Manage access" according to classic approach.

  20. Reduce file storage used by version history

    Due to auto-saving and the default version history limit in document libraries being 500 versions, we are seeing a lot of files in SharePoint Online taking up hundreds of gigabytes due to there being hundreds of versions. For example yesterday I found that a 2GB PPT file is using over 260GB of storage on a site because it has hundreds of versions.

    It would be better if the version history saves were smarter and more efficient, with only file changes saved. As an over-simplified example; if an extra slide is added to a PPT, only the extra slide is saved…
