  1. Block Download as the default for read-only links

    When sharing files read-only externally from sharepoint, we select the block download option before sending the link.

    It would be great if we were able to set a default behaviour for block download. It can be done for resitricting editing.

  2. Regarding the SharePoint Online document library search results shown using group display

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online ドキュメント ライブラリの検索結果をグループ表示した際の結果について
    Regarding the SharePoint Online document library search results shown using group display


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online 内のドキュメント ライブラリを利用してファイル管理をしています。
    検索直後の結果件数は正常に表示されるのですが、検索結果の列に対してグループ化処理を行った際に、検索直後の結果と異なる件数の表示となります。
    グループ化を行うことで表示が見やすくなる機能ですが、検索結果の件数に相違があるため正しい情報を得ることができません。
    検索結果のグループ化を実施した際も、正しい検索結果を表示するように機能の修正を要望します。​
    We are using SharePoint Online document library to manage files.
    Although the number of results is displayed normally immediately after the search, when grouping is performed on the search result columns, the number of results displayed will differ from the results displayed immediately after the search.
    Grouping is a function that makes the display easier to look at, but it does not provide the correct information due to differences in the number…

    When “Display all items without folders” is set in a document library view, show file paths in a column to allow checking of location folder


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリのビューで "フォルダーなしですべてのアイテムを表示する" を設定して一覧でアイテムを表示している。
    保存先のフォルダー階層にあわせてフィルターをかけてアイテムを抽出し、アイテムに一括で値を設定するため、列にフォルダーの情報が自動的に入力されるようにしたい。

    We are viewing items in a list using the “Display all items without folders” setting in the document library view”.
    In order to filter items by folder hierarchy for output and set values for items en masse, I would like to have folder information automatically exist in a column.
    Please add a function to display file paths in a column…

  4. Allow Site search for the "Move To" and "Copy To" feature within SharePoint Libraries

    We need a way to search/filter for sites within the "Move To" and "Copy To" window. Currently this is the only way to migrate content within the tenant apart from downloading > uploading. As it stands now in a tenant that has 300+ groups, you have to spend a good 20 minutes of your time just clicking through the "See more" to find the group you are looking for (each time you want to move a file). If you follow sites, it does not always show on the Following site list even after 24 hours. Even worse, my Followed site…

  5. Bring back SharePoint Online Image Metadata Extraction

    Back in September, we have used below columns to extract picture/image metadata w.r.t location in SharePoint Online:

    wicSystemGPSLatitude
    wic
    SystemGPSLongitude

    It worked brilliantly. But unfortunately the functionality doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Other metadata such as date taken has also been removed. This is causing extreme headache for customers who relied on this data.

    PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!!

  6. SharePoint 365: In co-authoring environment, versioning comments needed. Missing. Why remove ? Inexplicable. Version comments needed for aud

    Please re-create/restore versioning comments for co-authoring in SharePoint 365 when check-out is not required. Not being able to add comments is a severe handicap to our organization. We have to account for the changes to each version for auditing purposes. I get it if there is some incontrovertible logical reason for this, but to take away a fairly important feature like comments is hard to comprehend. It doesn't sound like it would involve much work or relative cost either.

  7. Provide options to manage 'Shared with us' Document Library view and link

    A new 'Shared with us' link has suddenly appeared in the Quick launch of all our SharePoint team sites when selecting 'Documents'. This is causing confusion among our users and many have asked how it can be hidden or how they can remove no longer relevant documents from the list.

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to move it, hide it or make it a sub link of Documents (which would be logical) or to remove individual files from the list (unlike in the 'Shared with me' view in OneDrive).

    Can you please make these improvement ASAP. It is not…

  8. Sync all shared folders from document library

    It would be great if we can sync the document library folders that are shared with us in one go, instead of opening the link from the email and just be able to sync one folder at a time. Not all users need access to the whole document library.

  9. Ability to apply "Protect Document" (read-only recommended) on a folder or library

    Our organization appreciates the modern option under File | Info | Protect Document to set files to "read-only recommended" instead of modifying permissions. It allow for files to still be easily collaborated on while preventing accidental changes. Brilliant!

    We are finding an increasing amount of scenarios where all files stored in a specific folder or library would benefit from the option to mass-apply this setting. Essentially, providing the flexibility to put a gate on reference files that should stay static unless edits are necessary.

  11. SharePoint 2016 & SPO New Folder Creation Bug - Title not set

    In SharePoint 2016 & SPO (Perhaps also 2019) there is a New Folder Creation Bug - wherein Title is not automatically set to the Name value during creation.

    However, if you rename the field, even without changing the value, and click "Save", it will properly set the Title.

    This has been confirmed in SP 2016 and SP Online.

    We want to display thumbnails only in Pictures Library as we are handling private data such as personal photos, but as download can be done when the details screen is displayed, we hope that a feature can be provided to not display the details screen or a setting to only display thumbnails.

  14. Option for each document library to only allow uploads which have file names containing specific letters

    Option for each document library to only allow uploads which have file names containing specific letters


    ■Description(内容):
    "ライブラリ A 社用" "ライブラリ B 社用" という 2 つのドキュメント ライブラリを作成した際、"ライブラリ A 社用" ではファイル名に "A 社" が、"ライブラリ B 社用" ではファイル名に "B 社" が含まれているファイルのみアップロードを許可するという機能の追加を希望します。

    背景としては、ドキュメント ライブラリ側でファイル名に特定の文字が含まれているファイルのみアップロードを許可することで、複数の客先に対し同時進行で書類を作成する際、異なる客先の書類の混在を避けることができると考えているためです。

    If you create two document libraries, “Library for company A” and “Library for company B”, we would like an option where we could only allow files with “company A” in the name to be uploaded to “Library for company A”, and files with “company B” in the name to be uploaded to “Library…

  17. Viewing Custom SharePoint Column Data in File Explorer / Finder

    A huge hole in the mantra to 'flatten folders' is that the SharePoint column data is not available in the locally synced OneDrive files.
    This means that it is necessary to keep a file hierarchy if you sync and work locally. Flattening and working locally are king, so please fix!

    Please improve this so that the "Open using client application" setting can be applied.
