  4. Design Change request Document upload to SharePoint using Cloud App Security policy

    User is trying to create a FILE POLICY using the Cloud App Security (This policy will scan the documents that were assigned to the policy and apply the PROTECTED label to that document) When a file is saved in SPO, this attribute is getting deleted when policy is assigned using Cloud App Security.
    If a file is uploaded by using Cloud App Security, it is not decrypted by SPO. When a file is updated in SPO, SPO makes a API call to update the protection label. The processor which takes this input doesn't detect SharePoint as a valid user, so…

  5. Default modern lists & library views to "Compact List"

    The adages of "Compact List" is great, but it cannot be set as the default view. Add the ability to set "Compact List" as the default view for all modern lists and libraries. Moreover display within web parts as well.

  6. Drag and drop folders in browser for SharePoint 2016

    Our state organization has upgraded SharePoint from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016. This upgrade has resulted in a functionality loss of being able to drag and drop folders to libraries in browser. We are requesting that Microsoft restore the drag drop folder functionality in SharePoint 2016 that was lost. This loss has had an adverse impact to our business users.

  7. Sharepoint "see all" should be the default

    When I am on Sharepoint "see all" should be the default for my company files. I want to see all of my files all the time. Or at the very least I should be to set my preferences to show all.

  8. Upload document revision - Retain link

    Please enable a feature to upload a new revision / replace a document in a SharePoint / OneDrive library to a new version without losing existing links to it.

    I am streamlining the companies document library, currently we have multiple versions of the same document uploaded to various websites and in a library for internal use. I wish to create one true source to reduce maintenance errors when applying updates. I wish to use a cloud service to host the library, have it accessible through a mobile app and use links to the documents on ours and 3rd party websites.

    In Custom List, we can set the “Item-level Permissions” in [List settings] – [Advanced settings] to make it so that only the user who created the item can edit it. However, in Document and Page libraries, such a setting does not exist, and it is not possible to make a setting where only the user who created the item can edit it. Therefore, I would request for better…

  10. synchronization: SP documents to local (File Explorer)

    When shared elements are sync'd to the local drive, they show with the sharer's name first. In L-R Western reading style, it becomes extremely difficult in a list of things in File Explorer to find the item needed since the useful text is buried to the right of the text string. People don't think of who shared it, they think of the content they need. The display as-is is inefficient and frustrating. What can be done to change this to be more useful / user friendly? Note however, that when it comes to the Teams team name being first, this…

  11. move file between libraries

    Hello,
    With the deleting of File Explorer feature, how can we copy file within a same site collection or site?
    The feature of copy to an other site is great but not useable because we have thousand of site and we cannot find sites easily.
    I only want a simple feature to copy paste documents beetween libraries within a same site (spweb);
    What is your solution?
    Br,
    Sabri

  12. Default history version Sharepoint Libraries

    In the Sharepoint admin center allow to control the version history of every document library and the upcoming ones. . Example: maximum of 10 major versions for all Libraries existing and upcoming. For exceptions go to the library and change it.

  13. Regarding the behaviour of document libraries

    ドキュメント ライブラリの動作について
    Regarding the behaviour of document libraries


    ■Description(内容):
    必須列が設定されたドキュメント ライブラリに、クラシック UI またはエクスプローラー経由でアイテムをアップロードすると、自動的にファイルがチェックアウトされてしまい、他のユーザーにアップロードしたアイテムが表示されない。勝手にチェックアウトされては困るので、そのままアップロードされるよう改善して欲しい。
    When items are uploaded from the Classic UI or explorer to document libraries that have compulsory columns set, files will be checked out automatically, and the items uploaded will not be displayed to other users. It is very troublesome for users when checkout is done automatically, so please change this to let the upload continue by itself.

  14. Create an “Edit online only” permission in SharePoint and OneDrive.

    Many professional services firms and other businesses will require this safeguard to ensure that documents are not downloaded onto personal devices while allowing members to edit them online only.

  17. Documents library: tile view (title)

    It should be enabled to display "title" in the tile view.

    "Edit current view": you can select that only type and title is displayed - but currently this is only shown correctly in the "list view", not in the tile view. Tile view still shows only name of the document (even the current view is set-up differently).

  19. Open with Explorer

    The previous post located was closed. Our organization uses Internet Explorer because that is the only browser that supports Open with Explorer. Why is that? Why would Microsoft roll out a new browser without the same functionality? Everyone works directly in SharePoint - we do not want them synching to OneDrive as that has caused problems. The master set of files is in SharePoint and should always be the files used. Note that we are still using Classic sites.
