  2. Folder Search Function

    Would it be possible to have a feature where you can search the folders by name. Instead of scrolling to the folder you want, all you would do is type in the name of the folder, or the first few letters, and then SharePoint would filter the folders you see by what you typed. That would be super helpful and save a lot of time scrolling.

  3. Check In of Multiple Files

    We need the ability to check in multiple files at a time. I am required to keep my files in two different locations. I am copying over hundreds of documents that will each need to be checked in one at a time. This will take a full day of work just checking in the documents.

  4. Filter pane managed metadata

    It would be really nice if the new filter pane metadata navigation would:
    -show only the used values like the columns filters instead of showing the whole tree.
    -Give the option of typing values with autocomplete (like it used to work in keyfilters)

  5. Remove Shared from "Shared Documents" library name

    Please remove the "Shared" from the "Shared documents" library name to make the URL more readable AND multilingual. It can stay in the title as it is translated correctly an even editable.

    The word "Document" is valid for many languages (French being the one that impacts me) but "shared" is not.

    The space adds "%20" to the URL.

    We used to simply rename the library but, it now breaks both Groups and Teams navigation.

    There is also an entry in Team's uservoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18731479-shorten-default-files-url-from-shared-documents

  7. Restore option like OneDrive for Business on SharePoint Libraries

    Add the restore feature coming to OneDrive into SharePoint Online Libraries. Since sync clients can touch SharePoint too it would be nice to be able to easily restore a library to previous version. Ideally we should be able to restore a library to point in time and or folder, this would be best case and go nicely with the previous versions built in.

  9. Add "Download a Copy" to "Get a link" options

    Within a team/group/sharepoint site we are able to "Get a link" for documents stored in a document library within one of those sites. When I click get a link, I get a URL as follows:

    https://travismathew.sharepoint.com/sites/corpsalesteam/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?docid=11584311cc4ce4d7ca41ebd0286eefb95&authkey=AScTJfwGWWN6CqKfwr0Aoo0&expiration=2017-06-16T18%3a24%3a29.000Z

    This takes the user directly to a document in the Word Online view. I can then change the guestaccess.aspx part of the URL to download.aspx and the URL now functionally allows a user to download a copy of the document.

    Making manual modifications to this URL is not effective, and there should be a way for users to easily click "Get a link" and…

  11. Modern Document Libraries: Add back the option to limit number of documents to show at a time

    "Modern Document Libraries: Add back the option to limit number of documents to show at a time"
    I worked with MS 365 Support and it was discovered that there are significant performance issues in "Modern" Document Libraries when loading 50 or more documents at a time when using Internet Explorer (Edge and Chrome work great). My suggestion is to add back the option to only show a limited amount of documents at a time before going to the next page. Right now Modern document libraries loads all the documents without the option to limit them.

    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online の動作ではクラシック UI のドキュメント ライブラリにおいて、ドキュメント セットやフォルダに対し [評価の設定] の "いいね!" の機能を使用することが出来ないことを確認しました。

    In the current behavior in SharePoint Online, I have confirmed that we cannot use “Likes” function in [Assessment setting] to the Document Sets and folders in the document library on the Classic UI. Although we recognize that we can “Likes” the Document sets and folders in the Modern UI,…

  15. Provide an option to disable the "Share" button.

    The Share button breaks inheritance on an item, and without warning to the user. With the default Permission Level of "Edit" in Team Sites, you can quickly have 100's or 1000's of items with unique permissions. Going forward, any permissions granted at the library or site level can create a situation where new users will see all of the content in a library, except for those with unique permissions.

    I would like to be able to disable (hide) the Share buttons at various tiers such as library, site, site collection or web application/tenant.

  16. Envoyer en tant que pièce jointe un document

    Être en mesure de pouvoir envoyer directement et en quelques clics un fichier en PJ d'un mail (sur Outlook client lourd). En gros, l'option permet d'envoyer rapidement un mail contenant la pièce jointe qui provient de SharePoint.

  17. Accusé de réception et/ou de lecture

    Bonjour, merci pour cette occasion de partager nos idées. Cela fait 10 ans environ que j'utilise le travail collaboratif qui a du mal à être adopté en entreprise.
    Mon idée de ce jour:
    LOrsqu'on partage un dossier par exemple qui contient un document très important, il serait bien de demander une confirmation de prise en compte du paratge ou de lecture du document partagé par exemple. Pourquoi cela? Car il y a des personnes qui vous laisse dans votre monde SharePoint mis en place par les dirigeants mais beaucoup de personnes continuent de fonctionner à l'ancienne. Merci. Mr MAAMERI (…

  20. Add Share button for entire list/library

    Hello,
    Can we get a Share Button added to the default view of a list or library that will share the entire library using the same interface as the individual document/list item? Currently to Share an entire list or library you have to go into the list/library settings and manage the permissions.

    Possibly this is by design, but if it was added maybe add a warning that by sharing this will give access to all items in this list? Or do you guys do it because inheritance gets broken when sub items are shared?
