  1. Add Search/Office Web Apps preview functionality for email/msg files

    The suggestion is quite simple: Please add a preview functionality for email messages similar to the current word/powerpoint files to enrich the search preview or the preview in libraries.

    Would be perfect if downloading of included attachments would work, too - without downloading the entire file first.

    Business case: Most of my clients store emails directly in SharePoint - finding the right one is not an easy job afterwards if you don't get a visual indication if that is the right email you are looking for.

  2. Allow inserting multiple links to a single column

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    一つの列に複数のリンクを登録できるようにしてほしい

    Allow inserting multiple links to a single column


    ■Description(内容):
    通常のリンク列では一つのリンクしか登録ができない。
    1つのアイテムに複数のリンクを登録できるように設定したいが、事前にリンク列を複数用意するとスペースが必要となります。
    リンクは登録しないアイテムもあれば複数登録するアイテムもある為、リンク列を用意することは困難です。
    複数テキストでは登録時にユーザーが改行するなどの必要があり、誤操作が発生する可能性がある。
    1 つのリンク列に縦に複数のリンクをならべて保存できるようにする方法を希望します。

    Currently, only one link can be inserted to a single link column, therefore we need to create multiple link columns in advance if we wanted to insert multiple links to an item.

    It is not realistic way for us to prepare many link columns beforehand because not all items are required to insert links. Another option to add multiple links to an item is using multi-line text columns, but it may cause user’s misoperation because they need to perform a…

  3. Explorer doesn’t start when clicking [Open in Explorer] in the Modern UI if the default view style was set to [Basic Table]

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    既定のビューのスタイルが [基本的な表形式] の場合、モダン UI にて [エクスプローラーで表示] 機能を利用するとエクスプローラーが起動しない

    Explorer doesn’t start when clicking [Open in Explorer] in the Modern UI if the default view style was set to [Basic Table]


    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI にて [エクスプローラーで表示] 機能を利用するとブラウザーの別のタブが表示され、自動的にエクスプローラーが起動する動作となっている。
    しかしながら、ドキュメント ライブラリの既定のビューのスタイルが [基本的な表形式] の場合、ブラウザーの別のタブは表示されるがエクスプローラーが自動的に起動しない。
    別のタブで表示されたクラシック UI 上から [エクスプローラーで開く] をクリックすることで、エクスプローラーで開くことは可能だが、二度手間となったり、モダン UI で表示していたフォルダーの階層でエクスプローラーを開けないため、動作の修正を要望します。

    As we click [Open in Explorer] another tab will be displayed and then the Explorer will start automatically. However, when we set [Basic Table] as the default view style for a document library, Explorer will not be started automatically. Although we can open an item by clicking [Open in Explorer]…

  4. An Excel file protected with a password will be checked out unintendedly

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    読み取りパスワードを設定した Excel ファイルの必須列が空欄になりチェックアウトされる

    An Excel file protected with a password will be checked out unintendedly


    ■Description(内容):
    読み取りパスワードを設定した Excel ファイルを SharePoint Online のライブラリに保存し該当ファイルを編集し保存すると、ライブラリの必須列に入力した値が空欄になり、ファイルがチェックアウトされてしまう。
    現時点での既定の動作であることは確認したが、パスワードを設定したファイルを保存、編集した際に必須列の値が空欄にならないようにしてほしい。

    When editing and saving an Excel file protected with a password to SharePoint Online library, the value entered in the required column is unintendedly emptied and the file is checked out.
    We confirmed that is the default behavior for now, however, the entered value should not be emptied from the required column even when saving and editing the file protected with a password.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. Allow bulk check in/out for multiple files in the Modern UI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    モダン 表示 (新 UI) での複数ファイルのチェックイン、チェックアウトについて

    Allow bulk check in/out for multiple files in the Modern UI


    ■Description(内容):
    クラシック 表示 (旧 UI) では、複数ファイルをまとめて選択し、一括でチェックイン、チェックアウトが可能であるが、モダン 表示では複数ファイルをまとめてチェックイン、チェックアウトする機能が提供されていないため、モダン 表示でも一括でチェックイン、チェックアウトする機能を追加してほしい。

    For improvement of usability, we would like to be able to select multiple files and bulk check in/check out in the Modern UI, as same behavior as the Classic UI.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  7. File check in

    have the ability to check files in from the library "files checked out" page - rather than going to the file location for each one. As per the original SharePoint site.

    SharePoint 2010 承認ワーク フローでの、サイトの所有者グループに含まれるユーザーが承認完了できる動作の改善希望

    Correct a behavior that users belong to site owner group can approve workflow requests


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 2010 承認ワーク フローをサイト内で利用しており、承認者として割り当てされていないユーザーが承認できる動作を確認しました。
    確認すると、サイトの所有者グループに含まれるユーザーであることを確認しました。
    承認者として割り当てされたユーザーのみが承認できることが理想であるため、動作の改善もしくは設定変更を可能とするアップデートを希望します。

    In SharePoint 2010 approval workflow we are using in our sites, we see that even a user who is not assigned as an approver have an ability to approve workflows. We found out that the user who can approve workflows is a members of site owner groups.

    Only users who are assigned as approvers should have ability to approve it, therefore, we hope you to correct this behavior or provide an…

  11. Folders in document section

  12. file size not showing

    File size would be a helpful default column for SharePoint libraries. In my web version (in Chrome) I am not even seeing file size as an option to add. Thanks!

  13. Add filter for last couple years

    Filtering by date jumps between 30 years to 30 days. Adding increments for every year up to 5 years would be great. If that's not possible, then just a 2 year search would be a notable improvement.

  20. Search by magistrates' hearing date

    This gives welcome feedback on magistrates' decisions. It would be even more useful if we could search by original hearing date to see which of our individual decisions have been appealed.
