  1. Delete files

    Please provide clear delete button for deleting files from Outlook 365 Groups.

    I want to delete a file that I accidentally uploaded and cannot find how, it is very frustrating.

  2. Return to Old Library Style

    Go back to the old style. It's much more user-friendly.

  3. Offline Functionality

    Can a person have offline capability to make changes to documents if internet access is not available. And changes are uploaded when it is, similar to dropbox.

  4. Whole folder download

    Create a way to download an entire folder without having to set up a synced folder.

    The fact that this fundamental cloud storage feature is unavailable is absurd.

  5. Allow PDFs to launch in a new tab

    When I open PDFs on other website, these PDFs launch in a new tab. This behaviour is set within the internet browser. Within SharePoint, however, despite this, PDFs open within the same tab they are launched from. This is not a user friendly experience. Often, users close the tab without realising they are closing SharePoint entirely. They also often need to open multiple PDFs side by side. Tab behaviour in SharePoint should be governed by internet browser settings like other websites.

  6. Change document upload action to support management of documents

    Currently, documents are able to be uploaded to a document library that contains required fields without filling in these fields. This logic is flawed. Please let me explain...

    Let's assume that we want to create a workflow that simply modifies the title of an uploaded document based on columns of a content type. To ensure the title is always populated with information, we make a column (we'll use the "Name" column) required on a document library.

    METHOD 1
    If an end user were to click the "Upload" button, they will be able to select their document and click OK. Since…

  7. Filters and conditional formatting

    What I need most is in List/Library filter option "Text that contains contains" and "Less than", "Between" and all the options used for conditional formatting in Excel for example +the conditional formatting itself.

  8. Drag and drop files directly to Sharepoint

    Enable users to drag and drop files directly to SharePoint from other applications, without having to download or save them to desktop first, which is a time-wasting step

  10. Download folder & Multiple files in Sharepoint

    It would be very handy to be able to download folders. Even if they get zipped upon extraction, it would be really useful and make working on line simple.

  13. Enable Folder Upload capability on Office365 SharePoint

    It would be extremely helpful if I could upload folders and all content within onto the documents section of a SharePoint site. Does not seem to make sense that only documents can be uploaded, and that I have to create the folder names from scratch on Office365 SharePoint before uploading documents into those folders. It makes it difficult to make the switch from an older version of SharePoint to Office365 SharePoint, which seems counterintuitive and rather frustrating since the whole purpose of Office365 is to make such tasks simpler.

  14. File Search

    A file search on every folder screen would be extremely helpful. Especially considering you've added virtual scrolling when the folder contains several files; it can be a little tedious if the file is at the bottom and you have to wait on virtual scrolling to load more than once.

  15. Email Enabled Libraries

    Email enabled list for SharePoint Online, this was a great feature for direct interaction with sharepoint via mail, although site mail box is a similar concept, would love to see email enabled lists in 0365.

  16. Search folder options

    Bring back folder options for search.

    Previously, in search, you could go directly to a folder that had the file you were looking for.

    Now, you can only open the file in the screen.

  17. Multiple files Check In/Check Out with new look

    With the new SharePoint document libraries "New look", I can not do the multiple check Out/check in. It would be nice to have that option handy.

  19. Only display "Shared with external users" when it is actually shared

    The new modern library view always says "Shared with external users" even if the permissions are internal use only - it's picking up the site collection global settings. This new message is generating lots of support calls and concern from our users who think their private libraries are suddenly accessible externally. It should only say this if either the library or a document within is actually shared with a non-Office 365 native user

  20. SharePoint Online Calendar, the “All Day Event” in Quick View is locked

    Unlock the "All Day Event" field in Quick View so entries can quickly be updated. We have multiple "Time Off Calendars" for various departments. We workload groups move, data is copied from one calendar to another but the "All Day Event" data does not copy over. If the "All Day Event" is not selected the Weekly Calendar view displays multiple vertical lines instead of names. To correct, each individual entry must be opened, the "all day event" selected and saved. This is very time consuming (typically 100+ entries) but necessary for the weekly calendar to display accurate date.
