  1. Prevent the garbled characters for the folder/files name via Browser View.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):圧縮 zip フォルダーをドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードした場合に、ブラウザーから確認した際のファイル名文字化けについて

    Prevent the garbled characters for the folder/files name via Browser View.


    ■Description(内容):
    Windows 10および Windows 7 のどちらにおいても、圧縮 zip フォルダーをドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードし、ブラウザーから確認を行うと該当フォルダー内のファイル名文字化けが起きています。そのため、この文字化けが回避できる機能の追加を希望します。​

    We recognized that the file name in the zip folder is garbled when uploading the compressed zip folder to the Document Library and confirming them by the browser (It occurs for Windows 10 and Windows 7). Because of this event, the users have a difficulty in finding the right file smoothly.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved to prevent the garbled characters regardless of single/double byte characters as soon as possible.

  2. Modern filters dont show all used metadata values in the list/library

    Modern filters don't show all 'used' metadata values in the list/library, metadata filter values are only shown if they appear on the first page.

    Simply put if you have items not shown on the first page, their associated metadata values will not show in the filters meaning users wont even know they exist.

    We cant use Modern views because of this, users keep reporting that they cant find items they know exist. its a total white wash...

  4. Column width resizng should be more discoverable

    Column width resizng in modern doc lib should be made more discoverable. Today you can resize by hovering the cursor between column headings and drag the divider. however the divider is not visible at all unless you hover over. would be great to make it light grey or something.

  7. Enable deleting the version history for the files at once in SharePoint Document Library.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):バージョン履歴の一括削除について
    Enable deleting the version history for the files at once in SharePoint Document Library.


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点での SharePoint Online の機能ではドキュメント ライブラリなどに保存されているファイルのバージョン履歴はファイル毎でしか削除を行うことできない。
    また、バージョン履歴の保持数を保持しているバージョン数よりも少ないバージョンに設定を変更しても、アイテムの編集を行わない限り古いバージョンが保持されたままの状態となる。
    作成されているバージョンをサイト単位またはライブラリ単位で一括削除や一括でバージョン履歴の保持数を指定した値に変更する機能の追加を希望いたします。
    Currently, we can only delete the version history of files stored in Document Library by each file.
    Also, the old version will be retained unless we edit the items when we change the setting of the preservation numbers of version history to less than we preserved.

    Therefore, we hope to add the feature that can be bulk deleted versions by each site or library or change the preservation number of version history to the…

  8. Modify the picture of thumbnails freely by the user via modern UI.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリのアイテムを上部に固定した際のサムネイル画像の変更できる機能の実装を希望します

    Modify the picture of thumbnails freely by the user via modern UI.


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリ内によく使う SharePoint Online 外のリンクを用意し、上部に固定して表示しているが、サムネイルが同じなので分かり辛いためサムネイル画像を変更できる機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, I put the external link (in which frequently used in Document Libraries) fixedly displayed at the top of the site in SharePoint Online. Since thumbnails seem like the same picture, the users have a difficulty in seeing the image to reach the appropriate site.

    For improve usability, I hope the feature to implement that enable changing the thumbnail images freely by each link via modern UI.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  10. Copy - Move files : allow Site search

    The copy or move function in modern document libraries is not usable if there are many site collections or libraries. we should have a search allowing us to select quickly a site (such as the Sharepoint Search returning sites) and a Library

  11. View in File explorer

    The option to View in File Explorer (modern view) and Open with Explorer (classic view) stopped working for our O365 SharePoint document libraries recently. When in modern view if we select the option to View in File Explorer from the list of available library views we see the library return to classic mode but File Explorer never launches. If we attempt to use the Open with Explorer option from Classic mode ( Ribbon> Library Tab> Connect & Export section ) we also see that file explorer never launches. This was working fine for many of our users as of mid…

  12. Allow mailmerge using SharePoint (and/orOneDrive) based lists and document

    Allow Office 365 Word/Excel mailmerge functionality when the files are stored on SharePoint (Online or on-premises).
    As per: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficesharepoint-msowinother-msoversion_other/word-mail-merge-with-excel-document-in-a/81cd913e-9a57-4bf8-99ca-a766b57b2531
    The Office client people I know seem to think this is a SharePoint Online limitation, while the SharePoint people seem to think the Office client team need to sort this.

  14. Make the column that displayed in tile view can be change to other column

    *English follows Japanese

    ドキュメントのタイルに既定で表示されている列名を別の列名に変更

    [Office 365 グループ サイト] または [SharePoint サイト] において、ドキュメント ライブラリを [タイル] 表示にした場合、[タイル] の下の部分に既定で表示される [タイトル] と [更新者] の情報を別の列の名前に変更したい

    Make the column that displayed in tile view can be change to other column
    In either Office 365 group sites or SharePoint sites, if you change it to tile view in the document library, it will display the info of “tile” and “Updated by” in the bottom part of “tile” by default.
    I would like to change it to other column’s info, so please improve the feature and make tile view can be changeable.

  15. Master Data List for Lookups spanning site collections

    Lookups are the best way for us to leverage external data, but also leverage that data through the search function, filtering, etc. With that said, Lookups have severe limitations as they are currently tied to site collections. As a result, we need to repeat lists from one site collection to another. It would be wonderful if, just as companies move to a single Master Data Repository, SharePoint can have a single master lookup list that's used across multiple site collections. This would allow us to retain information in SharePoint and ensure it stays up to date with the master data…

  17. un-share shared document

    Members can share documents and folders in SharePoint, but they cannot un-share the documents they shared. I think an option to do this would be useful.

  19. 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

  20. Enable "View in File Explorer" in Edge

    Please allow "View in File Explorer" in Edge (and other browsers would be nice).

    Windows is CONSTANTLY prompting to switch from IE to Edge, despite several functions only being available in IE.
    The O365 team even went so far as to make IE super easy to login to the portal via the account on which I am already logged into on windows, all the while IE added a "New Tab in Edge" option. Seems like a huge disconnect between Sharepoint and Windows/every other MS team to only allow these features in IE when every other MS team is moving away…
