  1. New Experience - Drag & Drop into meta-data grouping from desktop

    I have a document library with meta-data associated and they appear in a grouped by view. This meta-data field is mandatory.

    Currently when i drag & drop from the desktop, it creates the list item without associating the meta-data. I must then perform another action to tag the content & check the file in. Very annoying & time consuming.

    It would be great if i could drag & drop directly to the grouping of existing content and SharePoint would automaticaly set the values for this new item based on where i'm drag & dropping.

    This would save users a great…

  2. durable links

    Durable links should be valid even after any action like rename doc/rename lib/move across webs/move across site collections....and so on.
    There was a lot of promises but now Durable links are not better then Document ID. They are worse.

    Make it useful not useless. Lets make documents durable links really durable. I don't care how the technology is called. Me and our customers really need solid technology that is available already on different platforms. Why you don't you use search to be used if document is moved across site collection? Why only Microsoft documents reflect Durable links? Why there is…

  4. Please let me drag Outlook attachments into SharePoint

    Something I find myself wanting to do pretty frequently is storing an email attachment somewhere into SharePoint or OneDrive for Business. I want to simply drag the attachment from Outlook directly into SharePoint or OneDrive in the browser. Alas, I cannot. I am forced to save the attachment somewhere (my Desktop, most likely) then either drag+dropping it into SharePoint/OneDrive or using the upload function in SharePoint/OneDrive to get it uploaded.

    It should be easier than that. Microsoft, please consider adding this functionality to get even more user-friendly integration between your suite of products.

  7. File folder/explorer view

    Add a "normal" File Folder/Windows Explorer view to Sites; a la Google Docs or a file server. The new Sites UI is too "webby" and it takes too long to do just about anything:
    1. Can only upload one file at a time.
    2. Can only download one file at a time.
    3. Can't sync OneDrive for Business & Sites files using one client.
    4. Opening OneDrive or Sharepoint Sites from the main login opens another tab. Open a group in your Site and it opens yet another tab. Why can't it just drill down like a normal file folder…

  9. Image Library Navigation Improvement

    When you click an image from a gallery in thumbnail view it currently takes you to the images properties. It'd be better if it opened the picture for a larger preview, with a small cog for options to then change the properties.

    The ability to navigate left and right to other pictures in the same album from this would be perfect.

    Most users would want to click it to view a larger image, not the properties of that image.

  10. Allow selective sync for SharePoint

    Now that sync is available for SharePoint libraries, can we add selective sync for selecting specific files or folders for syncing?

  11. multiple document check in

    I need to be able to check in multiple documents at once. I cannot be wasting time checking in 30 documents one at a time! This feature is available on classic SharePoint. Why would you remove that?

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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
