  1. Open with Explorer

    The previous post located was closed. Our organization uses Internet Explorer because that is the only browser that supports Open with Explorer. Why is that? Why would Microsoft roll out a new browser without the same functionality? Everyone works directly in SharePoint - we do not want them synching to OneDrive as that has caused problems. The master set of files is in SharePoint and should always be the files used. Note that we are still using Classic sites.

  4. Ability to add comments to particular section of photo or video like what Dropbox for Business offers. This is widely used by creative teams

    Ability to add comments to particular section of photo or video like what Dropbox for Business offers. This is widely used by creative teams when collaborating on images with vendors and within teams. The feature allows you to point at a section of an image and add a comment, on videos it posts a comment with the timestamp that a reviewer can click to jump to the actual section.

  6. Show previews of the images in the document library folder

    It would be convenient if we could see preview list of the image files in the document library without opening the file each time. We currently have to open the folder to see the images.

  7. Assign drag n dropped files into Document Set default Content Type

    When you drag and drop files into a Document Set which have a custom content type assigned, the files are still assigned with the standard "Document" content type (even if it's not assigned to the Document Set). We would like to have the files assigned the content type we have defined for the Document Set.

  12. Sort thumbnails by column

    It would be great if you could sort Thumbnails in a Picture Library into groups (as you can with files and folders). Right now I am able to sort thumbnails according to a specified column. I would just like to have them grouped into a expandable/collapsible group. As it stands, it's impossible to tell where a thumbnail has been grouped, unless you change the view completely to files.

  14. Customize sharing link

    When you share a file in SharePoint Online via a link, the link is very ugly and long. Especially if the link is to be sent to external service providers, this is not nice. A function to define these links yourself would solve the problem.

  16. Block Download as the default for read-only links

    When sharing files read-only externally from sharepoint, we select the block download option before sending the link.

    It would be great if we were able to set a default behaviour for block download. It can be done for resitricting editing.

  18. Launch the Outlook client when clicking on .msg or .oft files

    .msg や .oft をクリックした時に Outlook クライアントが起動するように機能を拡充してほしい。
    Launch the Outlook client when clicking on .msg or .oft files


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリで、[ライブラリ設定] - [詳細設定] で [クライアントアプリケーションで開く] を有効にすると、Excel や Word のファイルは、ポップアップの [許可] をクリックするとクライアント アプリケーションでファイルを開くことができるが、.msg はクリックしても ブラウザーで開く動作となり、クライアント アプリケーションで開けない。
    設定を無視した動作だと思うので .msg をクリックした時もクライアント アプリケーションでファイルが開けるようにしてほしい。
    また、.oft をクリックした時も、ダウンロード ボタンを押さなくてもクライアント アプリケーションでファイルが開けるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, in modern UI document libraries, enabling “Library settings – Advanced – Open in desktop app” will allow Excel and Word files to be opened in the desktop client after clicking “Allow” on the popup. However, clicking on .msg files will open them in the browser rather than the desktop client. …

  19. Adjust modern Manage access panel for better overview

    When assigning permissions directly to document library, the sorting of the user list in Manage Access panel is confusing. First the sitecollection admins are displayed, which is hidden in classic view. The business owner of the site usually doesn´t know this person (technical admin), lose confidence in system and is trying to remove it from list. When switching to classic view via "Advanced" the user is not displayed in the list.
    Please adjust the listing in modern "Manage access" according to classic approach.
