    We are viewing items in a list using the “Display all items without folders” setting in the document library view”.
    In order to filter items by folder hierarchy for output and set values for items en masse, I would like to have folder information automatically exist in a column.
    Please add a function to display file paths in a column…

  2. When uploading duplicate data to a SharePoint Online site, I want the function to upload only the difference

    現時点では、SharePoint Online サイトに重複するデータをアップロードする際に、差分のみアップロードする機能の提供には至っていない。
    SharePoint Online サイトに重複するデータをアップロードする際に、差分のみアップロードする機能があれば運用を行ううえで便利なため、差分のデータのみアップロードする機能を要望します。

    At the moment, when uploading duplicate data to the SharePoint Online site, the function to upload only the difference has not been provided.
    When uploading duplicate data to the SharePoint Online site, it is convenient to operate if there is a function to upload only the difference, so we request the function to upload only the difference data.

  4. Smart versioning for document library like backups

    Versioning is a real killing feature but it in real life, it is hard to use as it keeps EVERY changes so we have some pptx of 100MB which takes more than 110GB (!!) with more than 500 versions. Worse than disk space issue, it is useless, because you could not say you need the version 284 dated of 15th of march at 10am or the 285, same day at 11:30 am. Versions should have the option to be managed as backups, ie, we would need to keep all the very latest version from the last week, then a version…

  5. Improvements to behavior when opening Office files in the desktop app is set as the default option in classic UI libraries

    *English follows Japanese

    Improvements to behavior when opening Office files in the desktop app is set as the default option in classic UI libraries


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では、既定でクライアント アプリケーションで Office ファイルが起動するように設定していても Internet Explorer 以外のブラウザーを使用するとブラウザーで表示されてしまうため、他のブラウザーを使用している場合も既定でクライアント アプリケーションにてファイルが開くように動作の改善を要望します。

    At present, even if you set Office files to open by default in the client app, they open in the browser window if you are using browsers other than Internet Explorer. Please change this so that files can be set to open by default in the client app when using other browsers.

  6. Feature to surface View information in SharePoint for documents and pages

    Give an option to export or surface Views/File Statistics information of all pages/documents in a document/pages library in an SPO site. Currently this information can be accessed per each file by going to File -> Details -> Views. We'd like either a report that we can generate or the ability to add these "Views" and "Viewers" as columns in a view.

  7. Can't set Retention Label as none for bulk selection

    When you select files in bulk and apply retention label, it works fine but whenever you have to make retention label for all files as "none" in one go (bulk selection), it never works. But if you change the value of "Content Type" then you can set retention label as none for bulk selection.

  9. Destination picker for "Move to..." and "Copy to..." should remember recently used locations

    When moving or copying documents from multiple locations to a single folder, it is very frustrating and time consuming to have to drill down through the folder structure each time. Please include recently used destination locations alongside "Current Library" and "Your OneDrive" at the top of the destination picker list, similar to how File Explorer's Quick Access works in Windows.

  10. Increase single file size limit from 100GB to 200GB or more...

    With the introduction of 4K video and higher resolution videos, file sizes are always increasing. We need to be able to upload files larger than 100GB

    Please add a page where you can change permissions for a library without going through the document library settings, as a way of accessing it, if you create a permission level with “Manage permissions” assigned in the “Manage lists” area for customizing posting permissions in modern site document libraries.

  13. Default to opening links in desktop app, rather than browser

    When clicking on a link in a PDF (where the link is to a Word doc in SharePoint), have the option to open in desktop app by default, rather than in the browser (Word Online). This option exists when opening files directly from the SharePoint library, but not when opening from a hyperlink.

  14. Modern Browsers ignores library setting to open documents in desktop app

    Office Files open up in browser even though default is set to Open in Client. It happens in Classic UI on Chrome/Edge/Firefox. But works only on Internet Explorer.
    found these: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/sharepoint/edge-ignores-library-setting-to-open-documents-in-desktop-app/m-p/1149324

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/troubleshoot/lists-and-libraries/cant-open-sp-documents-from-chrome

    Want Microsoft to acknowledge it as a bug and provide a fix.

  16. Information management policy - retention policy set at folder level not working in SharePoint Online

    We have followed the steps mentioned in the article "https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-and-apply-information-management-policies-eb501fe9-2ef6-4150-945a-65a6451ee9e9"(Create a policy for a list, library or folder) for setting up retention policy at folder level in a document library and noticed that the SPO Information Management Policy is not taking effect on folders.

  17. Documents library: tile view (title)

    It should be enabled to display "title" in the tile view.

    "Edit current view": you can select that only type and title is displayed - but currently this is only shown correctly in the "list view", not in the tile view. Tile view still shows only name of the document (even the current view is set-up differently).

  20. Document Libraries SP2019 IE11

    SharePoint 2019 only in combination with Internet Explorer has issues with switching from Modern Experience to Classic Experience and back to Modern Experience.
    When you do this actions the icons above the document library aren't correct.
