  2. ... document different link types and how to configure them

    I am confused about links to files and folders in SharePoint Online. Especially on their robustness in case the files or folders or any of their parents are moved or renamed. The root cause of my issue is that I am unable to find any documentation on this topic. In one site I see the following kind of links. All were taken from the “…” --> “Copy link” menu. Unique document IDs are enabled.

    1. https://domain.sharepoint.com/:w:/r/tst/dir/[some other dirs]/file.docx?d=[some long id]&csf=1&web=1&e=[some other short id] From a docx file
    2. https://domain.sharepoint.com/:f:/r/tst/dir/[some other dirs]/testdir?csf=1&web=1&e=[some short id] From a folder
    3. https://domain.sharepoint.com/:u:/r/tst/dir/[some other dirs]/email.msg?csf=1&web=1&e=[some short id] From…

  4. Moving folders doesn't work in sharepoint

    Moving folders doesn't work in sharepoint.

    AllItems.aspx?view=xxxxxxxx/controls/folderSelect.js isn't loading correctly. Meaning we cannot move folders cross sharepoint.

  5. 'Publish' documents - can't decide which button to use?

    We are experiencing different results when publishing documents in SharePoint. When using the "Publish" button in the SharePoint ribbon the publishing succeeds, but our users are used to right clicking the document -> More.. -> Publish. When using this right click context menu nothing happens and the document won't get published.

  6. Make it possible to enable/disable the auto-save function in Office on the Web

    ■Title(件名):
    Office on the Web の自動保存有無を設定できるようにしたい
    Make it possible to enable/disable the auto-save function in Office on the Web


    ■Description(内容):
    Office on the Web においては条件によってファイルを開いただけでも更新時間が書き換わります。
    最終更新日時が変更されてしまうと修正有無を確認しなければいけなくなる場合があるため、自動保存の動作をオン、オフ出来る機能の実装を要望します。

    In Office on the Web, in some scenarios, just opening a file may cause the ‘modified’ date/time to be updated.
    Since it may be necessary to check if any changes were made when the ‘modified’ time/date has been changed, please make it possible to enable/disable the auto-save function.

  7. Allow "Check In Comment" column to be shown in a document library view as Multiple lines of text

    There seems to be no way to show the "Check In Comment" column (within a View of a document library in a SharePoint derived from MS Teams) as Multiple lines of text. Consequently, one can only see the first line. That is not very useful for Check In Comments that are more than a few words long.

    It would be great if the team could allow the Check In Comment as Multiple lines of text.

  8. remove the "submit for approval" button in a SharePoint document library or change its functionality

    Having the "submit for approval" button in document libraries is very confusing if you actually need to start a flow for approval (which is a different button having nothing with "approve" in its title).
    Please provide a setting to either change the linked function (e.g. link it with a flow) of this button or to remove it at all.

  9. I want to download all grouped items set as “Second priority column” at once

    グループ化したアイテムを "2 番目に優先する列" に設定したアイテムを含めて一括でダウンロードしたい
    I want to download all grouped items set as “Second priority column” at once


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにて、"2 番目に優先する列" まで設定してグループ化した場合、"最優先する列" に設定したグループのみを展開し、チェック ボックス をオンにしても、画面上部のメニューが消えて一括ダウンロードができない。
    "2 番目に優先する列" に設定したカテゴリをすべて展開、もしくは展開後折り畳みをするとダウンロードができる。
    "2 番目に優先する列" を展開することなく 一括でダウンロードする方法を希望します。

    In document libraries, if you set grouped items as far as a “Second priority column”, only the group set as “Highest priority column” is expanded, and even if you check the box the menu at the top of the screen disappears and it cannot be downloaded.
    It possible to expand all categories set as “Second priority column”, or to expand and then collapse…

  10. sync numerous sharepoint sites at once

    If one drive needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled then all the synced SharePoint sites are no longer synced. Currently to resync you have to sync each site again which can take a long time if you have 100's of sites. Is there a way to sync sites automatically to one drive?

  12. Search suggestions inconsistent with search results

    The search box in SharePoint initiates a search suggestions query with a wildcard, showing more & different documents than the actual query results shown in the document library which have been queried without a wildcard.
    This confuses endusers because in some cases they will see less results than the suggestions showed.

    A microsoft ticket has been logged already, but we were told this was by design.

    Please fix to make this consistent, preferably also making the query results query with the wildcard.

  15. Ability to sort "Modified" from newest to oldest by default

    Currently every time a user goes to a document library, they have to manually click on the "Modified" column to set it to sort from newest to oldest. I would like the option to be able to set columns in a custom view to sort from newest to oldest (or other sorting options) by default.

  16. Ability to rename emails when there is a clash after upload

    if you drag an email into sharepoint and the name is the same as an email that already exists, it prompts you to override the already existing file.

    In the case of emails, often different replies will have the same name (for example "RE: Hello" but the content will be different.

    How about adding the ability to rename the file as part of the upload when this happens?

  17. Free Enstella EDB to PST Converter Tool

    Exchange EDB databases can develop corruption issues over time. The simplest to all such queries will be to use a tool that can Convert EDB to PST.

  18. Provide a method for easily connecting a mailing list in Excel with mail merge Word document

    Provide a method for easily connecting a mailing list in Excel with mail merge Word document when both are in a SharePoint library.
    Currently, it seems that the only way to accomplish this is by synching the folder containing the Excel document with OneDrive. However, the synch isn't working because, according to pop-up message, I'm already synching with a subfolder. However, I'm not seeing a subfolder from that library in OneDrive, either.
