  1. check-in / check-out button should be more visible

    The ability to check in and check out a document is hidden behind an ellipsis (...) icon in the navigation bar at the top of the library. Without checking in a document, my teammates can't see the document - so this functionality is very important and should be more obvious.

  2. Connect to Outlook oprion in New Experience Document Libraries

    In Classic experience Document Libraries there is the option to 'Connect to Outlook', this is used when connecting Document Libraries to third party email solutions such as Repstor.

    Is there any expectation that 'Connect to Outlook' will be added to the New Experience Document Libraries?

  3. Different type of view in SharePoint document library (Root & Sub Folder) does not work anymore with "modern experience"

    Different type of view in SharePoint document library (Root & Sub Folder) does not work anymore with "modern experience"

    Enable content type management and creating different default views for Root and subfolders does work and is displayed/switched correctly in classic experience but not in modern!

  5. Select Folder in Document Library to store email attachments

    When saving documents from email. Need the ability to select the Folder to put the file in rather than just let it drop in the general Documents folder.

  7. Add documentlibrary setting for opening in view or edit mode

    Previously the default behavour was to open in Read mode, and then actively change to Edit mode - with the latest updates the default is to open in Edit-mode.
    This causes Word Online to save the second the user opens the document, and thereby rendering the "Edited by" and "Last edited"-fields completly useless, as it in effect just shows who opened the document last.

    It also causes users to make a lot of accidental changes to documents as well.

    Since users are complaning about both the default behaviours, why not add a setting that let's the admins control how files…

  8. Bring back ability to edit HTML files in Modern File Text Editor

    I LOVE the new Text Editor available on Modern Document Libraries to edit files directly in the browser. I use this feature ALL THE TIME. However it appears a new "feature" in document libraries is to preview HTML files and you have removed the ability to edit these files in the Modern Text Editor... BOO! I say.. BOO! Bring back the ability to edit HTML files in the Modern Text Editor.

  9. Don't use the recycle bin when moving files

    Just spent a whole weekend very very slowly clearing items from recycle bins after moving hundreds of GBs from one SharePoint library to another, as our tenant ran out of space due to the duplication.

    Either:
    • don't make a copy in the recycle bin - just move the files
    • make retaining the copy optional (
    • or, at the very least, provide a warning

  11. See full file names

    Make it so we can see the whole file name when hovering, or allow us to change column widths.

  12. Provide the feature to acquire the audit logs of List items

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    リストアイテムに対する操作を対象としたログを取得できる機能について

    Provide the feature to acquire the audit logs for activities in List items


    ■Description(内容):
    ライブラリを対象とした監査ログ機能はあるが、リストアイテムを対象としたログを取得できる機能がないため、今後実装してほしい。
    リストアイテムの編集日時、更新者などの情報が取得できる機能がほしい。

    Currently, we can acquire the audit logs of Library. However, there is no feature available to acquire the logs for List items.

    I hope the same feature will be available for the List items as well so that we can acquire the information such as “edited Date and Time” and “Updated by” of List items.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  15. Restore entire recycle bin

    There should be a feature that allows you to restore the entire recycle bin. A colleague accidentally deleted 12,000 files and the way I am doing it takes AGES!

  16. Training filters

    After completing a training, it would be beneficial to add a filter so that we can see the trainings that we have done and still need to do.

  17. Picture library folder thumbnails

    We would like to see the folders within a picture library show a thumbnail of the photos inside that folder rather than a generic folder icon tile.

  18. Column width after scroll

    It´s a good idea to be able to adjust the column width. But if I want to adjust the column for Document Name to see the whole name, I need to scroll all the way back up again if encounter a document with a longer name than when I did the adjustment. Maybe the column headers should be fixed and not be part of the scroll? Or maybe it should be possible to adjust the width not only at the column headers? A possibility to set a column to a fixed width would also be nice :)
