  1. Add Slides from Webinars

    Hi - although the links are useful, it would be even better to have the slide decks here for use amongst the teams.

    Thanks!

  2. Make Links editable

    When creating a new "Link" in a document library, the link's URL cannot be edited. I cannot even find a way to view it. The only way it appears you can edit the URL behind a Link is to create a brand new Link.

    Try it:
    1. Click on New, Link.
    2. Enter an external URL in the "Create link to" section. Such as the Microsoft homepage.
    3. Give it a filename.url
    4. Click Create.
    5. Now, try and view the address of the link you have just created.

    There is no way to view it or edit it. Or…

  3. Provide the availability to upload and display the PowerPoint files in PowerPoint Online as well as printing.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):PowerPointOnlineから印刷を行う際にエラーメッセージが表示される動作について

    Provide the availability to upload and display the PowerPoint files in PowerPoint Online as well as printing.


    ■Description(内容):
    私たちは、SharePoint Onlineのドキュメント ライブラリに保存されたPowerPointファイルをPowerPointOnlineから表示して印刷を実行する際に、"PDFを開く"をクリックした際にエラー表示されアップロードができない状況です。印刷が出来ないのはPDFでのアップロードができないことに起因する事象と考えておりますが、運用上不便であるため、PDFでのアップロードを可能にする機能の拡充を強く要望します。

    Currently, we are concerned about that the PowerPoint files will result in an error and uploading will not be possible when clicking the [Open PDF] for the file saved in SharePoint Online Document Library via PowerPoint Online. If the files cannot be displayed in PDF, it is very inconvenient because the user cannot print them at the same time.

    So that, please provide the availability to upload and display the PowerPoint files in PowerPoint Online…

  6. Document list view: enable wider name column and/or ability to resize

    The file name column is too narrow and the list view does not autosize when the window is expanded. Please enable to resize columns using regular drag, as in Excel for example. As an alternative: make the entire list scale with the window's width. As another alternative, allow users to configure columns width. As yet another improvement: change the flyover/bubble text to always display the complete filename - as it is now even the bubble text truncates the name. sigh

    We often need rather long file names, e.g. "The Clients Name 2018-06-01 description or purpose of file.xlsx".

  7. When we are inside a folder, we should see the metadata of the folder in the right pane until we select the files/folders inside the folder.

    Please show metadata of the folder in the detail pane when user is inside the folder. They should also modify the folder metadata when inside a folder. Bad user experience. Alfresco and other collaboration tools works that way.

  8. Requests for correction on behavior to open in edit mode of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business due to specification changes on MC 1

    When opening Word, Excel, PowerShell files of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business in Office Online with MC 131670 published in Message Center, it opened directly in edit mode.
    As usual, please restore it so that it can be opened in viewing mode by default.
    Or, add setting items so that you can select edit mode or viewing mode as the default value.

  9. Make the PDF files opened in the separate tabs by default via Modern UI.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):ライブラリ内の PDF ファイルの起動について

    Make the PDF files opened in the separate tabs by default via Modern UI.


    ■Description(内容):
    Modern UI の​ライブラリ内の PDF ファイルの起動の際、プレビュー機能にて起動するが、同じタブで開くため、別タブで開くような機能を追加してほしい。

    Currently, I recognized that the Preview Feature launches when opening the PDF files in the Library with Modern UI. As a matter of concern, it will open within the same tab automatically. For ease of use, please implement the feature that can be opened in the separate tabs by default.

    Thank you for your continued support.

    SharePoint Online のモダン UI のサイト コレクションに設置したリストにて、本文が長文の場合や画像を埋め込んだ場合に、全文が表示されず "表示数を増やす" をクリックする必要があるが、デフォルトで全文が表示されるようになる機能の搭載を希望いたします。

    In the list placed on the SharePoint Online site collection via the Modern UI, we are aware that the full text is not displayed in case the body is long or the image is embedded.
    Although we can see the full text by clicking the option “Show more”, it will become more convenient if the full text will be displayed by default.

    Thank you for…

  14. Allow users to set personal default view

    Right now there can only be one default view for everyone in a Document Library - need to allow a default view per user to override Library default view.

    Example case:
    - Read only library users need to see a sorted/filtered view by default, so I set this as the default for everyone.


    • Library contributors need to see an unfiltered view to use the Quick Edit functionality when uploading. They must switch to All Documents view every time they open the library.

    Allow using Content Editor web part and Script Editor web part in the Modern UI as well

    Some Web parts, such as Content Editor Web part and Script Editor Web part, which are available to use in the Classic UI to customize the sites are not implemented in the Modern UI at present.
    In order to improve usability, I hope those web parts will be available in the Modern UI as well.

  16. select by letter of alphabet

    Lists with files in alphabetical order should have an alphabet across the top so you can at least go to the letter of the group of files you want quickly instead of having to scroll through every file every time.

  17. Allow changing the authority setting of the entire site all at once in he Document Library and Custom List.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):アクセス権限の管理について

    Allow changing the authority setting of the entire site all at once in he Document Library and Custom List.


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリやカスタム リストのアイテムごとに権限設定をしている場合、該当のアイテムごとの権限ページに移行し、設定を行う必要があるため、工数がかかってしまいます。サイト内の権限設定を一括で行える機能の実装を要望します。

    We are concerned that the user needs to make settings by accessing to the authority page of each item when setting the permissions for each item in the Document Library or Custom List in a current behavior.

    Therefore, we hope you to make a feature implementation that allows changing the authority setting of the entire site all at once in order to reduce the working time.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  18. View Shared Documents in SharePoint

    Add a column to show which documents have been shared and by whom. This would look similar to this feature in OneDrive for Business and would allow users greater control over sharing and also knowing when and which documents to stop sharing.

  19. Enable "Smart" Upload / Drag and Drop with Automatic Metadata population based on current Filter

    Based on Document Library View / Filter that user is currently looking at - uploading files / multiple of them - should / could automatically populate Metadata of new files uploaded to the library - or uploaded using Drag And Drop. Selecting Content Type shouldn't change this feature.

    This is something that should be available on filtered web parts as well - multiple web parts on one page.

    Maybe To Much - but I'm not afraid to ask. :)

  20. Sharing Folders with External Users Should Allow External User to Access that Folder

    Currently, it is possible to generate a sharing invitation to folders for external users, but when those users attempt to access the folder, they are told they are not authorized.

    Either allow external users to access the folders that have been shared with them or don't allow folders to be shared with external users, but allowing a group member to share a folder with external users, then preventing the invited user from accessing the folder seems a bit half baked.
