  1. Syncing Folders instead of libraries

    It would be great if the 'sync' option can be similar to OneDrive where we could sync one folder at a time. Syncing a whole library with the limitations is a problem. We encounter too many sync issues and it takes a long time.

  2. Hide Collaborators

    Our users would like to share the same Folder/Document with customers, but do not want the customers to know each other. Box.com has a feature, “Hide Collaborators” to support this use case. We would like to request a similar feature in SharePoint Online.

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

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    モダン UI のサイト ページで使用できる Web パーツについて

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


    ■Description(内容):
    クラシック UI のサイトにて使用できるコンテンツ エディター Web パーツや、スクリプト エディター Web パーツのようなカスタマイズできる Web パーツがモダン UI のサイト ページには実装されていないため、モダン UI のサイト ページにもサイトをカスタマイズできる機能の拡充を要望します。

    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.

  5. "Modern" Libraries Should Respect "List Experience" Setting

    The List experience setting in List Settings / Advanced Settings seems to generally be ignored. I suspect that the user preference from one library is set with a cookie and that choice then applies to some other libraries, even across tenants.

    If you'd like us to use the "modern" library pages, we need a reliable way to turn them on and off - whether for all users or just for ourselves.

    This inconsistent behavior makes it extremely hard to debug issues, not to mention explain the value of the "modern" libraries in the first place.

  6. Allow selective sync for SharePoint

    Now that sync is available for SharePoint libraries, can we add selective sync for selecting specific files or folders for syncing?

  7. Download folder & Multiple files in Sharepoint

    It would be very handy to be able to download folders. Even if they get zipped upon extraction, it would be really useful and make working on line simple.

  8. When using the copy/move file feature, provide the ability to enter metadata for the file in the destination library

    Hey there,
    we have staff who are constantly moving files from one document library to another. We'd love the ability for users to enter metadata for the file for the destination library before the file is copied or moved to that location.

    This would save our staff a lot of time copying the file, and then having to go to the destination to enter the additional metadata required.

  9. Prevent the garbled characters for the folder/files name via Browser View.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):圧縮 zip フォルダーをドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードした場合に、ブラウザーから確認した際のファイル名文字化けについて

    Prevent the garbled characters for the folder/files name via Browser View.


    ■Description(内容):
    Windows 10および Windows 7 のどちらにおいても、圧縮 zip フォルダーをドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードし、ブラウザーから確認を行うと該当フォルダー内のファイル名文字化けが起きています。そのため、この文字化けが回避できる機能の追加を希望します。​

    We recognized that the file name in the zip folder is garbled when uploading the compressed zip folder to the Document Library and confirming them by the browser (It occurs for Windows 10 and Windows 7). Because of this event, the users have a difficulty in finding the right file smoothly.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved to prevent the garbled characters regardless of single/double byte characters as soon as possible.

  10. Auto open in separate tab

    have all documents open in a separate tab so you don't have to continue to go back or loose your place when looking at multiple documents.

  11. Allow the admin to set hide/unhide the display of [feedback] and [Get the Mobile apps] on SharePoint Online porta.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    画面右下の [フィードバック] と [モバイル アプリを入手] を非表示にしたい

    Allow the admin to set hide/unhide the display of [feedback] and [Get the Mobile apps] on SharePoint Online porta.


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint ポータル サイトにアクセスすると、一般ユーザーでも [フィードバック] と [モバイル アプリを入手] が表示される。表示・非表示を管理者が GUI 上で設定できるようにしてほしい。

    When accessing SharePoint Online site, [feedback] and [Get the Mobile apps] are displayed on the right bottom of the screen. I am aware of that they are displayed even when general users accessed SharePoint Online portal.
    In order to improve security, it will be great if the admin can set hide/unhide the display of [feedback] and [Get the Mobile apps]…

  12. Filter pane managed metadata

    It would be really nice if the new filter pane metadata navigation would:
    -show only the used values like the columns filters instead of showing the whole tree.
    -Give the option of typing values with autocomplete (like it used to work in keyfilters)

  13. Organizational Charts

    I really like the layout of the new sharepoint; however, we really need organizational charts available. This is something that is required during client audits.

  14. Allow Content Types to contain Multiple Templates

    When using the Modern interface, the New Button contains a way to create several types of Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) and assign them to the default content type (I.e. Document).

    When you add a custom Content Type to the library these options disappear and are replaced by the option to add only the Content Types (and Link/Folder).

    It would be helpful if Content Types (minimally) had the ability to select if you wanted these options to appear when adding a custom content type (possibly when you didn't supply a template).

    Ideally, it would be nice if you could…

  19. Document Links that work like Symbolic Links

    We have a desired company policy: A document lives in one place. Don't copy. Use versions.

    If users comply, we eliminate uncontrolled growth of "duplicate or similar" documents through copy and rename behavior.

    But there are frequent needs to have the document available in different contexts than can be provided by its master location. Giving different levels of access to different groups of users is one reason. While it can be overcome by assigning permissions directly, it's often easier and more natural to just have the file in the right location (Example: a specific Team channel).

    We want the ability…

  20. Kick or Remove Users that have a SP document Open

    It would be nice if the owner of a document could ‘kick/remove’ users in the document and stop sharing for a period if needed. This would be useful if a guest user leaves a document open on their computer and is no longer active/editing. Also, it can be useful if you want to be the only one in the document for a short period of time for thick client compatibility issues etc. Auto-save should essentially capture anything the guest user updated before they are kicked out and the document is temporarily removed from sharing.
