  1. Text layout collapses when opening a Word file with Word Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Word Online でファイルを開くとレイアウトが変更されてしまう

    Text layout collapses when opening a Word file with Word Online


    ■Description(内容):
    Word Online でファイルを開くと文字の位置や図形の位置がずれて、レイアウトが崩れてしまう。
    Word クライアントで開いたときと同じレイアウトになるようにしてほしい。

    When we open a Word file in Word Online, the original position of the characters/figures are shifted unintendedly, and the overall layout of the text will collapse.
    Correct this behavior and keep the same layout of the files as we opened them in Word Client.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. New Document Library Experience In place record

    It would be very important to include the "Declare record" action back to new experience action (from the old ribbon).

    Today it is one of the blocker for my client for exemple.

  3. Change "Copy Link" button to copy the "Document ID link" (the one with docidredir.aspx)

    It used to be that when you selected a document, and clicked "Copy Link" (in a site where the Document ID feature was enabled), that you would get the "Document ID Link" (the one with docidredir.aspx). Now when you click the "Copy Link" button, you get the so-called "durable" link. The problem with the durable link is twofold:


    1. It is only a durable link for Office documents. For example, if you move a picture file to another location in the library, the link will be broken.


    2. The durability is limited to the library wherein the document is contained. If you…

  4. Allow setting the number of versions which is to be stored in version history below 100

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    バージョン履歴の保存数について

    Allow setting the number of versions which is to be stored in version history below 100


    ■Description(内容):
    バージョン履歴で保存されるバージョンの数が、最低で 100 に変わっている。以前は 5 などを指定できたのにできなくなり、容量を圧迫し困っているので、以前のように保存するバージョンの数を 100 以下に設定できるようにして欲しい。

    In the version history, the number of versions users can store has changed to at least 100 versions. Previously we were able to specify the number of versions below 100, like 5, but we can’t do it anymore. It is quite inconvenient for us because it uses more space than before.

    For improvement of usability, allow us to set the number of versions to be stored below 100.

    Thank you for…

  6. PDF viewing

    opening a pdf opens it in your stupid PDF viewer, which is a pain to zoom and scroll in. Why not open it in a proper reader

  7. Add Share button for entire list/library

    Hello,
    Can we get a Share Button added to the default view of a list or library that will share the entire library using the same interface as the individual document/list item? Currently to Share an entire list or library you have to go into the list/library settings and manage the permissions.

    Possibly this is by design, but if it was added maybe add a warning that by sharing this will give access to all items in this list? Or do you guys do it because inheritance gets broken when sub items are shared?

  8. File folder/explorer view

    Add a "normal" File Folder/Windows Explorer view to Sites; a la Google Docs or a file server. The new Sites UI is too "webby" and it takes too long to do just about anything:
    1. Can only upload one file at a time.
    2. Can only download one file at a time.
    3. Can't sync OneDrive for Business & Sites files using one client.
    4. Opening OneDrive or Sharepoint Sites from the main login opens another tab. Open a group in your Site and it opens yet another tab. Why can't it just drill down like a normal file folder…

  9. Change document upload action to support management of documents

    Currently, documents are able to be uploaded to a document library that contains required fields without filling in these fields. This logic is flawed. Please let me explain...

    Let's assume that we want to create a workflow that simply modifies the title of an uploaded document based on columns of a content type. To ensure the title is always populated with information, we make a column (we'll use the "Name" column) required on a document library.

    METHOD 1
    If an end user were to click the "Upload" button, they will be able to select their document and click OK. Since…

  10. drag and drop files to grouped library view

    Drag and drop files into a library is working fine....unless you drop the file into a header of a grouped view..... Then the file is NOT uploaded at all.
    What would be nice (and has been working in the past): when dropping a file into a grouped view, the file should assume the metadata for that group.
    Frustrating is that this worked in the past and even now, the group where you want to drop is outlined when hovering above it with the dragged file.
    Already reported this to Microsoft Support (Case #;19765187) but got the answer that this is…

  11. Stop opening documents in edit mode

    When documents started opening in edit mode - it has caused us a lot of problems, logs show that data was updated, because people thought they were in edit mode. Why in the world would this change from read mode to edit mode, it only cause problems - if a document is shared and it opens in edit mode - someone makes a small change or a large change it is saved back to SharePoint with the change. We have a lot of permissions set and this basically bypasses the security to the point that people are afraid to use…

  12. Implement Consistent Check-In Behavior in Modern Document Libraries

    Currently in the Modern Library interface there are several ways to upload/add files. This is great as users need to use the option they are most comfortable with.

    However, in the situation that a library has a required column in the library there is differences in what happens based on what the user does.

    If a user creates a file with the new button, the interface will create the file and set it to “Checked out”.

    If a user uploads a file using the upload button (or drags/drops a single file) the file will upload and be set to “Checked…

  13. Drag and Drop UI consistency

    The Drag and Drop UI seems clumsy for files into libraries. It seems you have to position the dropped item right on the dividing bar between the library header and the document list for drag and drop to work (at least in IE 11, in chrome dropping anywhere on the library seems to work). NOTE that the prompt at the top of the page says drag to any location but it doesn't really mean what is says, since the drop only works for the library itself. Not for example to other libraries listed on the nav bar.

  14. The Content Type filter in document libraries is not working in alternate languages

    When trying to filter data using content type in an alternate language, sharepoint is trying to filter the data using the CTs translated name instead of its original.In this way it doesnt return any result.

  15. Disable Folder Upload

    While there is a setting to disable new folder creation users can still upload folders. When trying to enforce metadata this completely throws a wrench in that plan as uses see the "folder" option under Upload in the command bar and clearly would assume it is something that is fine to do. Please add functionality to disable folder uploads through the command bar as well as drag and drop.

  16. Ability to add version comments when uploading a new file on modern UI document library

    The window for adding version comments with the checkbox for "Add as a new version to existing files" is missing in modern UI document library, but shows in classic experience. Is this feature already removed or still being transitioned from the classic view to modern view?

    In Document Libraries and Lists, there is no feature to restrict uploading files by specifying extensions of files at present.

  18. Smart Filter vs Column Filter should show same filter options

    Using the smart filter vs the filter in the column gives you different results (see link below)

    These columns are set to multiple choice and as you can see the smart filter merges the choice into a string and you cannot filter by these at all, while the simple column filter gives expected results.

  20. Provide the ability to promote the contents of an excel cell to a SharePoint column.

    I have created a SharePoint content type based on Excel template. This template has custom properties linked to the content. It would be very useful if I could promote these custom properties columns in the document library where I am using the content type. see: https://community.office365.com/en-us/f/172/t/434433
