  13. Navigation by Folder hierarchy/explorer three

    Hi,
    for projects, it would be very useful if you could navigate to documents as you would in an "explorer three": projects are organized by WBS - and so usually, documents are organized in the same waqy - leading to the creating of mulitple folders in mulitiple levels. This can make ut difficult to navigate to the documents, as they become "buried" in the folder structure. With the current Sharepoint solution, you will need to go into each folder to see what resides there - in stead i would like to be able to "compress/decompress folders" in an explorer three…

  15. Update version instead of creating ne file while overvriting during copy between two libraries

    If a file is updated loaded to a document library that contains a file with the same name we can overwrite it and the old file is kept in the document history, we have the same behavior if we copy files between folders in a library but if we copy files between libraries and overwrite an existing file a completely new file is created and the history is lost.
    Please add the possibility to update the file if a new version is copied from another library

    既定の "名前" 列で、ビューの "グループ化" が可能となる機能の拡充要望

    Request to expand the functionality that allows "Group By" of views in the default "Name" column

    ■Description(内容):
    現在、既定の "名前" 列では、ビューの "グループ化" 機能の列に設定ができない。
    フォルダーは、"名前" 列以外にプロパティの値を持たないため、フォルダーのグループ化ができない。

    既定の "名前" 列で、ビューの "グループ化" が可能となる機能の拡充を要望します。

    Currently, the default "Name" column does not allow you to set a column for the "Group By" feature in the view.
    Folders cannot be grouped because folders do not have property values other than the "Name" column.

    We request that the default "Name" column be enhanced to allow "Group By" of views.

    Request to improve the stability of the indexing feature


    SharePoint サイト上で検索を行うと検知されないファイルやフォルダーがある。
