  1. Enable the edit properties dialog when uploading documents with drag&drop

    Upload via Drag&Drop is very easy but it is hard to set the metadata this way.
    you need 3 clicks - no user does this much work to set metadata

  2. Enable folder Download option

    I contacted support and currently only way to download folder is using IE and open the folder inside Explorer.

    Support for other browsers would be great. Alternative is to compress content of folder to ZIP and download that file, like it's available in Microsoft Account version of OneDrive.

  4. move documents between folders

    Make it easier to move documents between folders. It is now possible to use drag & drop to move to sub folders but there are no easy way to move documents up in the structure.

  5. Show breadcrumb down to folder level in a library

    The breadcrumb becomes fairly useless after you have arrived at Document Library level. Folders are still a very important way for users to organize documents. Once you start going into folders, there is no telling from the navigation controls where you are.
    This could easily be fixed with an improved breadcrumb which shows the path down to the folder level.

    Ideally this should even be an option that you can control from navigation settings, which currently allow zero control over the breadcrumb control.
    This is something you should be able to manipulate through configuration without the need for custom code.

  6. Enable SharePoint auditing for opening and viewing documents

    Please make this feature available for SharePoint Online.

    "For SharePoint Online, the Opening or downloading documents, viewing items in lists, or viewing item properties event is not available."

    For tenant admins and compliance officers, SharePoint audit of document activity is available in the compliance center, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/securitycompliance/search-the-audit-log-in-security-and-compliance.

    For site users, we have anonymized usage data available now. The modern site usage page (siteanalytics.aspx) shows both files with most total views and most unique users who viewed. We have also added a hover card experience in doc libraries, which will show total number of views for that document.

    We are not planning any updates at this time to the classic site collection auditing features.

    If there are additional specific features you’d like to see, please open a new userVoice request.

  7. Drag and Drop Folders to SharePoint

    SharePoint supports dragging files from your desktop into a SharePoint document library, but as soon as you want to drag in a folder containing multiple files/sub-folders this is not supported. You have to recreate the folders manually in document library and then drag in files separately, this consumes a lot of time.

  8. Make an easier way to navigate up when you are in a sub-folder within a document library.

    The 'Navigate Up' button on the library ribbon tab is too hidden for users and it also requires an extra click every time you need to go up. The breadcrumb also requires an extra click because you have to click the 'Browse' tab in the ribbon to see it every time.

  9. Create a new non-NPAPI plugin for Chrome compatibility

    The deprecation of NPAPI plugins in Chrome is affecting some functionality in Chrome. We are specifically having issues with the Open in Client Application feature in document libraries. This no longer works in Chrome by default and will no longer work at all in September once it is fully deprecated.

    Please create a way for the Open in Client Application (and any other features that are enabled by the NPAPI plugin) to work in Chrome. This true cross-browser support would help improve our user adoption and go a long way towards convincing our users of the benefits of continued usage…
