      This one came back up to our attention recently. We aren’t yet ready to say we are working on it, but we are considering various ideas for global cross site collection navigation and “meg-menus.” In the meantime, we are also making sure the PnP site has great examples and all available APIs are well documented for building this (e.g. it came to our attention recently there was a set of taxonomy APIs that could help but could be documented better.) Stay tuned!

      • Novosibirsk time zone

        We have issue inside our SharePoint On-Premise farm.

        Time Zone for Novosibirsk should be (UTC +07:00) but we still have (UTC +06:00) -> even if we install latest CU.

        When we check server timezone - looks OK.

        I think issue occurs globally because even on SharePoint Online we observe this issue.

        I have info from MS side that only SharePoint Server 2013 RTM version is OK (shows UTC +07:00)

        Do you know how when U can fix it ? It's product bug....

          • Reinstate design view in Sharepoint Designer 2013

            I can't believe Microsoft would take away a Power User's ability to make some design changes in SharePoint.
            Why would you do that?
            We've just moved over to 2013, I am devastated, I feel like my hands are tied behind my back.
            Please put Design view back in Designer 2013.
            Please.

            • Fix CMIS implementation bugs

              The TCK unit tests are the standard unit tests for CMIS implementations

              Please:
              1. Run the TCK unit tests on SharePoint
              2. Fix the bugs that show up in SharePoint's implementation

              Thank you!

              PS: The easiest way to run the TCK tests is to download http://chemistry.apache.org/java/developing/tools/dev-tools-workbench.html and press the "TCK" button.

                • Introduce markdown syntax for authoring content

                  As a systems engineer/developer, I love the office 365/sharepoint platform. The one thing that's stops me from using it for everything is the lack of a productive way to generate content.

                  Editing content in the UI is horrendously slow and painful, I just want to be able to author content quickly with markdown syntax, and publish my content/documentation quickly and easily.

                  What's microsofts standpoint on this? Am i the first to request this? (i highly doubt i'm the only one who wants this...)

                  Cheers,

                  Morgan

                  • Ability for administrators to disable office online chat

                    We have shared class notebooks setup enabling classes of 30+ students free range to chat to each other. As you can imagine teachers are finding this hard to manage, especially when they're off task inside of a program where work is also taking place; making it incredibly easy for the sneaky students to hide their off topic discussions!

                    Furthermore the chat logs are not saved anywhere - this really does open up a host of child protection issues where cyber bullying could take place within the school without any logs of it ever happening.

                      At present Micosoft.Sharepoint.Client library supports moving Lists and Folders to Recycle bin using the .Recycle() function but The Web class does not have something similar.

                      The SPWeb.Recycle is only available to Server Object Model. Is there a possibility of the functionality getting extended to CSOM in the near fut

                      • Bring Back Script Editor Web Part in "Modern" SharePoint

                        The Script Editor Web Part has been replaced by the Content Editor (which does a very limited iframe) and the new SPFX stuff. I am not a developer, but knowledgeable in HTML, Javascript, CSS. The SEWP met some very complex use cases (targeted for replacement by SPFX), but also some very simple use cases.

                        Example: Insert a formatted single HTML button, something that is big, draws attention, and encourages the user to click it to start an action.

                        What might be just 2 lines of code, has now turned into (what looks like) hundreds of files of deployment, installing all…

                        • promoted sites loss of audience targeting links

                          The new landing page for the Sharepoint button has lost the ability to create a new landing page for promoted sites and then add audience targeting to those links.

                          or have a landing page or let us admins configure where the sharepoint button goes to. At present there isnt any flexibility there.

                          • I hope Cascaded lookup column and Chart webpart in SharePoint 2016

                            While SharePoint is a great cohesive tool with Office suite, there are somoe features which are far lagging in terms of the offering from Office. If we can bridge the gaps between those that will be great in SharePoint 2016. e.g. Cascaded Lookup column and edit in data sheet view feature for the same is one. Another one is Chart web part which is an essential business need but not available.

                            • Make "Sites" in Office Save As show all available SharePoint sites

                              When saving as in Office desktop apps (Excel etc.) you can link to a SharePoint team site. However, if you are a member of multiple sites there is no user-friendly way to navigate all of these sites through this link. For SharePoint installations with multiple sites this is clunky, you have to find the URL of the site you want and insert it in the address bar.

                              The functionality should be that when you click Save As -> "Sites - [company name]" it should show you a list of all available sites, then you can navigate to the sub-site/library of…

                              • SharePoint 2013 workflow email to distribution list

                                I found out after contacting Microsoft Support that you are not able to use the "Send Email" action in SharePoint 2013 Designer to send the email to a distribution list (group type of distribution or security). In order to send an email in a SharePoint workflow to a distribution list (allmanagers@company.com), you have to use a SharePoint 2010 workflow.

                                I was informed that SharePoint 2013 workflows can only send emails to organization users.

                                Please allow the ability to send to a distribution list within the GAL/org. This is a very common request so changes in recipients do not…

                                • Allow the classic experience for SharePoint home page's search results as a default option instead of the modern UI

                                  We like the new modern SharePoint home page in O365, however the search results page off the home page is sub-optimal. The page doesn't allow customizations or branding, and doesn't support a number of technologies found in the classic page, most by default, such as refiners, Yammer search, relevancy sorting options, language specification, profile matches, etc. We've invested lots of time in search customization and improvement as well and would like to ensure we can surface our work (as well as the out-of-the-box capabilities) by default -- without users having to click the "Switch to Classic" link each time they…

                                    In Outlook 2016, when you add a SharePoint file as an attachment to an email, the file it is attached as an edit link, which automatically breaks the permissions inheritance when the recipient opens the file (even if he or she already had access to it). You have the option to send the attachment as a view link, which also breaks the inheritance or as a copy, but it is not possible to attach the file as a direct/restricted link. This means that it is not possible to attach a link to a document in Outlook 2016 without breaking the…

                                    • Disable Install Office alert

                                      Allow users to disable the alert for "don't miss out download and install office on your computer. install now" It wont go away for my co-workers or myself since we have multiple O365 tenants we installed the software from.

                                      • Allow external users to upload files

                                        It is important to my business to exchange files with my customers. Often I need them to upload files. They can only do so if they have an MS account. This shouldn't be necessary. I shouldn't have to require my customers to either create a MS account or use their personal accounts to do business with me.

I shouldn't need…

                                        • Allow easy management of "Add an app" page (addanapp.aspx)

                                          Make it possible to administer the way how "apps" are displayed in the "Add an app" page (addanapp.aspx).

                                          x Possibility to add to noteworthy part even for list templates from the site template gallery
                                          x Possibility to hide default apps like document library (as we have a custom library template containing meta data)
                                          x Order of the apps displayed
