  6. site/ document owners will be informed about outdated information

    The story behind is: In complex Sharepointsystems you will find a lot of outdated Information. Especially if you have no controll about the user community. Therefore it can be helpful to have a link at the bottom of the page/ or at the Top. Which will inform the Owner of the page/ document/library- That the information is outdated. Ideally you can give a description and the sender and the receiver do receive a notification via Flow? It would be great if this can be implemented.

  10. Allow managing the settings of shared links in SharePoint Online.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online での共有リンク設定について

    Allow managing the settings of shared links in SharePoint Online.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business では、権限画面から共有リンクの [リンクを管理します] と進むとユーザーごとに共有リンクの権限変更や共有停止が可能です。
    しかし、SharePoint Online では権限画面から共有リンクの [リンクを管理します] と進むとユーザーごとに管理できずリンクそのものを削除する動作となります。
    SharePoint Online でも OneDrive for Business と同様にアクセス権限の詳細設定画面から共有リンクの個人管理ができるようにしてほしい

    In OneDrive for Business, we can change the access permission level of the shared link and stop sharing for each user by navigating to [Manage links] on the shared link from the screen where we manage access permission.
    However, in SharePoint Online, if you navigate to [Manage links] on the shared link from access permission setting screen, only thing you can do is to…

  14. Allow Multiple Filters in Recycle Bin

    Allow for more than one filter to be applied in the recycling bin (i.e. Name A-Z and created by A-Z) This would make finding files easier and quicker, as it is now there is a lot of scrolling to be done to find certain files - taking a lot of company time.

  16. Widen the columns in Recycle bin

    In the Recycle bin the column is to narrow. Its impossible to see which file I need to restore as I do not see the full Name. Either it should be possible to widen the column or have a help text at the end (drop down box) as on other pages.

  17. Employee Birthday Wishes

    Employee birthday is one of the most important day.
    If the employee receives birthday wishes from different colleagues it gives lots of motivation and a feel good factor.
    So the idea is to have a display/list of employees birthday on the portal. If a colleague feels to wish he/she may do the same on SharePoint.
    Message can be an online greeting (few fix templates) or in writing.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Rohan Joijode

  18. resource calendar

    There is little use for monthly calendars in SharePoint when everyone has an exchange outlook calendar...so what do we need on a shared basis? Resources! People, vehicles, rooms, accommodation, equipment, rentals.......and the only way to achieve this in the SP calendar app is by overlaying everything into tiny squares on a monthly grid, ridiculous! What we wan't is the ability to append resource calendars as rows or columns with dates horizontally or vertically.
