  2. Keep classic SharePoint layout

    Please provide an option for classic SharePoint to be the default layout. It is time consuming to have to switch back to classic every time I access SharePoint.

  5. Save "Return to classic Sharepoint" setting

    If I use the "Return to classic SharePoint" link, keep this setting saved per user so they don't have to select it every time.

  8. openen in nieuw tabblad

    herstel weer dat bij aanklikken van "Collega zoeken" (in bovenste balk) deze subsite in een apart tabblad geopend wordt (wellicht ook van andere applicaties). Dat werkt prettiger, beter voor het aangaan van de samenwerking en zorgt voor minder veelvuldig openen en sluiten van applicaties

  10. Regarding the feature to fix the column width for the list or document library

    リストやライブラリの列幅の設定機能を要望
    Regarding the feature to fix the column width for the list or document library


    ■Description(内容):

    現在、モダン UI のリストやライブラリでは、列幅を一時的に変更が可能な機能が存在するが、列幅を固定する機能ではないため、改めてリストやライブラリへアクセスすると、デフォルトの列幅で表示されてしまう。
    クラシック UI では一時的にも列幅の変更ができない。
    アイテムによって列の情報が見づらいことがあるため、管理者が列ごとに幅の既定値を設定する機能の実装を要望いたします。

    Currently, we have the feature to adjust the width of column on lists or document library with Modern UI.
    However, the adjustment is temporary, and the width of column will be reverted to the default once users access again those list or library. (This feature is not implemented on Classic UI).

    Some lists or library have large information for their column, so we hope the feature will be implemented allow administrators to fix…

  11. DD/MM/YYYY Date format

    Dates are in the US format despite all of our settings being UK. Date formats should match the region or have the ability to be set manually with another setting.

  12. Update the Contacts list

    The Division Contact list for DMT needs to be updated. Many of the people on the list are in new roles or no longer with the company. Also, should list contacts for Technical and CRM; they are not even on the list.

  13. Allow users to open new pages in the same tab

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    タブの複製を制御し、デフォルトで 1つのタブで更新するようにしたい

    Allow users to open new pages in the same tab


    ■Description(内容):
    デフォルトでは常に新しいウィンドウが開くようになっていますが、タブが複製されないように制御する機能を追加してほしい

    By default, the new tab will be opened every time when we navigate to another page from Office 365 pages. For example, when accessing a SharePoint site page from Office 365 home, the SharePoint site page will be opened in another tab automatically. It is inconvenient that we have to keep opening many tabs while we are on Office 365 pages.

    In order to improve usability, we hope the option will be provided to allow users to open a new page in…

  14. TechCommunity Site as Knowledge Community Site Template

    Office365 provides a great avenue for knowledge management and collaboration. But there is not any standardized template available to setup a knowledgebase. I like techcommunity site(https://techcommunity.microsoft.com) a lot and Microsoft did a great job in creating the community .It would be great to see the same Site as Standardized template in SharePoint.This would be very helpful in creating a knowledge community, organize information and for user engagement.

  15. Change page load order on SharePoint homepage (Following > Recent > Featured Links)

    Change the page load order on SharePoint homepage. At present it seems the Featured Featured Links load first ,then Recent, then Following. I often find myself clicking on a Featured Link just as the page then loads Recent / Following. If they loaded in the order the appear on the fully loaded page this would be avoided.

  17. Link Shared Folders to OneDrive

    I really wish that when you received a folder or document to share, that you could make a link in your personal OneDrive to that shared folder or document. It's clumsy that you always have to follow a link to access the file.

  18. Acquiring access to folders via Sharepoint

    I want to gain access to a folder, but I can't even see it in Sharepoint (access denied, I assume). I suggest you are "allowed" view any folder you provide the full name and directory of, and from there one can request access with one click.

    As opposed to struggling to find a folder/location, and (I presume) having to now lodge an independent IT ticket requesting access to it. This is quite inefficient.

  20. bulk recycle bin restore

    To have clever restore function for restoring multiple items from the recycle bin. For example search for all items deleted by "George" and restore them.
    When people who have offline sync enabled leave our organisation they often delete all their SharePoint synced items. Which deletes them from SharePoint too.
    Another option is to stop people deleting items from local offline sync copy
