  4. Replace the term "delete unique permissions" with "inherit permissions from parent"

    We find that many users do not understand the term "delete unique permissions". As result, many sites with carefully constructed unique permissions have inadvertently inherited the parent permissions. This has caused lots of support questions (reinstalling the owners permissions) and rework for the site owners, while no change log, undo option or version history is available.
    Replacing this term with "inherit permissions from parent" might make it easier for people to understand what they are doing.
    (And trust me, this warning is all over our training materials and users still make this mistake)

  5. Need better "Track Changes"

    PLEASE pressure Microsoft to update Word Online and the Word app to offer "Track Changes" in a more user-friendly, visible, desktop-commensurate manner. Thank you!

  6. Better site usage analytics

    There should be more robust analytics on site usage. What is available now is very limited. For example, I can see total page views in the past 7 days, and the trending section for most viewed pages over the past two weeks, but in the trending section it just shows the blue bar, I can't even hover to get a number of page visits. Overall, improvement is needed in the area of site usage metrics.

  7. freeze header rows/columns

    Could we have the option to freeze the header rows/columsn so that they always show no matter how far down we scroll? Would make it much easier to view large amounts of data.

  8. Choix des sites fréquents apparaissant sur la page

    Pour améliorer le visuel sharepoint, il faudrait pouvoir filtrer et/ou supprimer les choix donner quant aux sites fréquents.
    C'est notamment vrai quand vous "vider" un site dans l'objectif de le supprimer et qu'il apparait toujours sur les sites fréquents (et quand vous cliquez dessus, une page s'ouvre avec un message d'erreur !)

  12. Show additional user details in SharePoint Online People Picker

    The SharePoint Online People Picker returns users by First and Last Name for organizational user accounts and First/Last Name + email address for external accounts. For some tenants, such as Educational Institutions, there can be multiple users with the same First and Last Name, likewise there can be a user with two accounts having the same first/last name (e.g. student and employee). With the modern sharing experience, the inability to see an email address when using the SharePoint Online people picker has led to inappropriate sharing with users as those sharing files are unable to discriminate between the user accounts…

  13. SharePoint urgently requires the ability to make simple charts from list data.

    Most other platforms (Salesforce for example) make simple charts available with reports.

    For SharePoint to stay competitive this is a must.

  14. Organize SharePoint Sites I'm Following - Like Planner

    It would be cool if users can Organize the SharePoint Sites they are following. Rather than just having a table of sites, it would be cool if users could group them in a manor similar to adding tasks in Planner.

  15. Microsoft Support should escalate SharePoint bugs internally, and not ask customers to request bug fixes in UserVoice

    Once again Microsoft has reproduced a bug I found in SharePoint, have declared that it's "by design" and asked me to request a fix here in User Voice. There is something very wrong within Microsoft if the Technical support team are unable to escalate issues to the product team. Microsoft need to prioritize fixing the existing core product. Please stop introducing new bugs in new features until the old bugs in the old features are fixed.

  18. OneNote versioning and disabling sync to local app.

    Allow versioning for OneNote Online. (If this is available in some back end admin setting, why does it apply to a Word document for instance, but not OneNote? When you right click on the Word doc, you get versions, if you right click on the OneNote notebook, you do not) Also, to have some option somewhere to not allow a local sync of the online OneNote notebook. So if the user opens the notebook in their local pc app (Windows 10 OneNote app, or OneNote 2016 full install from Office version) they only have a read only version.

  20. Integrate Sharepoint and Teams experience

    THe Teams app and pages and the Sharepoint site for the teams seems to be a disconnect experience. How do I get to the Team's sharepoint site from the Team's site? How do I get to the Team's site from the Sharepoint site? Shouldn't they be blended better?
