  2. security inheritance

    Allow both local permissions and inherited permission son an object.

    The same way both Windows file server and every other product on the market works.

    Sharing a document with someone should not break that objects security inheritance this causes huge pains in SharePoint and removing inheritance should only be something that is done on a small number of items for specific reasons rather than a requirement for every item that might be shared.

  3. I prefer classic sharepoint

    I really don't like the new theme.

    I much prefer the original sharePoint theme. It is very hard to tell folders from files in the new theme. The flat colors make everything blend.

    I also don't like that it becomes harder to copy a link to share. Dropbox lets you right click and copy the link. If you use your new theme, you have to click multiple times, select a link type and all kinds of stuff just to share a link.

    This is why I'm still using the classic style using the "Return to classic sharepoint" but sharepoint seems…

  5. Create short links by default

    Make short links by default so that humans can read them out over the phone or copy and paste them with confidence.

  6. 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.

  7. Customize SharePoint Sites Page

    Give users the ability to customize this landing page. For example, I would like to see all of the sites I am following instead of just my frequent ones or suggested ones. I know there is a search box, which I sometimes utilize, but it's not very noticeable so I forget it's there. Also, what's the difference between "Frequent" sites and "Recent" sites listed on the left? Seems redundant to me yet there are different sites listed? Doesn't make that much sense to me. Thank you.

  13. Select the default language of automatically created sites

    I would like to select the default language of automatically created sites.

    Default language of My Site(included OD4B) depends on default language of "My Site host", and that depend on the language used when tenant was created.  As a result My Site(included OD4B) may be unintentional language settings. I would like to be able to change the language of any sites.

    Currently we have some issues.

    e.g. Cannot change the language of my alert on OneDrive for Business.

  14. Mulitple Folder Upload

    I can't seem to upload folders of documents, so I have to create folders and then upload the files in batches. It would be much quicker to upload a whole batch of folders.

  18. allow us to change default name for sender field in send an email activity SPD workflow

    Once we are using workflow in SharePoint Designer to send an email on a list items on SharePoint Online, it will send an email to use. There is a default sender name (which is site name) and default sender email address (which is no-reply@sharepointonline.com). we need to be able to change "default email sender name" as site name doesn't make sense for those who receive it.

  19. Allow editors to change the orientation of an image **in the browser**

    It would be great if editors could rotate/flip pictures within the browser in SharePoint Online (in both O365 and the upcoming SharePoint mobile app).

    Scenario: We have many field users who access SPO from mobile devices and in the course of their work take pictures which they need to upload into SPO. EXIF data is not utilized when uploading pictures from a mobile device into either document libraries or picture libraries.

    I have tried uploading pictures from both Android and iOS devices, into both picture and document libraries, and viewing them in FF, IE and Safari. In each scenario, the…

  20. 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…
