  1. add the feature that could enable for me to jump to another page.

    I am currently inserting the [table] into a page, but am unable to reach the targeted page without several scrolls because of the longer table in longitudinal direction with the increased numbers. I am aware that I might be able to move to the anchor with the edited source tagged to HTML, but I hope the defaulted feature to be available that could enable for me to jump within a page, instead of inserting a HTML tag.

  2. Possibility to set warnings on the new Sharepoint news from sites page

    It would be great to have the option to receive notifications on the new Sharepoint "News from sites" page so we’d be able to manage notifications on a per site basis through the individual sharepoint sites.

  3. Modern calendars

    Modern pages, lists and libraries look great and all fit together nicely.

    The other main thing we use here is the calendars which are still looking classic, which means inconsistencies in the quick links layout as well as other things which viewing a calendar.

    I can't find anything about when Calendars are going to be modernized.

    Hopefully soon!

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion and voting on it. We have two events/calendar solutions in modern pages today. The events web part has card based event tiles, powered by events lists. You can roll-up events from multiple sites into one page, but there isn’t currently a wall calendar view.

    Alternatively you can select to leverage a group calendar, and pull all of your events (including recurring events) from Exchange. This too is a compact card based view.

    While we understand a wall calendar view is desirable, we’re not working on it at this time.

  4. implement the additional feature that enables to disable the "Recent Online Document" normally displayed within Office 365 Portal.

    I hope the feature to be available that enables to disable the "Recent Online Document" normally displayed within Office 365 Portal due to our concern about a security issue if some of the crucial documents could be shown in the Portal during the presentation to introduce Office 365's features.

  5. Link open in current page/tab

    Make hyperlinks in Sharepoint open in the same tab, instead of every click opens in another page. At least make it an option somewhere for people who like everything open in a new tab.

  6. Push notifications for news on mobile phone for sites that I follow

    We are using the SharePoint Online Modern News feature. We love it. I've got the SharePoint Online Android app installed on my smartphone. I follow a few sites. I would like that the app sends me a push notification message on my phone for all new news articles that exist on sites that I follow. Would be so nice!!! Thanks guys!!

  7. Keep classic SharePoint

    Each time I open SharePoint it opens in the, well, not the classic view of SharePoint. It's nice that it has a link to switch it back to "Return to classic SharePoint". I like that interface better and always switch to it. Is there a way to persist that selection, to keep it in my setting, or is there a way to get rid of this new look? Just do it!

  9. Improve Highlighted Content search filters.

    The Highlighted content' app is great and very useful, however the filtering capability is too limited. Please improve the ability to narrow down the search results.

  10. PDF's to open in Adobe Acrobat

    When opening PDF's there needs to be an option to open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat rather than just in the browser. Opening in browser is OK for reading PDF's but if you want to work with them properly, you really need to be able to use Adobe.

  13. expand the Sharepoint online url file pathname character length.

    We just migrated from the an older version of Sharepoint and are finding that the new version is not friendly to longer urls and is creating problems in opening files and editing it. We are having to reorganize content and move files UP to a higher level folder to help reduce the the pathname. Not user friendly or smooth transition.

  14. Handle image thumbnails correctly. No black background on images with transparency.

    When you upload PNG files with transparency to a photo library, their thumbnails versions have a black background. If the image you've uploaded has any black in it, it will be rendered invisible because of this and the image will look broken. Please fix this and display images with transparency the same way nearly every other web application does - with a white background or a checkered background to show transparency.

  15. Add Confluence type capabilities to SharePoint Wiki

    Atlassian Confluence is offering a bunch of wiki capabilities that make using the wiki as an effective collaboration tool very easy. I think if SharePoint could create similar solutions it would be very beneficial towards helping organizations maintain living wiki libraries. Some examples...


    • Allow users to create wiki page templates (also perhaps offer out of box wiki page templates to suggest best practices)

    • Improve the organizing experience for wiki pages. While the typical library experience is OK I think offering a parallel drag, drop hierarchy with a drill down experience would provide a more natural navigation structure for user in…

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
