  1. Add Table of Contents (TOC) for SharePoint Wiki pages.

    Wikipedia had it implemented years ago. I suggest you to add a dynamically created Table of Contents (TOC) for SharePoint Wiki pages, according to the title-styles used in the documents.

    • Add a feature to enable site level metadata and default values

      A challenge to adoption and use of metadata is getting users to fill in values consistently. There are many scenarios that would benefit from being able to define a value for metadata at the site level and have that automatically push down to all documents/items in that site Examples for the type of metadata that could be set centrally are project name, IDs from ERP systems, commercial sensitivity etc - all of those would be good to filter in search refiners. Content types could deal with this, but use of content types has its own limitations which currently require custom…

        • Renew Surveys

          Since SharePoint 2010 or even SharePoint 2007 surveys didn't change. There is no ribbon to manage surveys, the color of the grapical summary didn't match the chosen look, and so on. Please renew surveys for SharePoint 2016.

          • 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…

            • Broken list alert template

              After some changes rolled out to our Ofice 365 tenant on 1-2 June 2016, emails alerts from announcement lists became totally unreadable in Outlook. Each paragraph is on one line so to read these email alerts users need to scroll right for a long time. No spaces between the paragraphs. All our users have daily email alerts set up on some intranet announcement lists and need to be able to read these email alerts. Can we please have new alert template fixed. Thanks.

              We had this issue logged with MS Support. The following response has been received: "Our higher team…

                • Update the Follow button on a site if the site is followed

                  In SharePoint you can "Follow Site" which adds it to your "Sites" as a quick access point. However, if you are already following a site the "Follow" button below the Suite Bar in the top right corner does not update to something like a gold star and updated text "Followed" or something.

                  • Be aware of the behavior the list templates are not available on Office 365 group sites.

                    I assume the list templates are not available on Office 365 group sites now.

                    The error has been occurred when creating a template of the questionnaire app and deploy to the site. There are many opportunities to create and operate the Office 365 group sites by public users, so that I hope the feature will be implemented that any list templates can be available for all users.

                    • Colors for readability

                      Suggestion: show the date most recently modified instead of the "Modified" column showing the date of origination of that folder.
                      Suggestion: Keep high contrast between color of text -- such as black -- and color of background -- such as light yellow. The reason is readability. This new format with gray letters on a light gray background is not as readable.

                      • improve the method to create communication site.

                        I make the [+Create Site] of [SharePoint] tile with command hidden so as to control user's site creation. As far as I'm concerned, I am currently unable to create the communication site without the [+Create Site] of [SharePoint] tile, and therefore I hope the site to be made via SharePoint admin center as well.

                        • Change the default language after the SharePoint site has been created

                          Though we can change the language settings, but once the site has been created there is no option to change its default language.

                            • Sites Page - make pinned followed sites more prominent

                              The Sites page is a very useful navigational feature in O365. I would like to suggest making it clearer when sites are pinned to the top. Perhaps this could be done by adding a section on the page called Favourites (UK English) so that users are reminded of the sites that I have chosen to give prominence to. So the headings would be: My Favourites, Followed Sites, Recent Sites, and Recommended Sites. An alternative way to handle this might be to create a second set of promoted links tiles that are personal to that user. In other words, individual users…

                                  Allow obtaining a backup of the site where the Publishing Features is activated.

                                  I would like to back up the edited site at present. However, despite having the function of templateizing the site and if the Publishing Features is activated at once so that I feel inconvenience because there is a specification which makes to template the site impossible by the default.

                                  Therefore, I hope the function will be added of obtaining a backup of the site where the Publishing Features is activated.

                                  Thank you for your continued support.

                                  • Save as Site Collection Template

                                    We need a robust solution to make it easy to copy the template of current site collection to another new site collection. It would be nice if the admin can save the current site collection as template in SharePoint Online or in SharePoint Server.

                                    Note that this request is different than Save as Site Template which we already have.

                                    • Calendar feature

                                      I would like a feature to display a Calendar on the site home, not resorting to creating a Webpart page.

                                      Because the features of the Site View will be lost (news, easy text editor, yammer feeds, etc)

                                        Uniform Home Page View - As creator of the team site, I am essentially creating the site, when discussing things over the phone, the conversation goes much quicker when we are looking at the same screen.
