  1. Save the data: SharePoint Online forms(dialog) customized with PowerApps

    Japanese follows English.

    Improvement on Sharepoint Online with PowerApps will contribute to many users as follows:

    We have customized a Custom list item view / edit screen of SPO(SharePointOnline) with PowerApps.

    (Normal behavior)
    Clicking item of "title hyperlink" from default list view, a customized dialog window comes up front.
    I change it to "edit mode" and can edit the item in the dialog window.

    (To be improved)
    However, when I click on the parent (list view) window behind the dialog, the dialog closes unexpectedly and the data I have edited disappear sadly without saved.
    (I need to re-open the dialog…

  2. Allow Microsoft Flow to be attached to content types

    Add the option in Microsoft Flow to be triggered when a new item of a certain content type is created or modified. This will allow the creation of 1 flow to run a multiple sites which contain a library/list on which the flow needs to run.

  3. Flow Stop sharing a SharePoint folder

    I would like the ability to use Microsoft flow to manage SharePoint folders permissions (Permission list: Full Control | Edit | View) for the following entities users, security groups and Office 365 groups (Operations: Add | Remove | Modify)

    As of today 20191113, the tech article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#stop-sharing-an-item-or-a-folder) says it provide this functionality, yet by testing and through MS support it does not work. This is folder operation in specific and not an item or file

  4. Convert Documents to PDF via REST API or Workflow Action

    It's great that you can convert a document stored in a SharePoint library to PDF by using the item menus, but I would like to automate that capability through a workflow.

    What would be awesome is if I could have a Workflow Action to convert the current item to PDF. If not, then at least expose a REST API so that I could use the Call an HTTP Service to create the PDF file.

  5. Ability to run Flow from library/list webpart

    It is possible to add custom buttons to run flows against documents and list items - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/column-formatting#create-a-button-to-launch-a-flow

    However this only works when the user is in the library or list. If you're on a page and have a library/list web part the flow button is visible but does nothing when clicked. There's also none of the OOB options to run flows associated with the library/list when viewing them via the web part.

    It would be really useful if this functionality was added as most of our libraries and lists are presented via pages on our SharePoint environment.

  6. End-User friendly tool for Workflow

    If SharePoint 2016 includes improvements to workflow, since SPD 2013 is not going to be improved, can I request a new end-user friendly tool so that workflows can be created as easily as they could in SharePoint 2013 with SPD2013. The tool should be free and not a add-in to Visual Studio.

  7. Make it possible to disable PowerApps properly of the Custom List in SharePoint Online.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): SharePoint Online カスタム リスト上部に表示される Flow PowerApps の無効化について

    Make it possible to disable PowerApps properly of the Custom List in SharePoint Online.


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online カスタムリスト 上部に表示される Flow PowerApps について、各ライセンスを無効にしても使用ができてしまう為、ライセンスを無効にした場合使用できないように動作変更を希望します。
    Flow についてはコマンドを実施することで、サイト単位で無効にすることが可能であるが、PowerApps についてはコマンドを実行しても適用されず無効にすることもできない為、PowerAppsの無効化も行えるようにしてほしい。

    Even if we disable each license for Flow PowerApps displayed at the top of SharePoint Online Custom list for the user nevertheless its use is not restricted. For managing the site properly, we hope this behavior will be corrected to that the license will be appropriately invalidated.

    In addition, Flow function can be disabled on a site basis by executing specific commands by now.…

  8. We need to see Flow button in document library search result page.

    Among files listed in document library search result page, when you try to click eclipse to find Flow button, it is not there.

    We need this button to show there so that we can create a Flow or see Flows related for efficient working.

  9. SharePoint 2019 : enable PowerApps and Flow features to Library and List

    In o365 we can directly customize forms and flow with buttons in the List Actions. It's not possible to do it in SharePoint 2019. This is what I expect to have from the Bill Baer annoucement https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Welcome-to-SharePoint-Server-2019-a-modern-platform-for-choice/ba-p/194162

  11. Built-in Workflows and Workflow Designer

    Give us basic workflows and the ability to design new workflows without the need for a desktop designer or third-party tool. Workflows are really important so it is unclear why we still need to activate SharePoint 2010 workflows instead of getting out-of-box workflow capabilities. Microsoft Flow is a nice product but going to a wholly separate website that is not fully integrated with SharePoint is not a very good answer either.

  12. Make it easier/possible to update Managed Metadata fields in SharePoint Designer workflows

    Right now, trying to update a Managed Metadata field in a SharePoint 2013 workflow is almost a nightmare. It use to be that you could pass a string in a particular format (ex. "ID;#Label;GUID") but now you have to build a Dictionary object. And sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

    Please stop this madness. I would recommend a new workflow action like "Set this managed metadata field to this term" or perhaps enhancing the "Set this item" action in some way.

  13. AutoHeight for Multiline Text in PowerApps

    Multiline Text in PowerApps should have the AutoHeight property enabled, so that the Multiline text field grows in height according the size of the text.

    Today this is possible by creating a labl with AutoHeight set as true, setting the width of the label to be the same as the text input, and placing DataCard Height same as Label.

  14. Power Automate "Update Item" step for SharePoint should not automatically apply column default values to existing list items

    The "Update Item" step automatically retrieves the default value for SharePoint list columns that have default values specified and incorporates them into the step. This can corrupt a list by unintentionally overwriting values that already exist in those columns. It is a highly counter-intuitive behavior for two reasons: 1. it does not make sense to apply default values to existing list items, which may already have different values specified; and 2. the "Update Item" step does not otherwise automatically apply values to columns that do not have default values. In my opinion, "Update Item" should not make changes to fields/columns…

  16. split CC team into phone/sms-only and email/chat-only

    I think that the customer care team should be split into two - one team handling exclusively phone calls (and maybe text messages as well, since nothing can override an SMS), and the other exclusively handling emails and online chat.

    This could vastly increase the team productivity - I find it extremely difficult to answer up to 4 chats while also handling phone calls and emails and SMS, and I know I'm not the only one who finds it overwhelming.

    I also worry at the increased possibility that someone would either a) fail to document an account properly, or b)…
