  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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)…

                          • Speed up the processing time of the approval of the workflow in SharePoint.

                            I am concerned about that the processing time to complete the approval of the workflow is taking a while. In our operation, when the user frequently requires executing about 10 items, s/he is in trouble because the processing is slow. (even if the function performs 30 seconds per case)

                            Therefore I hope the feature will be improved to speed up the processing of the approval of the workflow.

                                    When attaching files to a Workflow, both the user who started the workflow and the approver can edit the files, and it might be a risk for alternation of the documents. However, if the edit permission is removed, the workflow wound not work normally.

                                    Therefore, allow us to have an option that can restrict contributors and approvers from only editing attachments of workflows to prevent alternation of the files.

                                    • Alert users when a workflow is unlinked from a list

                                      ワークフローの意図しない動作について

                                      Alert users when a workflow is unlinked from a list

                                      ■Description(内容):
                                      ワークフローが意図せず紐づいたリストから外れるという動作があった。再度手動で紐づけてその後再発はしていないが、今後のためにもこのようなことが起きた場合にアラートを発する機能、また紐づきが外れた動作を記録として監査ログに残すなどの機能を実装してほしい。

                                      We have noticed that a workflow was removed unintendedly from a list. We linked the workflow again to the list manually and it has not been occurred since then.

                                      For smoother operation in the future, we hope you to implement the feature to alert users and log the record when the workflow was removed.

                                      Thank you for your consideration.

                                        • Combine SharePoint and One Drive

                                          Make sure sharepoint and one drive actually work before focusing on other products. Google had this figure out years ago.
