  1. About SendError for workflows

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ワークフローの送信エラーについて
    About SendError for workflows


    ■Description(内容):
    2月ごろから、ワークフローの送信サーバーがブロックされてメールが送信エラーになる。
    サーバー側で 該当 IP アドレスのブロックを解除することで改善するが、IP アドレスのブロックを事前に回避する方法、もしくはユーザー側で IP アドレスを確認してブロックを解除する方法を実装してほしい
    Since February, it has shown SendError in sending e-mails because the outgoing server for workflows is blocked.
    We can fix this SendError by unblocking a specific IP address on the server side, but in the future, I hope you to implement either way, that is, to avoid blocking the IP address beforehand or to check and unblock the IP address on the user side.

  2. Notification feature when workflow related problems happen

    Currently SharePoint Online workflow does not give an alert or notification to administrators in case of abnormal failure or process delay etc. We find these problems later and this would give us negative impact on our business.
    It would be great you could implement a notification feature for administrators if workflow related problems would happen. This feature could help us to reduce our business loss and improve SPO efficiency.

  3. Ability to Print a Flow

    Please can you give us the ability to be able to print a MS Flow. When you have a complex flow trying to follow it through when trouble shooting is very difficult on the screen. Printing would make this much better

  5. An option to disable syncing of filters and sorting

    When working on a shared spreadsheet document in Teams we need to use different sets of sorting and filters to be applied at the same time.

    Currently filters and sorting applied by one persons prevents other to do his/her job and vice versa.

    We are working on different parts of the document and each of us needs to see something different at a given time.

    Filters and sorting are modifying the access to the data but not change it and there should be a way to disable the sync for it if needed.

    Working on off-line copies is not an…

    When custom lists used for customizing forms in Power Apps are accessed using a PC or smartphone, the same form will be used for accessing.

  9. Default code on Update event of DataCard can be improved

    The following operation differences occur when customizing with the PowerApps Integration, which is troublesome.

    1. Fill in the choices, dates, lookup columns, user and group columns and save them in a custom list.
    2. Recall the saved data, clear the input contents and save again.
    3. When the saved data is called again, it does not disappear and the previous value remains.Actually data remains in the custom list.

    Based on the information on the following site,

  10. Global data value replacements during save as function

    As we start to developing power Automate flows it is immediately evident that the process is cumbersome & ripe for errors. This is because the templating workflow process currently copies 100% of the workflow. Then you have to find and manually update every occurrence in each step for site address and library name. Generating templates would be so much quicker and safer if we could globally replace site address, library name, and even notification recipients, etc.

  11. automation around "send to"

    It would be great if we could programmatically work with the "Send To" function that is available in Classic document libraries.

    I'd like to be able to add a Power Automate Flow, that provides "Send To" like functionality, to Modern document libraries.
    Potentially with a Power App initiator, to gather additional metadata at the start, rather than waiting for someone to pick it up from the Drop Off document library.

  12. "lookup threshold"

    I understand there is a lookup amount threshold of 12 columns/fields per list.
    Since these 12 include the CreatedBy, ModifideBy etc. (see https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/spses/2013/12/02/sharepoint-20102013-list-view-lookup-threshold-uncovered/).
    This leaves about 6-8 lookup/options for customization (especially if you have some flows running there).

    THIS IS A VERY LITTLE AMOUNT OF LOOKUPS !!

    I do uderstand this is to avoid heavey quering.
    I still hope this threshold will be lifted to at least double!

  13. 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)…

  14. 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.

  15. Prevent flows to be triggered by the document set timer job

    Workflows (Flow) that should normally be triggered by document creation or modification are starting every 5 minutes when the document set shared columns timer job runs. No real modification happens on the documents. These flows should not run so often. Could you have a look at this issue? Thank you.

  16. Trigger a Flow When a Comment is Added to a News Post

    We'd like to create some Flows for comment moderation. The most basic functionality requires at a minimum the ability to trigger a flow when a comment is added to a news post on a site. Alternatively, the ability to see comments in a list would be great!

    When starting an approval workflow by manual, we will be able to notify the start and completion of the workflow to a user other than approver by adding the user’s name in CC of email. However, no one including the site owner or the user who started the workflow have the way to check who is added in the CC field in the email, after the workflow started.

  18. Need forms and flow to be more like SP designer and Infopath

    Currently Flow fails ALOT for no reason at all and at random times, its not reliable. Forms is more for Surveys and is definitely now how most business use forms. We use it for anything from new employee onboarding, IT equipment requests, business card requests and all that kicks off a workflow to get the info and approval things to the right people. I'm doing my best to convince the company to stick with SharePoint but with things going away and the new items not working well, alot of the departments want a different product.
