  1. Sharepoint\Teams Flow

    I've added a sharepoint list to a teams tab. We would like to utilize the request sign off flow that's integrated into sharepoint however the control only becomes visable if you open the website (not from within teams). If the request sign off control could be visable from within teams, that would be awesome.

  3. Flow to have SPD 2013 and 2010 workflow actions and triggers

    Microsoft flow should incorporate the same actions and triggers as Sharepoint Designer 2010 and 2013 Workflows all combined. This way, the creation of custom workflows in SPD2013 would be avoided, and the experience both for the user and the developer would be greatly improved.

  4. Grant/revoke permissions to an Item through Flow Action

    In many cases logic of workflow requires to assing "case", "document", or any other list/library item to specific user. For time when it's assigned, it shouldn't be available to other users, excluding this specific one.

    Such functionality is available in SharePoint Designer and it's very usefull. It's can be used in many business cases. It's also much better option, then allowing users to manage with per item permissions.

    Flow Action for SharePoint should allow to:
    - grant permissions to current item to specific user or group
    - revoke permissions to current item from specific users or group
    - remove unique…

  5. Document change alerts: every N minutes

    For the document alert please make an option to give updates every N minutes. Because you have updates immediately on all changes which generates too many emails, and then once a day, which is not enough when there is active work on the document. I'd like to set an alert for every 30 min, or every 60 min. That way I don't have a flood in my inbox and at the same time I am frequently updated on the progress. Thank you.

  6. Intercompany invoice verification

    Verification of Invoices from Subsidiaries:

    At present, Tradewinds verifies invoices from third parties, which are then re-charged to SIA.

    Since Tradwewinds is a wholly-owned subsidiary, and has to perform all verification in line with Group policy, there should not be any further requirement to re-verify Tradewinds' invoices to SIA.

    Tradewinds is also subject to Internal Audit review based on the same standards as SIA. As such, it is duplicate effort for SIA to re-verify invoices from subsidiaires.

    We should change group policy to reflect this, in order to optimize our invoice verification processes.

  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. Please add a link to access the approval and rejection page directly in the approval email.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):ワークフロー実行時に送付されるメールの内容に 承認と却下のページへアクセスできるリンクを追加してほしい。

    Please add a link to access the approval and rejection page directly in the approval email.


    ■Description(内容):
    ワークフロー実行時に承認者に送付されるメールの内容にワークフローが実行されたアイテムへアクセスするためのリンクはございますが、 承認と却下のページへアクセスするまでの手順を踏む必要があるため、承認者に送付されるメールの内容に承認と却下のページへアクセスが可能なリンクを追加してほしい。​​

    At present, I recognize that the link for accessing the item is described in the contents of the mail which sent to the Approver at the time of execution of the Workflow. However, there are multiple steps before accessing the approval and rejection page so that please add a link to access the approval and rejection page directly in the email in which sent to the approver to make it easier.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  12. 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.

  13. Flow template for an uploaded document not just a created document

    Create a flow template which sends an email to a user or users when a file is uploaded into a document library.

    At the moment, I only seem to be able to create a flow that sends an email when a file is created in a folder?

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
