  2. 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)…

  3. See active or historical FLOWS and Approvals on List Item

    Unless i have missed this, I do not see a way to identify what flows have run, what flows are running, or what approvals were made, or what approvals are currently in process for a given item in a SharePoint list. This is a huge need for audit trails to have a direct connection with a list item and its history of approvals. There should be an easy way to select an item in SharePoint and go directly to related approvals & flows. previously we have been able to click on the Workflow option in the item menu, but it…

  4. Allow users to start a Flow when they have read-only access to a list

    Users need a minimum of Contributor access to a list to trigger a Flow. Flow has its own run-only users list, so why do SP permissions have anything to do with it? It seems they only need this access to be able to trigger Flow, not because they actually need to edit the list.

    The work around - give users contribute but remove it using item-level permissions, is horrible and gives the users a quick edit button that won't work.

  5. "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!

  6. Sending Meeting Request on SharePoint Online

    On Calendar of current SharePoint Online version, users are not able to send out meeting request and receive replies from participants.

    As SharePoint Online supports Calendar project, please add the meeting request feature as same as Microsoft Outlook.

  7. SharePoint integration with Zapier

    Could you create a Zapier integration for SharePoint? There is already a OneDrive integration, but the SharePoint integration is missing. If you could add this, that would be great. Thanks already!

  8. 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.

  9. Add the task duration date in notification e-mails of approval workflow when “Duration Per Task” option is selected

    Add the task duration date in notification e-mails of approval workflow when “Duration Per Task” option is selected


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online の承認ワークフローの期限の設定方法として、"すべてのタスクの期限" と "タスクごとの期間" の 2種類があり、自社の運用上、 "タスクごとの期間" で設定しています。
    しかし、 "タスクごとの期間" で設定した場合、配信される承認依頼メールには "期限: 指定なし" と記載され、期間や日付は表示されません。
    ※ "すべてのタスクの期限" にて設定した場合は、承認依頼メールに "期限: YYYY/MM/DD" と期限が記載されます。

    承認ワークフローの期限を "タスクごとの期間" で設定した場合でも、承認依頼メールに設定した期限が記載されるよう、機能の改善を要望します。

    When setting a task duration in SharePoint Online Approval workflows, if you chose “Duration Per Task” option, the duration of the task won’t be displayed in the notification e-mail of the task assignment. If you chose “Due Date for All Tasks” option, the duration of the task will be shown in…

  10. Automatic refresh to new list items in Sharepoint

    I am using sharepoint as a visitor management system. An appointment is filled out in forms pushed with flow to create a sharepoint list item with an email to security desk and main office. The sharepoint list is left up on the securitys desk to see appointments for the day with visitors names and time of appointment. The issue is they have to continually manually refresh the page to see the new appointments that come in the list does not automatically update.

  12. Restrict users and approvers from editing Workflow attachments

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ワークフローの添付ファイルについて

    Restrict users and approvers from editing Workflow attachments


    ■Description(内容):
    ワークフローにファイルを添付する場合、投稿者および承認者は添付されたファイルを編集することができてしまう。編集権限を外すと、ワークフロー自体を正常に動作させることができない。編集が行われた場合、その記録は残るが改ざんが疑われる場合もあるため、ワークフローに添付されたファイルの編集のみを禁じる機能を実装してほしい。

    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.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  13. Tool for migrating 2010 Workflow to PowerAutomate

    As MS has declared 2010 Workflow will retire soon - Its a huge impact I guess. Unfortunately, we got hit with almost 600 2010WF from which 50 to 60 deals huge logic. Numerous WF has been written for impersonation permission. I am requesting - if it is possible if we can have a tool that helps to leverage migrating WF - 2010 and 2013 (because 25013 will also retire in 2026) to PowerAuotmate.

    I understand its critical to have the same logic to move to PowerAutomate - but at least if we can move generic custom logic and give reports…

    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.

    I am using the 'Track Microsoft Forms responses in an Excel Online (Business) spreadsheet' template to keep a spreadsheet in SharePoint up-to-date for a student test however Forms Points for for the correct answer to a question are not available as dynamic content in Power Automate.
