  1. Unable to check who is added to CC field in approval workflow email

    ■Title(件名):
    承認ワークフローの CC 設定について

    Unable to check who is added to CC field in approval workflow email


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online にて、承認ワークフローを手動で開始する際、CC 欄にユーザー名を入れることで承認者以外にもワークフローの開始と完了を通知することができる。しかし、開始後に CC 欄に誰が設定されているか、サイトの所有者もワークフローを開始したユーザーでも確認することができないので、確認する方法を用意してほしい。

    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.
    For improvement of usability in…

  2. Built-in responsive design for PowerApps applications

    It would be nice if we didn't have to create two versions of a PowerApps form for a SharePoint list in order to have a design that works well both on phones and, for example, on a tab in the Teams desktop app.

  3. 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…

  4. PowersApps Webpart recognizing Target Audiences

    The PowerApps Webpart should recognize Target Audience and only renders if applicable.

  5. 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.

  6. Calendar Recurring Events and Flow

    Please find a way to support recurring events in a SharePoint Calendar for Flow. The event web part is not a feasible replacement for the traditional calendar, and the most basic workflow I can imagine is a "notify participants of event". This functionality is pretty universal for calendars.

  8. 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.

  10. Lookup Limit 12 !!! Is this a joke? (Sharepoint Online + Power Automate)

    I can't understand there is a lookup amount threshold of 12 columns/fields per list. Also, on-site SharePoint (server) allows you to change this limit to the content of your heart. We can't touch this setting on the Sharepoint Online site.

    THIS IS A VERY LITTLE AMOUNT OF LOOKUPS !!

    I think this threshold should be lifted to minumum 30 columns. Please, you need to take action until 1 November 2020.

  11. Simpler Flow for SharePoint Calendar

    Please make the out of the box SharePoint Calendar a recognized list in Flow and make it simpler to set up an Approval Flow on a calendar.

    As it stands now, you have to create a request list or MS Form to route to an approver and then when the item is approved, update the Calendar list. You should be able to do this in one step by setting up a flow on the Calendar list itself.

  12. 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…

  13. Re-link a disconnected PowerApps App or form to the parent list

    PowerApps Integration - as well as Create an App and Customize Form, add an option to the List View PowerApps control to re-connect an existing PowerApps app or form that has been inadvertently disconnected - find related PowerApps in the tenant that are using the specific list as a primary data source and offer them as options.

  15. Create an Option Under "Integrate" on Microsoft Lists to Create a Microsoft Form directly connected to it.

    Google Sheets has a feature to create a simple form based on the sheet, Smartsheet has the same. Right now, Microsoft Forms automatically creates an excel document, but it doesn't have a feature to directly connect to a Microsoft List without the use of PowerAutomate. If we could have a direct connection, we could have more citizen developers that aren't technical enough to use Power Apps create their own lists and forms and keep them updated.

  16. Notification message to members of approval group is creating confusion when one of the members complete the common assigned task.

    <One of your tasks was canceled and deleted. You do not need to take any further action on that task.>This notification message to a group of approvers of the workflow is confusing, causing anxiety to the requester and approvers in the work group when one of the approvers complete the approval task. An update is urgently needed to reduce confusion and discomfort. Please update the notification message to <The task has been completed. You do not need to take further action on the task.>

    サイトに対して[閲覧] 権限を付与されたユーザーに、特定のリストに対してのみ投稿権限を与えて、Share Point のワークフローを実行しようとすると、「新しいワークフローの開始」画面に Sharepoint 2010 ワークフローは表示されるが、 Sharepoint 2013 ワークフローが表示されない。サイトに対する "アイテムの承認" の権限」を付与することで、2013 ワークフローが表示されるようになることを確認しているが、その他のリストやアイテムを更新させたくない場合には使用できない。

  18. Restrict access to powerapps

    Powerapps is positioned as a frontend for sharepoint. A major feature of frontends is providing data validation and security. Sharepoint cannot be configured to only allow access via a powerapp. This makes powerapps effectively useless for a lot of workflows because sharepoint advertises direct data access to each person with access to the powerapp, and thus a simple bypass to the power app.

  19. Create folders for Flows

    Create folders for Flows in the 'My Flows' page, or other way to group them by Sharepoint site, by PowerApps application, etc..

    This would allow to quickly see only the Flows that run on a specific Sharepoint site, list or library, or that run from specific PowerApps applications.
