  1. 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.

  2. Postpone Retirement of 2010 workflows

    Our organisation hasn't got the bandwidth to rebuild so many workflows in the time left.

    Is not just 2010 workflows that need replacing, but all 2013 workflows that call simple workflows that create docsets or copy data between lists - those can be very complex.

  3. Fix issue where workflow emails do not reach their destination, and add function to detect this issue

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ワークフローのメールが届かない事象の改善および事象を検知する機能の追加を希望します。
    Fix issue where workflow emails do not reach their destination, and add function to detect this issue


    ■Description(内容):
    たびたびワーク フローのメールが届かない事象が発生します。(エラー メッセージ : "電子メール メッセージを送信できません。サーバーの送信メール設定が正しく構成されていることを確認してください。")
    事象の原因は送信サーバーの IP が Exchange Online のブロッキング リストに一時的に載っているためですが、ユーザー側では本事象を回避することができないため、早急に本事象の根本対策を希望します。

    また、管理者側で事前に本事象を把握したいと考えていますが、メール処理におけるエラーを検知することが現状できない状況です。
    そのため、以下のような対策または管理者にて事前に本事象を検知できる機能の追加を希望します。


    1. 本事象のエラーを検知し、ワークフローのメール処理のみ再実行する。

    2. 本事象のエラーを検知し、管理者や担当者へメールにて通知する。

    3. "ワークフローの履歴" のログを "期間" と "イベント種別" を指定してダウンロードし、エラーがないか確認する。

    Occasionally, workflow emails are not correctly sent. (Error message: “The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the outgoing e-mail settings for the server are configured correctly.”)
    This issue is caused when the outgoing server’s IP is temporarily listed in Exchange Online’s blocking list, but there is no workaround on the user side, so…

  4. Please provide Flow connection for creating/copying list to new list in sharepoint,and provide "Save list as a template" Flow connection.

    Now we can't create/copy sharepoint list in MS Flow, because there is no this connection. So if we can't create list according to year number in Flow. And because there isn't "Save list as a template" function in sharepoint online, so we can't do this work manually.

  5. 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.

  6. Prevent other users from approve/reject task not assigned to them

    On-prem SharePoint only allowed the user assigned a task to respond to that task, and restricted anyone else not assigned from approving or rejecting. SharePoint Online allows anyone to approve or reject the task regardless if they are assigned to that task or not. Please prevent users not assigned to a task from approving or rejecting them.

  7. Timeline Chart for Tasks

    Sharepoints built in Task charts are limited to Just Pie, and Bar. Is it possible to get a timeline of when a group or the entire tasks start and finish? I'd like to see how each task timeline overlaps eachother.

    Thank you.

  8. Make Forms Function as Forms

    Make your "Forms" to actually function as forms. The current application named "Forms" is mislabeled and is really a survey. Forms need to allow for people to skip branched items that are not applicable to the request and to attach supporting documentation.

  9. MS Flow - Smart Send an Email Action that codes HTML for you

    MS Flow - Send an email function: Enhance the Body section to be a Rich Text Editor which creates a nice looking HTML email that include the dynamic content as well as expressions. It would also be nice to have a preview pane to see how it looks.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. All functionalities of old versions of SHP Designer should work in the new ones. This is not the case. Why?

    In SHP online, a workflow made with SHP Designer 2013 starting a functionality on an item created by a workflow SHP Designer 2010 is not detected to start automatically. The problem is that a lot of functionalities of SHP Designer 2010 don't work with SHP Designer 2013 anymore. So, you can't do anything else than using a mix of both versions.

  17. Workflows SHP 2010 should work in following versions

    Automatic creation of items in a library and use the columns of these items in Word documents are perfectly working with SHP Designer 2010. Why does this functionality don't work in the following versions of SHP Designer?

  18. Flow/SharePoint Get Item each versioned field

    The "Get Item" SharePoint action in Flow should allow getting each version of a field in a list item. Currently, only the latest version is returned and there is no way to get previous versions of a list item, or the previous versions of a single field.

    This could work like the following: Trigger -> Get Item -> Apply To Each (versioned_field).
