  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Drag & drop and enabling arrow in navigation bas suggestion

    I am not able to drag a file from one location to another location within sharepoint. I think if its updated, it will make the process fast.
    Also, in the navigation bar, if the arrows can be enabled to navigate directly from there rather than going back like we are able to do while navigating through the folder in the computer, it will further smoothen the process.

    Thanks

  7. Detecting Excel corrupt file

    Please give advice in a window if file is corrupt or no; for example today when I uploaded an Excel file all was ok; but when I downloaded the same, it couldnt opened. Its important considering office 365 and office excel is from same company.

  8. Integrate Office feel

    Make it more Office like. When a document is copied and pasted from one application like Excel Spreadsheets into Word, you'd expect it to retain some of the properties from Excel or just convert it into a table.

  9. Increase character limit (when paste email addresses or names) for out of the box workflows assigned to field.

    Increase character limit (when paste email addresses or names) for out of the box workflows assigned to field. Right now it is 256 character limit.

  13. eClaim

    Communication is the keyword here. As we are punching in all the numbers into a SLB system, why are we doing this over and over and over again???? This is totaly meaningless. We are living in 2018 we have used creditcards for more than 30 years!! Why not start to having these programs to communicate together? At least our own internal systems. I have to log into eClaim. Why do I have to copy reference numbers from eClaim and paste them into eClaim, just to generate a new form or file. For receipts you should be able to take a…

  14. Adjust User View HelpDesk Tickets

    As a User raising a Ticket I want to be able to edit enter data into fiels which are meant to be managed by the HelpDesk.
    E.g. "Response".
    As I User i shouldn´t be able to adjust data in these fields and when I raise a ticket those fields are not interesting for me. Additionally some of those are in Spanish Language which is confusing to me as well.
    "Persona o Grupo" "Texto" "Fecha y Hora". What am I suppose to do with this?! Please adjust the View for the Users accordingly.

  17. Coding alerts

    It would be helpful to have a "RUSH" flag for items where the truck is coming the same or next day. I would know to get on it immediately.

  19. Badge Scan to Clock In/Out

    Instead of waiting for a computer to take its time to boot up and wait for a few additional minutes for our time clock webpage to finish loading, we could possible have a system where we could use our employee badge or have a barcode implemented on our badge to scan onto a system where it would recognize what time an individual clocks in/out. Just a swipe or scan of the badge, and it'll record that minute of the day on our time card instead of the process of Kronos taking a while to pull up (and possibly clocking in/out…
