  3. 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.

    When you right click on items in a document library with a PowerAutomate approval flow set, the menu shown under the “Automate” menu (Convert to PDF, Prepare training, Draft workflow, Review, Document approval, PowerAutomate>) contains unnecessary items when the item state is “Not approved”.

  6. Allow .msg files / emails to be attached in MS Forms

    As a company we attach emails as a form of 'back-up' to requests we receive.
    For instance, someone will raise a form to get a new drawing created, they will attach an email which contains data from our Customer, telling us what they want.
    This is currently done via email because of the limitations in MS Forms.

  8. SharePoint 2013 Workflows disappeared from SP Designer and Multiple Site Collections

    Workflows were gone from SP Designer and all sites. 2010 workflows were still present but deprecated as expected. Issue appeared to have started around 11/15 but was not discovered until 12/2, all workflows had not been running during that time and appeared to be deleted off of all sites. Workflows were not in recycle bin. Workflows suddenly reappeared in Designer and sites 12/3 after issue was reported to Microsoft Support.

  9. SharePoint Online - Remember other people's calendars

    In SPO, allow for viewing and saving a members calendar in the group calendar function. No option to add person(s) permanently to a calendar view/scope. Defeats the purpose of group calendars on a collaboration website

  10. Include all text HTML formatting and screenshots when creating list items (on-premises SP did/does this using announcement app)

    I have used SharePoint on premises for more than 10 year (2010, 2013 and 2016). In all cases, I could use the Announcement app (email enabled) to FWD emails in with Screenshots and all the text , pics and formatting was there in the item. This was a quick way to create tickets, create newsletters and add Knowledge base items. Handy and valuable. In SP online, this functionality is gone. I can create list items from email but when you view the item, all the screenshots are gone. If we want to create a knowledgebase, we have to create the…

  11. Access to Check In/Out from OneDrive Sharepoint Shortcut on Desktop

    When working from a desktop OneDrive folder coming from a Sharepoint shortcut on OnDrive, it will be really useful to be able to Check In and Check Out directly from the Desktop via a simple OS Right Click (like for Free space…).
    With a Check Out option and perhaps a Preference on OnDrive to auto Check Out any file opened from a Sharepoint shortcut folder and auto Check In when closing it.

  12. Pull attachments from Form submission

    I would like the idea to pull the attachments submitted via forms, so that I can direct them to specific folders in a document library. The form answers would also allow for column data to be filled.

  14. I want to share a DRAFT of my text with the 'owner' of the text in the editorial process of editing it - i.e. before approval & publication

    In the editorial process of developing and writing a news article or a page text on VELUX One, it would be more effective if I could share the text (ping-pong) with the 'owner' of the text directly in the VELUX One modern SharePoint template (possibly even with track changes) -
    instead of first creating it in a word document, trying to copy the template into the word document so that the 'owner' can see how the text is going to be displayed and send it by mail to the owner for comments.
    Usually, that process takes some editions to/from each…

  16. Power Automate Ability to Disable Actions

    I would like to see an option to disable actions within a workflow. Currently in Power Automate the only option to stop an action from triggering is to delete it. When testing workflows in previous tools I found it very helpful to be able to disable actions as I am building/testing. This allowed me to turn off parts of the workflow without having to delete and rebuild them when they are needed again. It is very helpful for troubleshooting issues.

  17. Sort Power Automate Flow Alphabetically

    Change the way Power Automate sorts your flows to be alphabetically instead of by most recently updated. Or give users to option to choose how to sort. I have a lot of flows created and it is difficult to locate a flow when updates are needed because it is not located in the same place in the list every time.

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

    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…
