  1. Microsoft Flow: Enable to edit "Alternative text" for Hyperlink on Sharepoint list corum

    *Japanese follows English

    ■Title(件名): Microsoft Flow: Enable to edit "Alternative text" for Hyperlink on Sharepoint list corum

    ■Description(内容):
    Dear sirs,
    I have an idea for Microsoft Flow.

    In case we create or edit an item with Hyperlink row on Sharepoint List, we can add URL(web address) only.
    On sharepoint List, Hyperlink row have URL and alternative text. Without alternative text, list shows very long URL and it is not convenient that we cannot find where URL leads us.

    So, please enable to edit not only URL, but also Alternative text.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    こんにちは。
    Flowに関して提案させてください。

    Hyperlinkの列を持つSharepoint上のListを作成や編集する際、URLを追加することは可能ですが、代替テキストについてはできません。
    Sharepoint List上ではURLと代替テキストの両方の機能があり、代替テキスト欄を操作できないと、長いURLが直接入ることになり、毎回見づらいしどこへリンクされているのかわからなくなってしまいます。

  3. Enable SharePoint Buttons and Quick Links to initiate a PowerAutomate Flow

    Please enable the SharePoint Button and QuickLinks web parts to act as "on Click" button triggers for PowerAutomate Flows.

    E.g. clicking a button or a Quick Link on a SharePoint Site page will start a PowerAutomate Flow to execute the desired action. "Subscribe Here" is an example of such a flow.

  4. 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.

  5. Ability to run Flow from library/list webpart

    It is possible to add custom buttons to run flows against documents and list items - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/column-formatting#create-a-button-to-launch-a-flow

    However this only works when the user is in the library or list. If you're on a page and have a library/list web part the flow button is visible but does nothing when clicked. There's also none of the OOB options to run flows associated with the library/list when viewing them via the web part.

    It would be really useful if this functionality was added as most of our libraries and lists are presented via pages on our SharePoint environment.

  6. Provide a document how to migrate Add-ins workflows

    Microsoft announced that SharePoint workflows 2010 will be retired soon and SharePoint workflows will follow a similar retirement process in the near future.
    my concern is how we are going to migrate SharePoint Add-ins workflows and these workflows are considered as SharePoint 2010 workflows or 2013 ?????

  7. Microsoft Flow: Activate Flow via individual item page.

    ■Title(件名): Microsoft Flow: Activate Flow via individual item page.

    ■Description(内容):
    Dear sirs,
    I have an idea for List & Flow.

    Now we can use Microsoft Flow on Sharepoint List using "Automation" buttom(Ex. Flow Buttom).
    It is very good and useful, but available if you see the top page of List.

    Sharepoint list have a feature that show one item only page(An individual item page).
    You can use "copy a link" and pase address bar, you can see this item only page(An individual item page).
    But in this case, we cannot activate Flow via an item only page(An…

  8. "Assigned to" e-mail generation on a list item

    On previous SharePoint the Advanced Setting to send an automatically generated e-mail was available when a person was added to the "assigned to" column.. Now that is only available when the list is a TASK list.

  9. 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.

  10. Adding a Column for attachments in the Conversation Application of SharePoint

    Good morning Microsoft SharePoint teams,
    I love your products, especially SharePoint.
    SharePoint is a fantastic tool. We have SharePoint 2013, and it would be fantastic if the "Conversation Application" would feature a document attachment capability in one of the columns. Our teams would be able to upload a word document or a PowerPoint presentation to the Conversation App, and then the teams could discuss the material by clicking on "reply." Adding this feature would save thousands of hours in the emailing of the document or PowerPoint presentation. Additionally, teams would be able to work from one report instead of numerous…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. We want to be able to use different PowerApps custom forms for editing and viewing of custom lists

    Currently if a PowerApps custom form is applied to custom lists, the same custom form will be applied when creating, editing and viewing an item.
    To enhance the convenience for each operation, we would like to select a different custom form when creating/editing and viewing items, or have an option added to select a default form.

  14. About SendError for workflows

    *English follows Japanese

    ワークフローの送信エラーについて
    About SendError for workflows


    ■Description(内容):
    2月ごろから、ワークフローの送信サーバーがブロックされてメールが送信エラーになる。
    サーバー側で 該当 IP アドレスのブロックを解除することで改善するが、IP アドレスのブロックを事前に回避する方法、もしくはユーザー側で IP アドレスを確認してブロックを解除する方法を実装してほしい
    Since February, it has shown SendError in sending e-mails because the outgoing server for workflows is blocked.
    We can fix this SendError by unblocking a specific IP address on the server side, but in the future, I hope you to implement either way, that is, to avoid blocking the IP address beforehand or to check and unblock the IP address on the user side.

  15. 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.

  18. 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…
