  2. AutoHeight for Multiline Text in PowerApps

    Multiline Text in PowerApps should have the AutoHeight property enabled, so that the Multiline text field grows in height according the size of the text.

    Today this is possible by creating a labl with AutoHeight set as true, setting the width of the label to be the same as the text input, and placing DataCard Height same as Label.

  3. Restrict users and approvers from editing Workflow attachments

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ワークフローの添付ファイルについて

    Restrict users and approvers from editing Workflow attachments


    ■Description(内容):
    ワークフローにファイルを添付する場合、投稿者および承認者は添付されたファイルを編集することができてしまう。編集権限を外すと、ワークフロー自体を正常に動作させることができない。編集が行われた場合、その記録は残るが改ざんが疑われる場合もあるため、ワークフローに添付されたファイルの編集のみを禁じる機能を実装してほしい。

    When attaching files to a Workflow, both the user who started the workflow and the approver can edit the files, and it might be a risk for alternation of the documents. However, if the edit permission is removed, the workflow wound not work normally.

    Therefore, allow us to have an option that can restrict contributors and approvers from only editing attachments of workflows to prevent alternation of the files.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Workflows get suspended to fast because of throttling.

    Isn't it possible to load balance the workflow actions in SharePoint Online better so óur Nintex workflows don't get suspended. We have done a lot by scheduling and adding pauses between actions, but we have a lot of work to fix the suspended workflow actions. It would be better if SharePoint would pause these workflow action's instead of stopping them.

  5. Prohibit/Allow flows to connect to a list or library

    Any user with PowerApps or Flow can connect to a list/library and read/modify everything.
    There should be a possibility for Site Owners to prevent/grant users to connect a Flow or PowerApp to SharePoint (via group permission level or list settings).
    Any user with a bit knowledge can otherwise read any information.
    Same is for dataconnection with Excel to SharePoint...

    Everyone knows that Netflix will start falling stocks.

    This is due to the expected withdrawal of international production companies from them.

    The reason is that companies like Disney and others have decided to create their own broadcast channels to display their content for a monthly subscription as Netflix has done.

    Today, I think it is necessary to work with you to create an application idea like Netflix, but in a modern way you will go for the future and make Netflix and global production companies our customers.

    But how to do it? In short I have an idea of ​​an…

  7. Recently SP Designer Workflows in SharePoint Online have been suspended with error showing as Access denied

    Recently SP Designer Workflows in SharePoint Online have been suspended with error showing as Access denied. On Investigating it has been noticed that if a user is not present in a group , workflow is not sending mail to that group. Even Site collection Admin is unable to send mails through workflow if Admin is not a member of the group. This is a very major change but it has effected the users across the Globe. Even though we can use flows in which we send a http request to get group members this is not the same case for…

    "タスクごとの期間" で設定した場合の、承認依頼メールの期限記載について

    Add the task duration date in notification e-mails of approval workflow when “Duration Per Task” option is selected


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online の承認ワークフローの期限の設定方法として、"すべてのタスクの期限" と "タスクごとの期間" の 2種類があり、自社の運用上、 "タスクごとの期間" で設定しています。
    しかし、 "タスクごとの期間" で設定した場合、配信される承認依頼メールには "期限: 指定なし" と記載され、期間や日付は表示されません。
    ※ "すべてのタスクの期限" にて設定した場合は、承認依頼メールに "期限: YYYY/MM/DD" と期限が記載されます。

    承認ワークフローの期限を "タスクごとの期間" で設定した場合でも、承認依頼メールに設定した期限が記載されるよう、機能の改善を要望します。

    When setting a task duration in SharePoint Online Approval workflows, if you chose “Duration Per Task” option, the duration of the task won’t be displayed in the notification e-mail of the task assignment. If you chose “Due Date for All Tasks” option, the duration of the task will be shown in…

  10. Allow Microsoft Flow to be attached to content types

    Add the option in Microsoft Flow to be triggered when a new item of a certain content type is created or modified. This will allow the creation of 1 flow to run a multiple sites which contain a library/list on which the flow needs to run.

  11. 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.

  12. SharePoint 2019 : enable PowerApps and Flow features to Library and List

    In o365 we can directly customize forms and flow with buttons in the List Actions. It's not possible to do it in SharePoint 2019. This is what I expect to have from the Bill Baer annoucement https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Welcome-to-SharePoint-Server-2019-a-modern-platform-for-choice/ba-p/194162

    Alert users when a workflow is unlinked from a list


    ■Description(内容):
    ワークフローが意図せず紐づいたリストから外れるという動作があった。再度手動で紐づけてその後再発はしていないが、今後のためにもこのようなことが起きた場合にアラートを発する機能、また紐づきが外れた動作を記録として監査ログに残すなどの機能を実装してほしい。

    We have noticed that a workflow was removed unintendedly from a list. We linked the workflow again to the list manually and it has not been occurred since then.

    For smoother operation in the future, we hope you to implement the feature to alert users and log the record when the workflow was removed.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  14. Enable a list and alphabetic view/filter for Flows in your approval que

    Currently, you can only view flows within you approval ques as tiles. This makes it hard to sort and see everything that is on your plate. It would be really nice if I could alphabetize them so I could easily put my focus where it needs to be. Additionally, tiles can be hard to navigate if you have more than a couple of rows. If we could view as a list (that can then be filtered by name, person who created/submitted the flow, date, etc.), that would be SO helpful.

  15. Enable PowerApp creation from cog -> "add an app"

  16. See active or historical FLOWS and Approvals on List Item

    Unless i have missed this, I do not see a way to identify what flows have run, what flows are running, or what approvals were made, or what approvals are currently in process for a given item in a SharePoint list. This is a huge need for audit trails to have a direct connection with a list item and its history of approvals. There should be an easy way to select an item in SharePoint and go directly to related approvals & flows. previously we have been able to click on the Workflow option in the item menu, but it…

  19. Make it possible to disable PowerApps properly of the Custom List in SharePoint Online.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): SharePoint Online カスタム リスト上部に表示される Flow PowerApps の無効化について

    Make it possible to disable PowerApps properly of the Custom List in SharePoint Online.


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online カスタムリスト 上部に表示される Flow PowerApps について、各ライセンスを無効にしても使用ができてしまう為、ライセンスを無効にした場合使用できないように動作変更を希望します。
    Flow についてはコマンドを実施することで、サイト単位で無効にすることが可能であるが、PowerApps についてはコマンドを実行しても適用されず無効にすることもできない為、PowerAppsの無効化も行えるようにしてほしい。

    Even if we disable each license for Flow PowerApps displayed at the top of SharePoint Online Custom list for the user nevertheless its use is not restricted. For managing the site properly, we hope this behavior will be corrected to that the license will be appropriately invalidated.

    In addition, Flow function can be disabled on a site basis by executing specific commands by now.…

  20. 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).
