    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

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

    I wanted to add a PowerApp to a site, one that would connect multiple lists. It made intuitive sense to me that if I wanted to add an App, a PowerApp would be an option. It aint. Add please?

  12. 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...

  14. 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.

  15. Drag and drop documents in Sharepoint to other locations in Sharepoint

    Sharepoint should function like a folder on my desktop. I should be able to drag and drop items from one folder to another, or copy/cut and paste from one folder to another with EASE. Google Drive's flow and interface are impeccable in this regard.

    If I want to move one word doc from folder X to folder Y, I can't pick it up and drop it in or easily hit ctrl+x > ctrl+v to cut and paste it. No, I have to click on a menu bar, select to move or copy and move, then click through directories that always…

  16. Add banker id to application process

    I have downloaded and like the new android app. I found the link in the menu to search for card and found the link to apply for a new 0% 20month credit card. Would be amazing to be linked to the banker I work with at the branch. Is there anyway to add this feature?

  19. Pie chart like similar to WIT pie chart

    As it is a dashboard, I would have customized the view of the first page:
    - pie chart showing for each Primary CPS policies/invoices status (pending Host Office, pending Issuing Office, sent to WRP).
    By clicking on the chart we would access the list of policies concerned by the status, I guess this is very clear for Host and Issuing Office to self-determine priorities.

  20. Make approval status for a multi person approval visable

    Currently it is veri well possible to create a Multi person approval flow for documents or procedures, the problem is that you can not see who did respond and who is not taking any action.
    This can slow down the approval process as it is needed to check with each person in the list if they performed the needed action.
    Please add the status of each approval invitation on the flow overview. Currently we can only see the names of each person.
