  2. Language change in SharePoint profile

    Provide a more straightforward way to change user language in SharePoint. Right now the user has to go to the Office profile > Update profile > find the “How can I change language and regional settings?“, etc... and then wait until the language change takes effect. As end user I would like to have a more handy and instant way to achieve this.

  3. Published date and Page details should be visible to readers

    On SharePoint modern pages, Published date and Page details option are not visible to users with read access.
    These fields can be shown to readers so that they can see this information easily.

  4. Additional Title region options to support bilingual page headings

    To support the language of our indigenous Māori people we need bilingual page headings.

    We currently put English and Te Reo Māori side by side:

    Te arohanga Māori / Māori outcomes

    A more readable alternative would be to have them one above the other:

    Te arohanga Māori
    Māori outcomes

    It’s important that both headings have equal visual emphasis.

  5. Prevent users from creating communication sites thru UI and scripts

    The current settings that exist to prevent creation of sites do not apply to communication sites. While its possible to hide the "create site" option from the menu if users access directly to the creation URL they will be able to create these thru the UI and also thru powershell or scripts.

    This is a governance issue that should be resolved.

  6. SharePoint Treeview filter of a Term Set

    It should be possible to set for each list or document library a default view (list view or tree view) for the filter pane.
    If there are to less items, it's not possible to switch between list view and tree view. Please keep in mind, that this not a porblem for the default view setting.

    If in the tree view a parent node is selected, child nodes should be automatically selected.

    After reopening the filter pane with the tree view, the selected items should be shown.

  7. Password Encrypted SharePoint Files

    When opening password encrypted files in SharePoint and making changes, once you click save in Word or Excel SharePoint then strips away the metadata and changes the location where the file was when you opened it.

    This then give you and error in Excel that the document no longer exist.

    Can this be fixed in SharePoint that it does not strip away metadata once you click save.

    Create a manual detailing how to migrate a document library from the classic to the modern UI


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにおけるクラシック UI から モダン UI への移行を検討しているが、機能更新を理由に利用方法のマニュアルが用意されていない。
    モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリは クラシック UI のドキュメント ライブラリと比較し、表示が使い勝手が大きく異なるため、利用ユーザーにとって負担が非常に大きい。
    利用ユーザーの負担を軽減させる観点から、機能の対照表やマニュアルに準ずる資料を用意してほしい。

    We are considering migrating a document library from the classic to the modern UI but there is no manual detailing how to for update reasons.
    Compared to classic UI document libraries, modern UI document libraries have a lot of differences, so there is a large demand placed on the user.
    In order to reduce this…

  9. Enable @mention of an O365 group from News Post/Sharepoint page

    Please enable the ability to @mention an O365 group from a Sharepoint page. This will allow the power of push notifications, on mobile devices, to reach an intended audience. It works great for individuals but cannot do it for groups. It will allow a News post to be directed to a target group, then with one click on the received notification, the News post will open in the mobile Sharepoint app.

  10. News post notifications to author, not creator

    In our organisation, we often create news posts for others that do not have the rights to do so. We then set them as the Author of the news post.

    However, when others subsequently comment or "like" the news post, the email notification is sent to the creator and not the author.

    We would like to ability to change the notification behavior such that authors can be set up to receive the comment notifications.

  11. Get a list of all users who liked a posted page on SharePoint Online

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online の投稿したページの "いいね" を押した全ユーザーを集計し一覧で確認できる機能拡充
    Get a list of all users who liked a posted page on SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では、"いいね" を押したユーザーが、一定数を超えると「その他○○人」と表示されて、省略されてしまう。
    そのため、ページに対する明確な評価となる "いいね" の数及びユーザーの確認ができない。
    投稿内容の評価をするために "いいね" を押した全ユーザーを集計し一覧で確認できる機能拡充を希望します。

    At present, if the number of users who pressed “Like” goes over a certain value, “and x other users” is shown instead of a list.
    Therefore, you cannot check both the names and number of users who liked a page.
    In order to rate content of posts, please add a list of all users who liked a page.

  12. Change SharePoint Site Sub Domain

    requesting the ability to change
    https://domain1.sharepoint.com to
    https://domain2.sharepoint.com

    business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, re branding etc)

    Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, SharePoint and OneDrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.

  13. Color coding for modern list Calendar views

    Right now, it is not possible to color code the calendar view for modern lists based on choice fields or using JSON formatting. This would be a useful feature for calendars with many items. This would be something that would bring back functionality that classic Calendars were able to do.

  14. Retain existing readonly field values in SharePoint on a listitem during the copy process

    Currently SharePoint does not retain existing read-only field values on a document list item when it is replaced during the copy process (through standard context menu copy or download/upload scenario) by a document with a similar name.
    Please fix this, so read-only values are preserved and not overwritten.
    And also please preserve the internal version history of a list item during the copy process (through standard context menu copy), since currently a replace copy action effectively means that the target list item is deleted and then a new item add occurs so all the internal version history is deleted in…

  15. Put field choices in alphabetical order

    The latest update to Sharepoint took away the ability to manually alphabetize the menu options in a "choice" field list. Now the new choices just get added to the bottom, which will make it much harder to search for the appropriate choice.

  16. Overview of all SharePoint pages I have access to

    I would like to see which SharePoint Online pages I have access to. If I don't remember the name of a SharePoint Online communication page and don't follow the page, it is very difficult to find the page.
    Here an overview would be very helpful, where I can see which pages I have access to.

  17. Allow running Power Automate Flow while searching in list/library

    We can run a Power Automate Flow by selecting item in list/library. This functionality works well while filtering or sorting the list.

    But when I am searching within a list and selecting the list item from search results, all the "Automate" options are missing (both from command bar and item edit menu - ellipses).

    Please allow running Power Automate Flow while searching in list/library

  18. Embed fillable Adobe pdf forms within SharePoint and integrate data

    We need to be able to embed fillable Adobe Pdf Forms on SharePoint sites.
    The forms need to be fillable directly from the browser (with JavaScript functionality).
    Save the files to document libraries on the SharePoint site - the files should remain as form files.
    Activate Flows to the files, to distribute them and to distribute any form data to whatever instance necessary (mail, Teams, ecc.)
    It should be possible to populate the "SharePoint document library columns" with the filled PDF form fields data and choose which fields to auto-populate.
    The forms shouldn't be possible to save on the computer.

  19. Spanish Language variant for Mexico, Argentina, Colombia etc.

    Currently SharePoint site language feature support only single Spanish language.
    As there is grammar and spelling difference that vary from place to place where Spanish is spoken it would be nice to have multiple Spanish variants for Mexico, Argentina, Colombia etc.

  20. Disable editing multiple items on a SharePoint List customized with PowerApps

    End users are able to edit and save multiple items in bulk, using the default form on the side pane, bypassing the business logic that is built within PowerApps.
    The request is to disable the Edit functionality or hide the Edit link when multiple items are selected in a SharePoint List customized with PowerApps.
