    • Add documentlibrary setting for opening in view or edit mode

      Previously the default behavour was to open in Read mode, and then actively change to Edit mode - with the latest updates the default is to open in Edit-mode.
      This causes Word Online to save the second the user opens the document, and thereby rendering the "Edited by" and "Last edited"-fields completly useless, as it in effect just shows who opened the document last.

      It also causes users to make a lot of accidental changes to documents as well.

      Since users are complaning about both the default behaviours, why not add a setting that let's the admins control how files…

      • Bring back SharePoint Online Image Metadata Extraction

        Back in September, we have used below columns to extract picture/image metadata w.r.t location in SharePoint Online:

        wic_System_GPS_Latitude
        wic_System_GPS_Longitude

        It worked brilliantly. But unfortunately the functionality doesn't seem to work anymore.

        Other metadata such as date taken has also been removed. This is causing extreme headache for customers who relied on this data.

        PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!!

        • Two-Way-Sync between SharePoint and Excel

          It should be feasible to sync updates from Excel to SharePoint Online list. We can import the Excel sheet to a SharePoint Online list or export a SharePoint list to Excel file. However, the sync between them is one-way.

          Changes made in the SharePoint list can be written to Excel, but any changes that we make in Excel won't written to SharePoint list automatically.

          • Requests for correction on behavior to open in edit mode of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business due to specification changes on MC 1

            When opening Word, Excel, PowerShell files of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business in Office Online with MC 131670 published in Message Center, it opened directly in edit mode.
            As usual, please restore it so that it can be opened in viewing mode by default.
            Or, add setting items so that you can select edit mode or viewing mode as the default value.

            • (Bug reporting) Allow order in documents with grouped views in the library webparts

              When you add a library webpart to a modern page, you can not use sort filters by date (created, modified, custom date filter). The filter appears but does not behave as expected

              This is a bug of the webpart that was reported

              • Documentset doesn't inherit the Library/Site settings to open documents in the client application.

                Documentset doesn't inherit the Library/Site settings to open documents in the client application. When I change the setting to open files in client application and create a new document in a document set it keeps using Office Online. When I create a new document directly from the library it does open the client Office application.

                Probably this is by design. But it shouldn't. Please let us know if this is fixed in the modern UI of document sets.

                • Make rename in Teams reflect name changes in Sharepoint?

                  When I rename a folder in the Teams app, the underlying folder is not renamed in sharepoint. This is most confusing.

                  • list web part

                    Please allow toolbar on List web part to he hidden as a web part property. This would make it a lot more friendly for some scenarios using row formatting, like a tiles view.

                    • split CC team into phone/sms-only and email/chat-only

                      I think that the customer care team should be split into two - one team handling exclusively phone calls (and maybe text messages as well, since nothing can override an SMS), and the other exclusively handling emails and online chat.

                      This could vastly increase the team productivity - I find it extremely difficult to answer up to 4 chats while also handling phone calls and emails and SMS, and I know I'm not the only one who finds it overwhelming.

                      I also worry at the increased possibility that someone would either a) fail to document an account properly, or b)…

                        You cannot copy a site page from on site to the site pages folder of another site. This is crazy. You can't restructure your pages into other sites. This prevents users from investing any effort in configuration that might change. It is extremely limiting.

                        • Statistics (Web analysis)

                          In the SharePoint 2010 we have used the statistics to make quarterly reports on all documents in the site. The report is of big help when we decide on which areas we should focus on update, create new, delete etc. In addition we also use it so log the traffic on our portal.

                          In the SharePoint online this is not possible as of today. Via the Site usage we only get to see the 8 documents that is viewed the most the last 7 days.

                            • Anchor Links or Collapsing Sections

                              It would be helpful to have sections that collapse, tabs, or anchor links for pages that contain lots of information. Word allows you to create bookmarks, and OneNote allows you to create tabs to easily navigate lots of information on a given topic. It would be great if you had the same flexibility with a page in SharePoint

                              • Bring back ability to edit HTML files in Modern File Text Editor

                                I LOVE the new Text Editor available on Modern Document Libraries to edit files directly in the browser. I use this feature ALL THE TIME. However it appears a new "feature" in document libraries is to preview HTML files and you have removed the ability to edit these files in the Modern Text Editor... BOO! I say.. BOO! Bring back the ability to edit HTML files in the Modern Text Editor.

                                • Change default setting for access requests from "Edit" to "Read"

                                  Since there is no existing way to control the default settings for user access requests, and since the default is currently set to 'Edit,' this creates a situation in which a user who may have never accessed Sharepoint before and simply wants to read a news article must instead be granted editing rights--creating a scenario in which many inexperienced users who are only looking to read or download content have to be given the power to create serious, unintentional damage to a page by being granted editing rights. A much more prudent approach would be to set the default permission…

                                    • allow SharePoint calendar app synchronization to OWA

                                      We would like to have the functionality to sync the SharePoint calendar app to OWA. Currently SharePoint calendar app syncs only to the Outlook desktop application vice versa.

                                      • Allow us to save “workflow history” of each item

                                        *English follows Japanese

                                        ■Title(件名):
                                        "ワークフローの状態" 画面の保存について
                                        Allow us to save “workflow history” of each item

                                        ■Description(内容):
                                        SharePoint Online のワークフローで、各アイテムの "ワークフローの状態" 画面にある "ワークフローの履歴" を保存したい。ワークフローの履歴をまとめたリストがあるのは知っているが、アイテムごとの "ワークフローの履歴" を保存できるようにしてほしい。

                                        We would like to save “workflow history” of each item from “Workflow Status” page for SharePoint Online workflow.

                                        We know there is a list of workflow history, but if I can save for each item, it would be more usable.

                                        Thank you for your consideration.

                                        • Ability to add version comments when uploading a new file on modern UI document library

                                          The window for adding version comments with the checkbox for "Add as a new version to existing files" is missing in modern UI document library, but shows in classic experience. Is this feature already removed or still being transitioned from the classic view to modern view?
