  1. Allow Site Pages Templates to be Read Only to Members

    The Site Pages Templates feature is useful. However, if you set any of the templates in the Site Pages\Templates folder to be read-only for a user they no longer see that template available on the +New menu when trying to create a new page such as a News Post.

    Many of our users are modifying these templates when we don't want them to be able to.

    We raised a premier support ticket with Microsoft and they reproduced this behaviour and advised that users must have contribute access to a template to be able to create page based on that template.…

  2. Separate version history for file types with co-authoring and efficient shredded storage

    In each library, there should be two kinds of versioning settings, each with its own settings for major and minor versions.

    One kind of versioning settings for DOCX, XLSX and PPTX (i.e. file types with co-authoring and efficient shredded storage). In those versioning settings, the number of major versions can be higher (since less storage is used for each version).

    Another kind of versioning settings for other file types (i.e. file types with less efficient shredded storage and no co-authoring). In those versioning settings, the number of major versions can be lower (since fewer version are probably needed and more…

  4. SharePoint List Column Width - Remove constraints on min and max width

    Hi There,

    I have found the minimum width value for each column header, and especially the title column, to be much too high. We should be able to condense or stretch any column header width to ANY desired value and then save the view. Any meaning any.

    SharePoint Lists' restriction on the range of widths allowed for a column header makes it incredibly difficult to promote using the product in our company. Which is in turn restricting our ability to embrace PowerApps and Power Automate.

    To be clear:
    This is for SharePoint on Outlook 365 with modern view.
    I am…

  5. Option to set video playback speed

    The document library supports plenty of video file types and the player supports play, pause, and skip using the timeline.

    Adding the option to adjust payback speed in the viewer would be extremely useful.

    Video is being shared more frequently so the option to consume it at a higher or slower rate to optimize for time or understanding would be valuable - it's currently supported in the Streams viewer.

  6. New library setting: prevent deletion by offline clients

    To prevent mass deletion of synced files by users who clean up their disk or forgot a sync was active, it would be great to have a checkbox in the library settings "Prevent Deletion by Offline Clients". Which would require people to go to the online site to delete files. deleting from the local synced folder would only delete the local copies.

    Mass deletion happens frequently in our (large) tenant. Adding the ability to prevent deletion of synced files would save our support guys a lot of work! And save our project leaders some headaches!

  7. 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.

  8. Browse Site Pages library to create hyperlink

    When adding a link to the Hero web part or the Quick links web part you cannot browse through the Site Pages library when selecting Sites. You might get lucky and find the page you want to link to in Recent but if not you are going to have to paste the link in the From a link area. I can browse other libraries to link to a document but I can't browse the Site Pages library to link to a page... WHY??

    Microsoft why are you making it so difficult for users to add links to pages??

    Please list…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Document templates can't be used from the 'new' button if a person isn't a member or visitor of a site

    Document templates can't be used from the 'new' button if a person isn't a member or visitor of a site even if a folder in the site is shared with edit rights to them.
    You also can't change the rights on the hidden 'forms' folder where the templates get saved after uploading them via the 'new' button so you cannot resolve this, the user can however still see the 'template' in the new button, but clicking on it just takes you to an about:blank page.

    You should be able to share a folder and allow someone to use the templates…

  13. 'Select all' function for page, document and list properties

    Current situation:

    There is currently no 'Select all' function for multiselection tags for page, document or list properties available. It's very time consuming to select e.g. 150 tags of a single term set within page properties.

    Improvement:

    Implement a 'Select all' function for page, document or list properties.

  14. 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.

  15. Page references and item usage (Content life-cycle management)

    Current situation:

    It's not possible in SharePoint Online to display referenced items (e.g. linked documents or list items in the quick links web part or files in the file viewer web part) in the page details. Furthermore, it's not possible to show the usage of a page, file or list item in the details of an item. Usage is e.g. when an file stored in a document library is linked on a page(s) or in an list item.

    Improvement:

    Modern document management with SharePoint will be more efficient and would reach another level of maturity if the feature of page…

  16. Search feature for document/file selection in web parts

    Current situation:

    There is currently no possibilty to search for documents/file when selecting the document/file which must be linked in a web part e.g. quick link, image, image gallery. It is very diffucult and time consuming for the users to find the target document/file in the documenty library of the site if there are hundereds of file stored in the library.

    Improvement:

    Add the search feature in addition to the column filters to the document/file selection in web parts.

  17. Quick links web part: Functionality to duplicate a link

    Current situation:
    No possibility to duplicate a link within the quick links web part.

    Improvement:

    It would be very nice and time saving if links within the quick links web part can be duplicated. This would be the consequent feature harmonization as it's already implemented for sections and web parts.

    Current situation:

    It's currently not possibile to trace the image location (e.g. links to the file located in 'Documents' of a site) of an image in the 'Image' web part.

    Improvement:

    Display the link of the current file as it is implemented in the 'Quick links' web part.

  19. Allow using SharePoint groups to target audiences in quick links web part

    Very happy to see the long awaited audience targeting feature for quick links web part is rolling out.

    But, currently we can only use the M365 or AD groups to target audiences. Many of our customers (and other people on different forums) wants to use SharePoint groups to target audiences instead of using M365 or AD groups.

    @Microsoft, please allow using SharePoint groups to target audiences in quick links web part.

  20. 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.
