  1. Save the data: SharePoint Online forms(dialog) customized with PowerApps

    Japanese follows English.

    Improvement on Sharepoint Online with PowerApps will contribute to many users as follows:

    We have customized a Custom list item view / edit screen of SPO(SharePointOnline) with PowerApps.

    (Normal behavior)
    Clicking item of "title hyperlink" from default list view, a customized dialog window comes up front.
    I change it to "edit mode" and can edit the item in the dialog window.

    (To be improved)
    However, when I click on the parent (list view) window behind the dialog, the dialog closes unexpectedly and the data I have edited disappear sadly without saved.
    (I need to re-open the dialog…

  2. 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.

  3. To provide features to restrict certain updates to modern pages created from a page template

    Like classic SharePoint publishing pages, it would be good to include possibility to restrict updates to the section layout and web part properties of a modern page created from a page templates.

    The need is to allow lock down of advanced editing features like add / remove sections, add / remove web parts, change placement of web parts on such modern pages and help mimic features of the classic publishing layout.

    The business case driving this change is to bring uniformity to page content created from specific page templates.

  4. Timeline - Gantt View in Modern Experience

    Timeline in Modern Experience Gantt View

    The tasks app should allow a timeline to be created and displayed in the modern experience of sharepoint online.

    Tasks needs to be created and searchable in the modern experience. Just like it use to work in the classic experience.

  5. 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.

  7. Add an option to truncate/show all by default "Multiple lines of text" column in a Sharepoint list

    It would be really great if there will be an option to truncate or show all the content of a "Multiple lines of text" column in a Sharepoint list.

  8. Fix the ability to insert multiple Excel objects into Excel from SharePoint.

    If you try and import an Excel object multiple times into Excel from a file on OneDrive / SharePoint an error will occur and the original document will be marked as hidden when opening. The problem does not occur if the file is not part of OneDrive / SharePoint syncing process. MS support says this is a known issue. The workaround is to disable "Use Office applications to Sync Office files that I open", which defeats some of the features of OneDrive/SharePoint for our business.

  9. Additional variable control for dark background section...

    Request: additional variable for dark section background. Right now Theme Primary controls both button colors, link colors, and the dark section background.

    From a design perspective this doesn't often make sense, to have a high contrast color that one might use for buttons (think bright red or bright purple) to be used as the dark section background where one often wants dark blue or slate gray.

    The other issue is body text which should use the body text variable but instead it uses neutral primary.

    Why is this bad? If a client wants body text (i.e. for text in news…

  10. Enhance view and column formatting


    • Provide an out of the box facility via the web interface to allow users to make selections to modify the formatting rather than having to generate the JSON themselves.

    • Allow the JSON to be specified with a file reference rather than having to put the code directly in a field. (See also user voice entry: Allow View Formatting to reference external file, https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/35836723-allow-vi...).

    • Prompt for updating view formatting JSON when someone with appropriate rights changes the display width of a field.

    • Allow the Name field for a document to be formatted via view formatting and improve the formatting capabilities…

  11. When using the copy/move file feature, provide the ability to enter metadata for the file in the destination library

    Hey there,
    we have staff who are constantly moving files from one document library to another. We'd love the ability for users to enter metadata for the file for the destination library before the file is copied or moved to that location.

    This would save our staff a lot of time copying the file, and then having to go to the destination to enter the additional metadata required.

  12. Flow Stop sharing a SharePoint folder

    I would like the ability to use Microsoft flow to manage SharePoint folders permissions (Permission list: Full Control | Edit | View) for the following entities users, security groups and Office 365 groups (Operations: Add | Remove | Modify)

    As of today 20191113, the tech article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#stop-sharing-an-item-or-a-folder) says it provide this functionality, yet by testing and through MS support it does not work. This is folder operation in specific and not an item or file

  13. Published date not shown correctly

    If we enable the feature "Show published date" on a news article the information is shown just beneath the author.

    It is however NOT the (First-) Published Date shown. Instead the Changed Date is shown.

    This has been verified by changing the "Changed" field value using script.

    When editing the news article the label "Draft created on" is prefixed to the date which indicate that the date is in fact reflecting "Changed" date and NOT FirstPublishedDate.

    Most authors would like to have the FirstPublishedDate shown - and perhaps also the Changed date as an option.

  16. Open ".xdw" file in browser without downloading it

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ブラウザーで表示できない形式のファイルについて

    Open ".xdw" file in browser without downloading it


    ".xdw" 形式のファイルなどをドキュメント ライブラリに保存した際、ブラウザーから開く際にはダウンロードされてから開く動作となる。関連するアプリケーションと関連付けを行う機能等により、".xdw" 形式のファイルなどを直接ブラウザーで表示が可能とする機能の実装を希望。

    When we try to open ".xdw" format files stored in document library, we first have to download it to open up. What I would like to happen is for the file to simply be displayed in the browser without downloading it.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. You may also be interested in

    The ability to turn off the new feature for the whole tenancy for, 'You may also be interested in" on SharePoint online.

    Currently have to do this by page, for 7 intranets, time consuming and annoying, better to have it off by default and allow users to turn on if they need it. This is creating huge problems for us

  18. Fixing the Expand Content Feature in a Document Library

    This feature was working well until a service incident shown that the collapse function from the expand content feature is not working. Thus, not able to return to regular view.
    Though the service incident is now lifted, we are left on resulting to refresh the page which makes the Expand Content button "one-way".

    We are using SharePoint Online document library to manage files.
    Although the number of results is displayed normally immediately after the search, when grouping is performed on the search result columns, the number of results displayed will differ from the results displayed immediately after the search.
    Grouping is a function that makes the display easier to look at, but it does not provide the correct information due to differences in the number…
