  1. Ability to use <frame>, <iframe>, <object>, <embed> on non .sharepoint.com websites to embed content from .sharepoint.com

    Currently SharePoint returns https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/X-Frame-Options header when trying to embed (with <frame>, <iframe>, <object>, <embed>) documents from external websites. The header is set to "sameorigin" that simply means only pages hosted on .sharepoint.com domain can do that.

    So let's see below example:
    1. Company XYZ has an internal domain: xyz.com. Company is using SharePoint and stores documents e.g.: pdf's there.
    2. Company XYZ has an internal technical portal: portal.xzy.com and want's to s embed documents from SharePoint.
    3. Because of X-Frame-Options returned along for any pdf/doc/xls etc document #2 is impossible as web browsers will not allow to do this kind…

  2. 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!!!

  4. Add the ability to copy a modern site page from one site to another

    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.

  5. 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…

  6. Delete Button on Modern Pages

    Modern pages are sick, everyone knows it. But! There is one action where I still have to navigate to: Settings > Site Contents > Site Pages

    To delete a page.

    Would love to have a delete button on Modern Pages.

    Super useful for end users who for instance, could be managing rolled up news in a Hub site. They don't know where the news is coming from, but maybe they want to delete an article because it isn't appropriate. How do they know where the article came from? How many clicks could it save?

    Vote #1: Add delete button to…

  7. 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.

  8. Make Metadata columns visible in Windows Explorer

    The ability to display metadata columns in Windows Explorer would provide benefits for bulk uploading; accuracy and drive user adoption. Please consider this implementing this functionality.

  11. 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.

  12. Modernize SharePoint Calendar with Overlays

    Modern Events/Webpart is a good addition but we badly need a full featured modern calendar (full page month/week/day view) with the ability to create color overlay calendar. There should also be option to add this modern calendar to a page (like month view). There are two many options for calendar within Office 365 (Exchange, Group Calendar, Planner etc.) but none is able to meet simple requirements.

  13. Ability to align images on modern pages

    I'd like to align an image directly from the image webpart.
    This is really annoying that the pages are so easy to create but that you can't control the image alignment on the page.

    Aligning images is an essential.

  14. (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

  15. 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.

  16. Notify Your Team message

    Can you please remove "Notify your team" notification? It is very annoying as I upload many, many files every day. Is it possible to have a setting to turn this off?

  17. Accessibility checker for content

    When writing content / building a new page / ... it would be great if there was an automated accessibility checker that could check for alt tags in pictures, heading structure, contrast and other related issues.

    This way Sharepoint could prevent accessibility issues. Extra important considering that also intranets will have to be compliant to accessibility laws in the EU (Web Accessibility Directive).

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
