  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  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.

  6. Branding SharePoint 2019 On-Premise - Allow Custom themes using site design and scripts

    Currently branding the modern pages (Themes) using site design and site scripts is available in SharePoint online only and not yet supported in SharePoint 2019. Our organization is planning the portals in SP 2019 and we need brand our sites based on organization-defined color palettes. Hence, themes need to be customized. Kindly let us know your plans regarding site designs and scripts in Sharepoint 2019. It's going to be very important feature going forward. Thank you!

    Currently whenever an item is added, external users are informed using the notification setting in OneDrive for Business.
    However, recently the sending of these mails has been blocked by safeguard functions on Exchange, and therefore there are intermittent periods where they cannot be sent.
    Since there is no way for administrators to check if the above has happened, they are required to check with the users every time.

    Behavior of the search function in SharePoint Online

    情報が錯そうし混乱をうむことを避けるため、メールで共有していたものを Microsoft Teams に移行し、作業の効率化が実現できています。
    しかしながら、Microsoft Teams 内のチームで共有したファイルは、SharePoint Online に保存される動作となります。

    より良い製品のため、SharePoint Online の検索機能のワードブレイクの向上及び、検索機能の見直しを要望いたします。

    Currently, due to the effect that word breaks have, the search function is not convenient for users in Japan.
    In order to avoid confusion in the exchange of information between personnel, we have started to use Microsoft Teams for sharing content that was formerly shared via email and have managed to make our work more efficient.
    However, files shared on Microsoft Teams are saved on SharePoint Online. …

    しかしながら、最近メールの送信が Exchange 側のセーフガード機能によりブロックされ、通知が送信されない動作が断続的に発生しています。

    事象が継続的でなく、送信されない事象が発生するのもランダムであるため、毎回確認を実施するのはかなりの業務量であり、通常の業務に支障が発生します。
    そのため、OneDrive for Business、及び SharePoint Online のシステム アカウントから送信されたメールは、Exchange 側のセーフガード機能のブロック対象とならないよう機能の拡張を要望します。

    We have set up notifications in OneDrive for Business, and are contacting external users with a notification whenever a new item is added.
    However, recently the sending of mails has been blocked by safeguards on the Exchange side, and thus the notifications fail to be sent. This has continued for some time.

    The occurrence of this issue is not constant, however, and the…

  11. drag and drop files to grouped library view

    Drag and drop files into a library is working fine....unless you drop the file into a header of a grouped view..... Then the file is NOT uploaded at all.
    What would be nice (and has been working in the past): when dropping a file into a grouped view, the file should assume the metadata for that group.
    Frustrating is that this worked in the past and even now, the group where you want to drop is outlined when hovering above it with the dragged file.
    Already reported this to Microsoft Support (Case #;19765187) but got the answer that this is…

  12. 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.

  14. Access the stock images as a standalone image library and not just through the image webpart/adding an image to a page.

    To browse stock images, you have to go through the image webpart or by adding an image to a page.

    Please make it possible to view the stock images as a library in its own right, from which you can download images directly or grab a link to that image to share with others.

  15. A OOTB feature should be available to hide "Shared with Us" link

    A OOTB feature should be available to hide "Shared with Us" link. Also, a suggestion regarding the placement of this link.
    Can we have this link on the document library ribbon menu instead of Left navigation menu.

  17. Prevent closing Office Online docs if the changes has not been successfully saved

    Some users reported that the changes made in SPO posted Office online documents have not been saved.

    We were wondering if it is possible to prevent closing the document before the changes has been saved and implement an error message which will worn us that we will loose the content if we close the document?

    This feature could be useful and prevent unnecessary data loss for our users.

    Thanks!

  19. Keep encoded URLs in case of discarding check out

    Similar to SharePointOnline, encoded URLs should be kept when users discard check out at a page of document libraries in SharePointServer 2013, 2016 and 2019.
    This function will make it possible to enhance SharePoint usability because encoded URLs are kept in check out, check in, save, restore from version history.
