  1. Drag and drop folders in browser for SharePoint 2016

    Our state organization has upgraded SharePoint from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016. This upgrade has resulted in a functionality loss of being able to drag and drop folders to libraries in browser. We are requesting that Microsoft restore the drag drop folder functionality in SharePoint 2016 that was lost. This loss has had an adverse impact to our business users.

  2. 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…

  3. 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. Full With News Webpart with Parellex scroll

    For the next version of the LEGO Intranet I'll very much like to be able to show news in a full width News Web-part with Parellex scroll for the smooth effect of the Hero web-part.
    This will make my new Intranet "Home" page look as good and modern as it can get but with dynamic news as the main content and not static content as the Hero web-part delivers.

    I'm suggestion to add full with option the the News Web-part and to give it the high modern feel of the Hero Web-part.

  5. Be able to set mandatory SharePoint properties/metadata when saving a Word document to a SharePoint document library

    If you create a Word document and save it (from within Word) to a document library in SharePoint that has required columns, Word will first show a yellow warning in the notification bar, indicating that required properties need to be filled in before saving and then show the SharePoint properties on the right hand side of the document (the new Document Information Panel). No SharePoint properties are however shown in the form. If all the columns are optional, you will be able to fill them in by clicking on the "Properties" icon in the Ribbon's "View" tab.
    By clicking on…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

    Today an image occupies the width of the container it’s in (e.g. 1/3 column). Assuming you could make your image smaller than the column width, what level of alignment would you want? Is left, right, center sufficient, or are you wanting vertical alignment in the negative space around the image (e.g. top, middle, bottom)? What would you expect happens to the space on different break points (e.g. iPad, mobile phone, etc.) Does it go away, or is it somehow retained? Thanks.

  9. Calendar Export Feature to Include All Recurring Items

    To allow exporting items from a Calendar list to a report, such as excel, of all items within the selected calendar including the RECURRING items for each instance, not just the first instance of each item, as these events are actually recurring and should have an option to be shown as such. Also, the ability to provide a date range to limit the export data for the desired report.

  10. 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.

  11. Kick or Remove Users that have a SP document Open

    It would be nice if the owner of a document could ‘kick/remove’ users in the document and stop sharing for a period if needed. This would be useful if a guest user leaves a document open on their computer and is no longer active/editing. Also, it can be useful if you want to be the only one in the document for a short period of time for thick client compatibility issues etc. Auto-save should essentially capture anything the guest user updated before they are kicked out and the document is temporarily removed from sharing.

  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. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  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. Top Nav support on Modern Team Sites

    Our organization would love to see the top nav from the communication site template allowed to be used in Team sites, with both Mega Menu and Cascading options. With the team site as the default for a Microsoft Team, we are consistently being asked for a top nav option when the group tries to use the SPO pages of their team site. It would be great if both left and top nav could be supported at the same time for a team site.

  19. The document library WebPart should interpret .url files as links rather than downloads

    If someone creates a link file (.url) in modern document libraries and clicks on them, he is rerouted to the target url.
    If you embed a document library Web Part in a modern SharePoint page that points to the same document library and you click the .url file, a download will be triggered.
    However, the creators expect the URL files to behave in the same way as they do in the document library, so the user is redirected to the landing page.
