  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  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. Add the possibility to select ''Title is Different from...'' in the filter options of the News Web part

    Adding the possibility to select the option: The title is different from ... in the News Web part, combined with another specific metadata filter, would allow us to show similar articles, without having to show the article they just read.

    Example : when publishing the economical Article #6, applying the option: The title is different from Article #6, and adding a metadata filter option to show all the economical articles...

    The News Web part would show all the economical articles excluding the Article #6 which the user had just read.

    Behavior of the search function in SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online はワードブレイクの影響により日本国圏内のユーザーにとっては、利便性に欠けます。
    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。
    ファイルの量が多い際、素早く情報にアクセスするためには、検索の動作向上が大きな課題です。
    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. …

  8. 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…

  10. Warn user of the consequences of setting retention on folder

    When end users chose to mark a folder for retention, it marks EVERY document within that folder with the same retention label. At large scale, it is only possible to fix this mess via Powershell.

    It would surely be better if the user was warned of this outcome in advance with an "Are you sure?" message. (Admins could have the right to turn off this message on a site-by-site basis or at a global level.)

    ■Description(内容):
    カスタム リストの複数行テキストにファイルをアップロードした場合、既定でサイトのリソース ファイル内に保存されますが、その際に同名ファイルが存在した場合、自動的にファイルが上書きされる動作となっております。
    ファイルによっては、残したいファイルもございますため、ファイルアップロード時に同名のファイルがあった場合、上書きの可否を確認する、またはファイル名の後ろに番号が追記されるような形で重要なファイルの上書き保存を防ぐような機能の実装を希望致します。

    If a file has been uploaded to a multi-line text in a custom list, by default it is stored in the site resource file. However, if a file with the same name already exists, it will be automatically overwritten.
    Since there are files that we want to keep unchanged, in cases where a file is uploaded with the same name as an existing one, please make it so that the user has to give their…

  12. 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.

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!

    面右上の [フォローしていません] [共有] 画面左下の [従来のSharePointの表示に戻す] 等のリンクや ドキュメントライブラリを開いた時の [同期] [PowerApps] [自動化] などのボタン、歯車アイコンなど、様々な機能やボタンがあります。
    管理者が設定画面より各機能について ON/OFF を簡単に出来る機能の実装を要望します。
    一般ユーザーが利用する際、不要なものを非表示とすることで、誤操作を無くし、操作説明者の負担を少なくすることができるためです。
    なお、UserVoice に、各ボタンや機能ごとに非表示とする要望が多数登録されていることは確認していますが、要望されている箇所をPowerShellを使わずに設定画面から ON/OFF できるとよいと思います。

    There are a number of functions and buttons around the interface, including links for “Not following” “Share” in the top right, “Return to classic SharePoint” in the bottom left, and “Sync”, “PowerApps”, “Automate”, and cog buttons when opening a document library,
    Please make it possible for admins to turn each of these on or off from the settings screen. …

  15. Sizes of files which may be uploaded is limited in cases where user has no “Edit item” permissions

    "アイテムの編集" 権限がない場合のアップロード可能なファイルのサイズを拡張してほしい。
    Sizes of files which may be uploaded is limited in cases where user has no “Edit item” permissions


    ■Description(内容):
    検証結果から、現時点では "アイテムの編集" 権限がない場合のアップロード可能なファイルのサイズが約 100 MB までであり、圧縮されたファイルの場合は 25 MB までであることを確認している。
    上記制限があると、"アップロードのみ可能とし、編集はさせたくない" という運用を実施した場合に利便性が下がり、ユーザーへの説明や対応が求められる状況となるため工数が増える。

    We have tested and confirmed that at present, if there is no “Edit item” permission present, the maximum size of files which may be uploaded is set to 100 MB, or 25 MB for compressed files.
    With this restriction in place, the usefulness of applying a “Allow only uploading, do not allow editing” rule drops significantly, and it also means we have to do…

  16. 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.

  17. Give option to disable shy header in modern pages

    The new shy header in modern pages looks good in OOTB pages, but if there are any customizations (e.g. with custom web part), especially at the top of the page, it cause scrolling issues....also if you have a back to the top button feature, it does not exactly scroll back up to the top. With an opt out/opt-in feature, if there are any customizations we can turn it off for a better UX.

  20. Feature to surface View information in SharePoint for documents and pages

    Give an option to export or surface Views/File Statistics information of all pages/documents in a document/pages library in an SPO site. Currently this information can be accessed per each file by going to File -> Details -> Views. We'd like either a report that we can generate or the ability to add these "Views" and "Viewers" as columns in a view.
