  2. Language change in SharePoint profile

    Provide a more straightforward way to change user language in SharePoint. Right now the user has to go to the Office profile > Update profile > find the “How can I change language and regional settings?“, etc... and then wait until the language change takes effect. As end user I would like to have a more handy and instant way to achieve this.

  3. Published date and Page details should be visible to readers

    On SharePoint modern pages, Published date and Page details option are not visible to users with read access.
    These fields can be shown to readers so that they can see this information easily.

  4. 'Select all' function for page, document and list properties

    Current situation:

    There is currently no 'Select all' function for multiselection tags for page, document or list properties available. It's very time consuming to select e.g. 150 tags of a single term set within page properties.

    Improvement:

    Implement a 'Select all' function for page, document or list properties.

  5. 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.

  6. Page references and item usage (Content life-cycle management)

    Current situation:

    It's not possible in SharePoint Online to display referenced items (e.g. linked documents or list items in the quick links web part or files in the file viewer web part) in the page details. Furthermore, it's not possible to show the usage of a page, file or list item in the details of an item. Usage is e.g. when an file stored in a document library is linked on a page(s) or in an list item.

    Improvement:

    Modern document management with SharePoint will be more efficient and would reach another level of maturity if the feature of page…

  7. Search feature for document/file selection in web parts

    Current situation:

    There is currently no possibilty to search for documents/file when selecting the document/file which must be linked in a web part e.g. quick link, image, image gallery. It is very diffucult and time consuming for the users to find the target document/file in the documenty library of the site if there are hundereds of file stored in the library.

    Improvement:

    Add the search feature in addition to the column filters to the document/file selection in web parts.

  8. Put field choices in alphabetical order

    The latest update to Sharepoint took away the ability to manually alphabetize the menu options in a "choice" field list. Now the new choices just get added to the bottom, which will make it much harder to search for the appropriate choice.

  9. Quick links web part: Functionality to duplicate a link

    Current situation:
    No possibility to duplicate a link within the quick links web part.

    Improvement:

    It would be very nice and time saving if links within the quick links web part can be duplicated. This would be the consequent feature harmonization as it's already implemented for sections and web parts.

  10. Color coding for modern list Calendar views

    Right now, it is not possible to color code the calendar view for modern lists based on choice fields or using JSON formatting. This would be a useful feature for calendars with many items. This would be something that would bring back functionality that classic Calendars were able to do.

  11. Image web part: Display the image link for image location tracebilty

    Current situation:

    It's currently not possibile to trace the image location (e.g. links to the file located in 'Documents' of a site) of an image in the 'Image' web part.

    Improvement:

    Display the link of the current file as it is implemented in the 'Quick links' web part.

  12. Option to set video playback speed

    The document library supports plenty of video file types and the player supports play, pause, and skip using the timeline.

    Adding the option to adjust payback speed in the viewer would be extremely useful.

    Video is being shared more frequently so the option to consume it at a higher or slower rate to optimize for time or understanding would be valuable - it's currently supported in the Streams viewer.

  13. Add *.businesscentral.dynamics.com to content-security-policy in response header

    It would be great to have *.businesscentral.dynamics.com in content-security-policy in the response header when requesting files from a site.

    Current content-security-policy is frame-ancestors 'self' teams.microsoft.com .teams.microsoft.com .skype.com .teams.microsoft.us local.teams.office.com .powerapps.com .yammer.com .officeapps.live.com .stream.azure-test.net .microsoftstream.com;

    Please append *.businesscentral.dynamics.com to that already long list.

    Thanks

  14. 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.

  15. Allow OneDrive Shortcuts without Files On Demand

    Give users the ability to choose between files on demand or online only access when adding shortcuts to libraries/folders in SharePoint online. The OneDrive app currently supports this and you can see all of your shortcuts in an online only manner without having to cache/sync anything.

  16. Enable @mention of an O365 group from News Post/Sharepoint page

    Please enable the ability to @mention an O365 group from a Sharepoint page. This will allow the power of push notifications, on mobile devices, to reach an intended audience. It works great for individuals but cannot do it for groups. It will allow a News post to be directed to a target group, then with one click on the received notification, the News post will open in the mobile Sharepoint app.

  17. Prevent users from creating communication sites thru UI and scripts

    The current settings that exist to prevent creation of sites do not apply to communication sites. While its possible to hide the "create site" option from the menu if users access directly to the creation URL they will be able to create these thru the UI and also thru powershell or scripts.

    This is a governance issue that should be resolved.

  19. 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.

  20. Allow Custom Modern Page Template to be Added as Default Template to Content Type

    Please allow the ability to be able to add a Modern Page Template (like created in Site Pages) as the default document template attached to a Custom Content Type on a Page Library.

    The requirement is that the page must use this template and this page must have mandatory columns completed. This is not possible at this stage as advised by your support team.
