  1. Timeline - Gantt View in Modern Experience

    Timeline in Modern Experience Gantt View

    The tasks app should allow a timeline to be created and displayed in the modern experience of sharepoint online.

    Tasks needs to be created and searchable in the modern experience. Just like it use to work in the classic experience.

  3. Enhance view and column formatting


    • Provide an out of the box facility via the web interface to allow users to make selections to modify the formatting rather than having to generate the JSON themselves.

    • Allow the JSON to be specified with a file reference rather than having to put the code directly in a field. (See also user voice entry: Allow View Formatting to reference external file, https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/35836723-allow-vi...).

    • Prompt for updating view formatting JSON when someone with appropriate rights changes the display width of a field.

    • Allow the Name field for a document to be formatted via view formatting and improve the formatting capabilities…

  4. You may also be interested in

    The ability to turn off the new feature for the whole tenancy for, 'You may also be interested in" on SharePoint online.

    Currently have to do this by page, for 7 intranets, time consuming and annoying, better to have it off by default and allow users to turn on if they need it. This is creating huge problems for us

  5. Open ".xdw" file in browser without downloading it

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ブラウザーで表示できない形式のファイルについて

    Open ".xdw" file in browser without downloading it


    ".xdw" 形式のファイルなどをドキュメント ライブラリに保存した際、ブラウザーから開く際にはダウンロードされてから開く動作となる。関連するアプリケーションと関連付けを行う機能等により、".xdw" 形式のファイルなどを直接ブラウザーで表示が可能とする機能の実装を希望。

    When we try to open ".xdw" format files stored in document library, we first have to download it to open up. What I would like to happen is for the file to simply be displayed in the browser without downloading it.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Enable experiencing a page, solution or site as a different user, e.g. provide the ability to impersonate a user with fewer rights

    As Microsoft increasingly supports tailored experiences, we need the ability to operate as a user with equivalent or fewer credentials, including just not being the person who added information.

    For example, a site owner who made updates to a site is seeing Updated Pages (with explicit pages underneath) in the left navigation, but has no rights to remove the navigation and didn't realize that other people weren't seeing those pages.

    Another case was where the SCA had no issue opening a document with embedded documents, but it would not open for site owners and contributors.

    In our on-prem environment, I…

  9. Freeze column headings for Quick Edit Mode

    Would love to see the ability to freeze column headers at the top of the page when a user scrolls through a long list in the Quick Edit Mode.

  10. 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:

    wicSystemGPSLatitude
    wic
    SystemGPSLongitude

    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!!!

  11. 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.

  12. Filter Pane (All Promoted Links)

    We would like to have the possibility to display the filtered selection values alphabetically sorted at the "Filter pane" on the right side.

    Unfortunately this is not the case at the moment.

  13. 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…

  15. Allow open link in new tab on Image web part hyperlinks

    On the Image web part, please allow the ability to open hyperlinks in a new tab or window. Currently you can specify a hyperlink but can't control how it opens.

  16. page recommendations

    We would prefer that SharePoint page recommendations be turned off by default. This was not a well thought out idea and now we will need to instruct our site owners how to turn off this feature on 1000s of SharePoint site collections.

  17. Make custom page templates available to all sites in hub

    When you create a page template on a hub site, then it would be great if that page template would be available to all sites associated with the hub.

  18. 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.

  19. Hide classic site templates for sub sites under modern communication and group connected team sites.

    When creating a sub site under a modern communication site or group connected team sites, see options to select "Team Site (classic experience), Blog, Project Site, Community Sit", and these all are classic site templates.
    If the root site (communication site) is customized with modern features like, Theme (for corporate branding), Hub site, Hub site navigation, SPFx Application customizer, the sub site created with classic templates fails to render the above modern features. And it is difficult to navigate to other sites from the classic site.
    Either stop showing such classic site templates except (Team site (no Office 365 group))…

  20. 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…
