  1. 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…

  2. When using the copy/move file feature, provide the ability to enter metadata for the file in the destination library

    Hey there,
    we have staff who are constantly moving files from one document library to another. We'd love the ability for users to enter metadata for the file for the destination library before the file is copied or moved to that location.

    This would save our staff a lot of time copying the file, and then having to go to the destination to enter the additional metadata required.

  3. Fixing the Expand Content Feature in a Document Library

    This feature was working well until a service incident shown that the collapse function from the expand content feature is not working. Thus, not able to return to regular view.
    Though the service incident is now lifted, we are left on resulting to refresh the page which makes the Expand Content button "one-way".

    ■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.

  11. 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!!!

  13. Open PDF files in Microsoft Word client application

    Many people want to open PDF files in Adobe client application (uservoice created since 15. february 2016), but would it be possible to open in Microsoft Word client application instead?

    Word already support open a PDF file without converting it to a Word document, and open the file directly wherever it's stored (for example, double-click the PDF file in your Documents folder).

    We can even edit the PDF file using Word (Word makes a copy of the PDF, converting it to a Word document and attempting to match layout of the original PDF. You always have the original PDF file,…

  14. 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.

    When items are uploaded from the Classic UI or explorer to document libraries that have compulsory columns set, files will be checked out automatically, and the items uploaded will not be displayed to other users. It is very troublesome for users when checkout is done automatically, so please change this to let the upload continue by itself.

  18. external user permission

    Currently there is no option to provide custom permission levels to an external user.
    I want an external user to upload files but not delete anything. I find only view and edit permission levels against a external user.

    I think this is very important as we need to restrict certain permissions for an external user
