  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  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:

    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!!!

  4. 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.

  6. We hope that the Back button on the browser will work when no site access permissions are available

    サイトに権限がない場合に、ブラウザーの [戻る] ボタンが動作するようにしてほしい
    We hope that the Back button on the browser will work when no site access permissions are available


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトに権限がない場合に、ライブラリ内のフォルダーを開いた後、ブラウザーの [戻る] ボタンをクリックしても、1 階層上のフォルダーが表示されない動作となっている。
    パンくずリストから戻ることはできるものの、普段からブラウザーの [戻る] ボタンで戻る操作を行うことが多いため、特定の場合だけ [戻る] ボタンで戻れないのは不便である。
    このため、サイトに権限がない場合でも、ブラウザーの [戻る] ボタンで前のフォルダーに戻ることができるようにしてほしい。
    If there are no site access permissions and the Back button on the browser is clicked after opening a folder inside the library, folders in the previous directory will not be displayed.
    Even though this can be done by using the breadcrumbs, the Back button on the browser is used more frequently and thus it is inconvenient if pressing the Back button…

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  10. Change permission of parent folder but NOT sub folders/files

    We need to be able to change the permission on a parent folder but for the sub folders and files to not change with it. Currently you have to change the permissions of each and every subfolder individually.

  11. Preview doesn't work in search list

    Opening a document library you can preview the contained documents and paging them through by using the “<prev” and “next>” buttons in the top bar across the browser. This works great!

    When filtering (using the search field) the library, I get a list of result documents. When previewing the filtered list there is no paging possible. The buttons “<prev” and “next>” and also the 'x' for closing the preview is missing.

    Our document library contains thousands of documents. Previewing the search results is essential!

    I'm sure this features already worked some time ago.

    Please improve this so that the "Open using client application" setting can be applied.

  13. 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".

  14. Option to turn off popup when opening files in client application

    We have our library set to open files in the client application by default. It's quite annoying that you get a popup prompt to 'Open in Word?' and so on each time you open a document. Is there a way this can be turned on/off?

    It is possible to change the number of previous versions retained in the Document Library between 100 and 50000 on SharePoint Online sites. Since the version history also affects the storage of the machine in use, I want the functionality to be expanded so that I can set the retention number to less than 100 or less.

  18. Ability to Customize Link Settings to any combination of Types of Links for SP Doc Library

    Ability to restrict Shareable links within Document libraries to People with Existing Access to a particular site within the organization. Allow for a particular Site the selection of what types of shareable links they wish to use. For example, allow the Site to be restricted to 'People with Existing Access" and "Specific People" or only one type of Shareable link. Supports the idea of restricting for members within the organization to not share beyond a certain authorized group within the organization.

  20. update the SPO document library download (to .zip) to work with files/folders that have % symbol

    Currently, in Sharepoint online, you can use the % and # in folder/file names. However when you select a folder and download it (default behavior is to download to zip) it fails to include any files/folders that include the % followed by numbers that would relate to a url encoding. It would be nice if this just worked. Since the % is now allowed in file and folder names in SPO the utilities that access those file paths should be updated so they function the same.
