  2. Allow Javascript customization and CSS branding/theming in the new Document Library Experience

    Please allow javascript customization and css branding/theming in the new document library experience. A custom cross-site navigation is one example that is used by many customers. Also many customers want their intranet branded in a different color but office ui fabric blue.
    JSLink is also used very often. And don't Forget about all the third-party forms solution provider like Nintex and others.
    The new experience provides many advantages, but without customizations it is just not usable for larger intranets anymore.

  3. A simple move/copy function between SharePoint Online Document libraries/folders/files

    SharePoint Online Document Libraries are missing possibly the two most basic and fundamental functions in the online portal:


    • A move/cut function, which is missing altogether, both for folders and files

    • A copy function, which although technically exists, is really over complicated for a function which has existed in a much simpler form in every document repository technology since the mid-1980s...

    Currently, in order to move a file or folder from within the online portal between different libraries or even different folders within the same library...well the function just doesn't exist. So users need to either sync the site just to…

  4. Bulk check-in/check-out

    I need to be able to check-in or check-out multiple files. I'm not able to do this currently, when selecting multiple documents.

  5. Allow users to complete required metadata when uploading documents.

    Allow users to complete required metadata when uploading documents using the modern library view. Currently, users are not prompted to complete required fields or select a content type. As a result, the file is left in a checked-out state unless the user knows to edit the properties as a second step after uploading. This breaks sites that have structured metadata and/or specific content type usage requirements. SharePoint has always prompted for these required fields in the past, why remove that functionality?

  7. Copy document to same library

    When using the "Copy" function in a library, it seems the intention is to create a copy of the document in another library.

    But when users want to just create a copy of a document in the same location with a different file name, SharePoint throws an error.

    Why can the copy function not simply allow a new copy in the same library with a different filename?

  8. Regarding the library web part

    When you add a document library in modern UI to a page as a Web Part, it seems to be showing the library web part in classic UI.
    Is there any plan for the UI for library web parts to also become modern in the future?

    We would like the library web part to also be shown in modern UI.

  9. Remove the limit (5,000 items) on SharePoint Document Library Syncing

    The sync limit does not match OneDrive for Business, and adds complexity to the end user experience, administration and architecture of SharePoint. Please remove this sync limit.

    We’ve recently rolled out support for syncing your Team sites (including O365 Groups) and shared OneDrive for Business folders with our OneDrive sync client. You can read more here: https://blogs.office.com/2017/01/24/onedrive-brings-new-file-collaboration-and-management-features-to-the-enterprise/ This includes no longer being limited to 5,000 files in a team site, on your PC or Mac. Thanks!

  10. Make the "(+) new document" button in doclib match available ContentTypes in the New button from Ribbon.

    Please make the "(+) new document" button from the web part and document libraries match available CTs as the ones available under the "New" button from the Ribbon. Please also include "Document sets" in the available CTs :)

  11. Managed Navigation for new Document Library Experience

    Currently the new document library experience does not support Managed Navigation. It would be great to have this as currently using the structured navigation seems buggy in the new experience. Specifically, it ignores the "hidden" attribute of structured navigation which can make for some large menus. We love the new experience and are hoping to train users up and roll it out however we need to get navigation right before we can do this.

    Thank you for the feedback requesting support for classic publishing on modern pages in team sites. We have rolled out an update that will now correctly render your structured or managed navigation links on modern pages in classic team sites.

    Please see the help article (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Customize-the-navigation-on-your-team-site-3cd61ae7-a9ed-4e1e-bf6d-4655f0bf25ca?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US) for more details – or visit the MS Tech Community (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/UPDATE-Support-for-Structured-Managed-Navigation-enabled-on/m-p/57384) to share any comments/questions.

  12. External Folder Sharing with without sign-in

    Number 1 limitation is the fact that we cannot share folders without requiring users to sign-in. Adoption of this product will be limited without this feature.

    Just a brief update – this is a multi-phase fix. We have amended support in modern site header/pages for structured navigation, but if you are using managed navigation (via enabling publishing feature) support for this is still in the works. We are actively working on supporting this data provider and plan to have a fix soon.

    We’re going to resolve this idea – to track the remaining publishing work see/subscribe to: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/admin/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/14749329-managed-navigation-for-new-document-library-experi

  14. Top navigation on the new document library look

    It is crucial for many of our customers that they do not get their top-menu in SharePoint removed when accessing document libraries (the new OneDrive for Business look). Please make it possible to activate this so the users are not "lost" in their own intranet.

  15. List and Library Column Widths

    In document libraries and in the List View it would be great if the column widths and text size could be adjustable. This would make larger lists a bit more readable to the user rather that letting Sharepoint decide the column width.

  16. JSLink on displaying lists with new experience

    Now we're trying the display list using new experience which released recently.
    One important missing function is there is no way to do customization UI by using JavaScript. As you know the classic (current) experiense have JSLink. Hope to provide it on the new experience, too.

  17. Allow users to save a file from a SharePoint document library to their OneDrive

    give an easy way for users to copy a file from a SharePoint site document library into their own OneDrive For Business. It was announced at the "FutureOfSharePoint" webinar that users will be able to copy a file from their OneDrive to a SharePoint site and I think it would also be beneficial to allow users to copy files the other way. I
    m hoping this is already planned but just not mentioned.

  18. Quick Views support in Document Library UI

    Ok, so quick edit views seem to be not supported in the new UI...you can create a new quick edi view, but you can only use in the old UI. It could be nice, and necessary, to add support to quick views in the new UI

  19. Keep new and old document library view

    This is great but the option to use the older library by default should be available. The admin should be able to select the "one drive" view or the SharePoint view. It also should reflect the branding applied to the site in this version it seems that the user went to other site. The navigation from SharePoint should be always visible.

  20. Allow document to open in new tab on right click
