    ドキュメント ライブラリにおけるクラシック UI から モダン UI への移行に伴い、利用方法のマニュアルを用意してほしい
    Create a manual detailing how to migrate a document library from the classic to the modern UI


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにおけるクラシック UI から モダン UI への移行を検討しているが、機能更新を理由に利用方法のマニュアルが用意されていない。
    モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリは クラシック UI のドキュメント ライブラリと比較し、表示が使い勝手が大きく異なるため、利用ユーザーにとって負担が非常に大きい。
    利用ユーザーの負担を軽減させる観点から、機能の対照表やマニュアルに準ずる資料を用意してほしい。

    We are considering migrating a document library from the classic to the modern UI but there is no manual detailing how to for update reasons.
    Compared to classic UI document libraries, modern UI document libraries have a lot of differences, so there is a large demand placed on the user.
    In order to reduce this…

  2. Retain existing readonly field values in SharePoint on a listitem during the copy process

    Currently SharePoint does not retain existing read-only field values on a document list item when it is replaced during the copy process (through standard context menu copy or download/upload scenario) by a document with a similar name.
    Please fix this, so read-only values are preserved and not overwritten.
    And also please preserve the internal version history of a list item during the copy process (through standard context menu copy), since currently a replace copy action effectively means that the target list item is deleted and then a new item add occurs so all the internal version history is deleted in…

  3. 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.

  4. Create a File Request

    Need an option to send a file request to external partner. I'd like to build that into a Power Automate Flow.

    Same type of functionality as in OneDrive.

  5. map network drive

    Drive mapping - again!
    Users are too wedded to mapped drives and will not work with SharePoint libraries through the browser. Many third-party applications just expect drive letters and don't work with web locations.
    With IE support being dropped, we also lose the ability to authenticate to SharePoint and establish the WebDAV connection.
    We see people mapping network drives anyway, then their session expires after a couple of weeks and we get support tickets to help them fix their drives AGAIN. Taking this away will cause carnage.
    I know Microsoft don't want people to work this way, but you must…

  6. Function to display parent folder names in document libraries

    *English follows Japanese

    ドキュメント ライブラリで親フォルダ名を表示する機能について
    Function to display parent folder names in document libraries


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリのビューの設定において "フォルダー" - "フォルダーまたはフラット形式: " - "フォルダーなしですべてのアイテムを表示する" を設定した場合、アイテムの一覧から親フォルダーの判別がつかない状況です。
    複数のフォルダーのアイテムを横断的に検索する運用を想定しておりますが、現状の機能では親フォルダー名を表示する機能がありません。
    フォルダーを表示させない環境でも親フォルダーの名前を取得し表示させる機能の実装を希望します。

    In the view settings for document libraries, if you set it to “Folder” – “Folder or Flat Format” – “Show all items without folders”, you cannot identify parent folders for the list of items.
    It can be assumed that items in multiple different folders can be searched for, but currently there is no way to display parent folder names.
    Please allow us to get parent folder names even in environments without folders.

  7. Add ability for Site Owners to download a document's viewing information enabled by Manage Site Features - SharePoint Viewers

    Currently, the information presented when you enable "SharePoint Viewers" is display only. It would be a huge benefit for Site Owners to be able to download a CSV containing 1) Viewer's Name 2) Date/Time viewed - may be multiple times 3) Time viewed (optional) 4) If edited (optional)

  8. I would like a function to hide the input contents in the version history バージョン履歴の内で入力内容を非表示にする機能を希望します  

    Currently, all the contents of the column entered in the version history screen are automatically reflected, but in order to hide it to a specific user, the input contents are optionally set to be hidden. I would like to add a function that can be done.

    現在、バージョン履歴の画面内に入力した列の内容がすべて自動的に反映される動作となっているが、特定のユーザーには見せないようにするために、任意で入力内容を非表示に設定できる機能の追加を希望します。

  9. Drag and drop *TO* Outlook email message as attachments

    There are many posts here about dragging from Outlook to SharePoint. However, if you need to attach multiple files to send via email to external recipients (links are not an option, though dragging and dropping as links would also be useful in other scenarios), this can be really cumbersome with a large doc library, partly because you cannot select and then act on multiple items, except to download them as a .zip file, which are invariably blocked or stripped by AV software. It's a multistep process today at best.

    Allowing drag-and-drop straight to an Outlook message would be a huge…

  10. Provide an option to set the default permissioning to Unique permissioning

    Even if you set the Document Library level permissions to Unique Permissioning(Stop inheritance), every time you create a new folder, it by "default" inherits the permissions of the parent folder.

  11. Make it possible to dele document set default content on sites with NoScript enabled

    It's not possible to delete default content in document sets on sites with NoScript enabled. It's possible for users to add default content on sites when NoScript is enabled. This makes it impossible to change or remove default content from document sets unless NoScript is disabled on the site.
    This effectively renders the entire document set functionality useless as default content can't be used.
    This is a bug and should be fixed.

    When you open a file uploaded to a document library from that library, that file is displayed, but if you use the absolute path (such as https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/xxx/Shared%20Documents/xxx.xlsx ), the file gets downloaded instead.
    Please make files accessed via absolute paths open in the browser too.

  14. Allow External Users to Upload Files via MS Forms

    After trying to talk to the MS Forms Team since the start of COVID-19, many users have been requesting the ability to allow external users to upload files within an MS Forms context. From my understanding that this is a technical issue with how access works within OneDrive/SharePoint that limits the ability to allow external users to upload files. This request has been in the works since April of 2017. An update in December of 2019 released the ability for internal users only. There has been no update since phase one of the feature.

    I would like to ask the…

  15. Search suggestions inconsistent with search results

    The search box in SharePoint initiates a search suggestions query with a wildcard, showing more & different documents than the actual query results shown in the document library which have been queried without a wildcard.
    This confuses endusers because in some cases they will see less results than the suggestions showed.

    A microsoft ticket has been logged already, but we were told this was by design.

    Please fix to make this consistent, preferably also making the query results query with the wildcard.

  17. Remove the "Configuration of the Document ID feature is scheduled to be completed by an automated process." warning message

    Recently created libraries show the following in RED even after configuration is complete

    "Configuration of the Document ID feature is scheduled to be completed by an automated process."

    This is visible on the "Document ID Settings" page.

    Once configuration is complete this message should be removed.

  18. Feature to surface View information in SharePoint for documents and pages

    Give an option to export or surface Views/File Statistics information of all pages/documents in a document/pages library in an SPO site. Currently this information can be accessed per each file by going to File -> Details -> Views. We'd like either a report that we can generate or the ability to add these "Views" and "Viewers" as columns in a view.

    Add a way to check file metadata size in storage volume metrics


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにファイルをアップロードすると、実際のサイズよりも大きくなるため、サイト コレクションの容量を圧迫してしまう。
    ファイル単体・バージョン管理の容量は確認可能だが、メタデータの容量の算出だけ不可なためサイト コレクションの容量管理に影響が出ている。

    記憶域メトリックスからメタデータを確認できる機能の搭載を希望いたします。

    When uploading a file to a document library, it becomes larger than it really is, which puts pressure on the site collection capacity.
    It’s possible to check how much space is used by individual files or version management, but the volume taken by metadata cannot be measured, and this has an effect on the management of site collection space.
    Please make it possible to check metadata size in the storage volume metrics.
