  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. When uploading duplicate data to a SharePoint Online site, I want the function to upload only the difference

    現時点では、SharePoint Online サイトに重複するデータをアップロードする際に、差分のみアップロードする機能の提供には至っていない。
    SharePoint Online サイトに重複するデータをアップロードする際に、差分のみアップロードする機能があれば運用を行ううえで便利なため、差分のデータのみアップロードする機能を要望します。

    At the moment, when uploading duplicate data to the SharePoint Online site, the function to upload only the difference has not been provided.
    When uploading duplicate data to the SharePoint Online site, it is convenient to operate if there is a function to upload only the difference, so we request the function to upload only the difference data.

  7. Access the stock images as a standalone image library and not just through the image webpart/adding an image to a page.

    To browse stock images, you have to go through the image webpart or by adding an image to a page.

    Please make it possible to view the stock images as a library in its own right, from which you can download images directly or grab a link to that image to share with others.

  8. Determination of file language

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイルの言語判定について
    Determination of file language


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードしたファイルについて、日本語のファイルか、日本語以外の言語のファイルかの言語判定が、曖昧な動作をしているように思える。同じ操作で同じ内容で作成したファイルでも言語判定がわかれることがあるので、動作の精度を上げて欲しいのと、判定の基準のようなものがあれば公開して欲しい。

    When files are uploaded to document libraries, files which are in Japanese are incorrectly identified as being in other languages, with no clear reason. There are cases where files with the same content created in the same way are determined to be in different languages, so please improve this function, and publish information about how the determination of file languages functions.

  9. Keep encoded URLs in case of discarding check out

    Similar to SharePointOnline, encoded URLs should be kept when users discard check out at a page of document libraries in SharePointServer 2013, 2016 and 2019.
    This function will make it possible to enhance SharePoint usability because encoded URLs are kept in check out, check in, save, restore from version history.

  10. Block download of files with edit access.

    It seems you can only block download for read-only files. We need to be able block download for files with edit access for added security.

  12. Regarding behavior when opening a PDF file stored in a modern UI document library

    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリに格納している PDF ファイルをクリックするとモダン UI のプレビュー表示で PDF ファイルが開き、その場合だと PDF ファイルの 「しおり」 機能が利用できない。しかしながら、[開く] から [ブラウザーで開く] で PDF ファイルを表示すると 「しおり」 機能が利用できるため、プレビュー表示では 「しおり」 機能が利用できない状況となります。そのため、モダン UI のドキュメント ライブラリに格納された PDF ファイルを開く際に直接ブラウザーで開く動作にするか、プレビュー表示の際もブラウザーで開く場合と同様に 「しおり」 機能が利用できるように機能の拡充を要望します。

    Clicking a PDF file stored in the document library of the modern UI opens a PDF file in the preview display of the modern UI, in which case the "bookmark" function of the PDF file is not available.

    However, when you display a PDF file…

  13. Adjust modern Manage access panel for better overview

    When assigning permissions directly to document library, the sorting of the user list in Manage Access panel is confusing. First the sitecollection admins are displayed, which is hidden in classic view. The business owner of the site usually doesn´t know this person (technical admin), lose confidence in system and is trying to remove it from list. When switching to classic view via "Advanced" the user is not displayed in the list.
    Please adjust the listing in modern "Manage access" according to classic approach.

    ドキュメント ライブラリでアイテムの閲覧数を確認したいが、現在確認可能な "閲覧数" 、"閲覧者" の情報は短期間のうちに同一ユーザーがアクセスした場合にカウントされない場合があり、正確な情報を集計できない。

    I want to check the number of views made to items in document libraries, but currently the “View count” and “Viewed by” information does not count multiple accesses made by the same user in a short time, so does not show correct totals.
    Please add a way to check total numbers of accesses by users to items in document libraries and lists.

  16. 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.

  17. 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,…

    Improvements to behavior when opening Office files in the desktop app is set as the default option in classic UI libraries


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では、既定でクライアント アプリケーションで Office ファイルが起動するように設定していても Internet Explorer 以外のブラウザーを使用するとブラウザーで表示されてしまうため、他のブラウザーを使用している場合も既定でクライアント アプリケーションにてファイルが開くように動作の改善を要望します。

    At present, even if you set Office files to open by default in the client app, they open in the browser window if you are using browsers other than Internet Explorer. Please change this so that files can be set to open by default in the client app when using other browsers.

  19. 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".
