  1. Save the data: SharePoint Online forms(dialog) customized with PowerApps

    Japanese follows English.

    Improvement on Sharepoint Online with PowerApps will contribute to many users as follows:

    We have customized a Custom list item view / edit screen of SPO(SharePointOnline) with PowerApps.

    (Normal behavior)
    Clicking item of "title hyperlink" from default list view, a customized dialog window comes up front.
    I change it to "edit mode" and can edit the item in the dialog window.

    (To be improved)
    However, when I click on the parent (list view) window behind the dialog, the dialog closes unexpectedly and the data I have edited disappear sadly without saved.
    (I need to re-open the dialog…

  2. Flow Stop sharing a SharePoint folder

    I would like the ability to use Microsoft flow to manage SharePoint folders permissions (Permission list: Full Control | Edit | View) for the following entities users, security groups and Office 365 groups (Operations: Add | Remove | Modify)

    As of today 20191113, the tech article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#stop-sharing-an-item-or-a-folder) says it provide this functionality, yet by testing and through MS support it does not work. This is folder operation in specific and not an item or file

  3. Power Automate "Update Item" step for SharePoint should not automatically apply column default values to existing list items

    The "Update Item" step automatically retrieves the default value for SharePoint list columns that have default values specified and incorporates them into the step. This can corrupt a list by unintentionally overwriting values that already exist in those columns. It is a highly counter-intuitive behavior for two reasons: 1. it does not make sense to apply default values to existing list items, which may already have different values specified; and 2. the "Update Item" step does not otherwise automatically apply values to columns that do not have default values. In my opinion, "Update Item" should not make changes to fields/columns…

  4. 100% Height of PowerApps custom form in SharePoint

    Hi, can you please allow for dynamic height adjustment of PowerApps forms in SharePoint to 100%. At the moment it is a fixed size which creates a scroll bar, and on larger screen resolutions it does not work effectively, especially if there are lots of fields to fill in.

    I have edited the HTML code in the browser debugger, and could get it to be 100% height, so I know it is possible, and looks much more professional.

    Thank you for your time.

  6. Simpler Flow for SharePoint Calendar

    Please make the out of the box SharePoint Calendar a recognized list in Flow and make it simpler to set up an Approval Flow on a calendar.

    As it stands now, you have to create a request list or MS Form to route to an approver and then when the item is approved, update the Calendar list. You should be able to do this in one step by setting up a flow on the Calendar list itself.

  7. Ability to run Flow from library/list webpart

    It is possible to add custom buttons to run flows against documents and list items - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/column-formatting#create-a-button-to-launch-a-flow

    However this only works when the user is in the library or list. If you're on a page and have a library/list web part the flow button is visible but does nothing when clicked. There's also none of the OOB options to run flows associated with the library/list when viewing them via the web part.

    It would be really useful if this functionality was added as most of our libraries and lists are presented via pages on our SharePoint environment.

  9. Please provide Flow connection for creating/copying list to new list in sharepoint,and provide "Save list as a template" Flow connection.

    Now we can't create/copy sharepoint list in MS Flow, because there is no this connection. So if we can't create list according to year number in Flow. And because there isn't "Save list as a template" function in sharepoint online, so we can't do this work manually.

  10. Restrict access to powerapps

    Powerapps is positioned as a frontend for sharepoint. A major feature of frontends is providing data validation and security. Sharepoint cannot be configured to only allow access via a powerapp. This makes powerapps effectively useless for a lot of workflows because sharepoint advertises direct data access to each person with access to the powerapp, and thus a simple bypass to the power app.

    Currently if a PowerApps custom form is applied to custom lists, the same custom form will be applied when creating, editing and viewing an item.
    To enhance the convenience for each operation, we would like to select a different custom form when creating/editing and viewing items, or have an option added to select a default form.

  12. About SendError for workflows

    About SendError for workflows


    ■Description(内容):
    2月ごろから、ワークフローの送信サーバーがブロックされてメールが送信エラーになる。
    サーバー側で 該当 IP アドレスのブロックを解除することで改善するが、IP アドレスのブロックを事前に回避する方法、もしくはユーザー側で IP アドレスを確認してブロックを解除する方法を実装してほしい
    Since February, it has shown SendError in sending e-mails because the outgoing server for workflows is blocked.
    We can fix this SendError by unblocking a specific IP address on the server side, but in the future, I hope you to implement either way, that is, to avoid blocking the IP address beforehand or to check and unblock the IP address on the user side.

  13. Notification feature when workflow related problems happen

    Currently SharePoint Online workflow does not give an alert or notification to administrators in case of abnormal failure or process delay etc. We find these problems later and this would give us negative impact on our business.
    It would be great you could implement a notification feature for administrators if workflow related problems would happen. This feature could help us to reduce our business loss and improve SPO efficiency.

  16. Allow users to start a Flow when they have read-only access to a list

    Users need a minimum of Contributor access to a list to trigger a Flow. Flow has its own run-only users list, so why do SP permissions have anything to do with it? It seems they only need this access to be able to trigger Flow, not because they actually need to edit the list.

    The work around - give users contribute but remove it using item-level permissions, is horrible and gives the users a quick edit button that won't work.

  17. Default code on Update event of DataCard can be improved

    The following operation differences occur when customizing with the PowerApps Integration, which is troublesome.


    1. Fill in the choices, dates, lookup columns, user and group columns and save them in a custom list.

    2. Recall the saved data, clear the input contents and save again.

    3. When the saved data is called again, it does not disappear and the previous value remains.Actually data remains in the custom list.

    Based on the information on the following site,

    https://powerapps.microsoft.com/ja-jp/blog/new-feature-error-handling-and-writing-null-values-to-databases/
    New Experimental Feature: Error Handling and Writing Null values ​​to databases

    And by updating the Update event of…

  18. Global data value replacements during save as function

    As we start to developing power Automate flows it is immediately evident that the process is cumbersome & ripe for errors. This is because the templating workflow process currently copies 100% of the workflow. Then you have to find and manually update every occurrence in each step for site address and library name. Generating templates would be so much quicker and safer if we could globally replace site address, library name, and even notification recipients, etc.

  19. automation around "send to"

    It would be great if we could programmatically work with the "Send To" function that is available in Classic document libraries.

    I'd like to be able to add a Power Automate Flow, that provides "Send To" like functionality, to Modern document libraries.
    Potentially with a Power App initiator, to gather additional metadata at the start, rather than waiting for someone to pick it up from the Drop Off document library.
