  1. 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.

  2. Pin Documents that aren't in Recent

    Currently in order to Pin a document to your portal it needs to be in your Recent documents. We should be able to pin any document from any library.

  3. Settings to change the default document view display for the entire organization or all sites

    Settings to change the default document view display for the entire organization or all sites.

    Default views can be set for each site, but settings that can be applied to all sites are also required.

    If there are many sites, it can be very troublesome to change each one.

  4. Regarding the behaviour of opening Office files in Classic UI

    ■Title(件名):
    クラシック UI で Office ファイルを開いた際の動作について
    Regarding the behaviour of opening Office files in Classic UI


    ■Description(内容):
    ライブラリの設定で、"ブラウザーで開くドキュメント設定" を "クライアント アプリケーションで開く " にした場合でも、Office ファイルをクリックした際に Gogole Chrome、FireFox、 Chromium ベースの新しい Edge のブラウザー利用時に Office Online で開く動作になる。
    "クライアント アプリケーションで開く "​ の機能が適用されるように機能改善を希望します。
    Even when "Settings for opening documents in browser" in library settings is set to "Open using client application", when we click on Office files the files will be opened using Office Online if Google Chrome, Firefox or the new Chromium-based Edge browsers are being used.
    Please improve this so that the "Open using client application" setting can be applied.

  5. Document permissions by meta data

    Allow setting document library permissions by a meta data field in addition to folder and file-specific options.

    I have a large document library where files have a type and are associated by a project. I would like to be able to give specific permissions so a project team could have permissions to all files associated with their project, and another team can see all the files of a certain type because we like to share summary information with wider team.

  6. SharePoint - Importing Excel Data Table to SharePoint list with views

    The company I work with uses SharePoint online and we have been able to import the Excel data table to a SharePoint site as its own web app. This does allow us to more easily show that data. However, one thing that is a slow process is creating different methods to view the data. By default, we create three different views. My suggestion, is during the import process, ask if we want to make custom views.

  7. 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…

  8. Implement a feature to obtain the document library list

    It would be great if SPO could output the list which includes the number of all document libraries’ items in the site. If this feature is available as the SPO standard feature, it would be helpful to improve convenience.

  9. Create new document from a content type should default saving location into the current document library

    the default save location document library based on content type should be always the document library (not my personal OneDrive)
    this behavior is ok if you open the document with Office online, but once you set the document library settings to "Open in the client application", the default location becomes your "personal OneDrive" which is not desirable

  10. Prompt or Redirect Video Uploads to Stream

    When a video is uploaded to a SharePoint document library, either have a dialog box prompting them to save in Stream (especially if there is not an existing Stream Group connected to the site) or automatically upload to the connected Stream Group.

  11. 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".

    In Custom List, we can set the “Item-level Permissions” in [List settings] – [Advanced settings] to make it so that only the user who created the item can edit it. However, in Document and Page libraries, such a setting does not exist, and it is not possible to make a setting where only the user who created the item can edit it. Therefore, I would request for better…

  14. After document move to a different site updating doc id prefix changes doc id

    I tested the following:


    • Move a document to a different sharepoint site with doc id service turned on

    • Navigate to settings and assign a new prefix for document ids

    • Tick the box that states "Reset all Document IDs in this Site Collection to begin with these characters."

    • Click Ok

    • After prefix is updated the document now has new document id ( no, not just the prefix, but the other portion )

    Please stop a document's id from changing!

  15. Block downloading files in a document library while keep the printing feature

    It would be great if we can block downloading any files. But we want to keep the printing feature for files. Currently we can block downloading exclusively for Office files, so it’ll be great if this function could support other files.

  18. 保存するバージョンの数を既定値 500 ではなく他の数値に最初から保存したい I want to save the number of versions to be saved from the beginning to a different number instead

    バージョン履歴の既定値を変更する方法を教えてもらいましたが、ドキュメント ライブラリを作成するたびに値を 500 から変更するのは煩わしいので、既定で他の数値に変更しておける方法を実装してほしいです。

    I was told how to change the default value of the version history, but it is cumbersome to change the value from 500 every time you create a document library, so implement a method that can change it to another number by default. I want.

  19. Option to select item in document library list from activity stream

    Currently, clicking a document link in the Activity Stream in the info pane opens the document. My most common use case is to find the document in the library to update metadata or otherwise manage the document without needing to open it to view or edit. Please add the option to simply select the document from the Activity Stream without opening it, so that the document metadata is then shown in the pane and document management actions (check out, approve etc) are available.
