  3. Way to only create new versions when specific columns are changed

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    特定の列を変更した場合のみバージョンを作成する方法
    Way to only create new versions when specific columns are changed


    ■Description(内容):
    1つのドキュメントライブラリにおいて、複数の列が定義された状態で
    ある列Aのメタデータを変更した場合は、バージョン管理をする(バージョンをカウントアップ)が
    他の列Bのメタデータを変更した場合は、バージョン管理しない(バージョンそのまま)
    というような操作を希望します。
    現状ですと、どの列を変更した場合でも、バージョンがカウントアップされてしまいます。

    In a single document library, I want to be able to set it up so that with a number of defined columns, when a certain metadata item ‘A’ is changed, a version is created (the version number increases), but when metadata item ‘B’ is changed, no versions are created (the version number is unchanged).
    Currently regardless of which columns are changed the version number rises.

  4. Copy/Move from library search results

    SharePoint library Copy To and Move To feature not consistently available on a library search results. This sometimes works but it is not an actual feature according to support. In a large library, wanting to move or copy a file or folder from search results is necessary.

  6. stop document library scrolling back to top

    If we access a folder, or upload a file, the library page, it will automatically reload to the top of library. This is extremely frustrating when we have 100+ folders in the library!
    Can the library "remember" where we are working and stay "pinned" to the area we are working in.

  7. Label non-channel folders

    Similar to the label that was added to channel folders in doc libraries, add a label in NON channel folders, or minimally the ROOT folder of sites that have an MS Team, alerting users that any files uploaded to that folder will not be visible in Teams.

  8. About the title of browser tabs when you open a document library

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ドキュメント ライブラリ を開いた際のブラウザーのタブのタイトルについて
    About the title of browser tabs when you open a document library


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 SharePoint Online にて ページ開いた際は、ブラウザーのタブのタイトルには当該ページ名が表示されるが、ドキュメント ライブラリを開くと <サイト名> - <ドキュメント ライブラリ名> が表示される。
    上記動作のため、複数のタブを開くと、どのようなタブを開いているかの確認が行いづらいため、ブラウザーにて複数のタブを開いた際にどのようなタブを開いているかの確認をしやすくするよう、キュメント ライブラリを開いた際のタブのタイトルを当該ライブラリ名に等に変更する機能の拡充を要望します。

    Currently when you open a page on SharePoint Online, the title of the browser tab shows the page name, but for document libraries it shows ‘<site name> - <document library name>’.
    Because of this, if you open many tabs, it becomes difficult to tell which tabs are open, so please make it possible to change this so tabs for document libraries show the library name etc.

  11. ... document different link types and how to configure them

    I am confused about links to files and folders in SharePoint Online. Especially on their robustness in case the files or folders or any of their parents are moved or renamed. The root cause of my issue is that I am unable to find any documentation on this topic. In one site I see the following kind of links. All were taken from the “…” --> “Copy link” menu. Unique document IDs are enabled.



    1. https://domain.sharepoint.com/:w:/r/tst/dir/[some other dirs]/file.docx?d=[some long id]&csf=1&web=1&e=[some other short id]
      From a docx file


    2. https://domain.sharepoint.com/:f:/r/tst/dir/[some other dirs]/testdir?csf=1&web=1&e=[some short id]
      From a folder


    3. https://domain.sharepoint.com/:u:/r/tst/dir/[some other dirs]/email.msg?csf=1&web=1&e=[some short id]
      From…

  13. Moving folders doesn't work in sharepoint

    Moving folders doesn't work in sharepoint.

    AllItems.aspx?view=xxxxxxxx/controls/folderSelect.js isn't loading correctly. Meaning we cannot move folders cross sharepoint.

  14. 'Publish' documents - can't decide which button to use?

    We are experiencing different results when publishing documents in SharePoint. When using the "Publish" button in the SharePoint ribbon the publishing succeeds, but our users are used to right clicking the document -> More.. -> Publish. When using this right click context menu nothing happens and the document won't get published.

    Office on the Web においては条件によってファイルを開いただけでも更新時間が書き換わります。
    最終更新日時が変更されてしまうと修正有無を確認しなければいけなくなる場合があるため、自動保存の動作をオン、オフ出来る機能の実装を要望します。

    In Office on the Web, in some scenarios, just opening a file may cause the ‘modified’ date/time to be updated.
    Since it may be necessary to check if any changes were made when the ‘modified’ time/date has been changed, please make it possible to enable/disable the auto-save function.

  16. Allow "Check In Comment" column to be shown in a document library view as Multiple lines of text

    There seems to be no way to show the "Check In Comment" column (within a View of a document library in a SharePoint derived from MS Teams) as Multiple lines of text. Consequently, one can only see the first line. That is not very useful for Check In Comments that are more than a few words long.

    It would be great if the team could allow the Check In Comment as Multiple lines of text.

  17. remove the "submit for approval" button in a SharePoint document library or change its functionality

    Having the "submit for approval" button in document libraries is very confusing if you actually need to start a flow for approval (which is a different button having nothing with "approve" in its title).
    Please provide a setting to either change the linked function (e.g. link it with a flow) of this button or to remove it at all.

  18. I want to download all grouped items set as “Second priority column” at once

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    グループ化したアイテムを "2 番目に優先する列" に設定したアイテムを含めて一括でダウンロードしたい
    I want to download all grouped items set as “Second priority column” at once


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにて、"2 番目に優先する列" まで設定してグループ化した場合、"最優先する列" に設定したグループのみを展開し、チェック ボックス をオンにしても、画面上部のメニューが消えて一括ダウンロードができない。
    "2 番目に優先する列" に設定したカテゴリをすべて展開、もしくは展開後折り畳みをするとダウンロードができる。
    "2 番目に優先する列" を展開することなく 一括でダウンロードする方法を希望します。

    In document libraries, if you set grouped items as far as a “Second priority column”, only the group set as “Highest priority column” is expanded, and even if you check the box the menu at the top of the screen disappears and it cannot be downloaded.
    It possible to expand all categories set as “Second priority column”, or to expand and then collapse…

  19. sync numerous sharepoint sites at once

    If one drive needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled then all the synced SharePoint sites are no longer synced. Currently to resync you have to sync each site again which can take a long time if you have 100's of sites. Is there a way to sync sites automatically to one drive?

  20. 'Edit Columns' option has been removed from the details pane on the library form

    I have raised a ticket for this issue but I have been informed that it has been removed ?

    Can we have it back please ?

    Is this related to the rollout of MC227452 ?
