  2. I want a function to view totals of detailed access counts to document libraries and lists

    ドキュメント ライブラリやリストにてアクセス数の詳細を集計する機能が欲しい。
    I want a function to view totals of detailed access counts to document libraries and lists


    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。
    ドキュメント ライブラリやリストの機能としてアイテムヘのアクセス数やアクセスしたユーザーを集計する機能の拡充を要望します。

    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.

  3. Restrict the number of folders a user can create in SharePoint.

    Currently there is no option to restrict the number of folders a user can create in SharePoint. We could only either disable the option on to the library. It would be beneficial if we could allow the folder creation with some restrictions on number of folders.

  4. Upload document revision - Retain link

    Please enable a feature to upload a new revision / replace a document in a SharePoint / OneDrive library to a new version without losing existing links to it.

    I am streamlining the companies document library, currently we have multiple versions of the same document uploaded to various websites and in a library for internal use. I wish to create one true source to reduce maintenance errors when applying updates. I wish to use a cloud service to host the library, have it accessible through a mobile app and use links to the documents on ours and 3rd party websites.

  5. The number in excel survey not shown correctly

    We created an excel survey, with the ID card number question set as TEXT format. After sharing, the inputted number is shown as scientific notation, not the original long number. Hope to improve the shown format of the long number.

  7. Sharepoint needs the ability to share without requiring sign-in across all interfaces

    I understand that I can use the Documents menu to share without sign-in, but the native Sharepoint folder view/Share option with 'Require sign-in' does not behave as expected, the recipient is still prompted to sign in (and create a Microsoft account if they don't have one)

  8. Warn users that replacing a SharePoint file is NOT the same as adding a new version

    Summary: Warn users that when you replace a file on SharePoint, you are NOT adding a new version. All your version history will be lost.

    Context: I had a user who was having an issue saving a document on SharePoint, so they saved a copy to their OneDrive so preserve the changes.

    They then tried moving that file to SharePoint. When it replaced the existing file, it overwrote the file, losing all of the version history.

    I was asked to raise this issue here by Microsoft, so they could review the details.

    The problem: Microsoft told me that when you…

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

    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…

    In the Excel app, I can use the page change preview feature to change the print area. But, Excel for the Web doesn't currently implement page change preview and print area changes, so we're here to expand it.

  11. Allow creation of new plain text files in modern document libraries

    Since the Modern UX has such a great text editor built-in, it would be very helpful to be able to create new plain text files directly from the Document Library.

    Only way to do this now (short of a custom-coded or 3rd-party solution) is to upload a blank text file and reuse it (i.e. Save As...), but that method has several limitations and risks.

    It's often best to use simple text files for basic information since they are OS agnostic and can be opened/edited in nearly every platform that currently exists without additional software.

    Many times

  12. Have .eml attachment time & dates match

    When .eml files are entered into document libraries, they presently have the chance to change date and time to a different time zone. Recommend that the attachments reflect the time zone of either the computer in use, data from within the .eml itself or the document library.

  13. Open with Explorer

    The previous post located was closed. Our organization uses Internet Explorer because that is the only browser that supports Open with Explorer. Why is that? Why would Microsoft roll out a new browser without the same functionality? Everyone works directly in SharePoint - we do not want them synching to OneDrive as that has caused problems. The master set of files is in SharePoint and should always be the files used. Note that we are still using Classic sites.

  16. Ability to add comments to particular section of photo or video like what Dropbox for Business offers. This is widely used by creative teams

    Ability to add comments to particular section of photo or video like what Dropbox for Business offers. This is widely used by creative teams when collaborating on images with vendors and within teams. The feature allows you to point at a section of an image and add a comment, on videos it posts a comment with the timestamp that a reviewer can click to jump to the actual section.

  18. Show previews of the images in the document library folder

    It would be convenient if we could see preview list of the image files in the document library without opening the file each time. We currently have to open the folder to see the images.

  19. Assign drag n dropped files into Document Set default Content Type

    When you drag and drop files into a Document Set which have a custom content type assigned, the files are still assigned with the standard "Document" content type (even if it's not assigned to the Document Set). We would like to have the files assigned the content type we have defined for the Document Set.
