  1. Allow Site Pages Templates to be Read Only to Members

    The Site Pages Templates feature is useful. However, if you set any of the templates in the Site Pages\Templates folder to be read-only for a user they no longer see that template available on the +New menu when trying to create a new page such as a News Post.

    Many of our users are modifying these templates when we don't want them to be able to.

    We raised a premier support ticket with Microsoft and they reproduced this behaviour and advised that users must have contribute access to a template to be able to create page based on that template.…

  2. We hope that the "500 GB + 0.5 x number of users" Stream capacity provided by default in Stream (classic) will be replenished as SharePoint

    When migrated to Stream (SharePoint), videos that you have a meeting in the Teams team tab or videos that you want to share with Microsoft 365 groups are stored in the SharePoint library, which actually consumes SharePoint space.
    I would like you to continue to provide the "500 GB + 0.5 x number of users" capacity that was previously provided for Stream. 

    Stream (SharePoint) に移行された場合、Teams のチームタブで会議をした動画や Microsoft 365 グループで共有したい動画はSharePoint のライブラリに保存するため、実質 SharePoint の領域を消費することになる。
    今まで Stream に対して提供されていた "500 GB + 0.5 × ユーザー数" の容量を今まで通り提供されることを希望します。

  3. Event web part date range doesn't work

  6. Immersive Reader should be accessible via keyboard

    The new Immersive Reader function could be extremely useful accessibility feature for many people, unfortunately it's not currently accessible to all.

    To make sure that people that use keyboards to navigate sites can access the Immersive Reader it should appear in the correct location in the tab order. Currently there is no way to reach the Immersive Reader button using your keyboard using tab alone.

    Currently it seems you can access it when using arrow keys as well but it's not intuitive as to when you need to use arrow keys or tab due to the fact the tab selectable…

  7. "move to" function can not be enabled if a user's permission level with out "delete"

    if a permission level "delete" is not checked, the user with this permission level cannot use Move to function.

    I know "Move"means delete sth in one place and copy it to another place. But this cannot avoid user delete sth by mistake

  8. Customize bulk edit form for list items

    I'm using custom forms for some of the lists on a sharepoint site I manage, but I'd really like a way to customize the header for the form differently when it is being used in bulk edit mode.

    Please can we have a property detectable in JSON (@editMode or something) that could be used to control form header or body formatting for bulk edit situations

  13. Make Document Library menu options configurable and more user friendly


    1. Prompt for check-in/check-out and metadata properties, whenever new/existing docs are uploaded on document library as of SP2010, so that user don’t have to manually go to menu options for check-in/check-out and metadata properties.


    2. Make list/library menu items configurable, so that one can configure the most commonly used option to display on top without clicking on three dots.

    I need replace files. But sharepoint ask me for each file.

  16. SharePoint - Recycle Bin Requires export/restore will ask us same or different location

    Recycle Bin requires few more option like
    -Export to excel
    -While restore list item/files should ask us to restore in same location or other, if other it should copy the same structure of list item/files and place those deleted items.

    Because some time we need to report to Management/Audit deleted information. If we have done the unique columns this will be an issue or do workarounds.

  18. Create a way to better identify shortcuts on OneDrive

    Shortcut file names do not provide enough information when you can't see what folder they came from. We should be able to rename the shortcut, or add a label to it, or put it in our own OneDrive subfolder so that we have some way of remembering what exactly what the shortcut is. (For example. there could be 10 shortcut files called "finance" that are all for different teams. There's no way to do anything to differentiate them when they are added as shortcuts to OneDrive.

  20. Calculate Expiration Date of File based on Retention Label
