  1. Add Solar Hijri calendar

    It would be great if we can use Solar Hijri calendar in SP without depending (expense and support) on 3rd parties.

  5. Graph SharePoint list data

    I use sharepoint lists data in combination with Tableau and Power BI to give graphs. SharePoint 365 you can only use Excel and it's not live and can't auto refresh. Having the ability to get graphs and pivot graphs onto a sharepoint page from a list would be an awesome feauture.

  6. Only display "Shared with external users" when it is actually shared

    The new modern library view always says "Shared with external users" even if the permissions are internal use only - it's picking up the site collection global settings. This new message is generating lots of support calls and concern from our users who think their private libraries are suddenly accessible externally. It should only say this if either the library or a document within is actually shared with a non-Office 365 native user

  7. SharePoint Online Calendar, the “All Day Event” in Quick View is locked

    Unlock the "All Day Event" field in Quick View so entries can quickly be updated. We have multiple "Time Off Calendars" for various departments. We workload groups move, data is copied from one calendar to another but the "All Day Event" data does not copy over. If the "All Day Event" is not selected the Weekly Calendar view displays multiple vertical lines instead of names. To correct, each individual entry must be opened, the "all day event" selected and saved. This is very time consuming (typically 100+ entries) but necessary for the weekly calendar to display accurate date.

  10. Direct link to document

    Give the ability to retrieve a direct link to a file like was shown in the callout. If you want to use a html/txt file as source in a Content Editor webpart, you have to manually type the url because the generated links using Get a Link won't work.

  11. Re-establish Content Type for list items PLEASE

    What's happening? The Content Type drop-down menu suddenly disappeared from the NEW Item list dialog box! If we EDIT an item in Dialog box mode, the content type drop-down is available. My new client is VERY unhappy about being inable to select a content type (one of 11) to enter new data.

  12. Please have all columns types compatible with Calculated and validation

    Actually, only few columns types are usable by Calculated columns and Columns Validation. It would be EXTREMELY convenient if we could use:
    -Lookups (text)
    -Lookups(ID)
    -Managed Metadata (Text)
    -Managed Metadata (Term-ID)
    -Multiple lines of text
    -Item ID (current Item)
    -Document Name (current Document)
    -Yes/No (check box)

    It would be also great if there was an option to format calculated column as HTML (for now only text, date, number)

  13. No Search Bars

    This new view does not have the search bars. We have spent a lot of time teaching our staff to use the search bars. (There used to be two: one to search for files within current folder and one to search the entire site.) Please give them back!!!

  14. Add customization possibility to the new SharePoint Home page

    Based on the new feature being now rolled out at large: https://blogs.office.com/2016/05/04/sharepoint-the-mobile-and-intelligent-intranet/

    The new SharePoint Home page (landing page) is cool and we really appreciate the new look and feel.

    The only issue is that we can not customize that Home page and place the different items based on our priority!
    Based on what we have now:

    Links
    Followed Sites
    Recents
    Suggested

    It would be very interesting if we could place the LINKS on the right followed by the Followed sites!

    Then we would have the Recents and Suggested sites on the left menu.

    Basically being able to move parts…

  15. Bring Document Information Panel Back

    Bring back the Document Information Panel in Office 2016! Having SP properties mixed in with the standard document properties (author, modified date, etc.) is very inefficient. Users will opt to not fill in any properties instead of looking through all the properties presented and having to search for custom SharePoint properties. This is a huge step back.

  16. Quick Check-In/Out

  17. Missing ribbon menu, missing functions

    Where's the menu (ribbon) in the new look? Without menu there're many IMPORTANT functions missing.

    Please find a way to put back full functions. Otherwise the SharePoint is NOT USABLE in a real business environment.

  19. Encourage sharing w groups

    We typically discourage site owners from sharing at the document level due to the increase in administrative work that it causes. We also discourage owners from inviting individuals - we suggest that inviting groups makes the work simpler. However, the interface when sharing a document doesn't encourage sharing with groups - doesn't even make it obvious that sharing with groups is possible there. Are we wrong in how we are encouraging our site owners to manage their sites? If not, can it be made more obvious that sharing with groups is the best practice?

  20. Download Multiples

    'Copy To' feature should allow user to select and save multiples to desktop or any computer location. Why can I only download one at a time, but I can upload multiples? It should allow drag/drop of multiples either direction, especially since Open with Explorer option is no longer available.
