  1. Enable renaming the site collection URLs

    Currently the site collection URLs are fixed as https://tenant.sharepoint.com and cannot be changed. This does not fit with flexible cloud-based solutions - business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, rebranding etc). While it may not be possible to change it so that entirely custom domains are used (eg contoso.com, instead of sharepoint.com), it must be possible to allow the sub-domain to be changed (eg. newtenant.sharepoint.com)? Please?

    Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, Sharepoint and Onedrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.

    Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. We plan to increase availability to this feature throughout 2019.

    Corporate lifecycle is a real and constant pressure in business, often resulting in a need to rename the Office 365 Tenant. To that end we are working on the solution to change the SharePoint domain URL (contoso.sharepoint.com renamed to fabrikam.sharepoint.com). This capability will also then enable the renaming of an individual site collection (contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/abc to contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/xyz).

    While we don’t have an estimated delivery date to share at this time, we’ll update your suggestion with details as they become available.

  2. Make rename in Teams reflect name changes in Sharepoint?

    When I rename a folder in the Teams app, the underlying folder is not renamed in sharepoint. This is most confusing.

  3. Open Adobe PDF in client application

    Office 365 / SharePoint online needs to support opening PDF documents in SharePoint directly to client application (Adobe Acrobat Pro/DC).

    As of this request, technical support has stated the only way to open PDF files in Acrobat is to download/save them.

    SharePoint On Premise has supported this feature for some time.

    Adobe PDF files are as common and Microsoft Office Suite documents and must be editable directly to/from SharePoint Online without the need to down/save edit, and upload which adds user overhead and lowers productivity.

  4. Remove the list view threshold (5000 by default)

    This limit has always been a bit laughable, and is even more so as we develop more client side applications. In SharePoint 2007 we didn't have this limit and were allowed to make our own mistakes. Now that hardware is so much more powerful, we need this limit removed so that we can build enterprise-class applications.

    We are continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

    Spring 2018 update:
    - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
    - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

    What we are working on now:
    - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

    In our backlog:
    - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
    - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

  5. Please let me drag Outlook attachments into SharePoint

    Something I find myself wanting to do pretty frequently is storing an email attachment somewhere into SharePoint or OneDrive for Business. I want to simply drag the attachment from Outlook directly into SharePoint or OneDrive in the browser. Alas, I cannot. I am forced to save the attachment somewhere (my Desktop, most likely) then either drag+dropping it into SharePoint/OneDrive or using the upload function in SharePoint/OneDrive to get it uploaded.

    It should be easier than that. Microsoft, please consider adding this functionality to get even more user-friendly integration between your suite of products.

  6. Stop opening links in new tab in modern pages

    Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.

    It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.

    Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.

    As of March 2019, this feature should be available to 50% of users in Targeted Release. The rollout to all users is continuing, but there are several features included together in this one and we’ve paused the rollout a few times to accomodate changes based on feedback to the other features. New ETA for reaching all users is April 2019.

    Note this feature will only apply to modern doclib and list UX in SharePoint Online

  9. Set "Communication Site" as Root site collection

    For organisations that would like to use Communication site as their intranet it would be great if you could provision the root site as a Communication site, rather than a team site with a redirect to the communication site.

    There is a workaround as mentioned here but i'd prefer a Microsoft supported method https://hangconsult.com/2017/06/29/change-sharepoint-online-root-site-collection-to-use-the-new-communication-site-template/

  11. Bring Back Script Editor Web Part in "Modern" SharePoint

    The Script Editor Web Part has been replaced by the Content Editor (which does a very limited iframe) and the new SPFX stuff. I am not a developer, but knowledgeable in HTML, Javascript, CSS. The SEWP met some very complex use cases (targeted for replacement by SPFX), but also some very simple use cases.

    Example: Insert a formatted single HTML button, something that is big, draws attention, and encourages the user to click it to start an action.

    What might be just 2 lines of code, has now turned into (what looks like) hundreds of files of deployment, installing all…

  13. Title Banner on Modern Pages

    Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.

  14. Enable Audience targeting on modern page web parts

    It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages. Thanks

  15. Restore "Sign in as a different user"

    This is essential and needs to be easy to find instead of hacking the URL every time you need to sign in as a different user.

  16. Make the Delve organization chart available as a web part in regular sites.

    The current "organization browser" web part :
    The html view is just a list = not worth the time
    You need silverlight to get a visual presentation but:
    -nobody uses silverlight
    -silverlight isn't compatible with modern browsers (because no one uses it)
    The silverlight rendition in IE is appallingly ugly and isn't responsive.

    To have a functional attractive org chart seems like a no brainer for a service that claims to be "enterprise" ready. It's already built in Deleve so just make it available as a web part.

  17. Provide an option to disable the "Share" button.

    The Share button breaks inheritance on an item, and without warning to the user. With the default Permission Level of "Edit" in Team Sites, you can quickly have 100's or 1000's of items with unique permissions. Going forward, any permissions granted at the library or site level can create a situation where new users will see all of the content in a library, except for those with unique permissions.

    I would like to be able to disable (hide) the Share buttons at various tiers such as library, site, site collection or web application/tenant.

  19. Multilingual Communication Sites

    Including support would be needed.

    My client has a legal requirement for using software, intranets that is Bi-Lingual.

    Communication sites are really great way to building new Intranets quickly but this is a critical feature for adoption.

    This is an often used function, and the workaround to set the list back to classic will only be a temporary solution.

    As of March 2019 this feature is available to all users of the list/library webparts on modern publishing pages, and to 50% of First Release users in the full page lists/library app. We are continuing to roll this out to all users, but it’s part of a collection of other features, and we have paused rollout a few times to address requests and changes in those other features.

    Note this feature is available only in SharePoint Online
