  2. Month view for calendar on the page

    We would like the calendar display apps (events and group calendar) to allow a "month" view. We love the events parts and like that they link to a group calendar but would love to visualize this in a month or week format

  4. Modern calendars

    Modern pages, lists and libraries look great and all fit together nicely.

    The other main thing we use here is the calendars which are still looking classic, which means inconsistencies in the quick links layout as well as other things which viewing a calendar.

    I can't find anything about when Calendars are going to be modernized.

    Hopefully soon!

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion and voting on it. We have two events/calendar solutions in modern pages today. The events web part has card based event tiles, powered by events lists. You can roll-up events from multiple sites into one page, but there isn’t currently a wall calendar view.

    Alternatively you can select to leverage a group calendar, and pull all of your events (including recurring events) from Exchange. This too is a compact card based view.

    While we understand a wall calendar view is desirable, we’re not working on it at this time.

  5. Please provide option to customize email templates

    Please provide option to customize email templates used to send notifications out of SharePoint online like "Send by Email" feature on modern UI pages, sharing notifications to other users. Most organizations do not allow users to install mobile apps. Providing information that is not approved will confuse the users and require constant training.

  6. Ability for administrators to disable office online chat

    We have shared class notebooks setup enabling classes of 30+ students free range to chat to each other. As you can imagine teachers are finding this hard to manage, especially when they're off task inside of a program where work is also taking place; making it incredibly easy for the sneaky students to hide their off topic discussions!

    Furthermore the chat logs are not saved anywhere - this really does open up a host of child protection issues where cyber bullying could take place within the school without any logs of it ever happening.

  7. Branding sharing email invitation

    It would be great to do some branding on the sharing invitation e-mail message. For example replacing the Office 365 logo with your company logo and changing the color scheme.

  8. SharePoint 2013 workflow email to distribution list

    I found out after contacting Microsoft Support that you are not able to use the "Send Email" action in SharePoint 2013 Designer to send the email to a distribution list (group type of distribution or security). In order to send an email in a SharePoint workflow to a distribution list (allmanagers@company.com), you have to use a SharePoint 2010 workflow.

    I was informed that SharePoint 2013 workflows can only send emails to organization users.

    Please allow the ability to send to a distribution list within the GAL/org. This is a very common request so changes in recipients do not…

  9. Better site usage analytics

    There should be more robust analytics on site usage. What is available now is very limited. For example, I can see total page views in the past 7 days, and the trending section for most viewed pages over the past two weeks, but in the trending section it just shows the blue bar, I can't even hover to get a number of page visits. Overall, improvement is needed in the area of site usage metrics.

  10. expire external user access

    Similar to the ability to expire a guest link, it would be nice to have the ability to expire external users (in the Admin portal where you see external users listed per site collection?). When the authorized internal user invite an external user (outside organization), please offer a control to allow for the expiration of access (e.g. 7 days, 1 month, "custom" or hard date like June 30, 2016). This takes away follow-up administration, especially handy for invite clients to your portal for only the timeframe of a project.

  11. Calendar Events and Meetings categories and colors

    It would be great to have the ability to select categories an colors where creating events and meetings, visible as well in the calendar view (calendar.aspx) and in Outlook (2016 or 365).

  12. Reliable presence information in SharePoint Online

    Currently SharePoint Online getting presence information from local Skype for Business client. It would be great it actually talks to Lync Online at the background (similar to OWA) so that users can see presence information regardless of they are logged into Skype or not. Furthermore, presence information does not work on Chrome, due to the same reason, this gives an inconsistent experience across browsers and can benefit from improvement.

  13. add the feature that could enable for me to jump to another page.

    I am currently inserting the [table] into a page, but am unable to reach the targeted page without several scrolls because of the longer table in longitudinal direction with the increased numbers. I am aware that I might be able to move to the anchor with the edited source tagged to HTML, but I hope the defaulted feature to be available that could enable for me to jump within a page, instead of inserting a HTML tag.

  14. Improve the search behavior to display the user name containing the double-byte characters as input candidates.

    ■Title(件名):ユーザー名の検索について

    Improve the search behavior to display the user name containing the double-byte characters as input candidates.

    ■Description_JP (内容):[ユーザーまたはグループ] 列でユーザー名を入力した際に、漢字 2 文字を入力した段階で入力候補として表示されるようにしてほしい。

    In case of making a search for user name with [User or Group] column, I hope the search behavior will be improved to display the name containing the two double-byte characters when entering them into its column as input candidates.

  15. Support inviting external users to multiple SharePoint security groups

    It appears that when you add an external user to a site collection security group in SharePoint Online and then add them to another security group in the same site collection, if the user hasn't accepted the invite yet then they will only be granted permissions to the second security group.

    For example, if I create a new site collection and I add an external user to the Visitors group then an invite email is sent to the user. If I then add that same user to a second security group and the user hasn't yet accepted my invite, then…

  16. Change the default language after the SharePoint site has been created

    Though we can change the language settings, but once the site has been created there is no option to change its default language.

  19. PDF's to open in Adobe Acrobat

    When opening PDF's there needs to be an option to open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat rather than just in the browser. Opening in browser is OK for reading PDF's but if you want to work with them properly, you really need to be able to use Adobe.

  20. OneNote versioning and disabling sync to local app.

    Allow versioning for OneNote Online. (If this is available in some back end admin setting, why does it apply to a Word document for instance, but not OneNote? When you right click on the Word doc, you get versions, if you right click on the OneNote notebook, you do not) Also, to have some option somewhere to not allow a local sync of the online OneNote notebook. So if the user opens the notebook in their local pc app (Windows 10 OneNote app, or OneNote 2016 full install from Office version) they only have a read only version.
