  1. Add a feature to enable site level metadata and default values

    A challenge to adoption and use of metadata is getting users to fill in values consistently. There are many scenarios that would benefit from being able to define a value for metadata at the site level and have that automatically push down to all documents/items in that site Examples for the type of metadata that could be set centrally are project name, IDs from ERP systems, commercial sensitivity etc - all of those would be good to filter in search refiners. Content types could deal with this, but use of content types has its own limitations which currently require custom…

  3. Be aware of the behavior the list templates are not available on Office 365 group sites.

    I assume the list templates are not available on Office 365 group sites now.

    The error has been occurred when creating a template of the questionnaire app and deploy to the site. There are many opportunities to create and operate the Office 365 group sites by public users, so that I hope the feature will be implemented that any list templates can be available for all users.

  4. Branding SharePoint 2019 On-Premise - Allow Custom themes using site design and scripts

    Currently branding the modern pages (Themes) using site design and site scripts is available in SharePoint online only and not yet supported in SharePoint 2019. Our organization is planning the portals in SP 2019 and we need brand our sites based on organization-defined color palettes. Hence, themes need to be customized. Kindly let us know your plans regarding site designs and scripts in Sharepoint 2019. It's going to be very important feature going forward. Thank you!

  5. Make Web Parts ReUsable

    It would be nice to be able to configure a Web Part once, and then reference it on different pages. This would give a central point of management to propagate a change through the many pages that the particular Web Part was used on. This could be very useful for navigation menus (a List Web Part), or "related content" sections (Highlighted Content or News Feed with a Filter).

  6. Adjust the display of text files when the theme color is changed in “Change the look”

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    外観の変更でテーマカラー変更時のテキスト ファイル表示調整機能
    Adjust the display of text files when the theme color is changed in “Change the look”


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 "外観の変更"からテーマカラーを濃い青などの暗い色に変更すると、サイトにアップロードしたテキスト ファイルまで文字を含め黒くなり、非常に見づらい状態となる。
    テーマカラー変更時にテキスト ファイル等テーマカラーに影響されてしまうファイルの表示を見やすく調整する機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, if you change the theme color to a deep blue or other dark color via “Change the look”, even text files uploaded to the site have their text in black, and this is very hard to see.
    Please add a function that changes the display of text files etc. so those affected by the theme color are easier to see.

  7. Content Types from Content Type HUB should be availabe right away when new site is created, for usage with Site Designs

    Scenario:
    A Site Design that is applied when a new site is created, should add an existing Content Type from the Content Type HUB (e.g to the Default Document library).

    Why?
    - site design is applied when new site is created, so that every site on the tenant has the same content type added
    - when needed, this content type can be modified in one central place (Content Type HUB), instead of doing it manually on every Site.

    Problem:
    The Site Design fails when creating a new site, because the contents from the Content Type HUB are not syndicated right…

  8. Activate Features in Site Designs / Site Scripts

    Allow for the activation of features (including Site Collection features) in site scripts. There is currently "activateSPFeature" in the JSON Schema but it only applies to Site (Web) features.
    With the introduction of modern document sets we will need a way to activate the Document Set Feature.

    ■Description(内容):
    MC213968 にて SharePoint Online のデフォルトカラーが青から緑に変更され、クラシック サイトの場合は GUI で外観色を緑から青に戻すことができなくなった。
    PowerShell コマンドレットの操作にて外観色を青色に戻すことは可能だが、一度その操作を行うと、サイトの外観色を緑に変更するには個別サイトごとに GUI の操作が必要になる。
    テナント全体でサイトの外観色を緑に変更することができるよう、機能の拡充を希望します。

    As per MC213968, the default color of SharePoint Online changed from blue to green, and in the case of classic sites, it became impossible to change the external color of the GUI back to blue.
    Using a PowerShell cmdlet, the color can be changed to blue, but on doing that once, it is necessary to then change each site to green in the GUI.

    Enable adjusting the width of item titles in SharePoint Online sites like Excel.


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online サイト編集時、現機能においては各アイテムにおけるタイトルの幅を調節できないため、サイトをデザインするにあたり制限がかかっている状況である。

    タイトルの文字幅のカスタマイズを可能にすることで、SharePoint Online サイトの閲覧者に対して重要な部分をアピールすることが可能になり、またサイト全体のデザインも今以上に魅力的に作成することができるようになるため、各アイテムにおけるタイトルの幅を Excel のように調節できるように機能を拡充してほしい。
    When editing SharePoint Online sites, currently we are unable to adjust the width of item titles in SharePoint Online sites, that limits to arrange the composition of site designs.
    With respect to the visual point of view, by customizing the width or title space, I can make significant parts visually approachable to viewers, that leads a better quality of site designs as well. Therefore, I hope this adjustment feature,…

  16. Cannot set groupified Team site logo with site design

    Groupified Team sites do not allow a site design to set the site logo. Apparently the Office 365 Group logo needs to be changed but this requires considerable code or manual steps for each group created. Since many Office 365 groups will be created via Teams or SharePoint Online its somewhat obvious to allow organisations to control the user experience via basic scripted branding and site designs. Please allow the setSiteLogo verb to also update the Office 365 group logo and have it propagate immediately through to Teams and the SharePoint Online team site.

  18. Improve the Templates feature to allow templates to be created regardless of whether Community Sites or Server Publishing has been enabled.

    Improve the Templates feature to allow templates to be created regardless of whether Community Sites or Server Publishing has been enabled.

    The bug described here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2492356/save-site-as-template-option-isn-t-available-in-sharepoint-online-in-o is entirely unacceptable. Site templates is a required feature in order to be able to use SharePoint effectively, and completely neutering this feature by turning on another feature is absurd. Fix this.

  20. Is there a way to have a "view as" like LinkedIn so you can see how opening documents look when you have certain permissions on them?

    I have SharePoint sites with documents that my boss wants to make sure only her and I have edit permissions. To make sure the perms are set correctly I am having folks open them but it would be nice, and less time consuming, if there were an option to "view as" like LinkedIn has to see how your profile looks to others. Just wanted to suggest the idea. Thanks!
