  2. A OOTB feature should be available to hide "Shared with Us" link

    A OOTB feature should be available to hide "Shared with Us" link. Also, a suggestion regarding the placement of this link.
    Can we have this link on the document library ribbon menu instead of Left navigation menu.

  3. Ability to set 'Tile' or 'List' as a default view

    Please allow libraries to be show in List view by default.

    I don't mind tile view, but when I got to all the trouble of setting up columns and mandatory fields and it displays tiles by default for each new user, all the power of the document library metadata is hidden.

    This happened for me when the library contained only PDFs

  4. Too much white space

    There is too much white space on the new modern pages. I would rather see less white space and be able to adjust the spacing myself.

    Thank you for everyone’s feedback around the use of white space on modern pages. We are continually looking for ways to refine our designs and the use of white space is an important part of this. While the custom control of sections or the custom control of columns is not likely to happen, there could be other optimizations we will be thinking about in the future. Thank you.

  5. Customize SharePoint Email Alert Templates

    Allow the site collection admins to customize the template for the standard SharePoint alerts. The current email alerts are confusing, provide too much information to the user and are out-of-date style-wise.

    Allow the admins to add common fields, i.e. "Title", "Created By", and include an image and hyperlinks. Also allow adding a CSS style sheet.

  7. Allow customizing fonts in “Modern” pages.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    "モダン" ページのフォントをカスタマイズできるようにしてほしい

    Allow customizing fonts in “Modern” pages.


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点で "モダン" ページのフォントをカスタマイズすることができないため、カスタマイズできるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, I recognized that the customization for fonts is not available on “Modern” pages.

    In order to improve the usability for the pages, it will be great if we could customize fonts on “Modern” pages as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. Left menu/submenu expand and/or collapse default behavior setting

    In modern view sites, the current left menu/submenu default behavior for submenu items is set to collapsed (this was changed from expanded about a year ago). There should be a way to select the default left menu/submenu expansion and contraction behavior either at the menu level, or at the very least at the site level. The current behavior of collapsed hides much of the functional items available on the site, that is, unless users have expanded the left menu enough to where they have committed the menu structure to memory - a tiresome exercise.

  9. Allow a site owner to kick a user out of a file opened in Excel Online

    If you have multiple people co-authoring in Excel Online, there are times when you need to open the file in Excel - typically for advanced formatting, etc. If someone has accidentally left the file open in their browser, there is no way to force them out and keeps the file locked. Although not always intentional, it can create a major headache by not being able to simply kick/close out that particular user from editing.

  10. Requests for correction on behavior to open in edit mode of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business due to specification changes on MC 1

    When opening Word, Excel, PowerShell files of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business in Office Online with MC 131670 published in Message Center, it opened directly in edit mode.
    As usual, please restore it so that it can be opened in viewing mode by default.
    Or, add setting items so that you can select edit mode or viewing mode as the default value.

  11. Add documentlibrary setting for opening in view or edit mode

    Previously the default behavour was to open in Read mode, and then actively change to Edit mode - with the latest updates the default is to open in Edit-mode.
    This causes Word Online to save the second the user opens the document, and thereby rendering the "Edited by" and "Last edited"-fields completly useless, as it in effect just shows who opened the document last.

    It also causes users to make a lot of accidental changes to documents as well.

    Since users are complaning about both the default behaviours, why not add a setting that let's the admins control how files…

  12. 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…

  13. Allow changing the width of columns when adding sections to a Modern Page

    Looks like you can't change columns' width when creating a new section in a Modern Page. Being able to chage it would be very useful. My classic page, for example, has a section containing 3 columns, where the first and last ones have their width set to 25%, while the central one has width set to 50%. In Modern Pages, I can only have 3 columns with the same width, 33% in this case.

    Thanks you for the suggestion. We’ve discussed adding additional column layout options (e.g. 4 columns, the specific example provided by the initial suggester 25/50/25, etc.) If we wanted to keep pages consistent (so there aren’t 50 layouts), but allow additional flexibility, what would be the next three layout choices you’d add? Thanks!

  14. News Digest Banner and Logo Enhancements

    News Digests:
    1. Please allow the ability to add a customer banner (color and/or picture).
    2. Please allow the ability to have sections and a colored headers for each.
    3. Please allow the ability tochange the SharePoint logo to a custom logo or our organization logo.

  15. More than 2 levels of "Group By"

    There is a strong need to Group By more than two levels of column data. Example, we use SP to track mosquitos for vector control. I want to Group by Week, Trap Site, Trap Type, Species, Condition, etc... The ability to drill down and see totals for each condition or "Group By" would be fantastic. This leads to the next suggestion, Add Calculated columns to Group By Totals.

  16. Add Table of Contents (TOC) for SharePoint Wiki pages.

    Wikipedia had it implemented years ago. I suggest you to add a dynamically created Table of Contents (TOC) for SharePoint Wiki pages, according to the title-styles used in the documents.

  17. Prioritize large list management in SharePoint Online

    Large list management has to become a priority. Even with the most thought out and careful planning, inevitably something will come up and you need to make a change to a list or library. Once that goes over 5,000 items, it becomes impossible to do anything management related to the list, which actually hinders it's use. Users can continually add files, but you can't do anything to help them.

    This has to be addressed in some fashion, whether it is allowing APIs like REST and CSOM to bypass this restriction so they can perform basic administrative operations or giving us…

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

    We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…

  18. Enable the ability to paste images directly into multi-line text boxs instead of just URLs

    Currently you need to paste a URL in a MLTB but if someone is looking to clip and paste a image from their PC, this become a pain. Can we please just paste directly into the MLTB?

  19. New Experience Issues

    In the new experience, our users still want: 1) to check-in multiple files; 2) open .msg and .pdf files in their client application without having to download it; and 3) in the viewer while looking at a pdf file with an electronic signature, the signature disappears; we'd like to see the signature please.

  20. Nested Hub Sites

    Don't think this has been suggested yet, but Hub sites should definitely allow nesting!! The flat/flexible organization is good, and allowing some hierarchy/rollup with hubs is better, but would be best if a hub could be a sub of another hub (a branch, sub of region, sub of district) and have rollup through each level of nested hubs. Allows best of both worlds - flexibility of flat and dynamic association, with advantages of multi-layer hubs!
