  1. Map a network drive or location to a SharePoint library without having to keep logging in

    Map a network drive or location to a SharePoint Online library, so the folder can be accessible as a permanent location in File Explorer, without having to keep going back to the web site to re-enter your login credentials.

  3. Allow workflow actions to be included in App Store Apps

    We make a popular product for converting, merging, watermarking and securing files in SharePoint Online. The most popular use for this software is to include our workflow actions in custom SharePoint Designer workflows.

    Currently it is not possible to deploy custom workflow actions via SharePoint Apps. As a result our customers have to manually deploy a sandboxed solution that contains our workflow actions. A pretty horrible experience.

    Please consider adding support for (declarative) workflow actions to the App model, preferably in a way that doesn't require elevated privileges and may be distributed via the App store.

  4. Allow for restoration of individual files/folders in SharePoint Online and hold more than 14 days backup.

    Allow individual files/folders to be restored from backup in SharePoint Online instead of it only being an entire site collection backed up (which, if done, you lose any changes to the site since the backup date). Also, keep more than 14 days of backup for SharePoint online sites.

  5. Add support for SMS in Sharepoint Online

    SMS cannot be configured for Sharepoint list alerts in Sharepoint Online. The option is there but can't be selected. This is confusing and frustrating for users.

  9. Remove the 1TB per site collection limit

    It is sometimes a requirement to keep everything within one site collection however the 1TB limit means you have to do extra work to split data up, also at the expense of the user experience.

  10. Ability to edit the site deletion policy email template.

    Currently the email notification that is sent to site owners doesn't provide a link to the Site Policy and Lifecycle page (just a link to the site). The email notification also isn't branded, so it doesn't look like it comes from us.

  11. Increase timeout of workflow manager HTTP Get requests

    We have a large number of customers who are using our custom workflow actions in SharePoint Online to automate document conversions. This works quite well, but we have recently identified a problem where HTTP requests in declarative workflow actions are set to a very short time out.

    When running on-premise this setting can be tweaked via PowerShell by modifying 'WorkflowServiceMaxHttpResponseTime' (See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj680843(v=azure.10).aspx). However there appears to be no way to control this in SharePoint Online.

    Now, the default 1 minute time-out may seem long, but quite a few operations take longer than a minute, e.g. merging multiple files together,…

  12. Convert to PDF

    Add time level action to save text document to PDF. It should also be available as a workflow action. I know the document conversion service can achieve this feature be it requires a lot of work and custom solution for it to work properly. Also it not something that can be done on o365.

  13. Create "Edit Online Only" SharePoint permission, or allow for custom permission to achieve this effect

    For various reasons, my organization really needs an "Edit Online Only" permission for document collaboration on SP.

    Most obviously is the security benefit -- allowing a document to be freely edited, but never downloaded, is the preferred solution when only minimal edits are necessary. Don't overlook this benefit, every single business leader will see value in protecting their IP this way.

    There's also a big collaboration need. Imagine blasting 10+ colleagues for their changes in a document. They might all individually download the document, make changes, and send them back, leaving you to piece through their changes to apply them…

  14. Allow anonymous access to SharePoint Online Site(s)

    With the upcoming removal of the Public-Facing sites in SharePoint Online (http://support2.microsoft.com/kb/3027254), many existing and planned solutions and migrations will no longer be possible.

    While the limited functionality of the current Public-Facing solution will not be sorely missed, the ability to allow anonymous access to some SharePoint content certainly will.

    For example, we have quite a few government agencies as clients that need to provide anonymous access to documents that are a matter of Public Record. These documents originate in SharePoint Team Sites and eventually make it to the public-facing site once they are officially a Record. This…
