  2. Allow modification of email digest template

    Please allow us to modify the email digest template to include the corporate logo. Preferably removing Microsoft and SharePoint from the top of the digest and moving them to the bottom next to get the app.

  3. Two-Way-Sync between SharePoint and Excel

    It should be feasible to sync updates from Excel to SharePoint Online list. We can import the Excel sheet to a SharePoint Online list or export a SharePoint list to Excel file. However, the sync between them is one-way.

    Changes made in the SharePoint list can be written to Excel, but any changes that we make in Excel won't written to SharePoint list automatically.

  4. Accordions Webparts

    Introduce Accordions & Tabs (In-page) web parts | More Table Functionality

    Accordions help users see only the content they need. Accordions expand and collapse sections of content with a title.

    Horizontal & Vertical Tabs (In-page)
    Tabs are perfect for single page web applications, or for web pages capable of displaying different subjects.

    Tables are very limited. You can't even merge a cell? Enough said.

  5. Drag and Drop attachments from Outlook

    Would love to be able to drag & drop email attachments directly from Outlook into a document library. Currently I have to drag them to my desktop and then drag from my desktop into the doc library.

  6. Group by Content Type

    Allow grouping by Content Type within lists and libraries, just like we could in SharePoint 2007!

  7. Customizing Column Width

    Modern lists seem to have an unmodifiable min width (even with JSON). Also, manually adjusted column widths reset upon refresh.

    It seems many are asking for customizable and SET column widths (similar to setting widths for web parts would be satisfactory or even allow JSON to alter).

    The excessive white space and scrolling right is problematic and inefficient.

  8. Timeline - Gantt View in Modern Experience

    Timeline in Modern Experience Gantt View

    The tasks app should allow a timeline to be created and displayed in the modern experience of sharepoint online.

    Tasks needs to be created and searchable in the modern experience. Just like it use to work in the classic experience.

  10. Permissions report - inheritance breaks

    Allow the owners of the sites to view a report of the security of their site. Start by adding a chart of the inheritance breaks of the whole site in one glance. This will become more and more important since you can use the 'Share' button on a file and break inheritance without understanding what you're doing.

  11. Modern Page Ratings

    Will the functionality to like/rate pages be added to the modern pages? This is obviously available on classic pages and would be a great addition to the modern pages especially within the Communication sites.

  12. Ability to hide the Hub Site navigation

    Add the ability to hide the hub site navigation via some setting or powershell.

    The hub site navigation is a list of static links with no security trimming and no way to target an audience. With the introduction of SharePoint SPFx extensions we have the ability to create a header on top of the page. The most common usecase in this scenario is to create a customized menu. However if hub sites are used and you need a customized menu you will have two menu's at the top.

    Here are a few business scenario's for a customized menu


    1. Company has…

  13. hide/disable the Recent Activity in the details pane

    Implement a configurable switch to hide/disable the Recent Activity in the details pane. Should be configurable at the user, library or tenant level.

    Users find it annoying when the details pane keeps refreshing as other users update a list item or document; it makes the details pane constantly refresh and appears to "flicker" causing a poor user experience.

  15. Improve SharePoint Document Metadata Entry

    Changes which were implemented by Microsoft in Office 2016 and SharePoint Online, as well as list view thresholds make entering SharePoint metadata on documents prohibitive.

    Office 2016 Desktop Applications:

    One significant change in Office 2016 was the removal of the document information panel (DIP). When the DIP displayed in Office applications (pre-2016), it was obvious even to the most casual SharePoint users that there were document properties which should be assigned values, as well as how to enter these values. By contrast, with the DIP removed in 2016:


    1. It is not obvious to the casual user that there are document…

  16. Improve Highlighted content web part to support custom content types and their custom columns

    I'd like to show users documents from an another site (different o365 group site). I came across the Highlighted content web part which is a very flexible and potentially useful function. However I can not filter my documents with it as it
    1 does not show custom content type at the type or document type filters (even though my content type is directly inheriting Document), and does not lists my documents either (basically being Documents because of the inheritance)
    2 can not select custom columns of my content type at the managed property filter.

  17. Add event registration to Communication Sites

    While I love being able to create events easily in SP Communication sites (and love that users can add them to their calendars), not having the ability to have users register for limited capacity events means we have to duplicate the information or abandon the events in SP all together.

  19. Page Level Breadcrumb

    Please enable a breadcrumb for navigating pages on SharePoint. Even if its just for Modern Pages... or Communication Sites.

    Scenario:
    We have our intranet on our main site collection (consisting of 6 sub-sites exc. the root site) and one of the biggest problems I come across from end users is that they dont know where they are.  They clicked a link from the homepage or from a news article, its taken them to the page they wanted to go to... but they have no idea where that is.
     
    The problem this causes is the user cannot find a way…

  20. Add managed metadata as filter option in Highlighted Content webpart in Modern Pages

    Filter options now only include title or content search, and managed properties.

    Adding managed metadata will improve this powerful webpart!
