  1. 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.

  2. Comment Alerts

    SharePoint site news articles are great with the embedded comments section. I would ask and recommend that there be some sort of notifier/alert to the original comment poster when someone else responds to it. This would help keep conversations going forward. It's rather hard to find your original comments when there are many comment posts.

  3. Row Height in Modern List

    Modern list views do not render multi-line text fields correctly horizontally in that a lot of the text near the bottom of the field either can only be half seen or gets cut off completely. Please give users the ability to change the height of the rows just like we can with the width of the columns. What's the point of a multi-line text field if I can't read all of it?

  4. Add Favorite function

    It seems like the new interface doesn't let you Favorite a document. Delve is the only way I can favorite it at this point. Is this by design?

  5. Allow Microsoft Flow to be attached to content types

    Add the option in Microsoft Flow to be triggered when a new item of a certain content type is created or modified. This will allow the creation of 1 flow to run a multiple sites which contain a library/list on which the flow needs to run.

  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.

  8. Support Field level Permissions

    SharePoint should support Field-Level permissions. It is very common to need the ability to show/hide field values depending on current user permissions

  9. Instagram Embed Feed

    It would be great if we could upload a live instagram feed instead of just a post. Just like the twitter one would be amazing.

  10. Configuring Search Results view in Modern pages

    Search Results Page of Modern Pages doesn't allow an option to customize the results view, change default scopes or switch to classic search results format. The search is locked to current site and result view format which mayn't be always what users need.

    While the Modern page UI is work in progress, at least, there should be an option to override the search results to default to OSSSearchResults or to an Classic Enterprise center if needed.

  12. Ability to use <frame>, <iframe>, <object>, <embed> on non .sharepoint.com websites to embed content from .sharepoint.com

    Currently SharePoint returns https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/X-Frame-Options header when trying to embed (with <frame>, <iframe>, <object>, <embed>) documents from external websites. The header is set to "sameorigin" that simply means only pages hosted on .sharepoint.com domain can do that.

    So let's see below example:
    1. Company XYZ has an internal domain: xyz.com. Company is using SharePoint and stores documents e.g.: pdf's there.
    2. Company XYZ has an internal technical portal: portal.xzy.com and want's to s embed documents from SharePoint.
    3. Because of X-Frame-Options returned along for any pdf/doc/xls etc document #2 is impossible as web browsers will not allow to do this kind…

  14. Change default setting for access requests from "Edit" to "Read"

    Since there is no existing way to control the default settings for user access requests, and since the default is currently set to 'Edit,' this creates a situation in which a user who may have never accessed Sharepoint before and simply wants to read a news article must instead be granted editing rights--creating a scenario in which many inexperienced users who are only looking to read or download content have to be given the power to create serious, unintentional damage to a page by being granted editing rights. A much more prudent approach would be to set the default permission…

  15. The document library WebPart should interpret .url files as links rather than downloads

    If someone creates a link file (.url) in modern document libraries and clicks on them, he is rerouted to the target url.
    If you embed a document library Web Part in a modern SharePoint page that points to the same document library and you click the .url file, a download will be triggered.
    However, the creators expect the URL files to behave in the same way as they do in the document library, so the user is redirected to the landing page.

  18. Flow Stop sharing a SharePoint folder

    I would like the ability to use Microsoft flow to manage SharePoint folders permissions (Permission list: Full Control | Edit | View) for the following entities users, security groups and Office 365 groups (Operations: Add | Remove | Modify)

    As of today 20191113, the tech article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#stop-sharing-an-item-or-a-folder) says it provide this functionality, yet by testing and through MS support it does not work. This is folder operation in specific and not an item or file

  19. Allow metadata to be added when uploading from Document Library Web Part on Modern Site

    When you place a document library web part on a modern page, and upload a document, the document is uploaded to the library and if you have metadata, there is no chance to add metadata. If you select the file that has just been uploaded, you can Share, Delete, Download or Rename. You must go directly in to the library to add the metadata. The user experience is lacking.

  20. Wiki link functionality in modern pages

    When editing text blocks in a modern web pages, I'd like to use the wiki link code [[New Page Here]] and have the same functionality, meaning that when saved I can click the "New Page Here" link and have a new page be created automatically with the original link going to the new page.
