  2. A Total Revamp for Wikis

    Could we please have the ability to create Wikis in SharePoint that look like TechNet or Wikipedia? Please try to make things more simple. Do not over complicate it again.

  3. Make the Delve organization chart available as a web part in regular sites.

    The current "organization browser" web part :
    The html view is just a list = not worth the time
    You need silverlight to get a visual presentation but:
    -nobody uses silverlight
    -silverlight isn't compatible with modern browsers (because no one uses it)
    The silverlight rendition in IE is appallingly ugly and isn't responsive.

    To have a functional attractive org chart seems like a no brainer for a service that claims to be "enterprise" ready. It's already built in Deleve so just make it available as a web part.

  4. 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.

  5. Drag and drop from SharePoint to desktop

    In the past, you were able to not only drag and drop files from your desktop to SharePoint, you could also drag and top files visvera from your SharePoint to your desktop. Unfortunately, this feature does not work any longer and was never intented to work based on the statement of the support specialist (Office365 support case: SRX616012694500709ID). I do not see a security issue here, because it only worked when the site was part of the trusted sites/intranet in the IE options. eRoom had this feature with a plug-in already back in 2002 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ERoom). It would be…

  6. Ability to save a file directly into a library and choose the metadata

    There are some ways but they are limited. They don’t work in some situations or from any application. The saving experience to a shared drive is still so much more consistent!
    - Use a favorite/add network location/map network drive
    - In Office, we can choose where to save, pin in each application
    - Save from an email: a message or attachment by saving on the desktop
    It would be amazing to be able to:
    1. Mark all sites (or libraries) where we would want to save (shortcuts)
    2. Click on save in any application and be able to choose one…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Remove the 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields

    There is currently a 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields. This restriction impedes ability to save Urls that might include hash values are long query strings. Some examples where this is really common are links to SSRS reports (with parameters) and Search urls that contain refinements.

  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.

  12. Organize sharepoint sites

    I'd like to be able to organize the home page of sites i'm following to put the sites I use the most at the top, and group similar sites --for instance, I have several sites that are related to Human resources work, but I only use them occasionally and would like them to put them in a folder or notebook. Instead, they are all listed separately and I have to scroll through them to get to the ones I use more frequently. If there is already a way to do this, it is NOT apparent on the way my sharepoint…

  13. Add Article Tagging to the Modern News Feature

    It would be great to tag News posts/articles by category (e.g., training, motivational, announcement, etc.). Users could then refine by category to see all articles under that tag.

  14. 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

  16. Add Rating Settings to Document Libraries

    Add the "Rating Settings" to document libraries in Communication Sites. This exists on other doc libraries from other site templates. This would allow users to rate/like content and we could add a section of "most like documents" etc to the page.

  18. Default notification for lists and library's hitting the 5000 items limit

    At the moment there is no option to send a notification to an Office 365 Admin when a list or library is reaching the limit of 5000 items, it would be good if an out of the box option could be implemented to send this notification. e.g., a check-box option with an email field and the number of items to alert when reached, this would be great if it could be implemented across all site collections, so an Admin could set this up once and not worry about time consuming tasks of having to set up alerts or workflows to…

  19. #Hashtags & @Mentions in blogs

    Blog pages/posts should allow 'Hashtags and @mentions but they currently dont.

    The rest of SharePoint social (micro blogging converstations, forum comments etc) make use of this. so it is beyond strange that if you comment on a blog you cant mention someone to make them aware etc

  20. Why can't you simply cut and paste files from one folder to another in sharepoint??? It's ridiculous that you can't do this.

    It's simply. Include a way of cut and pasting files from one sharepoint folder to another
