  1. Responsive design

    The mobile views are not a solution, so many customers turn to custom design, but I would rather a responsive design be built into SharePoint.

      Thank you for the suggestion! In the past several months, we have released a series of new interfaces for SharePoint Online, all of which are responsive (e.g, modern list, modern document library, modern team site home page, new site connect page, and modern site page, etc.). We also released mobile apps across iOS, Android, and UWP platforms. Hope these help you better work on mobile and on the go. Let us know if you have any new feedback/followups.

    • Remove the limit (5,000 items) on SharePoint Document Library Syncing

      The sync limit does not match OneDrive for Business, and adds complexity to the end user experience, administration and architecture of SharePoint. Please remove this sync limit.

      • Managed Navigation for new Document Library Experience

        Currently the new document library experience does not support Managed Navigation. It would be great to have this as currently using the structured navigation seems buggy in the new experience. Specifically, it ignores the "hidden" attribute of structured navigation which can make for some large menus. We love the new experience and are hoping to train users up and roll it out however we need to get navigation right before we can do this.

          Thank you for the feedback requesting support for classic publishing on modern pages in team sites. We have rolled out an update that will now correctly render your structured or managed navigation links on modern pages in classic team sites.

          Please see the help article (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Customize-the-navigation-on-your-team-site-3cd61ae7-a9ed-4e1e-bf6d-4655f0bf25ca?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US) for more details – or visit the MS Tech Community (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/UPDATE-Support-for-Structured-Managed-Navigation-enabled-on/m-p/57384) to share any comments/questions.

        • Modified dates in Site Contents should reflect content changes, not system changes

          Looking at the modified values in Site Contents has always been a quick way to recognize where activity has occurred - if it has. Without running any code we can quickly see if a site has been used recently. (It was easier to eyeball this in SharePoint 2007 in the vertical listing than it is in SharePoint 2013+, but that's a different UI issue - tiles aren't helpful for every use case.)

          For months now, a list no one has touched for over a year might say "Modified 23 hours ago". It seems as though lists and libraries are being…

            Thanks for this feedback. This is an example of how User Voice and Twitter brought this to our attention.

            We have rolled out a fix to all of production for this issue. Going forward, Site Content’s dates will only update based upon real user behavior, not system changes.

            It’s worth noting that this is a go-forward fix – we did not feel it right to go back and change existing dates.

            Please let us know if you see any dates update that are unexpected.

              Drag and dropping a file to a library with a required field will show the details pane and prompt the user to fill out the field.

              Currently you can only use the details pane to update the metadata of one item at a time. We’re thinking about better capabilities to “bulk apply” metadata.

              Number 1 limitation is the fact that we cannot share folders without requiring users to sign-in. Adoption of this product will be limited without this feature.

              • Enable folder Download option

                I contacted support and currently only way to download folder is using IE and open the folder inside Explorer.

                Support for other browsers would be great. Alternative is to compress content of folder to ZIP and download that file, like it's available in Microsoft Account version of OneDrive.

                    Just a brief update – this is a multi-phase fix. We have amended support in modern site header/pages for structured navigation, but if you are using managed navigation (via enabling publishing feature) support for this is still in the works. We are actively working on supporting this data provider and plan to have a fix soon.

                    We’re going to resolve this idea – to track the remaining publishing work see/subscribe to: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/admin/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/14749329-managed-navigation-for-new-document-library-experi

                    • Show breadcrumb down to folder level in a library

                      The breadcrumb becomes fairly useless after you have arrived at Document Library level. Folders are still a very important way for users to organize documents. Once you start going into folders, there is no telling from the navigation controls where you are.
                      This could easily be fixed with an improved breadcrumb which shows the path down to the folder level.

                      Ideally this should even be an option that you can control from navigation settings, which currently allow zero control over the breadcrumb control.
                      This is something you should be able to manipulate through configuration without the need for custom code.

                        • Allow users to complete required metadata when uploading documents.

                          Allow users to complete required metadata when uploading documents using the modern library view. Currently, users are not prompted to complete required fields or select a content type. As a result, the file is left in a checked-out state unless the user knows to edit the properties as a second step after uploading. This breaks sites that have structured metadata and/or specific content type usage requirements. SharePoint has always prompted for these required fields in the past, why remove that functionality?

                          • Make an easier way to navigate up when you are in a sub-folder within a document library.

                            The 'Navigate Up' button on the library ribbon tab is too hidden for users and it also requires an extra click every time you need to go up. The breadcrumb also requires an extra click because you have to click the 'Browse' tab in the ribbon to see it every time.

                            • Drag and Drop Folders to SharePoint

                              SharePoint supports dragging files from your desktop into a SharePoint document library, but as soon as you want to drag in a folder containing multiple files/sub-folders this is not supported. You have to recreate the folders manually in document library and then drag in files separately, this consumes a lot of time.

                              • Allow list web parts on modern pages

                                Modern pages allow the addition of news, links, activity, etc., but there is no option to display list view web parts. We use lists constantly and rely on list view web parts. Specifically, I would like to continue using the very cool "Promoted Links" list in new sites and use the standard web part for that list. The tiles have been very popular for key navigation elements for a site, and I don't want to lose that when moving to modern pages/sites.

                                • List and Library Column Widths

                                  In document libraries and in the List View it would be great if the column widths and text size could be adjustable. This would make larger lists a bit more readable to the user rather that letting Sharepoint decide the column width.

                                  • Allow document to open in new tab on right click

                                    I should be able to right click on a document in a library and open it in a new browser tab.

                                    • Top navigation on the new document library look

                                      It is crucial for many of our customers that they do not get their top-menu in SharePoint removed when accessing document libraries (the new OneDrive for Business look). Please make it possible to activate this so the users are not "lost" in their own intranet.

                                      • Quick Views support in Document Library UI

                                        Ok, so quick edit views seem to be not supported in the new UI...you can create a new quick edi view, but you can only use in the old UI. It could be nice, and necessary, to add support to quick views in the new UI

                                        • Make the "(+) new document" button in doclib match available ContentTypes in the New button from Ribbon.

                                          Please make the "(+) new document" button from the web part and document libraries match available CTs as the ones available under the "New" button from the Ribbon. Please also include "Document sets" in the available CTs :)
