Even with site mailboxes, there is still a need to store a email file (such as an MSG from outlook) in a document library. This is useful when you are doing records management, have a document set, and need to save an email with other document records.188 votesdeclined · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded

When overlaying calendars in SharePoint Online it has a selection in the UI to choose a "SharePoint" or an "Exchange" calendar but the "Exchange" selection doesn't work. There are several posts in Office 365 support that confirms that this feature doesn't work but it still appears in the UI as an option???
I tried created an Exchange calendar overlay on a SharePoint calendar on one of my site collections. However, one of the mandatory fields required is a web service URL. These do not currently exist in SP 2013 Online on Office 365.173 votesdeclined · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (firstname.lastname@example.org, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We are not considering any improvements to SharePoint calendars for the time being. We recommend using Office 365 Groups with associated Outlook calendars for calendars in a team collaboration context.
Allow for permission to be set on views. We would like to be able to use lists for submitting user data but do not want them to see all of the columns available in the list.153 votesdeclined · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We recommend exploring the use of PowerApps as a means of customizing the form experience – https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/
Some features do not work in Internet Explorer but do work in Chrome or Edge but the "Open in explorer" only work in IE.
Please fully support IE11 or enable "Open in explorer" in Edge or Chrome. We need this feature for adoption.
Fully support at least on browser.106 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We are putting all our energy into making the OneDrive app with Files On Demand the best way to interact with all your SharePoint and OneDrive documents. The legacy Open in Explorer feature depends on some very particular interactions between IE and the Windows OS that can’t be generalized to other browsers, and in addition prevents us from integrating features like sharing links.
If there are scenarios that OneDrive and Files On Demand aren’t delivering for you, please open a specific UserVoice request for those.
Windows should be a first-class enterprise experience for SharePoint to drive adoption. Therefore the File Explorer should be able to view and edit (with the correct permissions) SharePoint columns and views. Windows Explorer should inherit all the rights trimmed experience of SharePoint permissions, so it is possible to lock things down so users can't make a mess of things in Windows Explorer70 votes
Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. Instead, we’d like to improve our metadata story across Office, Office Online, and mobile apps. Technically speaking, we are much more able to influence the experience of these places than we are Windows Explorer.

Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. We do like this idea, and we see a lot of really useful applications of this feature, but it falls fairly low on our overall priorities. We may re-evaluate this down the road, in FY17 or FY18.
Somewhat related to this (https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/17274506-leave-files-checked-out-when-required-fields-are-n) problem, is that if the Modern UI is turned on for a document library, it wont enforce mandatory fields, unless "enforce checkout" is turned on.
You can edit document properties, check-out/in and publish quite happily without filling out the required fields.
Turning on "enforce check-out" still allows you to edit properties without completing the mandatory ones, but check-in will complain about missing columns.62 votes
Thanks you for the feedback; in our new design we do prompt for metadata on upload but we are not blocking save/check-in, opting instead for an attention view model.

I would be glad to see you bring back Meeting wokspace templates for Websites in SharePoint 2016 on premise and Office Outlook.51 votes
Thank you for the feedback! This scenario definitely has merit, but we are not planning to invest in this at this time. We hope that customers will be able to use modern team sites, Teams, and Planner to meet their scenarios, but please open a new suggestion w/ specifics if there are scenarios being missed. Thanks!
I have a document library where I place documents before I share the documents with others using a url. These urls can be very long.
it would be very useful to be able to have access to a shortened url when sharing a document as a link. e.g. http://sp.com/bYSywe24 votes
Thanks for sharing your idea. However, this is not something we would consider to provide in the near term.
The libraries section has been removed from the new SharePoint look. I think this should come back as it made editing file names, titles etc. easy and quick. It was a very good feature.23 votes
The new document library experience does not support the Ribbon. Most of the functionality from this Ribbon tab is available in the new UI – either in the top command bar, the right click menu, or under the gear on the page.
Add another column in the Site Columns view that provides a list of objects (content types, lists, libraries etc) where the Site Column is being used.12 votes
This is a great idea and makes a lot of sense, but we’re not planning any work on this in the near future. We will update you if plans change.

Enable using Site templates in Modern sites
現時点ではモダン サイトにて、サイト テンプレート機能が利用できないため今後の機能拡充に向けモダン サイトにおいてもサイト テンプレート機能が利用できるよう要望いたします。
Currently in Modern sites, the site template feature cannot be used.
For improvement of usability in the future, allow users to use the site template feature in the Modern sites as well.
Thank you for your consideration.10 votes
Thank you for the feedback! We are addressing this capability/ask with site designs – effectively allowing users to apply their own customizations to a base set of site templates that we can continue to update over time (addressing a limitation w/ point-in-time site templates of the past). For more details check out https://aka.ms/spsitedesigns.
Thanks for the feedback – we appreciate the time and interest! Unfortunately, this feature was deprecated due to design limitations in the last release and it’s not currently and area we’re looking to invest in right now. That said, you can still mimic much of the functionality provided by slide libraries through reusing slides from another presentation without having to open the other file. Check out this support article for more details: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Reuse-import-slides-from-another-presentation-c67671cd-386b-45dd-a1b4-1e656458bb86
Allow the Communications Site Template and Web Parts in Existing Site Collections by creating a new subsite. Allow the features of the new communications site template to be enabled through site features so that existing sites can be converted to the new template.6 votes
Our recommendation going forward is to create separate site collections, and we’ll have features to talk about in the future that will solve many of the scenarios subsites address.
At this point,I am unable to use the "Record & Video" in One Note Online despite the it is in the One Note client. Therefore, I hope the feature to be improved that would be available in One Note Online even through the device along with no One Note client so that I could keep directly the Video within One Note notebook.3 votes

The way to use File Explorer on SharePoint document libraries is with “Open in Explorer” from Internet Explorer
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.2 votes
The workflow engine used by SharePoint is not connected with the add-ins model. With the “provider hosted” app model we are seeing customers, ISVs and SIs getting advantages of more complex workflow engines that are able to connect to different Office 365 workloads instead of SharePoint only.
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.2 votes
The recycle bin is designed to temporaily keep the deleted files/folders and give you an opportunity to recover the files/folders. And there are two stages of recycle bin, so when a user purges the file in the user’s recycle bin, the file or folder is still available for site admin to restore.
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.2 votes
Unfortunately SharePoint Online doesn’t support SMS, and we are not planning to undertake such support in the near future. We are, however, working on bringing push notifications on mobile devices. We don’t have any timelines to disclose on this yet.
