  1. Attaching Alert for Document upgrade

    Morning All,

    Could I please suggest being able to have an alert setup on the employee details form.

    I know we should be downloading straight from SharePoint.

    The internet up on site can fail at any time This would leave us without being able to use SharePoint.

    However we download templates onto M: Drive. due to this factor.

  3. View Only

    Create an option to open a document as "view only". Therefore accidental changes cannot be made if "view only" is selected.

  4. einfache Suche

    Es sollte möglich sein nach Themen oder nach Normen zu suchen. Im Glossar sollten verweise direkt zu den Dokumenten gemacht werden, damit diese schnell gefunden werden.

  7. dokumentnamn og datering

    Dokumenter må namngis slik at dei kjem i kronologisk rekkefølgje.
    Beste datering er åååå.mm.dd

    Det må stå årstal i tillegg til dato på møtedato, både i filnamnet og i sjølve dokumentet.

  11. The "New Menu" in Modern Team Sites should be able to reset to default settings

    The New menu reverts to an empty menu after removing templates. The "New Menu" in Modern Team Sites should be able to reset to default settings (Word, Excel, OneNote, Link, Folder) after removing templates.

  14. When we are inside a folder, we should see the metadata of the folder in the right pane until we select the files/folders inside the folder.

    Please show metadata of the folder in the detail pane when user is inside the folder. They should also modify the folder metadata when inside a folder. Bad user experience. Alfresco and other collaboration tools works that way.

  17. Update version instead of creating ne file while overvriting during copy between two libraries

    If a file is updated loaded to a document library that contains a file with the same name we can overwrite it and the old file is kept in the document history, we have the same behavior if we copy files between folders in a library but if we copy files between libraries and overwrite an existing file a completely new file is created and the history is lost.
    Please add the possibility to update the file if a new version is copied from another library

  19. Document Libraries SP2019 IE11

    SharePoint 2019 only in combination with Internet Explorer has issues with switching from Modern Experience to Classic Experience and back to Modern Experience.
    When you do this actions the icons above the document library aren't correct.

  20. Request to expand the functionality that allows "Group By" of views in the default "Name" column

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    既定の "名前" 列で、ビューの "グループ化" が可能となる機能の拡充要望

    Request to expand the functionality that allows "Group By" of views in the default "Name" column

    ■Description(内容):
    現在、既定の "名前" 列では、ビューの "グループ化" 機能の列に設定ができない。
    フォルダーは、"名前" 列以外にプロパティの値を持たないため、フォルダーのグループ化ができない。

    既定の "名前" 列で、ビューの "グループ化" が可能となる機能の拡充を要望します。

    Currently, the default "Name" column does not allow you to set a column for the "Group By" feature in the view.
    Folders cannot be grouped because folders do not have property values other than the "Name" column.

    We request that the default "Name" column be enhanced to allow "Group By" of views.
