  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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
