  1. security inheritance

    Allow both local permissions and inherited permission son an object.

    The same way both Windows file server and every other product on the market works.

    Sharing a document with someone should not break that objects security inheritance this causes huge pains in SharePoint and removing inheritance should only be something that is done on a small number of items for specific reasons rather than a requirement for every item that might be shared.

  2. Increase or darken font size

    If there is anything we can do to increase or darken the font size, that would be helpful- I'm having a hard time reading everything.

  3. Notifications/Overview on Site Pages comments

    Send a notification to the page owner or configurable address when a new comment is posted to a sitepage.
    Or make an page where you, as a content responsible person, can get an overview of the latest comments.
    If you have a lot of information pages it's not possible to check each page manually every day in order to see if a new comment has been posted that you might need to respond to.

  6. Copy and Move pictures between Picture Libraries

    We would like to be able to copy and move pictures to Picture Library within Modern sites.

    Business case:
    We have one picture library for external and archived images, and another to act as an image bank with more controlled metadata and versioning (the official images). We cannot move pictures between them efficiently!

    It seems that modern Copy To and Move To supports only Document Libraries.
    And there is no Site content And Structure tool available any more.
    SharePoint Migration Tool also seems to support only Document Libraries.

    So please give us a tool to copy/move efficiently dozens of images…

  7. Changes are not synced to SharePoint Online after we change AD security group name

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Active Directory 上で変更したセキュリティ グループ名を、SharePoint Online 上に同期される機能の実装希望

    Changes are not synced to SharePoint Online after we change AD security group name


    Active Directory 上で変更したセキュリティ グループ名を、SharePoint Online 上のセキュリティ グループ名に反映されない。もともとのセキュリティ グループを削除すると固有の権限が削除されてしまうため、セキュリティ グループは削除しない方向で、Active Directory 上の変更内容を、SharePoint Online 上に同期されるよう連携機能の拡充を要望します。

    Active directory synchronization doesn't propagate the change from Active Directory to SharePoint Online, and we do not want to delete the security group itself as we would lose some of permission by doing so.
    For improvement of usability and manageability, sync any Active Directory changes to SharePoint Online.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. Disable SharePoint "News from Sites" feature.

    The default view in the SharePoint homepage includes the "News from Sites" feature at the top of the page. This should be disabled or admins should be given the option of disabling it. Our organization does not use the news feature, and we're FORCED to look at the same stagnant content month after month after month with no real way of changing it.

  10. Overhaul Windows save dialog to support SharePoint

    Prior to SharePoint, users are used to the same file save workflow from any Windows application...


    • From the application, go to File > Save As...

    • Select the location you want to save (this could be on the local computer or a network drive or Favorite)

    • Name the file and save

    Here's the problem:


    1. Office apps have SharePoint saving built into their Save As... function. However this is super clunky and far too complicated for the average user, most of whom have never had one iota of desktop application training (on anything - Office... anything!)

    Users can save from Office and…

  11. Possibility to set warnings on the new Sharepoint news from sites page

    It would be great to have the option to receive notifications on the new Sharepoint "News from sites" page so we’d be able to manage notifications on a per site basis through the individual sharepoint sites.

  13. Enable copy & paste, drag & drop inside rich text field

    Currently the rich text field does not allow copying the files or images inline directly. Also, drag and drop is not possible inside rich text field.

    In outlook microsoft allows drag & drop , copy & paste. If the same feature is available in SharePoint it will be more useful for the users who use SharePoint as a Collaborative Enviroment.

  14. Keep classic SharePoint

    Each time I open SharePoint it opens in the, well, not the classic view of SharePoint. It's nice that it has a link to switch it back to "Return to classic SharePoint". I like that interface better and always switch to it. Is there a way to persist that selection, to keep it in my setting, or is there a way to get rid of this new look? Just do it!

  17. Replace the term "delete unique permissions" with "inherit permissions from parent"

    We find that many users do not understand the term "delete unique permissions". As result, many sites with carefully constructed unique permissions have inadvertently inherited the parent permissions. This has caused lots of support questions (reinstalling the owners permissions) and rework for the site owners, while no change log, undo option or version history is available.
    Replacing this term with "inherit permissions from parent" might make it easier for people to understand what they are doing.
    (And trust me, this warning is all over our training materials and users still make this mistake)

  19. Allow external users to upload files

    It is important to my business to exchange files with my customers. Often I need them to upload files. They can only do so if they have an MS account. This shouldn't be necessary. I shouldn't have to require my customers to either create a MS account or use their personal accounts to do business with me. I should be able to give anyone I wish permission to have access to a folder in my OneDrive which allows them to upload, download, view, edit, ect., etc. all the files within the folder I've granted them access to. I shouldn't need…

    現在は 2 つ以上の予定表を重ね合わせることで色分けができるが、1 つの予定表の中で任意の色に変更できる機能を実装してほしい

    Allow assigning a color category to a calendar event even it is just a single calendar, no calendar overlays. Currently, we can assign color category only when we overlay more than 2 calendars.
