  1. Mulitple Folder Upload

    I can't seem to upload folders of documents, so I have to create folders and then upload the files in batches. It would be much quicker to upload a whole batch of folders.

  2. Fix the ability to insert multiple Excel objects into Excel from SharePoint.

    If you try and import an Excel object multiple times into Excel from a file on OneDrive / SharePoint an error will occur and the original document will be marked as hidden when opening. The problem does not occur if the file is not part of OneDrive / SharePoint syncing process. MS support says this is a known issue. The workaround is to disable "Use Office applications to Sync Office files that I open", which defeats some of the features of OneDrive/SharePoint for our business.

  3. Widen the columns in Recycle bin

    In the Recycle bin the column is to narrow. Its impossible to see which file I need to restore as I do not see the full Name. Either it should be possible to widen the column or have a help text at the end (drop down box) as on other pages.

  5. Improve Highlighted Content search filters.

    The Highlighted content' app is great and very useful, however the filtering capability is too limited. Please improve the ability to narrow down the search results.

  6. Handle image thumbnails correctly. No black background on images with transparency.

    When you upload PNG files with transparency to a photo library, their thumbnails versions have a black background. If the image you've uploaded has any black in it, it will be rendered invisible because of this and the image will look broken. Please fix this and display images with transparency the same way nearly every other web application does - with a white background or a checkered background to show transparency.

  8. Copy the Link

    In the classic SharePoint it was posible to copy the name of the file and paste it in a e-mail and automatically the hyperlink was copied. The new method is more inefficient with higher time Consuming

  9. Behavior of the search function in SharePoint Online

    Behavior of the search function in SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online はワードブレイクの影響により日本国圏内のユーザーにとっては、利便性に欠けます。
    情報が錯そうし混乱をうむことを避けるため、メールで共有していたものを Microsoft Teams に移行し、作業の効率化が実現できています。
    しかしながら、Microsoft Teams 内のチームで共有したファイルは、SharePoint Online に保存される動作となります。
    ファイルの量が多い際、素早く情報にアクセスするためには、検索の動作向上が大きな課題です。
    より良い製品のため、SharePoint Online の検索機能のワードブレイクの向上及び、検索機能の見直しを要望いたします。

    Currently, due to the effect that word breaks have, the search function is not convenient for users in Japan.
    In order to avoid confusion in the exchange of information between personnel, we have started to use Microsoft Teams for sharing content that was formerly shared via email and have managed to make our work more efficient.
    However, files shared on Microsoft Teams are saved on SharePoint Online. …

  10. allow us to change default name for sender field in send an email activity SPD workflow

    Once we are using workflow in SharePoint Designer to send an email on a list items on SharePoint Online, it will send an email to use. There is a default sender name (which is site name) and default sender email address (which is no-reply@sharepointonline.com). we need to be able to change "default email sender name" as site name doesn't make sense for those who receive it.

  12. Skype for Business Presence in SharePoint Online

    Show people's presence in sharepoint online like it currently shows on sharepoint 2013. I'm not seeing any presence at all on a new page I'm creating after listing people.

  13. Allow admin to manage object context

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    テナントの管理者にてホールド対象と検索対象のコントロールができない動作について

    Allow admin to manage object context


    [Site Settings]-[Search and Offline Availability]-[Indexing Site Content] にて [No] と設定されている場合、
    [Security & Compliance Center] - [Data governance] - [Hold] にてアイテム保持ポリシーの対象サイトとして選択できない。
    また、保持ポリシーが既に設定されているものに対して、[Indexing Site Content] の設定を [Yes] から [No] に変更した場合、コンテンツは保持されるが検索対象とならない動作について、修正を要望します。
    [Indexing Site Content] については、サイト コレクションの管理者にて変更可能な設定であるため、一般ユーザーで変更が可能となってしまう。
    テナントの管理者側の意図に反して一般ユーザーにて設定を変更されてしまうとテナントの管理者側でホールド対象と検索対象を完全に制御できずコントロールできない動作となってしまうため、動作変更を強く要望します。

    When we set [Site Settings] - [Search and Offline Availability] - [Indexing Site Content] - [No], then it seems like we cannot select as site object for retention policies in [Security & Compliance Center] - [Data governance] - [Hold]. Also, when we switched [Indexing Site Content]> [Yes] to [No] in sites that retention policies are…

  16. Edit and save changes to Excel spreadsheets embedded as a web part

    When you embed a spreadsheet in sharepoint as a web part, you can edit the spreadsheet, but there is no Save button. When you navigate away, all changes to the spreadsheet's contents are lost. This is a feature request to allow you to edit and save changes to excel spreadsheets embedded in sharepoint pages as web parts.

  17. TechCommunity Site as Knowledge Community Site Template

    Office365 provides a great avenue for knowledge management and collaboration. But there is not any standardized template available to setup a knowledgebase. I like techcommunity site(https://techcommunity.microsoft.com) a lot and Microsoft did a great job in creating the community .It would be great to see the same Site as Standardized template in SharePoint.This would be very helpful in creating a knowledge community, organize information and for user engagement.
