  3. Notification feature when workflow related problems happen

    Currently SharePoint Online workflow does not give an alert or notification to administrators in case of abnormal failure or process delay etc. We find these problems later and this would give us negative impact on our business.
    It would be great you could implement a notification feature for administrators if workflow related problems would happen. This feature could help us to reduce our business loss and improve SPO efficiency.

  5. Flow to have SPD 2013 and 2010 workflow actions and triggers

    Microsoft flow should incorporate the same actions and triggers as Sharepoint Designer 2010 and 2013 Workflows all combined. This way, the creation of custom workflows in SPD2013 would be avoided, and the experience both for the user and the developer would be greatly improved.

  6. Grant/revoke permissions to an Item through Flow Action

    In many cases logic of workflow requires to assing "case", "document", or any other list/library item to specific user. For time when it's assigned, it shouldn't be available to other users, excluding this specific one.

    Such functionality is available in SharePoint Designer and it's very usefull. It's can be used in many business cases. It's also much better option, then allowing users to manage with per item permissions.

    Flow Action for SharePoint should allow to:
    - grant permissions to current item to specific user or group
    - revoke permissions to current item from specific users or group
    - remove unique…

  7. Combine SharePoint and One Drive

    Make sure sharepoint and one drive actually work before focusing on other products. Google had this figure out years ago.

  8. Simpler Flow for SharePoint Calendar

    Please make the out of the box SharePoint Calendar a recognized list in Flow and make it simpler to set up an Approval Flow on a calendar.

    As it stands now, you have to create a request list or MS Form to route to an approver and then when the item is approved, update the Calendar list. You should be able to do this in one step by setting up a flow on the Calendar list itself.

  9. An option to disable syncing of filters and sorting

    When working on a shared spreadsheet document in Teams we need to use different sets of sorting and filters to be applied at the same time.

    Currently filters and sorting applied by one persons prevents other to do his/her job and vice versa.

    We are working on different parts of the document and each of us needs to see something different at a given time.

    Filters and sorting are modifying the access to the data but not change it and there should be a way to disable the sync for it if needed.

    Working on off-line copies is not an…

  11. Re-link a disconnected PowerApps App or form to the parent list

    PowerApps Integration - as well as Create an App and Customize Form, add an option to the List View PowerApps control to re-connect an existing PowerApps app or form that has been inadvertently disconnected - find related PowerApps in the tenant that are using the specific list as a primary data source and offer them as options.

  12. Calendar Recurring Events and Flow

    Please find a way to support recurring events in a SharePoint Calendar for Flow. The event web part is not a feasible replacement for the traditional calendar, and the most basic workflow I can imagine is a "notify participants of event". This functionality is pretty universal for calendars.

  14. Notification message to members of approval group is creating confusion when one of the members complete the common assigned task.

    <One of your tasks was canceled and deleted. You do not need to take any further action on that task.>This notification message to a group of approvers of the workflow is confusing, causing anxiety to the requester and approvers in the work group when one of the approvers complete the approval task. An update is urgently needed to reduce confusion and discomfort. Please update the notification message to <The task has been completed. You do not need to take further action on the task.>

  15. Lookup Limit 12 !!! Is this a joke? (Sharepoint Online + Power Automate)

    I can't understand there is a lookup amount threshold of 12 columns/fields per list. Also, on-site SharePoint (server) allows you to change this limit to the content of your heart. We can't touch this setting on the Sharepoint Online site.

    THIS IS A VERY LITTLE AMOUNT OF LOOKUPS !!

    I think this threshold should be lifted to minumum 30 columns. Please, you need to take action until 1 November 2020.

  16. About improvements to behavior where SharePoint 2013 workflows are not displayed to users with the Read permission

    [閲覧] 権限のユーザーに SharePoint 2013 ワークフロー が表示されない動作の改善について
    About improvements to behavior where SharePoint 2013 workflows are not displayed to users with the Read permission

    ■Description(内容):
    サイトに対して[閲覧] 権限を付与されたユーザーに、特定のリストに対してのみ投稿権限を与えて、Share Point のワークフローを実行しようとすると、「新しいワークフローの開始」画面に Sharepoint 2010 ワークフローは表示されるが、 Sharepoint 2013 ワークフローが表示されない。サイトに対する "アイテムの承認" の権限」を付与することで、2013 ワークフローが表示されるようになることを確認しているが、その他のリストやアイテムを更新させたくない場合には使用できない。
    サイトに対して[閲覧] 権限のユーザーが、Sharepoint 2013 ワークフローが開始できるように改善してほしい。

    When I try to run a Share Point workflow by granting post permissions only to a specific list to a user who has been granted the Read permission for a site, the Sharepoint 2010 workflow appears on the Start New Workflow screen, but the Sharepoint 2013 workflow does not appear.
    Verify that the 2013 workflow…

  17. Restrict access to powerapps

    Powerapps is positioned as a frontend for sharepoint. A major feature of frontends is providing data validation and security. Sharepoint cannot be configured to only allow access via a powerapp. This makes powerapps effectively useless for a lot of workflows because sharepoint advertises direct data access to each person with access to the powerapp, and thus a simple bypass to the power app.

  19. Document change alerts: every N minutes

    For the document alert please make an option to give updates every N minutes. Because you have updates immediately on all changes which generates too many emails, and then once a day, which is not enough when there is active work on the document. I'd like to set an alert for every 30 min, or every 60 min. That way I don't have a flood in my inbox and at the same time I am frequently updated on the progress. Thank you.

  20. Postpone Retirement of 2010 workflows

    Our organisation hasn't got the bandwidth to rebuild so many workflows in the time left.

    Is not just 2010 workflows that need replacing, but all 2013 workflows that call simple workflows that create docsets or copy data between lists - those can be very complex.
