  1. Multilingual Communication Sites

    Including support would be needed.

    My client has a legal requirement for using software, intranets that is Bi-Lingual.

    Communication sites are really great way to building new Intranets quickly but this is a critical feature for adoption.

    We are happy to share that we are actively working on it. We will be sharing more details about the plans at the SharePoint conference in Vegas.

    Here is the MS road map item

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=50217

    Here’s the session we’ll share more details.

  2. Modern experience for Task lists

    Half our lists are not normal lists but task lists. Often both normal lists and task lists are combined in themed processes with lookups.

    It would be really great if the task lists can also switch to the modern experience. It is getting really annoying now to have a mixture of classic and modern experience within the same site/for a single process. Specially for the end user there is need in consistency. Also to introduce the modern experience properly it is much better when a total site can be changed at once and not only a few apps.

  3. Month view for calendar on the page

    We would like the calendar display apps (events and group calendar) to allow a "month" view. We love the events parts and like that they link to a group calendar but would love to visualize this in a month or week format

  4. Customize SharePoint Email Alert Templates

    Allow the site collection admins to customize the template for the standard SharePoint alerts. The current email alerts are confusing, provide too much information to the user and are out-of-date style-wise.

    Allow the admins to add common fields, i.e. "Title", "Created By", and include an image and hyperlinks. Also allow adding a CSS style sheet.

  5. Modern calendars

    Modern pages, lists and libraries look great and all fit together nicely.

    The other main thing we use here is the calendars which are still looking classic, which means inconsistencies in the quick links layout as well as other things which viewing a calendar.

    I can't find anything about when Calendars are going to be modernized.

    Hopefully soon!

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion and voting on it. We have two events/calendar solutions in modern pages today. The events web part has card based event tiles, powered by events lists. You can roll-up events from multiple sites into one page, but there isn’t currently a wall calendar view.

    Alternatively you can select to leverage a group calendar, and pull all of your events (including recurring events) from Exchange. This too is a compact card based view.

    While we understand a wall calendar view is desirable, we’re not working on it at this time.

  6. Bulk check-in/check-out

    I need to be able to check-in or check-out multiple files. I'm not able to do this currently, when selecting multiple documents.

  8. remove recycle bin from left navigation for Visitors

    Recycle bin is not relevant for visitors resp. page viewers (users with read permission to the site.) Add the ability to remove it from navigation.

    People who wants it can always add it as a standard link to the menu.

  10. Prioritize large list management in SharePoint Online

    Large list management has to become a priority. Even with the most thought out and careful planning, inevitably something will come up and you need to make a change to a list or library. Once that goes over 5,000 items, it becomes impossible to do anything management related to the list, which actually hinders it's use. Users can continually add files, but you can't do anything to help them.

    This has to be addressed in some fashion, whether it is allowing APIs like REST and CSOM to bypass this restriction so they can perform basic administrative operations or giving us…

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

    We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…

  12. 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.

  13. Ability to set 'Tile' or 'List' as a default view

    Please allow libraries to be show in List view by default.

    I don't mind tile view, but when I got to all the trouble of setting up columns and mandatory fields and it displays tiles by default for each new user, all the power of the document library metadata is hidden.

    This happened for me when the library contained only PDFs

    Thanks for the feedback. It would helpful to know the specific scenarios where users aren’t able to get to the content they need.

    We’ve observed that with sites shared publicly, or sites attached to a public Office365 Group, it’s not very meaningful to see every SharePoint Site a user can access, because there could be a huge number, most of which the user isn’t interested in.

    Is the focus here more like “show me all sites I’m a member of”?

    There is one comment that says search isn’t working, please open a support ticket for that.

  15. 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…

  16. Remove Get the mobile app and Feedback buttons

    Please allow site administrators to remove or hide this button as we don't want our internal user to send feedback to microsoft instead of internal support team.

  17. Overview of applied content types

    Content types are an essential part of SharePoint. One issue that has been around since SharePoint 2007 is the absence of an overview of all applied content types. Why is this important? Try to delete a content type and you get the message it's still in use. Good luck finding out where. This is very frustrating and time consuming. That's why I vote for an overview where you can see where the content types are applied.

    A consolidated admin view of where published content types are being used is still being evaluated, but for folks voting for the related use case of “better creation and management of content types” please refer to site designs (aka.ms/spsitedesigns) as a modern mechanism to create/apply content types to site libraries. We are also looking at how this could be more easily supported from hub sites.

  18. Add a decent photowebpart

    Add a photowebpart that shows the content of a picture library in thumbnails. when you click a thumbnail, a popup will appear with the photo in a "normal size" (as available in _w hidden folder) and than you can browse the photos with next/previous buttons, with an option To show the picture in original size.

  19. Add documentlibrary setting for opening in view or edit mode

    Previously the default behavour was to open in Read mode, and then actively change to Edit mode - with the latest updates the default is to open in Edit-mode.
    This causes Word Online to save the second the user opens the document, and thereby rendering the "Edited by" and "Last edited"-fields completly useless, as it in effect just shows who opened the document last.

    It also causes users to make a lot of accidental changes to documents as well.

    Since users are complaning about both the default behaviours, why not add a setting that let's the admins control how files…

  20. Calendar

    Please Add a Full Calendar Web Part for the Modern Pages that optionally includes the overlay selection feature, date picker, and toggle between day, week and month. I am not sure why this has not been addressed. Maybe pause on the Bing Maps integration that is rarely used, and work on the regular stuff that has been around for years and is used frequently.
