  3. Make the hyper link open with another tab in the browser

    The hyper link in a list web part on the site home page would not be opened with another tab if it’s the URL of SPO site and inserted in the Hyperlink column of the list. It would be great the link could open with another tab page in a browser.

  4. Quick Links WebPart

    The quick links web part only allows for links to open in a "New Tab" - Very Frustrating. We should have the option to stay within the same navigation.

    SharePoint Online のサイトにあるリンクを開く際、トップリンクバー及びサイドリンクバーだと同ウィンドウ、同タブに表示されますが、業務の効率化や情報の混乱を避ける為、既定でリンク先の表示を別ウィンドウにできる機能が拡充されることでより効率的な業務が可能になります。
    また、トップ及びサイドリンクバーに限らずページ内に埋め込まれたリンクに対しても別タブではなく別ウィンドウで表示させるような機能の拡充を希望します。

    When opening links on SharePoint Online sites, the top link bar and side link bar both open in the same window and same tab, but in order to make work more efficient and reduce confusion over different bits of information, it would be better if we could set links to open by default in a separate window.
    Also, we would like to be able to set all embedded links in a page to open in a separate window, not a separate tab, regardless…

  12. Pls fix right click

    Why the hell would you not allow right clicking to open in a new tab? How could you mess up links so badly? The whole god forsaken internet is built upon links fuck damn it. I mean come on, I have to navigate to a tiny little button, left (not fucking right) click, pull mouse down to "copy link", press ctrl+C or copy link (AND AT THIS FUCKING POINT I'M BOILING LIKE A FUCKING KETTLE, THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN TWO CLICKS), open new tab (/OPEN A NEW DIMENSION DOOR TO HELL, AT THIS POINT THAT'S EQUAL EFFORT), ctrl+V (FUUUUUUUUUUU), Enter…

  13. How to change link of "Open in SharePoint" of file tab?

    How to change link of "Open in SharePoint" of file tab, if I want to link other SharePoint site?
    Is it possible to change link of default SharePoint site after I make new team site, not to add new tab ? I want to use already exiting SharePoint site as default SharePoint site, but the site owner is not me. If I create option "create a team from an existing Office 365 group", it's only allow my SharePoint site.

  14. Organizing Quick Links

    It would be really nice to have the Quick Links section organized like the Our Sites section is. Tabs that you can easily see and navigate through.

  16. Add Files option to Add attachments in Teams

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams での "添付ファイルを追加" について

    Add Files option in Add attachments


    Teams にて Planner をタブで追加しタスクを作成した際、タスクで "添付ファイルを追加" をクリックしても "リンク" と "SharePoint" の項目はあるが、"ファイル" がない。
    エクスプローラー などから添付ができるようにするために "ファイル" という項目を追加してほしい。

    We created a task by adding Planner as a tab. In Add attachments, there are only 2 options: Links and SharePoint, but not Files. Add File option to Add attachments in Teams so that we can drag it from explorer and such. Allow direct file attachment to Planner Tasks in TEAMS

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. Easy file navigation and drill-down: follow link in same file viewer

    When a file contains a link to another sharepoint file, it should be possible to open the link in the same file viewer window as the original document.

    This would make it easy to use sharepoint and its file viewer as a documentation and process database where end-users can navigate and drill-down easily.

    In that way, one could create an easy click-through set of Visio-process charts or documents, where linked subprocesses or subdocuments (which are also saved in the same document library) directly open in the same window.
    The links are set once by the administrator while the user can…

  18. Regarding sharing on Stream

    *English follows Japanese

    Regarding sharing on Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Stream で動画をアップロード時の "詳細" 画面にて [共有] をクリックすると、[リンク]、[埋め込み] タブが表示される。発行された動画にて [共有] をクリックした際は、[リンク]、[電子メール]、[埋め込み] が表示される。共有後の動作に差異はないため、表示されるタブを統一してほしい。
    ​Currently, clicking the Share button when uploading videos on Stream will display the Link and Embed tabs. But clicking the Share button on issued videos on Stream will display the Link, Email address and Embed tabs. As there are no differences in the actions that occur after sharing, I hope that the tabs displayed can be standardised across the board.
