  1. Drag and Drop attachments from Outlook

    Would love to be able to drag & drop email attachments directly from Outlook into a document library. Currently I have to drag them to my desktop and then drag from my desktop into the doc library.

    • drag and drop images in wiki pages and blogs

      other CMS systems already allow this functionality. Instead of having to save an image somewhere and then upload it to SharePoint, let me just drag / drop images on the wiki and blog pages. Would be ideal for screenshots

      • Add News Article Metadata

        Add News Article Metadata

        When adding a news article (site page) on Communication Sites, through the new interface, it would be great to be able to populate additional metadata for the page.

        This could be along the lines of tagging pages with keywords for searching through articles or adding custom metadata.

        • 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.

              • Allow a site owner to kick a user out of a file opened in Excel Online

                If you have multiple people co-authoring in Excel Online, there are times when you need to open the file in Excel - typically for advanced formatting, etc. If someone has accidentally left the file open in their browser, there is no way to force them out and keeps the file locked. Although not always intentional, it can create a major headache by not being able to simply kick/close out that particular user from editing.

                  • 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.

                    • Page templates for Modern Pages and Libraries that allow removal of elements and reuse

                      Allow page authors to design page templates right in the Page Edit UI. Page edit would allow them to remove the Title Banner, Logo, left navigation, Edit link, New Link, Share Link, Search box and save the template for reuse.

                      Page Templates would support web parts and new developed custom JS controls for things like custom navigation controls.

                          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.

                        • 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.

                          • Ability for administrators to disable office online chat

                            We have shared class notebooks setup enabling classes of 30+ students free range to chat to each other. As you can imagine teachers are finding this hard to manage, especially when they're off task inside of a program where work is also taking place; making it incredibly easy for the sneaky students to hide their off topic discussions!

                            Furthermore the chat logs are not saved anywhere - this really does open up a host of child protection issues where cyber bullying could take place within the school without any logs of it ever happening.

                            • Remove banner and header title from modern pages

                              I would like to be able to remove the header from the new/modern "Pages". When I add a new page on SharePoint online now, I love the new page except for the top header image and text which takes up about a 3rd of the page. It's wasted space and not aesthetically pleasing.

                                There is currently a 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields. This restriction impedes ability to save Urls that might include hash values are long query strings. Some examples where this is really common are links to SSRS reports (with parameters) and Search urls that contain refinements.

                                • Allow changing the width of columns when adding sections to a Modern Page

                                  Looks like you can't change columns' width when creating a new section in a Modern Page. Being able to chage it would be very useful. My classic page, for example, has a section containing 3 columns, where the first and last ones have their width set to 25%, while the central one has width set to 50%. In Modern Pages, I can only have 3 columns with the same width, 33% in this case.

                                  • Support Themable CSS Without Having To Customize The Master Page

                                    For light-touch customisations, we simply want to use SharePoint Themes and also add our own Themable CSS to sites.

                                    Unfortunately the only way to add a Themable CSS to a site is add a CssRegistration control to the Master Page referencing the Themable CSS file. We want to avoid having to customise the master page simply to add a Themable CSS link.

                                    It is contrary to current Microsoft guidance to modify the master page unnecessarily, and in doing so, in the best case we lock ourselves out of any future enhancements as SharePoint evolves that are dependent upon an upgraded…

                                        • 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!
