  1. Highlighted Content Web Part - Add AND OR for multiple filters

    Adding multiple filters defaults to OR. In other words adding multiple filters finds more items, rather than finding the intersection of the two filters. You need to be able to specify AND or OR between multiple filters in the web part.

    • 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

      • Introduce markdown syntax for authoring content

        As a systems engineer/developer, I love the office 365/sharepoint platform. The one thing that's stops me from using it for everything is the lack of a productive way to generate content.

        Editing content in the UI is horrendously slow and painful, I just want to be able to author content quickly with markdown syntax, and publish my content/documentation quickly and easily.

        What's microsofts standpoint on this? Am i the first to request this? (i highly doubt i'm the only one who wants this...)

        Cheers,

        Morgan

        • Publish a modern page on a given time

          My users would like the ability to publish a modern page on a given time. Now it is only possible to publish a page directly. Make it possible to publish a modern page on time the user (optionally) enters in a datetime field.

          • Features to Edit Modern Pages

            There is too little control of a Modern Page. You can't control text size and coloring, you have limited format control, and most of all you can't *edit source*. I used this to drop in things like Image Maps or other HTML that there was no way to add in.

              Allow grouping by Content Type within lists and libraries, just like we could in SharePoint 2007!

              • Change page or news page authors

                please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

                • Organize sharepoint sites

                  I'd like to be able to organize the home page of sites i'm following to put the sites I use the most at the top, and group similar sites --for instance, I have several sites that are related to Human resources work, but I only use them occasionally and would like them to put them in a folder or notebook. Instead, they are all listed separately and I have to scroll through them to get to the ones I use more frequently. If there is already a way to do this, it is NOT apparent on the way my sharepoint…

                  • Custom restrictions of file types that user can upload to a document library.

                    SharePoint Online. We really need to set some restrictions of file types that user can upload to a document library.
                    For example, to deny upload file with extension .bmp and .tiff.

                    • Permissions report - inheritance breaks

                      Allow the owners of the sites to view a report of the security of their site. Start by adding a chart of the inheritance breaks of the whole site in one glance. This will become more and more important since you can use the 'Share' button on a file and break inheritance without understanding what you're doing.

                      • Please provide option to customize email templates

                        Please provide option to customize email templates used to send notifications out of SharePoint online like "Send by Email" feature on modern UI pages, sharing notifications to other users. Most organizations do not allow users to install mobile apps. Providing information that is not approved will confuse the users and require constant training.

                          In the new experience, our users still want: 1) to check-in multiple files; 2) open .msg and .pdf files in their client application without having to download it; and 3) in the viewer while looking at a pdf file with an electronic signature, the signature disappears; we'd like to see the signature please.

                          • Requests for correction on behavior to open in edit mode of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business due to specification changes on MC 1

                            As usual, please restore it so that it can be opened in viewing mode by default.
                            Or, add setting items so that you can select edit mode or viewing mode as the default value.

Currently it shows a view with only upcoming and past as text for however many you set it. I would like to be given the option to show it in the same manner that we can in SP with monthly views.

                                A challenge to adoption and use of metadata is getting users to fill in values consistently. There are many scenarios that would benefit from being able to define a value for metadata at the site level and have that automatically push down to all documents/items in that site Examples for the type of metadata that could be set centrally are project name, IDs from ERP systems, commercial sensitivity etc - all of those would be good to filter in search refiners. Content types could deal with this, but use of content types has its own limitations which currently require custom…

                                • Allow lookup columns brought up from different list into calculated columns

                                  Dear Microsoft, this limitation causes a huge impact in our organization - we have been trying to migrate from MS Access into Share Point due to the collaboration it brings, but the limitation of not being able to use "lookup columns" from other lists into "calculated columns" is pretty bad. It affects negatively our ability to compare and do calculation with values from different fields. The whole purpose of MS Access is to run these queries, but since MS shifted to Share Point we thought that was possible as it not. Please do what it takes to make this happen! …

                                      CMIS is the standard for interoperability... Not implementing it in all SharePoint products demonstrates lack of openness.
                                      Please let all SharePoint users enjoy interoperability, not just a fraction of them.

                                        • Branding sharing email invitation

                                          It would be great to do some branding on the sharing invitation e-mail message. For example replacing the Office 365 logo with your company logo and changing the color scheme.
