  1. Document Links that work like Symbolic Links

    We have a desired company policy: A document lives in one place. Don't copy. Use versions.

    If users comply, we eliminate uncontrolled growth of "duplicate or similar" documents through copy and rename behavior.

    But there are frequent needs to have the document available in different contexts than can be provided by its master location. Giving different levels of access to different groups of users is one reason. While it can be overcome by assigning permissions directly, it's often easier and more natural to just have the file in the right location (Example: a specific Team channel).

    We want the ability…

  2. Right-click a folder in a SharePoint DocLib to open in new tab

    It would be really, really handy to allow the right-click action for a folder in a SharePoint DocLib to open the folder in a new tab, just as Windows Explorer does. This is already supported on the navigation sidebar/topbar links, but if I am a level down in the folder tree it would be much more useful to be able to right-click a folder at the same level and open it directly in a new tab.

  6. durable links

    Durable links should be valid even after any action like rename doc/rename lib/move across webs/move across site collections....and so on.
    There was a lot of promises but now Durable links are not better then Document ID. They are worse.

    Make it useful not useless. Lets make documents durable links really durable. I don't care how the technology is called. Me and our customers really need solid technology that is available already on different platforms. Why you don't you use search to be used if document is moved across site collection? Why only Microsoft documents reflect Durable links? Why there…

  7. (Bug) Event Description: Editing a link in the description of an event using the Link >> URL field silently removes leading characters.

    I put a link in each event I created to that specific event. I did that so users who add the event to their calendar can return to the event later, e.g. to check for changes to location. I copy/pasted the description from the first event to subsequent events. I missed changing the ID on one and needed to edit the link.


    1. Create an event with a link called "This event", with URL to that event (e.g. https://nio365.sharepoint.com/sites/NITalkMigrationSupport/_layouts/15/Event.aspx?ListGuid=e7a966ac-53ab-42ef-aadc-ece942c75ded&ItemId=1).

    2. Go to the All items view of the event list.

    3. Click edit on the event to be corrected.

    4. Click on "This…

  11. Add Manage Multi-Factor Authentication link to New Admin Portal User View

    Add the link for "Manage Multi-Factor Authentication" to the User Account tab in the New Admin Portal. The old Admin Portal has the link and it is very convenient when managing a new user, assigning licenses, and enabling MFA.. I've included screen shots of the Old and New (Preview) interfaces below.

    Old - https://gyazo.com/a1c86b533c232a623ef469604c6f0265

  12. Link to document library folder

    Allow folders to be included as links from the content page. Most of the links i put on our front page are links to folders so i have to manually do it rather than using the internal search to find the folder. If the folder gets renamed it should auto correct the link

  16. Customer wants to configure the "Default link type" sharing as "Restricted link - Only specific people can open this link".

    "リンクのコピー" の既定値を "既存アクセス権を持つユーザー" に指定できるようにしたい
    テナント単位とサイト コレクション単位の共有設定で、"リンクのコピー" の既定値を "ダイレクト - 特定の人" 、"匿名アクセス - リンクを持つユーザー" 、 "内部 - 組織内のユーザーのみ" に設定できますが、"既存アクセス権を持つユーザー" に設定することはできかねます。

    "リンクのコピー" の既定値を "既存アクセス権を持つユーザー" にも指定できるようにしたい。

    Currently customer can only select below, but no "Restricted link - Only specific people can open this link".
    Direct - specific people
    Internal - only people in your organization

  17. Direct link to document

    Give the ability to retrieve a direct link to a file like was shown in the callout. If you want to use a html/txt file as source in a Content Editor webpart, you have to manually type the url because the generated links using Get a Link won't work.

  18. Secondary Recycle bin link

    When in the recycle bin the "Secondary recycle bin" link is hard to get to as it moves further down the page as more items load. I would suggest it being a link that doesn't move as Items are loaded or put a link to it on the toolbar.

  20. Change "Copy Link" button to copy the "Document ID link" (the one with docidredir.aspx)

    It used to be that when you selected a document, and clicked "Copy Link" (in a site where the Document ID feature was enabled), that you would get the "Document ID Link" (the one with docidredir.aspx). Now when you click the "Copy Link" button, you get the so-called "durable" link. The problem with the durable link is twofold:


    1. It is only a durable link for Office documents. For example, if you move a picture file to another location in the library, the link will be broken.


    2. The durability is limited to the library wherein the document is contained. If you…
