  2. Better and more control over SharePoint Look and Feel

    I think it would be good if we can do real customisation on color of header, menu, hover menu, quick launch, top navigation of SharePoint sites without having to deal with master page and css. Current Look and Feel feature is just too limited.

  3. Show more then 3 items in Team Site calendar

    I know some javacscript for onprem users takes care of this but we are in a tenant and can't adjust the limit.

  5. Allow the ability for users to download files shared with an anonymous link

    When you choose to get a link and share anonymously, with Office documents, when the user clicks the link all they can do is view it. I sometimes need to share files with external users where I don't want them to be able to edit it, but at least download it for their own reference. Adding this as an option would be really helpful. Currently, if I want users just to have view access to files and be able to download them, I have to use Dropbox.

  6. Add minor versioning functionality to lists

    Lists only allow for major versions. Major versions signal that the information or data is "production-ready," but in lists, that is not always the case. For example, the default "Announcements" list that comes with SharePoint Online could easily involve the drafting of an announcement that isn't ready for prime-time, because it hasn't been reviewed and/or approved by another author. With minor versioning, SharePoint authors could keep the draft version from being seen and inadvertently consumed by site visitors until was ready for publishing, at which point it could be set as a major version.

  7. Improve sync relationship between FIM and SharePoint

    I experience this issue occasionally regarding security groups that are members a SharePoint permission groups:

    The sync relationship between Forefront Identity Manager (and possibly other user management applications) and SharePoint stops working for a particular security group if the display name of the SG is changed, even if the alias of the SG remains the same.

    The workaround is to remove and re-add the SG to the SharePoint permission group following any updates to the SG's display name.

    This issue can cause significant headaches because the people who maintain an SG are often not the same people who maintain a…

  8. Get rid of the link to pages when you open document libraries in the new experience.

    When opening a document library in new experience, a link appears in the left hand navigation that directs you to the site pages folder, it is called 'pages'.

    There is no way to delete this link and it makes the navigation look untidy.

  9. Type as you find filter in modern list UI

    We need a "type as you find" filter on the modern list UI. Preferably one that covers all columns and one that is per column The drop down filter per column is actually quite useless if there's more than 5-10 unique entries in the column.

    Then it ought to be a "type as you find" form instead.

  10. Add annotations in OneDrive for team site docs

    New annotations in OneDrive only works with docs in OneDrive. When accessing team site docs via OneDrive the annotations feature do not work. Please bring this feature to team site docs as well.

  11. ...fix some video portal issues...


    1. You can set subtitle options using Chrome or IE, but you can't view subtitles in IE.


    2. When you upload a video, it's default name is the filename, but this can be changed. If you want to overwrite this video with an updated one, you can do so ONLY IF you remember what filename it was uploaded as originally. How do I find that out? It's not shown anywhere.


    3. I uploaded a new video. The option to change the thumbnail was not present. I went to a previous video where I did change the thumbnail, and saw the option. I went…

  12. Office 365>SharePoint store: Sorry, this app is not supported on your server.

    Our Office 365 tenant appears to have fallen prey to a recurring bug (I see it repeated several times over previous years when I search) where many apps on the SharePoint store suddenly and without apparent reason become "not supported" when they've been installing fine previously.

  13. exce

    Improve Excel when editing online versus using Excel. Currently either important functions are missing (too many to list) or it works slowly. I usually can only go 5 minutes before I 'edit in excel'. That's all well and good, but editing in excel turns off the multiple editors function.

  14. Depricated Report Indicators Still Visible in SharePoint Online UI

    SharePoint List Report Indicators/Dashboards have apparently been deprecated but still are available apps to add with SharePoint Online - this is confusing to customers who see this as a visible option when the feature does not work (Confirmed by support in case number SRX616071993868890ID).

    I received no notification of this feature being deprecated.

  15. Integrate Azure RMS with sharing features

    SharePoint Online has a feature by which you can invite a user to view a document, whether the user is internal or external. Expanding this feature to enable an Azure RMS-protected document to be shared externally, by adding the invitees to the rights of the document, would be tremendously convenient. In general, integrating RMS with SharePoint is becoming an increasingly-requested feature by many customers.

  17. Item Picker 201 limit

    Allow for more than 201 items in the item picker when associated with a content type/external content type with more records. It is making SharePoint unusable for our solution.

  18. Change the OneDrive limits of those I want and need to share documents with; need to extend sharin to people outside my organization.

    I deal with a lot of people outside of my organization, and need to share PowerPoint and other documents with them. OneDrive Share with everyone does not allow me to share with anyone outside my organization. Our corporate server lets us "share" documents within our organization. Change this to allow us to share with anyone we need or want to share with.

  19. fix the new doc library experience

    Dearest Microsoft - you just released yet another update to SharePoint that I didn't see anywhere on the roadmap...

    The new document library experience looks great! Good job. Next time, maybe find a way to clue in your partners first?

    Nintex, Infowise, DFFS, consultants, etc - all of these entities have custom forms for lists and libraries that apply special rules to enforce security settings. Many just use javascript on the forms themselves. All of this is worthless in the new experience because users with edit access can edit the properties in the information panel under properties.

    I suggest you…

  20. Worflow - Can't save to shared drive, only to Cloud

    With SP 2013, we have a workflow action to copy to a shared drive location. However with SPO, there is only a copy to a Cloud option. I recognize that the cloud is the current 'it' thing, but there is a LOT of use on shared drives still and being able to copy to this has value.
