  1. Freeze column(s)/pane

    Add the ability to freeze columns in list views.
    E.g. first 3 columns are horizontally frozen, the remainder of columns can be horizontally scrolled.
    Basically the same as Excel's 'Freeze Panes'/'Freeze First Column'

  2. Integrate a full breadcrumb in the Suite bar to facilitate navigation in deep collections

    In the top left (in the suite bar), integrate a breadcrumb (like in SharePoint 2010 with the hierarchical folder?) in order to facilitate the navigation in site collections.
    Users are sometime lost when they are browsing a document library and when the ribbon is displayed in the header, they have difficulties to find that they must click the "BROWSE" tab to go back to the navigation.

  3. Add Article Tagging to the Modern News Feature

    It would be great to tag News posts/articles by category (e.g., training, motivational, announcement, etc.). Users could then refine by category to see all articles under that tag.

  5. 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…

  6. Hub Site Content Rollup Filtering

    Add filtering to News and Events rolled up to the Hub Site e.g. allow filtering by a metadata column to selected items are shown rather than all. This would allow news to show in a connected site but only appear on the Hub based on the filter criteria.

  7. Quick Launch Links need to wrap text

    Please change the design of the Quick Launch links in modern pages so that the text is wrapped. Currently the links are hidden behind the page at a certain length, and they do not wrap. It's a very ugly UX and many clients are complaining about it. Oddly, in other views the text is wrapped (for exmaple when you go to the Site Settings page, the link text in the quicklaunch is wrapped).
    Please change!!

  8. Create a File Request

    Need an option to send a file request to external partner. I'd like to build that into a Power Automate Flow.

    Same type of functionality as in OneDrive.

  10. Allow sites to be associated with multiple Hub Sites

    As soon as I saw Hub Sites announced, I thought of the possibilities of creating customized portals for each of our internal groups. However, as I read the documentation, I saw the limitation that a site can only be associated with one Hub Site and that nixed the idea. Each group has its own info, but also there are sites where shared info resides. I saw Hub Sites as an opportunity to bring the shared information and the specific group info into a custom portal for each group. Please reconsider the limitation. If the goal of Hub Sites is to…

  11. Additional Title region options to support bilingual page headings

    To support the language of our indigenous Māori people we need bilingual page headings.

    We currently put English and Te Reo Māori side by side:

    Te arohanga Māori / Māori outcomes

    A more readable alternative would be to have them one above the other:

    Te arohanga Māori
    Māori outcomes

    It’s important that both headings have equal visual emphasis.

  12. Discussion Board Webpart

    I would love to see a webpart that would make it easy to add a discussion board. Yammer is an option but makes it hard to monitor and get notification if you need to watch for multiple discussions.

  13. Change SharePoint Site Sub Domain

    requesting the ability to change
    https://domain1.sharepoint.com to
    https://domain2.sharepoint.com

    business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, re branding etc)

    Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, SharePoint and OneDrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.

  14. Provide options to manage 'Shared with us' Document Library view and link

    A new 'Shared with us' link has suddenly appeared in the Quick launch of all our SharePoint team sites when selecting 'Documents'. This is causing confusion among our users and many have asked how it can be hidden or how they can remove no longer relevant documents from the list.

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to move it, hide it or make it a sub link of Documents (which would be logical) or to remove individual files from the list (unlike in the 'Shared with me' view in OneDrive).

    Can you please make these improvement ASAP. It is not…

  15. Allow change of the external sharing invitation language settings

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    共有をする際に送付する招待メールの言語を任意で設定できるようにしてほしい。

    Allow change of the external sharing invitation language settings


    SharePoint Online / OneDrive for Business の共有を行う際に送付する招待メールの言語は、現時点では招待する側の言語設定に依存する動作となることを確認している。
    外国在住のユーザーに対して外部共有を行う際に招待メールの言語を任意で選択できるように機能拡充を要望します。

    By default, external sharing invitation languages are set based on our side of language settings.
    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow changing sharing invitation language settings to any desired language.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  16. Comment Alerts

    SharePoint site news articles are great with the embedded comments section. I would ask and recommend that there be some sort of notifier/alert to the original comment poster when someone else responds to it. This would help keep conversations going forward. It's rather hard to find your original comments when there are many comment posts.

  17. 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.

  18. Allow Microsoft Flow to be attached to content types

    Add the option in Microsoft Flow to be triggered when a new item of a certain content type is created or modified. This will allow the creation of 1 flow to run a multiple sites which contain a library/list on which the flow needs to run.

  19. Different view when inside a folder

    When using the new library experience, my customers are facing this issue with views per folder.
    The setup is mostly like; Using a document library with several folders for security reasons. The 'All Items' view is used to display the folders at the library root level. When the customer opens a folder, an other view should be shown at that time.
    In the classic experience this configuration can be made by configuring an additional view which is shown in folders of content type 'Folder'.

    Using the modern library, this doesn't work anymore unless switching to the classic experience.
