        • Worklflow 2013 should have MORE functionality than WF 2010

          8pproval Workflow functionality is limited. A ItemModertorStusChanged event reciver is missing. WF 2010 has more functionality and hence used instead of WF2013. Even with WF2010 it is tricky to get appovers names and dates into library columns. SharePoint Designer 2013 is unstable and may corrupt the system!

          • upload folders using IE10 and 11

            It's ridiculous that the new expereince cannot upload folders using IE10 and 11 whereas Chrome and firefox could do it. It's a very important feature for us.

            • Date Range filtering in List view webpart

              Date Range filtering in List view webpart - It will so nice to have date range filters OOTB in Date columns like we have in excel 2013/2016. Currently the only way to filter date range is using Filter webparts and it has lot of problems with pagin and grouping in the list view.

              • Ability to Replace the OOTB Profile

                The OOTB SharePoint Profile is not editable in any way. Due to this issue, having the ability to not show the "Edit Profile" link in SharePoint or to have the ability to re-point the "Edit Profile" to a custom application that we can build to add the additional functionality.
                The need for this is important on several fronts:
                1) Compliance - Need to log all changes specific to certain users when the changes are made.
                2) Update source systems - Ability to trap changes made by users and push those changes not only back to the Profile but back to…

                    • Office365 Sharepoint powerpoint function of taking off click on mouse options for transitions do not work properly

                      I have created powerpoint slides that have the on click option unchecked to allow for audio with transitions presentations to work on a desktop application. However, with powerpoint online in office365 sharepoint, clicking on the presentation will go to the next function on the presentation which is against the settings.

                      • Link outlook contacts to share point invite users to share

                        Use your current contacts to share you site. Currently you have to type in emails for users not in your office. Seems so lame.

                        • SharePoint and DevOps

                          I would like to see, how Microsoft sees DevOps for SharePoint on-prem or in hybrid scenario and which toolchain they would recommend, how the interfaces / handover between the tools are working, to support a "deployment a day". Some best practices guide or knowledge, how this has been done in O365 would be nice and I guess it’s a must nowadays…

                          • QuickLinks property of UserProfile is not available through CSOM/REST, need to have it!!

                            We are writing custom service for replacing existing SharePoint ASMX web services with CSOM/REST APIs as part of Infopath remediation for our organization. Currently, there is a method “GetUserLinks” of User Profile service(asmx) which returns group of Quick Links for a given User Profile.

                            We tried getting “QuickLinks” data via CSOM as well as REST API and though the property “QuickLinks” is present in the properties array, data against it is returned as an empty string. We are able to get values of other Properties like Department, Title etc. but only Quick Links is returned as Empty string.

                            To eliminate…

                            • Custom search Refiners - remove or provide a way to go over the 100 values limit

                              currently the limit is hardcoded in SSOM. When we build a custom refinement panel, SharePoint provides us only 100 unique values with no control over it. If we have a big result set and the first 100 unique values are not representative this will lead to refinement values making no sense in the current context. Having some control over the limit and/are the distribution would help a lot for our refiners to make more sense

                              • provide some guidance on how to use the office-ui-fabric-react components in a way that is consistent with the way sharepoint uses them.

                                Hi,
                                I think what we really need is some goidance on how to use the office-ui-fabric-react components in a way that is consistent with the way sharepoint uses them.

                                How do we add a time control to the date-picker?
                                How do we make a panel open when user selects an item in a Details list.
                                How do we add the ellipses to a DetailsList and make it open a context menu
                                How do we make a DetailsList display like the QuickEdit view(if thats what quickedit uses).
                                How do we populate a PeoplePicker from sharepoint.

                                I think a document (or a…

                                  That's been the case for at least 8 years since 2008, according to the following and many other posts:

                                  Please make SPNavigationNode.IsVisible work for both CSOM and SSOM.

                                  • Allow to create custom versions of NewForm DispForm and EditForm

                                    When dealing with nontrivial scenarios, must of my customers usually request that a column can be seen, edited, or not, by a user, depending on the role they have. In a project approval plan, the proposer might capture the plan name, time and budget needed. Then then approver might set a maximum budget value that the proposer can see, but not edit. And so on.

                                    For views, this works well, just hide the column. But then you open display form, or edit form, and there's no way to stop SharePoint from allowing users to change the data.

                                    I know there…

                                      • Hi,

                                        We are using SharePoint 2013 online. I had developed a hello world web part using a Client side development framework using Node and VS Code. It works fine in workbench. When i package the solution and upload it in App Catalog site, the field "Valid App Package" is set to "No". I cant able to deploy my App. Is there any way to deploy my web part in SharePoint site now?. Also please let me know about Classic SharePoint Page.?

                                        Thanks in advance.

                                          I am doing an application with SharePoint OnLine.
                                          I have two sites (A and B), both with Content Organizer. In site B, I have a workflow.
                                          When i pass a document from A site to B site, the workfolw is not triggered. Only the workflow is triggered when the documents is modified, when the document arrive at site, the workflows don't work fine
