  1. Do not make changes on the fly to features whilst in mid upgrade

    It seems that when there is a system problem, more often than not the issue is caused by an update that is applied that then needs to be rolled back.
    I understand that this sometimes happens when during the implementation of an upgrade in live, if there are issues or changes being requested, these may be applied mid upgrade. This should never happen, the decision should be to roll back the update for all tennants, make changes and then restart the upgrade, or the upgrade should continue as is with a view to make changes once complete that can then…

    • SP Designer 2016 release

      I think we need a new SPD release like a slipstream version, without 10+ updates and 2GB+ disk space requirements for the updates. It would be nice with a click2run installer which works if the Office 365 ProPlus (2016) already installed.

        • Support for Broken Links - OOB feature

          It is very difficult to find the broken links in a SharePoint webpage without using any 3rd party tool(limitation exist). It would be helpful if there is any OOB SharePoint feature which displays or highlights the broken links on the page (or) the link which on click redirects to page not found.

          • Allow the CSOM to download files larger than 2GB

            Calling file.OpenBinaryStream() (and then ExecuteQuery()) on any file that is larger than 2gb in size throws "System.FormatException: Invalid MIME content-length header encountered on read.".

            We can download the file correctly using the REST API directly, but it is a bit more of a hassle than to use the CSOM.

            ILSpy reveals that this is most probably coming from Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Mime.ContentLengthHeader.ctor, where the content length header is parsed into a signed 32 bit integer (where a value of >2gb will overflow).

            • Allow Conditional Coloring/Configuration of Gantt Chart Bars Using SharePoint in Browser

              Some users suggest using HTML and javascript injection to change the colors of the bars based on the value of another attribute (by Task Assignee, Status, Type, etc). I feel like this is a lot of work for something that seems obvious to support. Organized people are most likely going to be using the Gantt Chart view, you should provide better organizational tools to support it :)

              • It would be nice to have (easily) the review palette into the Quick Access Toolbar. Now I need to Pop Out the e-mail if I want to use it.

                As many language user (4...) I use to do some mistakes and I like to review some of my e-mails.

                To do that I always need to pop up the replied or forwarded e-mail.

                It would be nice to have (easily - I am not able to do it right now) the review palette into the Quick Access Toolbar. Now I need to Pop Out the e-mail if I want to use it.

                Thank you!
                Xavier

                  • Infopath improvements

                    For Person or Group Fields, there is no option to write a rule to validate if its empty or do any kind of validation. It can either be required or not required. Need a fix for this.

                      • implement mechanism to map identifiers

                        The content migration in SharePoint allows to export/import data from e.g. one SharePoint server to another. It does re-link identifiers such as GUIDs to new identifiers on the target location. However, this does not work for many identifiers. For example, data in lookup fields gets broken easily if the lookup list is not in the content migration package.

                        It would be useful that hooks (or event receivers) are provided, allowing custom code to
                        a) (on export) receive the identifiers that are exported on export (so that a dictionary can be built)
                        b) (on import) receive identifiers in the content migration…

                        • Hide Promoted Links you do not have permission to

                          When some users do not have access to a web-part I think the web-part should be hidden from them, and not display an error like -

                          Error
                          Web Part Error: Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource. Correlation ID: 4448809d-60ad-2000-2142-32dad96f83ed.

                          The user should not see what they do not have access to.

                          • bring back the "merge forms" function for InfoPath forms libraries.

                            I first created forms libraries that use InfoPath so that information entered on the forms could later be cumulated. Under SharePoint2010 this was accomplished using the "merge forms" command. SP2013 removed this functionality, which renders my forms libraries essentially useless--because the information cannot be accumulated for analysis. When hundreds of forms are involved, the "merge" capability of the InfoPath filler application isn't up to the task.

                            • Make the name of the current Composed Look a property of the Web object

                              Currently there is no simple way to pro grammatically get/set the current Composed Look for a site. The Composed Looks list available from the Site Settings page shows all the looks available, but the only way to determine which one of them is the current one is to tediously compare every item in the list to the one with the name "current", which is inefficient and error prone because if there is a background image as part of the Composed Look, the value in the background image field is changed when the look is chosen by the user so the…

                                    Please leave the alert template alone...with details or allow us to specify which fields we want included in the alert; we have business processes that our internal teams follow based on the alerts. The new proposed template that includes no details of the changes is a big problem for us. We have had the old template restored two times this year but we were just told that the new template will be deployed over the next month...Please leave our alert template alone!

                                    • Enable application of storage quotas via CAM Provisioning API.

                                      In the current site collection provisioning API (Tenant Admin API subset), it is not possible to specify quota template to be applied to the site collection. Equivalent exists in server side API. This currently leads to a lot of high-maintenance/process workarounds via Powershell and/or additional pre/post provisioning scripting and/or Central Admin actions for farms that use fine grained storage quota models.

                                      • RESTful or CAML support for selecting distince items. I

                                        It is imposible to select unique values from a list through CAML or the REST API. This limitation requires a custom server-side code to return unique values, something only possible on-premises.

                                        • Stop SP from changing the WPQ values on a page.

                                          I'm using Javascript and CSS to manipulate webparts or styles within web parts by targeting the WPQ div value.

                                          However, when I delete or close another web part on the page some of the WPQ values change which is annoying as I have to go back and change the CSS or JS code.

                                          Can SP be stopped from changing these WPQ values please?
