      • Survey Options

        Surveys need to be more user friendly. The 'Task' and 'List' ribbon is missing for survey responses. It would be great if survey responses had similar features as lists/tasks. The need of workflows is high and also the option of filling the incomplete surveys, later in time. It would be great to have these things in Surveys. There should also be a text box for survey page to fill out instructions, as we cannot add a web-part in it. Please remove the options which are disabled/ not working, rather than keeping it in as greyed/unusable form.

        • O365 Variation Setting : Programmatically

          Hi Team,

          • Virtual Directory similar to _layouts

            Allow administrators to configure virtual directories (similar to _layouts) that use a document library as it's source. This will allow companies to store Site Assets that are still accessible from any site collection without knowing the exact location. This could also allow developers to hot swap between v1 and v2 code without updating references.

            • provide the option of zooming images on the Blog site

              provide the option of zooming images on the Blog site. Currently the images inserted in the blog page come out very small and are not readable. Hence additional script needs to be added to zoom images.

              • SPO Allow to deploy site columns / content types / list templates across tenant

                SP onPrem allows you to deploy farm solutions to so deploying site columns, content types and list templates across an entire farm is easy. A solution to do this easily in SPO would be very nice!

                  • 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.

                                    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.
