  1. Concierge icon

    You should have a concierge icon listed with the other icons at https://portal.office.com/Catalog?add=sub&adminportal=0 so that we can tell which Office 365 we are getting 24/7 Concierge support with.

  2. Provide support for SSL and IP Address bindings in IIS

    Provide full support for IIS bindings - i.e. include SSL and IP Address + SNI options. It is slightly ridiculous that these settings must be managed outside of SharePoint and influence the logic of web application creation. Bring web app creation up to date with the versions of IIS SharePoint is running on.

  3. Adjust the SharePoint Srvr licensing model (& its requirements) to be compatible with making available an ISV product on SaaS business model

    The current licensing model isn't friendly at all if you're thinking on making your SharePoint product available as a Cloud SaaS.

    To go Cloud, this must needed change must occur so that the SharePoint (and its ecosystem required products) licensing model to fit well with SaaS business models without an obscene entry cost in licensing that crushes your initial investment as an ISV.

    We have this product that we developed, and it requires SharePoint Server.

    We’ve been considering for some time now the possibility of making our product also available as a SaaS.

    However, as SharePoint Server is a requirement…

  4. Improve content types and content type hub-functionality

    Content types:

    Enable content type-based default values in addition to site column-based and location-based default values. Allow farm administrators to specify which takes priority in cases of conflict (and make them function reagardless of if the user creates a new document from the ribbon, uploads it or drag-and-drops it into the library)

    Enable all and any sharepoint columns to be displayed, and when applicable edited, from within the document (not just in the ribbon). For example give us the option to automatically propagate your new unique farm-wide document ID-based url in the actual document content. would be fantastic for users…

  5. Content type hub should also propagate workflows

    Currently, they only way to provision a workflow to site collections is to use the exported wsp-files from SharePoint designer. This however requires custom scripting to be enabled.

    For on prem you may use a farm solution but this is not applicable to SPO.

    If this was handled by the content type hub there would be no dependencies on the old feature framework.

  6. Allow concurrent editing of excel workbooks in the client application

    All co-authoring should be consistent. Co-authoring in Excel (the client) would have huge value. The web editor really does not work for power users.

  7. Targeted Stretched Farm Support

    SharePoint supports a 1ms/1Gbps response time between SharePoint and SQL Server. Not all Service Applications require this level of latency. It would be great if the PG could release specific numbers for specific Service Applications (e.g. UPA must be 1ms, Word Automation Services 100ms, and so forth) or allow for variance for latency support, e.g. 1ms - 15ms fully supported.

  8. Workflows Cross Site LookUps

    The Ability to look up information,create list items across Sites , subsite and Site Collections using Out the Box custom Workflows in SharePoint Designer.
    Would be very handy and also include a new Infopath Form Creator built into the Workflow creation screen to similar to how we can now use visio designer in 2013 Designer.

  10. Currently the maximum number of unique security scopes set for a list cannot exceed 50,000.

    Currently the maximum number of unique security scopes set for a list cannot exceed 50,000. Is there a plan to set this limit higher in SharePoint 2016?

  11. Property on user object to show if AD account is disabled

    When an employee quit his/her job we disable the user`s AD account. This should be reflected onto the user object, so we can use REST queries to filter out all "old" users.

    As far as I know, today, there is no way of retrieving all "active" users from siteusers.

  13. SharePoint 2016 - provide licenses for MIM Synch Service and documentation for running two way synch and enrichment via BCS

    While testing SP2016 I wondered what will be the path for users currently using the buitl-in FIM version. Apparently you can use MIM synch service. But please add to SP2016 a license grant to use MIM synch service and proper documentation how to configure. Otherwise the removal of FIM (which for sure had its issues) w/o adequat substitue will just be a degeneration of the product.

  14. Add SharePoint 2016 IT Preview to Azure

    On Microsoft Azure, you can stand up a SharePoint farm with just a few clicks. Please add the SharePoint 2016 IT Preview to this wizard so that IT Pros can test it out without requiring local server hardware.

  15. Restart investments about WCM

    We would like more investments about Web Content Management features. SharePoint 2016 cannot lost his positioning for Internet facing websites and competitors improving digital marketing features.

  16. Autodiscover for OneDrive

    Have a DNS based autodiscover setup like Exchange/Workplace Join/Skype4B that can use a CNAME to point to the server URL. Then when users click the sync button on other libraries a link can be added to their OneDrive library that tells the client to also sync that content. This would make using OneDrive simple and easy for users like Dropbox and remove the need for typing URLs into the client.

  18. Automate fixing Alert notification time when Daylight Savings Time starts and ends

    When Daylight Savings Time ends or begins all alerts already in the system get sent an hour earlier or later. A workaround for this is to use PowerShell to touch all alerts in the system to trigger an update to the cached notification time in the database. I think it'd be nice if SharePoint could automatically do this when DST starts and ends instead of me having to manually run a script twice a year.

  20. Started Services on Server

    Filter Started Services on Server to only be visible as another "view" for "Started" instead of only "Configurable" "All" as the two options. Multiple Application and Web Servers make it challenging to find out what services are running with all the "Stopped"
