  1. Set Metadata for multiple files

    Set Metadata for all files that are being uploaded. Currently when a user uploads multiple documents the metadata has to be set afterwards.

    • Add ability to route documents into Document Sets based on metadata

      As the title said, I would like to see the capability to create content organizer rules that can route documents into specific document sets based on metadata on the document and on the document set.

        • Introduce support for taxonomy infrastructure via SharePoint REST API

          At the moment TaxonomySession and other taxonomy infrastructure-related resources and endpoints in the REST API are not supported.

          Ideally it would be great to add support for every existing CSOM namespaces such as Publishing, Taxonomy and etc. in REST API, basically the same way as it is implemented for User Profiles.

          • Provide a complete API for Term Store / Term Group permission management

            Since may 2016 release of CSOM it is possible to add Term Group Managers and Contributors programmatically using CSOM. However, removing managers or contributors is not possible.

            • Make Term set more flexible for administration and usage

              - Import terms to existing term set
              - Allow import of labels, synonyms/custom properties
              - Allow the selection of where in the structure you should export XLIFF you may not want to export the entire term set for translations.
              - Allow multi select or terms when filling in metadata fields vs. clicking each term individually to add them

              • Enable Export of Terms from Terms Store Manager

                This would make it possible to share taxonomy with users and edit before it is reimported.

                • Remove the 2000 term limit for managed navigation term sets

                  Given that this was touted as the way to go for catalog based sites, it's a woefully small limit.

                  We've got our WWW site on SP2016 and we're already at about 1500 terms in our navigation. A couple more years and we'll be banging against this limitation.

                  • Add option to inherit metadata from folders

                    While Document Sets may work well for some scenarios, it doesn't work for ours. In an instance where multiple folders full of documents are uploaded to a library, you can then add metadata to the folders using the Quick edit feature. However, the metadata does not cascade down to the files within the folders. It is a very time-consuming, manual process to open each folder and add the metadata to all the files within the folder. Unfortunately our use-case requires the use of the folders. We have yet to find a suitable third party tool or Flow solution that meets…

                    • SharePoint Term Store MMS - Navigation Option Enhancement

                      Identified that Customer is facing operational challenges while leveraging the SharePoint MMS for navigations. The limitation is quite simple where there is no option of opening a desired link on new target window. This was reported as a major limitation as the link needs to point to a 3rd party site, where the customer doesn’t want the users to lose the context of current site upon clicking the link. Though it’s a simple limitation adds real value when integrated to the product itself. In addition this is an universal change which adds value to SP MMS.

                      • Increase Content Type Hub Publish Interval

                        Really need this interval to be much more frequent and an option to re-publish on demand. Can't wait 30-60 minutes or more for testing and an update. We also don't want to go back to an on-premise installation.

                          • Cross Site Collection Global Navigation

                            We need a way to implement global navigation that spans many site collections. Need a simple list of 6 or so links that will be consistent across all sites. I don't really want to turn the publishing feature on as it complicates content editing for most users.

                            • Allow the custom property 'names' to be defined at the term set level and inherited by the child terms

                              Currently custom property names have to be defined for every single term that you want to use them on, as well as the values that relate to the property. If you have a lot of terms in a term set then this takes a long time and is prone to human error (e.g. typos in custom property names)

                              Ideally, you would be able to set the custom property names at the term set level and allow these to be inherited by all terms within the set. This way the terms only need to have their values updated and if changes…

                              • Finer-grained permissions in the Term Store

                                Currently the only way to secure the term store is by *Term Group.* It would be fabulous if that could change to accommodate security at the *Term Set* level. The reason for this is simple: we have a large site collection with lots of sites. Each of those sites has a different group of contributors. If we open up the site collection Term Group to one group of contributors, they can see and edit all the other sites' terms because they're all accessible within the site collection. However, we already have term sets that pertain only to specific sites, so…

                                  When using a "PIN Term with Children" to place items in a site collection navigation from a single source (global navigation), the pinned items should auto update if the source term set is updated. Currently you have to delete and re-pin all the site collections.

                                      • Use GUIDs for Site Columns Instead of Names

                                        I would like you to alter how site columns are handled so that I can create custom new columns with the same name as the base columns, such as Department and Location. GUIDs should be used to keep track of the columns, and not by the actual name when used to create the column.

                                        • Termen/labels eerst goedkeuren voor gebruik

                                          Het zou handig zijn wanneer nieuwe termen moeten worden goedgekeurd door een bevoegde gebruiker.
                                          Dit om wildgroei aan termen/labels te voorkomen.
