  1. 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.

  2. Pinned term auto updates

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…
