  1. Show recurring events in the new Event Web Part

    Hi,

    I have the new look Sharepoint online and I notice when creating events in the Events Web App, you don't have the option to configure as a recurring event.

    If you create the event and then go site contents > events and manually drill into the event and setup recurring, the event no longer shows up in the Events Web Part.

    I think being able to setup recurring events is basic functionality for any calendar so can we get the feature added/fixed?

    Regards,
    Andrew

  3. Disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" for a Document Library

    "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" is a new feature in the last few months. When it was in Public Preview, there was a PowerShell command to disable that feature:

    "Set-SPOTenant -DisableAddShortcutsToOneDrive $true"

    This command was announced in MC217339 of the O365 Message center. Based on my interaction with support in Case 22963247, that PowerShell command is no longer available now that the feature is no longer in Public Preview.

    I would like the ability to disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" again. My environment is about 50% Windows 10 LTSB (1607), and when users "Add Shortcut", it syncs the Document Library to…

  5. Add to disable 'Send by Email '

    Provide option to remove or disable the 'Send By Email' button on all Modern Site Pages. It's a compliance risk for some firms.

  7. Instead of having default sender as no-reply@sharepointonline.com, Tenant SharePoint app should have facility to use specific sender address

    In hybrid environment lots of customization always in demand. One of the case is having specific sender email address for mass communication via Shrepoint Online app to the respective Tenants users hosted in onPrem AD environment.

    Therefore, its good to have app level custom setting to achieve the above

  10. You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items

    You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items.
    This error appears even for the colleagues who is the owner of the survey.
    Would be good if the owners can subscribe to alerts irrespective of this privacy settings who can see the responses,

  11. Why can't the URL to a SharePoint Online site be changed to a new domain name?

    Unfortunately with Office 365, if you merge with another company or change you company name, you have to start all over with a new billing account and manually migrate email and shared documents on SharePoint just to change a domain name. Many companies merge or change names. This should be easy.

  12. Connecting Communication sites to office 365 groups

  13. Copy/Paste Images into Enhanced Rich Text Columns

    Right now you have to upload an image to SharePoint before you can add it to an Enhanced Rich Text column. I'd love to be able to copy/paste images. For example, I have a Support Ticket list, and users try to copy/paste screen shots to help me troubleshoot. However, when I get the email, the images are stripped.

  16. Enable addition of all list apps in the list preview webpart in modern site page

    At present, only custom lists are enabled to be viewed in the list preview webpart of the modern site pages. It will be great, if other lists such as Announcements, tasks etc. are also enabled for this list preview webpart.

  17. SPO Information Management Policy does not support custom fields

    We noticed that the SPO Information Management Policy is not taking effect on the custom fields created for list. It seems that it only supports the pre-defined fields, which are not the ones that we want. We followed the steps in “Create a policy for a list, library or folder (location-based retention policy)” in https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-and-apply-information-management-policies-eb501fe9-2ef6-4150-945a-65a6451ee9e9 and it is not showing our desired results. Please consider supporting the custom fields.

  18. Modern Sites Quick Launch Navigation please allow custom width

    Modern Sites Quick Launch Navigation please allow custom width
    currently the Left Navigation doesn't allow expanding the width and therefore the words are cutoff due to the font being different size to the classic site. Also the words do not wrap so it leave the links looking confusing when they are similar words.
    Classic Experience view shows this correctly. Smaller font and with word/line wrap.
    Modern Experience view is opposite, font is too large and no word/line wrap.

  19. JPG file is changing " Modified" time automatically

    After uploading a JPG file from Internet Explorer, the “Modified” time will be displayed the time which in the image’s properties for a while.
    But after one day, when I confirm the file from “Open with Explorer” in the library, the “Modified” time of the JPG file is overwritten by the file’s uploaded time.
    But office files and PNG files do not cause this issue.
    It would be really helpful if the JPG file can also be remained to the time which in the image’s properties by “Open with Explorer” like any other types of the file.
