    チームサイトの [お知らせ Web パーツ] について
    お知らせリストの [リストの設定] から [評価の設定]を有効にし、新 UI 上で [いいね!] に投票後ページを更新するとカウント数が投票前の数字に戻ってしまう。

    クラシック UI 上みたいに [いいね!] に投票し、ページ更新してもカウント数が正しく反映できるようにしたい。

    About Announcement web parts in team site
    When you enable “Rating Settings” in the “Announcements list”- “List Settings” section, click “Like!” on the Modern UI and update the vote page, the total number will strangely go back to the previous number.
    Please improve this feature and make the voted total number displayed correctly like the one in the Classic UI.

  7. Stop breaking Quicklaunch Drag and Drop link functionality

    D&D used to work for the quicklaunch like magic. It was quick and it was easy. Now it's broken and it gets progressively worse. One day you need to edit an item once and then drag and drop will work on it, the next day it's completely broken. I don't think anyone has to explain how garbage it is trying to use the SharePoint backend menus for trying to customize anything to do with UX...

  8. Make the personal information seen function can be managed altogether in Administration page.

    Because personal information can be seen in each function, it is difficult to manage.
    It would be really helpful if it can be managed altogether in one place of Administration page.

  9. JPG file is changing "created time" automatically

    After uploading a JPG file from Internet Explorer, the “created 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 “created 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.

  11. the count of items and paging

    There’s no such function of Paging in Document Library.
    Even if I defined the count of items on modern UI, it can just display more by scrolling the Scrollbar instead of using the paging button.
    It would be really helpful if the paging button can be added like on classic UI.
    And also, when I group items by using collapsed in Document Library, it only can display one group on modern UI.
    It would be really helpful if all can be displayed like classic UI.

  12. Provide an option to integrate skype/yammer

    It would be great if a chatting option would be available (skype / yammer) as an app so that we could collaborate more in real time and teams will know who are online/offline.

  13. Multiple files upload to document library

    I want to upload multiple files to document library in SharePoint.
    During uploading, except for using “Open with Explorer”, is there any other way that a zip file can be auto-unpacked to document library?
    It would be really helpful if it can implement such a convenient function.

  14. Hi Team, There is no option on sharepoint sites for users to ask for read/write permissions if they already have read-only access.

    Hi Team, There is no option on sharepoint sites for users to ask for read/write permissions if they already have read-only access. The only option left to them is they need to inform owner by verbally or email which doesn't sound good

  17. App Launcher on prem 2.0

    I really appreciated you bringing App launcher to on-premises, but you gave us the first generation of app launcher, and O365 is already many versions ahead which allows end-users to customized it and search within. As enterprise we like to embrace the App launcher, but really need the last version that has all the newest updated changes.

  19. Allow External Content Types to be Shared Columns in Document Sets.

    Allow documents to inherit External Content Type columns from Document Sets. I'm trying to integrate CRM with SharePoint, and decided Document Sets were the way to go for each of my clients. I created an ECT for CRM and added it to my Document Set content type. However, I cannot make the ECT columns "shared columns" so I had to create a workflow to copy the data into a text column that is inheritable.

    I have thousands of clients being updated daily, so now I'm resorting to Scheduled Tasks and Workflows to do a job that should be built-in.

  20. Provide customized error message

    When SharePoint cannot talk to configuration database, provide a customized error message rather than the default Runtime Error.
