  1. Add friendly date format

    On SharePoint "Region" settings page, we have the "standard date format" which follows "Locale" setting...

    ...but we need a "Friendly" format option too, same like "date type" column so that users can have consistent date format.

  4. Creating Personal Views (Not Public Views) - User Friendly Suggestion for the Webpage Experience

    Document Library:

    As a user who will need to have many shortcuts, the process to create views is not seamless. The intuitive methodology would be to set filters, then save view somehow.

    Current Status Quo for personal views is either creating a public one, then templating a personal off of it, then deleting public

    -or-

    Going through a very menu intensive and manual process with high precision (keying exact Enterprise Tags and such). I would hope to have a user friendly interfacing for creating these views as well.

  5. Allow user to switch back to New Experience

    When the user chooses to "Return to Classic experience," there's no way to change back to New experience, even via the advanced settings for the Library which offers the option to the Library designer. (It won't even change back for the Designer.)

  6. Error when adding a templated "document" content type to a Library in New experience

    I created a Document Library in SPO, replaced the Document CT with a custom one that includes an Excel template (.xltx) as the template.

    In New experience, the template document is not shown, but several default office document types are, along with the Link option.

    In Classic experience, ONLY the the template document shows. This is the desired and expected behavior of New experience as well.

  8. Build an easier way to create folders with specific permissions

    I would love to be able to create a quick step to add the same subfolders with the same permissions to any folder in a document library.
    For example:
    I have a new employee: John Smith, and (via a third party app) a folder is created for him in our HR database. All HR has access to this root folder.
    Our HR person goes in to his folder and creates 2 new folders, but these folders need to have different permissions than the parent.Only she and the Director should see these folders. So she needs to break the inheritance, and…

  9. Custom tile not available

    365 office Custom tile not available/ not possible to customize because it requires Exchange Online mailbox assigned. Like to add a SharePoint tile but unable due to the above reason.

    Why should users be forced to subscribe to Exchange online to enable tile customization?

    Top Link Bar missing on new UI.

    In new Site Content and Document library experience Quick launch (left navigation) is showing not what is configured in Site Settings -> navigation. It looks like there are no way to control what it shows.

  12. Use custom master page on new document library and Site content experience

    Custom master page is not used in newly introduced Document Library experience and Site content experience. If we are using custom master page and then user goes to Site Content or Document Library it looks like he has end up in different place (because it looks differently).

  15. Control File Types per Tenant

    Ability to control the blocked and allow lists for Office 365 SharePoint and OneDrive document libraries for tenants.
    Reason: Local networks we have FSRM to control file types such as .exe files etc, but with moving to the Cloud with SharePoint etc. we have lost control of this and users with mapped drives to their OneDrive and SharePoint areas can access these banned files...

  16. How to create online surveys with SharePoint?

    Creating an online survey is quick and easy when you use SharePoint. You can create the survey in such a manner that people can respond to the survey questions with their own words, enter a number, choose from a dropdown or use a checkbox/radio button, or even pick from a rating scale. https://www.cloudappsportal.com/sharepoint/support/create-online-survey-sharepoint

  17. For SharePoint Site Mailbox App, please add the ability to set a default CC email.

    Right now, when we create a new email message, the CC email address has to be entered manually in the SharePoint "Site Mailbox App". Some users can be forgetful and not entering the project's email in the CC box; we just want a quick way in the "Options" panel to set this email by default, so that a copy of the email will always be sent to the project's Mailbox.

  18. People Picker

    There's no way to sort or change the order of the nodes in the left column on the People Picker user interface. When I add a trusted provider, I have no control over managing the order.

  20. Proide a [NOW] item in view filters for the current time.

    We often create items in lists or libraries that we want to show based upon the ending and starting time. Using [Today] in a view is just not good enough. WE need a [NOW] indicator
