  1. Insert customer's built Office templates online

    Currently the customer’s private built office templates (for example word templates for a new document) are stored locally.
    Using this way, it is not able to open and use internal templates via mobile devices.
    The goal is now to store those templates not locally but on Sharepoint Online, so every user will definitely use the internally branded Office templates to avoid internal compliance issues.

  2. 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. Service / Feature Outage log / report history available to all end users requested

    Requesting Microsoft Support improve Enterprise end user experience by providing a public ticket feed for known / reported service related issues. This would minimize duplication of reporting to Microsoft about known issues and save the end user time researching the problems and/or reporting the issue. T

    This would also improve your customer's experience by reducing the number of in-house organization tickets and inquiries when a service related feature is down or not working as intended.

    This feature would allow end users to link or subscribe to a public platform service report history log so they're able to review current events…

  4. 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.

  7. allow users who have override list behaviours access to settings menu

    We have created a custom permission level to allow certain users to override list behaviours and enumerate permissions in document libraries, however they do not have access to the library settings menu in order to be able to click the manage files with no checked in version, yet can access that from a direct link to it, which is hard to create as a link as it needs the GUID of the library.

  9. Bring back design features in SharePoint 2019

    My company just upgraded to SP 2019. In my opinion, it is a downgrade considering many features I use to create and design pages are missing. PLEASE bring back the ability for us to design pages using content editor, edit source page to add html/code and where is the Content and Structure to easily move/copy files? I feel like SP 2019 is a very dumb-down version of the previous SP version. It's very limiting and the "modern pages" are so blah. Heck, I can't even add a table with cell colors. It's so ugly.

  10. hide feedback button per site collection

    Feedback button connecting to UserVoice can be disabled for the Tenant. I would like the option to disable the button on a per Site Collection basis.

  12. Add a default column which can be customized

    I would like you to add a customizable Created By column to modify user name who originally created the list, because the creator could be a delegate user. We need another default Created By column in the SharePoint Online list to show the original creator.

  13. Display FULL list of SharePoint sites

    The frequent/suggested sites are all well and good, but this fails to display ALL SharePoint sites, forcing users to go to Teams to get the site name and enter it into SharePoint search in order to find the site (so it can be followed).

    It would be great if the See All option really meant that, vs. See All suggested/frequent.

  16. 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

  19. Alert Me option for Folders in New OneDrive Version

    Alert Me option for Folders has been disabled in New Version of One Drive. This option is available in Classic version, which allows to send a notification to the users on any changes made to the shared folder. This option if enabled with Ribbon will be more interactive and the overall appearance will be similar to any Microsoft application.

  20. Read only columns

    I have implemented a sharepoint solution that requires that specific fields in a sharepoint list be edited at intervals. This has created a need to be able set certain fields in my sharepoint list as read only so they cannot be edited. The ability to set fields as read only would make solutions that we develop with sharepoint even more robust.
