  1. Allow Admins to customize Document library folder icon from library setting

    Currently there is no out-of-box way to customize the folder icon, it will be nice if allow user to choose custom folder icon in SharePoint directly from library/site setting

  2. Custom Help Collection: navBarHelpOverrideKey as page metadata - On Prem

    The Custom Help Collection, available only on-premises, is an excellent idea that is horribly executed. Odds are it was left out of the Online experience because so few installations have taken advantage of the feature.

    However, so few installations use this feature because of its horrendous implementation.

    Currently we can use javascript to set the navBarHelpOverrideKey, which sets the default product and category for the Help button.
    - Recommend adding the product and category as metadata to the Page content type and baking in the override key based on these data elements

    Other major issues that would need to be…

  3. Make the content which filled in column displayed completely.

    *English follows Japanese

    モダンUI環境で各列に記入している内容をすべて表示させたい。
    クラシックUIだと列に長めの内容を記入すると記入している内容が全部表示されているが、モダンUIだと内容の一部しか表示し切れないため、
    モダンUIからでもクラシックUI上のように記入されている内容を全部表示させたい。

    まだ モダンUI環境で列の幅を固定させたい。

    Make the content which filled in column displayed completely.
    If you fill long content in column, it can be displayed completely in Classic UI, but only displayed part of it in Modern UI.
    Please improve the feature in Modern UI and let it can be displayed completely or make the width of the column fixed.

  4. Remove banner from sharepoint public website

    Could you please help to "Remove the banner" that is showing on sharepoint online public websites.

    Started on Nov. 30.
    The banner is hurting the business.
    We know the sites are going to be discontinued. That isn't the point to add the banner. We have other websites and domains.

    If you could maintain the professionalism to remove the banner as clients do not need to see or know that.

    Thank you

  5. Bloquear sobreposição de eventos/agenda/Calendário Sharepoint Online

    Forma de bloquear sobreposição de eventos já agendados em calendário do sharepoint online. Atualmente é possível agendar evento mesmo já com algum registro na mesma data / local / horário no calendário sharepoint. Ideal seria o Sharepoint não deixar salvar o novo evento com as mesmas informações ou informar a sobreposição de eventos antes do salvamento realizado pelo colaborador.

  6. Map SharePoint customised fields in a task list to Outlook tasks

    If I want to have the priority in a SharePoint task list calculated from a combination of other fields, I wish I could map it to Outlook tasks priority so the right priority is also visible on any Outlook client.

  10. Better Ease of Customer Use

    I have monthly Office 365. I am becoming familiar with SharePoint and occasionally enjoy the part time of becoming fluent in use of Office 365. Occasionally the monthly subscription leads to; why are you being difficult without asking for money? Although, integrating what should be limited by accessibility at most. Pages are not capable of an embed code working. Though descriptions state about web pages and types of embed codes. My practice webpage would not except a Microsoft Teams web address within the same Office 365 account. Not that I am not happy with other available websites for website creation.…

  18. 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...

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
