  1. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. I found a bug for sharepoint 2013

    Hi
    if you select Oslo layout ( that is a very beautiful layout) and you want add parameters in any list, you must use share point designer but this (List View Tools ---- Options--- Parameters ) tab are not show.!!!

    I found out quite by chance, I have a test site with Seattle layout and when i want to create parameters, I was very comfortable.

    for more details show this link:

  7. 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.

  10. 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?

    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).

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Show Category When Adding App on Site

    The App Catalog already allows us to specify a Category, similar to what we can with Web Parts. These categories are however only surfaced when directly browsing the Apps for SharePoint document library inside the App Catalog. It would be nice if the same category would be visible for end users adding an App/Add-In to their site. This is would be similar functionality to the public SharePoint Store.
