  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. prevent to install farm solutions

    For a sp16 farm prevent installing farm solutions by a check box in farm settings, and make it not too easy for one admin to change his mind for this.

  4. Manage who has access to the recycle bin

    More options to manage if and where the recycle bin is displayed and who has access to it. Separate permissions for the recycle bin. Maybe an option to hide it from the user interface
