  1. Multiple files upload to document library

    I want to upload multiple files to document library in SharePoint.
    During uploading, except for using “Open with Explorer”, is there any other way that a zip file can be auto-unpacked to document library?
    It would be really helpful if it can implement such a convenient function.

  2. disable folder creation on a site collection level

    Site Collections admins should have the ability to turn off the folder settings so that any library created will not have the option to turn on new folders.

  3. Wishing you to implement the hidden feature of [Share]

    I would like you to add the setting item within SharePoint Online to make the [Share] on the upper right on screen invisible especially for non-authoritative users.

  4. 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.

  7. Make it possible to save specified column widths on the SharePoint admin center “Active sites” screen

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint 管理センターの ""アクティブなサイト"" 画面で、任意の列幅を保存できるように機能の拡充を希望する。
    Make it possible to save specified column widths on the SharePoint admin center “Active sites” screen


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターの "アクティブなサイト" 画面では、自身でビューを作成し、表示列を管理できるが、列の表示幅の保存が行えない。
    サイト名やユーザー名が長い場合、文字列末尾が見切れてしまい、都度列幅の調整が必要となる。
    利便性の向上の為、任意の列幅を保存できるよう、機能の拡充を希望する。

    On the SharePoint admin center “Active sites” screen, you can create views and change which columns are displayed, but you can’t save the width of columns.
    If site or usernames are long, they can be cut off, meaning you have to adjust the column widths every time to read them.
    To improve usability, please add a way to save column widths.

  8. Always Open a file in the client app

    The setting allow files to be opened in the client app can be set at site or document library level, but I would like to force this setting at tenant wide.

  9. Disable return to Classic UI if the list has its forms customized using Power app

    We have a classic team site inside SharePoint online, and for a custom list we have customized its forms using power app (the new,edit and display forms), but users can click on Return to Classic UI and view the forms using the classic fUI, so all the customization we applied will be lost (as the classic UI will not have any of the customization we did inside the power app).. so if a list has its forms customized using power app then the user should no be able to use the classic forms...

  12. Customize the contact information displayed in the SharePoint Mobile app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint モバイルアプリで表示される連絡先情報のカスタマイズ機能
    Customize the contact information displayed in the SharePoint Mobile app


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では、SharePoint モバイルアプリで表示される連絡先情報に表示される情報が既定の順序及び項目となっている。 複数の電話番号がある場合、詳細表示を選択しないと携帯電話番号の表示ができず発信までに操作手間がかかるため、管理者側で表示順や、表示情報をカスタマイズ可能とする機能の拡充を希望します。

    At present, the information shown for ‘contact information’ is a set of default items in a default order. If there are several phone numbers, unless you select the “Detail” view then the cell number isn’t displayed, and it takes some extra work before you can get on a call with that number. Therefore, I would like for the items and order of items to be editable on the admin side.

  13. Restore back to v1.0 on the home.aspx page

    Recently had a ticket that got escalated to the SharePoint product group and they informed us that we could not restore to v1.0 on the home.aspx page by design. I would like to get this functionality or ask them to remove the restore button for v1.0 if this is by design as communicated to us as well as provide updated documentation.

  14. Sort and filtering feature for News tab in iOS SharePoint

    サイトごとのソートやフィルタリングの機能があれば、より便利に使用できると考えられるため機能の拡充を希望します。​
    In the News tab of the mobile version of SharePoint, news from multiple SharePoint sites that are using the news are displayed in order of last updated date.
    It will be very convenient if there is a sorting and filtering feature for each site, so we hope this feature can be implemented.

  15. Customization of the width of column lists by administrators

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    管理者によるリストの列の幅のカスタマイズ
    Customization of the width of column lists by administrators


    ■Description(内容):
    管理者が設定したリストの列の幅が、他のユーザーが閲覧した場合にも反映されるようにしてほしい。

    現状では、各ユーザーごとに列の幅を設定する必要があるが、管理者が設定したものが、各ユーザーが該当のリストを閲覧した場合の列の幅として表示されるような機能を提供してほしい。
    I hope the width of column lists customized by administrators to be reflected even when other users are accessing them.
    In the current behavior, every single user has to change the width of column lists by themselves, but it would be better if any changes for the width of column lists done by the administrator will automatically be reflected in their view.

  16. Changing the logo link to main site

    It seems wild that the link behind the logo is not easily customized. We want to redirect anyone that clicks there back to the main top level page not the main sub-site page. Like every other website on the internet works. Including this one.

  17. Teams - Sharepoint Hub-Navigations

    Display of hub navigation sharepoint in teams

    If you add the main Sharepoint online page (https://xxxxx.sharepoint.com/) as a channel in teams via link, the hub navigation of the Sharepoint page is not displayed.

    It is not possible to navigate to other pages because all menus are hidden.

  18. Allow us to use custom font from other sources like Google or Font.com. Changing Banner image should also be available from the portal

    It would be a great help if we could add a custom font from other sources for design that fits our company design.

    While we're at it, banner image just below the URL bar at the top should also be changeable like a normal Sitebuilder or Drag-and-drop site application.

    Cheers!
