  1. sort files in search using OneDrive online

    searching for a file online produces gazillions of useless results. If I search for a specific file, I get hundreds and hundreds. With no ability to sort, the search is basically useless.

  2. Create a way to refresh the Organization Assets templates for users

    It would be great if there was a way (powershell even) to force an update to the Organization Assets office documents that appear in end users Office products. At the moment, changes do not seem to refresh for the end user, and there is no way to tell what is happening.

  3. Links in document libraries should work as a link if clicked from a search.

    Within a SharePoint document library, it is possible to add a link to another URL, (document or web page). When this item is returned in a search result the link SHOULD open the document or page the link points to, instead it opens a blank page, (the "contents" of the link). I am not sure if this is by design or a bug, but the action should be chnaged. As an alternative, such links should not be included in search results.

  4. Allow administrators to set "Site Usage" permissions

    Due to Covid-19, we have provided mental health resources for our staff on our SharePoint intranet site. There are privacy implications when all employees can see how many of their colleagues are seeking mental health assistance. We as administrators would like the flexibility to determine who can view “site usage.”

  5. Add a warning alongside the 'Edit URL' link in the SharePoint Admin Centre

    Changing a SharePoint site URL in the admin centre comes with risks. Whilst these are listed in the Microsoft Documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/change-site-address#effects-of-changing-a-site-address), these are not obvious from the admin centre.

    Can I suggest that a warning is added alongside the 'Edit URL' link to advise administrators of the things to look out for.

    I was caught out by the fact that all lists that had been customised with PowerApps were no longer usable after the site URL had been changed. This could not be fixed and so we had to change the URL back again to get the forms…

  6. add "Company Links: next to company logo all communication sites

    add company links to all communication sites, currently not a solution except posting the links on the main intranet page. Users have to go back to the main intranet page to access company links.

  7. 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.

  8. columns' default value based on other columns

    This is a MUST HAVE feature for us to create COMPOSED PRIMARY KEYS in a list.
    Let's say one has a list with Name and Year text columns among others and the PK must be Year + Name. One could then create a new unique value column whose default value would be the concatenation of those 2 strings.

    I see no big issue to implement this since columns' VALIDATION field always allowed to refer other list columns. What to say a mere default value field.

    Being able to have composed PKs in lists is a cornerstone to any SERIOUS use…

  11. make it possible to use "m365 owner" group to set permission

    When managing permissions for a modern SharePoint site you can actually use the m365 members group to add to a SharePoint permission group. But you can not add the m365 owners group.
    The strange thing is when creating a new SharePoint Team site with a m365 group the m365 owners group is set by default on the owner permissions. But when you create your own owner groups you can not use/find the m365 owner group. The m365 member group can be found and can be used.

  13. 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...

  15. "Site Owner" is not changed once we rename Office 365 Group associated with a SharePoint Site.

    "Site Owner" is not changed once we rename Office 365 Group associated with a SharePoint Site. The Site Owner Group name should be consistent with the Office 365 group Associated with the SharePoint Site.

  17. Lock the position of items displayed in hub navigation

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ハブナビゲーションの表示を固定する機能の追加を希望します。
    Lock the position of items displayed in hub navigation


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトを下にスクロールするとハブナビゲーション (ハブサイトのナビゲーションバー) が非表示となります。
    サイトのどこを表示していてもハブナビゲーションが常に表示されるよう、ハブナビゲーションの表示を任意で固定する機能の追加を希望します。
    (ハブナビゲーションが非表示となることでサイト自体の表示枠が増えるというメリットもあるため、任意で固定できる機能の追加を希望します)

    If you scroll down a page, the hub navigation (hub site navigation) is hidden.
    Please make it possible to fix the hub navigation in place so that it is shown regardless of where you look on the page.
    (Since there is merit to having the hub site disappear to increase the visible area of sites, please make locking the hub navigation an optional setting)

  18. Allow creation of new forms in Designer again

    It would be great to have the ability back to create custom forms in Designer again until we've had a reasonable amount of time to learn Power Apps. I support a fairly large site collection and create custom solutions and not having the ability to create custom forms has basically brought my productivity to a halt as I've not had time to learn how to use Power Apps nor know if it will even meet my needs.

  20. Redirect/authorize new site to sharepoint link

    I would like to change sharepoint link to my domain instead using my-domain.sharepoint.com for example:
    https://my-domain.sharepoint.com/sites/help redirect to/accept link from help.my-domain.com/

    In Azure Web App, we can set up to accept different domain. I think it will be great for Microsoft 365 users and admins.
