  2. Option for shorten sync folder name

    Hi,

    About this suggestion:

    For example, my communication site name is: "[ GPG ] General Policies and Guidance". GPG is the code for the set of documents. So when I sync the Document Library to my computer, the name of the folder becomes too long for me. The name of synced folder is: "[ GPG ] General Policies and Guidance - Document".

    It's could be nice if there is an option for shorten the sync folder name. So I can customize the name of sync folder to something like: "GPG - Document"

    Thank you!

  4. Template of anything

    I am running into issues not being able to make the site that I want into a template. You can only template some types of sites? And you can't duplicate sites? It needs to be easier to easily replicate any type of site.

  5. I would like to see a preview option before publishing the site on sharepoint site

    I wanted to see the site that I customize to have a preview option before publishing/ making it public. Because its really hard to see and edit if the pictures are on the correct position or size.

  6. Keep site name across other languages

    Please don't change site name for other language localitazions.

    We have noticed that when someone with different default language opens site within our intranet, that site has name "Communication site" in that particular language.
    It doesn't make any sense why it need to be like that. We know that we can change it in particular language settings in web settings. But when we have site named "Intranet" we would like to keep it for all users within our company.

    So we believe it would be best if everyone sees original site name (whatever language) and if it will not match…

    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.

  10. The planner web part on a SharePoint site should be resizable based on the amount of tasks in a plan.

    Currently, the SharePoint planner web part has a default length which results in empty space on a SharePoint page if there are not enough tasks listed to populate it. This web part should be re-sizable based on the number of tasks in a plan.

  13. Ability to chance the no reply address to something that includes the companies domain name.

    Ability to chance the no reply address to something that includes the companies domain name. Or something to make it unique. We would like to be able to write Mail Flow rules based on this traffic, but we are unable to do this because our traffic is not unique.

    Others agree with this:

  14. unsecured

    It would be very helpful if we could embed unsecured sites/URLs in the sharepoint o365 iframe section. We have numerous "in-house" web apps/locations that we would like to publish, like we do with the local sharepoint server.

  19. Insert customer's built Office templates online

    Currently the customer’s private built office templates (for example word templates for a new document) are stored locally.
    Using this way, it is not able to open and use internal templates via mobile devices.
    The goal is now to store those templates not locally but on Sharepoint Online, so every user will definitely use the internally branded Office templates to avoid internal compliance issues.

  20. Service / Feature Outage log / report history available to all end users requested

    Requesting Microsoft Support improve Enterprise end user experience by providing a public ticket feed for known / reported service related issues. This would minimize duplication of reporting to Microsoft about known issues and save the end user time researching the problems and/or reporting the issue. T

    This would also improve your customer's experience by reducing the number of in-house organization tickets and inquiries when a service related feature is down or not working as intended.

    This feature would allow end users to link or subscribe to a public platform service report history log so they're able to review current events…
