  1. Remove the 5000 folder limit on SharePoint sites as it affects the OneNote API in Teams

    On Teams if the Folder limit of 5000 is breached OneNotes will not be displayed.

    The limit is a SharePoint Folder limit

  2. Allow more embed types beyond iframes

    I wanted to embed some yelp reviews onto our new Communications Sharepoint site, but the embed web part will only allow iframe embeds. The yelp embed code comes in the form of a span tag.
    It would be nice if the embed feature allowed more flexibility than just iframe.

  3. Improve PDF rendering of native Office Suite documents

    Sharepoint is unable to properly render some Office 2016 filetype content. Case in point are DOCX filetypes in which Helvetica font is used - the resulting print document PDF has grossly misrepresented point spacing which is unusable - even for proofing.

    Please improve/correct the PDF rendering engine so that Office 2016 filetypes stored in Sharepoint can be viewed/printed within Sharepoint without issue or resorting to content download (uncontrolled) and printed on a client with the Office 2016 app.

  4. Enable Office apps' site list to auto update

    Currently when a user logs into the Office apps using an Office 365 account, they can see the organisation's main site listed within File > Open > Sites - [organisation name]

    Please can you add the ability for this list to automatically add any new sites that are made available to the user to this list. e.g. Currently, I have created a new site but the user has to manually enter that URL into the Open or Save boxes to access. This is not ideal (users will just not use the site) so a way to automate these site lists…

  5. PowerPivot for SharePoint 2016 Bug - Snapshots only generate for localhost

    I found a bug with PowerPivot for SharePoint 2016 and wanted to make sure it was brought to the team's attention. In short, I found that there's a hard dependency on "localhost" by the Excel Services REST API in SharePoint 2016. This means that workbook thumbnails will not generate in anything other than the first web app (if configured a specific way). I posted a blog with the details here: http://info.summit7systems.com/blog/bug-report-powerpivot-for-sharepoint-2016-thumbnails-not-generating. Support case 117021415318755 was created, so hopefully the bug report was submitted through it.

    Thanks, team!

  6. Outlook 2016 - Attach SharePoint File permissions

    When a user uses the "Attach File" in Outlook 2016 and chooses a file on SharePoint online they are asked to allow recipients edit or view to the file. Can we have SharePoint check the permissions of the recipient rather than the sender? Currently if the sender does not have rights to make security changes to a Site, List or Library the sender gets and email with the following:

    "You don't have permission to give others access to this file.
    The message was sent, but the following people might not be able to access the attachment:"

    Sender will get this…

  8. Microsoft Project .mpp files behavior

    Is it possible to get following behavior when clicking an .mpp file in sharepoint online?
    - Open a webviewer for Project files (not possible right now)
    - just download the file.

    Now the behavior is by design as follows:
    - you search for a file .mpp, click on it and a form opens instead of download directly.

    Data from Service Request 616112992836868:
    The file search for filename.mpp gives the search result in the form of link (form) on SharePoint search instead of directly file extension like other excel or document files on SharePoint search.

    As I was able to reproduce…

  10. Bug Fix: SharePoint Store: Sort by Rating

    When sorting the SharePoint Store by ratings, it sorts by the NUMBER of ratings, not the ACTUAL rating.

    So, for example, the "All" bucket currently displays apps with the following rating: 2, 5, 5, 5, 4, 2, 5, 3, 5. If, however, you look at the NUMBER of ratings, they are sorted by: 41, 37, 35, 32, 32, 30, 28, 28, 27.

    I can understand factoring the number of ratings into the sort order. After all, an app with one five star rating isn't particularly qualified. But the expectation when I sort by ratings is that I'm going to see…

  11. Bug Fix: SharePoint Store: Searching for Apps

    When searching the SharePoint Store for apps, the default sort order (by relevance) is not very intuitive, especially when searching for otherwise common words.

    For example, searching for "Document Library" returns two pages of app results without "Document Library" in the title (though, presumably, they have these words in the description or other metadata).

    As another example, one might think that searching for "List Carousel" would have the app named "List Carousel" displayed first. Instead, it's fourth, after "Corporate News App", "Apptex Designer", and "Image Carousel".

    I don't doubt that these are relevant results in each instance. But it'd be…

  13. O sharepoint mais integrado ao onedrive e com mais funcionalidades do office em uma maquina.

    O Sharepoint se mostrou uma ótima saída para meus negócios, e achei bastante repetitivo e redundante com relação ao OneDrive, causando uma certa confusão. Acredito que os dois se complementam mas com possibilidades de existir apenas um. Acredito que o Sharepoint possa fazer tudo o que faz mais as funcionalidades do OneDrive, se complementando onde automaticamente toda a biblioteca do OneDrive estivesse no SharePoint e o mesmo do SharePoint no OneDrive. Gostaria que o SharePoint fosse capaz de funcionar com todas as ferramentas do office, como por exemplo mala direta. Senti falta de muita coisa que so tenho acesso em…

  14. SharePoint compatability

    Dear Monali,

    Thanks for all you do – I appreciate your always consistent follow-up. This is not a support issue, it’s a marketing and technology issue. Microsoft has got to realize that we do not live in a Microsoft world, we need to send documents in different formats. Like in all things MS will eventually fix it and get it right, at least I hope so. But in the interim this issue continues to frustrate loyal MS customers like myself. I am trying to roll out at least 200K users to MS 365 Exchange and Office 201X and then going…

  15. MyMailbox feature

    In SP site owners can activate the site feature MyMailbox. This create an Exchange mailbox within the site with the email address SMO-<SiteName>@tenantname.onmicrosoft.com. If our Exchange Admins turn of the permission to create a InMailbox in exchange the site owner can still activate the feature, see the mailbox created but upon accessing receive an 403 error. it would be much cooler if the actîvation of the feature is geyed out in someone their SP site.

  17. Bring back the Document Information Panel

    Please bring back the Document Information Panel. Customers are finding it harder and the risk of error exacerbated by removal of this tool. It has meant that the process now takes longer when integrating between Office and SharePoint with metadata entry. Its posing a real issue for many SharePoint developers. The workaround provided does not make the process easier at all.

  18. Make Project Server enterprise resource pool federation friendly and independent of Active Directory

    Project Server 2013 Enterprise Resource Pool synchronization people picker requires a local Active Directory connection to look up users and AD groups.
    Please eliminate this reliance on looking up users on a local Active Directory and make the Enterprise Resource pool / management people picker fully claims aware.
