    • Change default Site Members Edit rights back to Contribute

      There is a fundamental flaw in the permissions model in modern SharePoint team sites and Microsoft Teams. Site Members have been given Edit rights which allows them to delete or edit apps on the site. That is the role of the Site Owner. The Site Members must be given Contribute rights, (like it was in SharePoint 2010).

      • Add advanced options to share files in modern view

        The change made to Sharing permission in modern view of SPO lists/library doesnt allow you to access advanced options. This implementation makes the portal looks more user friendly but removes admin features basic for the way of work in some organizations

        • Search results for lists with hyperlink columns should open the hyperlink in the column, not the list item

          If you create a list of links to consolidate them on one page, then search for those links, the search results opens the list item rather than the link in the list item. It would be more helpful to open the link that was saved.

          • The address of linked documents in Excel is changed when moved to SharePoint library

            As we have been moving Excel files to a SharePoint Team Site Library from on-prem storage, we noticed the address of any linked documents in a spreadsheet migrated to the library is changing from a drive letter designation to a web address https: location. We mapped the same drive letter to the library and the folder structure is identical to the previous on-prem location yet SharePoint, Excel or perhaps OneDrive is changing the address. Further more, it is not changing it accurately and eliminating two portions of the path that represent the team site name and document library name! We…

            • A mechanism for mapping drives to SharePoint that does not rely on Internet Explorer

              We are frustrated by the fact that we are forced to use Internet Explorer as a way to invoke WebDAV to map network drives. The prerequisites of having to be logged into SharePoint via IE11 prior to mapping or accessing a mapped drive to SharePoint is clumsy and unreliable. It also requires too much dependence on the user to be mindful of these prerequisites. We would expect, in the days of Win10, that there is a more direct linkage between the OS and SharePoint so we don't have to rely on the increasingly problematic IE11 which is barely supported by…

              • Fix Get-SPOSiteGroup when run by SharePoint Admin to not fail on some personal OneDrive sites.

                Fix Get-SPOSiteGroup when run by SharePoint Admin to not fail on some personal OneDrive sites.

                It succeeds on some personal OneDrive sites, and fails with access denied on others.

                Microsoft support told us to raise the issue here:

                > The feature of the command: Get-SPOSiteGroup for the personal OneDrive sites to work only for the Global Admins is by design.

                > Please raise a user voice if you want this feature to work for the SharePoint Administrator as well from the below link.

                  • In the new SharePoint Admin Console send email to Office 365 group owners

                    In the new SharePoint Admin Console, it would be really useful to be able to send an email to the owners of Group Sites in the same way that it is possible to send emails to primary admins in classic Team sites.

                    • Automatically remove Hub Site associations if the Hub Site is deleted

                      Currently, you can delete a Hub site, but the site still appears in the list of Hub site associations that someone can choose from. Even if you delete it from the Recycle Bin, it still shows up. Rather than try to remove it via PowerShell (which apparently still doesn't work well and/or is impossible if you no longer have the site ID), I would like SharePoint Online to just remove the Hub site from the association list if the site itself is deleted.

                      • Provide a 'site classification' property with optional banner/policy

                        A common business requirement is to identify sites that contain specific types of information. Providing a text property would enable improved management, search, and maintenance of sites.
                        If that property could then be linked to site policies, even better.
                        if that property has an optional banner text that is displayed, even more better.

                        Uses of this could include, but not limited to: Special events, protected information, archived sites {read-only},

                        There is a work-around posted at on the dev-solutions page at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/implement-a-sharepoint-site-classification-solution

                            Hi All,

                            I have a requirement wherein "pop up should display for the SSRS report which takes more than 2 minutes to run". We have SSRS 2016 environment in SharePoint 2016 Integrated mode.

                            We need to display a message in the pop-up that " This report is taking more than 2 minutes to run so you will get the report on your email once it is completed" with "OK" button, once user clicks OK, page should get closed and user will get the report on his/her email after the completion. This is only applicable for all the reports which are…

                                Why can't you stop changing arround on everything all the time, and stop bloating the solution Down With all those Things only a few needs. It's impossible for small businesses to keep up With all the graphical changes, feature changes, and once in a while changing back again!!! You should seiously consider a corporate Version (lot of features and lot of changes all the time) and a small business Version (fewer features and With a slower change rate).

                                    It would be great if we could embed our Hoopla TV channel on our main SharePoint site. I am unsure why we are not able to do this; we are able to embed it in our Teams channels. Is this something that is forthcoming?
