  3. Add js minification and css bundling for assets used in master page like it works on fly in CQ5

    page load time and http requests made by page should reduce to greater extent. page load time of sharepoint is always high due to lots of JS and CSS files loading. Though caching is implemented the page load time never shines. Other WCM Tools like Adobe CQ5 are very good in minification of JS and CSS files which make page load drastically less.

  4. Allow the ability to develop Custom MinRoles for Scripted Installs that can work with Complaince features of MinRole

    There may be a need in the Larger scale Farms to develop Customised MinRoles for integration with other LOB systems.

    Could we get the ability to develop not only new MinRole Configurations but also build out Health Analyser Roles and Compliance Rules to adapt with MinRole.

  5. Currently the maximum number of unique security scopes set for a list cannot exceed 50,000.

    Currently the maximum number of unique security scopes set for a list cannot exceed 50,000. Is there a plan to set this limit higher in SharePoint 2016?

  7. Show Category When Adding App on Site

    The App Catalog already allows us to specify a Category, similar to what we can with Web Parts. These categories are however only surfaced when directly browsing the Apps for SharePoint document library inside the App Catalog. It would be nice if the same category would be visible for end users adding an App/Add-In to their site. This is would be similar functionality to the public SharePoint Store.

  8. In SharePoint Online Admin, would be good to see the timer job frequencies with your tenancy. During development or configuration

    In SharePoint Online Admin, would be good to see the timer job frequencies with your tenancy. During development or configuration, there are specific tasks that are done in the background i.e. Full Search Crawl, Variation Timer Jobs.
    They do not appear to be consistent with the documented SharePoint 2013 default timer job frequencies.

  9. Property on user object to show if AD account is disabled

    When an employee quit his/her job we disable the user`s AD account. This should be reflected onto the user object, so we can use REST queries to filter out all "old" users.

    As far as I know, today, there is no way of retrieving all "active" users from siteusers.

  10. Add direct upgrade paths from previous versions (2010 and 2007) to Office 365

    Most on premise customers have not upgraded to SharePoint 2013. Traditionally upgrades are only supported from the previous version. However, if we want people to adopt Office 365 we are going to need to make it easy to migrate from 2007 & 2010

  11. Provisioing Site Collections using CSOM

    Enhance the CSOM API to allow for Site Collection Provisioning, where the quota values can be specified and the content database specified. The Tenant Admin API with correct configuration allows for on-prem. Site Collection provisioning however, this needs enhancement as the functionality for large scale Site Collection creation is insufficient.

  12. Containerizing SharePoint server roles

    The ability to have SharePoint server roles be hosted in containers. Running multiple SharePoint containers in one or more Windows Server OS instances. Having the same base file system so that when you apply patches to SharePoint, they all get automatically pushed to each SharePoint container on that server. The ability to move SharePoint containers to the cloud (Azure).

  14. Site Collection Auditing in its own database

    Currently, Site Collection auditing logs to the Content Database that the Site Collection is currently on.
    It would be nice to have an optional setting to log to its own database or say the Logging database.
    Furthermore, ability to turn on auditing across multiple site collections and consume audit reports in a meaningful manner to Business users.

  15. SharePoint 2016 - provide licenses for MIM Synch Service and documentation for running two way synch and enrichment via BCS

    While testing SP2016 I wondered what will be the path for users currently using the buitl-in FIM version. Apparently you can use MIM synch service. But please add to SP2016 a license grant to use MIM synch service and proper documentation how to configure. Otherwise the removal of FIM (which for sure had its issues) w/o adequat substitue will just be a degeneration of the product.

  17. Restart investments about WCM

    We would like more investments about Web Content Management features. SharePoint 2016 cannot lost his positioning for Internet facing websites and competitors improving digital marketing features.

  20. NoSQL Document Stores

    Make it plug and play to separate Site Collections/Content Database from user content. Enable storing content in NoSQL sources without additional development or BCS effort. Make this the preferred document storage to scale.
