  1. Option to change the opening action for files associated with List Item

    It would be great if you could change the file-opening action for files associated with List Item.
    We would like the action to be changed at user-level.
    Currently, when we upload files to the item body or to the list for SharePoint List Item, the following scenarios will occur:
    1) Files which were uploaded to the item body and if it can be opened in Office client, will be opened in the local client app when it’s downloaded.
    2) Files uploaded as attachments will be opened in Office Online.
    We would like users to select actions by themselves.

    • Column headings that sort

      The admin page /_layouts/15/online/SiteCollections.aspx is super helpful. It would be even more useful if one could click on the column headings to sort ascending/descending.

      • The permission for per items on Document Library

        I would like to control the permission of items by setting through Document Library rather than controlling permission on per items in SharePoint Online.

        • Create user profiles in SPO for shared mailboxes (EDU tenants)

          Our university is an EDU tenant of Microsoft, and we have a lot of shared mailboxes (as unlicensed users, sync'd from AD > AAD > SPO).
          From time to time, SharePoint site admins wants to use such mailboxes to be the central contact point for enquiries etc, and the best way to do it is to put it up as the "page author".

          However, because it is an EDU tenant, unlicensed users do not get user profiles created in User Profile application (UPA), and show up as "external users" when they are entered, or email address is entered in people…

          • Get "full read" for a specific group or specific users on all SharePoint Online sitecollections.

            It should be nice if the option is back to get "Full Read" permissions on all SharePoint Online sitecollections. At the moment there is no way to facilitate this like the SharePoint on premise webapp policy. The only way is running a script to add users to a new group "FullReader", but this way is not maintainable: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/security-webapppolicies

              • Alert Me option for Folders in New OneDrive Version

                Alert Me option for Folders has been disabled in New Version of One Drive. This option is available in Classic version, which allows to send a notification to the users on any changes made to the shared folder. This option if enabled with Ribbon will be more interactive and the overall appearance will be similar to any Microsoft application.

                • Separate add attachments from "Edit Item" permissions

                  In a SharePoint Online List if you want your users to add items with attachments, you are required to give them "Edit Items" permissions too.

                  In the future, to add attachments in a list, you should only need "Add Items" permissions or there should be a different check button that will allow user to add attachments without having permission to edit the rest of the columns.

                  It would be better and more secure to have this feature.

                    • SharePoint Server 2016 Feature Pack 3 updates

                      Expectation was it will be released in year 2018 itself and feature pack 3 is not released yet even after two successful months completion of year 2019.

                      These are not expectations we end users/organizations set with Microsoft SharePoint team.

                      Please gear up and send out the release of SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 3

                      • Please remove Server Resource Quota if no significance

                        Hello Team,

                        Please remove Server Resource Quota from SharePoint Online Central Admin if it is of no significance. As I understand this was applicable to allocate processing power and resources when working in SnadBox mode. But SandBox Env no longer exists.

                              • Modern Sites Quick Launch Navigation please allow custom width

                                Modern Sites Quick Launch Navigation please allow custom width
                                currently the Left Navigation doesn't allow expanding the width and therefore the words are cutoff due to the font being different size to the classic site. Also the words do not wrap so it leave the links looking confusing when they are similar words.
                                Classic Experience view shows this correctly. Smaller font and with word/line wrap.
                                Modern Experience view is opposite, font is too large and no word/line wrap.

                                      • Read only columns

                                        I have implemented a sharepoint solution that requires that specific fields in a sharepoint list be edited at intervals. This has created a need to be able set certain fields in my sharepoint list as read only so they cannot be edited. The ability to set fields as read only would make solutions that we develop with sharepoint even more robust.

                                        • Allow multiple selections in API Management

                                          Currently API approvals need to be processed one by one. Throughout the development process API calls will need to be approved, rejected and deleted several times. Please make this a multiple select action.
