  1. How about a Fix for SharePoint 2013 installer.

    Come on, guys. This just won't do:

    Attempting to install any variety of SharePoint 2013 on a machine that has the .NET Framework 4.6.1 on it fails because the SharePoint installer says that it can't find .NET Framework 4.5.

    Yeah, seriously.

    The prerequisite installer happily accepts 4.6.1 (as it should), but the product installer makes a newbie mistake in wanting "4.5" but not "4.5 or later".

    Trying to downgrade 4.6.1 is a nightmare because it's inexcusably poorly documented (Aaron Stebner's blog post at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2016/03/04/mailbag-how-to-revert-to-older-versions-of-the-net-framework-4-family/#comment-37506) gives the only clear idea of what you have to do - uninstall a KB.

  3. Update Audience in Navigation Heading

    I went to People and Groups and renamed a SharePoint Group from Fun-Together to "Fun Together" and went I went to Navigation and changed the Audience for a Navigation Heading (A document Library) in SharePoint 2013 Enterprise Edition SP1, it did NOT update the audience, it has a red underline. I had to update it by deleting it and adding the correct one "Fun Together." I do NOT think it is the spaces, I believe it is that it is different and audiences are not updating it. I don't know if a timerjob fixes this, but I noticed this after…

  4. 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…

  7. Fix additional filters on relared items

    If you have two lists - say Client and BillingCode, where each billingCode has a client column, and some other filterable columns. If you add the related items widget to the client form it correctly filters BillingCodes.
    However, you cannot filter by any of the other columns.

    In new Site Content and Document library experience Quick launch (left navigation) is showing not what is configured in Site Settings -> navigation. It looks like there are no way to control what it shows.

  10. Use custom master page on new document library and Site content experience

    Custom master page is not used in newly introduced Document Library experience and Site content experience. If we are using custom master page and then user goes to Site Content or Document Library it looks like he has end up in different place (because it looks differently).

  11. Add Multiple Webparts at Once

    When creating a page or updating one, you may have multiple webparts that you want to add. You have to click, add, wait, then click, add, wait. Why not click a bunch, with Ctrl-Click or something to select a bunch, maybe a "mulitiple button" and then checkbox and then put them on the page.
    Also allow for several webparts to have the same updates say all 3 I select have Audience of xyz.

  13. Excluding Site Mailboxes from People Picker autosuggestions

    When for example sharing content or assigning permissions as an end user you use a people picker that has an autosuggest feature, showing suggestions in a dropdown as you type. This autosuggest feature looks up objects from the active directory without any filtering and there is no way to configure this. So if you for example you enable the site mailbox feature, this creates an object in active directory that is not a user and not a security group. This is not an object that you would like to be presented in the people picker. An option to configure this…

  15. Enforce ShowEveryoneExceptExternalUsersClaim false in peoplepicker for OneDrive again

    When first released, ShowEveryoneExceptExternalUsersClaim, when set to false, prevented the "Everyone except external users" from being visible in the PeoplePicker. I have been told by support that this was backed out in OneDrive for Business. This is far from ideal. Please change it back.

  16. In OneDrive, allow permissions setting be more apparent when sharing with people

    I use OneDrive to share and transfer files. Currently, when I add people to share a file with, my only options are for for them 'to view' or 'to edit'. If I want to be allow for them to download the file, I need to add them first, then go to 'shared with', and edit their user permissions through 'advanced'. It literally took my 4 months to figure this out. Even the support team at Microsoft couldn't help me.

    I suggest you provide all the different 'permissions level' options available in OneDrive interface.

  18. Incoming SMS (Text Message) Ability for SharePoint

    SharePoint has Outgoing Text Message (SMS) capability but it was identified several times by many customers that they needed to user Incoming SMS (text message) functionality too which is currently not available. this will open the door for much more broader automations in Workflow criteria. I do not know how deep I am talking about (it may depend on Service providers, gateway support etc...) but this particular point has a significant potential (example - one of the client needed to send an SMS alert to their Drivers based on a Workflow Status and then Drivers needs to reply to the…

  19. Add a Search Field with Intellisense to Central Admin

    The more complex sharepoint becomes, the more things there are in Central Admin. Sometimes my eyes glaze over when I'm looking at it all. I'd rather just start typing something into a search field there than clicking around trying to find something I used once and have forgotten where it is at. Windows 10 is good about this. Just type a few letters of what you're looking for and it magically shows up. For example, type ULS rather than click on the link for monitoring and whever else.
