  3. Admin inheritance of deleted users Site(s) and\or Page(s)

    It would be a Nice-to-Have:
    As an Admin when you delete a user account that you receive a message asking IF you'd like to take over ANY\ALL Page\Site ownership from the User(s) you're trying to delete. This way it keeps your User Profile clean of ONLY those Active Users.

    Like Report Reader, it would be great to add a Search Administrator who can setup search on the entire tenant.

  10. Approval Workflow Data Sources Broken in SharePoint Online - Need fixed please!

    Perhaps the community can help figure this out or get a message to the product team for me. Our approval workflows broke about a month ago (August 14 2018) in SharePoint Online, I have been on Microsoft Partner Cloud Support for over a month back and forth and am on the 7th technician who cannot figure this out. This is simple to recreate the issue on SharePoint online, as I have shown 7 separate technicians how to recreate the issue and have included in the instructions below. The error I started getting in the workflow history was: error: "Coercion Failed:…

  12. Make the configuration up Sharepoint a little closer to what clients need by asking more questions during the initial setup.

    When setting up a new tenant, the default settings should result in a more easily useable Sharepoint environment. For example, I've had to put in support tickets for activating features like Sharing files/folders with users outside the tenant despite the option being available at the folder/file level. The Microsoft support tech took almost a day and a half to find the resolution.

    The need to collaborate with others outside your own organization is almost the norm today, so why make that feature a switch that must be hunted for and turned on? During initial setup of the tenant, ask a…

  14. SharePoint Online: Paging does not work in New experience mode for libraries and lists

    The paging only works when in the “Classic mode” for the libraries and lists. It does not display paging number after clicking the “Exit classic experience” link.
    Can paging be incorporated in the “New experience mode” for libraries and lists?

    Thanks

  16. Site collection created with modern Team Site not displayed and no UI delete

    The default template when creating new private site collections in the "classic" SharePoint Admin is now the modern Team Site. However, those site collections are not displayed there and are only visible in the preview of the new SharePoint Admin. Also when the site collection created with the modern Team Site gets deleted, it does not display in the "classic" SharePoint Admin recycle bin and again only visible in Deleted Sites of the preview.
    We need the following to be fixed:
    - if modern Team Site remains the default template, then those site collections need to display in the "classic"…

  19. Add "% quota used" column to new Site Management page

    On the new Site Administration/Site Management page, you are able to sort sites by their size. Would it be possible to add "% used of quota" (and have it be a sortable column) in that view?
