  1. Find a way to create an alert for comments on the modern page added in my SharePoint site.

    I can set alerts for items changing on my modern page added in my SharePoint but when people make comments I'm not able to be alerted. This is how we get feedback on certain projects and I'm missing some because they're leaving comments (like I ask) and I have to keep going back to check. I also think you should be able to link to someone else in the group, similar to how Facebook is set up. For example: @Becky -- which then pops up with that person's name I can select -- and they would receive an alert that…

    • add feature to use filters and do search in the recycle bin

      When recycle bin get large, it is difficult to find item. Having the ability to use filters or doing a search in the recycle bin would facilitate our task.

      • Allow Managed Metadata to be accessed from Power Query in Excel

        In Power Query using SharePoint List as source if the SharePoint List has Managed Metadata Columns and if we use Power Query then those columns doesn't show up in Excel .

        Doing Export to Excel from a SharePoint list allows us to see Managed Metadata values but they append some ID's in front .

          • Upgrade Root Site Collection to Modern Templates

            I would like to be able to upgrade the root site collection to the modern Communication Site w/ topic template. It is also not possible to provision a new root site collection from the new SharePoint admin center.

            • Sharepoint Child Items Permission flag

              In UI we have option to grant permission to child items along with the folder permission using the checkbox "Share everything in this folder, even items with unique permission". However there is no api available for sharing permission for child items via api/ CSOM.

              It would be better to have this feature.

              • Remove extraneous characters from term store data export to excel

                When SharePoint data is exported to Excel, managed metadata columns show up with extra characters, such as 35;#Metals instead of just Metals. Would be better if only the term name got transferred.

                • Add preview and thumbnail features to document library

                  Some handwriting documents are scaned as images in order to put on my SharePoint site along with some Word documents, instead of moving back and forth between document Library and picture Library while browsing the datas, I prefer to put my images and documents in a single document Library. However, when I did this, I found that the image preview and thumbnail preview is not available in a document Library( I have added the image content type to the document Library ), I could add a preview column to the list view of document Library but the preview image just…

                  • External User Access - Need better workaround to invite external users

                    Administrator should better "External User" invitation process. Recently we had a project where the client was in the "Office 365" environment, however, we did not know that they had an "On-Prem" Exchange with a separate "Microsoft Login". So when we sent the message to their "existing" email, they kept getting errors "Access Denied". After a VERY LONG Microsoft support process, the SharePoint Team sent me to the Azure AD Team. Then the Azure AD team sent me back to the SharePoint Team. LISTEN UP MICROSOFT, your current External Permissioning process STINKS!!!!! We need to be able to set the users…

                    • restore datasheet functionality

                      SharePoint 2013 degraded the datasheet view, purportedly to make it platform-independent; but this rendered it impossible to paste multiple rows of new data into a list as before.

                          • Add 'All Sites' to the Sharepoint Tile landing page (aka /_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx)

                            Right now, when my users click the SharePoint Tile in O365, They are met with a page listing 'News from sites', 'Frequent Sites' and 'Suggested Site'.

                            Given users end up as members of multiple sites, it can get hard to keep it all organized. What would be great would be an addition to the three sections described above that will list 'All Sites' that a user has access to. That way end users can find something they use sporadically without having to remember some part of the name to do the search...
                            Thanks

                              • allow admin to force check-in for unchecked in files, but retain the original owner and data/time stamp

                                Currently there is a feature called "Manage files with no checked in version."
                                The challenge with this is that the admin doesn't have the ability to force the check-in. The admin can take ownership, then check in the file, but this loses the file metadata of the person who originally uploaded the file ("owner") and the date-time stamp that they uploaded/added it.
                                Usually, when there is a need to look at these files, it is because they are hidden from everyone but the "owner" and the owner didn't realize they needed to check the file in. There is no value…

                                • 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.

                                      • Default domain URL

                                        Would be nice if we could change SharePoint default domain. For this costumer the site is named planexscan, but the costumers primary domain is plsdk.com. Think you should make it possible to change.
