    After MS updated new feature, Mobile Push Notification, as mention in article no. MC77757, it looks like to impact into our tenant which main ribbon (both of SharePoint and Onedrive) was disappeared. Until we change the configuration from new experience to be classic view in SharePoint admin, it's returned. How can we set our configuration to be new experience with ribbon shown?

  4. Feature to set a certain permission for Recycle bin

    It would be great to have a feature to give a certain permission for Recycle bin like we currently can do with lists or libraries.

  8. Search results for lists with hyperlink columns should open the hyperlink in the column, not the list item

    If you create a list of links to consolidate them on one page, then search for those links, the search results opens the list item rather than the link in the list item. It would be more helpful to open the link that was saved.

  9. I really do like the new SharePoint Administration, it would be really beneficial to be able to add your own column for metadata or notes.

  13. SharePoint update overview

    The existing overview website for available updates does not display enough information about the updates:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt715807(v=office.16).aspx

    It would be very helpful to know which of the updates are cumulative and which of them are public updates.

    In the blog of Stefan Goßner (which is the best overview ever!!!) it is also not always clear for us:
    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/stefan_gossner/

    Please setup one central overview with all necessary information!

  14. make the access request e-mail the same as in the Sharepoint 2010

    If I get a request access e-mail I can only accept or decline, I do not have the option to add the user to a certain group, or give them Read Only access. SP recommends to add users to a group for easier administration, why is this option being taken away, when I want to grant access through the e-mail access request???

  15. Sort it

    On the Sharepoint admin page, it sure would be nice if I could sort the list by any of the table headers. Also, infinite scroll would be very helpful.

  16. Return to the pre-12/2/16 Outlook format

    The new Outlook format for email notifications from SharePoint as of 12/2/16 is not as efficient or user-friendly as the previous version. The completely white background, as opposed to the previous light blue background, make them harder to read. The text now goes off the page rather than wrapping for field edits, which causes the reader to have scroll in order to see the new text. The links to the sites are now at the bottom of the message rather than at the top and the link to the actual SharePoint List item is large and clunky and not clearly…

  18. Need to enable anonymous access but restrict who can access it by IP address or some other means.

    Our current on-premise SharePoint has anonymous access which allows customers not in our AD to access it without logging in. We need this type of setup for SharePoint Online so that we can restrict anonymous access to customers not in our tenant and on our network only.

  19. Add an option to download all prerequisite installers

    For example prerequisiteinstaller.exe /download C:\folder would download all installers to C:\folder without running them, so that they can be moved over to an offline server.

  20. Add filters to columns in SharePoint 2013

    I have a people directory in SharePoint 2013. The data is being pulled from the People Search into a web part in the Contacts app. It would be nice if we could create drop down filters on each of the columns (i.e. Name, Email, Job Title, Location, Office) and be able to pull data specific to that filter selection.
