  1. When select [ツール バーの表示] from [ツール バーの種類] of SharePoint Online list display form

    SharePoint Online のリストの表示フォームの [ツール バーの種類] を [ツール バーの表示] に選択する場合、初期表示は、問題なく右上にページの遷移ボタンが表示されますが、次のページに遷移した後では、利用のブラウザーによって、その右上のページ遷移ボタンが消えたり、ページングができない事象が発生していますので、正常に表示し、動作できるようにしたい。

  3. Make the onprem CU updates NOT break your environment...

    MS support tech suggested i post here so i am doing so.

    We do our best to avoid putting ourselves into the situation of having to do a CU but unfortunately there was a compliance issue so we had no choice.

    Our environment has been down for over 5 weeks now...

    Microsoft's suggestion is always to start from scratch but we cannot keep loosing work and as one cannot clone an environment all of the settings are lost as well.

  5. Please create a facility for editing and deleting erroneous and defunct SharePoint Team Sites

    There is currently not a way to edit or delete a SharePoint site once it is created. At present, there are SharePoint team sites created by prior teams that are no longer in use, or sites with misspellings that need editing, or sites that are returning 404 page not found errors. These are all littering our Dashboard and cannot be corrected or deleted. It is extremely frustrating.

  7. サイトコレクション管理画面の利便性向上

    サイトコレクション一覧画面に、サイトコレクションの用途等、コメントを記載できる列が欲しい。(一般的なリスト機能と同じように、自作した列でカテゴライズ、フィルタ等できるとなお良い)大量に作成した結果Excelなどの別ファイルで棚卸することになり、管理が煩雑になるため。

  8. Update Customer regarding Product update release based on Subscription !!

    Update Customer regarding Product update release based on Subscription !!

    As a Support Engineer I work very closely with Customers, we are aware of their requirements and feedback, based on this I wanted to put forward the below Idea.

    IDEA: We have seen scenarios where customers face issues due to the product design which gets resolved when the latest update is released with the fixes. On the same note, it would be great if we could have the Product based Subscription for our Customers which gives the brief description regarding the updates and fixes for that respective release.

    Implementing this…

  9. Bring back the ability to filter by empty columns in lists and libraries. It was there a month or so ago and has for some reason dissappeare

    Stop removing features and not advertising it. The ability to filter by empty columns made managing data a lot simpler. Now it is becoming terrible and clients are asking why we are pushing them to SharePoint when they can't develop business processes as things change (for the worst) with little to no notification. Great communication on new features but nothing about things being removed.

  10. Central Administration : Match Configuration DB Version shown in Manage Servers in this farm section with the latest Build number

    As mentioned by Stefan(MSFT) in this article -https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/stefan_gossner/2016/08/23/sharepoint-does-not-have-a-build-version-full-stop/

    - The configuration database version in the Manage Servers in this farm section in Central Administration is not an indicator of which is the latest Patch/CU done on the farm . Doing the cmdlet (Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion, also doesn not give the correct value. The only way to understand the latest update installed is by going to Upgrade and Migration ->Check Product and Installation Status. Here we could see the latest installed update. However this build number does not always match the configuration database version number in System Settings -> Manage Servers in…

  12. Native support for Oliver Carpentier's Fantastic 40 Webparts

    Oliver Carpentier's fantastic 40 weparts makes SharePoint far more valuable. It should be baked into sharepoint.

  14. Allow administrators to view emails that have been sent an invite link with no sign-in required

    Allow administrators to view emails that have been sent an invite link with no sign-in required. Currently, there is no way to view who has edit/view access to folders if they have been sent the link with no sing-in required. It would be nice to see who has access and be able to remove their access, if possible.

  17. Option to view a sharepoint task list, table, or document in either the current browser screen or additional one.

    Sharepoint REALLY needs the capability to easily allow users to open something (table, list, document) in another tab of the browser. In other words, allow the user the option to view the item of interest in the current screen (which is how it is done now) and allow the user to, say RIGHT CLICK on the document to open the document in another tab of the browser. Currently, if I want to look at several different documents concurrently, I have to copy a high level link to several tabs of the browser and navigate to each different document.

  18. Allow for sorting of Promoted public sites

    When adding promoted sites on the SP landing page, there is no way to put them in alphabetical (title) order. This would be helpful when you have multiple sites for members. This refers to internal users only.

  20. Have it Written with asp.net 5

    a. It would be very cool that during the installation, it will go get what is still missing as a NuGet package instead of giving a nasty error.
    b. Self-updateable if we so wish.
    c. Smaller footprint will make somewhat quicker maybe.
