  1. Change shared zip files to display as a file, not in folder view

    Sharepoint Online
    When a zip file is shared and the recipient is presented with a folder view this implies that they should select what they want from inside the zip and click download. Doing this results in Sharepoint attempting to zip a folder\file contained in a zip for download, which results in an empty zip download. (Take a folder containing data and zip it. Upload to Sharepoint Online. Share it. When recipient clicks link have them select anything in zip and click download. They get a 1kb empty zip.)
    It is understood you can just click the shared link then…

  4. Site Access Request actionable message wher I can select SPGroup user is added to

    When a site access request is created a mail is sent to a user to approve or reject. Currently the user is added on the site with Contribute permissions. We can't use this because we have broken permissions on lists. So we need to be able to add the user in specific SPGroups. This is still possible if you open the site and approve the request from SharePoint. However end user who get a easy approve button in the mail click on it and expect everything to work.

    I propose that a dropdown is added to the actionable message where…

  6. Has anyone developed a test to ensure we are handing out SCA permissions to qualified SCAs?

    As the SharePoint infrastructure group, we are responsible for handing out SCA permissions to users who have their manager's approval to be an SCA.

    We have found there needs to be a more rigorous approach to handing out these permissions many SCAs end up in way over their head.

    Has anyone developed not only a training plan (which most ignore) but a test of some sort that says "you must know and understand these things before the SCA role will be bestowed upon you"?

  7. I cannot make changes to site settings, I am getting message that I don't have permissions and getting me to the page to ask for permissions

    Admin is not able to modify site settings page of a site, though he is the site owner.
    We tried to remove the user completely and then re-add him, along with that enabled custom script through power shell.
    Issue was resolved by admin as he figured out that Sharepoint server publishing infrastructure feature was causing the issue and he turned off the feature for the site.

  9. Ability to name versions in version history

    Currently SharePoint online creates versions on it owns as users continue to edit the content and some times is not very helpfull because you have to comb through 20 different versions to get to the version you want to restore.It would be great if you could name a version like you can in google sheets so you know what exact version you can roll back to.

  10. Add Contextual Help

    Create little help icons next to each of the actions or fields in the various forms in the SharePoint Admin Center. When you hover, you'd get brief summary description which includes inks to specific relevant help pages for more information (external pages should open in new window).

  12. Allow preview mode for Doc files on Sharepoint

    PDF files are enabled for a preview mode on SharePoint, which means that when I click on a PDF file I can click on 'Next' , 'Previous' buttons to move from one file to another within the sharepoint folder without having to close and open the files, but when I click on a word file it doesn't open it in the same preview mode

  13. Customization

    When an OD4B account is deleted a message is sent to the deleted user manager. We want the data owner to make decisions on the user data (not IT) so this approach is great. However, the message is very generic and is confusing the user.
    It will be great if we will have the option to customize the message and provide some specific instructions to the manager specific for our company (including Help desk support number just in case).

  19. Using relative instead of absolute links in content

    Currently, links in SharePoint content are absolute, and this give many constraints with typical enterprise scenarios :
    - SSL offloading
    - Internet publishing
    - access from multiples URLs

    Using alternate access mappings for path-named site collections and header "Front-End-Https: On" for HNSC are workarounds for that, but they hard limitations and constraints.

    With relative URLs instead of absolute ones in whole SharePoint content, it would make these use cases much easier.
