  1. We received "Bad Request - Request Too Long" error when we tested multiple user account on single computer

    We received "Bad Request - Request Too Long" error when we tested multiple user account on a single computer.
    We just try to log-in by Account1 and log-out. Try to log-in by another account (e.g. Account2), repeated this sequence for 10s of accounts.
    We saw this problem on Microsoft Edge and by removing cache on Edge, the problem has gone.
    We believe this is a kind of bug and hopefully resolved in the future.

  2. Update the filters for managed metadata.

    Currently if you have a group of managed metadata that has submetadatas within the group, the filter function do not work as well as it should.

    For instance lets say you have the following terms:
    North America

      Canada
    
    Ontario
    Quebec
    Alberta
    USA
    New York
    California
    Chicago

    and the end users would like to select both Ontario and Alberta for their search, it will only allow them to select one of those choices.

  3. Make level access with sharing links more obvious

    An option to have the default level sharing permission 'view only'. At the moment all sharing links are edit by default but it's not obvious to the user from the 'get link' or 'share' dialogue box that they have to click on the link to change the settings. So whilst we need the option for external users to have edit access to content that's shared with them, this would not be our default unless it was clear at the point the end user is getting the link that they can change to view only. Please make this more obvious.

  4. Sharepoint Office 365

    We have a small team of 5 People within the organisation using Office365 SharePoint. Roughly a year and more ago on multiple instances SharePoint on the local teams individual PC's was not allowing the back of local SharePoint data, so in my particular case the team at Telstra who support Office365 in Australia had to make back ups of the SharePoint data however I have now up to 3 or 4 backups personally and this was caused when the team said that our naming conventions where to long and not acce3ptable with SharePoint online. The issiue is we cannot migrate…

  5. Maintain version history when copying files in Sharepoint

    When copying files in Sharepoint (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Move-or-copy-a-folder-file-or-link-in-a-document-library-00e2f483-4df3-46be-a861-1f5f0c1a87bc) it should retain the version information of the files moved rather than just creating a new version of the file, basically making the latest version, 1.0.

    This is a useless feature at the moment as it only serves as another method to copy files between sites and is no different than downloading them and uploading them to another site.

  9. Navigation problem using Managed Metadata

    While using Managed Metadata, users that aren't not admin CAN see every sites even if they don't have the access. This could be quite a problem when you have many users that are trying to reach their site and when they don't know where to go and if they have access.
    The security is OK, users will be redirected to a page telling them they don't have access to but is there any ways to simply hide these sites where they don't have access like Structural Navigation do.

  10. Regarding the auto created site collection while creating Office365 group

    I am aware that site collection is created automatically when I create Office365 group, but I do wish not to have it auto created while making Office 365 group.

  11. Provide an option to turn off SP Designer caching while developing..or remove it entirely as it's pointless.

    I've turned off the caching option in SPD settings but I still don't see changes that are made to js/css files unless I add a query parameter to the referenced url. This is a very tedious multistep process because master pages have to be checked out, and then approved all over again.
    Msft tells me "not all caching can be turned off" but can't explain why which is utterly absurd. The caching process seems to be poorly thought out: it seems to cache "some" files to a local machine (at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache) only when working in SPD which would be the…

  12. Certificates Created by SharePoint

    Since 2010 there are a set of SharePoint Deployed Certificates for SharePoint Security Token Service, SharePoint Security Token Service Encryption, and SharePoint Services. When a Farm is Created, the SharePoint Root Authority is not set to be trusted. When a farm is created or when a server is joined into a farm the SharePoint Root Authority could be added in as trusted to potentially mitigate slowness that may be experience per this KB:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2625048/site-slowness-because-of-sharepoint-sts-certificate-crl-checking

  13. Let me connect with the same engineer on various problems.

    I have talked with several support engineers. Although I have not been dissatisfied with any of them, there is one in particular, Doron Friedlander, who has been exceptionally beneficial for the level of marketing that I am doing. I would like to have the option of reconnecting with him regarding future challenges.

  15. Need to have the ability to protect individual folders with confidential documentation eg for HR team

    At the moment all global admins can access our HR documents that include details of salaries and bonuses etc. There doesn't appear to be a way to prevent this. In our case we have created a separate HR folder in Google Drive which is of course not ideal

  16. Eliminate the ability to delete/edit required objects

    It is currently possible to delete/change objects such as SP Groups and Content Types that SP depends on. When these items are changed, it is very difficult to troubleshoot and fix. MS needs to prevent us from accidentally breaking the software. Examples of this are the new SharePointOrgHome groups in SPO, the Title field for Items, the default Members group for a site etc.

  17. Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant

    The Outlook team has already made this tool super handy for troubleshooting client-side issues when interfacing with Exchange.

    My end users are running the tool themselves and loving it. Why not throw in some basic troubleshooting scenarios for SharePoint?

  18. Bug: SharePoint Timer Job "job-timer-recycle" without function

    The last Sebtember 2016 update for SP 2016 has, unfortunately, still a serious bug in the “SPTimerRecyleJobDefinition”. The job is never executed correctly!

    public override void Execute(System.Guid targetInstanceId)
    {
    try
    {
    Process currentProcess = Process.GetCurrentProcess();
    if (System.DateTime.UtcNow.Subtract(currentProcess.StartTime).Minutes < 60)
    {
    ULS.SendTraceTag(7436320u, ULSCat.msoulscatWSSTimer, ULSTraceLevel.Medium, "Skipping timer recycle since the process has been running less than 1 hour.");
    return;
    }
    }….

    TimeSpan.Minutes is the Minutes part and can not be greater then 59 (TotalMinutes is correct)! This Job is never executed!!!!
    The next Bug is Utc. The Process.StartTime is local time (Kind=local)

    Please remove the term review so that you…
