  1. In OneDrive, allow permissions setting be more apparent when sharing with people

    I use OneDrive to share and transfer files. Currently, when I add people to share a file with, my only options are for for them 'to view' or 'to edit'. If I want to be allow for them to download the file, I need to add them first, then go to 'shared with', and edit their user permissions through 'advanced'. It literally took my 4 months to figure this out. Even the support team at Microsoft couldn't help me.

    I suggest you provide all the different 'permissions level' options available in OneDrive interface.

  2. Column Default Values Enhancement

    When you set column default values and use a choice field, the choices are not displayed. It would make setting this value much easier if the choices showed up in a drop-down like they do in the edit form.

    It would also be nice if you could use a single line of text field, and when you created a folder, it would automatically use the folder name as the default value to tag any documents added to the folder.

  3. Remove "Get Skype for Business" from Office 365 home page

    On the homepage of Office 365 there is currently a notice to "Get Skype for Business". This appears even if you have Skype for Business installed or if Skype for Business installations have been disabled by the administrator. Please do something about this as it's a massive usability red flag.

    Either allow us to turn it off or get rid of it all together.

  4. Enable movement of content between farms

    Best practice dictates that we develop in a dev farm, move to test/qa for user testing and verification before deploying into production. Why doesn't SharePoint Central Administration enable this process and encourage best practices?

    We need an OOTB method to both 'refresh' dev & test environments from prod and to easily promote content, lists, libraries, pages etc. from dev to test and on to prod farms. Publishing is not the answer for everything, third party tools work but this is something that should be standard behavior in an enterprise software such as SharePoint.

  5. Calendar

    Calendar site permission should only list group which has site level access. It should not list those groups with "Limited Access" who are assigned unique permission in the lower level calendar list.

  6. people and group should be searchable by partial name instead of paging through hundres of pages to find the group to assign

    people and group should be searchable by partial name instead of paging through hundreds of pages to find the group to grant access to a calendar.

  7. Concierge icon

    You should have a concierge icon listed with the other icons at https://portal.office.com/Catalog?add=sub&adminportal=0 so that we can tell which Office 365 we are getting 24/7 Concierge support with.

  9. Started Services on Server

    Filter Started Services on Server to only be visible as another "view" for "Started" instead of only "Configurable" "All" as the two options. Multiple Application and Web Servers make it challenging to find out what services are running with all the "Stopped"

  10. HNSC Zones

    Increase the zones that can be created with HNSC from 5 to more than that as sometimes we need to have vanity URLs pointing to the same HNSC

  15. SharePoint modern site pages navigate within the same tab without page refresh

    Certain analytics need page to be refreshed every time it is being accessed to understand the count of views. When you have link to certain pages on modern page and if you click on it, it opens up in the same window without refreshing the page. This led to miscalculation of view data. We should give an option to customers who wants to open page in a new window upon clicking on it.
