  1. Daisy chain databases

    Have content in database spill off to child databases off the main site collection database if the main site collection database grows more than 100gb. I have several databases that I have to manually split because the implementation was so sloppy.

  2. Keep the term set in the same order with csv file when importing the term set

    When importing the term set by using a csv file, it would be great if the imported terms could be arranged in the same order with a csv file.

  3. Es wäre hilfreic es unterbinden, dass Mitglieder die Option ein- oder ausblenden können, neue Ordner in Dokumentenbibliotheken zu erstellen.

    Meine Idee wäre es zu unterbinden,, dass Mitglieder die Option "Neue Ordner in der Dokumentenbibliothek erstellen dürfen" (Dokumenteneinstellungen -> Erweiterte Einstellungen) ein- oder ausblenden können.

  7. Build OLAP database for Project Server 2016 very long time

    Hi,

    Our Project Server 2016 (on-premise), take a long time to build OLAP (about 7.5 hrs). Currently, data row on table [pjrep].[MSPEpmAssignmentByDay] about 2,000,000. I found big problem with view [pjrep].[MSPEpmAssignmentByDayOlapView00007829-4392-48B3-B533-5A5A4797E3C9]
    It's use table value function (TVF) to filter SiteId: [pjrep.MSPTVFEpmAssignmentByDay('487EED98-D954-4F64-9DAC-3A8821787318')

    I'm read in https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/psssql/2010/10/28/query-performance-and-multi-statement-table-valued-functions/
    "But if you use multi-statement TVF, it’s treated as just like another table. Because there is no statistics available, SQL Server has to make some assumptions and in general provide low estimate. If your TVF returns only a few rows, it will be fine. But if you intend to…

  8. Use SQL as a service for Sharepoint 2016

    Please consider supporting the use of SQL as a service to support SharePoint 2016. This would greatly facilitate the rollout of SharePoint in Azure.

  9. When the option “Start this workflow to approve publishing a major version of an item” being applied, “Modified by” column displays “System

    *English follows Japanese

    アイテムのメジャー バージョンの発行を承認するためのワークフローを開始すると、更新者が [システム アカウント] と表示される
    ユーザーがドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードされたアイテムに対し [チェックイン] 作業を行い、メジャー バージョンを発行すると、ドキュメント ライブラリの [更新者] 列に [システム アカウント] と表示され、最終更新者が表示されないため、最終更新者の確認ができない。

    そのため、[更新者] 列に実際ライブラリのファイルを更新した最終更新者が表示されるようにしてほしい

    When the option “Start this workflow to approve publishing a major version of an item” being applied, “Modified by” column displays “System Account”.
    When a user performs a check-in operation on the item which has been uploaded to the Document Library and then publishes a major version, the “Modified by” column in the document library displays “System Account”. So the “Last Modified By” cannot be displayed nor be confirmed.
    Please let the “Modified by” column can display the real…

  10. Ability to do multiple check in and check outs

    I believe this was a functionality that was removed from the modern UI, but it would be very helpful to have an option to do multiple check in and checks outs.

  11. Timer jobs need to handle all necessary SQL maintenance

    SharePoint Timer jobs need to check the databases for several types of problems (index fragmentation, slow I/O to SAN, etc), do a better job of reporting it to the sharepoint administrators (add a Database and SQL health page?), and either perform all the necessary SQL maintenance needed (like updating statistics, rebuilding indexes, dbcc checkdb, etc.) as needed or allow the SharePoint administrator to know what is needed (dashboard) and schedule that maintenance. Also the dashboard/page needs to be more transparent about showing which jobs failed. Add to health analyzer? Also check response times of reads and writes on the tempdb…

  12. OneNote - shredded storage exclusion

    OneNote is edited a lot by end users. When it is stored in Sharepoint 2013, the shredded storage mechanism tends to store it in different blocks. When one has to download OneNote from SharePoint it takes a long time. So two things we can do here:
    1> exclude One Note from Shredded Storage.
    2>Provide a toll to consolidate OneNote blocks on a regular basis to avoid the performance issue
