  1. Show recurring events in the new Event Web Part

    Hi,

    I have the new look Sharepoint online and I notice when creating events in the Events Web App, you don't have the option to configure as a recurring event.

    If you create the event and then go site contents > events and manually drill into the event and setup recurring, the event no longer shows up in the Events Web Part.

    I think being able to setup recurring events is basic functionality for any calendar so can we get the feature added/fixed?

    Regards,
    Andrew

  6. Please make the menu fixed

    It would be really helpful if the width of the menu can be fixed even after you changed the Windows size in SharePoint site.
    At the present time, if you narrow the window, the menu item will be hidden in [...].
    Please fix the width of the menu in the SharePoint site, slide to the side with the scrollbar, and make the menu option can be selected.

  8. the messy code occur when download the Japanese name folder

    On Modern UI, a function of download folder has been added to document library, but when you download a folder with a Japanese name from IE, the folder’s name change to messy code sometimes.
    It does not happen to the other browsers.
    I hope that the messy code issue cannot occur even when I download the folder with a Japanese name from IE.

  11. PPT file is changing "created time" automatically

    When uploading a PPT file from Internet Explorer, the “created time” will be displayed the time which in the image’s properties for a while.
    But after a while, when I confirm the file from “Open with Explorer” in the library, the “created time” of the PPT file is overwritten by the file’s uploaded time.
    It would be really helpful if the PPT file can be remained to the time which in the image’s properties by “Open with Explorer”.

  12. About redirection

    The public site will end until March 2018, but it will continue to operate on WiX.
    In addition, it would be really helpful if it can be redirect and access Wix site directly when searching on Google and accessing searched results--the public site which created on SharePoint.

  13. JPG file is changing " Modified" time automatically

    After uploading a JPG file from Internet Explorer, the “Modified” time will be displayed the time which in the image’s properties for a while.
    But after one day, when I confirm the file from “Open with Explorer” in the library, the “Modified” time of the JPG file is overwritten by the file’s uploaded time.
    But office files and PNG files do not cause this issue.
    It would be really helpful if the JPG file can also be remained to the time which in the image’s properties by “Open with Explorer” like any other types of the file.

  17. About enable rating control in un-default view

    On Customer list, when I enable the “Assessment settings”, the “rating control” can only be used in default view.
    If I changed the view style, the “rating control” cannot be used and it can only display the “Likes” mark.
    It would be really helpful if “rating control” can be enabled not only in default view, but also in the other view like “Box”.

  18. The Chart of survey result

    I created a survey which multiple choices A, B, C can be selected.
    But the chart of survey result cannot be calculated separately by A, B, C, it only can calculated by AB, AC, BC etc.
    It would be really helpful if the chart of survey result can be calculated separately.

  19. Why can't the URL to a SharePoint Online site be changed to a new domain name?

    Unfortunately with Office 365, if you merge with another company or change you company name, you have to start all over with a new billing account and manually migrate email and shared documents on SharePoint just to change a domain name. Many companies merge or change names. This should be easy.

  20. SPO Information Management Policy does not support custom fields

    We noticed that the SPO Information Management Policy is not taking effect on the custom fields created for list. It seems that it only supports the pre-defined fields, which are not the ones that we want. We followed the steps in “Create a policy for a list, library or folder (location-based retention policy)” in https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-and-apply-information-management-policies-eb501fe9-2ef6-4150-945a-65a6451ee9e9 and it is not showing our desired results. Please consider supporting the custom fields.
