  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

  7. You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items

    You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items.
    This error appears even for the colleagues who is the owner of the survey.
    Would be good if the owners can subscribe to alerts irrespective of this privacy settings who can see the responses,

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Instead of having default sender as no-reply@sharepointonline.com, Tenant SharePoint app should have facility to use specific sender address

    In hybrid environment lots of customization always in demand. One of the case is having specific sender email address for mass communication via Shrepoint Online app to the respective Tenants users hosted in onPrem AD environment.

    Therefore, its good to have app level custom setting to achieve the above

  13. 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.

  14. Enable addition of all list apps in the list preview webpart in modern site page

    At present, only custom lists are enabled to be viewed in the list preview webpart of the modern site pages. It will be great, if other lists such as Announcements, tasks etc. are also enabled for this list preview webpart.

  16. Open HTML files in browser instead of prompting for download SharePoint Online

    In SharePoint on premise server, we could set Browser File Handling to Permissive for users to open html files directly in the browser. But in SharePoint Online, there is no options for this.

  19. Allow change to base url

    Allow organizations to change their base URL in case the company name changes or for whatever reason the base URL becomes inappropriate. (eg contso.sharepoint.com to company.sharpoint.com)

    Being able to do this without having to re-create the tenancy from scratch would be invaluable.
