    The text you entered in Excel Online has been interrupted by 30 columns (AD columns, BH columns, CL columns, DP columns...) and cannot be displayed.
    Please make the text can be displayed correctly even the text length beyond the width of the cell.

  2. Stop breaking Quicklaunch Drag and Drop link functionality

    D&D used to work for the quicklaunch like magic. It was quick and it was easy. Now it's broken and it gets progressively worse. One day you need to edit an item once and then drag and drop will work on it, the next day it's completely broken. I don't think anyone has to explain how garbage it is trying to use the SharePoint backend menus for trying to customize anything to do with UX...

  3. Make the personal information seen function can be managed altogether in Administration page.

    Because personal information can be seen in each function, it is difficult to manage.
    It would be really helpful if it can be managed altogether in one place of Administration page.

  4. Make activities to be saved more longer than 90 days

    You can search for activities that have run within 90 days in the Office 365 audit log, but other company’s products can be saved more than five years.
    So I really want that activities can be saved more longer instead of only 90 days in Office 365.

  5. JPG file is changing "created time" automatically

    After uploading a JPG file from Internet Explorer, the “created 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 “created 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.

  6. Provide a workflow option (one that works) for newsfeed(microfeed)

    Current workarounds for creating newsfeed workflows does not work(list workflow or site workflow using SharePoint designer 2013). It would be better to introduce a workflow settings option similar to other lists wherein "create a workflow in sharepoint designer" is readily available.

  7. Hi Team, There is no option on sharepoint sites for users to ask for read/write permissions if they already have read-only access.

    Hi Team, There is no option on sharepoint sites for users to ask for read/write permissions if they already have read-only access. The only option left to them is they need to inform owner by verbally or email which doesn't sound good

  10. App Launcher on prem 2.0

    I really appreciated you bringing App launcher to on-premises, but you gave us the first generation of app launcher, and O365 is already many versions ahead which allows end-users to customized it and search within. As enterprise we like to embrace the App launcher, but really need the last version that has all the newest updated changes.

  11. Allow the ability to hide the OneDrive tile in the App Launcher in SharePoint Server 2016

    By default the OneDrive tile is provisioned in the App Launcher in SharePoint Server 2016. If there is a need to suppress this tile for a period of time there is no way to do that without using CSS.

  12. Allow External Content Types to be Shared Columns in Document Sets.

    Allow documents to inherit External Content Type columns from Document Sets. I'm trying to integrate CRM with SharePoint, and decided Document Sets were the way to go for each of my clients. I created an ECT for CRM and added it to my Document Set content type. However, I cannot make the ECT columns "shared columns" so I had to create a workflow to copy the data into a text column that is inheritable.

    I have thousands of clients being updated daily, so now I'm resorting to Scheduled Tasks and Workflows to do a job that should be built-in.

  14. Creating Personal Views (Not Public Views) - User Friendly Suggestion for the Webpage Experience

    Document Library:

    As a user who will need to have many shortcuts, the process to create views is not seamless. The intuitive methodology would be to set filters, then save view somehow.

    Current Status Quo for personal views is either creating a public one, then templating a personal off of it, then deleting public

    -or-

    Going through a very menu intensive and manual process with high precision (keying exact Enterprise Tags and such). I would hope to have a user friendly interfacing for creating these views as well.

  17. Custom tile not available

    365 office Custom tile not available/ not possible to customize because it requires Exchange Online mailbox assigned. Like to add a SharePoint tile but unable due to the above reason.

    Why should users be forced to subscribe to Exchange online to enable tile customization?

    In new Site Content and Document library experience Quick launch (left navigation) is showing not what is configured in Site Settings -> navigation. It looks like there are no way to control what it shows.

  19. Use custom master page on new document library and Site content experience

    Custom master page is not used in newly introduced Document Library experience and Site content experience. If we are using custom master page and then user goes to Site Content or Document Library it looks like he has end up in different place (because it looks differently).

  20. For SharePoint Site Mailbox App, please add the ability to set a default CC email.

    Right now, when we create a new email message, the CC email address has to be entered manually in the SharePoint "Site Mailbox App". Some users can be forgetful and not entering the project's email in the CC box; we just want a quick way in the "Options" panel to set this email by default, so that a copy of the email will always be sent to the project's Mailbox.
