  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  20. The user with read-only permissions can delete the file in Explorer View.

    For some reason, the user with read-only permissions on the file can delete the file in Explorer View.
    Also, when deleting the file, there is no warning message displayed like “Can't delete”
    I hope it can be improved and also display the warning message.
