  1. The file can be displayed correctly even on Excel Online

    I hope that the file on Excel Online which is including grouped objects or inserting images can also be correctly displayed.
    The limitation on Excel Online is really inconvenience.

  2. Site classification on classic site creation

    In the "Site Creation" part of the settings, when selecting "A classic site" we're facing a "site classification" option.
    Site classification concept is different when comparing sites with groups (tags) and classic sites (policy).
    It was difficult to understand that when choosing the classic site option the classification field was linked with policies. And thus if the policy is not created at the site collection level this option is not showed to the end-user.

    Suggestion: change the name of the field or put a text to explain it. Thus: tell administrator that this option is not activated unless he/she creates…

  4. Be able to customize sharepoint group page URL.

    We initially evaluated SharePoint before purchasing Office 365 and created a group called Office365Evaluation. Later we changed that group name to fit our company's name. However the name change was not reflected in the URL which looks like:

    https://ourcompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Office365Evaluation/

    The Site Heirarchy only allows you to change the url of sub-sites and not the main group page. I recommend adding that as a feature so groups could be renamed without having to create a new group and copy everything into it (which is what a tech rep told me I would have to do).

  5. the count of items and paging

    There’s no such function of Paging in Document Library.
    Even if I defined the count of items on modern UI, it can just display more by scrolling the Scrollbar instead of using the paging button.
    It would be really helpful if the paging button can be added like on classic UI.
    And also, when I group items by using collapsed in Document Library, it only can display one group on modern UI.
    It would be really helpful if all can be displayed like classic UI.

  6. Multiple files upload to document library

    I want to upload multiple files to document library in SharePoint.
    During uploading, except for using “Open with Explorer”, is there any other way that a zip file can be auto-unpacked to document library?
    It would be really helpful if it can implement such a convenient function.

  7. disable folder creation on a site collection level

    Site Collections admins should have the ability to turn off the folder settings so that any library created will not have the option to turn on new folders.

  9. Error when adding a templated "document" content type to a Library in New experience

    I created a Document Library in SPO, replaced the Document CT with a custom one that includes an Excel template (.xltx) as the template.

    In New experience, the template document is not shown, but several default office document types are, along with the Link option.

    In Classic experience, ONLY the the template document shows. This is the desired and expected behavior of New experience as well.

  11. Responsive UI by default

    Now a days every site are Responsive ui. So can we make both office 365 and On-permises reposive? Will save lots of development effort.

  12. Customization of the width of column lists by administrators

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    管理者によるリストの列の幅のカスタマイズ
    Customization of the width of column lists by administrators


    ■Description(内容):
    管理者が設定したリストの列の幅が、他のユーザーが閲覧した場合にも反映されるようにしてほしい。

    現状では、各ユーザーごとに列の幅を設定する必要があるが、管理者が設定したものが、各ユーザーが該当のリストを閲覧した場合の列の幅として表示されるような機能を提供してほしい。
    I hope the width of column lists customized by administrators to be reflected even when other users are accessing them.
    In the current behavior, every single user has to change the width of column lists by themselves, but it would be better if any changes for the width of column lists done by the administrator will automatically be reflected in their view.

  13. Teams - Sharepoint Hub-Navigations

    Display of hub navigation sharepoint in teams

    If you add the main Sharepoint online page (https://xxxxx.sharepoint.com/) as a channel in teams via link, the hub navigation of the Sharepoint page is not displayed.

    It is not possible to navigate to other pages because all menus are hidden.

  18. Limit the available site designs to the current site template

    Currently the site designs drop down menu does not filter the available site designs based on the current sites site template. e.g. team site based site designs are still displayed even if the current site uses the communication site template. This is confusing for users.

  20. Provide a 'site classification' property with optional banner/policy

    A common business requirement is to identify sites that contain specific types of information. Providing a text property would enable improved management, search, and maintenance of sites.
    If that property could then be linked to site policies, even better.
    if that property has an optional banner text that is displayed, even more better.

    Uses of this could include, but not limited to: Special events, protected information, archived sites {read-only},

    There is a work-around posted at on the dev-solutions page at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/implement-a-sharepoint-site-classification-solution
