  1. User wants to add a feature that could display file numbers right after Folders on Document Library

    In order to manage Document Library (how many files are in a Folder) easily, apart from the way to display "Item Child Count" Column on Document Library View, user wants to add a feature that could display the count of file numbers right after each Folder.

      • 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.

        • Enable IP Security At Site Collection

          On SharePoint Online you can whitelist specific IP ranges at the tenant level but this isn't necessarily granular enough. There are many instances where I would prefer to be able to force an IP restriction on a specific site collections so I can ensure that I outsider can't access the content or so I can treat the content as public (no login required) for specific sites but not the entire internet.

          • Automatically synchronise Picture and other User Properties to Sharepoint Online

            Currently the User Profile synchronisation from Online AD is very limited and does not include the ability to map additional properties. At the very least I would like to see photos automatically synchronised.

            • Enable "Content Viewer" reports so we can see who has viewed docs for Audit purpoes

              The Audit Trail Functionality feature within Microsoft Office 365 does not currently allow “Content Viewer” reports to be produced. Further to discussions with Microsoft Technical Support Engineer, there are no plans to have this feature enabled.Can you please look into enabling this feature as this is extremely important when auditing sites and looking at who has viewed documents.

                • Enable CMIS in Sharepoint Online

                  Since OneDrive for Business on the Macintosh does not sync Sharepoint Libraries or Team Sites, I was excited to find an open source sync client called CmisSync. I installed it on my Mac, only to find it will sync with Sharepoint on premise, but not Sharepoint online. Apparently Microsoft failed to enable CMIS in Sharepoint Online. This is a request to review and reconsider this feature. Alternatively, please fix the new OneDrive (DF) client so that I can sync said libraries.

                            • Sync profile pictures across ALL of office 365

                              For large companies who want to upload user images for the user it does not sync across the whole office 365 platform. We uploaded user images into exchange online via powershell. Their picture shows up everywhere except sharepoint. To get to show up in sharepoint that user would have to sign in > go to their delve page > click edit profile > and then click save. We cannot rely on companies with 1000+ employees to all follow that instruction

                                      I'd like to be able to change the default link type per site collection or even better per site, not just at the tenant level. This ability would reduce incorrect sharing in tightly restricted site collections.

                                      • The file’s name changes to a messy code when using decompression software to download files

                                        If you download multiple files using decompression software, the file’s name will change to a messy code.
                                        I really want this function can be improved.

                                        • Revert default date format to "Standard" from "Friendly"

                                          When I want to know the time and date that something was Created or Modified I require a bit of standardized precision.
                                          e.g. [5/31/2017 7:33 PM] (actually, I'd prefer the ISO standard of [2017-05-31 19:33] but that's another discussion).
                                          Instead, the "Friendly" format gives you useless approximations like "a few minutes ago", or "29 minutes ago", or "May 5".
                                          This is what people are used to and what I suspect is the majority use case.
                                          Why would we want to impose a non-standard format, "Friendly" or otherwise. The "Friendly" format is the unusual non-standard format and as such deserves to…
