  1. Keep username attached to an approved page when using publishing site with workflow

    When a site is created using "Publish Site with Workflow", after a page is approved the modified by field says "system account" instead of the actual user who approved the page. This has been an issue in our 2010 farm as well. Would love to see this represented as the actual last modified username.

  2. Share public pages with non-authenticated public users

    We think will be good idea to have the option to share some pages with non-authenticated public users so we can share part of the site with the public and not to force them to have a Microsoft account.

  3. Bug: SharePoint Timer Job "job-timer-recycle" without function

    The last Sebtember 2016 update for SP 2016 has, unfortunately, still a serious bug in the “SPTimerRecyleJobDefinition”. The job is never executed correctly!

    public override void Execute(System.Guid targetInstanceId)
    {
    try
    {
    Process currentProcess = Process.GetCurrentProcess();
    if (System.DateTime.UtcNow.Subtract(currentProcess.StartTime).Minutes < 60)
    {
    ULS.SendTraceTag(7436320u, ULSCat.msoulscat_WSS_Timer, ULSTraceLevel.Medium, "Skipping timer recycle since the process has been running less than 1 hour.");
    return;
    }
    }….

    TimeSpan.Minutes is the Minutes part and can not be greater then 59 (TotalMinutes is correct)! This Job is never executed!!!!
    The next Bug is Utc. The Process.StartTime is local time (Kind=local)

    Please remove the term review so that you can always…

  5. Restrict self service created MySites (User should not be SC Admin)

    It should be possible to automatically restrict the User Permissions of self Service created my sites. The users should not be Site Collection Admin of their own sites, because this makes it impossible to control any SharePoint structure.

    Thanks for suggestions!
    Best Regards

  7. Shared file Data should available on local drive

    Data for the share folders are only available on cloud. When We sync the shared data didn't download on local drive on other's computer.

  10. Add SharePoint bug area to uservoice or similar

    Please add a SharePoint bug area or other method to report problems to the SharePoint product team. I'm a Microsoft Gold Partner but not have a method to report bug. I try with Microsoft Support but without premier no method to report bug, also with Microsoft Partner Support but same way.

  12. utilize lync meeting instead of outbound call only support

    I posted rescue request from Office 365 Admin page and Microsoft Japan team provided me for their good support, but their way of communication is just through outbound only call and Microsoft Japan does not accept my call-back which is very inconvenient.

    While I understand that Microsoft does not want to accept inbound call because of resource allocation difficulties, I don't understand why Microsoft forces them to call and not allow them to use Lync meeting.

    Since all of us use Lync, if they want to communicate with us to make sure that their support is sufficient, why not set…

  13. 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?

  15. UI experience

    The Powershell script in https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/Switch-the-default-experience-for-lists-or-document-libraries-from-new-or-classic-66dac24b-4177-4775-bf50-3d267318caa9?ui=en-US&rs=en-IE&ad=IE has a comment to "Disable the new UI" but this doesn't disable the new UI at all - so the either the Powershell script is wrong OR the PG are sending mixed messages.

    Either way the customer wants to know how they turn off the new UI completely until such time Microsoft can sort all the problems and bugs and it becomes a product fit for purpose.

  17. How about a Fix for SharePoint 2013 installer.

    Come on, guys. This just won't do:

    Attempting to install any variety of SharePoint 2013 on a machine that has the .NET Framework 4.6.1 on it fails because the SharePoint installer says that it can't find .NET Framework 4.5.

    Yeah, seriously.

    The prerequisite installer happily accepts 4.6.1 (as it should), but the product installer makes a newbie mistake in wanting "4.5" but not "4.5 or later".

    Trying to downgrade 4.6.1 is a nightmare because it's inexcusably poorly documented (Aaron Stebner's blog post at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2016/03/04/mailbag-how-to-revert-to-older-versions-of-the-net-framework-4-family/#comment-37506) gives the only clear idea of what you have to do - uninstall a KB.

  19. Update Audience in Navigation Heading

    I went to People and Groups and renamed a SharePoint Group from Fun-Together to "Fun Together" and went I went to Navigation and changed the Audience for a Navigation Heading (A document Library) in SharePoint 2013 Enterprise Edition SP1, it did NOT update the audience, it has a red underline. I had to update it by deleting it and adding the correct one "Fun Together." I do NOT think it is the spaces, I believe it is that it is different and audiences are not updating it. I don't know if a timerjob fixes this, but I noticed this after…

  20. O sharepoint mais integrado ao onedrive e com mais funcionalidades do office em uma maquina.

    O Sharepoint se mostrou uma ótima saída para meus negócios, e achei bastante repetitivo e redundante com relação ao OneDrive, causando uma certa confusão. Acredito que os dois se complementam mas com possibilidades de existir apenas um. Acredito que o Sharepoint possa fazer tudo o que faz mais as funcionalidades do OneDrive, se complementando onde automaticamente toda a biblioteca do OneDrive estivesse no SharePoint e o mesmo do SharePoint no OneDrive. Gostaria que o SharePoint fosse capaz de funcionar com todas as ferramentas do office, como por exemplo mala direta. Senti falta de muita coisa que so tenho acesso em…
