  1. People Picker

    There's no way to sort or change the order of the nodes in the left column on the People Picker user interface. When I add a trusted provider, I have no control over managing the order.

  2. Option to view a sharepoint task list, table, or document in either the current browser screen or additional one.

    Sharepoint REALLY needs the capability to easily allow users to open something (table, list, document) in another tab of the browser. In other words, allow the user the option to view the item of interest in the current screen (which is how it is done now) and allow the user to, say RIGHT CLICK on the document to open the document in another tab of the browser. Currently, if I want to look at several different documents concurrently, I have to copy a high level link to several tabs of the browser and navigate to each different document.

  4. Allow for sorting of Promoted public sites

    When adding promoted sites on the SP landing page, there is no way to put them in alphabetical (title) order. This would be helpful when you have multiple sites for members. This refers to internal users only.

  6. SharePoint Online Outgooing mail Persnalization

    We should have an option to configure the customer domain on the outgoing mail settings. I could see some customers leaving the O365 because of this. The email domain is generic.

  7. Identify Export events in logs as exports rather than searches in the logs

    Have Export events identified in the log as "Export" rather than current event type of "Search".

    Based on running the report and then going back to the eDiscovery site and looking through the exports I have determined that I think entries in log as search events are exports that is not apparent. It would be much easier if we could filter on Item Type = Site Collection AND Event = Export

  8. Remove "Get Skype for Business" from Office 365 home page

    On the homepage of Office 365 there is currently a notice to "Get Skype for Business". This appears even if you have Skype for Business installed or if Skype for Business installations have been disabled by the administrator. Please do something about this as it's a massive usability red flag.

    Either allow us to turn it off or get rid of it all together.

  9. MyMailbox feature

    In SP site owners can activate the site feature MyMailbox. This create an Exchange mailbox within the site with the email address SMO-<SiteName>@tenantname.onmicrosoft.com. If our Exchange Admins turn of the permission to create a InMailbox in exchange the site owner can still activate the feature, see the mailbox created but upon accessing receive an 403 error. it would be much cooler if the actîvation of the feature is geyed out in someone their SP site.

  10. Enable movement of content between farms

    Best practice dictates that we develop in a dev farm, move to test/qa for user testing and verification before deploying into production. Why doesn't SharePoint Central Administration enable this process and encourage best practices?
    We need an OOTB method to both 'refresh' dev & test environments from prod and to easily promote content, lists, libraries, pages etc. from dev to test and on to prod farms. Publishing is not the answer for everything, third party tools work but this is something that should be standard behavior in an enterprise software such as SharePoint.

  11. Concatenation of user profile property mapping

    There should be a flexibilty to merge two mapping for single user property. I have a oracle database and i have some value there also i have some details related to user in another Active Directory attribute.

    I want to merge these valyue from BDC and AD to create the custom property value. It will really help in such cases.

  13. Redesign interface for selecting the OUs from AD when configuring User Profile Sync

    It is currently very tedious to drill down through a complex AD structure to select the desired OU because the performance is very slow. It would be nice if this process was re-engineered to incorporate cached OUs and an improved UI.

  17. Calendar

    Calendar site permission should only list group which has site level access. It should not list those groups with "Limited Access" who are assigned unique permission in the lower level calendar list.

  19. Proide a [NOW] item in view filters for the current time.

    We often create items in lists or libraries that we want to show based upon the ending and starting time. Using [Today] in a view is just not good enough. WE need a [NOW] indicator

  20. DLP Exception Reporting

    Provide reporting to identify where users have chosen to allow an exception to DLP policies.

    Even better would be to also define an approval workflow (or just a notification at minimum) to trigger immediately when an override is initiated.
