  2. Ability to do multiple check in and check outs

    I believe this was a functionality that was removed from the modern UI, but it would be very helpful to have an option to do multiple check in and checks outs.

  3. Inline powershell

    Implement an Office 365 Shell much like the Azure Shell recently released, this could contain the relevant modules for each Office 365 component or selectable to connect to that component.

  5. Allow Survey Questions to dispaly horizontally

    Allow Survey Questions to display horizontally. We receive a lot of requests from our users to display survey choice questions horizontally. The vertical responses consume a lot of page real estate and would be better arranged horizontally.

    When you enable “Rating Settings” in the “Announcements list”- “List Settings” section, click “Like!” on the Modern UI and update the vote page, the total number will strangely go back to the previous number.
    Please improve this feature and make the voted total number displayed correctly like the one in the Classic UI.

  7. Provide us with a "Add current user" to primary/secondary site collection administrator upon creation

    Most of the time when I create a site collection I add my current account to the primary site collection admin. Would be usefull to have a "Add current user" to save me from typing my user name. Somehing similar to SQL server setup.

  13. Error Message needs to be more intuitive when a site collection is created in SPO

    When we create new site collection (on SharePoint Online), on availability of same name as Group site it gives "Access Denied" message; it is confusing, instead message should be more meaningful.

  14. The sharing functionality to easily enable externaly users access to file needs to be moved into a top level menu.

    The sharing functionality to easily enable externally users access to files and set permissions needs to be moved into a top level menu. The ability to provide limited access to certain folders and functions within those folders is too hard.

    You should not have to create a user and member of an outlook group to provide basic sharing features that were too braod or narrow. This was very frustrating.

    Apparently the only way around this would be to change some settings in PowerShell which seemed counter intuitive to the core functionality of SharePoint.

    The work around for me was to…

  15. Stop breaking Quicklaunch Drag and Drop link functionality

    D&D used to work for the quicklaunch like magic. It was quick and it was easy. Now it's broken and it gets progressively worse. One day you need to edit an item once and then drag and drop will work on it, the next day it's completely broken. I don't think anyone has to explain how garbage it is trying to use the SharePoint backend menus for trying to customize anything to do with UX...

  18. SharePoint Online Admin Center

    Here are my experiments and findings so far:
    As global admin
    1) From the SharePoint Admin Settings, selected the "Hide users from creating site". This disabled the option to create a site from SharePoint for both users as well as Admins(not the requirement)

    2) Workaround: Create groups from Admin Portal and get connected to the site created along with it, but even users can do so by creating groups from OWA and following the same procedure. This also results in creation of a new site enabled for users. In order to curb this we should restrict users from creating even…

  19. Make the personal information seen function can be managed altogether in Administration page.

    Because personal information can be seen in each function, it is difficult to manage.
    It would be really helpful if it can be managed altogether in one place of Administration page.

  20. Add Promotes site feature functionality to SharePoint Online

    I think Promotes site feature was a simple, nice and useful feature in SharePoint 2013. It gave SharePoint admin capability to list relevant important sites links for specific set of users and it was manageable from SharePoint 2013 Central Admin.
    I’m not sure why this functionality has been removed from SharePoint online. You can still find “Manage Promote sites” under SharePoint Online admin center-->User Profile-->My site setting but once you add some links with relevant target Audiences to the list there is no place for this web part to appear on SharePoint Online. Previously in SharePoint 2013 this web part…
