  1. Central administration rights for web UI

    I have setup where external suplier developing sharepoint apps. They should have only Read Interface to CA, which is possible to grant only for POSH. The Web UI is a step above.

  2. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Block Files Base on Name not Extension

    My company doesn't use quotas on our SharePoint 2013 environment. Over the course of a few months, a user managed to upload 2TB of data to their SP site. A lot of file names began with 'SBSE_' which is associated to a file sync and backup program. Unfortunately, you can only block file extensions, but not any portion of the file name. It would be useful to be able to exclude file names to help with issues such as this?

  8. Concierge icon

    You should have a concierge icon listed with the other icons at https://portal.office.com/Catalog?add=sub&adminportal=0 so that we can tell which Office 365 we are getting 24/7 Concierge support with.

  9. User not displayed in "Set Credentials for Secure Store Target Application"

    The current user of a Secure Store Service Target Application cannot be displayed. I can only set a new user via "Set Credentials" but not display the current user.
    Please display the user in the "Set Credentials" dialog.

  10. limit visibility of users in the Share button ( like for example in Exchagne a

    Be able to have a group of people that are not allowed to see other users when clicking the Share button.
    We have customers ( law firms for example) with 2 sets of users
    - Internal people ( that can see all users )
    - Extranet users ( they need more than a simple external login so they have Office 365 licences but they should not be able so see the names of other Extranet users, or at least see only a certain types of users)
    - when they click on the SHARE button for a document if they type…

  11. Show Category When Adding App on Site

    The App Catalog already allows us to specify a Category, similar to what we can with Web Parts. These categories are however only surfaced when directly browsing the Apps for SharePoint document library inside the App Catalog. It would be nice if the same category would be visible for end users adding an App/Add-In to their site. This is would be similar functionality to the public SharePoint Store.

  12. Automate fixing Alert notification time when Daylight Savings Time starts and ends

    When Daylight Savings Time ends or begins all alerts already in the system get sent an hour earlier or later. A workaround for this is to use PowerShell to touch all alerts in the system to trigger an update to the cached notification time in the database. I think it'd be nice if SharePoint could automatically do this when DST starts and ends instead of me having to manually run a script twice a year.

  14. Started Services on Server

    Filter Started Services on Server to only be visible as another "view" for "Started" instead of only "Configurable" "All" as the two options. Multiple Application and Web Servers make it challenging to find out what services are running with all the "Stopped"

  17. Have it Written with asp.net 5

    a. It would be very cool that during the installation, it will go get what is still missing as a NuGet package instead of giving a nasty error.
    b. Self-updateable if we so wish.
    c. Smaller footprint will make somewhat quicker maybe.

  20. HNSC Zones

    Increase the zones that can be created with HNSC from 5 to more than that as sometimes we need to have vanity URLs pointing to the same HNSC
