  3. Pinned term auto updates

    When using a "PIN Term with Children" to place items in a site collection navigation from a single source (global navigation), the pinned items should auto update if the source term set is updated. Currently you have to delete and re-pin all the site collections.

  4. Ability to name versions in version history

    Currently SharePoint online creates versions on it owns as users continue to edit the content and some times is not very helpfull because you have to comb through 20 different versions to get to the version you want to restore.It would be great if you could name a version like you can in google sheets so you know what exact version you can roll back to.

  6. target audience list view

    I would love the ability to apply target audiences to a particular list view. This would allow me to bypass the 3rd party and blame all my issues on Microsoft. :) But seriously, the ability for hundreds of folks to be able to submit a request, but only see the requests they submitted seems like it ought to already be a thing. While the supervisors and approvers could see all items and all views.

  9. enable search administrator role

    Like Report Reader, it would be great to add a Search Administrator who can setup search on the entire tenant.

  10. Approval Workflow Data Sources Broken in SharePoint Online - Need fixed please!

    Perhaps the community can help figure this out or get a message to the product team for me. Our approval workflows broke about a month ago (August 14 2018) in SharePoint Online, I have been on Microsoft Partner Cloud Support for over a month back and forth and am on the 7th technician who cannot figure this out. This is simple to recreate the issue on SharePoint online, as I have shown 7 separate technicians how to recreate the issue and have included in the instructions below. The error I started getting in the workflow history was: error: "Coercion Failed:…

  13. Add Contextual Help

    Create little help icons next to each of the actions or fields in the various forms in the SharePoint Admin Center. When you hover, you'd get brief summary description which includes inks to specific relevant help pages for more information (external pages should open in new window).

  14. Make the configuration up Sharepoint a little closer to what clients need by asking more questions during the initial setup.

    When setting up a new tenant, the default settings should result in a more easily useable Sharepoint environment. For example, I've had to put in support tickets for activating features like Sharing files/folders with users outside the tenant despite the option being available at the folder/file level. The Microsoft support tech took almost a day and a half to find the resolution.

    The need to collaborate with others outside your own organization is almost the norm today, so why make that feature a switch that must be hunted for and turned on? During initial setup of the tenant, ask a…

    LET USERS ENTER/EDIT their profile information, specifically their email. We DO NOT use exchange or AD, so only admin can update that field, and they have to in the Sharepoint Admin Portal. It used to be a function but it was removed.

  18. SharePoint Online: Paging does not work in New experience mode for libraries and lists

    The paging only works when in the “Classic mode” for the libraries and lists. It does not display paging number after clicking the “Exit classic experience” link.
    Can paging be incorporated in the “New experience mode” for libraries and lists?

    Thanks
