  1. Eliminate the ability to delete/edit required objects

    It is currently possible to delete/change objects such as SP Groups and Content Types that SP depends on. When these items are changed, it is very difficult to troubleshoot and fix. MS needs to prevent us from accidentally breaking the software. Examples of this are the new SharePointOrgHome groups in SPO, the Title field for Items, the default Members group for a site etc.

  2. Improve support service for SharePoint user

    I have problem to install Sharepoint Designer. It should be a simple download and install procedurer. But I encountered problem. I contacted the support organization of Microsofts. They tried to solve the problem for 4 days without sucess. They could not solve the problem and they have no solution except telling me that it is most probably an issue of the operating system Windows. I asked if the support organization of SharePoint can transfer the issue to Windows support but they replayied that I must register a new case on Windows support. This is not customer friendly and the support…

  3. Creating Personal Views (Not Public Views) - User Friendly Suggestion for the Webpage Experience

    Document Library:

    As a user who will need to have many shortcuts, the process to create views is not seamless. The intuitive methodology would be to set filters, then save view somehow.

    Current Status Quo for personal views is either creating a public one, then templating a personal off of it, then deleting public

    -or-

    Going through a very menu intensive and manual process with high precision (keying exact Enterprise Tags and such). I would hope to have a user friendly interfacing for creating these views as well.

  9. Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant

    The Outlook team has already made this tool super handy for troubleshooting client-side issues when interfacing with Exchange.

    My end users are running the tool themselves and loving it. Why not throw in some basic troubleshooting scenarios for SharePoint?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.msoulscatWSSTimer, 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…

  16. 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
