  4. utilize lync meeting instead of outbound call only support

    I posted rescue request from Office 365 Admin page and Microsoft Japan team provided me for their good support, but their way of communication is just through outbound only call and Microsoft Japan does not accept my call-back which is very inconvenient.

    While I understand that Microsoft does not want to accept inbound call because of resource allocation difficulties, I don't understand why Microsoft forces them to call and not allow them to use Lync meeting.

    Since all of us use Lync, if they want to communicate with us to make sure that their support is sufficient, why not set…

  5. Custom tile not available

    365 office Custom tile not available/ not possible to customize because it requires Exchange Online mailbox assigned. Like to add a SharePoint tile but unable due to the above reason.

    Why should users be forced to subscribe to Exchange online to enable tile customization?

  6. UI experience

    The Powershell script in https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/Switch-the-default-experience-for-lists-or-document-libraries-from-new-or-classic-66dac24b-4177-4775-bf50-3d267318caa9?ui=en-US&rs=en-IE&ad=IE has a comment to "Disable the new UI" but this doesn't disable the new UI at all - so the either the Powershell script is wrong OR the PG are sending mixed messages.

    Either way the customer wants to know how they turn off the new UI completely until such time Microsoft can sort all the problems and bugs and it becomes a product fit for purpose.

  8. How about a Fix for SharePoint 2013 installer.

    Come on, guys. This just won't do:

    Attempting to install any variety of SharePoint 2013 on a machine that has the .NET Framework 4.6.1 on it fails because the SharePoint installer says that it can't find .NET Framework 4.5.

    Yeah, seriously.

    The prerequisite installer happily accepts 4.6.1 (as it should), but the product installer makes a newbie mistake in wanting "4.5" but not "4.5 or later".

    Trying to downgrade 4.6.1 is a nightmare because it's inexcusably poorly documented (Aaron Stebner's blog post at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2016/03/04/mailbag-how-to-revert-to-older-versions-of-the-net-framework-4-family/#comment-37506) gives the only clear idea of what you have to do - uninstall a KB.

  10. Update Audience in Navigation Heading

    I went to People and Groups and renamed a SharePoint Group from Fun-Together to "Fun Together" and went I went to Navigation and changed the Audience for a Navigation Heading (A document Library) in SharePoint 2013 Enterprise Edition SP1, it did NOT update the audience, it has a red underline. I had to update it by deleting it and adding the correct one "Fun Together." I do NOT think it is the spaces, I believe it is that it is different and audiences are not updating it. I don't know if a timerjob fixes this, but I noticed this after…

  11. O sharepoint mais integrado ao onedrive e com mais funcionalidades do office em uma maquina.

    O Sharepoint se mostrou uma ótima saída para meus negócios, e achei bastante repetitivo e redundante com relação ao OneDrive, causando uma certa confusão. Acredito que os dois se complementam mas com possibilidades de existir apenas um. Acredito que o Sharepoint possa fazer tudo o que faz mais as funcionalidades do OneDrive, se complementando onde automaticamente toda a biblioteca do OneDrive estivesse no SharePoint e o mesmo do SharePoint no OneDrive. Gostaria que o SharePoint fosse capaz de funcionar com todas as ferramentas do office, como por exemplo mala direta. Senti falta de muita coisa que so tenho acesso em…

  14. Fix additional filters on relared items

    If you have two lists - say Client and BillingCode, where each billingCode has a client column, and some other filterable columns. If you add the related items widget to the client form it correctly filters BillingCodes.
    However, you cannot filter by any of the other columns.

  17. Use custom master page on new document library and Site content experience

    Custom master page is not used in newly introduced Document Library experience and Site content experience. If we are using custom master page and then user goes to Site Content or Document Library it looks like he has end up in different place (because it looks differently).

  18. Add Multiple Webparts at Once

    When creating a page or updating one, you may have multiple webparts that you want to add. You have to click, add, wait, then click, add, wait. Why not click a bunch, with Ctrl-Click or something to select a bunch, maybe a "mulitiple button" and then checkbox and then put them on the page.
    Also allow for several webparts to have the same updates say all 3 I select have Audience of xyz.

  20. Excluding Site Mailboxes from People Picker autosuggestions

    When for example sharing content or assigning permissions as an end user you use a people picker that has an autosuggest feature, showing suggestions in a dropdown as you type. This autosuggest feature looks up objects from the active directory without any filtering and there is no way to configure this. So if you for example you enable the site mailbox feature, this creates an object in active directory that is not a user and not a security group. This is not an object that you would like to be presented in the people picker. An option to configure this…
