  1. Allow Sharepoint Search to do a reverse image search to find powerpoint slides and other commonly used items.

    Many times, a company will have similar looking slides for things like proposals or capabilities presentations. If SharePoint Search or 'Bing for Business' had the ability to upload a picture of a slide and 'find similar, it would make finding every instance of a slide in our company very easy.

  2. Make updating your preferred language faster.

    Currently if a user wants to update his/her preferred language it can take up to 24 hours to be applied.

    Usually it is new users that have to do this and it doesn't help to convince them that this is a modern platform.

    In an easy world you can prefill the language for the user or script it but this is not always possible in real world scenario's.

    It shouldn't be that hard to apply this instantly.

  3. Include 'Private' Office 365 Group sites in a Content Search Web Part query

    When using a Content Search Web Part to list all sites to which you have access (i.e. https://yourdomain.sharepoint.com/sites/XXXX), only Team Sites and 'Public' Office 365 Group sites are exposed. Groups marked as 'Private' should also be retrieved assuming the logged-in user has access, the same way a standard Team Site is handled.

  7. Need a sorting function for selecting view of attachment files in Planner

    I can choose ascending order for Name or modified date in the SharePoint document view: click Add attachment > SharePoint on Task view in Planner. The order would be reset if I open the SPO documents view next time, so I would like to keep the order to be stable.

  9. SharePoint Online Search Caching Controls

    SharePoint Online Search cache displays "You've seen this result before" or "You've seen these results before". The information often represents content that has been removed or permissions changed -causing users to receive an error. Removing the URL from the tenant search settings doesn't help. There are other times when caching causes an issue with search results as well. However, at the very least, we need the ability to easily remove the "you've seen this result before" section out of the search results page without having to completely reset the search index for the entire tenant.

  12. Pls add paging to the highlighted content webpart (hcwp)

    We are about to build a search-driven Intranet with Communication Sites. Today we found out that there is a limit to the items shown in a hcwp, but we need it to be able to show all results found. A user must be able to "scroll" oder "page" through all content found by a managed property filter used in the hcwp. A hard cap limit to the results shown will break a search driven intranet, when content found can´t be viewed by the user because of a "view limit".

  13. (Bug) Get which documents are external Sharing via search working

    Before December, when you shared with an external user with email address, it added the user as a person part of your Active Directory. Now when you share with an external user, a Sharing Link is created and the person signs in with a code.

    It used to be that when a document was Shared externally, a managed property called "ViewableByExternalUsers=TRUE" it would bring back document shared externally. Since the new Sharing Links, this managed property doesn't seem to pick up that a document is shared externally.

    Also on the https://[tenant].sharepoint.com//_layouts/15/siteanalytics.aspx?view=19 used to display any documents that was externally shared.…

  16. Search

    When we share a Sharepoint folder through an anonymous link, without the need for recipient authentication, there is no way to perform a file search by typing the file name, but only by using the date and file type filters to sort them and find it those files inside the folder.

    This is very unproductive and makes it difficult to share sharepoint folders with external clients that do not have a Microsoft account

  17. Allow Thesaurus and Synonyms to work for People Search

    The thesaurus and synonyms do not work with the SharePoint People search. They work brilliantly with all the other content.

  18. Add a link to Classic Search Results on all modern search results displays

    Make the link to "Go to classic results page" appear in all Modern Search results pages

    It only appears when searching from SharePoint home.

  19. Override auto-detection of language settings

    Sharepoint indexing auto-detects the language of a file based on the available content. In case where indexable content is limited (eg DWG files) the results of defining the right language is very poor. To avoid wrong indexing (character sets, number detection) a feature to define override the language to use on file would be preferred.

  20. Classic vs Modern data missing

    Versioning turned on / Office 365 / Search for a specific folder.
    In Classic, several folders displayed (different dates). Latest folder contains 10 unique files.
    In Modern, only 1 folder is displayed and contains 4 files in total (all unique).

    Site and Libraries have been re-indexed.

    How do I get complete / consistent classic / modern results?
