  1. Intranet Portal development to the back office

    Hi all,

    My department is thinking of approaching an intranet portal development company- https://global-infonet.com/ to implement an intranet portal to our back office. The idea is to have a page to show and allow only the company IP. A few other that we’d like are:


    • Detailed employee directory with employee social profiles.

    • Social element with employee status updates.

    • Robust internal messaging system.

    • File directory integration with Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.

    • Hierarchical access within the department

    • Employee specific calendar, auto-populated with important dates for meetings, events and deadlines for that employee or user.

    • Share files between one another, including…

  2. People

    We could really use a people search webpart or a better overall experience with people search, other than users having to navigate to search.aspx/people in order to actually search for people.
    Many companies are asking for this and it makes no sense that people search is "hidden" away like this.

  3. Exclude SharePoint site from the search

    Please add option on excluding SharePoint site from the search. We set different permissions to limite access to the site. The site still searchable and come up with list of relative content, while this setting doesn't give access to the full content, we would want to have option for the site not being pickup by the search at all.

  5. Modern document library search: no results due to filtered default view

    I have found a "feature" that I feel needs to be addressed, so am turning to the community for support; basically within the modern interface, within a document library the search bar will allow the user to search all documents within the library.

    This works brilliantly, except when there is a filter applied to the default view. The results are then filtered by the default view, and invariably little or no results are returned. You are unable at this stage to change the view, to display the expected results.

    The only solution appears to be to click on the "Search…

  7. Add search capability for searching the file contents of script files

    Could Microsoft please add search capability for searching the file contents of script files (.sql, .cmd, .bat, .vbs, .js, .cs) since they are primarily text files.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/SharePoint/technical-reference/default-crawled-file-name-extensions-and-parsed-file-types

    Alternatively it would be great if we had an option to add custom file types for files that we would like parsed. We are using SharePoint 365 and there isn't an option to do so.

  10. Add the facility to OneDrive or to a separate application to mimic "Open in explorer"

    Add the facility to OneDrive or to a separate application to mimic "Open in explorer" - this needs to be solved and fast.

    At the moment it's a nightmare to open a folder in explorer everytime!

  11. EXPORT METADATA already existing in CSV

    We know that metadata can be imported from a CSV file but I am suprised that the inverse action is not possible. I mean export metadata in CSV could be great for save time when we developp a new site.

  12. Avail a true advanced search with extended capabilities

    The current SPO advanced search is nothing more than a regular search.

    It should include:
    - fuzzy search
    - extended wildcard support (regex-like)
    - proximity search
    - typo corrections
    - document type search (XLSX, ...)
    - case sensitivity options
    - author search or filtering ...

    Thanks !

  13. URL encoder "%20" in search results

    Until recently, if the results page from SP search was linked, the URL encoder "%20" was replaced with an actual space in the search box. This isn't the case anymore though, making links to search results pointless.

  14. Fix search results for SharePoint 2019 filenames with special characters - 404 Not Found

    SharePoint 2019 filenames with "#" breaks search result links resulting in an error: 404 Not Found.

    The '#' is not url encoded in the quick search results link.

  15. Improve visibility/usability of navigating the levels of search.

    I think the contextual search (ie list/library, site) are good to have but the transition from one to the other or to 'organization' search is not very good/consistent.

    At the bottom of the page on doc library; 'hidden' in breadcrumbs in the site search.

    People just don't NOTICE!

  16. Add 'hit' highlight like in Delve search

    SP search does not have hit highlight like in Delve search (or on this page :) ) For content in libraries and lists in particular it would be nice to at least see number of hits somehow in results returned. But in Organization results it would certainly be valuable.

  17. Results in filter on "Single line of text" field - don't respect the filters from other fields

    When using filter on a choice or lookup column, and then do a filter on a "single line of text" field by using the search box, when results are are based on all items on the list, and not only the results based on the filter set in choice or lookup column.
    Would only make sense that the results are based on the selected filters.

  19. Enable full-text searching within document libraries and folders

    Hello there, we would like to ask to build / change the way how is Sharepoint Search center working right now. Currently there arent options how to filter for example specific folder where to search or not. We have just 2 options and thats search in site / organization. This is frustrating, because when you have 14 Sites with tons of data and searching for one little thing in site it will just give you bunch of results that are confusing at the time. Instead of that we would like to search in specific folder / document library. Whether it…

  20. Implement merge of web, & folder properties with document and list item properties. & Speed up indexing of websites.

    Common problem we have is that all documents in website have set of properties related to place in which they are stored like Project name, project type, location ........ when indexer indexing documet metadata, properties from web , folders and item should be combined, so we should be able make query and retrieve them. And another limitation is that when we change web properties, this properties are updated pretty slowly it take more than 72hours, properties of newly created websites are indexed in near realtime but not when we update web properties
