  1. Enable search results as OData stream that is readable by Excel/PowerBI

    Especially when having content of a certain type spread over multiple webs and sites, search provides a good way to aggregate this information, e.g. get all risks tracked in all project sites. It would be great if these results could be exposed as Odata stream to be directly integrated in the reporting tool of your choice.

  2. Default contextual scoping till current library/list level rather than current site

    I would like either ability to have automatic contextual scoping till library/list level in sharepoint main search or search within list/library should sort results based on search relevance not sorted based on name. By sorting search results based on name within library search it doesnt make sense because relevant document is displayed at the very bottom if its name dies start from initial alphabet letters (a,b,c, ..)

  3. Find Office 365 Groups in Search

    Find relevant Office 365 Groups in the search. Now that the SharePoint homepage has been updated it is almost impossible to find some Groups to follow. (Also, the follow feature does not seem to be working.)

  4. SharePoint Home activity page - show libraries as separate cards

    Current behaviour lists activity within libraries under the main tenant card. If all libraries are attached to tenant site and not sub-sites, then all activity within all libraries constrained to 3 lines of text.

  5. Content Type and Site Column Naming

    Naming of Content Types and Site Columns should not be Unique.
    As both content types and site columns are identified uniquely by CT Id and internal field name, it should be possible to give a display name for content type or site column, even if the display name is already in use.
    This way we can avoid al sorts of strangely named content types or fields, because of the current limitation, and still be able to use the different columns in the search schema

  6. Fix eDiscovery for MicroFeed data

    When doing eDiscovery the result for MicroFeed data suffers a few flaws:
    - when a query returns a post, the preview for a post is useless for the human reader (the Display-Form of the MicroFeed-list is not equipped for that use)
    - when someone puts a hold on a post, he can't preserver the rest of the thread (formulating the extended query needed not possible, as the data model for the MicroFeed-List is not documented)
    - when exporting, the export is returned as CSV like for any other list; but as data model of teh Microfeed list is not documented,…

  7. In SharePoint Online, the search does not trim spaces at the end of search string for custom templates, resulting into "We dint find..".

    If I am creating a list from custom template and the name of template is "Project", but while searching for template I type "Project ", it says "Not Found". I think that, those extra spaces in search string for custom templates, at the end, should be trimmed, resulting into robust search.

  9. Support Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant OS configuration

    Implement all hashing and cryptography functions to support and run on Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant configured servers (security hardening).

    Currently FIPS has to be disabled - otherwise secure store service and search service applications will not properly run.

  10. Provide API to allow crawling of SharePoint online using a standalone (3PP) search engine. Today we do this for SP 2013.

    Provide API to allow crawling of SharePoint online using a standalone (3PP) search engine. Today we do this for SP 2013.

    We have been told in SP online that we must use a web crawler.

    That option would be complex for some of our websites and would limit the meta-data and security information available to us and make the search experience so much worse.

  13. Dynamic content crawling in SPO

    In SharePoint Online, dynamic content generated from JavaScript in a publishing web page is not crawled. In SP2010 it is possible using Browser Engine component. This really is an essential feature since lot of cx's have publishing sites with dynamic content in it.

  14. Multiple Files and Folders check-in and check should be done at a time

    There should be an option to do check-in/ out for multiple files and folder at a time. Because if we have to publish more then 2 files then we have to do this multiple times.
