  4. Create search result source from RESTful endpoint

    It would be great to be able to create a result source from a REST endpoint that returns the results in a JSON data set. This would potentially make it easier to federate other systems into SharePoint search (for example, Wikimedia - does not fully implement ODATA endpoint as ATOM formatted, but it does have the ability to return JSON results - which could be templated into a JSON item type display template and mapped to fields of the results)

  5. Provide ability to search ALL services available in O365

    SPO search should be able find any content created by a service available in O365, i.e., Sway, PowerBI, Project, PowerApps etc. SPO admins should be able to additional content sources from these other services and the results should be made available through the SP Search web parts.

  6. Remove the 500 item limit in sitemap.xml

    In SharePoint 2016 there's a scheduled job that auto-generates a sitemap (sitemap.xml -> sitemap0.xml and sitemap_mobile0.xml) which should be an index of all the pages/content in your site (very useful on public facing sites and for submitting to Google and Bing).

    However, it turns out there's a 500 item limit on this. MS obviously thought no one would ever have more than 500 items on a public facing website...

    Please remove this limit, or at least have it configurable.

  8. 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.)

  9. 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.

  10. 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,…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
