      Just a quick update that we are working on this. We are planning some quick releases to start addressing some of these issues.


      One possibility is that when you connect to SharePoint OnPrem via HTTPS while using a non publicly trusted SSL certificate. Could you confirm if that is the situation you have?

    • Allow access to files without opening OneDrive

      It is confusing for users to move in and out of SharePoint app and OneDrive. We want our users to have one single place to access all content - there is no need for OneDrive if user is just browsing content on an intranet.

      • Open document links in SharePoint

        If a colleague sends you a SharePoint link in an email, it would be great if there is an option in Outlook which opens the link in the SharePoint App rather than the default web browser.

        • Workflow

          Workflow is one of the most powerful feature of SharePoint.. It would be great to see the notifications, reviews, actions like approve-reject-sendback, etc. to be available in the exciting SP app.. Let me know if I can contribute having expertise to workflows! Overall a truly needed app..

            • Show pages as they are browser

              I expected to open the app and see my home page of SharePoint as if I were on any browser with enhanced navigation of the objects on the sites.

                  • Yeap, same experince as web app, not a feeling of a mobile native app. I would expect Microsoft SharePoint mobile app to act like Harmon.ie

                    iOS users don't need another browser experience from a mobile app, I wanted to be able to have a somewhat experience like Harmon.ie where you choose list and libraries to update and documents to open, not just pinch and expand on full sites, I can do that with iPad and laptops

                      • Allow me to upload files to my document library from the app

                        I wanted to be able to upload a photo from my mobile device directly into the document library. I was instead forced to launch the one drive app that I didn't have.

                                • Managed App Configuration for MDM

                                  It is mentioned in the blogs that the SharePoint app supports managed app configuration for using with an MDM to pre-configure the app, before distributing to users.
                                  This sounds great - where can I read more on this? Is there a documentation for the configuration to set?

                                  • "Followed Sites" funktion should work for restored Site Collections with same Site IDs

                                    With SharePoint 2013 on premise it is possible restore site collections out of a site collection backup (restore-SPSite). For those Site Collections the “Follow” Feature works perfect within the browser although all Site Collections have the same unique Site Collection ID.

                                    Please change the “Followed Sites” Feature in the iOS app so it will work like within the browser.
                                    At the moment we can’t use the iOS App because of our backup/restore rollout approach for new Site Collections. The app shows only one entry although I’m following several Site Colelctions.
                                    My assumption is that within the App the Site Collection…

                                      If you use a list for something like IT issues, you should be able to add an item to that list, a client should be able to add their broken computer issue to the list for the admin to fix. And the admin able to keep the client up to date with the fix without having to go to a desktop version to update the issue.

                                          Currently on team sites appear in the app. Sites built using the project template don't show up. How do we get to document libraries in project sites?
