  3. Mobile Logo Formatting

    The logo on the desktop is not constrained to a square, but the mobile app does. I have a wide banner-type logo so it shows up tiny in a colored box. Please free the aspect ratio so the logo is directly on the page in its correct aspect ratio.

  4. Wishing ”Mobile Browser View”to reflect on Mobile SharePoint app as it is set to the SharePoint site.

    I am unable to have users edit and post items when working through ”Mobile Browser View" even if they have the right to "Post".
    Although I make ”Mobile Browser View” invalidated within SharePoint site, once I open the item lists in the mobile SharePoint app, I still find them shown on "Mobile Browser View”. I think this is odd and I doubt that I will be able to see exactly the same behavior on mobile SharePoint app after attempting to make mobile browser view invalidated in SharePoint site. So far, I have seen no linkage in terms of operating environment.

  6. Different views in library

    In our portal we assigned common properties (tags) to each of the files uploaded to SharePoint document library. We have grouped them.
    Is it possible to show the different views. For example: Allows for filtering, grouping, sorting of documents based on their properties.

  7. Change site start page for app users

    Ability to change the start page of a site when opened in the app.
    Currently the site start page is the news and activity page.
    This gives users an inconsistent feel when using the desktop and mobile browser which both open the Home page

  8. Support photo libraries in OneDrive

    When accessing files in the SharePoint mobile app, it opens OneDrive and displays the file. However, when you try to access a photo library in SharePoint, it opens OneSrive and nothing happens. It seems like photo libraries aren't supported in OneDrive.

  14. Need the ability to filter by "assigned to" in task. Would also be helpful to see the assignee name in when viewing a task.

  15. No shared files visible

    Through the SharePoint app and once it kicks over to the OneDrive app there is no way to see files that have been shared with a SharePoint team site or a group. I need to be able to see these files somehow.

  16. Featured Links - icons in SharePoint Apps should be customizable.

    Right now the icons displayed under Featured Links in the SharePoint App are fixed. It would be nice if we can upload/use our own picture instead of the globe.

  19. Allow for Passcode /TouchID / Face Recognition for SharePoint

    We have some sensitive and very private documents in SharePoint. The mobile app needs to be secured in order to open. It is amazing that it is not. Please highly consider this!!!

  20. Doesn't work when published through Web Application Proxy

    The OnPrem side of things doesn't seem to work when the site is published through WAP, giving an error of not being able to determine the authentication. This unfortunately renders the app useless to our organisation. Disappointing first release that lacks features and looks like it was rushed out the door.
