    • Reduce dependency on Office Graph for home page, and include support for list views

      As is, the app requires Office Graph to be enabled in the tenant in order to show anything useful in the home page. Without it, there is no content and only provides a very limited view of list content (with rather poor representation of any custom lists).

      • Photo Gallery Web-Part Does Not Work in SharePoint iOS App

        Although you can view thumbnails within a photo-gallery, tapping on a thumbnail produces no result.

        Furthermore, this causes all navigation on the page to freeze (no scrolling); the only option at this point is to use the top level navigation to return to your "frequent sites" or "subscribed sites" page.

        Using this method, you are able to return to the homepage (tenant level) of the site that has the photo gallery. Tapping and holding on any link within the homepage prompts the last image you tried to tap to pop up momentarily.

        This behavior is observed in both communications and…

        • Substantially improve the functionalities (Lists, Navigation control and main page)

          There are lots of functionalities that does not work in the app. Examples:
          1. Usage of lists - Lookups does not work (fields appear as read only), and not even the mandatory fields are respected
          2. Its possible to navigate to the list via web site navigation, via the home page, but the path is significant... Go to home page and need to choose to open the page with Safari otherwise the page gets with very bad looking
          3. Moreover taking into account those limitations, it should be possible control what appear in the main page (here exist now the…

          • Possibility to follow sites with K1 plan

            The intranet in the pocket for our deskless workers only works when you can follow sites with K1 plan. Without the following feature the news and following sites tab remains empty and nobody uses the App.

                  Lists in mobile view have a 20-item limit for lookups. A higher limit would be most appreciated.

                  • When opening the public site links from in the sharepoint app they don't shape to fit the mobile screen and can't rotate landscape either

                    When opening up the public sites from links in sharepoint app it doesn't become the mobile friendly view. You can't see most of the page. You also can't turn the device landscape as it does not rotate to go landscape to show the width of the page. This makes it unusable in the app or on the device but we wish to use it.

                    • Top bar navigation

                      When an intranet is designed in SharePoint the top bar is a crucial part of the user experience. The app ignores this and relies on hierarchy to develop the user journey. A lot of users have no clue about the hierarchy of SharePoint sites in an intranet.

                      In the same way the left navigation is built into the app, so should the top bar be. Or at least an option to have it available or not.

                      The app is a good start, but we need more settings and configuration or it will annoy consumers.

                                Sharepoint Calendar categories.
                                If you amend existing / create your own, they do not not show up on the mobile Sharepoint app. If you have calendar overlays on your SP site the events entered on mobile app with "old standard style" category do not show!! Why must the mobile view default to the standard calendar categories???

                                    • SharePoint app does not work with Claims/Kerberos

                                      There are two major issues.
                                      1. The app assumes there is only one extranet, and automatically sets up the first scanned site based on parent domain rather than ask for the URL upfront. While additional sites can be added, it makes it useless for a multi-tenant environment as it isn't viable for clients or their confidentiality.

                                      2. The app does not know how to digest HTTP2 headers with Claims over Kerberos Auth, which is the recommended authentication model, and vastly superior to NTLM.

                                        I really wish I could see the documents in my project folders right in sharepoint app. Very confusing that it opens in one drive when I choose documents tab, and it doesn't work when it opens in one drive anyway

                                        • 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.
