  2. Using web applications from the SharePoint app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint アプリからの Web アプリケーションの利用について
    Using web applications from the SharePoint app


    現在 Intune 登録したデバイスから AppProxy 経由でオンプレミスの Web アプリケーションを利用することはごく当たり前のソリューションとなっており、AndroidスマートフォンでSharePoint Onlineを利用する場合はやはり専用アプリの方が、プッシュ通知やニュースの閲覧など利便性の高い状況である。

    上記前提に基づき、本社支給の Android スマートフォンでは SharePoint アプリの導入を推奨してきたが、SharePoint アプリで企業ポータル(SharePointサイト)を表示し、メニュー上にある AppProxy 経由でオンプレミスの Web アプリケーションにアクセスすると未登録デバイスとして認識されてしまいアクセスができない。

    上記の動作であるため、下記の無駄なリソース消費が起きている。
    ・SharePointアプリからブラウザへの切り替え【年間12,000時間の損失】
    [5,000人規模×1分×144日(営業日を240日と仮定し、その6割の日に操作を実施)]
    ・AzureAD、Intune、SharePoint の 3 担当者による切り分けに伴う弊社の対応【6時間の損失】
    上述のことから、Intune 登録したデバイスから、SharePoint アプリ にて AppProxy 経由で Web アプリケーションを利用できるよう機能の改善を要望します。

    Currently, using on-premises web applications from Intune registered devices via AppProxy is becoming a more widespread solution, and when using SharePoint Online on an Android smartphone, the dedicated app is still better for push notifications and news, making it very convenient.

    Based on this, it has been recommended that we introduce the…

  3. Excel and Word Android apps closing when trying to open the document from SharePoint

    When I click on an Excel spreadsheet or a Word document, it shows a quick view of the contents with the excel logo on the bottom right hand corner of the screen. When I click on it, the excel splash screen shows... And closes right after

  4. Option to change the internal browser in the SharePoint app

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint アプリの内部ブラウザーを変更する機能の拡充を希望
    Option to change the internal browser in the SharePoint app


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、スマートフォンの SharePoint アプリにおいて、内部ブラウザーを任意で変更する機能の提供に至っていないことを確認しました。
    SharePoint アプリ上にて、Intune の設定を利用してる場合、現在の内部ブラウザーでは対象の URL へアクセス出来ない状況であることから、内部ブラウザーを変更する機能の拡充を希望します。
    SharePoint アプリの内部ブラウザーを変更させることにより、よりセキュアかつ円滑に活用していきたいと考えています。

    Currently, in the SharePoint smartphone app, there is no way to change the internal browser.
    In cases where Intune settings are used in the SharePoint app, you cannot access affected URLs in the current internal browser, so please make it possible to change the internal browser.
    If it was possible to do this, you could access pages smoothly with more security.

  6. Make standard mobile access work

    When a site is set to be active for mobile and a presentation is chosen as standard - it should be so. It is not.

  7. The Home Site icon in the SharePoint app should match the text colour in the header.

    When the header is white, the icon is invisible. I have a client who have spent time and resources their branding, but users cannot easily find the home site in the way that we said they could.

  8. Sharepoint APP view - why is there "LAST EDITED" on top and files below?

    Sharepoint APP view - why is there "LAST EDITED" on top and files below? Files are the most important part on system, to me. I suggest that user can choose the App view what is disllayed first : file tree or Last Edited

  9. Using sharepoint app by pressing "BACK" BUTTON

    Using sharepoint app by pressing "BACK" BUTTON is annoying as this action throws you back to main page. On a computer pressing Back is bringing you up 1 level not 10 levels.

  10. New group

    I get added to new groups all the time for school projects. Please automatically put those new groups I'm added to by others on my SharePoint home screen. I can't see or do anything with files in SharePoint unless I manually add each new group to my SharePoint home from my computer. This makes the app almost unusable

  15. Add a search facility

    It would be good to be able to search for files, and then order them by things like name, date or type. It's incredible that this is so difficult on what is, after all, a file manager.

  16. Allow guest access with personal account

    Currently, those users can't get use the Sharepoint app, because they are requested to use a work/school account. This is not consistent with the PC/Mac/browser experience.

    Allow use of drawing function in PDF files saved in document libraries via the SharePoint mobile app


    ■Description(内容):
    PCのブラウザで、SharePoint Online にアクセスした際は、ドキュメント ライブラリに保存された PDF ファイルにて描画機能を利用して、ペンで文字を書いたり、マーカーで線を引いたるできる。
    しかし、SharePoint モバイル アプリで ドキュメント ライブラリに保存された PDF ファイルでは描画機能が利用できないため、SharePoint モバイル アプリでも描画機能が利用できるように希望します。

    If you access SharePoint Online from a PC browser, you can use the drawing function to write or highlight content in PDF files held in document libraries.
    However you cannot use this from the SharePoint mobile app, so please add this.

  20. Select tenant when sharing news posts

    I wish we had the ability to select a tenant when sharing a news post via the SharePoint app. Right now, the last tenant visited in the SharePoint app is the one that news posts will be posted to when sharing an item from the web. In order to select a different tenant for sharing a news post, I must first open the SharePoint app and switch to the desired tenant, and then go back to the item I want to share in order to post it.
