  3. SharePoint app makes Group files inaccessible

    With SharePoint app installed, when attempting to browse files in Office 365 groups I receive "No Files Yet" message in SharePoint and "Folder is Empty" messages in OneDrive app. As soon as SharePoint app is uninstalled, access to the files in these groups returns.

  5. Open external links in browser

    Open links to sites outside of SharePoint.com domain in a browser by default. The SharePoint app doesn't handle 3rd party web app authentication well. For example, if you open your SharePoint Online site in the app and then select a link from a page in your SharePoint online site to your on-prem site, it gives a 404 error. The SharePoint app features also differ from what users expect to be able to do in their default browser with web apps other than SharePoint. After you select an external link in the SharePoint app, there is an option to open it…

  7. Sharepoint: Mobile improvement needed - Easy Upload of files

    On Mobile Sharepoint App: After creating a folder to upload to, it says to add files tap the + sign. But there is no + sign to tap. I have to go out and go back in to get the + sign which takes many taps to upload a photo to a folder :(. Need the + sign to show up after creating the folder so I can upload files to it instantly!

  10. Hide Lists in Mobile App (not by removing permissions)

    Since Lists are "promoted" in the App it is pretty simple for users to Access Config Lists used for settings on pages or workflows. It would be great if theres an Option in the list settings to not Show those lists in mobile app like the Default lists are right now (MicroFeed, Style Library, ...)

  14. Desktop apps cloud integration

    Users love shortcuts and their desktop word excel. The integration /sync between cloud storage and desktop apps is flaky. One drive sync crashes a lot.
    Maybe ditch desktop office and go pure web word and excel with full feature set.

  15. There is no way to handle several SharePoint calendars with an Android smartphone.

    Usually this should be possible with the outlook app. Instead because of any mysterious reason I can connect a lot of strange elements like Facebook calendar but not the own team calendar from SharePoint.

  17. Communication Site push to notification tray

    Hi we are running office 365 with sharepoint and I cannot work out how to get a push notification to my android notification tray. As an example I have a SharePoint communication site with three members and we all follow the site. We have the sharepoint app on our mobiles (android and IOS) and if any of us publishes a new news item a notification appears in the "News from Sites" folder in the app however we are not getting push notifications to the device notification tray. (Push notifications is enabled in the app.)
    Any advice would be gratefully received.

  19. Edit in Office Apps for On Premises

    Currently, it's not possible to edit office files (word, excel, powerpoint, onenote) with the Android apps when you're connected to a SharePoint Server on premises.
    The apps tell me that I don't have the rights to edit files with my account. They want me to login with an Office 365 account. But this isn't possible because the Server is only on premises.

    Please allow us to edit files with an on premises SharePoint Server.

  20. PIN unlock with Fingerprint ID

    Having a fingerprint unlock feature (with app PIN set) would be good for good for business/enterprise account users. Features like SmartLock on Android devices could potentially leave business documents open to unauthorised access if the phone screen is not locked.

    Having a PIN with fingerprint access is just an additional security measure that I think most users would appreciate having.
