  5. Ability to move files from the Sharepoint App

    I'm surprised this is not already available, or even on the Idea list! I've created a Sharepoint site dedicated to one of our medical clients, but our Doctors are unable to simply move a file from their 'patient files to be signed' section, to the 'signed patient files' from their mobile devices. Many of the patients require quick responses and have doctors that are constantly running from hospitals to hospital and cannot always be at a computer to do so.

    Simply having a file 'move' function either from the Sharepoint app, or from the OneDrive app -> Libraries -> Team…

  6. Change IM link to open the Teams app

    While using the SharePoint Mobile App for Android, if I click the IM option in the profile view it takes me to the Google Play store to install Skype for Business for Android. Given the push to have everyone move to Teams, it would make for sense for it to open the Teams app. Or at least have an option in the SharePoint app to choose which you would like to use.

  7. I cannot upload files to the folders on mobile. This is very annoying.

    Allow photos and other files to be uploaded to the folders just like you can do on the desktop version of this same application

  8. Add the settings to disable signing in to SharePoint app from other tenant accounts.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):SharePoint アプリで別テナントのアカウントでのサインインを禁止する機能

    Add the settings to disable signing in to SharePoint app from other tenant accounts.


    ■Description(内容):
    Intune で OneDrive アプリは別テナントのアカウントでのサインインを禁止できたが、SharePoint アプリについては、Intune で制限することができないことが判明した。このため、他のテナントのアカウントで SharePoint アプリにサインインできなくできるような機能を提供してほしい。

    As a standard feature, the Intune management can be restricted the sign-in from another tenant's account of the OneDrive app. However, we found that the SharePoint app cannot be restricted by Intune.

    We believe that it should have the same functionality between SharePoint and OneDrive, so please add the settings that prevent signing in to SharePoint app from other tenant accounts.

  9. Shortcuts/favorites

    It would be nice if you could more easily navigate to favorite folders if you have access to multiple sites/folders for quicker access

  10. A desktop view that's identical to the computer.

    Navigation seems to be nonexistent on mobile, so instead of trying to fix it just let me see exactly what I see on my computer (like a desktop vs. mobile version of a website).

  11. Need to be able to remove sites from Sharepoint app easily

    The Sharepoint app adds sites to "Recent" and "Followed" lists easily, but I can't see a way to remove a site, even if it has been deleted/renamed in sharepoint.

    Need a way to stop these lists filling up with test sites and other garbage in the early days of learning the O365 tools.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. Download files direct to the android device and / or attach files in email application direct from SharePoint

    To email documents (not email the link to a document) I cannot download the file to my device.
    Also need the option to attach the document directly to email - as can be done with Google Drive. Much faster.

  20. Quick Links to External Websites

    Up until the most recent release, Quick Links to external websites would open normally with the Android App. Since the last update users are presented with a blank screen. Please restore this functionality!
