  3. Push notification on the app once user follows the site

    Currently, users only receive a push notification for a news on the site via SharePoint mobile app if the news is published by someone in their management chain or someone with whom they communicate often.

    It would be great if the push notification was based on the site following feature - a user followed a site -> the user receives a push notification everytime a news is published on that site.

  4. 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.

  6. 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!

  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

    I can't upload files to SharePoint using my smartphone or other mobile devices. Uploading files MUST be made MUCH easier.

    Android SharePoint Calendar needs to show Catagories, be color-coded and show attachments in view mode. It also needs the ability to select custom categories that have been added to the categories list.

  11. 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

  12. 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).

  14. Allow Sharepoint Attachments (photos) to be Viewed Without Downloading

    Our corporate policy does not permit downloading of attachments to users personal phones. We have a sharepoint list with photos attached. I'd like to be able to view the photos from within the sharepoint app. Right now I can only view the thumbnail. If I click the icon, I get a "policy restricted - cannot download" message.

  16. 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.

  20. 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.
