  1. In the SharePoint mobile app, I would like to also be able to search news articles. Search results goes straight to files right now.

    I can search for files and sites but I'm not getting results for words that are in content on my communication sites Orr modern

  3. The ability to add a folder from sharepoint as a favourite folder

    If you could have a favourite folder tab inside the app, that would be a great way to access a certain folder on sharepoint quickly.

  6. The frequent and followed sites list in the SharePoint App and One Drive App

    The frequent and followed sites list in the SharePoint App don't match the frequent and followed sites list on the One Drive App.

    In my mind they should be running the exact same query to get this information so why the difference?

  7. Open multiple PDF files

    Our organisation would like the ability to open more than one PDF files from the app. They find this useful in meetings and can do this in our 3rd party sharepoint app.

  8. Issues with Content organizer and workflow don’t start if the content Is created by the content organizer

    we have this trouble: It is by design that the content organizer will route content as a SharePoint system account. Due to security reasons, declarative workflows can no longer be triggered by the system account.
    could you please provide a solution,fix or workaround?

  9. 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…

  11. 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.

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

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    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 ファイルにて描画機能を利用したい。
    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.

    Make it possible to view PDF's from external websites in the SP Browser. We see a "Sorry there are no apps installed that can open this type of file" error when using the SP Browser on an external site.

  15. Hard to Navigate

    Instead of starting on a main page (list of all events posted, in my case), it starts with links to the most recently viewed pages followed by other links, like favorites, etc. I have to hope that I can go to one of those links and be able to link back to the main page so that I can then use the main page to navigate to the event that I'm trying to access.

    Btw, trying to have this box come up, in order to provide advice (on uservoice), was also a pain. If you don't really want my advice,…

  16. Overlap between SharePoint and Teans

    It's a real mind Bender to find o figure out when to use SharePioint vs. Teams. Teams development has matured so much that it duplicates a lot of what SharePoint does.

  19. Open Bing maps in Mobile's default map

    I have added a Bing maps on modern page.
