    • SharePoint Help Site Template

      If there was a Site Template that came with some quick start cards or linked to useful videos regarding SharePoint functions. That would put something out there so that SharePoint Administrators could spin this up and then let the users who are more comfortable with self-lead educating or for that matter letting others potentially lead training efforts.

      It might also be cool to have some functionality in there that points back to Office help articles, MSDN articles, or maybe general SharePoint Platform news within this site to keep things moving around and draw people to this site.

      • SharePoint Online Updates - Where can we find the list of UI changes.

        SharePoint Online gets upgrades with every new release and Users are caught off-guard. Wouldn't it be nice for Microsoft to send out an email (since they already have emails) about the upcoming releases and the list of major UI changes coming up.

        • Provide 1-2 minute videos about modern office in SharePoint

          The training videos on your Office Training for SharePoint don't reflect the modern lists or libraries that have been released to SharePoint online 8 months ago. This makes it difficult to migrate to SharePoint online and explain to our users what's different between 2013 and SP online.

                  • Differences across 2013-2016 versions, but articles written as if they're the same

                    Please verify options or identified items are actually exactly the same before posting documentation, tech, support articles showing that something is exactly the same across versions.

                    I and users have run into this issue on a number of articles. This causes confusion and frustration, as it makes you expect options or to see configuration settings/have them available, but they're not.

                    For example: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-and-manage-access-requests-94B26E0B-2822-49D4-929A-8455698654B3#bk_enableallow

                    The top of the document shows "Applies To: SharePoint Online, SharePoint Server 2016, SharePoint Foundation 2013, SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Online admin center"

                    But the custom message option identified for "Access Requests Settings"…

                        • The price of Microsoft's decision to eliminate Access Web App can kill our company that is 18 years old in the market.

                          In June 2016 we were hired to develop a solution for a client, for which it would be a great case study that could bring us many financial fruits. After much study we chose to develop the application using Microsoft Access Web App.

                          In February 2017 we finalized the creation of the application and presented to the client, we trained all the staff and…
