  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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

    Dear,
    I am Carlos Moreira owner of the chmcorpp company in Brazil. Chmcorpp is a strategic management and market intelligence consulting firm, was founded in 2001 to meet the government agencies, private and public company needs.

    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…

  10. 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"…

  16. I really have the idea by now that one million people, or one million times, have approached me in public to try to pretend not to be talkin

    I know this is supposed to be computer questions. But how many times are they going to try to decide and classify me as psychiatric to reassure themselves about WHY I'm here; WHY I'm not working; WHY I'm single; WHY I don't have kids, WHY I go around screaming at everybody all the time by now; WHY that creep is outside my doors all the time; WHY I "use VOdka," but they never seem to wonder why they wonder these things...about me. They do; I'll have to learn to ignore their insipid insane treatment and pass it off as...childish curiosity.

  18. What about the idea that "all," medical (including psychiatric; cancer tests; etc.) are involuntary??

    02/19/2019 - Finally, after years and years of voluntary/involuntary treatment; tests; therapy; etc., it seems that millions or hundreds of members of the medical community (let alone the legal community or the religious community) have followed me around since day one. Everybody kept turning up everywhere I went. This included McDonald's and Jewel Food Stores, as well as a litany of false diagnoses on myself (already disproven clinically) and their intense, burning desire to overzealously practice their profession, craft, or crime on me, any time, any place. It came to the point where any person with cop training let me…

  20. Joined Sites to Groups Exiration Policy or Not ?

    In the documentation https://support.office.com/en-us/article/connect-a-classic-experience-sharepoint-team-site-to-a-new-office-365-group-469c6ee0-2139-4496-9914-7e39d07ac49d

    you talk about setting the policy, also the documentation on users going through the process of joining an existing SP site to an O365 Group.

    In both sets of documentation there is nothing that discusses whether or not that newly enlisted site is now part of the Groups Expiration Policy.

    Obviously for a Joined SP site collection we do not want this policy, or perhaps some do, but its optional.

    In any case where is the documentation on what actually happens here ? We cant tell, and dont want to wait a year to find out…
