    • Allow owa file attachment direct from your sharepoint sites

      Currently when using OWA (365 online outlook) if you click the attach button to add a file to an email your composing, you can only add files from your local PC, Group files or your OneDrive folder, there is no option to attach a file directly from a team site library. (Bizarre when you consider the data is in the same place as your OneDrive files?)
      We as a business store many of our files for use in a range of different libraries and currently have to attach them through the 'Computer' link and searching through an open file explorer…

      • Fix "by design" bug where metadata columns get locked when saving to SharePoint libraries from Office applications

        There is currently a bug when saving documents between libraries, with differing content types. Upon attempting to save the document, one or more of the metadata fields becomes greyed out and unselectable. This is particularly frustrating when it occurs to a required column as the only workaround is to save a copy locally then manually import into SharePoint afterwards.

        The same issue is intermittent when saving brand new documents into SharePoint libraries, however, has not been consistently captured like the other example above.

        Multiple tickets have been lodged with Microsoft Support with no real progress made so far. The only…

        • Enable copy of breadcrumb text in new Document Libraries look

          In "classic" SharePoint, I could copy the text of breadcrumb trails in the Document Libraries, but can no longer do this in the new look. It is critical that users are able to select and copy the breadcrumb text in the new version of Document Libraries.

          • Move documents between sites and between libraries

            Pls, create a easier way to move a document from one library to another and from one site (or subsite) to another site.
            Ex: Move from Onedrive library to a Site Library.

              • The 'new look' document libraries (they now look like OneDrive) to inherit the themes from the site level

                I would like to see the new look document libraries, which now resemble the OneDrive look and feel, to inherit the colour scheme and other theme settings from their site level.

                • Make "Sites" in Office Save As show all available SharePoint sites

                  When saving as in Office desktop apps (Excel etc.) you can link to a SharePoint team site. However, if you are a member of multiple sites there is no user-friendly way to navigate all of these sites through this link. For SharePoint installations with multiple sites this is clunky, you have to find the URL of the site you want and insert it in the address bar.

                  The functionality should be that when you click Save As -> "Sites - [company name]" it should show you a list of all available sites, then you can navigate to the sub-site/library of…

                    • Nabigation in Document Libraries

                      Please, give to new look some indicator where user is on site. Structure of SharePoint can be deeply nested. And URL structrure and navigation like with classic OneDrive will be fine.

                          Cant the Ribbon in Document Library be enabled?

                          Please add the ribbon back as it was very easy to use. Now its like very confusing to identify which is where and how the changes be done. because everytime we have to go to library settings and do the setting changes.

                            • Numeric non decimal column returns decimal value

                              When you create a custom numeric column with a setting of 0 decimals in a list, the SharePoint interface lets you to introduce decimal values and it rounds the number after saving. So if you type 1.5 it will be rounded up to 2.

                              From my point of view, it shouldn't allow to enter decimal values like 1.5, but this is not the "real" problem.

                              The real problem is that when you retrieve that column value, you will retrieve a 1.5 instead of the 2, which is the value you are seeing in the list using the interface.

                              This means…

                              • Ribbon and task-based features

                                Keep that Ribbon bar (Files, Library), and move the Folders/View to the right of those, put the Global Search there, and most other changes in that same row. All my clients know to go to the Ribbon for the non-basic features, and my current client was complaining to me without the Ribbon..
                                - Some redundancy with features on the “new task-based” ribbon is fine. Fewer clicks and more obvious action buttons are more important than cleanliness.
                                - Like Office and Windows toolbars, add an option to Show text for icons, or customize it.
                                - The Folders/View dropdown wont get used…

                                    We should have the ability to copy the URL of a document. That ability was lost with the recent upgrade.

                                    The various "get link" functions are all about passing tokens & changing access. But if I'm sharing a document with an existing user of the SP site, I just want to share the link.

                                    • Unifiy Yammer and Sharepoint Groups and Tags for 1 version of the truth...

                                      It confuses users to have 2 sets of Groups and Tags across O365 platform.

                                      • The ability to edit publisher files kept in SharePoint Online

                                        Per ticket SRX616081693933729ID I am unable to edit Publisher documents stored in SharePoint Online.

                                        This was an available feature in SharePoint On-Prem. We would like this added back into SharePoint Online. The pain of having to download the Publisher file, save it local, make your changes and then upload it is crazy.

                                        • Stop constant authentication prompts with mapped drives

                                          When we map a document library with SharePoint, we need an active security token which expires after 7-8 hours. This means we need to reauthenticate EVERY DAY we want to access a mapped drive - OK for technically-savvy users, not so much for everyone else!
