  1. Improve the SPFx Dialog Class

    The recently released Dialog class in the SharePoint Framework is a lovely idea but doesn't go nearly as far as it should and is currently very limited in its usefulness. I would like to request the following enhancements:

    1. Allow a parameter for a custom Title; currently they always say only "Alert" and "Prompt" and cannot be changed

    2. Allow specification of the classic alert icons (info, warning, question, error)

    3. Allow specification of a custom icon, preferably from the Office UI Fabric

    4. Allow specification of traditional button sets (ok, ok-cancel, yes-no, etc.) and/or custom button sets using a…

  2. Prompt for Metadata when creating a new file using OOS

    When creating a new file via the Online Application interface optional and required metadata is not presented to the user for entry.
    This results is in files being created and closed without metadata.
    A prompt to enter the meta data when starting the file would be great.
    If we had the ability to automatically lookup data for such fields if for example department was a column this would be great. We could have an option to lookup from the current users profile "Dept" value.
    I would like to be able to manage the logic in the prompt.
    This would be…

  3. Geolocation services on Sharepoint App for mobile devices

    I created a Sharepoint Framework webpart that uses geolocation services from the Navigator type on the browser and works fine on the browsers from desktop PCs, however on the sharepoint app, as it does not request location services permissions, the webpart does not work.

    I would like to suggest that for the APP, it should request location services, in that way we could develop webparts that use this feature and create great webparts that work on mobile devices with location enabled.

  5. Add ability to set the portal url of a site collection using CSOM

    The CSOM API doesn't expose the capability of setting the portal URL of a site collection: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/microsoft.sharepoint.client.site_members(v=office.15).aspx

    This is possible using server-side object model via SPSite.PortalUrl: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.spsite.portalurl(v=office.15).aspx

    Could you implement this functionality in the CSOM API?

  6. Change the Top Navigation tool-tip to show the Site Description

    Change the Top Navigation tool-tip to show the Site's description, rather than just repeating the site name.

  7. 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…

  8. Allow Contact Groups (from Exchange Public Folders) to SharePoint Contacts List

    SharePoint Contacts lists cannot accept contact groups, only individual contacts. This limitation prevents us from effectively migrating our Exchange Public Folder Contacts to SharePoint Online.

  9. Create responsive calendars that work on desktop, tablet, and mobile

    Please update Calendars so that they are responsive and work regardless of the device you are using to view them. Currently they mostly work on desktop and maybe tablets, but mobile doesn't work very well at all.

  10. Eliminate exta space so that users don't need to scroll

    Create these pages to utilize the empty space to the right in order to eliminate the need to scroll. (Seems to have a lot of wasted space as currently set up.)

  11. Drag & drop from outlook email attachment to sharepoint folder

    We do drag & drop to save outlook attachments, but this does not work when we do this with sharepoint folders.

  13. Allow syncing of metadata between SharePoint and Windows Explorer

    We are encouraging the use of SharePoint across our organization, but hit roadblocks on user adoption because you can not view/sort from Windows Explorer the Metadata that you use in SharePoint 2013. Users prefer to connect to the document library using Explorer so there are less click-throughs and there is familiarity in using Explorer. Right now ALL documents show up in Windows Explore with no way of sorting. This has become a significant issue in large projects trying to use SharePoint to maintain documentation, etc. I saw this in an earlier post but it wouldn't let me vote so submitting…

  14. 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.

  15. Column number. Thousand separator should be optional.

    When you use a column number to display a year, there is no need to display a thousand separator.
    Ex: 2,016

  17. I highly suggest showing the options by default for sending an invitation to new users that you give permission to.

    Under site settings or a library settings permissions when adding a new user or group, the option is hidden and checked by default to send an invitation. I suggest showing that by default. It is too easy to send an email to a bunch of users when setting up a new site or app.

  18. If you change the name of the SharePoint group, the Web Part that set the [Target Audiences] is not displayed

    English follows as below

    SharePoint グループの名前を変更すると、[対象ユーザー] を設定した Web パーツが表示されなくなります。
    SharePoint グループの名前を変更しても、そのまま表示されるようにしてください。

    - 再現手順
    1. 全体管理者ユーザーにてサイト コレクションを作成し、カスタム リストを作成します。
    2. SharePoint グループ "Audience 01" を作成し、メンバーとしてユーザー A を追加します。
    3. サイトのトップ ページを編集し、カスタム リストを Web パーツとして設置します。
    4. 該当の Web パーツの [Web パーツの編集] 画面にて、[対象ユーザー] に "Audience 01"、"Company Administrator" を設定します。
    5. ユーザー A にてサイトへアクセスし、Web パーツが表示されることを確認します。
    6. 全体管理者ユーザーにて、[サイトの設定] - [ユーザーとグループ] - [Audience 01] と順にクリックし、[設定] - [グループ設定] から SharePoint グループの名前を "Audience 01_1" に変更します。

    - 期待される結果
    SharePoint グループのメンバーが Web パーツを表示できます。

    - 実際の結果
    SharePoint グループのメンバーが Web パーツを表示できません。

    - 回避策
    1. 全体管理者ユーザーにて、該当の Web パーツの [Web パーツの編集] 画面を開き、[対象ユーザー] 欄に "Audience 01_1" と変更後の SharePoint グループの名前が表示されることを確認します。
    2. 特に設定を変更せず、そのまま保存します。
    3. ユーザー A にてサイトへアクセスし、Web パーツが表示されることを確認します。

  20. Allow registering the external users in bulk via Powershell.

    At the present, the users required to access the site from an invitation mail in order to register an external user by default. However, I feel a little inconvenient if the number of external users to invite is the large amount due to the process of admin's work is increased. Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented to enable using the menu to register external users in the organization's directory in bulk or registering the external users in bulk via Powershell.

    Thank you for your continued support.
