  2. 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 JSON object


    5. Add a…

  3. disable Office Online.

    I am aware of the statement to describe the current behavior that the check box of Office Online license does not work under the URL of https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sharepoint_support/2015/08/12/office-online/. At the same time, 1 year or more has passed since the blog article was announced, so I hope that I will be able to disable the Office Online within Online app.

  5. Make it possible to properly make posts after changing the content type in the discussion board

    Changing the content type according to the process below, newly added discussions arent being displayed in the "Latest" view and can only be accessed via the "My Discussion" view.
    This is very troublesome, as one can
    t return to the original order after changing it once.
    Its possible to add items via the ribbon menu, but to fully solve this kind of situation, theres only one option and that`s to rebuild the discussion board from scratch. Please improve this behavior.

    The current process

    1) Access the corresponding discussion board
    2) Click on "List Settings" in the "List"…

  6. 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…

  7. editing files with local Office apps

    When using the default SharePoint setting where files are opened in browser - when the user chooses to edit with local installed Office application -
    .
    Once the file has opened in Word, Excel, Etc., it would be nice if the browser window would close.
    .
    It is counter productive to have a popup come on screen that says "all done you can close the tab now". You are literally adding steps in the workflow to have this lingering window which needs manual input for it to go away.
    .
    please at least give an option in Site Settings that…

  8. Allow Download in Image Gallery

    It would be great if you could implement a button for downloading the previewed images in the modern image gallery webpart. Several customers are using this webpart today and want to enable their employees to download single images (download all as zip would be also pretty cool :) )

  9. 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.

  10. Improve the function of controlling the setting for notification options bulkly by the admin.

    For our operations, the notification mail is sent to the users when some changes are made in each App on the site. However, I am a little dissatisfied with the system of notification options to take a time to set by default. I hope the feature will be implemented to be controlling the setting of notification options in a batch by the admin in the future.

  12. Implement the behavior for OneNote Online.

    I am aware of that when dragging and dropping to move the section, the function does not work at all on OneNote Online. Also, when I synchronize the files with the other clients, the same event has been occurred, then where the order of sections is switched in the files. I cannot find any workaround except the situations allowed me to sign up on the client's account. I assume there is no solutions so far even I tried a troubleshooting to figure out.
    I really hope this behavior will be fixed fundamentally and Improved usabilities for OneNote Online.

  14. improve the behavior of Outlook screen's [notebook] link.

    In case I modify the OneNote's name generated in Office365 groups's site collection by default, I am unable to confirm the [Notebook]'s link within the lest menu at the time of showing the Office365 group on Outlook screen as the notebook that should be. I was advised by the support desk that once OneNote' name has been changed into another one, the [Link to] of the [Notebook]'s link on the site collection screen should should be auto-converted, Outlook's [Notebook] is unchangeable. I have confirmed this behavior recovered along with revert to OneNote name, but at the same time I would…

  15. improve the behavior regarding the screen frozen when clicking [Share with] at the list with a displayed dialog.

    I am aware of the behavior that the screen is frozen when clicking the [Share with] once viewed on the upper after showing the item at the list with a displayed dialog. When I asked a support desk about this behavior, I was advised by them that it could be a current behavior.

    I understand that this type of incident would not occur if I could have the option of item display. However, we apply the dialog display to our business operation, and there I request you improve immediately this freezing behavior.

  19. Allow the admin to operate the privilege settings for the folders at one time in ShaPoint Online.

    Now I am switching the software to SharePoint Online from the groupware and then I need to operate the privilege settings simultaneously for the multiple folders at an initial stage.

  20. implement the feature the emails as ”In Organization”.

    When I completed the setting of receiving the mail only from the "In Organization"s user within delivery management setting, I find the behavior not allowing me to receive the notification e-mail form SharePoint site. As a recipient, I wish to receive the mail via SharePoint along with the setting once completed by the "In Organization"'s user, and I hope the additional feature to be available that recognize the [no-reply@sharepointonline.com] from email address as "In Organization".
