  1. Improve the feature to reflect applicable users more quickly after adding as the members of the security group.

    I am aware of the behavior that it takes approximately 24 hours to reflect as an applicable user who was invited to the security group. In details, the admin is restricting browsing for the user by the setting of the Web Part, also the security group was created with MOP.

    I am not sure this above operation affects the behavior or not, but I hope the feature will be implemented to reflect the applicable users in security group more promptly.

  2. Add Networkdays function for calculated columns

    Please add the excel function networkdays to SharePoint calculated columns, this should be a standard feature! And I believe is the biggest problem especially with SharePoint online office 365 which has been locked down from the solutions capability to sandbox event receiver solutions code.

    Many business use SharePoint to host there business data and struggle to do datediff Calc a for workflows and calculated columns, why isn't this standard feature?

  4. The timing for URL's updating

    When I looked into Message Center, I was informed that URLs will be changed during the term between Jan.2017 and Jun.2017 in case the sites had been created within Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) before Office 365 was released. However, I will get some troubles unless the exact time and date for site change are known. I am too anxious because it is currently unclear whether I will be able to receive the notification about when my URLs are supposed to be changed. I'm also afraid that the URLs I check may be changed on screen all of a sudden.…

  5. Wishing to fix the default value with Gantt View.

    I hope users to change the default value of "day", "month", and "year" within the Custom List and Calendar , using Gantt View. I feel inconvenient if users need to change manually "day" into "year" just because of the default setting of "day".

  7. Share invitation popup-window options : don't hide the default options.

    Share invitation popup-window options : don't hide the default options. By default the options are hiden : 1) send an e-mail, 2) permission level is set to members group. By default this should be visible, and default level should be Visitor.

  8. Be aware of the site is not created automatically when I created the Office 365 groups.

    I would like to notify you the behavior which seems like the system error occurred. Specifically, I have confirmed that the site is not created automatically when I created the Office 365 groups using [New-UnifiedGroup] command through Exchange Admin Center or PowerShell.

    According to correct operation, I am required to access the site via OWA for the site creation, therefore, the site should be created automatically regardless of the group creation method.

    I hope the feature will be fixed to make the site is also automatically created at the same time as creating Office 365 group possible.

  9. 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.

  11. 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"…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Provide a way to manage Checked Out Files across a site / site collection

    Currently, if a user uploads a file but fails to complete mandatory fields, the file shows as a checked out file with no checked in version. No other user can see the file so it is like it doesn't exist. We need a report that will check across a site or site collection for such files, and not on a library by library basis.

  15. 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 :) )

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
