  1. Need a back, forward and refresh button for the document library web part.

    Right now you have to click the document library and change views to go back after you've entered a subfolder. There should be a back, forward and refresh button within the webpart so that the user can go back or forward or refresh contents without having to go to another page.

  2. Allow a document library custom view to start within a subfolder rather than just being able to hide other folders in the root folder view

    Right now you can only change the view of a document library by hiding other folders/subfolders from the root document library folder view.
    Instead you should be able to choose to start in the root folder and hide folders/subfolders as you already can AND you should also be able to pick any given folder/subfolder and have the view start within that folder/subfolder.
    The very idea of using less document libraries means that admins want to be able to create folders/subfolders for given pages and start within that folder/subfolder on its corresponding page so users can be focused from the very…

  3. Save library as template with default column values from metadata/term store

    If you save a document library as a template, and the library contains default column values from metadata... 1) The defaults will not work in libraries created from the template. 2) You will get an error if you try to change the defaults. The workaround is to save the template without default values and manually set in libraries created from the template.

  8. Allow PDFs in a Document Library to open in Acrobat Reader DC with "Checkout and Open" dialog

    Currently, if you select a PDF from search results, it opens in Acrobat Reader DC with a dialog allowing you to Check Out and edit the PDF. Then after you make changes and save the PDF, it saves right back to the SharePoint library. However, if the same document is opened directly from the SharePoint library, it is downloaded and no longer linked to its location in the library. The option should exist for the first workflow to override the second.

  10. Improve Attachment feature on list item

    This would be very effective to improve the management of attachment to a list item because you lose document management functionalities to attach simply a document to a list item.
    To be able to manage metadata for attachment will be a good idea to begin when you edit a item list.
    When I add an attachment , I want to see each version to be able to remember what I or my team (or a customer) has done before my changes.

  11. List Item Scheduling

    Till date SP supports Item Scheduling for Document Libraries only. This feature is not available in Lists, where it would turn very handy specifically in case of Cross Site Publishing where we have the complete content based on lists that requires scheduling of list items which have content types that include start and end dates. We did custom implement this with the help of custom columns and custom timer job for an enterprise customer who runs a public site based on cross site publishing.

  12. Onedriver with mount as drive and not synced

    The OneDrive app should had a possibilitet to change mode from syncronizing your folder, or to connect as network drive. If you change mode then it removes the syncing, and visa versa. Or also have a hybird compination.

  13. Move documents across site collection with version history and metadata

    The sharepoint online provides MOVECOPYUTIL to move documents/folders within a site collection while retaining the version history, all the metadata associated with the document and also retains the moderation status.
    This movecopyutil class methods however do not support moving or copying of documents across site collection (while retaining the version history, metadata and moderation status).
    Can the movecopyutil methods be enhanced or any new API's be exposed which can be leveraged to perform the action of moving documents across site collections.

  15. Give SPO same capabilities as SP on prem for Recycle bin Retention

    Currently SPO has a default setting in Recycle bin to remove items after 93 days. SP on prem allows admin's to configure this according to business needs. There needs to be an option to configure SPO Recycle Bin retention policy to meet business needs. In the case I'm working with, the business needs are 30 days.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
