  3. Include URL field on new library creation page

    To avoid spaces and %20 in URLs, provide a mechanism on new list/library forms, new column forms, new view forms, and similar where the user has some kind of control over the URL (or in the case of columns the internal name). A simple URL field would do the trick quite nicely, ideally with some kind of auto population feature copying the value from the name field so the user doesn't have to type something in twice.

  5. if new file added without additional properties force user to update properties before its added to the document library

    Programs such as OneNote don't give functionality of Document Information Panel so no user can add properties before they add the document into the document library.

  6. Rejecting an approved document will hide it from the visitor users even if there is a previous approved version for the document

    I am facing a critical problem inside my SharePoint document library. here is the scenario:-

    - I have a team site collection inside SharePoint 2013.
    
    - i add a document library inside the Team site.
    - I define the following version setting inside the document library; where users will only be able to see approved documents (in other word they will see the latest approved version)

    - now when a user upload a new document its status will be pending.
    - other users will not see this document since it does not have any approved versions.
    - when approver user…

  7. show the document set settings more prominent

    the most important on document sets management is the settings page. Show it more prominent on the content type page so people can find it faster

  8. Offline Scenarios

    For document management using SharePoint document libraries we’re encouraging using metadata instead of folders.
    When working only with the browser client this works fine and we can create views based on that metadata.
    Now, when using tools like OneDrive for Business to sync those files to devices some of the metadata will be available in the Office documents but not in the file system.
    We cannot create the same views we have in the SharePoint document library on the file system of the device.
    So we’re really not providing a “full-circle” support for such document management scenarios where we can…

  9. Create a hover panel for Visio documents.

    Other office documents can be peeked into in the Search results. But visio documents do not. We have lots of visio documents in our IT department, it would be nice to peek in like Word and Excel.

  10. Enable in-domain email addresses for Alerts

    Alerts on lists, libraries, pages, etc. can only be sent to Active Directory users recognized by SharePoint. Add an option to at least let emails within a specific domain (@mycompany.com) receive alerts. Or, allow a setting for any email address to get them if the tenant administrators deem it OK.

    Right now we have email distribution lists whose membership can change, and we don't want to have to emulate those lists inside SharePoint groups just to be able to send alerts. Adding this functionality would solve that problem.

  11. Recreate all the graphics for retina-class displays. Right now everything looks fuzzy on hi-dpi displays.

    The SharePoint UI currently looks quite fuzzy on retina-class Hi-DPI displays. It would be nice for the icons to be recreated to support newer PCs with these screens.

  12. SP Online - Hide MM in Document Information Panel

    Currently if I mark a managed metadata column as hidden, the field still shows up in the document information panel. Would like to hide it without creating a custom form.

  13. Link "Recycle bin" in current navigation

    In SP Online there is a link "Recycle bin" in current Navigation for team sites. This link should come to SP 2016 for team sites and also for publishing pages.

  14. Deploy and store calculated fields using internal names

    When deploying a calculated field, the formula must contain display names. It becomes problematic to use such a field if the display name of a field in a list has become different from the one in the Site Columns gallery (user rename, different language, column rename in certain lists, etc.). Besides this being more logical, the current way it works makes it impossible to deploy a calculated field for some field/list combinations. Example: the Title Field in a SP 2013 Task List has display name "Task Name", but the Title field in the Site Columns gallery has Display Name "Title".

  15. Enable application of storage quotas via CAM Provisioning API.

    In the current site collection provisioning API (Tenant Admin API subset), it is not possible to specify quota template to be applied to the site collection. Equivalent exists in server side API. This currently leads to a lot of high-maintenance/process workarounds via Powershell and/or additional pre/post provisioning scripting and/or Central Admin actions for farms that use fine grained storage quota models.

  16. Support List/Library creation using a custom template

    I need to create a List/Library using a custom template.

    This was supported in Server OM, but you can't do it programmatically in SPOnline. If you try to do using SP UI, it works as expected. So, If it is supported by the UI, it should be supported by the API.

    Thanks.

  18. Allow multiple email to receive the access request.

    When setting up Access request in a site collection, there is only one email address allowed. In 2010 we could add a semi-colon separated list of email.
    it is all explained at https://jmitnotes.wordpress.com/2015/06/05/sharepoint-2013-access-request-email-must-be-unique/

  19. Improved document template grouping for the new button in Doc libraries

    As it stands if you have more than a few document content types the new button templates becomes out of hand rather fast.

    Allow some form of grouping so the functionality can migrate from WORD and transferred into the content types. For example:

    Group names

    Corporate
    Legal
    IT
    HR

    This could simply to follow the content type folder name.
