  1. Put back the option when creating a new List to set it NOT to appear on the Quick Launch by default.

    Used to be able to uncheck the option to have a new list appear on the left navigation. That's now been removed, but it was very handy to have it on List creation.

      • Enable selecting custom User Profile Properties from REST API

        I've created an UserProfile with some custom properties.
        When using http://siteurl/_api/SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager/GetMyProperties, I get a resultset with all UserProfile properties, including my custom properties.

        When I try to select one (or more) of my custom properties by http://siteurl/_api/SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager/GetMyProperties?$select=CustomProperty, I do not get the custom property returned.

        Selecting on the default properties that SharePoint provides does work.

        Right now I am using a workaround which iterates through the (big) resultset with all properties to get my custom property values, but it would be great if I could select just my customer properties.

        • Extend CSOM/REST for modifying item-level permission settings on lists

          If possible, please provide a REST endpoint or CSOM API extension for modifying the item-level permission settings which can be found under the advanced list settings. More specific, this means being able to modify the "Read access" and "Create and edit access" settings.

          • Add true integration with Yammer

            The yammer integration is anything but simple and it is not a true integration. It would be nice to be able to post files directly to SharePoint from a yammer group rather than in Yammer. Also it would be nice to finally just have one social framework to deal with...whether it is Yammer or the SP 2013 Newsfeeds. I feel Yammer is much cleaner and easy to use. SharePoint should just be updated to use Yammer as an "app" in SharePoint with full integration...none of this web part stuff. And if I am in Yammer, just allow me to use…

              • Downloading past versions

                Hi, I think it should be possible to download from the Version History list without overwriting the current version in SharePoint.

                • Call SharePoint 2013 with Start Workflow Action

                  Currently, you can only call SharePoint 2010 workflows with the Start Workflow action. Can it please be updated so that SharePoint 2013 workflows can also be called?

                  • offline availability

                    Can we have the offline availability feature improved please. The feature currently only stops users from syncing libraries, but does not stop them from downloading a copy. I want to see this feature to also prohibit users from downloading library content as a copy to local storage

                    • Migrate an existing site feed / microfeed list to a new teamsite

                      We have sites based on an old custom template. We are moving all contents to a new / default STS teamsite.
                      The only copy which is not working is the microfeed list.
                      3rd party tools can also not migrate this list.

                      • 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

                        • Hide Blog Tools from general users

                          If you have a blog site the blog tools have to be present on the page to allow comments to be posted back. This means that if you want to hide the 'Manage Posts' links from users that aren't blog admins you can't because if you do the link to post a comment is disabled.

                          I'd like the ability to set the blog tools webpart to be visible only to a target audience but still allow users outside this audience to be able to post comments.

                          • Duplicate DocumentIDs created when converting .VSD to .VSDX

                            When you download an older Visio (.VSD) file from a SharePoint library, convert this file to the latest Visio format (.VSDX) and upload the newly converted file to the same library the .VSDX file retains the same Document ID as the .VSD file, creating Duplicate IDs. Note that the “ID” field is different (ie. correct).

                            To recreate the problem:
                            1. create a "vsd" file in visio
                            2. upload to Sharepoint library and check in
                            3. download a copy of this file by clicking on link
                            4. save as "vsdx" file (eg. on PC hard drive)
                            5. upload to same Sharepoint…

                            • Saving outlook attachments directly to Sharepoint

                              With the volume of attachments that are received via email, and ensuring that the documents within those attachments are saved appropriately for probity, governance, access reasons, please provide the facility to be able to save directly into Sharepoint from outlook.

                              The 'old' and 'traditional' method of saving directly into windows explorer 'server' file locations is perfect and needs to be replicated in O365.

                              • 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.
