  1. Provide an option to sync shared folders to hard drive

    Clicking to "OneDrive for Business" and then to "Shared with Everyone" is cumbersome and unintuitive, especially for users coming from Google Drive and Dropbox.

    Please make it so that I can add shared folders to my "OneDrive for Business" folder itself. It breaks flow to separate my files from shared files like that, with no way of combining them. (In GDrive, this option is called "Add to My Drive": https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375057?hl=en) Thank you!

    • Locking of list items

      Currently there is no way to exclusive work on a list-item. In document libraries the checkin/checkout feature can be used to prevent mulitple users from update a certain item.

      When I'm update listitems in code, I have to make sure, that no-one else is currently updating the item while I change some data.

      Potentially someone could update the item while I'm also update the item. Whoever save the item last will receive an error. This could be prevented with some kind of locking of list-items.

      • 5000 item CAML Query Limit

        By default, if you do perform a CAML query and there are more than 5000 items in the list (although the results are far less), it throws an exception. Please fix this.

            • File Explorer Option

              Make it possible to use file explorer versus the list that appears. Dropping files takes to much time. I have to use my desktop now as a stopping place where I never did that with my actual server.

              • Enable css (branding) and ux components (like global nav) to be globally deployed in the tenant.

                Enable css (branding) and ux components (like global nav) to be globally deployed in the tenant. It could be a setting in the administration that could enables this option to allow custom js or Css to be injected across over office 365. With custom actions or alternate css or whatever to make a unified experience for customers which are in a great need of having their identity in their digital workplace.

                      • Fix breadcrumb Navigation in Central Administration

                        The breadcrumb navigation is broken in several places in central administration and it has been for years. It makes it a hassle administering some service applications / functions.

                        When navigating to the user profile service application there is no way to go "back" to the start page of the UPS. I find myself very often having to go back to the service applications overview and start the user profile service application via the regular link again. The search service application always has the menu on the left side, making it easy to switch between e.g. search schema and content sources…

                          Please fix infinite scroll. As the items load, the scroll bar will repeatedly pop back to the top of the list, making items lower on the page difficult to access.

                          • Library commands from classic Sharepoint

                            Can't seem to find the "open in explorer", library settings and edit View options in the new SharePoint library experience. Appears that the new Library options are very limited/restricted. Please bring back the Ribbon with all the commands to the new SharePoint library experience... :(

                                  I hate the new look for my personal page on SharePoint. I would like it to be consistent with other features of SharePoint, e.g. like promoted links. I would like to set my page to be the classic look before what it changed today.

                                  • Document Preview and document links please roll back the changes!!!!!!

                                    Can we please have the Document Preview back when the ellipses are clicked? It was so easy and the document link was right there.

                                    Now we have to select the document and then hit the information button which gives us not so useful information. Then if you want to copy and send the link to someone you need to click "Get Link" and select which type of link. Not a fan of the new UI. I don't see a win for anyone with the new UI.

                                          Please add a document preview or "instant access" so i dont have to either download or open each document in a new tab to check it's contents.
