  1. to fix Managed Navigation and Library Column Filter "bug"

    When using managed navigation it's not possible to use the column filters.

    See: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/ab5c7d15-14e7-470a-8120-71d049a104d3/list-metadata-navigation-and-columns-filters-not-working?forum=sharepointgeneral

    The "workaround" to use server rendering in the webpart properties isn't really satisfying, cause you lose features like list search and multi-value filtering for choice fields.

    • Overlay icalendar feed on SharePoint calendar

      It would greatly enhance the calendar capability if you could overlay an icalendar feed rather than just an Exchange calendar as you can currently.

      My specific scenario is that it would allow me to overlay an IBM Notes calendar. Could also be used for Google calendar and many other systems that support the icalendar format.

      • 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.

            So, Could you please develop and introduce the system that enables a prompt and active notification as RSS feature performs that kinds of behavior?

            • Hide system folders in Explorer view

              Could you please just hide system folders when an user open Explorer View because it's confusing for end users to use this feature when several unused folder appear with user document libraries.

              • Upload email attachments via sharepoint

                It is far too complicated and time consuming to attach a file to an email from sharepoint. Recommend the ability to access sharepoint online directly from outlook's "attach file" option.

                • My Sites - All SharePoint sites I have access

                  As a SharePoint user I need to know all the sites to which I have access in order to easily navigate to required site. A simple link to a page that can display all these sites based on my access rights (sorted) would be really useful.

                    • Allow attachments from Outlook to be stored in a specific folder on OneDrive

                      Allow attachments from Outlook to be stored in a specific folder on OneDrive. Currently, all attachments go to the "Email Attachments" folder in OneDrive so we then have to do an extra step and move the file(s) again. This was a nice feature in Google Docs that I am sure will be missed my many moving from Google to MS 365

                      • STOP opening Sharepoint files in READ ONLY

                        Ive heard that this was put in as a "feature" to prevent users opening a file at the same time. That will happen so rarely compared to users opening documents that others are NOT working on. All this does is add aggravation and time to our day.

                              • With the new look library, new item automatically checked in despite mandatory metadata not filled out

                                When you drag a new item into a new look library, even if the content type has mandatory metadata, the new item is automatically checked in. This is broken behaviour that needs to be fixed as what is the point of mandatory metadata otherwise? Until this issue is resolved, the new look library is essentially unusable for our company.

                                  • Metadata fields to be available when composing doc online

                                    When composing a new document (e.g. Word, Excel) "online", it doesn't seem to ask for any required metadata, but only when you are creating a doc "in the client", you are asked to provide metadata info. This way, if you have the content organiser feature switched on for your library, composing a new document online makes the whole content organising process redundant. It would be great if the user was still asked to provide metadata info even when they are creating a document ONLINE, not just in the local client. Thanks

                                      • New list using custom list template via CSOM and PowerShell

                                        The current SPO CSOM api does not allow for creation of lists using valid custom list templates.

                                        We can load the list templates and access them via PowerShell using CSOM, but cannot create new lists using them.

                                        Creation of lists using the custom list templates via the SP UI works fine, but is very time consuming if trying to created automated deployment of lists and list content.

                                        Otherwise, you have to brute force a new list, add the content type, make lists edits, and add content using separate scripts.

                                          I would like to link a Office 365 groups one drive storage into a Team Site. So that I from a Team Site can browse/manage a Office365 groups OneDrive for business storage.
