  1. 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.

  2. Allow reordering of Welcome Page Columns on Document Set settings

    Whenever we add or change a column on a Content Type which inherits from Document Set, we have to manually adjust the Site Columns we want to display on the welcome page. If we want to add a column near the top of the welcome page, that means removing everything else, adding the new column, then adding all the previous columns back. This is tedious as we iterate through the information architecture.

    Ideally we should be able to drag and drop columns into the right order whenever we need to make adjustments. (The configuration UI could be improved by adding…

  3. Metadata driven interactive list and libraries.

    Metadata driven interactive list and libraries. Search boxes in fields (colums) which are metadata driven to makeup list or library. All the list and library contents (fields, columns) are stored in metadata, and capable of search to make up a list or library. Wallah, you have custome list and library every single time, and it would be great if you could save as template also. I have many more ideas.

  6. Prompt for Metadata when creating a new file using OOS

    When creating a new file via the Online Application interface optional and required metadata is not presented to the user for entry.
    This results is in files being created and closed without metadata.
    A prompt to enter the meta data when starting the file would be great.
    If we had the ability to automatically lookup data for such fields if for example department was a column this would be great. We could have an option to lookup from the current users profile "Dept" value.
    I would like to be able to manage the logic in the prompt.
    This would be…

  8. People with "Limited access" to a site can see the existence of Document Libraries that they don't have access to

    If a site has people with limited access to items on the site, users with such limited access can see a document library in the Site Content page, even if they do not have access to the document library. They can see that the document library has X numbers of documents, but when they enter the document library, the library appears empty. They do not have access to the documents inside the document library.

    I first assumed that this was a bug and reported it to Microsoft premier support, but according to Microsoft this is by design(?!)

    A document library…

  10. Download Multiple Files/Folders

    Create a multiple file/folder download button. Open with file explorer is not intuitive and doesn't work for all browsers and non-Windows computers.

  12. Multiple Check In's

  15. Copy to another library - conditional and/or unconditional

    Please add the functionality that you can copy a document, to an other library.
    It can replace the sent to option.
    It should be able to allow conditions that should b met before you send the document, i.e only approved documents can be sent or all documents.
    These conditions should be set at library level

  17. More Customization for Document Share "Invite People" Email Experience

    3 suggestions to make the sharing experience more robust for our use.

    Ability to customize the subject line (currently shows as XXX has shared….)

    Ability to decide or not to “copy me” (currently always sends a copy to me – feels redundant because we just sent it)

    Ability to dissociate recipients TO / CC (currently TO for all recipients)

  18. Show Toolbar regardless of Style

    The Toolbar should be shown by default for all lists and libraries, regardless of the style chosen (boxed, newsletter, shaded, preview, etc.).

    The 'missing' toolbar or only having the toolbar display on the "default" view is a huge pain, given the default view isn't the most user-friendly option (speaking on this topic - would be nice to give the styles a revamp as well).

  19. Parent site template which can push changes down to previously created sub-sites (similar to list/library parent content types)

    Many customers use a site template to create project/program sites in their environment. Generally speaking the lists and libraries that are in the site template are composed of content types so that changes can be made in one place and easily pushed out to all locations using that content type. The one area where SP is lacking is in the ability to easily push out changes at the site level to all the sub-sites where a certain site template has been used (e.g. change the navigation, add a new list, create a new page with a few web-parts, etc.... then…
