  1. folder colour

    Keep the folder colour as yellow because the new dark blue is too similar to the word documents within the folder. The distinctive yellow colour is needed a as a contrast.

  2. Allow ?IsDlg=1 to work with the new document library style

    The new SharePoint document libraries need to respect the ?IsDlg=1 URL parameter to hide the ribbon and nav elements. Being able to embed the contents of the document library into a modal dialog is paramount to our content management system.

  3. Up until recently the document properties window always popped up when uploading a new document, now it doenst.

    Up until recently the document properties window always popped up when uploading a new document. Now a recent update took that away, and the only way the document properties window shows up when uploading a file is if at least one field is required. This has caused lots of confusion for people. Because if you require a field, and someone then uses drag and drop, that file is checked out and no one can see it. This is fine for experienced SharePoint users, but for people new to this product it is a HUGE pain.

  4. calendar and mailbox integration

    Add more functionality to mailboxes that are added to SharePoint sites.

    It would like to be able to send meeting invites to a site calendar for significant events, team member availability, etc. I think it would be a big improvement to manage these events with email than to have all team members updating their own information. This would help efficiency in that each team member will only have to add a new recipient to achieve the organization, they will already be creating these events in their own calendar. Without being able to send events to the SharePoint calendar, any team…

  5. Produce a sync tool that works with SharePoint Online. OneDrive for Business does not work.

    Produce a sync tool that works with SharePoint Online. We have tried for months to use the OneDrive for Business tool. It errors out so regularly it consumes 89% of our helpdesk time to fix. Then it just errors again. On and on. What is the plan and when will it be ready? We are planning to shut off sync on all sites and revert back to DropBox Business.

  6. Allow syncing of metadata between SharePoint and Windows Explorer

    We are encouraging the use of SharePoint across our organization, but hit roadblocks on user adoption because you can not view/sort from Windows Explorer the Metadata that you use in SharePoint 2013. Users prefer to connect to the document library using Explorer so there are less click-throughs and there is familiarity in using Explorer. Right now ALL documents show up in Windows Explore with no way of sorting. This has become a significant issue in large projects trying to use SharePoint to maintain documentation, etc. I saw this in an earlier post but it wouldn't let me vote so submitting…

  7. Bring back the ability to view an aggregate of all tasks assigned across multiple sites

    One of the main reasons our company went with SharePoint in the first place was to view and manage tasks for multiple projects in one place. Since taking the "My Tasks" pages away, our users no longer have the ability to see all tasks assigned to them across multiple sites. This makes SharePoint almost useless to us. Especially since they can't even sync their tasks with Outlook. We've seen our SharePoint adoption plummet as users are looking to other tools to manage tasks. Bring back "My Tasks" or provide another solution!

  8. Be able to rename your sharepoint sites after domain has been migrated out of office tenant.

    Option is available on-prem installations but not Online. I understand there is much work to do but an announcement that Microsoft is working on this would be appreciated.

  10. Allow PDFs in a Document Library to open in Acrobat Reader DC with "Checkout and Open" dialog

    Currently, if you select a PDF from search results, it opens in Acrobat Reader DC with a dialog allowing you to Check Out and edit the PDF. Then after you make changes and save the PDF, it saves right back to the SharePoint library. However, if the same document is opened directly from the SharePoint library, it is downloaded and no longer linked to its location in the library. The option should exist for the first workflow to override the second.

  11. 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…

  14. Easily disable "Open with explorer" on a library by library basis

    Open with explorer is great, but only if you have a pretty simple library structure.
    I've found it causes a lot of grief when used with features such as content organizer and document sets. Need to be able to disable this on a per library basis.

  16. "Add an app" user experience to improve

    When you want to add an app like a task list or a promoted links list, you click the menu on top right of the page and select "Add an application", you choose the app template and then enter the name of it.

    Today, you're automatically redirected to the "All site content" page. The intent of the user is not to go to that page, what he wants is to go directly into his new app to start to configure it.

    Please avoid diplaying the "Site content" page, because you need to search again for your app, and the fact…

  17. Connect Cross Site Publishing for Catalog

    We have configured Cross Site Publishing for Catalog but we got error, so we opened support ticket# 116110714900323 and team recommended to update in this blog as we have not followed prerequisite, but as a end user we can not configure all at single shot.

    So now the issue is when we connect to catalog we get as "Value cannot be null. Parameter name:g", this unable to resolve and now support telling that we have to configure it correctly as indicated here https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Connect-and-disconnect-a-publishing-site-to-a-catalog-in-SharePoint-df2bdea4-ceb0-459a-91d2-a47a1d807d71?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US which we were not aware.
    Now MS support updated that they could reproduce the issue from there…

  18. User Custom Actions with Custom JavaScript CommandAction

    There are solutions and Add-ins that provide User Custom Actions with CommandUI.Ribbon that invoke some custom JavaScript code for example CommandAction="javascript:alert('My custom Action');".

    Would be really nice if you show these in the toolbar again.

    I understand that some CommandActions has sp.js references which is not available in "modern" libraries, but we managed to load them on-demand.

    Please show these in the toolbar or provide some properties for "modern-libraries targeting" custom actions that are meant to work in the "modern" experience.
