    It looks like the new SharePoint Admin Center preview (as of November 2017) has the beginnings of this functionality. The Idle Session Sign-Out feature allows you to configure timeouts for *unmanaged devices*. We would like it configurable for *managed devices* as well. Currently we have a custom solution with the options:

    No timeout
    5 minutes
    20 minutes
    40 minutes
    60 minutes
    3 hours

    Something like the above would work for our purposes--configurable timeouts that are not just days-long, but minutes- or hours-long.

    We instated this solution because we're a retail environment with lots of shared computers in our stores, and it helps our people safeguard their personal information.

    Thanks!

    Agreed. I was surprised when search suggestions kept suggesting the very thing I typed. I thought this was baked into the search engine as well. Would be a good enhancement.

    Follow-up UI idea: To enable this feature, in the Edit pane for a navigation folder, create a field with these options:
    - Display as simple link (children are shown as they currently are)
    - Display as dropdown
    - Display as accordion pane
    - Display as pop-out menu

    This way the admin could choose independently how he wants each group of links to behave.

    @Mark: Nope, because Managed Metadata requires gutting the Current Navigation and replacing it with term sets. This is often either overkill, or incompatible with the navigational needs of certain websites like ours. My suggestion is a change to the way Current Navigation works in publishing sites, to enable a more robust user experience.

    It's actually not impossible, but it has to be done in IE and everything has to be exactly-perfectly-right, with the same columns from source to destination, and Jupiter in the 11th cusp of the Milky Way. It takes some finagling and IE usually prompts each time to allow the copy/paste (which I believe is a configurable browser setting). Try just highlighting the top-left cell, as well, and pasting from there.

    Additional related request: Make Alert emails and any other type of email configurable at the site level in the fashion mentioned above. A SharePoint HTML editor would be enough to style it. And, make this available to SPOnline users as well as on-premises!

    This request is important for branding as well as minimizing confusion among end users, because often it isn't really clear where a SharePoint-generated email came from or why it was sent.

    Totally agree with PaulE's comment below. It's nearly impossible to sign into another account, and only sometimes works when running IE10 as the user you want to sign in as. Most often, it still auto-signs on as your machine user.

    There are issues with the web login screen when trying to sign on under a different account as well--sometimes it forgets that you even chose "sign in with a different account" and either populates another one in the Username field, or does an auto-sign-on with your domain user.

    This would absolutely be helpful. If done right, it could help get around the limitation of creating a site template out of a publishing site. One trick would be including content as well, but that wouldn't have to be a day-one requirement. And doable on SharePoint Online!
