  1. Fix SharePoint 2013 Workflows that don't run on lists with unique permissions

    If a user has Read access at the site-level and Contribute or above access at the list-level, for a list with unique permissions, then they still cannot initiate SharePoint 2013 workflows. The workflow will stall with a permission error.
    The problem is that the user also needs at least Contribute permissions to the relevant Workflow History and Workflow Task lists. These two lists typically inherit permissions from the site.
    However, to allow users to run SP 2013 Workflows on a list with unique permissions, you must also create unique permissions on the workflow history and tasks lists, and make sure…

  4. Outlook on the web (Progressive Web App) offline feature

    Progressive Web App for Outlook on the Web is out. Really liked it so far. I was surprised that offline feature is not available for new App.
    Is it on the roadmap? Any ETA? This feature will make a large O365 community very happy, I can tell.

  5. Enhance Conditions in Content Searchi n the Security and Compliance Center

    Provide additional more granular Conditions to Content Search and eDiscovery in the Security and Compliance Center. Quite often, we need to retrieve emails, for example, that are specifically between two people – i.e. they are the only people to in the From: and To: fields. Currently, searches will return all emails where the people are mentioned anywhere in From:, To:, CC:, and Bcc: fields. This then needs further (usually tortuous) manual searching in the exported PST files.

  11. Onedrive, Sharpoint: Preview option in documents version history

    It would be helpful in Onedrive and Sharepoint to have in the version history of a document the "Preview" option.
    Nowadays only appears the "Open document" option. We have to open the document to see if is it the version document that we are looking for.

  15. Feedback portal

    After over 20 minutes to disable focus/other on my email -- a control freak idea that I didn't get a choice about as it just showed up one day without my knowledge or consent (#metoo for software) I had to talk to a supervisor at the call center who tried to CONVINCE me that I had asked for this feature. NO WAY NEVER NUH UH! The whole experience underlines the bottom line poor socialization of men in tech worldwide. Poor social skills are no excuse. Social skills are learned. Just like coding. SO LEARN SOME PROPER SOCIAL SKILLS AND QUIT…

  16. Office 2016 and 2019 should have black theme.

    Office 2016 doesn't have a black theme. It should have it just like Office 365.

  17. provide youtube tutorials for beginners on all Microsoft office 365 uses so it will be more user friendly

    I am surprised there isn't more user friendly tutorials for the uses of Microsoft Office 365.

    A very obvious notice should be an audio visual, like youtube, to make Microsoft Office 365 MUCH easier and quicker to master.

    Microsoft Office 365 would then be greater used and ENJOYED. You just cant beat audio visual teaching methods!!

  18. Add an "icon maker" feature to Publisher.

    Publisher is used to create different kinds of publications, documents and visual displays. It should have a feature that assists in making icons according to specs necessary for .ico files. Simple suggestion that would be a big help and allow the intellectual property I create belong to me. Thanks.

  19. More accurate message when restoring previous version in SharePoint

    When restoring a previous version of a document in SharePoint, if the latest version is checked-out, it will replace the current version.
    If you try to restore when the latest version is checked-in, SharePoint will create a new version.

    In both cases, SharePoint display the same warning message: “You are about to replace the current version with the selected version” Some users feel that this message doesn't accurately describe the second scenario above. They suggest that a different message should be display to reflect that SharePoint is creating a new version with content taken from a previous version.

  20. I can only purchase 10 GB of service a month - very rural America. I need to know how many GB installing takes.

    If the buyer knew how much data installation would take, her or she could plan ahead and if necessary go to a public library, etc. to complete the download.
