During a sprint review, I watched Alvin enter a whole lot of data, close the form, click ‘ok’ and then lose all his work. Grrr!
Let’s change the OK button!
Figure 1: The default OK button tend to lead people not save the changes
The default ‘OK’ button led me to not save the changes. Which was very confusing!
On the other hand, most apps have the default button as Save the changes (e.g. Microsoft Word).
That is much more user-friendly.
Figure 2: The default button always saves the changes
This is important and in my opinion, I hope Microsoft fix this to make more sense.
Showstopper – Allow me to move items between lists (Like Trello you can move items between boards).
Figure: I’d love to see an ‘add entity’ option here
Figure: I often create and use Trello boards offline. It is a nice experience
Note: you can only take your data offline when using Dynamics 365 for Outlook. It is ‘no’ to anything else (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/mobile-app/v8/go-mobile/work-offline)
Why is the Dynamics App fixed as landscape? So weird.
Figure: Why do I *have* to turn my iPad on its side?
From the audit result, if you double-click a line and then click “More information”, here is what you see :

Which is great! A lot of useful information in there!
However, if you export the Audit result, here is what you get :

The whole “More information” data is a single column !!
It is indeed easy to format but requires extra work, and is not ideal.
Suggestion: make these information extra columns in the export!
Consider this search result:

When I click on “Details” (or double click), I can see :

This is terribly misleading ! The source is displayed as “/Shared Documents/xxx”, which I assumed being “sswcom.sharepoint.com/Shared Documents/xxx”, but is in fact “sswcom.sharepoint.com/sites/SSWNetworkAdmins/Shared Documents/xxx”. The displayed path is indeed relative, but relative to the site collection, not the whole tenant. Which is misleading in a “unified” log (where results can come from pretty much any site collection).
Suggestion: I would love to have options to:
- See the source Site Collection
- Filter down & sort by Site Collection
The “File, Folder or Site” box shouldn’t a simple text filter.
Say I want to have results for my root site only (sswcom.SharePoint.com) – without subsites (say, sswcom.SharePoint.com/sysadmins), I have currently no way of doing it. Searching for “sswcom.sharepoint.com” will give me results that are in subsites or pretty much anything that includes “sswcom.sharepoint.com”.
Suggestion: Either implement “smart” search with the keyword (E.g. “sswcom.sharepoint.com” AND (NOT “sswcom.sharepoint.com/sysadmin”)) OR add a multi-select dropdown to pick the sources (sites, subsites, teams, etc…)

Less noise – more value 😊
+ I’d like a 3rd graph for Business Value – see https://rules.ssw.com.au/do-you-estimate-business-value
Figure: Can you hide the 4 settings under the Setting Cog… and instead show the “Average Points”
I have 5 tabs open for the projects I am the Scrum Master or Product Owner of…
It would help to visually identify it with the logo or maybe I would put a picture of the Product Owner.
Figure: Allow me to put the product logo here
‘Ignore Conversation’ moves to the ‘Deleted Items’ folder. That folder is stuff I know I deleted.
I think that it should default to a new folder ‘Deleted – Ignored’
Figure: ‘Ignored’ conversations are currently moved to ‘deleted’ folder
