SharePoint App – help me view popular sites

In the SharePoint App, the Find page shows frequent sites and people, which is super useful for quickly getting to sites or people your often interact with. The same Frequent sites functionality can be used in other places in SharePoint with the Sites web part.

It would be great if there was also a Popular Sites section, and even a Popular People section (though that name might need some workshopping!). This would make it easier for users to find important sites quickly, even if they don’t access them often. It would be especially useful for new users.

With this addition, the existing sections may need to be renamed to be clearer, e.g. Frequent Sites would become My Frequent Sites.

Bug – Mobile View List differences between IOS and Android

Figure: View of list from Android – Expecting to see 9 fields
Figure: View of list on IOS – expecting to see 9 fields (or at least consistent with Android)
  1. Inconsistency – Why do I see different fields on the same SharePoint list when on Android vs iPad?
  2. Not seeing 9 fields – Neither of these views have the 9 fields that I have in the mobile view?

It seems that the app is ignoring all of the view settings.
