Required metadata not shown in Files tab
The file tab doesn't display the required columns from SharePoint. They are defined and shown in SharePoint!
A person that uploads files is not notified of required metadata!!!!
Agreed! This was the same complaint back in the day, when users dragged/dropped or used Open with Explorer. As long as there are ways to bypass metadata requirements, what's the point?

So very much agree. In addition, when uploading a file, we need those required metadata points to be filled in by the user. Without this, our taxonomy that we spent so much time on and our records management in SP goes down the tubes.
I agree, this is a key requirement for document management to work, if users can bypass adding required fields, then there is no point in enforcing metadata in the first place.
Records management is essential for most business's, so please keep it consistent for every way to save a file!
