  1. allow admin to be able to monitor site usage without a third party tool

    It is so frustrating to not be able to know how much a site is being used. The current stats offered in SharePoint 2013 are a joke! 2010 was pitiful, but then in 2013 those were taken away for something that was completely convoluted. Please open up search and usage analytics for people to use to let our site admins know whether or not people are using SharePoint without paying an arm and a leg for third party tools!

    • Improve Site.LastItemModifiedDate

      The LastItemModifiedDate property of the site object in Office 365 reports the last time an item in the site was modified by either the system or a user. This causes a problem for anyone or any tool trying to do activity reporting to determine the last time a site was modified by a user. Please create a LastItemModifiedByUserDate and/or LastItemModifiedBySystemDate to allow us to distinguish the two.

      • Lower the permission requirements to view Site Usage Reports

        At present, you need Full Control to view Site Usage Reports. This seems unnecessary to view what is an on-demand obfuscated report. It should be a case of granting someone ‘View Web Analytics Data - View reports on Web site usage’ permission rather than resorting to Full Control just so a VIP can see how his site is used.

          • make the calendar overlay easily customizable...ie see description

            Please make the calendar overlay more customizable. At this time, if I overlay multiple calendars and see that I don't like the order in which the events appear on the main calendar, I have to delete all the existing overlaid calendars and start over completely. For any group like the ones I work with where there might be 4 calendars and 2 items on each calendar for any given day, deleting and starting over is not an option, so I have to go in and make sure that everyone knows "Please be sure to look at all items in a…

            • Sync SP Shared calendar with ms365 / OWA

              Our law enforcement agency consists of over 1400 users. Probably 90% of those users use OWA .. no licenses for the client. We also have many units that use SP and have a shared calendar on the SP site. Supervisors would like to be able to see this shared calendar in OWA. At this time the calendar can only be shared in the outlook client.

                • Microsoft Flow - Permission/Administration of this feature

                  Microsoft Flow is a new and interesting idea to easily integrate various, High Level process across multiple platforms. However, as an administrator, I feel there are HUGE concerns with allowing anyone with credentials into my environment to be able to create a Flow and have it post to a Facebook, Twitter, etc. bypassing any company's policy/procedure for posting company information into a public/community forum. Just on this reason alone, Microsoft Flow can be a dangerous tool, especially when people are just "testing it out". I feel there should be some form of administration allowed by SharePoint Online Admins to allow…

                    If a SharePoint Power User/ Champion user would want to know metrics and growth about a site without the need to purchase third party apps. The Report Builder can by used from SP Site Administrator to SP Site Power User to query where site column exists in which library or list. Or else maybe there is a need to find a list of the files that exists in a SharePoint site, maybe break it down to what are checked out files. Any query defined in the Report Builder can be exported to various file formats for future reference. A similar…

                        • A text with some line breaks of document sets is displayed as single line at welcome page

                              • to fix that huge pile of crap you call shitpoint

                                The amount of bugs is insane! Do you even test that code you write. Firstgraders, probably have less bugs than you. Add autosave to site editing, history for edited content, so i dont lose content every time i save page and "Something went wrong happens". Did you ever try to write bullets in wiki? Every time i try to write new bullet cursor returns to previous or next. Honestly, students on their projects, made a better wiki with support for wiki tags and not just three. It's not that hard.

                                    • Allow SharePoint calendars to be added to Outlook online.

                                      We currently have a number of SharePoint 2010 hosted, shared calendars that users add to their client outlook with the "Connect to Outlook" button in SharePoint. This feature when used in SharePoint 365 only adds to the client version of Outlook. Can it be changed to add a link to the online outlook as it seems impossible to add SharePoint calendars from Outlook online.
