  1. Method to check which user deleted a site

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    サイトを削除したユーザーを確認する方法
    Method to check which user deleted a site


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトコレクションを削除したユーザーを特定したいが、"Delete Site" を指定してログを取得すると User が システムアカウント (SHAREPOINT\system) で出力されてしまい、ユーザーの特定が行えない。
    検証したところ、SharePoint 管理センターで削除した場合は システムアカウント (SHAREPOINT\system) で出力され、サイトコレクションの設定画面から削除した場合は削除したユーザーが取得できる。
    削除手順に関わらず、サイト コレクションを削除したユーザーを確認できるように機能の拡充を希望します。

    I want to identify the user who deleted a site collection, but getting logs specifically for “Delete Site” shows the user as the system account (SHAREPOINT\system), so you can’t identify the user.
    According to our tests, if it was deleted from the SharePoint admin center it will appear as the system account, and if it is deleted from the site collection screen then the user will show up.

    I want to be able to use deletion labels for unneeded content on sites with retention policies applied.
    Please make this possible, since currently retention policies prevent deletion labels from functioning.

  4. Get a full path link to the original item, not a new shareable link

    Every time I try to get the "real" link to an item in sharepoint a new shareable link is created. I really really just want to link to the original item that I've posted to my sharepoint site, e.g. https://microsoft.sharepoint.com/teams/<team-name>/Shared%20Documents/<folder>/<item> so that existing people who have access can visit the item.

    Currently, there is no setting which can be used to automatically grant specified permissions under specific conditions which makes managing permissions difficult when users join or leave the company, so please add a way to specify conditions for permissions to automatically be assigned to users.

  8. Permissions History

    Give SharePoint Admins, Site Collection Owners or Site Owners the ability to view and restore the history of the permissions applied to but not limited to the site collection, Site, List item or Document. Basically a version history for permissions.

    Editing the side link bar on SharePoint sites


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能として SharePoint サイト の設定で、SharePoint Server発行インフラストラクチャ を有効化すると、サイド リンク バーの編集で直接階層の編集ができない動作であることを確認しました。
    SharePoint サイト の設定で、SharePoint Server 発行インフラストラクチャ を有効化後も、サイド リンク バーの編集で直接階層の編集が可能な機能を希望します。
    SharePoint サイトのサイド リンク バーを直接編集可能となることでスムーズな運用を可能にしたいと考えています。

    Under the current functionality, enabling SharePoint Server publishing infrastructure in the SharePoint site settings results in no longer being able to edit the direct hierarchy in the side link bar.
    Please make it possible to do this even with SharePoint Server publishing infrastructure enabled, since this would allow for smoother usage.

    現在の SharePoint Online ではサイトのスイート バーが編集できない仕様です。
    SharePoint Online にて多数のサイトをご利用中のお客様にとっては、どのページを開いているときでも、頻繁に利用するサイトへと瞬時にアクセスできる機能が追加されると非常に便利です。
    そのため、SharePoint Online のどのページからも確認できるスイート バーを編集しお好みのリンクを挿入可能になると、上記の利便性を実現することが可能になります。
    お客様に快適に SharePoint Online をご利用いただくために、上記の機能の追加を希望いたします。

    Currently in SharePoint Online, it is not possible to edit the site suite bar.
    For customers who use a lot of sites on SharePoint Online, it would be useful if the ability to quickly access frequently used sites was added.
    Therefore, if it was possible to edit the suite bar visible on all SharePoint Online pages and insert desired links, it would be more convenient to use in these scenarios. …

    ■Description(内容):
    現時点で SharePoint サイトの "ユニーク閲覧者" を確認するには、各 SharePoint サイトごとの [サイトの利用状況] 画面から個別に確認が必要となる。
    複数の SharePoint サイトを横断的に確認し、サイトの利用実態を確認する場合、SharePoint サイトごとに確認しなければならないのは煩わしい。
    SharePoint 管理センターなどから、複数の SharePoint サイトの対象に一括で確認できるよう機能の拡充を希望する。
    またこの機能が実現した場合、抽出対象についても Microsoft Teams チームに付帯する SharePoint サイトは除外するなど、抽出対象となる SharePoint サイトを選択できるよう、オプションの追加も併せて希望する。

    At present, in order to check “unique viewers” for a SharePoint site, you need to check each site from the “Site usage” screen.
    In order to check multiple different SharePoint sites, you need to check the usage on each site, and doing this one-by-one is inconvenient.
    Please add a way to…

    I moved pages from another tenant’s site, but became unable to open the page.
    Migrating pages isn’t currently implemented as a function, but it takes work to move created pages over from another tenant, so please make this possible.

  15. Include language variation folder for pages in the Site Usage's Site Pages section

    When a site is leveraging language variation, the pages that are created for the translations adopt the name of the parent page and are put into language folders, which causes issues when looking at the Site Usage Analytics for site pages since they all have the same name and the translation folder is not included. Please include the language folder (i.e., fr, zh-chs, az-latn, ru, etc) in front of the page names in the Site Usage Analytics Site pages section. An example of what we should see would look like fr/ThisPage.aspx, ru/ThisPage.aspx, etc.

  20. When Sharing a SharePoint site, set Default for "Send email" to Unchecked.

    Many of the malicious (phishing) types of e-mail circulating out there attempt to mimic legitimate messages coming from Office 365 and SharePoint Online. Thus, when we share our SharePoint Online sites with our contacts, we do not want an automated e-mail to be sent from SharePoint Online. I suggest that you implement a default setting for the "Send email" option in the Share panel when adding Owners, Members, or Visitors to a SharePoint Online site. We would adjust that default so that the "Send email" option came up Unchecked by default. That would help prevent generic e-mails from being sent…
